Fresh of the heels of Joe Johnson week, Zach Lowe of SI.com caught up with the new Brooklyn Net and spoke with him on a number of different topics, including New York City and its absurd living costs.
Also this, on the Nets upcoming expectations:
SI.com: So is the goal to win a championship in Year 1? Or do you look at Miami and think, “Wow, even they needed a year to figure it out and gel”?
Johnson: That’s what we are shooting for — the ring. There’s no need to sell ourselves short. You talk about gelling and figuring it out, and I think we have the perfect pieces: a great point guard, a great center. I don’t think any of our positions are the same or overlap at all.
Anyway, take a look at the full transcript as it’s definitely a peak inside Johnson’s brain about his thoughts on the upcoming season.
