No one roots for Goliath, which is why Nets are NBA's most disliked team by a longshot
Super teams never seem to settle well with fans. From Miami's big three, to Golden State and now Brooklyn, no one roots for Goliath.
The Brooklyn Nets are fully loaded with a plethora of star talent, but what rubs fans the wrong way about this club?
Is it how James Harden forced his way out of Houston and showed up out of shape and unwilling to play for the franchise?
As for Kevin Durant, was joining a 73-win Warrior team enough to annoy most? How about unceremoniously leaving the Bay Area in the middle of a potential dynasty? Or to add insult to injury, joining forces with Kyrie Irving and Harden in Brooklyn?
Irving all but mailed it in during his time in Boston and showed every inclination to join his childhood team in the Nets and bring a first ever championship to the franchise.
With a littany of reasons to despise how this Nets team has come together and the polarizing nature of each star's personality, Brooklyn is an easy target for those still drinking the hater-ade.
Whatever the case may be, the collection of basketball prowess Sean Marks somehow collected out of thin air is nothing short of astonishing.
The Nets are the talk of the NBA world and the benchmark by which every other team is measured.
For the first time in their NBA history, the Nets are the team with the bullseye on their back.
The club that catches the vitriol and animosity of fans of the other 29 teams, is the odds on favorite for a title. The heavyweights are primed to knockout the competition, much to the chagrin of the viewing public.
