The Nets may have made great strides in 2012-13, but a bad choice and some bad luck could easily make them laughingstocks once again.
It appears that Phil Jackson coming to Brooklyn is a moot point, as multiple reports indicated on Wednesday that Jackson has in fact informed the Nets that he will not be the club’s next head coach.
“It’s the way it is,” Carlesimo told Mike Francesa. “I’m disappointed. I’m not a little disappointed, I’m tremendously disappointed, just because I feel strongly about what a great situation this was.”
For the Nets, it’s back to the drawing board. It’s not the first time during this rollercoaster campaign that they’ve had to take a harder look at their inner workings in a search for consistent basketball.
The Nets will continue to be looking up at teams like the Spurs from echelons below. For now, I will look to be comforted by the Devils, a warm blanket of consistency in New York’s volatile sports landscape.
It’s established that LeBron James is the greatest current basketball player on the planet. But that doesn’t make the Heat star an expert on the state of the Nets.
With tough games upcoming versus Miami and Chicago later this week, the Nets were staring at another cliff if they gagged against Orlando on Monday night.
Carmelo Anthony is ready to gain an edge in the Atlantic Division race on Martin Luther King Day as the Knicks battle the Nets at MSG.
When MarShon Brooks has his game going, he is a threat to score from almost any spot on the floor.
It’s been a rarity this season, especially this cruel month in which the Nets have registered but four wins in 14 games, but the YES cameras caught various Nets smiling throughout the telecast of this laugher.
Mikhail Prokhorov saw the draining team spirit, the missing will to fight, and decided change was needed. The Brooklyn Nets owner had to like the results in the first game under P.J. Carlesimo.
The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.
Although Deron Williams vehemently denies it, a report indicates that the star point guard “totally quit on Avery Johnson.”
In the end, the Nets are going to have to live with Stan Van Gundy, Jeff Van Gundy or Nate McMillan as the head coach. All of those candidates give the Nets more than nice-guy Avery. None of them would give them as much as Jackson.
The Nets have Jackson, who was passed over for the Lakers job earlier this season, high on their list of potential replacements for fired coach Avery Johnson, according to multiple reports.
