Coming into this season, the expectation for the Brooklyn Nets is that the team is in a rebuilding stage. If the preseason is any indication, this season could be a struggle. They finished the preseason with a 1-5 record and there was a learning curve on both ends of the floor with a new head coach and a new system. The motion offense has received the most attention and while team ball is a positive, many fans have been disappointed that there were not many pick-and-roll plays between Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin. It makes sense to involve the two best offensive players as often as possible, but as of now, head coach Kenny Atkinson seems to be saving the pick-and-roll for once the regular season starts. He has many new players on the roster and has a difficult job of trying to find the right combination to give the Nets the best chance to win.
