I do not see any of this on timeline. From what I see #Nets fans love KD Kyrie, are tickled silly to see them. May that change in future based on how things go? Of course, like anything. But that’s hypothetical. To date, fans love Both players. As they should, they’re unreal!
@loshernandez29 @brooklynnets85 @BKN_Says @WallStRique I’m not talking about this year. I’m talking about failing year 2 and 3. I see Nets fans sharpening their swords already. I didn’t even want superstars but imagine how this fan base will react if Nets never get out of the 2nd round? If Kyrie is hurt like he was this year? 🤭
The list of players include the likes of Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, Jrue Holiday and more. Also touch on how a decreasing cap could impact the rookie extensions of Jaylen Brown and Buddy Hield
NBA has expertly used media to get juice for league. It seems nba keeps delaying return and isn’t close to a decision but we see proposal after proposal idea after concept etc. doing a great job of staying relevant and getting free polling out of it too. And it doesn’t hurt us!
Spencer Dinwiddie on Kevin Durant: "At 80%, he's Dirk Nowitzki. At 100%, he's the best scorer of all-time. And anywhere in between, he's still a top-three small forward in the league... I don't see a world where he's not one of the elite players in the NBA when he comes back."
Why you can’t give Marks comments on Jacque much stock? It’s the classy thing to speak well of the incumbent, it’s disrespectful to say it’s open job while incumbent is coaching. Marks, being classy and smart, will say the right/nice things - it doesn’t mean he believes it
Let’s make 2 things clear since there appears to be debate. 1: #nets fired Kenny. It was not a mutual parting 2: Nets coaching search started and they’re working on vetting candidates. This crap that the search is on pause is nonsense
Thibodeau needs to show he can modernize his D but his D was still potent in 2015. And it’s not hard to play guys last minutes Is he really a bad candidate? Or are coaches deemed good or bad largely based on how likable they are. He’s gruff whereas Atkinson is super nice ...
I keep seeing people say Atkinson is a good NYK coaching candidate, and one reason is “he’s a New Yorker.” Why is this relevant? Pop, Phil, Auerbach, not from SA, CHI/LA, and BOS. What matters is hiring the best coach not where the coach is from.
New on E+: Tyus Jones was 1 Memphis Grizzlies win away from a $858K bonus when the season was halted. What happens to Jones and the other 25 plus players with incentives in their contract? We break down the likely outcome for each player. https://t.co/2o2dLxmqte
Also: if plan is to be 2016 FA players (that’s b-ball benefit to stretch Deron), you must KEEP PIERCE, to max W’s. The moves together show the 2014-16 lack of direction, during which years Prokhorov and his group put their wallets before team and fans.
a lesson: owners using stretch exception to save $ is REPREHENSIBLE. Don't stretch a bad cap hit unless there is a PRESENT DAY basketball impact that justifies it. Nets spread loss of 2016 summer to 2016-2019 summers with no 2016 benefit. Cost assets in 2019. Prok's fault. https://t.co/mdHCsQRpSy

Stars don’t care coaches, so neither is a lure for FA’s
Maybe it's me, but I think the Knicks would be better served from a free agent perspective, hiring Kenny Atkinson than Tom Thibodeau. So I'm all in on Thibodeau.
