The league seems content to take as much of the fans’ money as fast as they can, even if it means more performances by understudies in lieu of marquee attractions like Brook Lopez.
LeBron and Melo are in play as free agents. Other stars like Kevin Love and Rajon Rondo may be trait bait. And the Nets will be watching it all unfold on social media, just like me.
New York has attempted to deal Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire in a deal for the four-time NBA All-Star, but Danny Ainge doesn’t appear to be interested, according to a report.
All those questions directed at the newcomers at the press conference would have been more appropriate for Williams, the man with that one ball in his hands most often.
The Celtics have denied the Nets the opportunity to speak with coveted head coach Doc Rivers.
Outside of the cities that the respective teams represent, there is little that connects the 2004 Yankees and Red Sox to the 2013 Knicks and Celtics.
Lopez was selected to replace Boston’s Rajon Rondo in next month’s game, the league announced Wednesday.
Carmelo Anthony’s ill feelings toward Kevin Garnett didn’t last long. His streak of 20-point games goes on.
Whatever they do, the Knicks’ success will be determined by how they control Rondo. In many ways, their success this season will be determined by how they control the opponent’s quick guards off the dribble.
It wasn’t a Merry Christmas for the Nets who were dominated by the Celtics 93-76.
Joe Johnson scored 18 points, Andray Blatche had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Boston Celtics 95-83 on Wednesday night after Rajon Rondo was ejected following a fight.
The Knicks’ hot start on the court is paying dividends for the franchise’s merchandise sector. The league released its latest sales-rankings list on Wednesday, with the Knicks leading the team-sales category for the first time since December 2004.
While a win over the Celtics in mid-November is nice, it’s not the same thing as beating that team in green in April. Thursday night’s game was a good win for the Nets, and it should fuel their confidence and desire. However, it proved nothing.
As “statement games” go, the Nets’ 102-97 victory over Boston last night should probably be declared in a whisper.
Craving a victory over a top team, all the Brooklyn Nets needed was someone to make a couple of big shots. That’s one of the reasons they traded for Joe Johnson.
