Photo via:Foxsportssouth The Brooklyn Nets splurged this offseason with the intent to lure Knick fans to join the Nets bandwagon. After three seasons, where the Nets were deemed irrelevant before their move to Brooklyn, the Nets looked at the 2012 offseason with the intent on building a winner right away. The new owners wanted something that could contend with the Knicks for the foreseeable future. Their goal was acquiring Dwight Howard to join Deron Williams, but after opting in during the regular season, the Nets had to trade for him, rather than outright signing him. As the Howard drama played out, and Brooklyn seemed like they weren’t finding a team to help them acquire Howard, the Nets opted to keep their own players, and the results cost huge dividens. Instead of continuing th...

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 1/5

This was a very satisfying win for the Celtics.  I love it when there are a lot of Celtics fans in opposing buildings.  Atlanta seems to be the best for that.   Lots of Josh Smith hate.  I'm not really sure why Celtics fans are ready to give up a ton to get this guy when the fans that watch him night in and out don't like him.   A fun game and some fun comments. ...
