Joe Johnson thinks the best NBA team in New York City is the one that just traded for him: the Brooklyn Nets.
“The Nets. Definitely, the Nets,” Johnson responded Friday at a news conference at Brooklyn Borough Hall, kicking off what should be a riveting “East River Rivalry” between the Nets and the New York Knicks.
“This is a great day, because it’s a day when we put together the best backcourt in the NBA,” general manager Billy King said, alluding to pairing Johnson (four years, $89 million) with Deron Williams, who signed a max contract worth $98 million over five years.
