As the Jets head to Cortland for training camp this week, questions abound related to the specifics of general manager John Idzik’s offseason retooling. For instance, is Eric Decker really a No. 1 receiver? And where did all the corners go?
How is Billy King still on the job? It would be one thing if this was his first rodeo. But let’s not forget that he destroyed the 76ers.
It seems so long ago now, back when LeBron was a Cavalier and the Nets were in New Jersey. But let’s not forget that those Nets were never able to knock off the King James when it counted when Cleveland’s next-best player was Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
I doubt it will take Lionel Hollins more than a third of the season to figure it out the way it did J-Kidd. That’s because experience matters.
King just tabbed Lionel Hollins — the man he should have waited for last season — to coach. Now bring back Pierce at market value and let’s see what this team has.
Nets general manager Billy King’s pants must have been ablaze last week when he smiled through the unveiling of plans for a new state-of-the-art practice facility in Brooklyn.
Good riddance, J-Kidd. Hey, Milwaukee: Got any room in your front office for Billy King as well?
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.
Soccer fever will grip the planet this week as the 2014 World Cup kicks off in Brazil. I already have a headache. Before you pounce on me with derivations of “ugly American,” hear me out.
So the Knicks actually think the Jason Kidd nouveau-coach experiment worked in Brooklyn this past season?
How in the world can King find Williams a ride out of town? It’s not as hard as you think, provided you understand that the Nets won’t get close to full value in return.
Here’s my prediction as to who will and who will not be members of the Nets when the 2014-15 season tips off in late October.
In as fitting an ending as you could script for this season, the host Heat roared back from an eight-point deficit in the last three minutes to send the Nets back to Brooklyn for good, 96-94.
The cold truth is that these guys are limited in what they can be counted on to do night-in and night-out. And this series has proven that those limits make it awfully hard to take down a King.
Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd turned to Teletovic and asked him to do the seemingly impossible — go toe-to-toe with the best player on the planet.
