Nets’ new era begins with Jeremy Lin at the controls

BOSTON — With the Nets’ season — and Kenny Atkinson’s tenure as coach — tipping off Wednesday night against the Celtics at TD Garden, they know they’re not winning an NBA title.

How Nets believe they can turn around league-worst defense

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is just 21 years old, but finds himself expected to be the defensive leader of the league’s worst defense. As far as the Nets’ wing is concerned, defense is just about pride and persistence: pride as a player not to let your opponent abuse you personally, and persistence as a team to defend...

Brooklyn Nets: The case for Bojan Bogdanović for Most Improved Player

Who is this Bojan Bogdanović, you may be asking yourself? Well, the European sharpshooter has given the Brooklyn Nets a consistent knockdown shooter, who occasionally will make an athletic play or two. Many NBA fans don’t know who this Bogdanović guy is, but this year that will change with a career changing summer. The Olympics will either help you or hurt you—plain and simple...

What’s next? 2016-17 Brooklyn Nets: I don’t know who is on the Nets

By now, NBA season previews are rolling out. Countless basketball sites, podcasts, and television shows are breaking down all 30 teams; projecting how each will fare based on additions and subtractions.

Carmelo Anthony calls Jeremy Lin face of the Nets, ‘believe it or not’

Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin have, by most accounts, always had a checkered relationship. So when Anthony was asked about Lin and his new team, the Brooklyn Nets, he was rather hesitant to respond.

Why the Brooklyn Nets should trade Brook Lopez

Here we go again. For years Brook Lopez has been the focal point of trade talks; whether its the disastrous Dwight Howard talks or last year’s Detroit Pistons possibilities, the Nets star center has found himself on the trade block more than he ought to have.
