The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their new basketball court this week and they're taking a page out of Boston's playbook with a herringbone pattern. Here's the Nets' CEO, Brett Yormark, on the court design:
"The vision all along was to have something that was truly identifiable and unique and when people turned on their TVs at home, know they were in Brooklyn," Yormark said. "When you turn on the TV and you turn on a Celtics game and you look at that court, it's a parquet that has become very recognizable. We want this to be the same — it's our version of the parquet. I think it truly delivered against all of our expectations."
I like that the Nets are at least coming up with a pattern that is somewhat original, unlike the Orlando Magic that chose to use parquet just like the Celtics. I agree with the Ball Don't Lie author that I'm surprised that the Nets and their billionaire owner didn't go for a bigger scoreboard to give the are...

The Celtics have released a photo on instagram of the new plates that will go on the Celtics lockers this season. The season is getting closer and closer. I'm getting more and more excited for it to start. A neat feature of the locker plates is that they feature the names of all the Celtics that wore the numbers before. I love that they put the former players on the nameplates...
Rajon Rondo appeared on BET's 106 and Park tonight to talk about his career, the future, and interning for GQ during New York Fashion Week. Above is the video for the whole episode, so you have to skip to about 21 minutes into the video to get to Rondo's part.
Below is a 3 minute back-stage interview with Rondo:
The Brooklyn Nets have signed veteran forward Josh Childress.
Nets general manager Billy King announced the signing Thursday. While terms were not disclosed, Childress got a one-year, non-guaranteed contract.
The 29-year-old Childress averaged 2.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 34 games with Phoenix last season. The fourth pick overall in the 2004 draft out of Stanford has career averages...
Everyone, not just Celtics fans, have been concerned about Bill Russell since news of his heart procedure came out. Today, NBA.com posted an interview with the Celtics legend where he addresses the procedure and the state of his health, his Mentors' Golf Challenge, Team USA's performance in London, Ray Allen's departure, Jeremy Lin and much more.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Meanwhile, the player who Barnes would essentially be replacing, Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He’s the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any...
I don't usually post a lot of videos, and now two in a row. But, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, here is Reebok's video catching up to Jason Terry as he lands in Boston with his family and shows us his new home. Every time I hear Jason talk, I get excited. He's so excited to be a Celtic and when he talks about his intensity for the game mixed with KG's...
The top two seeds have advanced again but today’s matchup might be a bit closer than the other two. These two plays by Rajon Rondo were huge at different points during the playoffs, but both were clutch in different ways. Keep in mind on the #14 seed, you’re voting for Rondo’s clutch three-pointer ONLY vs Philly, not the entire compilation. I just didn’t make a new...
