Kidd did the right thing. Frank's a terrible coach now, just look what he did to Andre Drummond.

Good move. Frank's never been the best PG in the history of NBA so he doesn't know what it takes to win and players don't respect him.

Grrrreat! I will pay you $99.99 with a nice bouncy post dated(2050) cheque. I think I found my Saul Goodman!

On topic, this is from while back but still fun to know...
Jason Kidd’s talk with Kevin Garnett about playing time ‘didn’t go too well’
Jason Kidd is wisely approaching his first coaching job as a student. He’s reached out to industry legends, hired his former head coach as his lead assistant and dedicated time to looking at the game through an entirely new lens. It’s a wise way to go through the transition process. Though Kidd has long been lauded for his cerebral approach to the game, he still has an incredible amount to learn in terms of managing talent and strategy from the other side.

But even his diligence and best intentions can’t fully prepare him for what’s in store, as Kidd apparently found out in some preliminary discussions with the recently acquired Kevin Garnett. Brooklyn’s new starting power forward is 37 years old and has logged nearly 53,000 career minutes — an amount of wear that would understandably make any coach a bit nervous. But Kidd’s attempts to persuade Garnett to potentially rest in back-to-back situations didn’t exactly go as planned.

From Adi Joseph of USA Today:

…Kidd already commands the respect of his players, who subscribed to the theory that he’ll relate better to them because of his recent playing tenure.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be bumps. Kidd spoke with Garnett recently about limiting the 37-year-old’s wear and tear by not allowing him to play games on consecutive days.

“It didn’t go too well,” Garnett said. “I understand what he’s saying. He just wants to make sure I’m durable. … I just don’t want to be told anything. I think I’ve earned the right to have an opinion on something that I’m doing. From a chemistry standpoint, I think it’s important for me to be out there with everybody.”

A first-time coach like Kidd might have an easier time with a veteran roster in some respects, but this particular dynamic illustrates the complications involved in managing an assortment of established, star-level players. Veterans like Garnett come to the Nets with firm expectations about touches, role and playing time, and it’s up to Kidd to soothe the egos of capable players in order to maximize Brooklyn’s potential. That could involve using Paul Pierce off the ball more frequently. It could mean lobbying Jason Terry to play the part of a slightly more traditional point guard. It might involve selling Andrei Kirilenko or Joe Johnson on playing fewer minutes, or in this case attempting to keep Garnett healthy for the long haul.

Most every key player involved in a team this deep is forced to compromise something, and in some cases proven veterans — who have been preconditioned to a certain role for more than a decade — have a hard time letting go. That won’t necessarily be the case with the Nets, but it’s clear already that Kidd will have to be both strategist and salesman to get this cast of current and former All-Stars to buy in completely.

Not a terrible idea in theory, but probably not the best thing to ask of a proud, competitive player like KG.

It's looking really bad for KG. Hoping he'd get his game back sooner or later. He was still solid last season. Otherwise might have been better if he just retired offseason.

He was dealing with this issue 2 years ago but coming off surprisingly a healthy season, this really is a big disappointment especially what's at stake for the Nets. It also looked like Jason Kidd was finally starting to get his players back from all those injuries but now he loses a key piece for season. Just wow.

Paul Pierce's 0 point game in a long time. This wasn't fun to watch. I turned it off soon after this incident which came out of nowhere.

I was just getting my hopes up before this game that Nets might be turning things around finally and play at high level but the Pacers really made them look their age. Stephenson and Hibbert were just bullying all over the place.

At least they won tonight against the greatest tanker of the season, Milwaukee. Blatche is out for a few games now. Teletovic needs to step up. And they really could use Kirilenko. If he can stay healthy when he comes back, he'll be the key to the making playoffs imo.

