Before their 108-100 overtime loss to the Phoenix Suns Friday night, the Nets made a different kind of statement. In pre-game warmups, most of the team donned one of two shirts produced by the “End It Movement,” dedicated to raising awareness about and eliminating present-day slavery. Deron Williams also wore a Red X on his […]

Brooklyn Nets Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack, and Alan Anderson, along with Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and guard Kyrie Irving, took Monday night’s game to make a political statement, wearing “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirts during warm-ups before taking on the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. James said he got the shirt from Jack. […]
By now, you know Andrei Kirilenko and the Nets are probably headed for a split. You know that you can’t remember the last time Kirilenko played (it was November 13th), the last time he made a shot (May 14th, during last year’s playoffs), or maybe even the last time he recorded a single box score […]
The Brooklyn Nets (8-10) welcome in the Cleveland Cavaliers (11-7) tonight at Barclays Center at a rough and trying time.
