Forget the 24-hour rule — I want to file a missing person report. It seems that Nets backup center Andray Blatche inexplicably disappeared sometime early in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s 95-90 loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles.
Kobe Bryant scored six of his 25 points in the final two minutes, and the Lakers hung on for a 95-90 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night in Mike D’Antoni’s sideline debut.
Dwight Howard doesn’t care if he’s severed his relationship with Brooklyn Nets’ star Deron Williams.
Dwight who? If the Nets keep getting production at center, it won’t be long before I forget the whole Howard soap opera.
The benefits gained from the Lakers hiring Mike D’Antoni are endless.
Now that the dust has settled, the Lakers’ decision to hire Mike D’Antoni over proven winner Phil Jackson isn’t any less shocking.
D’Antoni’s reputation as an innovative coach wasn’t helped by his tenure in New York. Now he has a chance to rebound in Los Angeles.
The Lakers handed Mike Brown the pink slip after 5 games and will undoubtedly turn to Phil Jackson as their first choice replacement.
This is as good a weekend as any to see if the Nets learned anything from their initial missteps. I want to see the Nets step on the Magic’s throat and not let go until the game is safely out of reach. Study the Heat film for tips.
Charles Barkley doesn’t like the Knicks’ chances. Surprise, surprise.
“If you want to go to flash and dunking and the pick-and-roll, you gotta go with Dwight Howard,” Shaq said. “But me, I’m going with Andrew Bynum and which Lopez? Brook. Brook Lopez.”
In the end, after two years of rumors, speculation and negotiations, the Nets failed to land the big man.
He may not be Dwight Howard, but the Nets are ready to begin their inaugural season at Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center with one of the league’s best centers.
Speaking at a news conference on Friday, general manager Billy King and coach Avery Johnson said that the Nets can be one of the top teams in the East, but they need a few more pieces to compete for an NBA Title.
