Andrea Bargnani is the latest reclamation project for the Nets. After years of underperformance on big contracts, Bargnani comes to the Nets as the backup center with low expectations on a near-minimum contract: the only impetus is to go out and play basketball, hopefully in a way that’ll help the team win games. But the […]
ESPN’s David Thorpe and Henry Abbott preview the upcoming year for the Brooklyn Nets, and the conclusion they come to isn’t pretty.
https://youtu.be/UPlghpmPzAI?t=34s Jarrett Jack was ejected from the second quarter of Wednesday’s Brooklyn Nets-Boston Celtics preseason game after being assessed a flagrant-2 foul for lowering his shoulder into Jonas Jerebko on a fast-break opportunity. After a fancy half-spin shook Evan Turner’s defense, Jack turned the ball over at the hands of Jared Sullinger, then barreled shoulder-first […]
Check out Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson as he breaks down NBA player’s off-the-court styles — who he likes, who he doesn’t, and what the style “Rondae” represents. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t wear germs. (Courtesy of YES Network)
You may have heard throughout the summer that Brook Lopez has worked diligently on his three-point shooting this offseason. You also may have heard that Lopez, in the team’s inaugural preseason game, hit his lone three-point attempt on the night. Above is the proof, plus multiple angles. Check out the delighted bench, and a very […]
With celebrities reading mean tweets left and right, it’s only fair that Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had to take a look at some of the things — nice or otherwise — NBA fans had to say about the colorful red-and-black plaid pants he wore to the NBA Draft. Hollis-Jefferson took it all in stride with […]
The Nets marketing campaigns in the Brooklyn era have always leaned on the local feel. Consider it the four stages of living in the borough: meeting your landlord (Hello Brooklyn), finally putting your couch in the right place (We’re In), finally learning the name of the guy who runs your local bodega (We Are). The […]
New Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been the most visible Brooklyn Nets player by a long shot this summer, recently dunking all over a kid at a basketball camp in Monroe Township, New Jersey. It didn’t take long in the above video before Hollis-Jefferson messed with another kid, this time at the Nets’ Hamptons DRIBBL […]
It hasn’t been tough to find Rondae Hollis-Jefferson around this offseason. He’s been making the rounds in Brooklyn (to check out the team’s new digs), as well as Pennsylvania & the Hamptons for basketball camps. Not to mention sharing his creative skills on his Twitter account, both poetry and piano. Most recently, Hollis-Jefferson headed out […]
Former Nets forward Mason Plumlee appeared on ESPN’s Highly Questionable Wednesday, and naturally, hosts Dan LeBetard and Bomani Jones asked him stories about his most story-ific teammate Kevin Garnett. Plumlee did not disappoint. I don’t want to spoil anything because it’s truly something to hear Mason tell these KG stories firsthand. But let’s just say […]
The Andrea Bargnani signing is a Brooklyn Nets fan Rorschach test. It’s either a no-risk, veteran’s minimum deal for a former top overall pick that once averaged 20 points per game (great!), or a terrible defender and poor shooter who might take playing time away from the team’s younger, higher-potential players and torpedo the team’s […]
I have no idea how he made this shot.
