Cohen 8-Ball: Forecasting Title Chances

   

BROOKLYN NETS

CHANCES OF WINNING TITLE: 3%

Cohen’s Analysis: You didn’t expect to see the Nets on this list and maybe it’s too kind to have them on it. But let’s be fair, it is extremely early in the season, Brooklyn has dealt with numerous injuries and the Atlantic Division is extremely underprivileged.

Let’s also consider this; Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, who have been miserably disappointing in the early portion of the season, have showed in the past a burst of spirit in the playoffs. Remember in 2010 when many thought the Celtics would lose in the First Round of the playoffs, it was KG and Pierce that guided Boston to the NBA Finals.

If Deron Williams can overcome his ankle problems, if Brook Lopez can continue to display his exceptional offensive arsenal and if Jason Kidd can start to figure out an appropriate style of play for his team than the Nets still have outside shot of doing some damage in the playoffs (if they get there).
