The Brooklyn Nets had a lot of hype surrounding them coming into this season, and unlike their New York counterpart Knicks, they have not quite lived up to it. With a deep roster and star power, the Nets were expected to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Their frustrations were summed up by swing man Gerald Wallace, who called out his teammates for their complacency amongst a bad streak. Always enjoy talking to Gerald because he gets it. He has no problem saying what’s on his mind & he brought the heat during a postgame chat — Rod Boone (@rodboone) December 27, 2012 Gerald: “Guys are content with the situation we are in & I’m f—— pissed off about us losing, especially losing the way we are losing.” — Rod Boone (@rodboone) December 27, 2012 This is coming off of a game where the Nets looked very bad against another struggling team, the Boston Celtics, on Christmas day. It is still early in the season, but not early enough where bad losses can just be shrugged off. The Nets need to live up to their expectations. The time is now, and “Crash” knows it. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Gerald Wallace Calls Out His Teammates appeared first on Pass The Pill.

“We’re a way better team than what our record is,” Gerald Wallace said. “I’m [bleeping ticked] off about us losing, and especially the way we’re...
It was all good just a month ago. The Brooklyn Nets who came into this season with high hopes and something of a nice start have fired Avery Johnson.
The foundation of the team has publicly started to crack over the past two weeks as All-Star Deron Williams expressed doubts about Johnson’s system.
Once that happened the Nets went from being a hot team on a cold streak to being...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Avery Johnson was hired by the New Jersey Nets as head coach on June 15, 2010, he thought he would be given some time to see the franchise get through a tough transitional period. "Under the circumstances, I knew that for the first two years we were going to get beat up pretty bad, then it would take some time to build a championship team,"...
Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
When news broke of the Brooklyn Nets firing Avery Johnson, I immediately knew that Phil Jackson’s name would come up in the discussion. Phil has the bug to coach again – and stick it to Jim Buss, – the Nets have a talented team and an owner with deep pockets. Not Jay Z silly, the [...]

For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...
