Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - Is he the Nets new personality?

The Nets were, let's face it, boring last season. Playoff race or not, there wasn't a lot of star power a lot of personality on display.  Wonder why the Nets local TV ratings weren't very good ...uh, actually the worst in the NBA? There was no riveting personality to draw eyeballs. The front office tried to rectify by acquiring some high-flying additions to the roster ... and by dumping a player fans had a hard time embracing. So who will supply the personality? Brook Lopez is quirky, but Joe Johnson and Thaddeus Young, while solid citizens, aren't going to set the world on fire. Jarrett...

Young and Lopez were the biggest deal of the summer

We think of Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young as a unit: two guys who when paired make the other better.  It was evident in their play after the deadline. The Nets went 17-15 with the two of them on the court together and as they got better acquainted, the team's record and their performances got better too. They won 13 of their last 19 regular season games and had their only real winning streak --six games. Lopez looked unstoppable down low with six 30-point performances and Young got a lot of open shots. Surprisingly, he had the highest three point percentage on the team --38 percent. The...

Brook Lopez: Leadership is on me

In an interview with NBA TV, Brook Lopez admitted that part of the Nets leadership this season is on him and that the team's new, athletic players are the kind of "athletic energy guys that we really needed last year." In the interview, at halftime of the summer league camp between the Nets and Pelicans, Lopez was asked, "Is leadership on your shoulders?" "It definitely is. It's weird for me to think of myself as a vet. its bizarre but I'm one of the elders on the team now. I was talking to Thaddeus about this during our whole free agency process, what we expected from Brooklyn, what we...

Will first question to Brook be about Robin?

At 11 a.m. Thursday, the Nets will introduce their four free agents --so far-- in Brook Lopez, Thaddeus Young, Shane Larkin and Thomas Robinson. That's a $116 million investment and unlike their last big free agent press conference, two years ago, all four are younger than 35. In fact, they're all between 22 and 27. The first question is likely to be directed to Brook Lopez, who's making $63.7 million over three, and it's likely NOT to be about money but instead the other big free agent signing in New York, the Knicks signing of his brother Robin.  The twin brothers' rivalry once separated...

Thaddeus Young: "The sky’s the limit for this team”

The Nets final roster is still a work in progress as they try to fill their final roster spots ... and try to figure out what to do with their two $20+ million backcourt mates, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson.  Still, Thaddeus Young likes what he sees. "I’m very excited to be going back and the sky’s the limit for this team," Young told a Memphis radio station. Mike Mazzeo reported on the interview.  He complimented the Nets for getting him and Brook Lopez under contract so quickly in free agency.  "We were able to kinda just discuss it and come to terms as quickly as possible...
