Amy Williams, Deron Williams

Happy Halloween! We haven’t parsed through every NBA-related costume yet, but find it hard to believe one could be better than Deron Williams’. The Brooklyn Nets’ star dressed as an incredibly life-like Khal Drogo from “Game Of Thrones” as wife Amy played an equally impressive part as Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen. Read More »

Rajon Rondo Rides Boston’s T Before Win Over The Nets

Mirza Teletovic, Rajon Rondo

It seems Rajon Rondo felt good to go around nap-time when the Brooklyn Nets were in Boston last night to tip off the 2014-15 season. Except, Rondo didn’t want to deal with Boston’s crazy traffic and opted to take public transportation to the game before helping the C’s eviscerate the Nets, 121-105. Read More »

Deron Williams

Kevin Garnett: “I Have A Little Bit Of An Edge To Me This Year”

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett wasn’t satisfied with his oft-dispiriting play of last season, and has a way to ensure that similar struggles won’t plague him in 2014-2015. How? By playing with an “edge” that the notoriously intense future Hall-of-Famer apparently lacked in his first season with the Brookyn Nets. Read More »

44-Minute Game Experiment Clocks In At Under Two Hours Of Real Time

Marcus Thornton

The NBA’s 44-minute game experiment came and went today without much fanfare, especially considering the stir of discussion it created earlier this week. We’ll have to wait and see if the league considers the common sentiment of players and coaches that cutting games from the regular season schedule would be more beneficial than shortening the length of them. The takeaway for now is that the first 44-minute game – a 95-90 Boston Celtics win over the Brooklyn Nets – clocked in at under two hours of real time. Read More »

Report: Kevin Garnett Won’t Commit To 2014-2015 As His Final Season

Kevin Garnett

The Brooklyn Nets officially met the media for the first of the 2014-2015 season today. Though all players had at least some contact with reporters throughout the offseason, there was one extremely notable exception: Kevin Garnett. The Big Ticket’s future was in limbo for the majority of the summer, a reality owed as much to his silence as Brooklyn’s collective insistence that it was unaware of his plans for 2014-2015.

Report: Fully Healthy, Deron Williams Plans On Resuming Superstar Status

(photo. NBATattoos.Tumblr.com)

The cause of Deron Williams’ basketball NBA nadir was no secret. The Brooklyn Nets’ supposed franchise cornerstone played on injured ankles in each of the last two seasons, culminating in the most disappointing campaign of his career in 2013-2014. When it was announced in late May that Williams had double surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle and a loose bone fragment from his right, it hardly spelled a comeback for a player many once considered the league’s best point guard.
