Transition period begins for Nets overseas import Bogdanovic

The Nets may have a team full of big names familiar to NBA fans, but perhaps the most intriguing player on the roster is one few people here ever have seen play. That would be Bojan Bogdanovic, the 6-foot-8 swingman who the Nets took with the first pick of the second round in 2011 — only for him to spend the next three years playing for Fenerbahce Ulker, one of Europe’s top...

A year ago, the Nets entered training camp with plenty of championship talk surrounding the franchise after hiring Jason Kidd as coach and acquiring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Andrei Kirilenko during the offseason.

Deron Williams and Kobe Bryant engage in an unlikely war of words

It is no secret Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets has not been all that great in the past few seasons. He was consistently one of the few best point guards in the NBA throughout his time in Utah, and after a decent start with New Jersey/Brooklyn, injuries have claimed a lot of his productivity. So it is imperative that the 2014-15 season is a good one for Deron, who has to prove...

NBA GMs on the hot seat

When a general manager’s job is believed to be in jeopardy, it can be a moment of dramatic decisions and wildly diverging forks in the road for an NBA franchise. Picture this: let’s say that the team’s 12th man believes that his job is in jeopardy. Suddenly, that 12th man is very uninterested in whether his team wins or loses—instead, he is totally interested in putting...

Nets Deron Williams responds to Kobe Bryant shooting critique

Deron Williams: Last year 'behind us'

Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins is confident that Deron Williams will bounce back in 2014-15 following back-to-back seasons in which the three-time All-Star point guard was plagued by ankle injuries and struggled on the court as a result.

Brooklyn Nets hope Lionel Hollins is the finally “the right voice” to lead the team

  During the NBA offseason, the Brooklyn Nets were blindsided by Jason Kidd’s brazen ploy for more power within the organization; a move that resulted in him accepting a head coaching position with the Milwaukee Bucks.  One year after the Nets made a huge media splash by hiring the neophyte, Kidd’s sudden departure returned the Nets to where they were a year ago, without a...

Garnett admits he thought about retirement

If Kevin Garnett had decided to retire after last season, few would have been shocked to hear the news. After the worst season of his career and a disappointing playoff elimination for the Brooklyn Nets, it would have been understandable for Garnett to want to throw in the towel, especially after longtime teammate Paul Pierce chose to depart for the Washington Wizards in his free...
