LeBron James likes what the Brooklyn Nets have done this season, and believes the NBA will benefit from Brooklyn’s potential success.

Asked specifically about Brooklyn’s additions of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry, James told ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst, “I thought they brought three champions to their team. They’ve added a championship coach (Jason Kidd). So I think they’re gonna be good.

“Chemistry is always the issue when you bring new guys to a new team, but I think those guys have sacrificed before, so it shouldn’t be a problem, and I think it’s good for the league.”

The Nets went 0-3 against the two-time defending champion Heat last season, losing by an average of 21 points per game.

“They’re the blueprint, they’re the champs, they won it twice in a row, [and] they could have won it three times in a row,” Kidd said this offseason. “They put that team together to try to win championships, and they've had a lot of success. So if you want to compete with them, you've got to have the horses. And I think we have that.”
