Lopez: Title Realistic Goal for the Nets
Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez, who was in town last weekend for the NBA 3X event, said he believes that the newly relocated franchise has the tools to win the Larry O’Brien trophy in the upcoming season.
Lopez is part of the Nets’ “Core Fore” of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace.
“Obviously our main goal is no question the NBA championship. I think it is realistic for us. We’re already a good playoff team so with the addition of other pieces, we can target the ring,” said Lopez, who was recently re-signed by the Nets to a four-year deal.
Despite coming off a season-ending foot injury last season, the good-natured Lopez has stated that all his injuries are now water down the bridge, and that he is raring to prove it on opening night against their cross-town rivals, the New York Knicks.
