    We've got swap rights with Miami now next year so whether the Nets are great or just pretty good next year matters a lot less now.

    Give it 2-3 years. They'll need to pull a rabbit out of their hat to avert a fall.

    And Dinwiddie's going to get overpaid by them this offseason because they'll have no other choice and will be a bad contract on their books as their big 3 ages.

    Harden is a career altering injury waiting to happen with the way they are forcing him to come back early, the Nets picks are looking better and better. Thanks Dantoni!

    Well that's a shame. Nets traded their entire future and forgot to ask for both hamstrings. Thanks d'antoni for running harden into the ground all year, a Rocket at heart to the end!

    One leg is enough to make it to the strip club.

    good excuse... but we have seen over the years numerous chokings while on 2 legs. 2/12 3 point shooting in game 7 is inexcusable.

    Because his fat ass came into the season out of shape and wasn't taking care of his body like he should have. Age caught up with him not taking care of his body like he should.

    James not getting carried to a ring this year at least. Maybe Durant and Kyrie can get him one next year. But James being the catalyst for a team winning a ring ain't happening. 1 leg, 2 legs or damn 8 legs.

    This is true as hell. But that cat shouldn’t have even been out there. He couldn’t move at all. Playing NBA Basketball with no legs is damn near impossible.

    Harden and the Rockets will be playing in the same number of NBA Finals games this year. Guess he doesnt have any help in Brooklyn. Out in the second round.........again.

    Man, one of Booker, Embiid, Mitchel, and Greek will have one ring and Harden has none. Can you imagine how Embiid is going to brag if he gets a ring.

    Taking the easy way out turned out not so easy after all. Karma is a bitch.

    Next year if they don't win again for whatever reason, injury, bad luck, or not good enough, the big threes contracts are up and the whole thing breaks apart. No pressure though, not like bkn bet the franchise's entire future on this working out. Oh wait...

    He came in out of shape trying to force a trade and it bit him in the ass. He was on one leg. Watch the game. Dude couldn’t drive. Brooklyn was beat up and got sent home. It happens man. That sports.

    James usually gets along with his co stars for one year. Year two is when he typically clashes with his costar.

    All three of those guys have clashed with teammates before.

    The pressure will be increased next year for them to win.

    They've got a bunch of role players they are going to have to replace or re-sign.

    If those guys struggle a bit next year it could fall apart fast. We've seen it here firsthand.
