The Brooklyn Nets have a bright future, but before they get there, they have to focus on an encouraging present. Brooklyn is currently sitting at 38-36 on the year, good enough for the seven spot in the Eastern Conference. While no one expects the Nets to be a legitimate championship contender when the playoffs roll around, they’re a good, exciting basketball team that might annoy a higher seed.

Another will have Kyle Kuzma show off Los Angeles.
