His only dunk attempt of the season was annihilated by Blake Griffin, where he just so happened to also sprain his wrist after plummeting in

The Brooklyn Nets have been incredibly active in trade talks but have not been able to acquire anyone with their not-so-glamorous package of Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a draft pick. They wanted Dwight, then they wanted Josh Smith, and now they are trying to acquire a player GM Billy King wanted last season, Turkish stud Ersan Ilyasova. According to ESPNs Marc Stein:
The Nets are offering Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first round pick for Paul Pierce.

1: Joe cool
Joe Johnson has the reputation of being an isolation player. That is just what he has always done. You give him the ball and he scores. It is not always efficient and it is not always pretty. His trade to Brooklyn has been a mixed bag so far. He has not quite delivered...
