With a new billionaire owner and the move to the swanky Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the Nets wanted to make a big splash. General manager Billy King went out and spent a fortune (ordered by Mikhail Prokhorov) to put together a championship contending team. What resulted was the most expensive roster in NBA history and trading away the team’s future picks to get that squad of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett which only made it to the second round of the NBA playoffs. The team has since made moves to lower the payroll and the overall age of the team. As they rebuild, King admits that championship window they had has now closed.
