When I wrote the first Nets Fail Watch, I listed games where there was a possibility of the Nets winning. Since then, they won the first two games on that list, putting them at 9 wins. What'll it be, Jersey? Certainly it wouldn't be a victory against a San Antonio squad who's fighting for the playoffs, right?
Well, Brook Lopez is either playing out of his mind or playing as he usually does (either one), and the Nets played nearly error free basketball to win 90-84. That makes it win 10, but more importantly, it makes them just another god-awful team.
What do you remember about...
the 07-08 Miami Heat
the 04-05 Atlanta Hawks
the 02-03 Denver Nuggets
the 00-01 Chicago Bulls
...other than the fact that they must have been shit for me to even bring them up? Of course...the teams that are just plain bad are forgotten immediately. Sometimes that happens and your team moves to Memphis where it's once again forgotten. Other times, your team drives further and further into the ground, ignored by the public. This Nets team will bullshit whatever is left of its fanbase about the "strong end to the season." Next, they'll crow about the #1 pick...and whoever they choose, it'll be the "right fit" and will lead to advertisements on their "exciting young ballclub." Maybe it'll work.
Maybe the fans will care, too. Maybe...
