TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets

Not only did they change locations, jerseys, and color schemes, but they also overhauled their roster and appear ready to compete for a top playoff spot. All the changes are a relief for All-Star point guard Deron Williams, who was so frustrated with the team’s struggles last season he had to be called out by coach Avery Johnson for his behavior. Johnson didn’t like the negative body language Williams displayed on the court during the Nets’ 22-44 showing last season which tied them for the fifth-worst record in the league.

Joe Johnson's new role with the Nets

Joe Johnson is about to step into a whole new world. He has left Atlanta for the bright lights of Brooklyn. He is part of a huge movement by a franchise that has been stuck in the cellar for a long time.

Nets ready to get going on Brooklyn era

MarShon Brooks stood wearing his brand-new uniform in front of a green screen on the Brooklyn Nets' practice court, screwing up his face and making kissy lips at the camera. He stopped, then puckered up again for another take that will eventually introduce the ''Kiss Cam'' at the Barclays Center. It was a fitting visual for a day the Nets formally kicked off...

Mark Cuban Buys Nets.com To Call Out Mikhail Prokhorov?

Mark Cuban Buys Nets.com Domain, Messes With Prokhorov

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made his billions through an internet business so it's fair to say that the man knows a little about the online world. Apparently, Mikhail Prokhorov, the New Jersey Brooklyn Nets' owner, (or at least the team's staff) is not as well-versed in the web.  In a solid bit of equal parts internet trolling and amusing, Cuban purchased...
