More Disappointing Start: Knicks or Nets?
Cohen’s Analysis: Nets
Even though Brooklyn has more of an excuse to its horrid start – injuries to Deron Williams and Brook Lopez and on-the-job learning for head coach Jason Kidd – the Nets were supposed to be relatively “dominant” after acquiring Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett over the summer.
Aside from health issues and attempting to institute harmony in that star-studded locker room, the real problem may simply be that most of those household names are slipping further and further way from the pinnacle of their careers. We will be able to gauge the Nets better once Lopez and Williams return (both dealing with ankle injuries), however.
