GIF: Why Cory Jefferson’s Air Ball Is The Worst

Cory Jefferson air ball

The Nets announcers were being kind after Nets rookie Cory Jefferson threw up a three-pointer against Chicago last night that seemed to deflate halfway to the basket. His air ball was one of the more atrocious shots we’ve ever seen, but as Ballislife notes, there are plenty of other contenders for the worst shot so far this year. Still, this one was so bad, the Nets announcers though Jefferson must have been looking to pass. Read More »

Report: Nets Are Shopping Stars, Joe Johnson, Deron Williams & Brook Lopez

Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez

The Brooklyn Nets are off to an 8-11 start this season, which is a far cry from title contention — a supposed goal when owner Mikhail Prokhorov moved the team to Brooklyn. They’re still in better shape than last season’s calamitous 10-21 start under now-departed coach Jason Kidd — who is working wonders in Milwaukee. Despite a better opening to the season, sources tell ESPN.com the Nets have made stars Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson available in trade talks, as an attempt to retool, but without sacrificing wins.

Midway through the third quarter — cue tired jokes about LA on Twitter — Prince William and Kate Middleton took their court-side seats, flanked by Dikembe Mutombo.

Video: Nets Fan, Missing His Prosthetic Leg, Carried Out Of MSG By Security

Jeffrey Gamblero

We were at the Knicks-Nets game last night and word quickly spread among some of the media that a Nets fan, with a prosthetic leg, had been kicked out of the arena. Video surfaced on Instagram, and the Knicks have released a statement because any time you have three security officers dragging a recumbent man missing his prosthetic leg out of a sporting event — as onlookers boo, no less — it’s a PR fiasco.

Mason Plumlee, Lionel Hollins

After becoming a state champion in his native Indiana during his high school career, and spending four years at Duke under coach Mike Krzyzewski, seven footer Mason Plumlee found it simple to blend in with a Brooklyn Nets team last year with very real aspirations beyond the first round of the playoffs. In our conversation with Plumlee last week, we touched on his unending drive to get better, the self-sacrifice necessary to win, the fun of blowing up zombies and much more. Read More »

Watch Kevin Garnett Repeatedly Slap Himself In Face En Route To Court

There’s no sense in hiding it now – we love Kevin Garnett. Stuff like this is of many, many reasons why the future Hall-of-Famer will always be one of our all-time favorites. As the Brooklyn Nets made their way through the tunnels of Chesapeake Energy Arena to begin their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Garnett trailed his teammates and repeatedly slapped himself in the face – with both hands! – to prepare for tip-off.
