In what should be considered a successful inaugural season for the Brooklyn Nets, it is a pretty popular consensus that the sophomore season for MarShon Brooks has come as a disappointment. His rookie season was full of promise and potential, specifically on the offensive end, and it was a given that Brooks’ minutes would be minimized by the addition of Joe Johnson. However, most Net fans were hoping Brooks’s game would mature, especially on the defensive end. Maturity questions won’t be helped when Brooks makes comments like saying the coaching staff doesn’t trust him, like he did today. Here are his comments via ESPNNewYork.com: “I don’t think they [trust me] because I haven’t really played against any good teams,” Brooks told ESPNNewYork.com after scoring 12 points in a 106-101 victory over the Washington Wizards on Monday night at Barclays Center. The trust issues have no origin, according to the second-year guard out of Providence. Here was his answer when asked if there was any reason for the issue: “I have no clue,” Brooks said. “I just roll with the punches and have to be ready for whatever happens.” Trust is earned, MarShon, and it is no coincidence that Brooks hasn’t gotten much of a chance under either coach the Nets have had this season. We have seen other players given their chance to earn minutes, like fan favorite Mirza Teletovic. Former coach Avery Johnson was very hard on Brooks, and now interim coach PJ Carlisemo has seemingly followed trend. It is my belief that Brooks’ deficiencies on the defensive end are at the root of his lack of minutes, and it really shouldn’t be minimized how much the addition of Joe Johnson factors in as well. Johnson seems to be the player that Carlisemo trusts most on the floor, and only takes him out of the game when absolutely necessary. The biggest issue for Brooks is that he may never truly grow defensively, and Johnson is going to be on this team for years to come, which leads you to this question: Will Brooks be on this roster at the beginning of next season?

  • Great job of taking an article out of context to feed your insecurities by coming across as so sanctimonious. Why don't you man up and

    a. admit you did not read the whole article

    or

    b. admit that you are a douche who wants to create an issue where there is none?

    You call this reporting? I suppose by Fox standards it would be. Go cover golf, that is more up your alley
