When a fan tunes into a Brooklyn Nets home game on TV, the Nets want them to recognize the venue right away. The stark, colorless palette and herringbone paneling on the hardwood floor will be the most obvious hints that the game in question is being broadcast in high-definition from the Barclays Center, not some passé, nondescript old barn that had ample parking but no "weathered steel" exterior. In case those clues are not quite enough, the Nets have another, more subtle way to tip off fans. The Barclays Center will have not one, but two distinct lighting systems for basketball -- one for the Nets and one for everyone else, according to The Wall Street Journal. "The one for everyone else is a metal-halide system, which is the sort of bright, white lighting used at most sports arenas," the Journal's Scott Cacciola writes. Those lights "will be used when Barclays is host to college basketball -- and that includes Kentucky's game against Maryland ...

As part of my NBA preseason rankings I will be ranking the best players by position in each division. Here’s the Atlantic division.PG Rajon Rondo- Boston Celtics- 11.9 pts. 11.7 ast.

We saw Deron Williams call out his teammates for not battling and fighting through adversity during a miserable losing season. This is exactly what you want to see out of your star player; inspiring his teammates, and setting an example of toughness. Well, he’s not stopping there.
It’s only the preseason, but Deron Williams isn’t going to go off quietly if he’s insulted....

Tweet Deron Williams is the new golden boy of Brooklyn after re-signing a max contract with the Nets over the summer. Apparently Washington Wizards reserve A.J. Price wanted to take a shot at DWill, issuing a hard foul on Williams in the final minutes of their preseason game Monday evening, the first ever at the [...]
It was bound to happen. The former “team captain” for the Wizards, who mentioned before the game that he didn’t receive “loyalty” from the Wizards regarding his “DNP- Conditioning” status, managed to kind of ball out last night for the Brooklyn Nets in their first game at the Barclays Center.
Andray Blatche managed to pull out 16 points and eight rebounds in just 23...
