After a lot of rumors, Kevin Durant stayed in Brooklyn and that was the only thing that mattered for the Nets in the offseason. Now, following many years of failure, the franchise tries to build again a strong team around KD. James Harden was gone last season but, Ben Simmons will finally play on a regular basis and Kyrie Irving returns as Durant's best partner.
On the other side, the Miami Heat suffered a heartbreaking loss in the 2021-2022 Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics in an epic seven game series. All their main components will be back for the 2022-2023 NBA season with Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro. Still, the big question is Kyle Lowry considering he's not the same player who was a star with the Toronto Raptors (especially because of injuries).

Brooklyn Nets vs Miami Heat: Storylines
The biggest story for the Nets has to be Ben Simmons. Last year, in that blockbuster trade, James Harden left to Philadelphia but Simmons was supossedly the key piece to establish a championship defense in Brooklyn. He didn't play a single minute since his arrival. After his debut in the 2022-23 NBA preseason against the 76ers, Simmons said he felt great and seems to be recovered from the back injuries and mental health problems that kept him out for the entire season. These preparation games are crucial for him.
As we said before, the ingredients are back for the Miami Heat but most of their success will depend on Kyle Lowry (it's kind of like the Simmons' situation in Brooklyn). If Lowry's healthy, Miami is a top candidate to win the Eastern Conference. Without him, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo might fell short again as it happened against the Celtics.
