Mikhail Prokhorov To Sell Nets & God Isn’t Happy

“Sadie Johnson — come on down!” The fat lady screamed in joy as she stumbled her way to the stage. When she got there she gave host Bob Barker a big hug as the crowd went wild. The Devil was in his den watching a vintage rerun of “The Price Is Right” and decided to […]

Kevin Garnett Gives David West an Earful

Part of what makes Nets forward Kevin Garnett great is his ability to get under an opponents skin. Last night against the Indiana Pacers he got into David West’s ear — by blowing into it — just like former Pacer Lance Stephenson did to LeBron James in last year’s Eastern Conference finals. “I didn’t like that. […]

Brook Lopez: “I’d Love To Be A Wookiee”

Nets center Brook Lopez has had lots of time to think. He’s missed over 156 games over the past three-plus seasons and that could make a guy’s mind wander. Even a bright guy who went to Stanford. “Seriously, though … I’d like to be a wookiee,” Lopez said after a recent Nets practice. He’s a […]

Nets Dumping Deron Williams, Joe Johnson & Brook Lopez?

Here it is mid-December and it looks like the 8-11 Brooklyn Nets are about to pull the chute and their Big Three could be fini.  According to ESPN they’re open to trading former All-Stars Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez. Very expensive guys who didn’t get the Nets very far last season (nearly $190 […]

Pierce & Garnett Awaken in Brooklyn

And I like what I hear. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry met the press for the first time as Brooklyn Nets and looking at those three has New Yorkers thinking NBA champion – even if has to come from the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge. “I think we’re going to be right […]

A Kidd Gets A Shot To Coach Nets

A Kidd Gets A Shot To Coach Nets

Jason Kidd is the Nets new head coach. Kind of surprising. Great point guard, 19 year vet, future Hall of Famer. But an NBA coach just 10 days after retiring as a player? Albert Einstein didn’t coach or have a  decent 25-footer, so being brilliant or a great athlete isn’t necessarily a requirement. But c’mon, no […]

Nets Quickly Remove PJ’s

Well that didn’t take long. Like a little kid ripping off his pj’s after making a no-no in them, the Brooklyn Nets did the same getting rid of their PJ –  Carlesimo. Less than 24 hours after the Nets lame effort in their Game 7 home loss to the Bulls, Carlesimo got canned. “I think short of winning […]

Does Deron Williams Have Mets Syndrome?

You won’t find Mets Syndrome in any medical dictionary – or any dictionary for that matter because I made it up. But Mets fans know what I’m talking about. Jason Bay had a severe case.  His stats with the Red Sox in 2009:  .293 batting average, 36 home runs and 119 rbi’s. His work the following year […]

Reggie Evans Asks For Trouble

“You ain’t nothin’”…”Your team ain’t nothin’!” – Reggie Evans, Brooklyn Nets. Ah, a quote worthy of the great Forrest Gump. I love when a guy says that about another guy who happens to be pretty damn good. I love it even more when the trash talker averages 3.3 ppg on a team that’s won zilch […]

Is P.J. Carlesimo The Answer?

It depends what the question is. If it’s, “Should P.J. Carlesimo be the Nets permanent coach (relatively speaking)?”  the answer should be no. If the question is, “Should P.J. Carlesimo be the Nets coach for the rest of the season until someone better comes along?” the answer should be yes. The Nets are 6-1 since Carlesimo replaced Avery Johnson as […]
