The Knicks and Nets are taking a beating — not just on the court and from fans, but also from the experts at the “worldwide leader.”
Because Billy King couldn’t unload any of his Max Three, Brooklyn’s future will remain bleak for the next few years. By then there’d better be a new caretaker in charge.
I’ve had enough of D-Will’s excuses. Trading Brook Lopez could also be addition by subtraction. They both have to go — for whatever Nets GM Billy King can get at auction.
Just when you thought this season couldn’t get any stranger. Unfortunately, there is little Billy King can do to resurrect this team.
Something has always bugged me about Kevin Garnett’s tenure here. He is getting paid $12 million this season. To play, not to dispense advice from the sidelines.
I ask any of you who have qualms about this potential deal: What exactly do you think you’ll get for a broken-down Lopez?
It’s obvious that the 16-19 Nets are an unmitigated disaster — just one season after the trade that was supposed to change everything and launch them into the NBA’s elite company.
The axiom for all investment assets should be: Buy low, sell high. When it comes to Nets center Mason Plumlee, at least general manager Billy King got the first part right.
Let’s be honest, there’s not much of a market for an oft-injured, overpriced and underperforming 30-year-old point guard. So my advice to Brooklyn: get what you can now.
So … everyone’s seen Billy King’s record when he (twice) had carte blanche to construct a franchise, but now Nets fans are supposed to be OK with ownership allowing him to burn it to the ground?
My exhortation was in no way expressing any displeasure towards Great Britain’s monarchy, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It’s time to end the reign of GM Billy King.
Jason Kidd revealed a distrust of the Nets’ front office and a desire to get past his messy departure from the franchise when he returned to Brooklyn on Wednesday as coach of the Bucks.
Mr. Prokhorov, let’s forget about this Knicks nonsense for a while and get down to what this organization really needs: a competent general manager.
“I believe all the possibilities for being a champion are in place,” Hollins said. “And we just have to do our jobs to make it a reality, both the players and the coaches. And then we can all celebrate together.”
How is Billy King still on the job? It would be one thing if this was his first rodeo. But let’s not forget that he destroyed the 76ers.
