Comparing the superteams of last decade: The Miami Heat and the Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are the current powerhouse of the NBA. The teams boast a juggernaut of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden.
“We had to gain each other’s respect. Every day, Chris Bosh had to prove to me how good he really was. D-Wade and LeBron would go at it.”

While talking to Haslem, the talkshow host Cowherd touched upon how he thought that the Nets wouldn’t win a championship. As they had played only a handful of games together.
To which Haslem responded by saying that he thought that they were a very talented group. The Heat veteran also added by saying how important the supporting cast of a team was. Haslem cited examples of himself and Mike Miller while adding to this.
The Nets have a great supporting cast in veteran Jeff Green, Blake Griffin, and Mike James. These players have always chipped in during the crucial moments of the match.
The Heat won 2 championships out of their 4 trips to the NBA finals. LeBron James was the back-to-back Finals MVP.
The Brooklyn Nets are considered to be one of the greatest offensive teams ever assembled. Though their Big 3 haven’t played many games together they have been able to flip the switch when it has actually mattered.
