The Kyrie Affect

Brooklyn: Nets fans are looking forward to the 2021 season, the expectations are high. Will the Nets be the team to beat in the Eastern Conference? With Kyrie Erving and Kevin Durant leading the way. Most of the NBA analysts are predicting it will be a cakewalk for the Nets to the NBA finals.

The team has a number of players that will demand playing time. How will this play out in the locker-room? Will newly hired head coach Steve Nash, have the ability to manage a team of superstar? Can he corral the troops in to believing the the next man up concept to reduce the amount of tension among players.

Caris Lavert and Spencer Ditwity are the future of the team. Both players have exhibited the ability to lead the team. Levert prove he has the skills to be mention as one of the top shooting guards in NBA. During the 2020 playoff’s Levert was spectacular, putting the team on his back, leading the team to the second round. Lavert averaged 18.8 PG and 5 assist over 70 games. Although Dittwity opted of the bubble due to the Corona Virus, he average 20.6 PG and 7 assist, over 60 games last season.

The elephant in the room, Kyrie can be very divisive. Will he allow the coaching staff the opportunity to coach him? Or will Kyrie imposed his will to be the (Smartest Guy In The Room). This philosophy can be very explosive among players and coaches. If Kyrie decides to be the ultimate teammate, Brooklyn should be the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.
