Bogdanovic, a Croatian sharpshooter, was drafted by the Heat and traded to the Timberwolves in the 2011 Draft before ending up with the Nets Clearly, this past season didn't end exactly as the Nets and GM Billy King had hoped, with a disappointing Round 1 loss to the banged-up Chicago Bulls. We saw it all from Brooklyn in that series: offensive inconsistency,  defensive shortcomings, mental lapses, blown leads, and the list can go on and on. But what we didn't see was a very deep bench, as long-gone P.J. Carlesimo shrunk his rotation to astronomically-small proportions at times, sticking with ineffective starters as opposed to fresh reserves. However, one could make the argument that such an action was reasonable, as some of the Nets' bench-players just didn't step up in the playoffs.

Carlesimo: Nets' Title Expectations Not Realistic Based On Roster

P.J. Carlesimo had a 35-19 record as interim head coach of the Brooklyn Nets and said that expectations from ownership are not lining up with the level of talent on the roster.

Stackhouse Kicked a Lot of Ass

Notorious dark alley guy Jerry Stackhouse stopped by Highly Questionable and talked  kicking ass and taking names. Be sure to stick around for some of that good old a cappella that Jerry’s also known for at the end (I guess…..?) Bron Vs Jordan Invasion of the Bowties

Memphis’ D.J. Stephens Sets Record With 46-Inch Vertical Leap, Kissed Rim in Practice (Video)

D.J. Stephens is not guaranteed to get picked in next month’s NBA draft. Teams might have trouble buying that a 6-foot-5 power forward can survive in the pros, so the senior out of Memphis might have to wait until after the draft to sign somewhere as a rookie free agent. Stephens reportedly helped his cause in a workout with the Brooklyn Nets, though. He recorded a 46-inch maximum...
