If you look hard, there were some moments and players from 2014 that made us thankful that we are who we are: loyal Big Apple sports fans to the core.
Nets fans attending Wednesday night’s game at the Barclays Center must have felt like the cat in “The Itchy and Scratchy Show.” Because in the end, the rat always wins.
Somewhere in Milwaukee this morning, Bucks coach Jason Kidd is smiling as he reads reports his scouts have filed on the Nets in preparation for his impending return to Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Something has to be done with Brook Lopez. The seven-foot center is just killing the Nets on both ends of the court.
Joe Johnson, a 2014 All-Star and the Nets’ go-to scorer down the stretch of tight games, is not one who usually shares his beefs with the media. But something sure is bugging him these days.
Whenever Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is in town to watch his favorite American toy play basketball, the game often turns out to be of secondary importance. That was the case Monday night.
I say 45-37 sounds about right to me–good enough for fifth place in the East. And I’ll set it even without an injury caveat.
Seven straight losses. The remainder of the season is meaningless. Why even debate the merits of who is the better quarterback between Geno Smith and Michael Vick?
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.
If anything, Thursday night in New England showed how poor this team is — they couldn’t take a game that was practically given to them.
At least Deron Williams isn’t returning to the U.S. in a walking boot. He survived the trip, which is all the Nets want from him out of this preseason.
This disaster of a football team is depressing enough for me, but what does it say about all of you who are paying for the privilege of getting overly worked up every home game?
Assuming they stay healthy — and that’s a pretty big assumption given their medical history — the Nets will revolve around the quartet of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett.
Count on more blowouts, especially on Sunday when Denver comes to MetLife Stadium. Right now that game looks like a mismatch for the ages–parity be damned.
There’s no benefit to finishing 7-9 over 4-12. If the Jets are bad enough, they can have their pick at the best available quarterback coming out of college.
