Taking A Step Back

I have been with NetsAreScorching, posting on a consistent basis, since April 7th, 2009.  Through that, you have seen the site go from a terrible wordpress.com blog (seriously, only go there if you want to have a few chuckles at my expense), to having its own domain, to being a part of the TrueHoop Network.

Rod Thorn Vs. Brett Yormark

This weekend provided an interesting back and forth between former Nets’ president Rod Thorn and current Nets’ CEO Brett Yormark.  It all started when Peter Vecsey talked to the Thorn over the weekend, and Thorn (now with no reason to hold back) let everyone know how he really felt about Yormark: From what I had […]

Quick Recap: New Jersey Nets 108, Maccabi Haifa 70

Unless you were one of 5,174 in attendance, you were unable to catch the Nets’ first preseason game of the season, since it wasn’t televised anywhere.  That doesn’t mean that you were left in the dark during the game.  Both NetsDaily and Al Iannazzone where live tweeting the event, and Stefan Bondy gave us some live […]

Where The Nets Stand

By all accounts (and Mark linked to it this morning), the four team trade that has been rumored since Friday is dead in its current form.  Don’t believe me?  Here is Coach Avery Johnson talking about it: “I think we’re at a point where nothing’s alive,” Johnson said. “So if the opposite of that is […]

Some Themes From Media Day

Some Themes From Media Day

Nets’ Media Day was interesting this year because right after it concluded is when the latest Carmelo Anthony rumors surfaced (The ones involving the potential four team trade).  A lot of the quotes that came from Media Day were Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, and trade rumor related and rightfully so.  However, that wasn’t the only […]
