Yep. Well this sucks. Nets lose to the 2012-13, 24-58 Cleveland Cavaliers with effective additions of Jarrett Jack, the fat rookie Anthony Bennett and 8 minutes contributed by the bowling pro, Andrew Bynum. I do not think Deron Williams was injuring during the course of the game, SO WHY DIDN'T HE PLAY IN THE FINAL 12 MINUTES? Being a Nets fan for my entire life, I may be somewhat bias.
The officiating was dreadful, straight garbage. Whether they were no-calls or shit-calls, late in the 4th quarter, prior to intentional fouling, the refs appeared to placed their bet in Vegas. After Reggie went "2-2" on his foul shots, at 11:34 in the 4th, all the way to Kyrie's legitimate foul at 3:35, the Nets won the foul-battle, tallying 8 fouls, while Cleveland was called for one shooting foul, and was it BS that the single foul was a shooting on the adept charity stripe shooter, Mr. Reggie Evans. Whatever... that was annoying. Very. But there was more.
As a huge Jason Kidd fan, like any NEW JERSEY Net fan obviously is, and always has been since the Marbury trade, you get angry when PLAYER Jason Kidd gets tipsy and drives illegally, thereupon COACH Jason Kidd receives the suspension. Whatever. At least we get former Net coach, Lawrence Frank to show his potential at the primary assistant coach. Right?? Wrong. "Hello Joe Prunty!" To that 9999 out of 10000 nets fans reply, "Who?" You know, Joe Prunty! The listed fifth assistant coach to facilitate Señor Kidd. Whatever.
So his rotation was pitiful, his knowledge and ability to comprehend or estimate the time that Pierce, Garnett, or really any starter, made it appear that Prunty was pulling a Mark Zuckerberg and not giving his full attention and instead supplying the team with the minimal amount. The guy plain and simple looked lost. If he wanted to play Brooklyn's probable MVP, Deron Williams for an exact 22 minutes, why did he need to spend 100% of those minutes in the initial 3 quarters? Whatever. And yeah that was a Social Network quote.
Plus Paul Pierce's jumper to tie the ball game succeeding Varejao's go-ahead bucket, was a straight-up awful decision, especially with 14 seconds on the shot clock. I know, I know. If Pierce had made that shot, this whole article would be entirely different, or possibly not even exist, and I'd be praising Pierce for several different things that occurred on that play and inside the immaculate mind of the perfect Paul Pierce. But no. He missed, so now I must reiterate the dislike that I currently obtain involving one by the name of Joe Prunty. Whatever.
The players didn't play so well, but the rotation was inadequate, the refs were horrendous, and WHERE THE HELL WAS DERON WILLIAMS? Whatever. The Net Player of the game is, duh, Joe Prunty. Maybe his lineup problems and the lack of DERON FRICKEN WILLIAMS wasn't noted by other fans, but to lose to a 24 win 2013 team, in the 2014 season is a bad way to start or alleged extravagant season. Whatever. Lets go Lawrence Frank vs. LeBron. Whatever.
