Nets' Brook Lopez says he's lost about 15 pounds

Can Jarrett Jack make Brooklyn Nets fans forget about Shaun Livingston?

Jarrett Jack is, more or less, the forgotten man of the off-season. With so much attention focused on the health of Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, the silence of Kevin Garnett, the departure of Paul Pierce, the emergence of Mason Plumlee and the "youth movement," Jack's acquisition hasn't gotten much attention. But last week's announcement that the man he...

Jogger stumbles upon skeleton wearing Nets hat in NY park

No, really. What the hell is this. Kate Steciw was going out for a jog at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Wednesday when she came across a scene that would be absolutely terrifying in a horror movie and only slightly less eerie outside of one.

Should the Nets Trade Deron Williams?

Deron Williams, the guy the Nets inked to a max contract just two years ago, was a complete disaster in the 2013-2014 season. His per game averages took major dips, and the guy who was once thought to be the best point guard in the NBA was nowhere to be seen.
