Brooklyn Nets New Year’s Resolutions


Marshon Brooks: Get a new hashtag.

Maybe #productiveMarshon or #defensebetterthanasieveMarshon or just #rotationMarshon. The second year swing-man entered the season with talks of a Sixth Man of the Year Award, only to see his minutes cut in third from almost thirty down to 12 a game under Avery Johnson. In order to curry favor with P.J (but which P.J!? OH SNAP), MarSwag will need to prove that he can play defense and score points that help his team win, not just stuff stat sheets. If Brooks can show the focus and mental toughness to contribute to a winning team, there is no reason he shouldn’t win a spot in the rotation.

At the very least, Marshon should be able to go through 2013 without being called out by his coach in front of a sick Make-A-Wish teenager. Not sure how you would hashtag that.
