The Brooklyn Nets’ D-League affiliate, appropriately named the Long Island Nets, are set to tip-off their inaugural season with Yogi Ferrell, Beau Beech, and Egidijus Mockevicius — but that’s not enough for a full roster! For most franchises, the D-League Draft may not mean much, but to the Nets, who have a pick deficiency themselves, […]
The Nets are 23-31. Here’s how:
The “second half” started well for the Brooklyn Nets (22-31): a 114-105 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday led by strong performances from Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez, the artists formerly known as the “Big 3.” Williams’s 12-point, 15-assist showing, leading the team to a season-high 29 assists, was particularly encouraging. […]
After a hard-fought 110-105 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night, The Nets (11-15) look to build on the offensive chemistry that provided 52.6 percent shooting on a season-high 29 assists, including at least 25 points in all four quarters. It was a complete team effort, albeit against one of the Eastern Conference’s bottom-dwellers; […]
After shining for Team USA, Kenneth Faried looks to break out this season.
It was around this time last year that Jason Kidd set the NBA ablaze, by accepting a head-coaching job with the Nets just a few days after retiring.

After writing my post Sunday afternoon, I was able to clear my head in the form of a long drive in terrible weather. Saturday’s game stuck with me, but I don’t really know why. It was another blowout loss to a better team, another eye-rolling performance from virtually everyone on the floor. Maybe it’s just […]
With the Nets trailing by 24, out came the boo birds at home for the Nets. These weren’t just one-time boos, they were multiple-time boos. It wasn’t one loud, obnoxious fan, or one small section. These were the type of boos you’d hear at Philadelphia sporting event or even a New York Mets game. These […]
