Nets shooting guard Anthony Morrow paid tribute to former Nets star Drazen Petrovic by wearing the late NBA player’s jersey at the Three-Point Contest Saturday.
Morrow said he had the move planned for a while. “I instantly thought, ‘If I get chosen, I’m going to wear his jersey,’” Morrow said this weekend.

As I watched the Nets get pummeled by the Orlando Magic last night. I began to notice that a lot of Nets fans we’rent concerned with the game happening before them, they we’re thinking of next season. Many signs showed their affection for the All-Star center, who was destroying their team on the court…Dwight Howard!
“Superman” was caught right smack in the middle of another...
So much awesome defense in this video. Dwight Howard swats Brook Lopez's shot and tries to start a fast break, but Deron Williams picks off D12's pass and takes it in for a two-handed jam. It wasn't enough to win the night; the Magic topped the Nets, 108-91.
Williams finished with 23 points (8-18 FG and 3-3 FT), four 3-pointers, six rebounds, eight assists, two...

Sudden New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin was brought back to reality when New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams took him to school in a recent contest at Madison Square Garden.
Dwight Howard fouled Brook Lopez on the first play of the game. When the got the ball in the post next, he brushed aside Lopez and Deron Williams beneath the basket and rose up for a powerful dunk.
And with that, the blue paint was opened and the Magic had free reign throughout the evening.
Dwight Howard scored 20 points on 9-for-13 shooting and grabbed 17 rebounds, including seven...

ORLANDO, Fla. — The first two times he touched the ball in the Rising Stars Challenge last night, Nets rookie MarShon Brooks did something that was not only unnatural for him, it was in direct contrast to orders from Nets All-Star teammate Deron Williams: He passed. “He’s getting fined if...
