Joe Johnson, then and now

Welcome to day five of Joe Johnson Week. Joe Johnson has been in the NBA for 11 seasons, and I’m not sure many fans really know who he is. Not that they don’t know that he exists, or that they should know him away from the court, but that they don’t know what he is […]

Dwight Howard: Krypton’s Impostor

Manhood is a tough thing. It comes with it a lot of responsibilities and a standard of being independent, which regardless of the various times of the world, isn’t easy. Being 26 years and being a multimillionaire comes with it tons of weight – the weight to be responsible, to do well, to placate and […]

Meet Eric Gordon

Meet Eric Gordon, one of the most promising young players in the NBA from the past four seasons. Gordon, a natural shooting guard (who can play point guard in a pinch), made his name in the league as the starring (and starting) two-guard of the Los Angeles Clippers from 2008-2011, before a trade to the […]

Net Worth: Kris Humphries

Stats: 62 GP, 62 GS, 13.8 PPG, 11.0 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1.2 BPG, 0.8 SPG, 53.9 TS%, 17.98 PER Preseason Outlook: After a career season, Kris Humphries went into free agency expecting a big contract and ended up re-signing with his old team for just one year. I think this only works to the Nets […]

The Brooklyn Nets and Jay-Z get new commemorative shoes!

  I remember the good ol’ days of the S. Carter line from Reebok, back when Jay-Z was just a legend who retired at the top of his game, before his comeback story, before his post-definitive music (which has thus fallen short), before marriage to an icon, before a baby…well, before the former New Jersey […]

Net Worth: Gerald Green

Season Stats 31 G, 2 GS, 25.2 MPG, 12.9 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 1.1 APG, 0.9 SPG, 0.5 BPG, .548 eFG%, .574 TS%, 15.8 PER, 9.6 PIE Evaluation Gerald Green finally showed the league why he belonged in the first place. After having spent time in Russia and the NBADL (after first missing his mark with […]

Net Worth: Gerald Wallace

Season Stats: 16 G, 16 GS, 35.8 MPG, 15.2 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 3.1 APG, 1.4 SPG, 0.7 BPG, .465 eFG%, .528 TS%, 17.2 PER, 11.3% PIE Evaluation As a Net, Gerald Wallace really didn’t have enough time to establish himself, and considering that he only played for New Jersey for a month, that’s understandable. Still, […]

Net Zero: The Curious Case of Deron Williams

So many changes are forthcoming for the New Jersey Nets. A move to a familiar city. The change in ownership and in the front office. Players have continually changed, and that has stayed the same for the Nets (one of the few things that has stayed the same for New Jersey). Even losing is a […]

The Dwight Cometh…In Three Nets-Friendly Deadline Deals

TrueHoop creator and principle writer Henry Abbott said this about Dwight Howard’s potential jump to the New Jersey Nets from the Orlando Magic via trade: If the Nets have to trade for Howard, they’ll have to gut his next team, which will make winning in Brooklyn tough and hurt Howard’s brand. To keep it as […]

The Martian Manhunter’s Got A New Site, Y’all

MarShon “Martian” (ask his mom about it – seriously…word to mother) Brooks has a new website (!) and it’s probably one of the coolest, cleanest sites that you might find of any of the league players, let alone of a layperson or web professional. Quite simply, it’s all about MarShon doin’ work. Upon the visit, […]
