NBA camps open next week but the rookie hazing and hijinks have already begun. VeteransÂ Deron WilliamsÂ andÂ Reggie EvansÂ played a practical joke on âthe rookâÂ Marshon Brooksâ Â by filling his car with popcorn.Â Apparently, last seasonâs shortened number of 66 games compared to the regular 82 qualifies Brooks as a rookie still.
According toÂ NetsDaily:

Being a rookie in the NBA is not always a dream come true. First-year players need to put up with a lot of nonsense, from lugging around bags for veterans to making late-night Taco Bell runs for a star with the munchies.
The hazing is an unfortunate cross rookies must bear without complaint, but at least it is only for one year. Unless, of course, you are MarShon Brooks.
It has become evident that the Brooklyn Nets are on a mission to create a persona starkly different from the one they had while playing in New Jersey. There are the new black and white jerseys, the rustic Barclays Center, and the thought by some that the franchise is cool. Which was all done not by accident.
But all of those changes werenât apparently enough for the Nets. They...
Before I start this 2012-2013 season preview for the Brooklyn Nets, I feel the need to give you my background in doing so.
Growing up in Brooklyn, basketball really wasnât my sport. I loved my Yankees, and I loved my Giants. However, it was about 2001 when basketball intercepted my sports soul, and I was at an impasse.
You see, I hate being like everyone else; I have this knack...
Bringing a major sports franchise back to Brooklyn makes Jay-Z feel like he's living the American dream.
The 43-year-old music mogul and entrepreneur says when he was a kid growing up in Brooklyn, he pretended on the basketball court to hit the winning shot at the buzzer. He never dreamed he'd own a basketball team. Now Jay is part owner of the Brooklyn Nets and instrumental...
The other day, the above image of the Brooklyn Nets dancers, the Brooklynettes, hit the webs and two things occurred to me. First, the Brooklynettes is such an awesome name for their dancers and I will flick a booger at anyone who disagrees. Second, big whoop, weâve known what their uniforms look like for two months now. But I guess this image showed off a little more of how edgy...
We love talking obesity T..
Earlier this week,Â 50 local kids in Brooklyn spent the day playing basketball, doing sprints and working on their fitness with NBA power forward and reality television star Kris Humphries. âIâve had a long partnership with the YMCA where Iâm from in Minnesota, and coming out to Brooklyn, I was excited to get involved with the community and childhood...
Recall back in June, the Brooklynettes debuted their new uniforms. Well, they've added a few costume changes just in time for the Halloween season.
We've got everything a cheerleader needs....

Consider Madison Square Garden on watch.
Luring the Nets from New Jersey was only Step 1 in Brooklyn's metamorphosis into an entertainment hot spot. Next up for the borough, a ruthless bid in stealing the spotlight and the stars from MSG, New Jersey's Prudential Center, and any other venue that books boldface names in music and sports.
There's a new kid in town, folks...

1. What Significant Moves were made during the off-season? Brand identity. No longer can the Nets be considered âlosersâ to objective basketball fans. To New York Knicks fans, however...
The Brooklyn Nets new home Barclays center opened over the weekend, and the âBrooklynettesâ debut their new street-inspired uniforms. Complete with knee-boots, fingerless gloves, and girl group attitude. The uniforms are designed by renown costume designer David Dalrymple whose designed costumes for Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears.
âThe uniforms are feminine andâ...
Itâs sort of an inmate/dominatrix crossoverâŚ..Iâm not sure.
But I think I like it. What do you all think?
Former San Antonio Spurs player Ime Udoka will be back in the silver and black this coming season, though he wonât be dawning the typical Spurs jersey fans are accustomed to seeing him wear. Instead heâll most likely be wearing a Spurs polo or some sort of business suit.
In an entertaining piece by Ken Rodriguez for Spurs.com, Rodriguez explains how Udoka made the decision...
