Tonight, the Brooklyn Nets will host a team with Vince Carter on it for what may be the last time. It’s a sad time to be an NBA fan for anyone over the age of 25. Our heroes — the ones that are left, that is — are getting old, and it’s hard to know […]

Sustainably Sourced: Adding the Ingredients for an Efficient Nets Offense Constructing an NBA roster requires balance. The general manager needs to understand on-court schemes, but also must account for attitude and effort. Putting big-name talent that fails to gel usually results in disappointment (see Brooklyn Nets, 2013-2014). Assembling a high character team that lacks raw […]

Diaries from an Unimportant NBA Preseason Game, Vol. 1 It’s hard to believe that Brooklyn Nets basketball is back already.

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.

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 […]
