    Default Anyone worried that if D.Howard goes to the NJN's they would be better than us?

    Not to sound negative but having the best center in the NBA and one of the best PG's would make the Nets a top 5 seeded team in the East.It would remind me of the days when the Nets had Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin and Richard Jefferson. I just don't know why Howard all of sudden wants to go to a team that no superstar free agent wanted to go to in the past few years. I still think that the Knicks are a better team than the Nets even with Dwight Howard.But having to see Dwill and D12 on the same team 4 times a year will be a tough competition for the Knicks.

    its plausible for concern but i wouldn't be worried we can still beat them, our team compliments that we can fight them inside and out, it'd be battles but we can definitely take them

    Absolutely. Terrified!

    Best C in the game and D Wil. **** that! We don't need that in our division.

    We'd have them offensively, but when it comes to D12, there is not a team in the league that can suffer that beast. They'd be constantly on our tail or we on theirs.

    There were talks about Prokhorov over stepping the mark with Howard as a FA. I pray that it's true and the league take action and take their first rounders for them for the next 5 years.

    Not in the least. Melo-Stat-Chandler can take Howard and Williams

    Would definitely be an intriguing match-up every time.

    Meh it would be a good matchup but it doesn't make them better than us. A pretty close second yes but not better.

    Anyway Lakers gave up on CP3 and set their sights on D12, I think he'll go there. Dunno. Magic will take whatever the best offer is, I think Bynum is better than Lopez personally.

    I dont think so, Brook Lopez plus 2 first round picks? Dwight would be there right now.

    Two picks and a center who plays a lot (I don't know if he even missed a game) is a better deal than Bynum to me.

    yes they are but do they make you better than the Heat/Knicks/Bulls/Celtics no, I mean its either get younger or get not good but not bad, I rather suck and be young with the hopes of getting lucky in the lottery than to have Gasol/Bynum with no one else

    I'd def send him out west though I dont wanna see him 3 or 4 times a year

    ^ Exactly. Plus Brook is not even close to a replacement for D12 he has never come into his own in the center role he can't rebound... He's so average. Lakers can give them Bynum + salary dump + cash. Yes they would potentially get more "assetts" from the Nets and a less injury risk player but at the same time Bynum has the strength and size to actually be a decent replacement and slot in right away without too much adjustment.

    yes, I would be worried. I would be worried even if it was just Dwight Howard. That's 4 games against a 20-14+(random number of blocked shots). I dont wanna deal with that. Plus, from a marketing standpoint, I dont wanna hear about how great Jay-Z and Prokorov have been for Brooklyn. I love my hometown and they kicked out hundreds of people from their homes and businesses to bring the freakin' Nets? -___________-

    Id worry just as much as I worried about the Magic, which is not that much. Can Dwight dominate a game? of course. Do I think the Magic or the Nets are going deep into the playoffs? negative!

    Cuse.. Didnt all those people get paid out to move? I beleive the last person to leave got like a million dollars. Brooklyn would benefit from a succeesful Nets team the only downside I see is how crowded Atlantic Ave is going to be. Everyone I know form BK is excited about the Nets but maybe it's different when you know somebody who lived there.
