NBA analyst Jay Williams believes that the Brooklyn Netstrade for James Harden has led to them becoming the best superteam in league history.

“If there’s anything that should grab Kyrie Irving’s attention, it is this trade,” Williams said. “This trio is better than the trio that I saw when Kevin Durant went to Golden State and that’s with Klay Thompson and that’s with Stephen Curry.


“It’s better than the trio that I saw with LeBron James and D-Wade (Dwayne Wade) and Chris Bosh in Miami. People are going to ask questions about how do you make it work.


“Here’s how you make it work. Kyrie Irving move off the ball. James Harden, you are on the ball. James Harden averages around 10 assists per game. If you watch the game last night against the [New York] Knicks, Kevin Durant doesn’t need the ball in his hands.”

Williams explained how dominant the Nets can be offensively as the reason why he believes this trio could be the greatest ever.

“I think they might be the best assembled in the history of the league,” Williams exclaimed.

With Durant and Harden, the Nets have two former MVPs. Irving is a six-time All-Star and made one of the most clutch shots in NBA history in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

There is no doubt that the Nets have the talent on paper to be one of the greatest teams ever.

However, it will be intriguing to see how the trio meshes once it actually gets together on the court.
