The Awesome Boston:
A.B. Last October, Bleacher Report posted an article about Busted Coverage‘s theory that Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, was trolling the Brooklyn Nets by purchasing the domain nets.com. If you read each article, there is talk about Cuban and Brooklyn Nets owner, Mikhail Prokhorov, not liking each other for various reasons. I’ll spare you the details – that’s what the links are for.
In regards to the domain hi jinx, there was never any confirmation that Cuban was behind the prank, but here’s the page that appeared late last year:
Until now, it was assumed that nets.com would stay this way and some troll, Cuban or not, would enjoy owning a coveted-by-a-billionaire NBA team name domain.
However, the recent Paul Pierce & Kevin Garnett trade to the Brooklyn Nets may have changed all that. The Nets rebuilt using Celtics legends and to the mysterious nets.com owner, apparently the site was ready for a facelift as well…

Mark Cuban has committed the Dallas Mavericks to being built around Dirk Nowitzki for as long as he is interested in continuing his career.
"I have no idea," said Cuban. "But I'll talk to Dirk about it. Pretty much whatever he wants. Dirk's got a no-trade deal, so whether it's one year, three years, 20 years, it really doesn't matter. He gets to sign...
Brooklyn Nets: Too Many Cooks In Brooklyn’s Kitchen?
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/HoopStuff….
There is a general rule in sports, that no team can have too much talent, but for the first time in recent NBA history, the Brooklyn Nets may be the exception to the rule. Their starting lineup of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez is, stacked...
Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez expects to be ready for training camp after having surgery on his foot.
According to the New York Post, it was Lopez’s third foot surgery in the past two years.
“I think I was more disappointed than anything,” Lopez said. “I wasn’t concerned. I was disappointed, but it was best to do it when we did it, in the week after the season, to give...
Delonte West has been participating in workouts in Las Vegas in hopes of landing a free agent deal.
West "has been impressive" in the workouts, according to a report.
West did not play last season after playing 44 games with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011-12.
Jerry Stackhouse challenged LeBron James' belief that the NBA players union is "going backwards," saying the opinion of the Miami Heat star is misinformed.
"He's the best player in the game right now and we want the entire league to be involved," Stackhouse said. "But he needs to be informed in speaking on our union business."
Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are done with the Celtics, but Monday, they came through one last time for the green. A horse named ‘The Truth And KG’ after none other than future Hall of Famers and Nets, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, sporting green silks and the No. 5, won a race in Saratoga in a photo finish.
First year Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd is reportedly going to have his No. 5 jersey retired by the same franchise.
Marshon Brooks is definitely one of the more intriguing pieces of last month’s franchise changing trade with the Brooklyn Nets. Originally drafted by Boston, Brooks averaged a respectable 12.6 ppg over 56 contests during the 2011-12 season-his rookie year. However his time on the hardwood was lessened drastically last season, and he only started 2 games for the Nets as opposed...
