Nobody has higher expectations for themselves than Jason Terry. “This year, (my goal is) to get back to the title of being one of the best sixth men to ever play the game,” Terry boasted. “If I do that, my presence will be felt, and hopefully it will equate into a championship.” A good goal, […]

What's in the kit?

"Call it 'the kit'." - Jason Terry

While the Brooklyn Nets get away for training camp, rookie Mason Plumlee is the one guy returning home. “For Mason, being back home is comfortable,” said head coach Jason Kidd. “He knows this campus very well.” But Plumlee is no longer the big man on campus. After a sensational senior season at Duke, a university […]

Don’t make me regret this

Kevin Garnett

I wanted to start out this post by just saying thanks to everyone for sticking it out with me the last month. We’ve had some fun times, we’ve watched some interesting signings and we’re due for what should be a phenomenal season.

Woj: Popeye Jones to Indiana

Via Adrian Wojnarowski, former Nets assistant coach will be joining Frank Vogel’s staff in Indiana. Jones wasn’t retained following the PJ fire and J-Kidd hire. My guess he is just really wanted to continue coaching CJ Watson, obviously. In any case, I prefer Roy Rogers to Popeye’s any day of the week.

More Doc on Nets trade

Rod Boone from Newsday interviewed Doc Rivers on the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett trade, and Doc had some nice things, again, to say about his former players. With Paul, Doc believed that the trade to the Nets would “rejuvenate his career.” There are tons of good quotes in the article, but here are some highlights: “Brooklyn […]

Nets rank 8th in SB Nation preseason rankings

There is a few things in the sports world that we give grades to, that drive me nuts. Post-draft grades are number one. Preseason rankings are number two. Okay, I’m complaining because I would have ranked the Nets higher than 8th. I think they are better than a few of these teams that they were […]

Kidd to use Elysium to help with coaching

In today’s worthless news story of the day, Jason Kidd revealed at the premiere of the movie Elysium (yeah, I’ve never heard of it either) that he plans to use the plot of the movie to help with his coaching style. Okay. Here’s some quotes. Growing up did you have any futuristic movies or books […]

NBA schedule to unveil Tuesday

Mark your calendars, folks. The NBA will unveil the complete schedule Tuesday at 3pm on NBATV. We already know some tentative games, like Nets in Cleveland to open the season and Nets vs. Heat for the home opener, but nothing else is official. That, of course, will change on Tuesday. And I’m excited.
