My expectations for 2013 couldn’t be any lower. But there’s another way for fans to view this season as it unfolds besides absorbing the pain from each defeat.
First-and-goal is a time you stand up in anticipation of your team’s exclamation point to their drive, not for Jets’ fans.
Face it, we’re stuck with the devil we know all too well. A QB with poor accuracy and vision, and prone to the most mind-boggling turnovers you’ll ever see.
The Knicks will continue to rule New York City as they always have in terms of public support and media coverage. As a long-suffering Nets fan, I’ve come to grips with that reality.
While many of the faces have changed from the group that lost a Game 7 home game to Chicago to end last season, many of the same challenges remain. Below, I list the Nets’ three biggest question marks going into the 2013-14 season.
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.
Prokhorov isn’t putting up all this money just to make the playoffs — he wants a championship, or at least a serious run at it. Kidd, with help from his staff, will have to sort out all these new parts to find the right formula in a hurry.
Though Blatche’s high-risk decisions with the ball sometimes backfired, the skills he displayed had the fans begging for more.
I’ll say this about Nets general manager Billy King—he likes to make the offseason as exciting as the games.
Various media reports are suggesting that the brain trust in Brooklyn (meaning general manager Billy King) wants to add a first-round pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft and is willing to cede swingman MarShon Brooks to get it. As usual, I have no idea what King is thinking.
I just don’t get it. It was reported that Jason Kidd “impressed” GM Billy King during his meeting. With what? His shiny championship ring?
Since Kidd single-handedly turned around the Nets franchise upon his trade to New Jersey in 2002, they owe him. If there’s some capacity in which Kidd could fit in with the club’s long-term plans, it’s worth the discussion. Just not as head coach.
Plan A seemed to be, “Let’s get Phil Jackson!” That pipe dream was extinguished after one courtesy phone call. We’re still waiting on Plan B.
If you thought the boo-birds were merciless last season, when Sanchez’s 26 turnovers led the league, wait till he works with this group. On the other hand, why wait?
Out before Memorial Day. It was all so sudden, mostly because of the mammoth expectations we placed on our favorite teams this season.
