@Max Weisberg@M I K E Yep, but Yao did play almost a full season at age 28, so maybe Brook can continue his career.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Brook’s out. Now what?
A bit off topic, but is Brook Lopez's career in jeopardy ? How many times can he have that same foot operated on, seeing that it continues to break soon after ? I feel real sorry for the kid.
@dwillofthegodz@M I K E We can't count on anybody but Joe Johnson..What would you give up for a guy like Asik ?
I would start Blatche and AK, and bring Garnett and Teletovic off the bench. Plumlee can fill in at both spots when needed...In the 2nd half and down the stretch we can mix and match the bigs depending on the situation.
How about Blatche at Center and AK at PF ?
Blatche is probably our best Center and AK our best PF...Might as well play them.
Hopefully Teletovic starts at PF...If Kidd starts Reggie I might have to move my TV away from the window.
8 months, 4 weeks ago on Kevin Garnett to rest vs. 76ers, Joe Johnson a game-time decision
Kidd is a coach killer !
Hey Devin, I saw you on the Nets pre-game show on YES and thought you were great...Good luck with your TV career.

I'm sure Teletovic was very unhappy with his situation on the Nets, but increased playing time might of changed his outlook. If and when AK gets back it will be interesting to see if Mirza still gets minutes, and if he doesn't I expect he will be very unhappy once again.
The bright spot for the Nets is Teletovic's trade value might of increased with his recent success.
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Is Mirza Teletovic looking for a trade?
Thank God we are only 1.5 games out of the top spot in the Atlantic Division...If we can't win the Atlantic we don't deserve to be in the playoffs...Most concern is Deron Williams...We need him back and healthy
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Here’s The Nets Injury Situation Right Now
Maybe Kidd by spilling that drink showed his players he will do everything he can to win a game, and maybe they should too.
Kidd had to defer to his coaches and veteran players at the start of his coaching career but now maybe he's going to show them all that he's the boss and he calls the shots.
In otherwords Garnett, Pierce, Deron, Frank etc. are not in charge, Kidd is.
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Nets ABA coach praises Kidd’s spill trick
With all due respect, I think you're being a little too harsh with Livingston's (F) grade.
That 3 minute and change collaspe began with Taylor fouling Novak and then the Nets offense trying to play prevent defense...The Nets are too slow to begin with on offense, and when they try to slow down further they actually come to a full stop.
Tonight's game should be very interesting indeed.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on NETS ESCAPE: Nets 102, Raptors 100 (GAME GRADES)
Ironically what's hurting the Nets right now is all the hype they got before the season started....Everybody in the NBA gets "up" to play the Brooklyn Nets, so it's hard with our depleted lineup to sneak by and steal games from other teams.
Maybe if we keep losing the schedule will get softer for us ? Teams will take us for granted and we might be able to grab some games until we get back Lopez, Deron, AK etc.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Of 5 Injured Nets, Just One Active vs. Raptors
Catch-22 for Teletovic.
He probably needs starter's minutes to be effective, but he probably will never get them with the Nets.
The guy is not a shooter, but a scorer, that is why I'm not surprised he misses so many of his shots.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Mirza Teletovic: I don’t know if I have a role here
Without a healthy and productive Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and AK-47 we probably will not be winning to many games.
Having all three of those guys out at the same time is killing us.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on What’s wrong with the Brooklyn Nets?
@zaha33 The problem with Teletovic IMO is he probably needs starter's minutes to be effective...I don't see the Nets giving him those kind of minutes anytime soon.
9 months, 4 weeks ago on What are you blaming Jason Kidd for?
I still blame Travis Outlaw...He started this whole mess.
Plenty of time to get our act together once we get Deron and Lopez healthy and productive.
Remember, Garnett and Pierce were only suppose to be role players this season, not saviors, and losing AK also hurts us big time.
We need to get to .500 and then make a big push the second half.
Let the Kidd bashing begin ! SMH
The Nets didn't hire Kidd for his X's and O's acumen...He took the blame for the game the other night by saying he coached poorly but I suspect he was just defending his team, and taking the heat off them.
Lets see what our record is 30 games from now before jumping overboard.

Kidd is learning on the job...The Nets hired quality assistants and he would be a fool not to take their advice.

I have enjoyed watching this team this year even with all the "problems".

10 months ago on Scout: Kidd “doesn’t do anything”
Random Thought Time:
The problem with making every Nets game a "statement game" or "must win" game, is that it blows everything out of proportion...We either are great, or we suck, depending on the final score of each and every game...Good teams lose to "bad" teams all the time, but when we do it, it's like it never happened in the history of the NBA before.
I hate losing, but I believe you have the right to vent your frustrations and then get ready for the next game.
In other words, what I'm trying to say, is we have to have a sense of humor about this, and not let it drag us too down.
And one last thought...You have to give the other team credit, no matter how bad you think they are or should be.

Nice work Max...It will be interesting to see how much playing time and how many games Garnett will play this season, and when he sits out games who replaces him.
Nets have so many weapons that I can't for the life of me tell you who our leading scorer will be on any given night.

By the way, I agree with minute restrictions for Deron and AK...It's the smart thing to do.
Great job once again Devin.

@NJBK44 Nets weren't ready to play last night in the seasons opener...No Kidd, no AK, half a Deron, Blatche still on summer vacation and a very shaky Livingston.
Fans get upset because of the Nets mostly dismal past history....A loss like yesterdays reminds them of this.
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Nets sputter in season-opening loss to Cavaliers
I watched the game again this morning and wasn't as upset as last night...Cav's played like their lives were on the line and earned the win....It's hard to judge this Nets team without Deron and AK playing since I believe they are the two most important pieces for this team to succeed and advance to the next level.
Reggie Evans only played 16 minutes but it felt like 36...(LOL)
I blame the loss on everybody and nobody...If we beat Miami tomorrow all will be forgotten and forgiven.
My revised prediction: 81-1

If Garnett and Pierce still have plenty in the tank then this might be the most talented starting lineups I ever seen...But lets see how they do this season before calling them the best.
Too bad Dr. "J" got traded...Then we could of seen how good that ABA Nets team really was once they joined the NBA.

Great cover, but they should've had AK peaking out his head over Kidd's left shoulder...Maybe also Lawrence Frank peaking out his head under Kidds legs.

Livingston just turned 28 last month...He started his NBA career at 19 (2004-2005).
He played nearly 1500 minutes last season, about the same amount CJ Watson played for us.
If Deron has problems staying on the court (ankle) Shaun will have to carry us and we will see how much he can do in this stage of his recovery from that devastating injury he suffered in FEB. 2007.
I wish him the best and hope he stays healthy and productive this season.
