At first, slotting Rondae Hollis-Jefferson in at power forward seemed iffy, but Kenny Atkinson has found a way for both him and Trevor Booker to succeed.
Time: 10:30 PM EST Location: Oracle Arena Watch: YES Network Listen: WFAN 660 AM/ 101.9 FM One team sits at 9-48, while the other stands with the best record in the NBA at 48-9. Still, the game must be played. The Nets are coming off a horrid 129-109 loss to the Denver Nuggets last night. […]
Patience is Paramount: Revisiting Billy King’s first year with the Nets Sean Marks recently celebrated his one-year (and a day) anniversary of becoming the Brooklyn Nets’ general manager. In his first year, to say the least, the Nets have struggled mightily. Marks made bold offseason moves, some of which have panned out, and some that […]
Opponent: Golden State Warriors Time: 7:30PM EST Location: Barclays Center Watch:YES Network Listen: WFAN 101.9 FM, 660AM So this is, objectively, The Brooklyn Game’s preview for the game between the Nets and Golden State Warriors tonight — but what is it, really? What are we? What separates us and the machines? Does this basketball game matter at all? […]
Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is shining in Brooklyn.
The talk should have been about how great that final play was, how all the pinwheeling around Brook Lopez was just a cunning misdirection for Lopez to pull off a sneaky push-off and create perhaps the league’s easiest shot: an open layup at the height of the jump. Instead, the focus will lie squarely on […]
The Brooklyn Nets are 1-8 and just dropped a heartbreaker by two points to the Sacramento Kings. The Golden State Warriors are 10-0 and eight of their ten wins have come by double-digits. The two teams play tonight at 10:30 P.M. EST. It’s safe to say the Nets aren’t exactly heavy favorites. Despite that, you […]
NBA players often speak glowingly of their “veterans,” the older players that helped them thrive in the league when they were rookies. Kevin Garnett shouts out Sam Mitchell — sorry, that’s “THE GREAT SAM MITCHELL” — for teaching him the NBA ropes. Draymond Green credits Jarrett Jack as “my vet.” It makes an NBA career […]
The Brooklyn Nets have added one more player to their training camp roster: Dahntay Jones. Jones, 34, and the Nets agreed to a non-guaranteed deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Jones played 33 games last season for the Los Angeles Clippers. He averaged 0.6 points in 3.7 minutes per game, but got into […]
Before free agency even began, there were rumors that Jason Kidd would try to snare Brook Lopez from the Brooklyn Nets. But Lopez, sitting in Barclays Center shortly after signing a three-year maximum deal, said it was little more than a brief conversation between a former coach & player, and at the end of the […]
Brook Lopez is in the midst of the biggest multi-tier decision of his career. He has to decide whether or not to opt in or out of the final year of his contract. Then he’ll decide if he’d like to stay in Brooklyn with the Nets, or move elsewhere. On top of that, he needs […]
Shaun Livingston became a fan favorite in his lone season with the Brooklyn Nets, as a key component of a re-energized starting lineup that finished the season 34-17 and made it to the second round of the playoffs. Livingston signed a three-year contract with the Golden State Warriors last offseason, and made his first return […]
