YouTube First-year Nets head coach Jason Kidd has never run a team from an NBA or even college bench. On Sunday, he made his coaching debut during an NBA Summer League game. The guy who distributed 12,091 assists over his NBA career distributed nearly as many (eight) fist bumps prior to Sunday’s tilt. The most meaningful stat during the Pistons 76-67 win over New Jersey (it’s...
Jason Kidd is wasting no time getting in good with his Brooklyn Nets players. He gave some nice compliments to Deron Williams.
NBA Summer League play began on Sunday, with the Orlando Summer League getting underway (it runs through July 12th, while the Las Vegas Summer League is from July 12-22). It was the first chance for many rookies to get their first NBA (ish) action.
One such player was the Nets' Mason Plumlee, who was selected 22nd by Brooklyn in the June draft. While the Nets lost their Summer...
Jason Kidd is considered one of the greatest point guards in NBA history but, as the new Brooklyn Nets head coach, the future Hall of Famer may have a knack for throwing assists to his players off the court as well.
Kidd, who led a group of no-name Nets to consecutive NBA Finals a decade ago, actually believes the Nets now have a better point guard in Deron Williams than his teams...
There has been a ton of speculation this off-season as to who the Brooklyn Nets will bring in as Deron Williams’ backup. Names like Sebastian Telfair, Shaun Livingston, John Lucas, Jamaal Tinsley and Chauncey Billups have been rumored to be on the Nets list. However, the Nets have another point guard on their roster right [...]

Recent Nets draft pick Mason Plumlee did not waste any time in showing why Brooklyn took him with the 22nd overall pick.
In the team’s first summer league game, the Duke alum made a bid for his first SportsCenter “Top 10” dunk as a pro. With six minutes remaining in the first quarter against the Pistons, Plumlee spun around fellow rookie Peyton Siva and threw down a vicious...
Though I wasn't a fan of Danny Ainge's KG-Pierce trade, I was pleased with his last minute alteration to acquire 24 year-old Marshon Brooks. The 6'5" shooting guard has a skillset that some have even called Kobe-esque (not saying he's the next Kobe), and his 7'1" wingspan allows him to get his shot off even when heavily guarded. He only played 13 minutes...
It’s been an interesting offseason for GM Chris Grant and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
On draft day, the Cavs surprised everyone not only by picking UNLV’s Anthony Bennett first overall, but that they didn’t make any other major trades. No trade up with Dallas, no flipping the second round picks for that oh-so-necessary Veteran Leader… I mean, hell, the Cavs actually took a player...
It has been three years since the Circus left the city of Cleveland, when the player that Northeast Ohio idolized LeBron James decided to abandon the Cleveland Cavaliers for the bright lights of South Beach. While the former “Chosen One,” has appeared in three straight NBA Finals, winning the last two; times have been tough for his former franchise. The team has been cellar-dwellers...
The Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in signing Andrew Bynum.
Bynum has also received serious interest from the Dallas Mavericks.
The Cavaliers will not offer a multi-year deal to Bynum, however, as they want to preserve cap space for 2014 and their expected pursuit of LeBron James.
The Cavaliers could offer $15 million in cap space to Bynum.
The Atlanta Hawks are the only other...
