The Nets are in another one of their slumps, the third of the season (the other two both in December). Since winning four in a row around the All-Star Break they have lost four out of five and done so in spectacular fashion.
Four main issues have killed the Nets this year.
1) Turnovers. Nets throw the ball all over the court. D-Will is doing it a lot, but he’s the point guard who has the ball all the time anyway, so I can excuse it some (your NBA turnover leaders are Holiday, Rondo, Wall, Harden, Kobe, Westbrook, Durant and Irving; what does that say?). Especially lately he has been incredibly sloppy. With a chance to tie against the Grizzlies last week he threw the ball away with 10 seconds left. But as for the others, what excuse do Reggie Evans and Gerald Wallace have? It is maddening to watch the games because those two in particular are notorious at dumb turnovers. Nets had 18 turnovers against the Grizzlies, 20 against the Mavericks, and 21 against the Bulls. In fact, the Nets...

Fans of the Brooklyn Nets and Deron Williams were probably not happy that he did not make the All Star game, but it is has turned out to be a godsend so far, as he has exploded out of the All-Star break, looking like the old Deron Williams for the first time in a long time. It looks like all he needed was a break and the five days off, coupled with the recent...
Tornike Shengelia has D-League averages of 26.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.7 steals per game on 57.7% shooting from the field.
The Brooklyn Nets aren't quite an expansion team, but the team's move to one of the five boroughs has absolutely been treated like a new beginning for the franchise. The team debuted a new logo with new uniforms and a new big three to in theory compete for an NBA title. While it's been a much better season for the Nets than recent memory (they've already equaled...
San Antonio Spurs assistant coach, Ime Udoka is living the dream. After spending a few years in the NBA, Udoka made the transition to the other side of the bench in a coaching role with his old team. Udoka also happens to be in a relationship with actress Nia Long. A woman who is absolutely several jocks celebrity upgrade dream girl. Even at 41 years old.

Vince started out cold last night, but picked it up as the game progressed
After a pair of tough losses to the Grizzlies and Rockets earlier this week, the Nets were able to bounce back and take down the lowly Hornets down in New Orleans on Tuesday. Looking to build off the momentum from that win, Brooklyn headed home to Barclays Center to face the Dallas Mavericks...
Joakim Noah won the battle of Eastern Conference All-Star centers, edging out Brook Lopez
Hey, it's a turnover! Over here! Over there! Ok, enough for my children's book-like recap of whatever the hell happened tonight in Chicago. The Nets got simply punked tonight by a Bulls team missing it's star player (Derrick Rose) and a key bench defender/jack...
If ultimately called upon, Mirza Teletovic made it clear that he's ready for a larger role.
