DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 8:08 pm

Damn,

Blasphemy I know but I don't really care about the baseball playoffs this year... burnt out from the Mets season.

looks good, I like what I've seen from Sessions vs. what we saw from Rose.
I'm keeping an eye on it.  
bceagle05 : 10/8/2017 8:16 pm : link
How bout Ian Eagle calling the Giants/Chargers game and now Knicks/Nets? That's a full day's work.

As for the Knicks, they've lost a ton of offense with the departures of Melo and Rose, and are still equally terrible on defense. Gonna be a long tanking season.
Nets had 12 asssists  
hitdog42 : 10/8/2017 8:17 pm : link
In the first quarter... thatís Kenny ball
Crabbe looks good
Moz shooting treys
Levert still being eased back so nothing so far
Carroll clearly was not healthy in Toronto- looks good in bk
Prefer to see Allen play down Low against the knicks big lineup there

I hope so. Lets do this right and get a top pick. No point in being great or even good this year. Yes, tanking doesn't guarantee you anything but being mediocre guarantees you will continue to be, at best, mediocre. Let these contracts burn off or flip them for assets. KP, Willy, and hopefully Frank should be our focus. All decisions should be to see them grow.
Perry and Mills are saying all the right things.  
bceagle05 : 10/8/2017 8:23 pm : link
Should've really traded Lee this offseason though.

Lee has to go. Isn't a fit, blocks Dotson, has some level of value
Sometimes better deals come along later.  
robbieballs2003 : 10/8/2017 8:28 pm : link
It is easier to go with a vet and then go to the kids later but if you go with the kids early then there really isn't a plan B and that could mess wirh these young kids. I don't mind a guy like Lee on the team now. Let him help out the young kids until his time is up.

looks really good, active. Funny how little he jumps/can jump though.

The problem is they gave THjr 71 million so where are the minutes for Dotson if Lee is here?
THjr  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 8:30 pm : link
with some creativity with the ball. Don't remember seeing that during his previous time here.
Correct me if I am wrong  
robbieballs2003 : 10/8/2017 8:32 pm : link
But is THJ playing the 2 amd Lee mostly at the 3? Either way, Lee has a good rep so I think his trade value could increase if the right team needs him whether it is due to injury or a team wants to contend and could use his service.
Hard to tell this preseason  
hitdog42 : 10/8/2017 8:32 pm : link
If the nets are this improved or itís the opponents- but I get more optimistic by the minute. #cultureshock

Hornacek said Lee will see "time" at the 3. But they also have Michael Beasley and McDermott + Lance Thomas and Kuz....
That  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 8:36 pm : link
was a brutal half... 14 turnovers... 14!
"Hornacek looks

Wow  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 8:39 pm : link
Wally just tore into KP
Lee and Oquinn and possibly Kanter  
Earl the goat : 10/8/2017 8:39 pm : link
Will all be traded during the season
Noah will probably be stretched after the season
Tank Tank Tank
KP  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 8:52 pm : link
not on the floor to start the quarter, was limping earlier...
Porzingis  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 9:03 pm : link
sore right hip, done for the game, McDermott sprained finger
Lance Thomas, ladies and gentlemen.  
bceagle05 : 10/8/2017 9:07 pm : link

Thomas  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 9:08 pm : link
plays like he's in slow motion

Since he's Melos best friend maybe the Thunder take him off our hands
I recall someone saying on Reddit that

Lance plays like his sneakers are two sizes too big - probably the best description I've ever heard.

DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 9:11 pm : link
will make the team. Looks like a "pro" running the team
Porzingis  
jamesmichaelworm : 10/8/2017 9:14 pm : link
Not looking the part hope Iím wrong, but making him a focal point of your team gonna find out quick if he is option 1a
KP  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 9:17 pm : link
did not have a great half but the offense also looks all over the place. It's hard to even identify set plays. He had a few moments with Sessions.
KOQ  
DanMetroMan : 10/8/2017 9:19 pm : link

Will regret not trading KP this offseason. This site so overates this guy it's incredible

Nets fans can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ball movement, constant energy and passion, length to limit passing lanes, three point shooting from every position 1-5.

Sean Marks seems to have the Midas touch. Haven't been more excited about a Nets team since the early 2000s. Think they can get to 30-33 wins with upside if they get good health (something they never do).
Knicks - Winston Churchill said it best:

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. Winston Churchill
Wrong game. The end of the beginning...

Oh yes, the unicorn moniker, ESPN ranking him the 22nd best player in the league coming into this year, the frenzy at the draft around him being on the trade block, all products of the BBI hype machine. It is only on this site that he has high expectations placed upon him.
NBA.com survey from last week

Which player is most likely to have a breakout season in 2017-18? 1. Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Ė 21% 2. Kristaps Porzingis, New York Ė14%... yeah just BBi

HE's been in the league for two seasons. Two. He's barely old enough to drink legally but you're certain KP's ceiling is limited.

I don't care if KP completely falls apart these next 3-4-5 seasons, You're wrong to dump him this early.

Would have dumped him last season but I can see keeping him for this season. Let Horn coach with a sort of clean slate. If they bottom out see ya Jeff.

Just not seeing the effort on defense and he looks "defeated". I'd love to be proven wrong but I suspect he's not the coach next season.

to Washington for a conditional #2 make it so

Bobby Marks
ESPN


The Sheldon Mac injury would cost Washington $2.5M in additional luxury taxes if they were to waive the injured guard and replace him to start the season. The Wizards are responsible for the $1.3M remaining on his contract even with only $50K guaranteed.
