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.
The Nets are diligently working to trade for Hawks forward Josh Smith, league sources told ESPN. While the two teams have discussed a possible swap, one source told the network that “there has been lots of talk, (but) nothing is close yet.”
P.J. Carlesimo seemed to invigorate his club’s stars in winning 12 of his first 14 games as interim coach. Now, there’s a sense that there’s little he can do for a team that simply can’t make shots.
Nets fans, snap out of that recurring Dwightmare.
According to a report, Nets general manager Billy King is looking for a third team to work with in an effort to complete a blockbuster trade that would send the 6-foot-11 center to Brooklyn.
When asked directly if Blatche approached him for a conversation, Carlesimo replied, “No. Uh-uh. We just — we went and played.”
In case King forgot, interim is defined as an intervening temporary period. It implies an ending at some point.
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.
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.
Avery Johnson was fired on Thursday as coach of the Brooklyn Nets, who have fallen to .500 in their season of new surroundings and elevated expectations.
The end was no surprise, but I was a bit shocked by the timing. I would have never guessed that Brooklyn coach Avery Johnson would fail to make it into the New Year.
The symbolism of Monday night’s game will supersede anything that will be relevant to the ultimate composition of the 2012-13 regular-season standings.
It’s holiday time in New York, which means pundits from across all media platforms have been compiling their “relevant” lists from the past year. So, in keeping with tradition, here’s my list.
