Eye on Basketball Podcast: Brooklyn Nets' offseason report

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

The Brooklyn Nets have had themselves an extremely productive and expensive offseason. I'm joined by Matt Moore today on the podcast to figure out just how fruitful all of that spending can be for them. Is this team a contender in the Eastern Conference? Is it easy to know that without knowing what type of coach Jason Kidd will be right away? Can they figure out going against teams rooted in their defensive systems like the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers? If the Miami Heat weren't in the picture, could the Nets theoretically win the championship?

The Nets' lineup possibilities are fascinating but it's going to take a lot of ego checking in order to maximize the possibilities. Brook Lopez and Deron Williams are your two best offensive options. Should Joe Johnson or Paul Pierce be your third scoring option? Does it actually matter to either one? Is it possible to get away with Pierce defensively? Do the Nets simply have too much talent for any of these questions to matter?

We discuss all of this, plus rivalries, team names, and whether or not hot shooting is annoying.
