Until a few minutes ago, the biggest news on the Nets’ draft front was the possibility of moving MarShon Brooks for a late pick. But, then: a WojBomb. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Nets were pursuing a deal that would bring future Hall of Famers Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn. Although the deal is far from done by any means (The deal can’t be finalized until July 10th anyways), we couldn’t help but pose a question:
“Fill in the blank: D-Will, Joe Johnson, Pierce, Garnett, and Lopez would ________.”
Answers ranged from dominance to disappointment and we’ve grabbed some of our favorites to give an idea on just how split the fans are:
