Nets on the Net: 1/23/10 Edition

Sebastian may think Terrence Williams could get a better basketball experience in the D-League (and I agree), but Rod Thorn disagrees: “The last two games, he’s played winning basketball,” Nets president Rod Thorn said. “He played in a way that, if he continues to progress, he’s going to get minutes – and he’s going to get important minutes. But we really needed to see that.”

JB McCandles over at Bleacher Report laments the descent of now former Net Sean Williams.

Kris Humphries is making a positive impression on his new team, and even beat writer Fred Kerber is impressed: The Nets have to be happy with Humphries, who has been the epitome of an opportunistic player so far. He basically gets points with hustle and will. Basically, he does exactly what the Nets thought he did – only better.

Brook Lopez is playing like an all-star recently, and a case could be made for him to get selected, but will he?: “It’s a goal of mine,” (Lopez) said. “I’m confident enough that if I keep playing the way that I know I can I’ll make it. It’s tough because that was a goal this year.”

With Lopez back on the west coast, the San Jose Mercury News profiles the Nets center, talking about how he’s the “center” of the Nets rebuilding efforts: “He’s proving obviously that he can score the basketball, we all know that,” Nets coach/general manager Kiki Vandeweghe said. “But his passing is improving, his rebounding, defense. He’s a guy that you can play through on a consistent basis.”
