The Knicks are going to have a shot at making some noise in the watered down Eastern Conference, and the Brooklyn Nets may very well be a playoff team as well.
With the NBA season kicking off on Wednesday, here’s my preview and ranking predictions for the 2012-2013 NBA season. This is how I see the Eastern Conference breaking down, and my season award winners.
The Brooklyn Nets have reached a verbal agreement to sign 37-year-old guard Jerry Stackhouse on a one-year, $1.3 million deal according to multiple reports.
Orlando should make Howard pay for his stupidity and his nonsense. He deserves it.
It seems the Nets have some company in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes.
The New York Times has reported that the Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement in principle on a three-year deal with Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic.
The framework of deal sending Joe Johnson from the Atlanta Hawks to the Brooklyn Nets has been agreed to in principle.
The NBA playoffs serve as a huge reality check for teams, showing them their true weaknesses and where they have to get better if they want to win a title.
The Bulls are hard to figure. At times, they seemed to play better without Derrick Rose. I wonder how easily he will slide back into that team, considering how he dominates everything the Bulls do on offense.
Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points, and the New York Knicks outlasted the Atlanta Hawks 113-112 on Sunday in a game between two playoff-bound teams still battling for postseason seeding.
Joe Johnson scored 28 points and Willie Green carried the Hawks in the fourth quarter, leading Atlanta to a 100-90 victory over the Mike Woodson and the New York Knicks on Friday night.
Josh Smith had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 93-84 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Friday night.
Not much heat from the Hawks for Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks. That’s likely to change Thursday night when the show travels to Miami for Lin versus LeBron and some real Heat.
The Atlanta Hawks have seen the New Jersey Nets so much this season, it has the feeling of a playoff series, and a sweep at that.
After Deron Williams’ reverse layup cut the lead to 98-96, New Jersey failed to score another field goal.
