I have a sinking suspicion that most of you didn't watch last night's New Orleans Hornets/New Jersey Nets affair.

Since you didn't, you missed this impressive double alley-oop from Deron Williams to Gerald Green to Kris Humphries:

Deron Williams dunk over Tristian Thompson

Nets guard Deron Williams has about a month left in his Nets uniform. No playoffs, probably not returning to the team next season but, you’ll have the memories. Like this dunk from Monday night’s Nets vs. Cavs game over Tristian Thompson. Gerald Green isn’t the only one who can make the highlight reel. Oh, the [...]

Williams says he won't opt-in for next season

The free agent class of 2012 has a new number one guy and yes, it's still a superstar.  Friday morning Deron Williams told reporters, including Stefan Bondy with the New York Daily News that he would be hitting the open market this offseason.

Mavs' looking to reel in 'big fish'

DALLAS -- There are lazy assumptions being made regarding the Dallas Mavericks and their cap. There is inaccurate information being issued regarding the money Deron Williams can be paid if he joins the Mavs in the Summer of 2012.

Nets Finish Third Quarter On Highest Of High Notes, But Lose To Hornets Despite Gerald Green’s Clutchness

No one connected on any buzzer-beating half-court heaves, but I’d argue that what the New Jersey Nets accomplished in the closing moments of the third quarter in their eventual loss to the Hornets tops a lucky shot. In his first game as a Net, Gerald Wallace got involved on both ends of the floor during a 35-second sequence of events that saw the home team expand their lead from...

Kyrie Irving Crosses Gerald Wallace, Gerald Green, And Deron Williams On Consecutive Possessions

Once again, Kyrie Irving did it in the fourth quarter for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  As the Cavs outlasted the Nets in an eventual 105-100 victory, your ’11/12 Rookie of the Year scored 14 of his 26 in the final stanza, including his team’s last six, the shot that made it a two-possession game, etc.  Neither of Kyrie’s fourth-quarter plays that impressed me most resulted...

Ten Things That Happened In Friday Night’s Nets Game

I don’t even feel any shame in saying that Gerald Green has become one of my favorite players to watch these days.  He’s lighting it up in New Jersey!  He posted another double-figure half on Friday night, and threw down a pretty nice alley-oop dunk.  As did Glen Davis.  Wait, what? That’s correct.  Let me assure you that this was one of the most unusual NBA games I...

Report: No fraud for Kardashian, Humphries

Both Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are said to be willing to officially end their short marriage with an annulment rather than a divorce, but only if the other admits to fraud, TMZ reported Saturday.

Cavaliers-Nets Preview

Kyrie Irving is returning to the state where he starred in high school. Deron Williams will be waiting for him.

Tristan Thompson scored a career high 27 points and Kyrie Irving had 26 points (14 of them in the 4th quarter) as the Cavaliers came away with a nice win in New Jersey. The Cavaliers got off to a hot start as Tristan Thompson was active in the post and was punishing the Brook Lopez-less Nets with dunk after dunk. The Cavs...
