dm_130429_nba_news_jason_collins_granderson

From the time I turned on the NBA‘s doubleheader on Sunday to the moment that I hit snooze on NBATV, the name ‘Jason Collins‘ had been hammered into my brain with the force of fifty LeBron James dunks. It was to the point where, sadly, I now cannot wait for his ten-day contract to expire. Please, read...

Identity Crisis: Winning in the NBA is simple

  What’s the key to winning in the NBA? Of course, you need talent…any coach will tell you that. But it’s not a pick-up game, there’s more to being a GM than just choosing a bunch of freaks for your squad. There has to be a clear team identity. This is the synthesis of a coaching staff’s philosophy and a roster’s...

Nets add Alan Anderson, future playoff star?

  As NBA free agency slows to ‘molasses mode’, the salary cap-busting Brooklyn Nets pulled off an absolute steal today. The team has signed swingman Alan Anderson to a two-year deal (according to Yahoo Sports). He’s the kind of addition that pays off in April, May, and (hopefully) June.   Many fans remember Anderson as...

Source: Nets adding Bojan Bogdanovic

  Sources tell me that the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to terms with 2011 draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic on a free agent contract for the next three seasons. As I said a few weeks ago, the rumors of him staying in Europe were false.   The 6’8″ Croatian, who was raised in Bosnia, lit up the Turkish League the past two seasons....

No Nets: Kyle Korver staying in Atlanta

  One of the first rumors to break just after midnight on July 1st was Kyle Korver possibly headed to the Nets to play with former teammate Deron Williams. One rival GM even said:”Brooklyn is in the bag.”   Well, obviously the money wasn’t to Kyle’s liking.   ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that Korver is staying with the Atlanta...

Andray Blatche re-signs, will learn from ‘KG’

  Peter Vecsey was the first to report that the Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement with Andray Blatche to re-sign the bigman. The free agent center quickly canceled meetings with the Clippers and Warriors today, leading to this report.   The best possible move for Blatche’s career is to play with Kevin Garnett, learning from the...

Redemption: Keith Bogans finally gets paid

  If you’re a lifelong BlogNBAsketball fan then you’ll know the story of Keith Bogans. I have shed light in the past on this man and his history of being pooped on by numerous franchises. He’s the example of how the NBA doesn’t take care of its veterans, as they get recycled like spare parts across the league.   Two...

  Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics are having “serious discussions” about a trade involving Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

No Kidd: Nets-hiring-Jason is a joke

  The story of the week, outside of the NBA Finals, has been the Brooklyn Nets and Jason Kidd dancing around the head coaching vacancy. Reports now are that the two sides are working on finalizing a deal. I couldn’t think of a worse move to make…for either side.   First of all, nobody goes from straight from...

Once and for all, Noah is better than Lopez

  Some of my Twitter followers may remember a serious debate I had with many around midseason regarding two centers out East. The topic was Brook Lopez getting an All-Star nod ahead of Joakim Noah. I argued that the Bulls center, with all his defense and rebounding, is a better overall player. Lopez, while being...
