Coach Avery Johnson is making sure you pay attention to the quality of the team and not get blindsided by the star power behind it. Just because the Nets moved from Jersey to Brooklyn doesnt take away that you still have the same team, with only slight changes.
“Deron was a big key to the whole puzzle,’’ Avery Johnson said. “To be able to acquire some other talent through free agency or trades or re-signing some of our own guys, it’s pretty exciting for us. We’re not there yet. We’re not a championship team. We got a lot of work to do. But at the same time, we have a much better talent pool than we’ve had the last two years.
“We’re much more versatile than we’ve ever been. Right now, we look good on paper. Now we got to take it from looking good on paper and apply the work to go (forward).’’
