It looks like the Kris Humphries is making his return to reality TV!

NBA TV will chronicle the Brooklyn Nets’ made for TV season in their new city and new arena in a series called “The Association.”  According to the New York Times, the league will make the official announcement tomorrow with the first episode airing on October 16. “The Association” follows a similar format to the popular HBO series “Hard Knocks.”

The Nets, who are partly owned by Jay-Z, are the fourth team featured on “The Association,” following the Los Angeles Lakers (2009-10), the Boston Celtics (2010-11) and the Denver Nuggets (2011-12).

Showtime attempted a similar reality series venture by following the Miami Marlins in Season 2 of the “The Franchise.” Like the Nets, the Marlins were embarking on a new name and a new stadium but the docu-series was canceled after 7-epsidoes. Both the Marlins and MLB Network were in mutual agreement to cut the season prematurely after the Marlins, who were an NL East favorite, had a disastrous season finishing August at 55-66. Here’s

s hoping there is no reality jinx for Brooklyn’s first major sports team since the Dodgers left in 1958!

Nets' Prokhorov reiterates championship timetable

Deron Williams Uses Laughing Gas At The Dentist

Brooklyn Nets star Deron Williams spent some time this offseason chronicling a trip to the dentist office on Instagram.  It appears that Williams is receiving some nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, to ease some pain.  I don’t know if he is pretending to be scared or, like myself, hating every moment sitting in a dentist chair.

Let me start this out by saying as some of you know, I am not the biggest Ernie Grunfeld supporter.

This Wizards roster has gone from seeing Nick Young, JaVale McGee, and Andray Blatche starting day...
