There was the Brooklyn Nets before injuries limited their production during the regular season and weighed down, more specifically, their playoff aspirations.
The Milwaukee Bucks would end up taking the jack to the water in the overtime of the Game 7 Conference Semifinals to later win the championship. An outcome that has not overshadowed the role of New Yorkers in the slightest or what is expected of them for this new course: sit on the throne of the NBA.
For this they have not only maintained their core but have closed the hiring of names such as Patty Mills, James Johnson, Paul Millsap or LaMarcus Aldridge, who returns to the Nets after receiving the approval of the doctors and thus parks the withdrawal.
