Newly acquired Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson isn't shy about saying who he thinks is the best team in New York City.

"The Nets. Definitely, the Nets," Johnson said at Friday news conference at Brooklyn. "I haven't been this excited since my Phoenix days," when asked what he thought about him and guard Deron Williams playing together.

Of course, those afflliated with the organization are going to agree with him as Nets general manager Billy King took it one step further.

"This is a great day because it's a day when we put together the best backcourt in the NBA," referring to Johnson and Williams, who signed a contract worth $98 million over five years this week.
The Nets haven't made the playoffs since 2007 and have gone 58-172 the past three last seasons, including a 22–44 record last season in New Jersey.
