Nets

Nets about to get Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry while being able to keep Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez. WOW! That's a lot more than I expected.

They'll definitely beat the Heat and maybe be favorites with that team.

Hearing they'll give up 3 first rounders, Reggie Evans, Gerald Wallace and maybe a sign and trade of Keith Bogans

Jason Kidd has Laurence Frank and he could possibly win a title his rookie year of coaching.

I would love to see how J Kidd coaches those guys. But I don't think that this deal is going to happen....

The reason I'm saying that

The reason I'm saying that this deal does not happen is because of Wallace contract. You think a team that is rebuilding wants to take that contract on?

I hope the Nets enjoy half

I hope the Nets enjoy half court basketball with that starting 5 because there's no way they could push the ball against an athletic team all game. I confident there's going to be many low scoring games in NJ.

I'm also concerned about a future rebuild...3 years from now when Pierce Garnett and Johnson have aged out... the Nets have no 1st round picks because King has traded them all the last few years. 2 in the Deron trade, 1 for Wallace and now 3 more for this trade. A rebuild is going to be a B$%ch. Its the Lakers all over again... but without Howard as a potential starting point (if he resigns).

Let us not get carried away.

Let us not get carried away. That team won't "definitely beat the Heat." Garnett is a huge addition and should help shore up their defense, but I am not sure how well Williams, Terry, Johnson, and Pierce complement each other. They should definitely be a contender, but we have to wait to see how they gel and stay healthy before they can be anointed favorites.

Collecting talent is great, but there is only one ball. Having too many scorers can sometimes hurt a team's offense. Now, most of their players can play off-the-ball well, but that doesn't guarantee they will immediately blossom into an elite two-way team, like the Heat, Thunder, or Spurs.

I think this trade would be,

I think this trade would be, for now, the step into making Brooklyn a tile contender if Pierce would be willing to play corner 3 specialist. He's lost all of his athleticism.
