Next up in the Year in Review series is none other than the Brooklyn Nets! One team that went from the deepest depths of the basement to looking like a championship contender with two superstars in just one off-season. The Nets were a lovable loser in the last couple seasons, but now it’s time to shine.
Last year, we saw the emergence of D’Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Caris LeVert. All three of them were talked about amongst the up-and-coming talent in the league, and they carried the Nets to a sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Russell, unfortunately, became a victim of the big signings in Brooklyn and is headed to Golden State now.
Mike, Alex, and friend of the pod, Dennis Clausen of Rotoballer, talk about the season that was and look ahead to a big season coming in Brooklyn.

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
