The Nets need to start changing their D-League philosophies

The Nets' D-League team will play its first year at Barclays Center. Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports Debby Wong-USA TODAY SportsWhen the Nets announced the addition of their own, personal D-League affiliate earlier this season, that was a step in the right direction. A franchise that usually has things backwards was finally trending toward the same place the league was. It was smart...

Young is one of the most athletic Nets. Anthony Gruppuso Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY SportsThe Nets don't exactly get off to the quickest of starts. That's true during games or seasons for a team that often gets rocked out of the gate and started this year 0-7.

Billy King has been the Nets' general manager since 2010.

Nets beat Celts with help from refs / Stunning details + Green Stats analysis

Boston's offense was able to generate a respectable Offensive Rating in Sunday's game in Brooklyn, despite the amazing machinations of a trio of refs patently determined to control the outcome of the game. The Celtics' defense, however, could not withstand the 8v5 attack, and ended up with an abysmally poor Defensive Rating for the game — equivalent to the worst defense in the...

Billy King: We Took Our Shot, It Didn't Work

The Brooklyn Nets have taken a step back this season on purpose as they've cleared cap space for 2016. But their draft pick will go to the Boston Celtics as part of the trade for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. “We took our shot and it didn’t work,” Billy King said. “And now to see some of these guys develop and to get it back and for us to have the cap space [next summer...

Brooklyn Nets rebuild plan: Buy a bunch of 2nd-round draft picks?

I understand Nets coach Lionel Hollins was just trying to put on nice face on things, and I don't blame him.  What else can you do when you're asked about the draft future of a team that won't get to use its own first-round pick until 2019?  Still, what he said the other night was laugh-out-loud funny: After being asked about BKN's lack of 1st-rounders, Lionel Hollins points out...

Green Envy: What Nets fans said 11/20

Coming into the game, we all knew the Brooklyn Nets were horrible. As a fan I feared the C's would take their opponent lightly and as a result, it would be a contest.

How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

Now that a little dose of reality has been administered, I think we can rule out a “taking a bad team lightly” game from the Celtics. The guys have learned that they’re pretty damn good when they’re fully engaged, and they can be pretty bad when they get aloof and slack off. It’s a nice reminder at this point of the season that the Celtics success if about effort and execution…...

What a Difference a Day Makes; Hornets Split New York/Brooklyn Back-to-Back

After Tuesday’s game in Madison Square Garden, there was a lot of scrutiny over Kemba Walker.  I was part of that scrutiny.  I’ll admit it up front that I can’t stand it when Kemba plays “hero ball”.  When his shot is falling, he gets tunnel vision and sometimes fails to get his teammates involved.  No one can deny that this happens.  Many do, but their reason is clouded...

It’s a Horrible Time to be a Brooklyn Nets Fan & It’s Not Getting Any Better

Everybody likes to root for a winner.  It’s easy to be a fan when your team is competing for championships and division titles. A winning team can be the talk of the town, something that brings together all parts of a city for a common cause. And it’s equally hard to be a fan when your team sucks. There’s only so much losing and misery a fanbase can take before the passion...

No one showed up to watch Hawks-Nets (photos)

It’s no secret that the Brooklyn Nets are a bad team. From ownership, to management to a barren roster, they’re one of the worst teams in the NBA right now. They brought a 1-9 record into Tuesday’s game against the Hawks at the Barclays Center, and maybe that’s why literally no one showed up to watch them play. The photos really tell the story of a game that featured tons...

Nets Making 'Exploratory Calls' On Possible Trades

The Brooklyn Nets have interest in making a trade though Billy King doesn't expect it to be drastic. The Nets are projected of having $40 million in cap space and don't want to make a short-sighted move. “We can trade now and eat all that space up, get to 30-something wins and make the playoffs in the eighth spot,” King said at the team’s New Jersey practice facility Monday...

Report: Brook Lopez escapes serious foot injury, not expected to miss time

At 0-7 on the year, not in possession of their 2016 first-round draft pick, and with a roster full of bloated contracts, deficient veterans, and raw, low-upside youngsters, good news is hard to come by these days for the Nets. So the Brooklyn faithful will take it wherever they can get it. After exiting the...Read More

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...

Tony Parker misses Spurs shootaround for good reason

Tony Parker was a no-show for the San Antonio Spurs’ shootaround ahead of Friday’s tilt with the Brooklyn Nets at AT&T Center. While these kind of things happen to professional athletes from time to time — and usually results in criticism of the player for not taking their job seriously — the veteran point guard provided photographic evidence that he actually had a...

Brooklyn Nets: Players to Watch in 2015-2016

The Brooklyn Nets roster went through a few changes during the offseason.  They jettisoned their would-be franchise player and added a few pieces to their bench that may or may not work out for them.  After finishing last season as the 8th seed in the playoffs, the Nets are looking to improve a bit in the standings. They intend to accomplish this by using better chemistry and...

Mikhail Prokhorov takes working out to the next level at Nets training camp (video)

The Nets finished the 2014-15 season with an underwhelming 38-44 record, and Prokhorov wants to make sure they take the necessary steps...
