  • NetsDaily: It's #AskSpencer! Nets' Dinwiddie takes an hour's worth of questions from Nets fans

    That was obvious on a lazy Friday afternoon in late August when the Nets point guard launched an #AskSpencer hashtag and invited everyone to pose --and post-- their questions.

    Here you will learn his answers on everything from his K8IROS sneaker line to who's the best NBA 2K on the team (Nic Claxton) to whether he "smoked" D'Angelo Russell (he didn't) to whether he thinks Kyrie Irving is a legit MVP candidate (he does) to Kenny Atkinson's reaction when he takes a step-back three right in front of the bench (big smile) to whether Joe Tsai might get the Nets to sign Jeremy Lin (he doesn't know but says Lin's "his guy.

  • NetsDaily: Liberty come home to face the Dream

    Good vibes. The New York Liberty have been in the midst of an eight game losing streak, but snapped out of it with a quality road win on Tuesday night against the Indiana Fever. You take what you can get.

    The opponent tonight will be the Atlanta Dream. It's been a year of rebuilding for the Dream as they try to set themselves up for the future. They lost a close one to the Chicago Sky on Tuesday night, which pushed their losing streak to 12 games.

  • Empire Sports Media: New York Knicks: The Negatives of Signing Carmelo Anthony

    As you can recall, we had a Free Agency Fantasy piece on Carmelo Anthony and why it wouldn't have been such a bad idea for the Brooklyn Nets to have a look at him (see here). Not too long after, the NBA was briefly rocked with stories that Melo was working out with players on the Brooklyn Nets roster. It was reported that this was an informal workout of sorts that Brooklyn Nets brass would be taking a look at to evaluate whether or not they'd like to acquire Melo's services. These thoughts seem like assumed reporting as this seems like it wasn't the case.

  • NetsDaily: Brett Yormark: Nets sales talks began 'last spring'

    In an interview with VenuesNow, Brett Yormark says sales talks between Mikhail Prokhorov and Joe Tsai began "last spring."

    "I knew there was going to be an end to one chapter and the beginning of another. Ownership effectively told me last spring that (selling the majority share to Joe Tsai) was something they were contemplating. I extended my deal through December to provide oversight of the transaction."

    The sale, for a reported $3.5 billion, included both the Nets and Barclays Center. Originally, the plan was for Tsai, who purchased 49 percent of the team last year, to take over in 2021.

  • Empire Sports Media: A New York Knicks ownership would you rather

    The New York Knicks could have been sold back in 2008. Selling the team has been a topic of conversation for a while now. However, it seems 2008 was the best chance for that to actually happen for the Knicks.

    Mikhail Prokhorov, owner of the Brooklyn Nets, was looking to purchase a NBA franchise back in 2007-2008. He looked at the, then, New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks.

    For the sake of this article, the owner of our team, Knicks, shall not be named, but you know who we are talking about.

    Prokhorov considered purchasing the Knicks, but the owner wanted a 'bizarre sum' for the franchise.

  • Elite Sports NY: Brooklyn Nets SG Joe Harris starts 2nd-straight game for Team USA

    Brooklyn Nets fans can start to breathe a little easier about Joe Harris. For the second-straight exhibition game, Harris was in the starting unit for Team USA during preparation for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

    Team USA took down Australia in the first of two exhibition games between the two countries by the score of 102-86. Kemba Walker led the way with 23 points and Myles Turner was incredibly active, notching 14 points and collecting 10 rebounds.

    Harris finished with five points (2-for-4 shooting), four rebounds, and three assists. Although those numbers might look unspectacular, he scored both his buckets early in the first quarter and was a clear threat for the Boomers when he was on the floor.

  • Empire Sports Media: New York Nets: Can Kyrie Irving be a Successful Leader?

    This offseason left many questions for the Brooklyn Nets and NBA analysts alike. A plethora of these questions floated around Kyrie Irving. Can he be a leader? Was he the problem in Boston? How will he fare in his new situation? I'm sure there are plenty more, but they all follow this train of thought more or less. Does Kyrie have what it takes to lead? Well, Brian Lewis of the NY Post seems to think he is taking steps in the right direction.

    Over the course of the last few weeks, various players of the Brooklyn Nets roster have met up in Cali to get to working together.

  • Elite Sports NY: One key question for every player on the Brooklyn Nets 15-man roster

    Seven players from Brooklyn's 2018-2019 fifteen-man roster entered July's free agency. And of those seven, only one player was brought back: Theo Pinson. The remaining six spots were filled by a pair All-NBA second-teamers, some scrappy vets, and a couple of high-upside project players.

    The Nets are facing a mountain of expectations next season. By circumstance, this also means a multitude of unanswered questions.

    I hate to start this piece on a solemn note, but Brooklyn's success comes down to the strength of their star player's right leg; that ceiling will be pushed up or down by the miracles of modern medicine.

  • NetsDaily: Mikhail Prokhorov looked at Knicks as well as Nets, but James Dolan wanted 'bizarre sum.'

    In a story on Mikhail Prokhorov's decade as Nets owner, Prokhorov's top basketball adviser Sergei Kushchenko tells TASS the Russian oligarch initially looked at the Knicks and Suns as well as the Nets.

    "Prokhorov started toying with the idea of purchasing an NBA team back in 2007," said Kushchenko who was his GM at CSKA Moscow and member of the Nets board. "And in 2008, during the Summer Olympics in Beijing, we were already holding negotiations on this issue with NBA Commissioner David Stern.

    "We were looking over various options at that time," Kushchenko continued.

  • Elite Sports NY: Brooklyn Nets: D'Angelo Russell's 3-point shot is still 'loading'

    When General Manager Sean Marks brought young D'Angelo Russell into the Brooklyn Nets fold, he had a leader in mind.

    The Nets have seen that, in more areas than one. He's their leading scorer, and locker room leader all the same.

    In the first 12 games, Russell lead the team to a 5-8 start. An impressive start for a team that finished 20-62 in the 2016-2017 season.

    Out of the gate, he was playing well, slightly improved from his recent days as a Laker. He was growing better by the game until the Nets pulled him out for arthroscopic knee surgery in November.