What a season, from the off-season splash that made nets fans championship aspirations up, the day BLo broke his foot, the cup gate JKidd pulled-off, LFrank demotion, the 10-21 start to the best team in the east since new year, then Plumber, the Jason Collins signing, Jorge Guts, the F--- Brooklyn, Jay Z vs Drake? lol, Rihanna's bra-less game, then it all comes to a 2 round 4-1 series defeat against the 2-time defending champs. It was a roller coaster season.

I was really upset from the 1st 2-3 months, and hopes was lost when Brook's season ending injury happened then DWills ankles sigh. Never thought this team can go to the playoffs since then. For a team that started 10-21 then made the 2nd round and lost to the defending champs is not that bad imo. Tho our starters have all the championship, playoff experience, our bench were almost had 0 experience in the playoffs and like it's their 1st time getting playoff minutes w/ the exemption of Twin and Dray. They where really inconsistent since birth and we really have to relay on them.

Now off season is coming. I think it's time for KG to hang it up, as much as I want him to mentor Brook next season(look at Plumber) he's got no more gas to play more than 20 mins, maybe for a big man coach I might say yes. PP, the truth, this why got me here at raps lol, he might be back but I will also not be surprised if he leaves(w/c makes KG a goner a think). Slim might be gone as well since he might attract more money to other teams(Minny is interested) for the last time in his career. He was great this season but he was really exposed this playoffs, his lack of 3 and consistent J really hurt the spacing, and he can't run the point well, most of the times a ball-stopper esp w/ the bench guys. AK might stay/not, he's only played like 1/4 of the season for the nets, he's always had this back problem the whole season. Andray "Jun Jun" Blatche the Pinoy sensation might be gone as well, but I think will stay. BK should get younger and athletic this time, tho w/o draft picks here's hoping that we could buy at least a 2nd rounder from Proky's wallet. And if BK's going to make another big trade, at least pair DWill w/ a better PnR big/defender. DWill should get an repair on those glass ankles there is no more excuse for your $20 M PG next season to not have a surgery. Hoping for a healthy DWill(check last 2nd half last season) and Brook, w/ another monster JJ next season. Coach JKidd, you did a great job turning things around, but still you should learn from your rookie mistakes esp on rotations, in-bound plays, and all around better coaching next season. Great job on developing Mirza and Mase.

MVP of the (Nets) season: Joe Johnson, Joe Jezuz, Joe Cool, Iso Joe et al.
The lone all star of the team, the only consistent 20 pt scorer in the playoffs. People always point out his contract but I think JKidd made JJ better this season. He was all around better, JKidd made him a post-up player, spot-up sniper a lot more, less iso joe. Tho it was very effective, you must never do iso against the heat esp. against the beloved james, as he can do stone cold stunner you but won't get a foul called against him. This was his best playoff, since last year he was injured. He will always be remembered like his performance during game 5 at toronto, down 26 and he willed the team(Blatche happened on final possession) back, tho came up short still it was an unbelievable performance imo. Joe Cool, as what KG(made the Joe Jezuz) said "He's cooler than the other side of the pillow"..

guess u can conclude that in the long run it can be really hard to compete the coming years for the Nets because of the way they managed there contracts .. in the nba patients pays even though its not a garanty...

One things for sure, Brook is back and Deron will get his both ankles repaired this off-season w/c is great news. With them both healthy w/ JJ I can still see this team make some noise next season.

Rumors are that KG might be back(guaranteed salary next season) and PP as well(we can overpay him). Blatche and AA are goners I think. AK is really disappointed w/ the lack of playing time, though some teams might need him but the Russian connection will make him stay I guess. The sure bench guys are Mirza "Parkingaaa!" Teletovic and Mase(glad he got that all rookie 1st team). Thorton might be on the trading block, but I don't mind him staying, if he get's traded I hope it's a package for an athletic 4(Thad Young type of player) or a SG(Afflalo) since we have PP at the 4.

