Nets Coaches: Would You Do It Over?

We’re looking back at the series of major decisions that led to the current state of the Nets, and asking you: if you could go back, would you do it again?

These will come in (mostly) reverse chronological order. Today, we cover the coaching carousel, looking at who’s had a shot with the Nets.

Lionel Hollins admits the Nets aren’t what he thought they were

The Brooklyn Nets are no stranger to December changeups. Avery Johnson was fired in their first December in the borough, following a 14-14 start to the 2012-13 season. Jason Kidd assigned Lawrence Frank to “daily reports” nearly one year later on December 4th, 2013, roughly around the time Nets management reportedly considered firing him. ‘Tis […]

Nets GM Billy King Doesn’t Rule Out “Tweaks”

RUTHERFORD, N.J. — When asked if he thought the team could still work with their current core of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, and Joe Johnson, Nets general manager Billy King was non-committal. “We’ll see,” he said simply, closing a 15-minute conversation with the media Monday afternoon. Since the Nets jumped the river and landed in […]

Nets look to get back on track vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Brooklyn Nets (4-7) enter Friday night’s game in Oklahoma City against the Thunder on a demoralizing five-game losing streak, which by now everyone knows has followed Joe Johnson’s notorious “selfish” comments.

The Best Mr. Irrelevants In NBA History: Can the Nets strike gold?

The Best Mr. Irrelevants In NBA History: Can the Nets strike gold?

Since 1976, the last pick in the NFL draft has been referred to — with tongue firmly planted in cheek — as  “Mr. Irrelevant.” The dubious honor even comes with some hardware, “The Lowsman Trophy,” a play on the Heisman with the player fumbling a football. The NBA’s version of Mr. Irrelevant has changed quite […]

Lionel Hollins introduced to less fanfare

It was much more a press conference than it was a celebration. The remnants of the past season were still there: “HELLO COACH!” stuck around as the mantra, and Barclays Center’s oculus sported an enormous picture of Lionel Hollins, the new Brooklyn Nets head coach. But the welcoming was media-only and occurred in the interview […]

Mirza Teletovic is being used by other European NBA players as an example of second-year success.

Winner Take All: A History of Nets Elimination Games

Jason Kidd

Ed. Note: this originally ran on May 4, 2013, and has been updated. This won’t come as a surprise, and if it does you don’t even have a rudimentary understanding of the NBA, but the Nets don’t have as illustrious a history as the Los Angeles Lakers. Shocker. The Lakers are an NBA team from the league’s […]
