Jason Kidd would welcome an opportunity to end in a Brooklyn Nets uniform… or a New York Knicks one: “‘That would be a lot of fun, to be able to help a young player like that,’ Kidd said of Lin. ‘”He has all the tools. We saw that before he got hurt. To help him understand it’s a long season, to pace yourself, and that he’s got to work extremely hard. Also, to share the things that help me be successful and help him be a better player.'”
Dwight Howard and Carmelo Anthony are the lead NBA players starring in the Chinese sci-fi film “Amazing,” a film presumably about the lengths players go to avoid playing in New Jersey.
Sports economist Dave Berri lists Deron Williams as the ninth-most overpaid player in the NBA. I should note that I’ve never personally agreed with Berri’s methods, and from a broad view, his conclusion is understandable; the Nets paid Williams upwards of $16 million to lead a 22-44 team. What that analysis doesn’t cover is the nuanced effect from his teammates, and why a point guard on an injury-decimated, sloppily constructed team might have such an uphill battle to climb.
