THEY just showed someone interviewing keyon dooling asking him "is this youre worst road trip of the season" he answers " this is the worst road trip of my life" lol
Poor Keyon. nobody deserves to lose that much and espn isn't making it easier for them. They play clown music when it's their "lowlights"
Man..they really really really suck....I was watching PTI the other day and they were asking who would win between the Nets and the Kentucky Wildcats...lol
i've been saying for a while now that they would get to 10 wins and not break the record for fewest wins, but I'm thinking they won't make it now. Which is crazy when you consider that brook and devin are two very talented players.
i saw devin sitting behind the bench. must be hurt again
Yeah its too bad they are this bad..
Brook and Devin are great players..
CDR and Lee are solid but they can be really good too..
Yea its their Defense. Yi needs to be traded for a player who can defend one on one, help defend, be physical, and make minimal passes. With that alone they would be better because the guards and small forward can put pressure on the ball better and know that the two bigs will be on the same page defensively. And yea I know they are developing Yi but at some point they have to see that Yi is about 3+ years away from helping a team in the right ways. Trade or take him off the bench--good D and effort starts first.
Offensively, the Nets need to open the floor up again like what coach Frank did and let Devin do his thing once he gets healthy again. Brook has shown he can make bail out buckets in the post but the Nets dont play best when Brook dominates the ball--Brook is not Tim Duncan. Their pieces are fine, its the coaching, effort, defense and rebounding.
Yi for a defensive rebounder would be great. Hell I would think they could squeeze out a win with Humphries starting instead of Yi.
Heres what I would do if I were GM:
~Trade Yi either before or after the deadline (during the draft for more draft picks--in this case draft a smart defensive big like Cole Aldrich to either back up Brook or play alongside him)
~Establish some value in Devin. Open up the floor for him again like coach Frank did. Also publicly push that he is "Hurt" now and then get his value back up once he is "Better". He needs to play well even if they are still losing otherwise the Nets will get nothing for him trade-wise.
~Fire Vandewehg as Coach--yesterday.
~Tell CDR to chillzzle yo. You are "cool" and even though you think you are a good you are no good to a team if you have a bad attitude. I would actually trade CDR with Yi to Golden State for Stephan Curry or someone like that if I couldn't get a big who can play D and rebound.
~Tell Courtney Lee to keep his head up, you are going to be one of the main locker room presences/pieces to our future contending teams if you maintain a positive attitude.
~Tell the players to have fun.
yi doesnt need to be traded. hes not a great ddefender but he isnt much worst then other pf defensivley and hes young. young players tend to be bad defenders. plus while he was hurt the nets were still losing. its not just one player
its really bad, and i hope they dont break the record. But at this point it is mostly a mental thing, they go in to games expecting to lose, and I think this proves that Devin Harris and Brook Lopez arent leaders or number 1 options. And that isnt their fault but this team is in dire need of a superstar. Im rooting for the Nets to go on like a 3 game winning streak to double their win total in 3 games in late January would be something u would never see again. And they have enough talent to beat 3 lesser teams.
i dont agree that they arent number 1 options. there team as a whole is bad but im not ready to say that both as individuals are. they are young and need time just liek all young teams do. alot of people used to say last year that okc needs to make this or that trade and the grizz need to make this or that trade tearly this year. young teams need time. im not sure but i think they are the youngest team in the nba
