In a stunning turn of events, commissioner Adam Silver has mandated that the Boston Celtics return their draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets, a source reports. In case you’ve forgotten, the Nets traded their 2014, 2016, and 2018 picks to the Celtics in a 2013 draft day blockbuster that brought them Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, […]

J.J. Redick On The Flight That Kept Dwight Howard From The Nets

AP_120222088979

For about nine months in 2012, it seemed inevitable that Dwight Howard would team up with Deron Williams on the Brooklyn Nets. With dozens of trade packages, possibly illegal meetings, and various rumors of will-he-won’t-he, the “Dwightmare” finally came to an end (mostly) at the trade deadline in 2011, when Howard flip-flopped one last time, […]

Hassan Whiteside leads stingy Heat defense into Brooklyn

AP

Consistency has become elusive for the Brooklyn Nets (7-17) lately after another lackluster performance against the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Done in by poor shooting (38.8 percent), sloppy play (17 turnovers), and non-existent defense (53.9 percent shooting from the Magic), the Nets inevitably fell 105-82 after being outscored 53-37 in the second half. On […]

There are close to seven billion people on our planet Earth, and I’m willing to bet that less than half of you tuned in for Wednesday night’s Brooklyn Nets-Houston Rockets contest. The Nets, after all, had yet to win a game, and they faced a much more talented foe on the road. It seemed like […]

Rested Nets seek answers in Houston

AP

The Nets (0-7) are still searching for their first win of the season in Houston tonight. While another loss in Milwaukee on Saturday has continued the early season blues, the good news about Brook Lopez’s foot and three days of rest hopefully give a boost to a squad that desperately needs a quick turnaround. In […]

Brook Lopez re-signed with the Nets under one condition — no more trade talk

2. Brook Lopez (3 seasons, 163 games) Despite everything, Brook Lopez is still here. Despite every rumor that the Nets wanted to ship him away, for everyone from Dwight Howard to Lance Stephenson to Reggie Jackson, Brook Lopez still plods away, putting up a boring 17 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks at Barclays Center. Despite multiple foot surgeries and two chances to test the free agent market, Brook Lopez stands to be the longest-tenured player in Nets franchise history, and assuredly he'll own a few more records than that when all is said and done. His flaws are obvious. He's not an explosive athlete or a killer rebounder, and his foot will be a concern until the day he retires. But the Nets stumbled backwards into the franchise player that wanted to be there all along. Despite everything, Brook Lopez is a Brooklyn Net. In that sense, it's a bit poetic that he ends up the #2 on this list.

Brook Lopez, against all odds, likes New York. He likes playing in Brooklyn. He’s comfortable here, and adjusted to an East Coast life after a childhood in California. But when he re-upped with a three-year deal this past summer, it was seen as a surprise by some. It was Lopez’s first real chance to test […]

10 Things We Saw At Barclays Center During Nets-Fenerbahce That You Didn’t Because It Wasn’t Televised

AP

If the Nets fall to a non-NBA team in preseason, and no television cameras or radio announcers broadcast it, did it really happen? Unless you were one of the lucky 6,857 people to sneak into Barclays Center and catch Brooklyn’s inaugural 2015-16 preseason game, you have no idea what anything looked like during the 101-96 […]
