The answer to the question as to which of the three elite Eastern Conference teams between the Bucks, Celtics, and Sixers would the Nets match up best with is: D) None of the above. Sorry, but the fact that Brooklyn drew Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals as the sixth seed is no cause for optimism. It beats dropping into the play-in like last season, but the Sixers, despite the historical postseason underachievements of stars Joel Embiid and James Harden, are really good. And the Nets, post the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving trades, are not. Anyone in the media attempting to manufacture a competitive best-of-seven series on paper is doing its readers/viewers a disservice.
