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.

Report: Nets Likely To Trade Or Buyout Andrei Kirilenko

Andrei Kirilenko, Travis Wear

Remember when Andrei Kirilenko turned down what would have been more than $10 million in his final year in Minnesota to sign a two-year deal for what was a mini mid-level exception in Brooklyn? Yeah, the NBA even investigated — and cleared — claims of corruption because Kirilenko shares the same heritage as Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Now it seems like he’s close to gone from BK and the New York Post‘s Tim Bontemps claims the Nets will either trade AK-47 or just buy him out. Read More »

Video: Jason Kidd Gets Booed During Introductions At Barclays Center

Jason Kidd

Jason Kidd ultimately got the last laugh in his initial return to Barclays Center with the Milwaukee Bucks. Before the game, though, Brooklyn Nets faithful let their team’s former coach know exactly what they thought of his controversial departure from the Borough. Read More »

GIFs: Brandon Knight Blows Game-Winning Layup; Bucks Bench Reacts

Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Brooklyn Nets 122-118 in three overtimes on Wednesday night. That part bears mentioning before we continue, and even repeating again – Milwaukee won this game. But if Brandon Knight had made a dead layup as the clock expired in the first extra period, the Bucks could’ve left Barclays Center a lot earlier. Read More »

Video: Shabazz Napier Turns Deron Williams Backwards

Shabazz Napier, Deron Williams

Ater battling ankle injuries the last couple seasons, Deron Williams started the 2014-15 claiming he was fully healthy and back to all-star form. We’re not sure he can say the same thing about his ankles after Shabazz Napier got done crossing him up during 95-83 Heat win in Brooklyn last night. Read More »

Video: Hulk Hogan Tries To Hype Up Warriors Crowd

Hulk Hogan

A long time ago, we owned a Hulk Hogan Wrestling Buddy, and we used to mimic the Hulkster with our friends — who all had the Ultimate *Warrior* Wrestling Buddy. Last night, when the Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets, Hogan was on hand to take over Golden State’s Twitter account and give a largely ignored speech to the Bay area crowd in an effort to get them excited for the upcoming Wrestlemania 31 (aka Wrestlemania Play).

GIF: Steph Curry Hits Another Pre-Game Shot From The Tunnel

Jarrett Jack, Stephen Curry

Earlier this month, we showed you Stephen Curry knocking down a shot from the player’s tunnel at Oracle Arena in Oakland. After going 0-of-7 from long range in Golden State’s loss to the Spurs on Wednesday night, Steph showed he’s still got the touch from way, way back with another tunnel shot that ripped the nylon.

GIF: Andre Iguodala Coast-To-Coast Jam

Andre Iguodala

Recently, Joe Johnson made waves when he claimed his then- 4-and-2 Nets were playing selfishly on offense. You could never accuse Warriors first-time six man Andre Iguodala of being selfish. The former all-star, who has selflessly agreed to lead the Dubs second team, has barely looked at the rim this season — he’s averaging a career low 6 shot attempts per contest through the team’s first eight games. But on one play before halftime last night against the visiting Nets, Iggy eschewed the pass for an exciting coast-to-coast gallivant. Read More »

GIF: Eric Bledsoe Crosses Up D-Will & Switches Hands Mid-Air For Layup

Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe, Deron Williams

Bench guards Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas led the Suns to a 112-104 win over the visiting Nets last night with 28 and 21 points, respectively. Because they were playing so well, Eric Bledsoe played less than half the game. Still, on this high screen by Markieff Morris, his move on Deron Williams and mid-air switching of hands was borderline Jordanesque. Read More »

Joe Johnson Says Nets Have “Been Very Selfish” Offensively Despite Success

Joe Johnson

The Brooklyn Nets are 4-2. And though Lionel Hollins’ teams of the past were known for winning with defense, it’s this group’s play on the other end that has spurred them to early season success – Brooklyn’s 109.5 offensive rating ranks second in the league. According to Joe Johnson, though, the Nets should be scoring the ball with even more ease. After shootaround on Tuesday, the seven-time All-Star ripped his teammates for “very selfish” play on offense. Read More »
