Brook Lopez, Center

Brook Lopez is the only player in this starting five that has played his entire career with the Nets. In 2013 he averaged 19 points and seven rebounds per game, which that landed him on the NBA All-Star team.

The only thing keeping his career stats so low is how injury prone he’s been. His career stats currently stand at 13.6 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. He splashed onto the scene quickly as Rookie of the Year in 2009.

Some could make the argument for Billy Paultz instead of Lopez, but Lopez’s career isn’t even close to being over and has showed immense promise the last few seasons. He’ll remain a huge part of the Nets organization which is the final piece to the puzzle for why he is my starting center on this all time Nets Squad.
