A few days ago, this report would have been easier to write. Then, this ... and this ... happened, one a blowout win on the road, the other a hard-fought loss in a back-to-back. It’s not so simple anymore. We’ve seen what the Nets can do, particularly the younger Nets, the future as it were. Maybe there is some light at the end of a tunnel, and not an oncoming train. This...

Why the Brooklyn Nets should NOT trade Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

The Brooklyn Nets season has not been as ideal as was originally thought by the organization. With that said, by no means is the season lost.

Caris LeVert not only young player giving Nets a glimmer of hope

The trio, all 22 years of age or younger, helped spark the Nets’ bench, which outscored the Pelicans’ reserves...

The game itself was almost a microcosm of the philosophy each side has employed to get back to the contender status.
