With tough games upcoming versus Miami and Chicago later this week, the Nets were staring at another cliff if they gagged against Orlando on Monday night.
For Nets fans, it’s just another sign of disrespect that obviously hasn’t ebbed despite the franchise’s move to Brooklyn.
Maybe it really does take a village. P.J. Carlesimo figured his best shot in front of a ready-to-rock Madison Square Garden crowd was to show Anthony “different looks.” And faces. Eight of them, by my count.
I trust that Lou will find the answer, but it might take him another year.
What a far cry from the player I watched a few months ago. Of course, when Teletovic plays, that means others don’t.
The next few weeks, starting with a home game versus Central Division-leading Indiana on Sunday, will be a better determinant of how far the Nets have come.
Instead of merely bean-counting, the NHL’s caretakers should be looking for ways to bring the game back from the muck it’s become.
When MarShon Brooks has his game going, he is a threat to score from almost any spot on the floor.
Call off the search party. Send the hounds back to the kennel. The real Brooklyn Nets were found last night in Oklahoma City.
In case King forgot, interim is defined as an intervening temporary period. It implies an ending at some point.
The end was no surprise, but I was a bit shocked by the timing. I would have never guessed that Brooklyn coach Avery Johnson would fail to make it into the New Year.
Those were the good ole days, when coach Avery Johnson’s Nets brought the fight to teams with strong interior play and rebounding on both ends.
The Nets’ schedule is only going to get more daunting as the New Year approaches. We’ll know soon if the Nets are back to playing consistent basketball or if this show was just a One-Night-Only engagement.
There is room on the Knicks for Stoudemire, who could return in the next week from the knee injury that has sidelined him all season.
It appears that Brooklyn guard Joe Johnson is living in the same alternate dimension that Jets coach Rex Ryan calls home.
