Coming into the 2021-22 NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets are heavily favored as the team to beat. With Kevin Durant looking to build off a successful run at the Tokyo Olympics where he won his fourth gold medal and James Harden and Kyrie Irving are expected to be back at full strength, the Nets will be coming with full force and ready to dominate next season.
Especially now that they’ve re-signed Blake Griffin and Bruce Brown, and made some new additions with the signings of Patty Mills, DeAndre’ Bembry, and James Johnson. Having said all this, let’s take an in-depth look at the three way-too-early and bold predictions for the Brooklyn Nets’ 2021-22 campaign.
Nets NBA Season Predictions
The Nets will be the league leaders in scoring and 3-point shooting by a wide margin
Now that the Nets will have Durant, Harden, and Irving coming back, they’ll without question have the most explosive offense in the NBA. Add to that a stacked supporting cast featuring Joe Harris, Patty Mills, Blake Griffin, and Bruce Brown and they’ve got one of the most explosive rotations that’s ever been assembled.
Between their limitless scoring range, killer ball handling, and stellar ball movement, the Brooklyn Nets are bound to set all kinds of scoring records while picking apart opposing defenses all year long. Led by an All-Star trio that’s eager to win the Nets their first title in franchise history, this Brooklyn squad is set up to be the most unstoppable offensive unit and electric 3-point shooting team by a mile if not more.
Considering how much shooting they’ll have across the board, this Nets squad may wind up being the highest scoring team in NBA history. Which wouldn’t be the least bit surprising with the limitless amount of scoring they possess on their roster. Come next season, the entire league will see the Brooklyn Nets take the 3-point revolution to the next level.
Brooklyn will be the number one-seeded team in the Eastern Conference
Looking to have a fully healthy and reshuffled roster heading into the 2021-22 NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets are widely considered the favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference. Especially now that they’ve had an entire offseason to build stronger team chemistry and rest and recover.
With a potential starting five of Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris, and Nicolas Claxton; the Nets will arguably bode the best starting line-up in the NBA. Not to mention they’ll have a ton of depth and a great mix of battle-tested veterans and young and developing talent.
Between the star power, depth, and experience of this Nets team, it’s hard to imagine them not coming into the playoffs as a one seed. If one thing’s certain, it’s that the Nets definitely want to hold home court advantage throughout the postseason and now they have the depth and talent to do so.
The Brooklyn Nets will win the NBA title in 2022
With the Nets boasting a stacked roster top to bottom and KD currently making his case as the best player in the NBA, Brooklyn is the overwhelming favorite to win it all next season. Especially now that they’ll get an entire season for Harden and Irving to mesh and showcase why they’re the most explosive backcourt in the league while continuing to break ankles and make near impossible finishes on a routine basis.
Kevin Durant will also look to continue his dominance and add another NBA title to his ever expanding Hall-Of-Fame resume with the possibility of winning another scoring title in the process. Now that they’re second unit has the perfect combination of scoring, lockdown defense, and playmaking, the Nets have a well-balanced roster that can give them the east crown and take them to their first NBA Finals in almost 20 years.
The additions of Patty Mills and James Johnson and the re-signing of Blake Griffin gives the Nets a trio of savvy veterans with strong postseason experience that provide them with depth and clutch scoring during crucial regular season games and down-to-the-wire playoff matchups. With their potent combination of star power, experience, and depth, the Brooklyn Nets definitely have what it takes to go all the way in 2022 and accomplish this feat.
Even with the Bucks, Sixers, and Heat re-tooled and ready to challenge them as the team to beat in the Eastern Conference, the Nets possess far too much firepower and talent to be denied of their inevitable title run next season. Watching this epic run will definitely be history in the making that the entire basketball world will be looking forward to witnessing.
