Speaking in an interview on ESPN 98.7 FM Friday afternoon – a day after the Nets stole the headlines from the draft they hosted at Barclays Center with a massive blockbuster trade that saw them land Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett andJason Terry from the Celtics – Van Gundy praised the move for the Nets.
“I think, for the short term, the Nets certainly have the best starting lineup, talent-wise, in the NBA,” Van Gundy said.
He then went on to praise Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov for spending the money to build a championship.

Maybe if it was 2008.
2008 for Peirce and Garnett 2010 for Jason Terry

Until someone gets hurt. Or locker room issues arise. Or the rookie coach has less than a crystal clear plan.

Health is always a concern. And I have some doubts with their coaching too, considering Kidd has never coached in his life lol.
If they stay healthy and Kidd can coach, they could challenge the Heat.
