The Best of Devin Kharpertian While we’re all dealing with the fact that Devin Kharpertian is officially a free agent — somebody give this man the max! — it’s important to give this human the proper send-off that he deserves.

In a stunning turn of events, commissioner Adam Silver has mandated that the Boston Celtics return their draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets, a source reports. In case you’ve forgotten, the Nets traded their 2014, 2016, and 2018 picks to the Celtics in a 2013 draft day blockbuster that brought them Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, […]

The Brooklyn Nets are inevitable. Ever since they let Paul Pierce go, bought out Deron Williams, watched Joe Johnson slowly slide into ineffectual isolations, and dug in the bargain bin hoping to shake gold out of Andrea Bargnani’s pantalonis, the Nets have been in an inevitable decline, from 49 wins to 44 to 38 to […]

The Nets are finally as good as Stephen Curry. Curry got off to one of the hottest starts in NBA history this year and has kept it running, having far and away the most productive year of any player.

You might say that reigning MVP Stephen Curry had an off night in the 114-98 Warriors win over the Nets Sunday night. He finished with a game-high 28 points and two assists, both below his season averages. But Curry did do one thing at about his standard pace: he hit five three-pointers in nine attempts. […]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson OUT vs. Warriors

The Nets were already big underdogs going into Sunday’s game, but it just got a bit harder. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will sit out against the Golden State Warriors after spraining his right ankle in team practice Saturday afternoon. Hollis-Jefferson had made 14 consecutive starts before spraining the ankle, which also gave him problems in preseason. As […]

NEW YORK, NY. — If good things come in threes, it shouldn’t surprise you that the Nets are 5-14. The cross-borough New York Knicks took down the Brooklyn Nets Friday night 108-91, laying to rest any talk of a regional rivalry after only 12 minutes. The Knicks made seven of nine three-pointers to close the […]

But while fans are abuzz, the players appear to be over it. “I don’t know if it’s a rivalry amongst the players,” Jarrett Jack […]
