Here’s the latest Nets news and notes from around the ‘nets:

  • A former teammate of Brook & Robin Lopez at Stanford shares some hilarious stories about the duo. Everyone got a superhero nickname, and the two once skipped out on practice to go to Disneyland.

  • Wonderful story about Thaddeus Young, finding stability in Brooklyn after a heartbreaking two years off the court.

  • ESPN’s Nets Player Profiles (Insider) don’t paint a pretty picture for the Nets. One bright spot: their analytics-based SCHOENE projection pegs minimum-salary D-League lifer Willie Reed as a solid big man a la Ed Davis or Jordan Hill.

  • Lionel Hollins shares his favorite Mikhail Prokhorov story. “He likes to have fun.”

  • Ryan Boatright is a longshot to make the Nets. But a longshot is still a shot.

  • SB Nation’s take on the Nets: the Nets are boring. Well, all right!
  • 30 years and one day ago, former Nets great Drazen Petrovic scored 112 points in a single game. You’ll have to know Croatian to read the rest.
