The Brooklyn Nets have recently been playing fairly well, and are currently 3rd in the Eastern Conference. They have three superstar caliber players in Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant, and it is hard to see anyone beat that team if they are all healthy. Their big three has been building chemistry, and it looks like they are finally hitting their stride. Their recent win was against the Golden State Warriors, a win where the Warriors looked like they were handily outmatched.
Draymond Green has recently commented on the Brooklyn Nets and suggested that the Brooklyn Nets are the best team in the Eastern Conference.
Draymond Green on the Nets: “They’re the team to beat in the East. My opinion.”

It makes sense that Draymond Green would feel this way. With James Harden fitting in seamlessly and sacrificing his own scoring to be more of a playmaker, the Brooklyn Nets look primed to win a championship. A big question about the Brooklyn Nets was whether somebody would be able to sacrifice for the betterment of the team. The Brooklyn Nets have answered that question with their recent play.
The Brooklyn Nets should be considered the favorites to get out of the Eastern Conference. The Brooklyn Nets had two stars who have the experience of winning a championship in Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, and they’ve added James Harden who is hungry to win his first. Their combination of talent should get them out of the East, though winning the championship itself is another challenge.
