  • First thing, Nets: Hire Bernard King. He's FROM Brooklyn. Second, Make it mandatory for your players to REMAIN in Brooklyn until training camp for 2013-14 starts, instead of going back to their sleepy lil digs down south or on the west coast or whatever. Third, work out these twinkies in black & white uni's with some real ballplayers from the block! Bring em to Bed Stuy, to Coney Island, make 'em play some Brook-lyn Ball, man! Shirts n skins! Put them on the court in the projects, make'em play some big city basketball...give 'em what Joakin Noah's already got! Real NYC swagg, man! Maybe then we won't all be embarrassed next year. Let em know who they're really playing for, real city folks who appreciate real city b-ball! Keep the team in Brooklyn, make em go to summer school !
