Pics: Deron Williams purchases 15.8 million penthouse in New York

Tweet The dreams money can buy… Last summer point guard Deron Williams inked a max contract extension with the Brooklyn Nets worth about $100 million over five years.

Reggie Evans Has Some (Dumb) Thoughts On LeBron James, Miami Heat

Brooklyn Nets forward and flopper/cheap shot artist extraordinaire Reggie Evans may be a great rebounder, but he’s also one of the NBA’s most annoying players.

LeBron James on Reggie Evans: “We Did Our Number on Him”

Earlier today, Brooklyn Nets flopmaster Reggie Evans decided it was a good idea to take a sharp stick and poke a tiger when he said that the Miami Heat championship wasn’t legit because it occurred during a lockout shortened season. His statements were absurd, but it did get the attention of LeBron James, who after the 105-85 victory said “No one knows what it takes until you’ve...

Joe Johnson Shakes Chris Bosh To The Core With Nasty Crossover

Chris Bosh is most likely feeling the effects from this Joe Johnson crossover even today. On Wednesday night during the Heat and Nets game in Brooklyn Joe Johnson took Chris Bosh off the dribble to a very deep and dark place. Check out the cross-up which sent Bosh flying into teammate Udonis Haslem and looking more lost than a child wondering into the middle of the movie ‘Inception...

Lopez takes Rondo's All-Star spot

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez has been chosen to replace the injured Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Commissioner David Stern on Wednesday selected Lopez, who is averaging 18.6 points and 7.3 rebounds for the second-place Nets.

Nets 93, Bulls 89

Brook Lopez scored 20 points through three quarters, then the Brooklyn Nets turned to their bench to beat the short-handed Chicago Bulls 93-89 on Friday night. Andray Blatche scored all of his 11 points in the fourth quarter and MarShon Brooks had nine of his 13 as the reserves scored the Nets' first 20 points.

Nets no challenge for Heat in East

If there's a case to be made that there's a contender for the Eastern Conference crown other than the Miami Heat, no one has stepped up and made it just yet. But after another Heat demolition of the Nets, this time a 105-85 pounding Wednesday night, it's obvious that Brooklyn no longer has any business engaging in that debate. In their first and only visit to Barclays...

Bosh Caught Actin A Fool

The league has opened their eyes to the flops around the league starting this season.  Reggie Evans (seen in video) is one of the kings of flopping.  So it comes to no surprise that players will take the reputation of Evans and use it against him.  I just never thought that person, being Chris Bosh, would flop while taking a jump shot.  Arguable the worst call of the night (sorry...
