The guys over at Rufus on Fire, SB Nation’s Charlotte Bobcats blog, were kind enough to have me on to answer a few Nets questions.
If you’re curious about what another team asks about the Nets (and my answers), here’s a snippet:
The last few months of 2013 were rather unforgiving for the Nets. How has 2014 been treating them?
The exact opposite. The Nets are a whole new team, and all it took was them losing their best player to play as their best. No, really. Once Brook Lopez went down for the season, Kevin Garnett was switched (against his will) to center, setting off a chain reaction that resulted in more ball movement and better rim protection, ending in the team’s best January in their franchise history. Now, instead of sinking to the bottom of the Atlantic, the Nets are surging into the “best team that’s not a really good team in the East” battle. Basketball is weird.
