Found January 10, 2014 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
Later tonight, the Brooklyn Nets/Miami Heat game will be the first NBA game in a long time where players have nicknames on the back of the jerseys. As some of the rest of the Nets nickname jerseys have trickled out over the Interwebs, Brooklyn guard Tyshawn Taylor decided to try and get some more Instagram followers with his nickname: "@tee_y " — gunna be on the back of my jersey tonight — tyshawn taylor (@tyshawntaylor) January 10, 2014 Currently, Taylor’s Instagram account has 31,360 followers and I think (unless he doesn’t play), he’ll get some more later tonight. *** Taylor’s nickname jersey [Nets Daily] Tyshawn Taylor image courtesy of Getty Images

A new year, and for the Brooklyn Nets and Jason Kidd, a resurgence

Jason Kidd hasn't worn a tie yet in 2014, and the Nets haven't lost a game either. Correlation or causation?

Kevin Garnett Compares His Offense To A ‘Booty Call’

Refocused Brooklyn Nets Unbeaten In New Year

Just a few days ago, most of the basketball world had all but written off the Brooklyn Nets. Too many injuries. A core of over-the-hill veterans. A head coach who had no idea what he was doing.
