  1. Kevin Garnett explains Joe Johnson’s nickname: ‘Joe Jesus’

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Kevin Garnett used to play with someone nicknamed Jesus Shuttlesworth, but Garnett has tried to erase Ray Allen from his life. Now, Garnett is playing with a new teammate he calls Jesus: Joe Johnson. “He might not be there when you call on him, but he’s there when you need him,” Garnett said in the…

  2. Nets get $5.25 million disabled player exception approved for injured Brook Lopez

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been well-documented that the Nets will have the league’s highest payroll this season when including luxury tax costs, a bill that will total in the neighborhood of $180 million when all is said and done. The league offered Brooklyn a small amount of relief on Tuesday, granting the Nets a disabled payer exception worth…

  3. Keith Bogans frustrated by lack of playing time this season with Celtics

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:21 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans may not be a household name in the NBA, but in recent years he’s become a serviceable veteran that a team could trust on the floor for around 19 minutes per contest. Bogans appeared in 74 games for the Nets a season ago, and started in 23 of them. He was included in…

  4. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  5. Report: Kidd frustrated, calls out Nets; Garnett backs him

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Shocking news, the Brooklyn Nets have a dysfunctional locker room. I’m not going to spend a lot of time kicking this dead horse, we’ve done that plenty in these parts, but we have to pass along this report. After the Bulls thumped the Nets on Christmas Day in front of a national television audience, Jason…

  6. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  7. Deron Williams: Brooklyn Nets’ season ‘a nightmare’

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    When he traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge explained how he got enough assets to make the deal worthwhile to Boston. Ainge, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI: “Brooklyn showed a great deal of interest in putting the ‘Dream Team’ together, with expense…

  8. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

  9. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  10. Lessons of Celtics 2007 draft taught Suns GM not to tank for picks

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    While from the outside it looked like the Suns were going bad to get good this season, they never saw it that way. Young new GM Ryan McDonough traded for Eric Bledsoe and believed in the Goran Dragic/Bledsoe backcourt when few did. He was right. More than that he stockpiled picks and also went and…

  11. Jason Kidd says Nets “getting very close to just accepting losing”

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v. Philadelphia 76ers

    First it was Mike D’Antoni lashing out at Lakers fans, then Sacramento’s Mike Malone smacking his team around, now Jason Kidd doing the same with the Nets. Apparently NBA coaches took the Festivus “Airing of Grievances” part very seriously. Kidd was frustrated after his team played a close first half then just got blown out…

  12. The other side of Kevin Love’s outlet passes, where Calvin Johnson comparisons make sense

    Dec 22, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Kevin Love’s outlet passes are a thing of beauty to any basketball lover. I could watch the above video over and over. Actually, while embedding it into this post, I did. Outlet passes are an overlooked skill, and Love is the best outlet passer the NBA has seen in quite some time. Players like Tim…

  13. Evan Turner hits game-winner at the overtime buzzer to give Sixers win over Nets (VIDEO)

    Dec 20, 2013, 10:51 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    When the Nets played the Sixers just four days ago in Brooklyn, they won by 36 points and honestly, the game wasn’t even that close. Things were different Friday night in Philadelphia, however, and it had everything to do with the available personnel. Kevin Garnett took this game off as a day of rest, and…

  14. Kendrick Perkins tells Joakim Noah to “get your a– up out’ of Thunder locker room

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    In the NBA, guys often have good friends on the opposing team — guys they played with in AAU or college, guys who share an agent, guys they work out with in the summer. There is a camaraderie. Kendrick Perkins is old school, weaned on the Kevin Garnett “I hate the guys on the other…

  15. Nets notes: Kidd takes some credit, Lopez downplays injury, and Pierce off the bench

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – A few leftover items from Thursday night’s big win for the Nets, the team’s third straight. When Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant coach Lawrence Frank a little more than a week ago, it was viewed in one of two ways. Either it was a desperate attempt to shift the blame for…

  16. Kevin Garnett: ‘November was a s—– year for us’ (yes, he said year)

    Dec 12, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    2eb82d82cada1dc844e2603d8f417b8e

    The Nets and Knicks have been the NBA’s two most underwhelming teams this season, but some statistical models predicted New York would slip. Few, if any, expected Brooklyn to struggle like this. From afar, I recognize Brooklyn’s troubles, but like most, I’m mostly numb to them. That’s certainly not the case for Kevin Garnett certainly,…

  17. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  18. Kidd says he is reading Frank’s “reports” as details of Nets coaching mess come public

    Dec 11, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    In case you needed a good laugh today — Jason Kidd says he is reading the “reports” that reassigned assistant coach Lawrence Frank is writing. That’s what he told the New York Post. “I’ve been reading the reports [Frank is filing], and that’s as far as it’s going.” Riiiight. Now, if it the reports read…

  19. Doc Rivers says rift between Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett ‘will be fixed’

    Dec 8, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    When Ray Allen chose to leave Boston as a free agent and join Eastern Conference rival Miami following the 2012 season, it didn’t sit well at all with two of the Celtics’ biggest stars. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were upset by Allen’s decision, even though he wasn’t guaranteed a thing in Boston and was…

  20. Report: Jason Kidd safe as Nets coach until team gets healthy

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    The Nets are going through an especially rough time right now, and even mentioning as much seems like a gross understatement of the facts. Brooklyn has lost several of its key players due to injury, including Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Andrei Kirilenko, and Jason Terry. Head coach Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant Lawrence Frank…

  21. Jason Kidd making defensive changes, trying to shake up Nets

    Dec 7, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    It’s all on Jason Kidd now. Lawrence Frank is gone as a scapegoat, Kidd is in charge of the ship — a 5-14 ship with the worst defense in the NBA. You can see how bad the defense is by looking at the stats, where you see the Nets give up a league-worst 108.6 points…

  22. Bargnani blows by Garnett for dunk (VIDEO), later gets ejected for trash talking him

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    kg-bargnani

    When the Knicks got Andrea Bargnani the sales pitch from the pro-Bargnani side was he could do things Steve Novak couldn’t — play some defense in the post and put the ball on the floor and blow by guys. Whether those skills are really worth $23 million over two years is now a moot question,…

  23. Knicks snap nine-game losing streak by crushing depleted Nets

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    NEW YORK – In a game that was supposed to be a lively and competitive rivalry contest between two teams who share a city and began the year sharing aspirations of contending for a title, the end result was to fans what the entire season has been for both the Knicks and the Nets —…

    kg-bargnani

    NEW YORK – The Knicks ended their nine-game losing streak with a blowout win over the Nets in Brooklyn, and early in the fourth with the game already decided Kevin Garnett and Andrea Bargnani got into a brief scuffle that resulted in both players being assessed technical fouls. Garnett is normally the one to blame…

  25. 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…
