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...

Jeremy Lin addresses stereotypes, emasculation of Asian men

As both an Asian-American basketball player and Asian male, Jeremy Lin has seen stereotypes emasculate his people.

Jeremy Lin on the “de-masculinization” of Asian men

In a YouTube video posted last week, a well-known Asian-American trainer posed this question to Jeremy Lin during a Q-and-A at a gathering of Asian-American men and women. “Did you ever come across the stereotype Asian guys not being attractive, and if you have, how do you think we can break that in the American culture especially?” fitness activist Kevin Kreider asked. Lin agreed with basic tenet of Kreider’s question, noting the bias he’s faced as an Asian-American male on the court and how that bias can even be seen in the Asian-American community. Kreider believes that the media...

Jeremy Lin Sees Bright Future For Brooklyn Nets, Plans To Help In Free Agency Recruitment

Jeremy Lin Sees Bright Future For Brooklyn Nets, Plans To Help In Free Agency Recruitment

Jeremy Lin sees the possibilities born of the Brooklyn Nets’ strong late season push. Despite a league worse overall mark of 20-62, the Nets finished 11-13 over their last 24 games with Lin and veteran center Brooks Lopez finally healthy and in the lineup together on a regular basis. The end result is Brooklyn has entered the offseason with as much optimism for the upcoming season as the franchise has had in any recent season. In addition, the Nets plan to be major players in summer free agency and could have as much as $33 million to lure a top-flight addition. “I honestly don’t...

Lopez, Lin expect to recruit free agents to Brooklyn

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...

Jeremy Lin: Free agents already showing ‘a lot of interest’ in Nets

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...

Point guard search big part of off-season

Point guard search big part of off-season

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the point guard position is going to be a big focus of the Nets off-season. With Jeremy Lin down for most of last season —a full 46 games— and his primary back-up, Greivis Vasquez, waived after three games, the organization knows it needs to be ready for any eventuality in 2017-18. Add the realization that the Nets are very serious in the pursuit of Euroleague star Milos Teodosic and you can see the 1 is could be No. 1. Kenny Atkinson is not ruling out finding a back-up on the current roster. Three of the team’s youngest players, Spencer...

Finding backup for injury-prone Jeremy Lin a high Nets’ priority

The Nets’ 20-62 season is over, but each game they won down the stretch with Jeremy Lin at point guard was a bittersweet reminder of the dozens they lost when he was hurt. Human nature had them thinking about the what-ifs and could-have-beens. And trying to make sure it doesn’t happen again. “Yeah, it was...

Jeremy Lin on free agency: Brooklyn is NOT a hard sell

Jeremy Lin on free agency: Brooklyn is NOT a hard sell

It's more or less conventional wisdom that the Nets will have a tough time attracting free agents this summer despite having a tidy salary cap stash approaching $30 million. Jeremy Lin disagrees. At his exit meeting with the New York media, Lin made a surprising argument when asked about potential difficulties on the free agent horizon. “I honestly don’t think it’s going to be that hard of a sell,” Lin said matter-of-factly, when asked about free agency. “First of all, it’s Brooklyn, it’s New York. "Second of all, everyone can tell this culture is completely different....

Nets get destroyed in finale, which they weirdly signed up for

CHICAGO — The Nets decision to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker — with three other players already hurt — in a 112-73 loss that had huge playoff implications ruffled some feathers, especially in Miami. And to a man the Nets say they sympathized — but not apologized. “As a competitor I understand...

Nets rest ‘BrookLin’ and finish the season with a 112-73 loss in Chicago

Nets rest ‘BrookLin’ and finish the season with a 112-73 loss in Chicago

Sorry Heat fans. In the final game of the season, the Nets decided to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker, while Quincy Acy, Sean Kilpatrick and Joe Harris sat out due to injury. Needless to say, the Nets had different intentions in mind, such as evaluating players for next season. In game 82, the Nets lost to the Bulls, 112-73, Wednesday night in Chicago and failed to kill Chicago’s chance at the postseason. If the Bulls lost and the Heat won, Miami would’ve made the playoffs as the eight seed. Meanwhile… The Nets finished the season with a 20-62 record, which is...

With Brook-Lin resting, will chances for Indy pick rise?

With Brook-Lin resting, will chances for Indy pick rise?

No one will accuse the Nets of tanking to get a measly second round pick, but the organization’s decision to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker vs. Chicago won't hurt their chances of picking up another second round pick in June's NBA Draft. Under terms of last year’s Thaddeus Young-for-Caris LeVert trade, if Indiana fails to make the playoffs the Pacers must surrender their second round pick this year. And it could happen. As we reported Tuesday morning... Indiana's second round pick could still wind up with the Nets. Miami and Chicago need to win and Indiana needs to lose...
