It is an interesting time to be a member of the Brooklyn Nets.
Additionally, it is also an interesting time to be a fan of the team.
Within the last few weeks, the team was altered in some Earth-shattering ways.
First, Kyrie Irving demanded a trade and left the Nets for the Dallas Mavericks and then Kevin Durant also departed for the Phoenix Suns.
It’s been a very disappointing and shocking period for the Nets.

Because of this, General Manager Sean Marks sent a letter to season ticket holders, informing them that the team would eliminate the auto-renewal program that automatically signed people up for season tickets for the upcoming year.
In the letter to fans, Marks said “We recognize that being a fan is a unique expression of who you are” and thanked them for sticking by the team through thick and thin.
He promised that the organization would soon reach out to people to start an “open dialogue” about their memberships soon.
There is a chance that many of these people will want to remain ticket holders, especially after what they have seen over the last week.
The Nets have gone 2-2 since Durant was traded (although, to be fair, he wasn’t playing before he was traded due to injury) but there have been some great performances from the team.
Cam Thomas has been very exciting and newcomer Mikal Bridges blew fans away the other night with a 45-point showing.
Durant and Irving are gone but there is reason to believe the Nets could continue to impress.
They are the fifth team in the East and although they might drop down before the playoffs, they could still give fans something to cheer about.NEXT: Kevin Durant Reveals His Feelings About Kyrie Irving's Trade Request
