Sweeping the boards --and other surfaces-- with Brook Lopez

We don't know when (or where for that matter) this took place, but the Nets and Key Food released a video of Brook Lopez visiting the home of a Nets fan this week.  Cleaning supplies in hand, Lopez was rewarding "one lucky 'Making Buckets with Brook' winner," an "spring cleaning" promotion sponsored by Key Food and S.C. Johnson. Lopez claims this was his job in high school so he...

Scavenging Nets will look at colossal NBA Draft bust

Anthony Bennett was one of the biggest busts in NBA history. The 23-year-old also arguably is the highest-upside free agent the Nets invited to this week’s mini-camp. The top pick in the 2013 NBA Draft —who failed with Cleveland, Minnesota and most recently Toronto — is expected to be among the group of veterans working...

The Brooklyn Nets draft dilemma

As the NBA Draft nears, the Brooklyn Nets are in a no win situation. After an awful season the Nets have the third highest odds of winning the first overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Billy King 'thought I could have turned it around' with Nets

Billy King could have turned things around with the Brooklyn Nets, if only he was given more time. Well, that’s at least the opinion of King, who said as much in his first interview since being fired. “I know some of the mistakes that were made here and I, I thought I could have turned it around but ownership … that’s their prerogative, [but] you still spent time trying...

An offseason, on two fronts

With the 2015-16 Brooklyn Nets season now a week old, thankfully, the offseason for all non-playoff NBA teams has begun.

Report: Nets looking at two Spurs assistants for coaching job

When the Brooklyn Nets brought in former San Antonio Spurs front office executive Sean Marks to be their new general manager earlier this year, it was a rare solid move for the fledgling franchise. After all, attempting to use the same front office philosophy that has worked wonders for San Antonio makes a ton of sense. It also brought to light the possibility that Brooklyn might...

April Autopsy: Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets didn’t make the playoffs as they had in 2015, but this was nevertheless a fairly typical season for the organization. Brook Lopez was discussed as the subject of possible trades, but stayed put. Mikhail Prokhorov didn’t look very smart. The season ended with everyone feeling pretty depressed, with not a lot of long-term optimism inside the Barclays Center. The...

Thomas Robinson excels after blasting Nets over playing time

Thomas Robinson isn’t a household name because the NBA hasn’t allowed him to become one. Robinson, the No. 5 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, has played for five different teams, been waived, traded a trio of times and for his career averages 13.6 minutes per game. An elite athlete at 6’10” and 237 pounds who has never really been able to put it all together at once, few teams...