And yes we are over the cap, have no draft picks, players are overpaid and too old, but I don't think the future is that baaad for the nets. First is we have a great owner that can rain down money to lure players to come to Brooklyn(1st time in history we have that kind of owner), he's an asset. Then you have the KD sweepstakes, where I think only Brook/Deron are guaranteed to be paid by that time(not sure w/c one). With Jay Z being his beloved agent I think we have a shot(IF he can't have that championship trophy w/ his current team, IMO he leaves). I can see Proky buying a 2nd round pick this year's draft too. We can't tell what might happen.

Well I guess you might be right. But the previous season he played better after he went for surgery and made the all-star team. Tho I do agree that Lopez injury is like what Z had, Lopez is younger. And I think the added wt he had this season is definitely a factor on top of that. He was 290 from 230-240 last '12-'13 season.

Owner Mikhail Prokhorov's $200 million dollar gamble did not payoff in a trip to the Finals. The Nets not only had arguably the largest professional sports payroll ever, but they also mortgaged the future to construct their aging roster.

They had a shot last year. That window is closed.

The East might be a little better this season, so their chances probably aren't fantastic. It's not inconceivable that they overachieve a bit and sneak in as a lower seed, but it wouldn't surprise me if they came up just a bit short.

It was a gamble, they need to move from Newark NJ to Brooklyn with a bang. And that wouldn't happen w/o Proky. I do agree in some way that they mortgaged their future the way they build up their roster i.e. wallace trade, those precious picks etc. Gamble is really a bad thing, you're never sure on anything that might happen. Still I have high hopes for this team as long as Proky owns it. Players want to play w/ an owner that doesn't even care about cap space, Proky is one of those.

Again their chances of making the PO and going deep is on how healthy Deron and if Brook can be healthy this season. His post presence is badly missed by this team. I read that other's put Knicks ahead this season just because they have Melo & "the triangle", only PJax had an successful run w/ that kind of offense, GL.

Well Jax is with the Knicks, why shouldn't he and Fish establish a successful triangle offense there?
Nets are imho doomed to suck for the next couple of years. D-Will will struggle again with his health/attitude. KG is just getting older. Joe-below-average-PER-Johnson is not a valid first option for any contender. Lopez might have a good year ahead, but that's not enough...

Again their chances of making the PO and going deep is on how healthy Deron and if Brook can be healthy this season. His post presence is badly missed by this team. I read that other's put Knicks ahead this season just because they have Melo & "the triangle", only PJax had an successful run w/ that kind of offense, GL.

I told you this when all of this began. JJ/Walace/DWill/Lopez, it simply was a gamble that was never gonna pay off.

First button was wrongly put ofc everything went wrong, now's the time to suffer. Well, I guess the Nets at least made a bang with their new city. LoL

Nets are imho doomed to suck for the next couple of years. D-Will will struggle again with his health/attitude. KG is just getting older. Joe-below-average-PER-Johnson is not a valid first option for any contender. Lopez might have a good year ahead, but that's not enough...


Yep maybe your'e right, that in 1 year w/ a rookie coach w/ a team of melo-calderon-jr smith-dalembert-amare can equal the success of PJax's run w/ the bulls and lakers. The last team to apply that system was w/ I think rambis?(not sure) w/ K. Love and the wolves I think they won something like 30+ wins. Again we can't really predict what might happen. Last 4-5 months we were one of the oldest team in the league, w/ no picks on this year's draft. Now i think were between 15-20 of the teams that are younger and acquired 3 rookies. Saying we will suck for the next couple(2) of years might be accurate, but I guess same on the other 28 teams w/ the exemption on the team that will be crowned as champs this season. KG's old I agree, but I think under Hollins he might be better than last season. JJ's per? look at his stats last PO, he might be not a good 1st option but he's the most clutch(last 2 mins of the game) player on the last 2/3 seasons. As for Lopez we need him to be healthy for the team to take the next step.

Every team takes gambles, ofc it's impossible that every team can be a success. Just like injuries & coaching changes you can't predict everything that might happen. Maybe they will suffer or face the consequence and be better, you'll never know.

Nope, Travis "THE GREAT" Outlol was amnestied by the nets and everybody was happy.

