Deron Williams and Brook Lopez may be former All-Stars on max contracts, but the Nets have been playing superior basketball when they are off the floor.
The axiom for all investment assets should be: Buy low, sell high. When it comes to Nets center Mason Plumlee, at least general manager Billy King got the first part right.
Let’s be honest, there’s not much of a market for an oft-injured, overpriced and underperforming 30-year-old point guard. So my advice to Brooklyn: get what you can now.
It’s bad enough that this Nets season appears to be headed for epic disaster, but the list of embarrassments from Tuesday night’s Heat game was so frighteningly long I don’t even know where to begin.
Forget Mariota. Forget Winston. The Jets won a game in the present, but likely lost out at a shot at a brighter future.
So … everyone’s seen Billy King’s record when he (twice) had carte blanche to construct a franchise, but now Nets fans are supposed to be OK with ownership allowing him to burn it to the ground?
My exhortation was in no way expressing any displeasure towards Great Britain’s monarchy, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It’s time to end the reign of GM Billy King.

After a couple of 8-8 seasons had us thinking that maybe they’re not so far away, there’s no obscuring the Jets’ true status now.
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.

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.
