LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin join Harden, Durant, and Irving. WOW!!! Holy juggernaut Batman. In all my years of watching BB, I have never seen a team so stacked done by players' wishes. If the Nets don't bring home the Larry O'Brien I'll be shocked. In my mind, the only reason they don't win it all will be coaching. The making of the Brooklyn Nets is going to change the way business is done in the NBA.

We'll see. They've got a lot of offensive firepower but they're not really good on defense.

I'm not sure that Griffin and especially Aldridge were great signings for them big names, sure. But they're big names for what they did in the past and neither of them really addresses the Nets true needs.

Its an all star team 5 years ago....But Blake Griffin and Lamarcus Aldridge are on their last legs. They should win a championship just based on the core 3 players.

this should vindicate LBJ and the "superteam" slights against him.

the lakers are an old school 1-2 punch with competent role players. more in the fashion of shaq and kobe... kobe and gasol.

how can any of those dudes feel they deserved a ring with such blatant ring chasing? at least they had to force matt barnes to take his warriors ring. that guy gets it.

I like the Lakers over them if they meet in the Finals and the Lakers are healthy.

I could be very slightly biased.

Once upon a time, the Lakers had Shaq Kobe, Karl Malone and Gary Peyton and we saw how that turned out...
