NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Nets' Brook Lopez says he's lost about 15 pounds

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez has lost some weight while recovering from his fractured fifth metatarsal.

With so much attention focused on the health of Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, the silence of Kevin Garnett, the departure of Paul Pierce, the emergence of Mason Plumlee and the "youth movement," Jack's acquisition hasn't gotten much attention. But last week's announcement that the man he...

His per game averages took major dips, and the guy who was once thought to be the best point guard in the NBA was nowhere to be seen. His fan-base has dwindled as a lot of people have lost all faith in him as a franchise player. Things couldn't possibly...
