Blake Griffin finally getting his opportunity to win a title with the Brooklyn Nets.

On March 7th, Blake Griffin agreed to a deal with the Brooklyn Nets for the rest of the season. Griffin was done wasting his time with the Detroit Pistons. He decided to join a team that he believes can actually compete for a championship. He knew his old Pistons team wouldn’t be able to make it to the playoffs. The Pistons currently sit in last place of the eastern conference. With no superstar players around him since the Clipper days, Griffin looks to make the most of this opportunity. He only has one goal in mind and that is to win.

Brooklyn Nets Superstars

With the addition of Blake Griffin, the Brooklyn Nets now have four superstar players. These players being Griffin himself with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden. Each of these players have led their own team in the past. Griffin had the Pistons, Irving had the Cavaliers, Harden had the Rockets and Durant had the Thunder. With Irving and Durant both having rings already, they look to get Harden and Griffin their first championship.

High Expectations

It is without doubt that the Brooklyn Nets are now the favorites to win this year’s championship. Therefore, anything other than that will be a disappointment. With that being said, they’re still teams out there that can compete with them. For example, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers could still possibly beat them in a seven game series. Some other teams that can beat them are the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers. As a matter of fact the 76ers are still first in the eastern conference.

Greatest Super Team Ever?

The NBA has seen their fair share of super teams. There has been the Miami Heat with Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. The most recent one being the Golden State Warriors with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. This new Brooklyn Nets team though might be the best super team of all time. They have three players that can basically score whenever they want and top five power forward in the league. Not to mention they have a solid center in DeAndre Jordan, they have the best starting five in the league without a doubt.
