    Newly acquired NBA basketball player Hansbrough goes up for a slam dunk during a photo shoot  for the Toronto Raptors in Toronto

  4. Report: Wizards interested in Nuggets’ Andre Miller, but a trade is difficult

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It’s always about the money. As we near the trade deadline remember that: It is always about the money. The Washington Wizards could argue they are the third best team in the East. It’s a dubious honor this season and the title seems to change hands weekly between the Wizards, Raptors and Nets, but all…

  5. With Brooklyn winning going small, could they look to move Brook Lopez?

    Feb 4, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Around Christmas, it looked like we could leave the Brooklyn Nets for dead. By the time they lost to San Antonio on New Year’s Eve, the Nets were 10-21 and without Brook Lopez, their star center, for the rest of the season due to another foot surgery. That injury forced Brooklyn to go small —…

The Philippines were…

  7. Nets’ Andray Blatche goes to the Euro-step against Raptors (VIDEO)

    Jan 27, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    An entertaining part of some of the Nets’ recent blowout victories has been the late-game offensive freedom afforded to reserve big man Andray Blatche. Blatche has some embarrassing moments forever archived on YouTube, but he’s developed offensively to the point where he has some skills at the ready whenever the opportunity may present itself. On…

    Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons  v Indiana Pacers

    Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin.

    NBA: Pelicans v Mavericks

    To them this is more than a business — Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki are friends. Technically they are boss and employee, but neither sees it that way. “I kick his ass whenever I’ve wanted to,” Cuban said last week, joking around about his friend the way you ride yours. “It’s kind of like we…

    NEW YORK – The last time the Nets faced the Knicks, they were without Deron Williams and Paul Pierce due to injury, and a fully healthy New York squad thumped Brooklyn back on Dec. 5 at Barclays by a 30-point margin.

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    The Heat may have been missing three starters in their game at Brooklyn on Friday, but they still have the best player out there in LeBron James.

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

  14. Knicks and Nets might not remain so mockable for long, so enjoy it while you can

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks and Nets as engaged in a thrilling competition: Which team is the biggest laughingstocks in the NBA? Both can lay claim. They have oversized payrolls, cartoonish owners, coaches on the hot seat and underwhelming stars. The Knicks have seen Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin feud, and the Nets have matched with Jason…

    Nov 28, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    mason plumlee nets

    The Nets erased all of a 27-point deficit before ultimately falling to the Lakers on Wednesday, and that doesn’t happen without converting at least a few significant highlight-level plays. This acrobatic finish by Mason Plumlee was one of them that qualified. Andray Blatche fired the pass to Plumlee inside, who elevated with his back to…

  16. Lopez, Williams, Terry, Kirilenko all out again for Nets Friday

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    There are a lot of things that need to get turned around for 3-8 Brooklyn. On the offensive end of the court they need Deron Williams and Brook Lopez to take charge and make everyone else a role player. On the defensive end they need to be more cohesive, stop fouling and be stronger on…

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  18. Sam Cassell doesn’t like seeing guys fined for the Sam Cassell dance

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Sam cassell

    It’s been called the big balls dance among other things, but we associate it with Sam Cassell — you hit a big shot, a dagger, and as you come back up the court you drop your hands down like you are cupping some extra large… um… cajones. It’s a popular move, something that makes Cassell…

  19. Bucks’ Caron Butler fined $15,000 for “obscene gesture” against Boston

    Avery Bradley, Caron Butler

    As the Bucks were knocking off the Celtics last Friday night, Caron Butler celebrated a big bucket with the “Sam Cassell big balls dance.” The league doesn’t like that gesture and is cracking down — Butler was fined $15,000 by the league Wednesday for the dance. He’s not the first, Andray Blatche of the Nets…

  20. Nicolas Batum apologetic after getting triple-double by launching last-second shot

    Nov 3, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Nicolas Batum

    Nicolas Batum recorded the first triple-double of the NBA season on Saturday, finishing with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in the Blazers’ win over the Spurs. The problem, at least in Batum’s eyes, was the way in which he ultimately achieved this statistical feat. The game’s outcome had firmly been decided, with Portland…

  22. Kevin Garnett demanded Nets not trade Reggie Evans

    Oct 15, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Reggie Evans

    Remember back in July how during the surprisingly public discussions of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce getting traded to Brooklyn, Reggie Evans was in the deal and headed to Boston then suddenly he wasn’t? It seemed an odd sticking point at the time. Now we know what happened — Kevin Garnett demanded the Nets keep…

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    Mirza Teletovic, Andray Blatche

    The Nets could be paying more than $189 million for players next season, and obviously, such a payroll comes with expectations. And expectations come with pressure. Brooklyn needed overtime to the Wizards and then lost by 11 to the Pistons on Saturday, Obviously, those are just preseason games, but it’s possible to see how a…

    Oct 10, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    harrington blatche

    It’s a wily defensive tactic used by veteran players defending the post, and one that was made famous by Rick Mahorn while playing for the Bad Boys era Pistons in the mid-late 80s: Pulling the Chair. It works like this — a post defender places pressure on the offensive player once he gets the ball…

    Oct 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Andray Blatche has had a mini-resurgence of his career since being amnestied by the Wizards and playing a meaningful role with the Nets last season. Blatche wasn’t known as being the brightest of players, and along with JaVale McGee gave the Wizards a boneheaded duo that was responsible for more nonsense on the court than…
