The 2018-2019 season been a huge success for the Brooklyn Nets, whether they lose in Game 5 of the NBA playoffs or not. A 42-40 regular season record while earning the sixth seed in the East sounds a whole lot better than 28-54. A huge contributor to that improvement has been Caris LeVert, coming into his third season after being a first-round pick in 2016.

LeVert’s first two seasons were solid, but year three has been another story.

LeVert became Brooklyn’s go-to guy down the stretch for reasons like this:

A 28-6-5 stat line, while shooting 8-13 from the floor, including a buzzer-beater against the New York Knicks, and LeVert was just getting started.

A series of 20+ point games from LeVert was capped off with another dagger in Denver (this was one of only seven home losses for the Nuggets this season, a league-best mark).

Then came November 12th against the Timberwolves—a moment that Nets fans, and basketball fans, will never forget.

In the first 14 games of the season, LeVert was averaging 18.4 points per game, with four rebounds, while shooting a career-high 47 percent from the floor.

Just like that, LeVert’s potential breakout season was overor at least we all thought.

Now the whole world is talking about his talent in the playoffs. LeVert is averaging 21 points a game against the Sixers, shooting 48% from the field and 53% from three, LeVert is doing everything possible to keep Brooklyn alive.

Games 3 and 4 in Brooklyn were a highlight-reel for the Nets guard.

LeVert has, hands down, been the best player for the Nets in the playoffs. Him and Threeangelo are going to be special for years to come.

Growing up in New Jersey, the tri state offers up some amazing franchises to support. I’ve stuck with some but branched off to others. I’ve stayed loyal to the New Jersey-now Brooklyn Nets, who are turning out pretty good. While the Yankees are the best baseball franchise in history. Seeing a St. Louis Rams fan in New Jersey was almost unheard of before moving to Los Angeles. Mainly due to the fact of how horrible they were. Years of misery are finally starting to pay off as they’ve turned into a force in the NFL as the Los Angeles Rams. These are teams I love and support every day, so why not turn my passion into something more?
