Brooklyn Nets New Year’s Resolutions


Gerald Wallace: Shoot around with Joe.

It’s impossible to complain about Gerald Wallace’s energy. It’s palpable in every game. He can defend half the opposing lineup, no matter what the lineup is. The Brooklyn Nets can use him as a dribble-creator, an on- and off-ball screener, a corner threat, a pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop artist, and more. He’s easily the most versatile player on Brooklyn’s roster.

Now if only he could hit some of those shots. Defenses are starting to sag off him a bit more these days as his percentages plummet — he’s shot just 35.6% in the last nine games and 27.8% from deep. Maybe if Wallace hangs out a little bit more with Joe Johnson, who’s just starting to hit his shooting stride, some of that good fortune will rub off.

(But really, Wallace could shoot 30% for the rest of the season and I’d still be fine with him.)
