The Brooklyn Nets are currently considered one of the worst teams of the NBA. As of now, their record is 9-35 and they are the only NBA team that has not reached double digits in number of wins. The Nets are trying to find their way with first year coach Kenny Atkinson.
One major problem for the Nets this season was the injury of starting point guard, Jeremy Lin. He suffered two hamstring injuries and a back injury. Jeremy only played in 12 games this season, missing 32. In comparison to previous seasons, the Nets are not excelling the way they should be. Last year’s record for the team was 19-22, so this year has been a bit of a disappointment for fans. Before the season began, Nets general manager Sean Marks stated that the team will be focusing on progress and not wins. For example, in 2015, which was one of the Nets’ greatest years, one of their best players was Brook Lopez. He is still on the Nets team this year, but he is not playing to his full potential like last season. The Nets are not doing as well as previous seasons, and they need to step up their game if they stand a chance of getting back to the top.
