Lichtenstein: After 2 Summer Upheavals, Nets’ King Choked By NBA Cap

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.

Lichtenstein: Deron Needed To Answer Questions At Press Conference

Giglio: Knicks-Celtics Series Is Far From 2004 Yankees-Red Sox ALCS

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.

Schmeelk: The Key For The Knicks On Thursday Night? Stop Rajon Rondo!

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.

Silverman: The Nets’ Victory Over The Celtics Was Nice, But It Proved Nothing

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.

Lichtenstein: Who Cares Whether Nets’ Win Over Rondo-Less Celtics Was A Statement?

Lichtenstein: Lopez Exits Preseason Healthy, But Remains Deficient On Defense
