Brooklyn Nets Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s favorite Star Wars character is E.T., not technically wrong

Everybody has a favorite Star Wars character. Some people prefer the humble Luke Skywalker, others like the cocky Han Solo or the evil Sith lord Darth Vader. There’s practically an endless number of choices, and they’re all right. The Brooklyn Nets thought they’d capitalize on the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and asked some of their players who their favorite...

Brooklyn Nets face tough decisions with the direction of franchise

The Nets aren’t good, but owe their 1st round pick to Boston, making the decision to begin the rebuilding process all the more difficult.

Boston will be the benefits of the hideous seasons the Nets are undergoing and this...

Someone call Ponce de Leon: Paul Pierce found the Fountain of Youth. The 38-year-old Los Angeles Clippers forward turned on the jets — both the speedy kind and the ones that lift you up, apparently — and blew past a bunch of Brooklyn Nets for a left-handed slam on Saturday night.

Nets misspell the Hebrew on their own Jewish Heritage Night

The Brooklyn Nets celebrated Hanukkah Thursday night for their game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a whole bunch of Judaism-themed activities. They even had a game between kids and Rabbis at halftime. That’s all well and good, but they did have one tiny faux pax. They were selling shirts saying “Represent Brooklyn” in Hebrew, but the Hebrew was misspelled. The error eventually...

Clippers-Nets Preview

Playing at home or on the road has made all the difference for the Brooklyn Nets. That's also been the case when they face the Los Angeles Clippers. No Eastern Conference team has been better on its home floor over the past month than the Nets, a team against which Los Angeles has one road win since the turn of the century.

Nets defeat Sixers in ugly fashion, 100-91

Two of the weaker teams in not only the Eastern Conference, but the entire NBA faced off on Thursday evening at the Barclays Center. Having won three of their last five games, the Nets were looking to add another win against the league’s worst team, the 76ers. After some sluggish play on both ends the game remained relatively close throughout the game’s entirety. Despite a back...

Worse than everyone's.Now, looking at the Nets point guards isn't quite as horrifying...

Brooklyn Nets rebuild plan: Buy a bunch of 2nd-round draft picks?

I understand Nets coach Lionel Hollins was just trying to put on nice face on things, and I don't blame him.  What else can you do when you're asked about the draft future of a team that won't get to use its own first-round pick until 2019?  Still, what he said the other night was laugh-out-loud funny: After being asked about BKN's lack of 1st-rounders, Lionel Hollins points out...

How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

Now that a little dose of reality has been administered, I think we can rule out a “taking a bad team lightly” game from the Celtics. The guys have learned that they’re pretty damn good when they’re fully engaged, and they can be pretty bad when they get aloof and slack off. It’s a nice reminder at this point of the season that the Celtics success if about effort and execution…...

No one showed up to watch Hawks-Nets (photos)

It’s no secret that the Brooklyn Nets are a bad team. From ownership, to management to a barren roster, they’re one of the worst teams in the NBA right now. They brought a 1-9 record into Tuesday’s game against the Hawks at the Barclays Center, and maybe that’s why literally no one showed up to watch them play. The photos really tell the story of a game that featured tons...

Brooklyn Nets are a model of inefficiency

The Nets were always going to be an arduous watch this season. With its mishmash of crafty, vertically-challenged scorers, a nineties-era point guard, and a slew of flawed prospects trying to merely prove they belong in the NBA, Brooklyn was never going to be capable of churning out an entertaining brand of basketball. Not even the franchise’s top-notch broadcast duo of Ian...
