As it currently stand he Brooklyn Nets are sitting at sixth place in the eastern conference. With their roster and the fact that they haven’t had their draft picks the last few years, this is extremely impressive. Their starting five includes D’Angelo Russell, Joe Harris, Rodions Krucus, DeMarre Carroll and Jarrett Allen. That is not a lineup of a playoff contender, the lineup should be near the bottom of the conference, yet here they are. One name that wasn’t mentioned is Caris LaVert, he has played extremely well and if it weren’t for his injury earlier in the year, he would be in the running for the most improved player. I personally think that there finally is hope for the Nets for the first time in a little while.
