The Brooklyn Nets have assembled one of the best superteams in recent memory. Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and James Harden make a formidable big three who can beat any team when they’re on fire. During the regular season, the Brooklyn Nets don’t have to try that hard to make the playoffs. The way we should evaluate how the Nets are doing should be by viewing their record against winning teams, which are the teams they will be playing in the playoffs.
The Twitter page MJs GOAT has recently posted an amazing statistic about the Brooklyn Nets. They are 12-1 against teams that are .500 and above while winning six straight games. The user also suggested that nobody could beat the Nets in a series.
Nets are now 12-1 vs teams above .500 and have won 6 straight games
Sorry but nobody in the East is beating this team 4 times in 7 games …

Many people have had responses to this statement: there were a variety of opinions, with some agreeing with the Twitter user and others responding to the statistic with reasons why it doesn’t mean that much.
The 76ers can if they make a move at the trade deadline

Lackluster defense comes to the fore in the playoffs

Come play offs, when the pressure is on, I believe the heat, Celtic and Sixers have a chance to beat them, not saying they will, but those will be the 4 teams in the east

Needless to say, the quote itself was controversial due to the many different fanbases on Twitter. Lots of people want the Brooklyn Nets to succeed, but a lot of people also want them to fail. It remains to be seen what will happen with this superteam, buy the Brooklyn Nets look like a true championship contender.
