Brooklyn Nets ready to roll in Boston
Nets To Kick Off Hollins Era Against Celtics Wednesday Night
Two years ago, the Nets arrived in Downtown Brooklyn touting what they claimed was the best backcourt in the NBA – Deron Williams and Joe Johnson — and a desire to take over the city from the East River rival Knicks.
Prior to last season, Brooklyn announced that it was title-ready, having acquired the likes of future Hall of Famers Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett from Boston in an attempt to grab the franchise’s first-ever NBA championship.
Entering their third season in our fair borough, which begins Wednesday night in Boston, the Nets have remained noticeably mum on the matter of how far they can go, perhaps letting their play on the hardwood speak for them.
At least that’s the way new head coach Lionel Hollins seems to prefer it: Less talk and more action, especially on the defensive end.
