With the recent trades, the Brooklyn Nets acquired 32-year-old power forward Blake Griffin.

This Nets team is stacked with Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan.

Although all five haven’t played entirely together yet, they may make it to their third finals appearance with this roster.

The Nets currently sit at second in the eastern conference with a record of 27-13, right below the 28-12 Philidelphia 76ers.

Even with Kevin Durant’s hamstring injury, a healthy Kyrie Irving and James Harden are still putting in work, winning their last three games since the all-star break.

Although their starting lineup is injury prone, this team is something to look out for as we head towards the post-season when healthy.

Mark my words, if it’s not this season they make it, it’ll be within the next few years if everyone stays healthy.

With their recent performances, it looks like everyone likes being on the court together, and they all function well.

The duo between Irving and Durant and Irving and Harden have been exciting to watch. Fans are excited to see Durant and Harden share the court again on the same team since they’ve both been on OKC.

Also, the lob city duo between DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are reunited, so that’s another duo to look forward to.

With the sudden interest in JaVale Mcgee, the Nets are also looking to add more depth to the center position.

Overall this team is stacked more than capable of being more than just a playoff team.
