“I plan on living here for the rest of my life,” the 37-year-old point guard and Brooklyn native said in an interview in the lobby of his plush apartment building in the heart of Beijing.
Joe Johnson scored 27 points, Mason Plumlee added 19 points and a career-high 13 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Denver Nuggets 102-96 on Tuesday night.
This year hasn’t been particularly kind to sports franchises in the Tri-State area. Every team has something (in certain cases, multiple things) they’d like from Santa.
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.
LeBron James scored 22 points and Mike Miller, making his first start of the season, added 21 on seven 3-pointers, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 95-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
Kyle Lowry had 20 points and 12 assists, Jonas Valanciunas added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Toronto Raptors used a big fourth quarter to beat the Brooklyn Nets 105-89 Wednesday night.
The Nets said goodbye on Tuesday to one of their biggest fans, as players wore shirts with “Gamblero” and “44” in neon during warmups.
It’s bad enough that this Nets season appears to be headed for epic disaster, but the list of embarrassments from Tuesday night’s Heat game was so frighteningly long I don’t even know where to begin.
Gamblero made headlines earlier this month when he was carried out of a Nets-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden without his prosthetic leg.
Joe Johnson scored 22 points, Deron Williams and Mason Plumlee had double-doubles and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Charlotte Hornets 114-87 on Saturday night for their second straight victory.
Mason Plumlee scored a season-high 18 points and had 10 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets broke open a close game in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 88-70 on Friday night.
The 76ers have acquired veteran forward Andrei Kirilenko, a second-round pick in the 2020 draft, guard Jorge Gutierrez and cash considerations from the Nets in exchange for forward Brandon Davies.
To say that it was an air ball is not doing it justice. The ball didn’t get remotely close to the basket, and it looked like more of a pass than a shot.
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?
When King James touched the future queen of England on the shoulder after a basketball game, royal watchers cried foul.
