Lichtenstein: Nets Should Stop Kidding Themselves On J-Kidd’s Candidacy

Since Kidd single-handedly turned around the Nets franchise upon his trade to New Jersey in 2002, they owe him. If there’s some capacity in which Kidd could fit in with the club’s long-term plans, it’s worth the discussion. Just not as head coach.

Silverman: Anthony Has Much To Learn From Olympic-Teammate James

It doesn’t take long for a player to change his perception. If James can do it in Miami, Anthony can do it in New York.

Keidel: Carmelo May Be The Cure For Linsanity

In an otherwise cold month in the sporting calendar, Lin made everyone warmer. And Lin made everyone better, not just scoring but imbuing an otherwise fallow team and town with hope. The impact was real and the team’s record reflected it.

Schmeelk: Nowitzki’s Performance Can Only Be Described As RIDIRKULOUS

There’s no other word to describe it. I had to make one up. That was riDirkulous. I hope everyone enjoyed the show Dirk Nowitzki put on last night. It’s something you might never see again.
