Week Two of our NBA Previews continue. Last week, we revealed the bottom five teams in the NBA. This week, numbers 21-25 will be disclosed. (Click here for the complete previews of the cellar dwellers of the league.)
Coming it at #25, the New Jersey Nets. Jay-z’s team dealt their star player for two expiring contracts and a talented young player in hopes of setting themselves up to make a run at Hova’s boy, LeBron, next summer. For the time being, New Jersey will suffer through the growing pains of having a young roster.
(By the way, on Jay-z’s new album he raps, “If Jesus payin’ LeBron, I’m payin’ Dwyane Wade.” Who is Jesus in that line? Not the Lord and savior, right? And does this mean the Nets are gonna try to sign D-Wade? These are the questions that run through my mind when I hear this line.)
