Brooklyns Insane Financial Loss

1

According to Zach Lowe of Grantland, the Nets lost $144 million in 2013-14 -- $131 million more than the next team, the Washington Wizards. So, just how did the Nets lose 11 times as much money as the next team? The majority of that $144 million comes from the team's luxury tax payments for its extravagant payroll. The additions of Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry and Paul Pierce bumped the Nets' payroll to more than $100 million. That was the highest ever by an NBA team and it triggered a $90 million luxury tax. The previous high for an NBA team's luxury tax was the $51.97 million paid by Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen in 2002-03.

"Joel Freeland's injury certainly opens up another potential landing spot for Spencer Hawes. Portland called the Sixers back in December." Not any real news, I just didnt know we had actually contacted the Sixers regarding Hawes. Interesting tidbit for everyone who thinks Hawes would be great for us.

Report: Lawrence Frank retaining legal counsel to work on Nets buyout - CBSSports.com

Ansd so the Nets drama continues. I cant say that I blame L Frank Bomb. I was just watching NBATV with Vince Cellini, Dennis Scott and Shaq and they all said they had never ever heard of an asst coach reduced to any kind of role like Frank was reduced to. They said they had heard of entire coaching staffs being fired and such, but apparently JKidds decision was like nothing they had ever heard of.

OT- NBA superfan Jimmy Goldstein has his own ideas about how to stop flopping - Yahoo! Sports

6

His proposal: "Last season, the NBA tried to discourage flopping by fining players. As Commissioner David Stern acknowledged, it didn't work. Therefore, I would propose another approach to stop the flop. The rule should be changed so any time that a defensive player falls flat on his back immediately upon contact from an offensive player, the officials will not call any foul. This rule will eliminate any motivation for the defensive player to deliberately fall down when contact is made. Those opposed to my proposal will suggest that this is not fair to the defensive player who can't stop himself from falling on his back after being run over by (say) LeBron James. My answer is that the defensive player will make every effort to keep his balance so that a foul will be called. And if he staggers before falling, the official will be allowed to call the foul. The offensive player will be afraid to run over the defensive player because the offensive player will be called for a foul so long as the defensive player holds his balance for a split second before falling (or doesn't fall flat on his back)."

The new Blazer bench, the importance of Meyers Leonard and what about the defense? | CSN Northwest

I agree with the Meyers Leonard part big time. I think thats a huge forgotten or unspoken aspect to the Lopez signing. Meyers development and taking over as the starter are a big part of the plan here. This is a good article by Jaynes and he even quotes Dave from Blazersedge in the article!
