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.
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.
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.
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?
It appears that the Nets still hope to win this season, just not as currently constructed.
The statement from the players came before a game in Brooklyn that was attended by Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, as well as NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
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.
Both the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are enduring shooting woes heading into the latest installment of their city rivalry.
Check out the Priceless Things To Do this week in NYC, week of November 24th-30th.
Joe Johnson, a 2014 All-Star and the Nets’ go-to scorer down the stretch of tight games, is not one who usually shares his beefs with the media. But something sure is bugging him these days.
It’s early, but it appears Deron Williams is a different player than a season ago. The veteran point guard has done basically everything right of late and on Monday was rewarded for it.
Deron Williams scored a season-high 29 points and the Brooklyn Nets beat the New York Knicks 110-99 on Friday night in the first meeting this season between the city rivals.
I say 45-37 sounds about right to me–good enough for fifth place in the East. And I’ll set it even without an injury caveat.
The Brooklyn Nets were one of the biggest stories in basketball at this time last year, a team that had spent like never before and believed it had built a title contender. They didn’t get close.
At least Deron Williams isn’t returning to the U.S. in a walking boot. He survived the trip, which is all the Nets want from him out of this preseason.
