Lichtenstein: Can Kidd Bring Culture Of Sharing To Nets From The Bench?

As for Kidd’s Nets, the culture change is a work in progress. The talent is oozing from every corner of the roster, but team chemistry often doesn’t sync overnight, especially with so many new components.

Lichtenstein: Deron Needed To Answer Questions At Press Conference

Lichtenstein: Prokhorov Has Gone All In, And The Expectations Have Risen

Prokhorov isn’t putting up all this money just to make the playoffs — he wants a championship, or at least a serious run at it. Kidd, with help from his staff, will have to sort out all these new parts to find the right formula in a hurry.

Lichtenstein: Trading Brooks For Late Pick Would Be A King-Sized Mistake

Various media reports are suggesting that the brain trust in Brooklyn (meaning general manager Billy King) wants to add a first-round pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft and is willing to cede swingman MarShon Brooks to get it. As usual, I have no idea what King is thinking.
