The DLO trade will be a gem to us, aside from removing Lopez DLO clashes with Lin, who is their engine and them clashing probably makes the Nets a dysfunctional team to add on them being crap. I expect to bottom 3 finish for them this year.

Lin has quite a nice contract, you have to think he may be moved to a playoff team at the deadline, someone looking for a decent back up point guard. That's only going to make the Nets worse as well.

The Suns have to be better than the Lakers, I don't know how someone can look at the roster and not see that. It's fairly clear that the 3 worst teams in the West are the Lakers, Suns and Kings. I could quite easily see the Lakers finishing at the bottom of those 3.

Lin's contract is not a good one at all.  $12 million this year with a 10% trade kicker, and a player
option at $12.5 million for next year is an awful lot for a player who's no better than backup material on good teams.  If it were a true expiring, I could see a team biting, but that's a lot of potential payroll to take on for next summer, and Lin presumably is smart enough to see how the market tanked for non-stars this summer, and thus could be expected to opt in.

I can see Lin and Russell having chemistry problems. Both need the ball to be most effective.

Oh wow I got that completely wrong! For some reason I thought he was $6m for the next two years, weird. Well that obviously makes moving him difficult.

Nets have the 7th most difficult strength of schedule this season

Levert and Harris talking about the upcoming season. Levert references them being a top 7 team in the East when all their guys were available, anyone got any knowledge on that? I would find that very, very hard to believe.

He tries to downplay losing Lopez but he was a threat inside and out last year, that isn't going to be easy to replace.

They aren't even going to sniff a starter place so they're irrelevant. Bottom 3 team guaranteed.

In regard to Russell, Levert said,
Quote
“He wants to win more than people give him credit for. I know he has a lot of people to prove wrong. I know he will prove a lot of people wrong.”

Here's a good rule of thumb: Anytime you have to reassure fans that a particular player wants to win, you can be pretty [dang] sure that the player in question just doesn't care.

Fwahahaha. Yeah, they were also undefeated on nights when they outscored their opponent!
