The Brooklyn Nets struggled during the preseason, finishing with a dismal 1-5 record. Still, Nets fans should not be deterred by the team’s lackluster preseason performance.
The Brooklyn Nets had a rough preseason, to say the least. They dropped five out of six preseason games, which is unimpressive if you hear it like that.
We were all high on the team after their first preseason contest, which turned out to be their only win. After that, though, many fans’ hopes began to falter. Not that you can blame them, but the preseason wasn’t a complete mess for the Nets.
