A healthy Jeremy Lin and new faces have Nets talking ‘surprise’

INDIANAPOLIS — The Nets enter Wednesday’s season opener against the Pacers just as curious as they are confident. Last season’s finish and this summer’s additions have them convinced they’re better than the team that went an NBA-worst 20-62. But the proof is in the production, and the Nets are itching to show they really have...

Knicks movin' on, Nets movin' up in 2017-18 NBA season

In theory, the great thing about having two NBA teams in New York is that it should double the chances of seeing some decent basketball.

With two days before opening night, starting lineup still not set

With two days before opening night, starting lineup still not set

A few weeks back, when Kenny Atkinson and Sean Marks had their preseason press conference, the coach told reporters that he had a starting lineup “way back here,” pointing to his head. “Eventually, it will come to the mouth, and we’ll let you guys know.” As of this weekend, it’s still back there. The big question remains who starts at the 3. The starting back court seems set with Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell. Timofey Mozgov started all four preseason games at center and Atkinson has praised Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s work at the 4. DeMarre Carroll, who appears to have...

Is Nets’ highest-paid player really not going to start?

Is Nets’ highest-paid player really not going to start?

The Nets used the exact same starting lineup throughout the preseason, but coach Kenny Atkinson insists that’s no guarantee it will remain the same when they open the regular season Wednesday in Indiana. Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell are the first-choice backcourt, and Timofey Mozgov is the presumptive starter at center. But who will get...

Russell and Lin must find consistency... together

Russell and Lin must find consistency... together

There’s so much talk about Brooklyn’s backcourt and how it will work with D’Angelo Russell and Jeremy Lin sharing the rock at the 1. It has been one of the reasons for optimism and one of the team’s biggest mysteries too since Russell was traded to Brooklyn. After the first preseason game, Lin told reporters that he is “Definitely a 1” and that Russell is “Definitely a 1” as well. In an interview with NBA TV, Russell said people should see the two of them not as 1’s or 2’s, but as “attacking guards.” The Nets are hoping no matter what they call each other, the duo...

Scenes from a Practice (in the Park)

Scenes from a Practice (in the Park)

The Brooklyn Nets hosted what it called “Practice in The Park at Brooklyn Bridge Park,” Saturday but it was more an event for to get connected with the die-hard fan base rather than a practice per se. Coming just days in-time for the regular season opener, next Wednesday, vs. in Indiana, it was SRO on Pier 2. For the players and their fans, they just had fun. First, let’s begin with the player introductions, led by Yakuba Ouattara and stamped by Jeremy Lin at the back end. .@BrooklynNets player intros at @BklynBrdgPark. #Nets @NetsDaily pic.twitter.com/grCJz3ndhb— Bryan Fonseca...

The many layers of Jeremy Lin’s hair

The many layers of Jeremy Lin’s hair

The public dialogue between Kenyon Martin and Jeremy Lin over Lin’s new ‘do presents a rich opportunity for nuanced discussion on race, stereotypes, cultural appropriation and the many faces of intolerance. For those who missed it, Jeremy Lin got dreadlocks, shared his thoughts about the decision in a piece for The Players’ Tribune called “So ... About My Hair” and invited others to join in the conversation. Kenyon Martin accepted the invitation by making rather harsh statements about Lin. Rightfully, Martin accused those who flooded his social media pages with racist,...

For Nets, it’s not the wins, but the way they’ve won

For Nets, it’s not the wins, but the way they’ve won

If the Nets beat the 76ers on Wednesday in the preseason finale, it will be the first time they’ve won four straight games in regular or preseason since April 2015, when they won six straight. Preseason or not, it would be a positive for a team that’s won so rarely the last two seasons. And as Jeremy Lin says, it’s not so much the wins, but how they’ve won. “[What do I take] from the actual wins themselves? Nothing. Let’s say for example we were 0-3 but we were still playing the same way, my takeaways would be pretty much the same. It’s just I think we’re playing the...

JLin, KMart talk and (finally) it’s all good

A lot has been made of this whole Kenyon Martin and Jeremy Lin hair debacle but after the two talked, it seems the issue has been resolved, player-to-player. Lin revealed the discussion after the Nets beat the Knicks at Barclays Center. “He reached out and he was extremely apologetic… it was a great conversation,” Lin told reporters. “I think things were blown out of proportion, taken a little out of context as well. But me and him had a discussion where he was extremely courteous. “Like, I’m actually impressed with how he handled everything. I’m thankful for the...

Scenes from a practice: Saturday

As reported earlier, Saturday was the day Caris LeVert and Allen Crabbe returned to practice ... and Sunday is the day when fans will likely to get to see them play when the Nets face the Knicks again, this time at Barclays Center. We took a look at what else was going on at HSS Training Center ... who was working on what with whom. There’s a rule, more of a superstition actually, that you never leave the court until you make a shot. Dreadlock Jeremy Lin followed that rule by making four consecutive three-point shots before heading to the showers: Practice scan capped off with 4...

Kenyon Martin apologizes to Jeremy Lin, still finds his dreads “hilarious”

Kenyon Martin had some harsh words for Jeremy Lin a few days back, saying “we get it, you wanna be black” after Lin decided to rock dreadlocks. Lin responded (twice) with a gracious, even eloquent answer. Since then, Kenyon Martin deleted the videos on Instagram of him talking down on Lin and his hairstyle and received a lot of blowback. Now, TMZ has posted a video of Martin apologizing to Lin, but nevertheless called his hairstyle “hilarious”. “Wasn’t really saying it to him, Martin said. I was just making a blanket statement, which I probably should’ve reached out to him....
