Hoops Hype
Former NBA commissioner David Stern was never one to shy away from expressing his opinion. Whether that was taunting the audience on draft night for booing him or making digging remarks to a twice-jilted Seattle market of fans, Stern received and accepted the reactions that came from those opinions. Even out of the full position of NBA commissioner — he carries the title of commissioner emeritus now — he’s still voicing what’s on his mind. This time, it’s directed at the Brooklyn Nets, the team that, for the final game of the season, benched Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor...

David Stern: ‘Shame on the Brooklyn Nets’

David Stern: ‘Shame on the Brooklyn Nets’

The Brooklyn Nets rested three of its top players in the final game of the season and it’s still a topic of conversation... two weeks later. The Nets were slated to finish with the worst record in the NBA, so Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson made the decision to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker. Former NBA commissioner, David Stern, was the latest to speak out against the Nets resting players, stating that it’s “inexcusable” and shameful on the front office’s part. "I have no idea what was in the mind of the executives of the Brooklyn Nets — none — when they...

Changing not just a culture, but an identity

Changing not just a culture, but an identity

The Brooklyn Nets are essentially building a franchise from the ground up. While Sean Marks has constantly alluded to building a “culture” off the court, Kenny Atkinson has established an “identity” for the team on the court as well. At the end of the 2015-2016 season, Sean Marks began to retool the Nets in his own vision. There were dozens of new front office hires. Kenny Atkinson was hired to lead the way on-court as head coach. Only four players that were on the 2015 opening night roster made it to opening night, 2016-2017. Two of those players (Brook Lopez and Rondae...

Playoff Robin Lopez Cannot be Stopped, at Least Not by the Celtics

Playoff Robin Lopez Cannot be Stopped, at Least Not by the Celtics

The value of Robin Lopez is already on full display early in the Playoffs A year ago, Robin Lopez was simply known as the mascot-massacring twin brother of the Brooklyn Nets’ soon-to-be all-time leading scorer. He was an underrated—at best—center that played solid minutes on a lowly New York Knicks team that seldom garnered any praise from the national media. As brother Brook continued to inch towards a personal legacy just across town, it appeared as though the other Lopez would never escape the shadow his twin brother cast on him once the two of them finished their playing days at...

Trying to read into Marks comments on Nets long-term plans

The playoffs are starting to fire up, but the top leadership of the Nets, out of the post-season for the second straight year, is getting ready for meetings in Moscow and preparing for the draft. The players are doing what players do when they’re not playing, a little bit of everything. Brook Lopez and Joe Harris, for example, were in Fresno, Brook’s hometown, watching the local team, the Taco’s. Of course, they were. Great to have Fresno native Brook Lopez & @BrooklynNets teammate Joe Harris at the ballpark tonight! Nice #TeamTacos swag. #TacoTuesday ...

How Lopez proved Marks right, and made Atkinson look like a genius

How Lopez proved Marks right, and made Atkinson look like a genius

We guess it’s still possible that the Nets could trade Brook Lopez but listening to Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson talk about their center, it seemed unlikely. “Brook, I think in both of our minds is one of the elite centers in the league,” Marks said of Lopez, who averaged a career-best 24.9 points per 36 minutes in 2016-17. “There’s no question there. If you look at the way his game has translated, not only in Kenny’s system but what he’s done in the off-season. He’s worked hard on the performance aspect of his body and so forth and also changing his game and adapting a...

Lopez, Lin expect to recruit free agents to Brooklyn

There have been rumors about who the Nets will go after this summer, but the team has never confirmed names. Moreover, under league rules, they can’t. Still, the names are out there: Milos Teodosic and Nicolo Melli from Europe; Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Otto Porter closer to home. There’s also been some talk of George Hill and Jonathon Simmons. On other side of the recruiting effort, expect the Nets two top players — Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin to meet and greet prospects at HSS Training Center and travel to wherever else the Nets might need them to go. “I’m sure I’ll be...

With the worst record and the second-most money to spend in the league, expect the Nets to be huge players in the free agent market. And from stars Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez to owner Mikhail Prokhorov, the Nets say they have developed a culture that will make recruiting easy. “I honestly don’t think it’s...

Brook Lopez wants to be part of Nets’ rebuilding plan

With the NBA changing, Brook Lopez reinvented himself along with it. He added shocking range to his game and became only the third player in league history with 130 3-pointers (134) and 120 blocks (124) in a season. Now the question is whether that makes Lopez — whose name pops up at every trade deadline,...