Deron, Joe, and Brook on the trading block

The Brooklyn Nets have begun reaching out to teams to let them know that former All-Stars Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson are available via trade, ESPN.com has learned.

League sources told ESPN.com that the Nets, off to a disappointing 8-11 start and looking to retool after last season's $190 million roster filled with veterans couldn't advance beyond the second round of the playoffs, have let it be known that they are prepared to move any of those franchise cornerstones in what would likely be separate deals if they came to fruition because of the high salaries each possess.
----------
Yet sources insist that the Nets haven't abandoned their recent "win-now mentality" and aren't merely looking to dump salary. Brooklyn's hope, sources said, is to construct a deal or two that bring back sufficient talent that enables the Nets to remain a playoff team.


Trade them all to Philly.

The Brooklyn Nets are available on the open market.

Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, five years into his failed championship pursuit as Nets owner, has made it known that the team is up for sale, according to league sources.

Keep that in mind this is a RESPECT Nets thread.

Lopez, 27, will receive a three-year, $60 million maximum contract that includes some protections for the Nets should a recurrence of Lopez’s foot issues sideline him again, sources said.

Young, 27, who opted out of $10.2 million owed him next season, will sign a four-year, $50 million deal, sources said.

Apparently, Deron Williams is on the block

The Nets reportedly are shopping veteran guards Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack and Joe Johnson, but Young and Lopez are in Brooklyn for the foreseeable future as the team's best assets.

Re: The Brooklyn Nets Thread (New Era)..

Postby graybakflip on Wed Sep 27, 2017 6:29 am

The last piece of the "famous" 2014 Nets, the team's All-time leading scorer and blocks leader, the best center in team's history was traded. Brook Lopez will be surely missed, and I do hope he'll play his best years with his hometown team now with the Lakers. People will now appreciate his offensive game, especially now that he added some 3's to his game. Just take care of his body and monitor his minutes, he'll do well against west bigs for sure. Thanks Brook!

So the new era is here..

I'm excited about this upcoming season. We now have a very competent front office & coaching staff in Markinson (Sean Marks & Kenny Atkinson). Everybody from top to bottom is now buying in in this new culture being set up by them. The Russians (ownership) are now in full support of the rebuild and being patient about it. Coach Kenny integrated it's style of play which is fast paced tempo, something like the houston rockets and atlanta hawks, as evidenced by their pace last season which ranked on the top teams and their 3pt attempts (but 5th last on 3pt %). So they are now playing exciting basketball once again its feels different now that we have a young group of players with high potential and can build around. We have a 1st round pick in this 2018 draft (TOR 1st & 2nd, from the Hamilton-Carroll trade). The future looks bright, so stay tuned.

Lets go Nets!

I wasn't aware that Lopez ranked so high on the team's all-time leaders charts. I guess he's had a longer tenure with the Nets than some of their other prominent players, like Jason Kidd, or Vince Carter. Just had a look, and it seems Buck Williams is still the man in a lot of categories.

Yessir! he's one of the longest tenured Net in teams history, 9 seasons i think, also missed huge amount of games due to injuries. Buck was a monster back then but never had the talent like Brook, specifically on offense.

Aggreed, we call that the "DR. J Curse". From what I've read in the team's history, if the ABA Nets never trade DR J we might had one championship banner for the NBA. Well that's a long story. Yep, last season if JLin hadn't been injured, we might not be the worst team in the league. JLin got injured and eventually Vasquez, so we had to start our rookie Whitehead to handle the PG duties, which I know helped him develop alot. Hoping for a healthy season, they should do minutes restriction for JLin, Mozgod, DeMarre Carroll(which he sad he's 100% healthy).

man, first and foremost RESPECT, but the roster is looking dreadful. Outside of JLin/moz for short period, and Carroll, none of these cats have ever played above average basketball. The team is absolute junk and should produce a high draft pick next season undoubtedly. Good luck.
