The forgotten upside of the Brooklyn Nets

After a tough 105-100 loss to the Detroit Pistons, the Brooklyn Nets sit at 12-37 with little hope for the rest of the season. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, but it is hidden in the training room. Rookies Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Chris McCullough have both been hit by the injury bug, but that does not mean they should be overlooked. Hollis-Jefferson played in...

Brooklyn And The Usefulness Of Pursuing Restricted Free Agents

There's no need to dance around the obvious - the Brooklyn Nets are a disaster and there's no clear path for them back to respectability anytime soon. They fired their head coach and their GM in the last few weeks, but they might as well be re-arranging deck chairs for all the good that it's going to do. The Nets are one of the worst teams in the league, they have no young talent...

Need a point guard? Joe Johnson is here

The Nets went into this season with one of the NBA's weakest point-guard rotations. Once Jarrett Jack suffered an ACL injury which would keep him out for the whole year, the floor generals got even worse. Now, the Nets have merely two point guards: Donald Sloan and Shane Larkin. That's it.So, Brooklyn has to get creative. With two players who were third-stringers at times last season...

Possible GM candidates for the Brooklyn Nets

Almost six years into Mikhail Prokhorov’s reign as owner of the Brooklyn Nets, the team has cleaned house. Failing to deliver on his promise of winning a title within the first five years of his ownership, Prokhorov fired head coach Lionel Hollins and reassigned GM Billy King. King made all the moves the brazen Russian owner asked of him — leveraging the organization’s future...

In short, the Nets are a mess. So this being the internet and all, we took a stab at a 5-step plan to get this franchise back on track.

How to Get the Brooklyn Nets Draft Picks

As I explored earlier this season, the Brooklyn Nets would be in much better shape these days if the franchise had simply elected to hold on to their draft picks instead of constantly dealing them away for aging stars. Although the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers both have worse records than the Nets at this point, in many ways it’s the Nets who have the bleakest organizational...

Brooklyn Nets are a model of inefficiency

The Nets were always going to be an arduous watch this season. With its mishmash of crafty, vertically-challenged scorers, a nineties-era point guard, and a slew of flawed prospects trying to merely prove they belong in the NBA, Brooklyn was never going to be capable of churning out an entertaining brand of basketball. Not even the franchise’s top-notch broadcast duo of Ian Eagle...
