On Thursday, the internet was captivated by of the news of Landon Donovan coming out of retirement to play, once again, for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Donovan, the best American-born men’s soccer player in history, walked away in 2014 following the Galaxy’s victory over the New England Revolution in the MLS Cup. The United States’ […]

Chris McCullough and Isaiah Whitehead team up for back-to-school giveaway

Chris McCullough Per-Game Statistics:24 G, 4 GS, 15.1 MIN, 4.7 PTS, 2.8 REB, 0.4 AST, 1.2 STL, 0.5 BLK, 0.6 TOV, .404 FG%, .382 3PT%, .478 FT%, .463 eFG%, .470 TS%, 12.2 PER It’s hard to grade Chris McCullough after rehabbing a major injury, but he deserves some sort of extra credit for just making it on the court. There’s a long way to go for the Syracuse product, but you can see the traces of a draft steal. A smooth jumper that needs just a little bit of refinement to be consistent, the speed and activity on defense to defend the pick-and-roll and make the extra rotation, the height and vertical to protect the rim and put an opposing player on the wrong end of a poster. The traces of a modern power forward are there, it’s up to Mr. McCullough to do the work. -Ryan Carbain

A couple of New York-born ballers will spend the day tomorrow giving back to the community, reports Ian Begley of ESPN. Chris McCullough, raised in the Bronx, and rookie Isaiah Whitehead, who, of course, is from Brooklyn, will give away backpacks and school supplies at MCU Park from 4-6PM on September 7th. Always good to see […]

The Nets are in possibly the most difficult spot of any NBA team. New general manager Sean Marks has to establish a winning culture with a 21-win team and no draft picks.

Was this the worst season in Nets history?

AP

In their closing act of the 2015-16 season, what remained of the Brooklyn Nets fell apart in the second half against what remained of the Toronto Raptors, blowing a 21-4 lead and losing 103-96 to a team that rested almost all of its rotation players. It was a fitting ending to a dismal season. The […]

While the Brooklyn Nets may have managed a 2-2 series draw against the New York Knicks in 2015-2016 (capped off by their miserable fourth quarter last night), their cross-river rivals have won 10 more games than them this year. The Nets, following the dismissal of Deron Williams over the summer, were expected to take a step […]

The Brooklyn Nets are inevitable. Ever since they let Paul Pierce go, bought out Deron Williams, watched Joe Johnson slowly slide into ineffectual isolations, and dug in the bargain bin hoping to shake gold out of Andrea Bargnani’s pantalonis, the Nets have been in an inevitable decline, from 49 wins to 44 to 38 to […]
