Andrea Bargnani is the latest reclamation project for the Nets. After years of underperformance on big contracts, Bargnani comes to the Nets as the backup center with low expectations on a near-minimum contract: the only impetus is to go out and play basketball, hopefully in a way that’ll help the team win games. But the […]
ESPN’s David Thorpe and Henry Abbott preview the upcoming year for the Brooklyn Nets, and the conclusion they come to isn’t pretty.
Jarrett Jack was ejected from the second quarter of Wednesday’s Brooklyn Nets-Boston Celtics preseason game after being assessed a flagrant-2 foul for lowering his shoulder into Jonas Jerebko on a fast-break opportunity. After a fancy half-spin shook Evan Turner’s defense, Jack turned the ball over at the hands of Jared Sullinger, then barreled shoulder-first into […]
Check out Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson as he breaks down NBA player’s off-the-court styles — who he likes, who he doesn’t, and what the style “Rondae” represents. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t wear germs. (Courtesy of YES Network)
You may have heard throughout the summer that Brook Lopez has worked diligently on his three-point shooting this offseason. You also may have heard that Lopez, in the team’s inaugural preseason game, hit his lone three-point attempt on the night. Above is the proof, plus multiple angles. Check out the delighted bench, and a very […]
With celebrities reading mean tweets left and right, it’s only fair that Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had to take a look at some of the things — nice or otherwise — NBA fans had to say about the colorful red-and-black plaid pants he wore to the NBA Draft. Hollis-Jefferson took it all in stride with […]
The Nets marketing campaigns in the Brooklyn era have always leaned on the local feel. Consider it the four stages of living in the borough: meeting your landlord (Hello Brooklyn), finally putting your couch in the right place (We’re In), finally learning the name of the guy who runs your local bodega (We Are). The […]
New Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been the most visible Brooklyn Nets player by a long shot this summer, recently dunking all over a kid at a basketball camp in Monroe Township, New Jersey. It didn’t take long in the above video before Hollis-Jefferson messed with another kid, this time at the Nets’ Hamptons DRIBBL […]
It hasn’t been tough to find Rondae Hollis-Jefferson around this offseason. He’s been making the rounds in Brooklyn (to check out the team’s new digs), as well as Pennsylvania & the Hamptons for basketball camps. Not to mention sharing his creative skills on his Twitter account, both poetry and piano. Most recently, Hollis-Jefferson headed out […]
Former Nets forward Mason Plumlee appeared on ESPN’s Highly Questionable Wednesday, and naturally, hosts Dan LeBetard and Bomani Jones asked him stories about his most story-ific teammate Kevin Garnett. Plumlee did not disappoint. I don’t want to spoil anything because it’s truly something to hear Mason tell these KG stories firsthand. But let’s just say […]
The Andrea Bargnani signing is a Brooklyn Nets fan Rorschach test. It’s either a no-risk, veteran’s minimum deal for a former top overall pick that once averaged 20 points per game (great!), or a terrible defender and poor shooter who might take playing time away from the team’s younger, higher-potential players and torpedo the team’s […]
I have no idea how he made this shot.
