The Brooklyn Nets are widely viewed as the favorite to win the NBA championship due to their status as an offensive powerhouse. They have some of the best superstars in the game, and even the role players on their roster are highly regarded around the league. Simply put, they look like a championship-ready team.
Their first matchup will be against the Boston Celtics. While the Boston Celtics do have superstar Jayson Tatum, there are few that think he will be able to lead them to victory over the Brooklyn Nets big three, as they are one of the most powerful superteams in recent memory. Coach Brad Stevens has stated that much and believes that they are the most talented team that has been assembled during his tenure in the NBA.
This isn't the first time that Brad Stevens has praised the Brooklyn Nets as a team, as Stevens has even said that "it's hard to see them losing" the series. While nothing is guaranteed in the NBA, it does seem like the Brooklyn Nets are simply too much for the Boston Celtics' roster to handle. There is no doubt that the Boston Celtics will be a solid defensive team under Stevens, but how do you guard 3 stars who can do most things on the court?
If the Nets don't win the championship, they will certainly be viewed as a giant disappointment. However, their talent suggests that they could go all the way. Their first step will be their series against the Boston Celtics.
