The Sports Bank will be counting down to the opening tip of the 2012-13 NBA season with team by team previews starting with the worst and working our way to the title contenders.  There is no lockout this time around so let’s get going.

With a move across the Hudson, new arena and logo, and remade roster; the now Brooklyn Nets’ much anticipated makeover is complete.  With all the money they spent this off-season, the team will undoubtedly be one of the most improved teams in the NBA but will it be enough for the franchise to compete for the Eastern Conference title?

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.)
