Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
File this under stating the obvious. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov says Kris Humpries has nothing to worry about in the Kanye West vs. The Hump dispute. Contrary to what Ye said in Theraflu (which is now named Way to Cold. ) Jay has no say so in player personnel. “Kris has nothing to worry about,” Prokhorov [...]

When discussing the difficult situation John Wall has had to deal with in Washington, Deron Williams said Wall's Wizards teammates are not "the smartest guys."
After hearing New Jersey Nets fans serenade him with chants of 'Let's Go Heat' and 'MVP'— while he single-handedly scored the final 17 points giving the Miami Heat a 101-98 victory— LeBron James took off his shoes, autographed them and handed them to 7-year old standing courtside after Monday night's game.
It wasn't bad enough that the chants for...
DeShawn Stevenson seldom dribbles. He takes non-three-point shots just about as infrequently (less than one per game). I’m not sure what got into him on the following play, but he actually elected to both. Watch as DeShawn put a stellar behind-the-back crossover/step-back move on Rajon Rondo, leaving a nimble set of ankles in need of a fresh tape job…
Will Smith has been a frequent courtside guest this season at 76′ers games. He and his son, Jaden were spotted Friday night when the Sixers took on the New Jersey Nets.
The final minutes of last night's YES Network broadcast of the Celtics-Nets game were complexing after play-by-play voice Ian Eagle inexplicably spoke (end sentence here?) his complaints to analyst Mike Fratello on-air. Eagle voiced his frustrations with the former coach, who is in his last few weeks with the New Jersey Nets. In other words, Eagle went the public stoning...
Dwayne Schintzius— the former-New Jersey Nets center— died Sunday from complications from a rare form of leukemia.
Considered the first great big man at the University of Florida, Schintzius never lived up to his potential after college. He went on to play for six NBA teams in a nine year professional career. He was drafted out of Florida in the first round of the 1990 draft...
Even though the Nets are tanking their fans still were cheering for the win. But they also can't wait to get out of New Jersey. Guess I can't blame them. But the grass isn't always greener on the other side so moving to Brooklyn won't automatically fix their problems either. Happy to see that Gerald seems to have found a home and matured. I hope he sticks...
The New Jersey Nets hung around in the first half of this game but the second half was all Celtics as they pulled away in the 3rd quarter and pulled out a 94-82 victory in what will probably be the last time the Celtics play in the state of New Jersey. The Celtics outscored the [...]
Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams were not in uniform for Monday's game between the teams due to injuries.
Wade was given the night off to rest his right ankle, which has given him problems throughout the season. The Heat are 11-1 this year without Wade in the starting lineup.
Williams is nursing a right calf injury, suffered Sunday...

The final official hurdle for the Nets' move to Brooklyn was cleared Friday, when the NBA's Board of Governors unanimously approved the team's relocation across the Hudson River to the Barclays Center, where the team will begin play this fall.
"We voted to formally approve the move, and the team name, which will be the Brooklyn Nets," NBA commissioner David...
