Is It Time To Panic?


It’s only five games. Five losses. But it’s not time to panic. Panic implies that there’s something horribly wrong in the plan. This is the plan. These five games haven’t told us anything we didn’t expect. The Brooklyn Nets aren’t playing well above or below expectation. Brook Lopez is still putting up numbers; Thaddeus Young […]

If you thought Brook Lopez was odd, what with his comic books, superhero obsessions, and Harry Potter t-shirts, just wait until you add his twin brother, Robin Lopez, regularly back into the mix.

VIDEO: Someone made a highlight video of 25 Andrea Bargnani blocks

The Andrea Bargnani signing is a Brooklyn Nets fan Rorschach test. It’s either a no-risk, veteran’s minimum deal for a former top overall pick that once averaged 20 points per game (great!), or a terrible defender and poor shooter who might take playing time away from the team’s younger, higher-potential players and torpedo the team’s […]
