Taking Bad Schotz:
New York Knicks
Golden State Warriors
The Nets are the turn-around story of the season in the NBA, but it isn’t like people didn’t see it coming. I for one believed from the start of the season that they would finish with a better record than the Knicks. Analysts expected the Nets to make the playoffs even as a top 4 seed. Then the Nets got off to a great start, and Coach Avery Johnson won NBA Coach of the Month for November. The Nets then slid back to .500 and Johnson was fired, but since PJ Carlesimo took over the team the Nets have become the team that analysts thought they would be at the beginning of the year. On the surface it seems like the Nets biggest change is that they moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn over the summer. Another big change, they got new jerseys designed by minority (although often thought to be majority by everyone) owner Jay-Z.
But there are so many more changes that go much deeper than simply a new name, a new building, and a new look. The roster this year has just six players who finished la...

Nets guard C.J. Watson was warned by the NBA for flopping Thursday for a play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s win at Minnesota. The play was called an offensive foul on J.J. Barea, but after the game Watson admitted that he did indeed flop, giving Barea “a taste of his own medicine,” and only hoped that he wouldn’t get fined by the league. Well, luckily...
Deron Williams left Friday night's game with a left quad contusion and didn't return.

Seems Brook Lopez is surprised no one on the Nets made the All-Star team…should he be?
Kris Humphries is determined to prove to the world that Kim Kardashian duped him into marrying her. That the whole point in her actions was publicity.

A source told RadarOnline.com that Kris is concerned about being able to marry in a church...
It seems for the past few months, Brooklyn Nets big man Kris Humphries has been trolling with his estranged wife Kim Kardashian in their divorce battle. Kardashian tried another desperate move recently, as Radar Online reports that she offered Humphries $10 million to settle the divorce.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Wins have become so commonplace with the Brooklyn Nets that they have taken to grading them for their quality. Wednesday? From the sounds of it, Brooklyn's 91-83 victory at Target Center over an injury-ravaged, slumping Timberwolves squad sounded like it deserved a C, C-plus, tops. For example: "We found a way to win in a building which has been a nightmare...

Kardashian tried to bribe him with $10 million, but he said no.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Wednesday at Target Center featured a game between two teams headed in very different directions. The Brooklyn Nets continued to ride the P.J. Carlesimo train. The Timberwolves continued to flounder in the face of injuries.
