GIF: J.R. Smith’s Spinning No-Look Dime To Cole Aldrich

Alan Anderson, J.R. Smith

The Knicks were awful last night. Just dreadful, and Carmelo Anthony continued to struggle shooting the ball (he’s just 10-for-41 in his last two games, both Knicks losses). The Nets jumped all over their intra-city rivals in a 110-99 game that was actually a lot worse before the Knicks partially recovered in the fourth. About the only positive for the Knicks was a slinky spin move by J.R. Smith before he scooped a no-look dime to Cole Aldrich. Read More »

Jason Kidd Challenges Nets Owner To Game Of 1-On-1

Jason Kidd, Giannis Antetokounmpo

Earlier this week Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov sounded off on his former coach Jason Kidd in a highly entertaining chat with reporters. The Russian tycoon relayed the proverb, “Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” and said, “I think we should get even,” after Kidd left Brooklyn in the lurch to sign a three-year, $15 million contract to coach the Bucks this summer. When Kidd was told about the comments, he had a pretty funny rebuttal: a one-on-one showdown between the two. Read More »

Meanwhile, the Nets welcomed back Brook Lopez in his season debut after an 11-month absence, and they maintained complete control of the game throughout the night. However, one moment got the Barclays Center rocking to its loudest decimal just before halftime. 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 »
