This is Part 1 of The Glue Guys Brooklyn Nets season preview, joined by a special guest Managing Editor of The Brooklyn Game Devin Kharpertian. We take a player by player look at the roster, set our expectations and throw out some predictions for the year.

Part 2 takes a look at some of the big questions around the NBA: reasonable expectations for the Cavs, what direction are the Knicks heading in (up/down), why would the Spurs not repeat, and MORE!

For the third consecutive year, Ian Eagle joins The Brooklyn Game for a very special preseason podcast, catching up on all things Nets and Birdman.

Topics of conversation include: the Brooklyn Nets & the Eastern Conference landscape, the storylines in this upcoming Nets season, how Eagle actually got the job as the TV voice of the Nets (and how it involved a diner at 5:30 in the morning), Kevin Garnett's future, and more. At the end, I continue an annual tradition: asking him what he hates most about his color commentators. This year, it's Jim Spanarkel's turn.
