What's up people! My name is Jaipal and today (in my second post) I'm going to bring you my knowledge, thoughts, and opinions on the Brooklyn Nets. Comments, seriously. I'm getting a few, but I could use more.
Anyways, the Brooklyn Nets are the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference, who are currently playing the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls lead the series 3-2 and they play tonight. Let's see if it's a clincher or if it goes to a game 7. Their starting lineup: Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, and Reggie Evans. Deron Williams is someone I consider to be overrated. I don't like him. But I can't deny that he used to be a beast back when he played for the Utah Jazz. Back then, he was healthy. But right now, he isn't the high caliber player he used to be back in Utah. Brook Lopez, as you may know, is my all time favorite center in the league. He averages about 12-13 rebounds per game (more than Bogut, Kyle) and a nice 17 points per game. He has seriously upped his game this season, as he is now a rising star in the NBA. His brother, not so much (Robin Lopez on the Hornets is the worst defender in the NBA). You guys should seriously look up the Will.i.am power song intro to the playoffs on YouTube, if you haven't already seen it. Joe Johnson used to play for the Atlanta Hawks, but he got traded. He is amazing, especially with those buzzer beaters of his, which always seem to happen. They lost that triple OT game against Chicago, but he still allowed that to even happen in the first place. He is an amazing all-star who has the ability to create some space. Gerald Wallace is one of the fastest players in the NBA, and he's also a sometimes successful playmaker. He is awesome, as he can draw fouls on you pretty easily. Reggie Evans is a big, bald, black man with a beard who is extremely powerful and is an amazing rebounder, but a terrible shooter. He is key in second-chance points for the Nets. The Nets haven't really hit a hot streak as of yet, but if they play the way they did in Game 5, then they will kick butt.
Notable players off the bench would be CJ Watson, who is an amazing shooter. He is a beast veteran player who is an amazing leader for his teammates, as he offers experience to those beneath him. I understand that he is nearing his end, just like Richard Hamilton. They're probably going to have the same sendoff as Rasheed Wallace did, who retired this year while playing for the Knicks. This is my second post of the day and my final. See ya next post!
