We cannot win on this one. To the extent it is a bad move by Brooklyn, it is a good move for Boston. The Celtics are probably out of the picture for a couple of years at least. They will surely be lottery next year, but that will give them a chance for Wiggins or some other impact player in the very strong 2014 draft. They will have 9 first round draft picks over the next five years. Brooklyn is plainly in a win now mode, but they will have paid a price we Knick fans know well.
The Nets have become a poor man's version of last season's Lakers. They have an overrated PG who hasn't proven that he could carry a team in the playoffs, a borderline all-star big man who can't average more than 7 rebs a game, 3 past their prime players who are one major injury away from retiring, and a guy who has never coached one game of professional basketball in his life. I am predicting it now, the Nets will win 45-50 games next season and will lose in the second round to either Chicago, Indiana or Miami.
