    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  2. With game in balance, Jason Kidd tells player to “hit me,” spills drink, gets psuedo timeout to draw up play

    Nov 28, 2013, 12:19 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    This is very clever by Nets coach Jason Kidd. Oh, he’s going to get a healthy fine from the league for this, but it was clever. The Nets were down two with 8.3 seconds left in the game and the Lakers’ Jodie Meeks was on the free throw line. The Nets were going to get…

  3. That is one relieved Jason Kidd after Nets win (VIDEO)

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Jason Kidd

    Brooklyn did their best to choke away a win Tuesday. Toronto went on a 14-0 run in the final minutes to get it within two (after the Nets did not play the free throw game well), and they had a shot at tying it. (Go read our nightly NBA Grades to see what I thought…

  4. With Kobe staying as highest-paid player in NBA, the Lakers can rebuild but it’s not easy

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has signed a contract extension and is staying on with the Lakers for two more seasons. That news made Lakers nation happy — go to a Lakers game and you see the flood of 24 jerseys in the crowd — you quickly realize why the Lakers could not let him go at any…

  5. Kevin Garnett does not hear you calling him old (VIDEO)

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    If these new noise cancelling Beats by Dre headphones really can help you tune out Skip Bayless I may shell out for a pair. This new ad for the headphones features Kevin Garnett tuning out his critics (be careful, a little NSFW language in there). You need to suspend your belief in reality for this…

  6. Lakers sign Kobe Bryant to two-year, $48.5 million contract extension

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is going to finish his career a Los Angeles Laker — 20 seasons with the same team. That would be the longest single-team tenure in NBA history. Monday morning the Lakers announced that Bryant — who has yet to play this season as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles tendon — has signed…

  7. Kevin Garnett on Nets: “I think everybody here is embarrassed”

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:22 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Frustration bubbling to the surface in the Nets locker room is understandable — after five straight losses and falling to 3-10 on the season Sunday with a loss to the Pistons I’d be more worried if they weren’t a little angry. Brooklyn has one of the worst defenses in the NBA so far this season…

  8. Report: Nets’ coach Jason Kidd has backing of management

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:24 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Brooklyn Nets are a hot mess. They have key injuries (Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko, Jason Terry), they have an offense that devolves into isolation plays that are easy to defend, and they have a defense that is without cohesion (especially when Brook Lopez is out). They have lost five in a…

  9. Nets players stick up for coach, say Jason Kidd not the problem

    Nov 20, 2013, 12:02 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    There is not one problem with the Brooklyn Nets this season, there are many — injuries, Kevin Garnett looking his age, an offense that devolves quickly into isolations. However, in the NBA where star players are at a premium and everyone has guaranteed contracts, it is coaches who shoulder the blame. That has already started…

  10. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  11. Monday night NBA grades: A tale of two Brooklyn halves

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while watching Jean-Claude Van Damme do the splits between two moving trucks… Brooklyn Nets first quarter offense. With all that talent on the roster we expected some big nights from Brooklyn and it looked like we would finally get one (even if…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  13. Report: Knicks covet Rajon Rondo, made laughable offer to Boston

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:31 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    It is possible Danny Ainge will trade Rajon Rondo — he seriously talked offers for him when they had Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, you think he won’t consider it now that they are rebuilding? But he’s not giving Rondo away for the spare change in the couch. Which brings us to this note about…

  14. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett didn’t come to the arena for Nets’ loss to Clippers

    Nov 17, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    Most of the time in the NBA, if a team’s star players are going to miss a game due to injury, they will still accompany their teammates to the arena and either receive treatment in the locker room while the game is going on, or wear a suit and represent on the sidelines. Paul Pierce…

  15. Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Brook Lopez will all miss Saturday’s game at Clippers due to injury

    Nov 16, 2013, 7:30 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    The Nets got their first road win of the season in spectacular fashion on Friday, getting a game-winner from Joe Johnson at the overtime buzzer to beat the Suns in Phoenix. The victory was a costly one, however, as Brooklyn will be extremely shorthanded when the team faces the Clippers in Los Angeles on Saturday.…

  16. Joe Johnson hits the overtime game-winner to send Nets past Suns (VIDEO)

    joe johnson nets

    PHOENIX – Joe Johnson‘s game-winning layup as the overtime buzzer sounded gave the Nets their first road win of the season, a hard-fought 100-98 victory that came without the team’s starting point guard, Deron Williams. Williams was lost early in the first quarter to a sprained left ankle, but the play of Shaun Livingston, along…

  17. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  18. Jason Terry says Nets need to play “desperate.” That and they need a better offense.

    Nov 14, 2013, 3:01 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    The Brooklyn Nets got manhandled by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. The Kings came in with a struggling offense yet put up 107 points on the Nets “defense,” while on the other end of the floor the Nets offense was stagnant and without ball movement, generating 86 points. The Brooklyn Nets are 2-5 and have…

  19. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  20. Pacers’ Lance Stephenson given pathetic taunting technical (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 10:05 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Really? Lance Stephenson has really stepped up his game this season and Monday night put up a triple-double (13 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) with Tony Allen covering him a chunk of the night. That Memphis chose to stick arguably the best perimeter defender in the NBA on him speaks to how well Stephenson is…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  22. Ray Allen says Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett haven’t spoken to him since he left Celtics for Heat

    Nov 10, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Ray Allen

    The players and coaches of the Celtics team that won a title in 2008 and contended for a few years afterward pretended as though there was a bond in place that was more special than it was anywhere else. But once the business side of things began to take precedent over the basketball side, things…

  23. Pacers improve to 7-0 with win over Nets

    Nov 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    paul george

    Heading into this weekend, we wondered if the Pacers would be able to continue their perfect start to the season facing a tough road matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. But while the Nets are still finding their way from a chemistry standpoint, the Pacers are already there. And behind yet another strong all-around game from…

  24. Kevin Garnett finishes the putback slam against Pacers (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Kevin Garnett listens during a news conference introducing him in Brooklyn

    Kevin Garnett is in his 19th NBA season now with the Brooklyn Nets, but the man still has a nose for the ball and can get up for a spectacular finish on occasion. Early in the fourth quarter of his team’s matchup with the undefeated Pacers, Garnett saw the opportunity and pounced, going uncontested to…

  25. Gerald Wallace sounds uncomfortable in Boston, like guy wanting trade

    Nov 6, 2013, 9:28 PM EST

    O.J. Mayo, Gerald Wallace

    Every time Gerald Wallace opens his mouth, it sounds to me like a guy bucking for a trade. He is trying to grease the skids out of town. It started in the preseason with his attempts at “leadership.” However, with his contract, he may have no choice but to suck it up for a while.…
