Will Kevin Durant and company accomplish their one-and-only goal of winning an NBA Championship this year?   We’ll see!

In a recent poll of NBA General Managers, 72% of GM’s in the league feel that the Nets have the best chance to win the NBA Championship this year.   And Durant received the most votes from GM’s for who they thought would win league MVP (at 37%).

The Nets are loaded…with KD, a healthy James Harden, a resurgent Blake Griffin, an out-of-retirement LaMarcus Aldridge, and, of course, the mega-talented but controversial Kyrie Irving.   Will Irving play tonight?   He has declined to state whether he received the NBA-mandated vaccine…and thus he’s ineligible to play in the city of New York and San Francisco (due to local city laws).

However, the game is in Milwaukee this evening where the Nets will take on the defending-champion Bucks.   Technically, Kyrie would be allowed to play.   But the Nets, as of now, are saying Irving will be on the sidelines.

Nevertheless, this should be an excting season for Nets fans!   Check out some great video clips below!
