Deron Williams’ Fancy New Shoes

nike-hyperdunk-2011-low-pe-deron-williams-home-01

“These weren’t just any shoes…these were NIKES.” –Richard Thomas, “Chappelle’s Show” It hasn’t been often within the past three or four years that a New Jersey Nets player has gotten much love from anyone throughout the league. Save for Devin Harris and Vince Carter’s team-up in 2008-2009 (in Harris’ lone All-Star campaign), the Nets are […]

Deron Williams Debuts New 2012 Olympics Uniform

There’s not a lot to be excited about for Nets fans and admirers, or even the Nets themselves. Outside of taking down the cross-state rival Knicks on Monday, they’ve been terrible this season, and beat up to boot. Deron Williams is grudgingly stoic, trying to carry the franchise even while he has made mention that […]

New Jack City Throwbacks!

Other than getting waffle-stomped{{1}}[[1]]Editor’s note: please don’t look this up on Urban Dictionary[[1]] by the Chicago Bulls on January 6 (predictably and unfortunately), the New Jersey Nets decided to get nostalgic and adopt the look of their ABA predecessors, the New York Nets. Marked by true red, white, and true blue, the Nets wore their […]

Rapid Reaction: Nets 90, Heat 101

Miami Heat 101 Final Recap | Box Score 90 New Jersey Nets DeShawn Stevenson, SG 25 MIN | 2-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 6 PTS | -7 Did an admirable job defending LeBron James and contributed some offense, but was basically a whipping boy of the Heat to […]

Nets at Raptors: An SD Reaction

When the New Jersey Nets played the Toronto Raptors on Saturday (to a win of 97-85), I didn’t expect much, honestly. The teams are about the same in talent (the Raptors are more talented, overall), the chemistry of the clubs is still iffy, and it’s hard to gauge if two teams that are struggling are […]

A Few Good Reasons To Be Thankful About The Nets

These days in late November, it’s a little hard for some of the NBA’s finest fans to cope with the fact that we aren’t seeing those logoed uniforms zipping up and down the hardwood on TV and in the Prudential Center. Does it suck that the league hasn’t been cooperating to put out a brand-spanking-new […]

#2: Julius Erving

To say that Julius Erving was before my time is a pretty significant understatement. Julius was born in early 1950. He became a professional basketball player in 1971. I was born in late 1983. Julius retired in 1987. I didn’t even think of basketball until 1994. The closest I had gotten to Dr. J was […]

#7: Kenyon Martin

#7: Kenyon Martin

I hope the new fans of the NBA don’t see Kenyon Martin as some old man. I mean, he’s aged in NBA years, but an old man is not what a longtime observer of K-Mart would call him, I doubt that. My memories of Kenyon are tied to the University of Cincinnati and the New […]

#13: Derrick Coleman

The Derrick I’m most familiar with was the guy in Philadelphia. This DC wore the black uniform with wide-set sleeves. The jersey looks like a muscle tank. That Derrick was older, bigger, calmer, and more mature (I’m guessing). He was a good player, but it was fairly visible that he wasn’t what he could’ve been, […]
