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.
With the NBA season kicking off on Wednesday, here’s my preview and ranking predictions for the 2012-2013 NBA season. This is how I see the Eastern Conference breaking down, and my season award winners.
“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.
The Dwight Howard trade saga seems to be over, at least for now. The Brooklyn Nets have moved on to their backup plan, reaching an agreement on a reported four-year deal with Brook Lopez.
League sources told CBSSports.com on Tuesday that the Cavaliers have dropped out of consideration as potential trading partners with the Nets and Magic.
With Marcus Camby returning to Madison Square Garden, the present-day New York Knicks are resembling their defensive-strong teams of the late 1990s. Who is to say that New York can’t be the third-best team in the East?
I can’t believe what I’m reading. The Magic are really going to trade the best (by far) center in the NBA for Brook Lopez, bad players, and three or four first round picks that will all be in the mid to late twenties? Is this really happening?
It seems the ongoing Dwight Howard trade saga just took a favorable turn for Brooklyn. The Nets are emerging again as favorites to land the unhappy center, according to reports.
So you’re saying there’s a chance? The Magic are still entertaining trade talks for embattled star Dwight Howard, but are in “no rush” to ship out the big man, according to CBSSports.com.
Orlando should make Howard pay for his stupidity and his nonsense. He deserves it.
It seems the Nets have some company in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes.
When word got about the Joe Johnson trade, the general sentiment was that all but ended any chance of Dwight Howard patrolling the paint in Brooklyn any time soon. Not so fast my friend.
Not even a new general manager in Orlando could quell the Magic’s ongoing Dwight Howard drama. The All-Star center still really, really likes the idea of playing with the Nets.
I understand why it would sound nice to play in his native Canada, but a championship has to be the priority for a two-time MVP that doesn’t have a ring.
