  1. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  2. Raymond Felton fans flames of Knicks vs. Nets “rivalry”

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:35 PM EST

    Raymond Felton

    For my money, true rivalries are born in the playoffs — you need to play games with something genuine on the line before you have some true animosity between fan bases. For example, while it’s gotten more interesting lately, I don’t think there is a great Lakers/Clippers rivalry in Los Angeles yet. Lakers/Celtics, Lakers/Spurs, those…

  3. Deron Williams hosting Nets players-only workouts

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets guard Williams reacts after Chicago Bulls were fouled late in fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of bonding to do — and fast. They have a veteran team that can win big if a lot of things go right for them — one of those keys is they need to bond as a unit. This isn’t the Rockets, which can take a year to have…

  4. Report: Celtics looking for assistant coach who can relate to Rondo

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rajon Rondo may ultimately develop a great relationship. However, it’s going to take work and time — they come from very different places. Rondo is understandably feeling some culture shock with Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all gone and an entire new coaching team and philosophy coming…

  5. Paul Pierce says there’s no question that Rajon Rondo can be ‘the man’ in Boston

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    The Celtics decided it was time to rebuild for the future this offseason, so they traded away Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. The team hung onto Rajon Rondo, however, and despite many teams lining up to try to steal the All-Star point guard away, Boston maintained all along that it had…

  6. Raymond Felton says Paul Pierce ‘talking all this junk’ will boost Knicks-Nets rivalry

    Aug 16, 2013, 7:16 PM EST

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

    A rivalry in sports has different meanings depending completely on perspective. A team with a long history of a winning tradition is not likely to view those with lesser credentials as a rival, but teams with a little brother complex that are in close proximity may get up for games against the more historically powerful…

  7. Report: In 2012, Magic had deal in place to trade Dwight Howard to the Rockets

    Aug 14, 2013, 6:17 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard made the decision to join the Rockets in free agency this summer, but he could have been playing for Houston last season and skipped the largely unpleasant experience he had with the Lakers entirely. Howard was in the process of forcing his way out of Orlando late in March of 2012, but ultimately…

  8. Brook Lopez expects to be healthy for Nets’ training camp

    Aug 14, 2013, 1:00 PM EST

    Brook Lopez, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah

    Brook Lopez had an excellent season for the Brooklyn Nets last year, averaging 19.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and over two blocks per game while being named to his first All-Star team. The center received bad news right after the season ended, though, and was forced to undergo a third surgery on his right foot in…

  9. Pierce says Rondo injury was first domino in Boston rebuild

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:43 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    It was back in January when any hope of the Boston Celtics as contenders was completely dashed — Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL and was done for the rest of the campaign. That was also the day the first domino fell that eventually led to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett being traded to the…

  10. Paul Pierce plans to skip Nets’ preseason game in Boston

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:58 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    We’re all well aware of how emotional it will be for the fans in Boston and the players alike when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett play their first game against the Celtics as members of the Brooklyn Nets. They could get it over with fairly quickly, as the Nets are slated to play in Boston…

  11. Robert Parish says Paul Pierce on Nets is “awkward”

    Aug 9, 2013, 10:51 AM EST

    robert-parish

    Even for non-Celtics fans it’s going to take a little getting used to — Paul Pierce in the black and white of the Brooklyn Nets. It’s going to be really strange for PP himself. Celtics legendary big man Robert Parish — who ended his career with two seasons in Charlotte and one in Chicago —…

  12. Paul Pierce says he didn’t want to be part of rebuilding, trade was mutual

    Aug 8, 2013, 4:48 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce will always love Boston, he’s admitted being traded out of there this summer has been hard on him. His number will eventually go into the rafters and generations of Celtics fans will tell their kids about “The Truth.” That didn’t mean he wanted to stay through a rebuild. Now Pierce and Kevin Garnett…

  13. Celtics great Robert Parish understands what it’s like to be Rajon Rondo

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    robert parish Bulls

    Rajon Rondo is a legitimate All-Star point guard, and the only elite level talent left on a Celtics roster that will be undergoing a full-fledged rebuild beginning next season. There are questions as to whether or not Boston will (or should) retain Rondo during this transition, because at some point, you need special players to…

  14. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  15. Bobcats have most back-to-backs (21), Nets have 20

    Aug 7, 2013, 10:18 AM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Just last season Jason Kidd was an older player who needed a little extra rest here and there, and got it during back-to-backs. Now he’s the head coach of a team with some older key pieces — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — and once he looked at the NBA schedule released Tuesday he had…

  16. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  18. Doc Rivers thinks trade could rejuvenate Paul Pierce

    Aug 5, 2013, 10:43 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    It was pretty evident Paul Pierce didn’t love the idea of being traded. It seemed a situation where he intellectually understood this as a good move for him, but after 15 years as a Celtic is was understandably emotionally hard. But Doc Rivers thinks it could be good for him. Rivers, who left Boston as…

  19. Report: Pistons still have interest in Rajon Rondo, even after acquiring Brandon Jennings

    Aug 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons were reportedly one of the first teams in line to talk with the Celtics about a potential deal for Rajon Rondo, once Boston entered a full-fledged rebuild by sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. Whether due to the offers being low while Rondo still rehabs from a torn ACL injury,…

  20. Jason Kidd using movies like “Matrix,” “Elysium” to motivate Nets

    Aug 2, 2013, 10:17 AM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    When you’re the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, you get invited to exclusive special movie screenings. That doesn’t happen much to the head coach of the Bucks (sorry to break it to you, Larry Drew). Kidd was at the New York premiere of the new Matt Damon/Jodie Foster film “Elysium” (which looked good in…

  21. Andrei Kirilenko scoffs at Russian conspiracy theory

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:11 PM EST

    Andrei Kirilenko

    You have heard the conspiracy theory by now: Andrei Kirilenko opted out of the $10.2 million final year of his contract with Minnesota to sign with the Brooklyn Nets for the taxpayers midlevel exception of $3.1 million (he signed a two year deal). Around the league there are plenty of executives convinced there is something…

  22. More schedule leaks: Nets to host Heat in home opener, Knicks to host Heat Feb. 1

    Jul 31, 2013, 7:47 PM EST

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    The full 2013-14 NBA schedule is likely to be released some time in the next couple of weeks, but there are certain entities (like the league’s broadcast partners, for example) that have seen as close to what will be the final draft as possible. That’s one reason some of the marquee dates are beginning to…

  23. Chalmers knows East going to be a lot tougher this season

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    The Indiana Pacers get Danny Granger back and added a lot of depth. The Chicago Bulls get former NBA MVP Derrick Rose back. The Brooklyn Nets added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, plus some depth. The New York Knicks added Metta World Peace and will have Iman Shumpert a full season. Miami has won the…

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  25. Doc Rivers says Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have plenty left to give to the Nets

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    When the Celtics pulled the plug on their championship aspirations by trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets, it wasn’t because those two Hall of Fame players were completely finished. Salary considerations — along with the reality that even if the core stars were kept together in Boston for one more season, it…
