Just What Could The Nets Get For Brook Lopez? Part I

Just What Could The Nets Get For Brook Lopez? Sure, he just got his soul stolen by Larry Nance Jr, but Brook Lopez seems like a good guy. His voice is low, his hair is big, and he’s a massive nerd, literally and figuratively. He looks like a jocular kinda dude on the court; even […]

Nets-Sixers — what else is there to say?

Bojan Bogdanovic Per-Game Statistics: 79 G, 39 GS, 26.8 MIN, 11.2 PTS, 3.2 REB, 1.3 AST, 0.4 STL, 0.1 BLK, 1.5 TOV, .433 FG%, .382 3PT%, .833 FT%, .519 eFG%, .550 TS%, 10.7 PER After a strong second half to close the 2014-15 season, many fans felt optimistic that Bogdanovic would take the next step forward in his NBA career. Whatever the reason was (sophomore slump, Lionel Hollins’s system, waning confidence), the second year Bosnian was very disappointing during the first half of the season. Certainly his performance improved post All-Star break, but there were still inconsistencies in his offensive game and limitations on the defensive side of the court that make you wonder if can truly be a cornerstone piece of a competitive team. For every 20-point output (or the 44-point explosion against Philadelphia) there seems to be a 2-12 dud just waiting to happen. At 26 years old, maybe this is just who he is as a player -- an inconsistent, streaky shooter. -Jonathan Griggs

Nets escape with preseason victory over 76ers

If Lionel Hollins saw today as a warmup for the regular season, well… at least they won the game. The Nets needed a late turnover from the 76ers and some free throw line heroics from Brook Lopez, who joined the rest of the team’s starters on the floor in crunch time, to take down the […]
