Is it time for the Nets to panic? Yes. This is the playoffs. Adjustments need to be made before it’s too late. Win or go home. Win or go home. Win or go home. If something doesn’t change the Nets are gonna get swept. Swept in 4. Don’t worry. I’ve got the solution. What invigorates a flaccid team more than anything? Drastic lineup changes!
First step: give Kevin Garnett to a nice farm family and let Mirza Teletovic start. Garnett is done and can’t shoot threes. Mirza still has lots of vitality and can shoot threes. He was the only one who showed up tonight and would be the hero if Deron Williams didn’t eat 15 more pregame cheeseburgers than he had points scored tonight.
Which brings me to my next point: it’s time to see if Marquis Teague has anything to offer. Deron Williams is fat and doesn’t care. I bet Marquis would play his butt off if you even gave him a minute, much less 30 or 40. What’s the worst that could happen? They lose? No difference then.
I have more ideas on how to fix the Nets. I’m not gonna just give them all out for free, though. So you only get one more. Maybe they should try playing some games at home. I hear the home team has some sort of advantage that they could possibly use to win a game.
