In Brooklyn, former Nets look back

Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, Kris Humphries, Danny Ainge

After their morning shootaround at Barclays Center, Gerald Wallace and MarShon Brooks were involved in a shooting contest, the final shot from about 35 feet out. As they were playing, Kris Humphries and Keith Bogans iced down various parts of their body, as is commonplace for veterans after practices. The weird part: unlike last season, […]
