Mirza Revisited, Blatche not worried, and Vote For #SkyKirkland: Shootaround

Some Nets news & notes from around the web:

  • First, a light note: Courtney Kirkland AKA #SkyKirkland is a #4 seed in the official and GREAT SB Nation GIF Tournament hosted by Jon Bois. GO VOTE!

  • Stefan Bondy at the New York Daily News contends that it was never an issue of talent with Andray Blatche — it was, and is, the stupidity.

  • Blatche, incidentally, is not worried at all about the ongoing investigation about an alleged sexual assault that occurred in his hotel suite.

  • Kris Humphries feels he is being misrepresented in the media: “He’s focused on basketball and that’s it.”

  • Mirza: Revisited.
  • Rod Boone at Newsday notices a looser Deron Williams: “He’s attacking the basket effectively, either finishing or finding his teammate. He’s back to having fun, even in tense moments — like in the closing minutes of last week’s big win in Oklahoma City, when Keith Bogans badly missed a shot, and the two shared a chuckle as they walked to the bench.”

  • Barclays Center unveiled a 70-foot mural visible from the arena’s Dean Street entrance, designed by Fort Greene resident José Parlá.
