Why Avery Needs to be Fired

This is the first time I've expressed the Fire Avery sentiment. At least on this blog site. But last night's game with Miami captured the essence of why he's not a very good coach. "Not very...

Kansas Jayhawk Star Thomas Robinson Wants to be a Net

For what it's worth, Mr. Robinson wants to be a Net. Assuming we land either pick #2 or #3, I presume that he's on Billy King's radar. He's listed as 6'10" in some publications, but that's...

Cancel the Season and Wait til 2012

Michael Beasley: A Trade Proposal

I was a huge proponent of dumping Dooling last year to acquire Michael Beasley.  It would have been cheap and would have netted us a talented SF.  But we all know what happened.  Blinded by LeBron...

Nets' Biggest Blunders of 2010!! The List
