Caris LeVert

Who is Caris LeVert?

Roundtable: Uncovering the Brooklyn Nets’ best lineups

Isaiah Whitehead

Our former leader Devin Kharpertian may be on to new adventures and The Brooklyn Game is definitely changing, but let’s be clear: we still love our roundtables. In fact, our affinity for the group conversation is about as strong as Jarrett Jack’s adoration for the mid-range jumper. That is to say, we’re going to rely on our bread-and-butter until […]

What is the “market value” of these Nets on the floor?

AP

One of the quirks about following the Nets, from either a casual distance or with intense focus, is that you haven’t had to think much about market value. If the player was good, they paid for him. If he wasn’t good, well, they might have paid for him anyway. The money side was simple, even […]

The Nets didn’t have a good offseason, but they had a necessary one

AP
