Lichtenstein: This Weekend A Good Test To See What The Nets Have Learned

This is as good a weekend as any to see if the Nets learned anything from their initial missteps. I want to see the Nets step on the Magic’s throat and not let go until the game is safely out of reach. Study the Heat film for tips.

When word got about the Joe Johnson trade, the general sentiment was that all but ended any chance of Dwight Howard patrolling the paint in Brooklyn any time soon. Not so fast my friend.

Dwight Howard: ‘Only One Team’ On List; Magic GM Confirms Request For Trade To Nets
