Brooklyn Nets NBA Championship Odds 2023-24

The current Brooklyn Nets NBA championship odds are . Brooklyn’s roller coaster season came to a screeching halt in the first round of the NBA Playoffs; it got swept in four games by Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Nets made the playoffs primarily because of the impressive record that Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant helped them attain before they were traded in February. 

Now, Brooklyn will hope to rebuild its championship hopes in short order. Can the Nets surprise the NBA during the 2023-24 campaign?

Brooklyn went “all-in” on its big three of James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant, and its bet went terribly wrong. Now, the Nets have Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, Ben Simmons, Cameron Johnson, and Mikal Bridges, a vastly different team. While that return is not bad on the surface, as Bridges is an All-Star-caliber player and Cameron Johnson is a talented offensive weapon, it is not nearly good enough when considering they lost three of the 75-100 greatest players in the history of the game.

Can the Nets turn things around with this new-look roster and find a way to be competitive in an Eastern Conference that has achieved an impressive level of parity, or will they falter and fail to make the postseason? Check out their strengths and weaknesses below!

Reasons Why Brooklyn Nets Can & Can’t Win NBA 2023-24 Championship

Strengths

  • Depth: Brooklyn moved Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving for a boatload of draft picks, and a handful of players: Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Dorian Finney-Smith all came over in those two blockbuster trades. The Nets also have an elite rim protector in Nic Claxton. While Brooklyn has great depth, it does lack a superstar like Giannis, Steph, LeBron, or someone similar, which has seemingly been needed in order to win a championship in the past decade. The Nets’ odds to win the championship, or even make the playoffs, this upcoming season are slim.
  • Shooting: Shooting is a relative strength, considering that the Nets traded Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and lost their top three three-point shooters (Yuta Watanabe, Seth Curry, and Joe Harris) this off-season. Those losses would be enough to tank most teams in this particular department; however, this squad still rosters Spencer Dinwiddie, Mikal Bridges, Royce O’Neale, Cam Thomas, and Cameron Johnson. All of those players are capable of shooting in the upper-30s from behind the arc. Still, Brooklyn is not going to be a top-ten team from deep; it is more likely to land around 15th in this area.

Weaknesses

  • Lack of Star Power: Only a clairvoyant could have predicted all of the moves that the Brooklyn Nets made over the past few seasons. Unfortunately for Brooklyn, it went from having James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving to boasting no stars. The Nets’ big bet did not pay off. Now, Mikal Bridges is the star of the Brooklyn Nets, and there is no world where he alone can carry this team past the giants of the Eastern Conference.
  • Roster Concerns/Chemistry: Brooklyn has an entirely different roster that has only played a couple dozen games together. It’s going to be incredibly difficult for the Nets to be competitive when most of their players have not been together for even half of a year, so it could be tough sledding, particularly in the beginning of the 2023-24 season.
  • Rebounding: Brooklyn is an inexplicably poor rebounding team; it finished dead-last during the 2022-23 campaign in total rebounding percentage, 29th in offensive rebounding percentage, and 28th in defensive rebounding percentage. Further, the Nets ranked 28th in second-chance points and 25th in opponent second-chance points. The frontcourt of Nic Claxton, Ben Simmons, Dorian Finney-Smith, and Day’Ron Sharpe is going to have similar struggles this season.
