Off-Season Report

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #20

Last time around for the off-season. Monday's Media Day begins the pre-season. So last time around for Off-Season Reports, too. We wistfully big farewell to the Greatest Off-Season Ever, make fun of James Dolan, and generally have a good time.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #19

In the Off-Season Report, we look at the personality of two acquisitions: Paul Pierce and Andrei Kirilenko, the leader and the defender. We chronicle Big Shot Bojan, hope for the best in Springfield. It won't be easy and offer congratulations.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #18

This week, we take a look at who's at PNY Center working out; how despite a supposed lack of flexibility and few picks, the Nets have beefed up the basketball operations staff, big time; The Prokhorov Effect ... on free agents;some random notes, etc.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #17

We open this weekend about KD, now repped by Jay Z (or maybe we should say JZ for the purposes of this paragraph). He talked this week about how much he loves OKC "as of today." Is that an opening for a discussion of him as a Net? Of course.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #17

we examine what little news there was this week, including the decision to train down south at Duke and hold a workout for training camp invites, tell what we hear about the new head coach, etc., etc.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #16

We do a little basketball, a little business in this edition of the Off-Season Report, including how Paul Pierce's comments on the Knicks are backed up by domination; a look at the LA adventure, the coaching staff, and Nets' in-roads into Manhattan.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #15

We write this week about how to respond to Knick fans duncery, offering point-by-point rebuttals that rise above their "you suck." We also look at who broke what stories this off-season, Eurobasket, Nassau Coliseum, etc.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #14

We love Paul Pierce. We spend a lot of our report this week on his comments about the Nets needing to run the city. We look at the possibilities, the history, etc. as well as the first camp invite's potential, Russian TV and being "hacked."

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #13

Off-Season is half over! So for the next TWO MONTHS, what do we have to look forward to, other than endless ESPN breakdowns of players and teams, using increasingly arcane metrics? FIBA Europe "friendly" games? Players holiday pics? Oh, the wait!

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #12

So new? We argue the Nets' spending can be justified because of their unique position. We look at the latest numbers: payroll, luxury tax, age, uniforms. We review Alan Anderson's close relationship with KG and wonder about training camp invites.


NetsDaily Off-Season Report #11

It seems the off-season is winding down early, with the roster set unless Billy King gets itchy fingers and starts punching that well-worn touch screen on his iPhone. So, this week we focus on the press conference and a few other things, like a video

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #10

This week, we're all about going after those trying to steal our joy, the pundits who are shocked, awed and appalled at the basketball ATM that is Mikhail Prokhorov and the cranky GMs who want an investigation now, goddamnit, of Andrei Kirilenko.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #9

This week, we look at a lot of things, trying to sum up the week's events and also look back to see where we stand, particularly what could possibly go wrong. We're not saying it will. Not saying that. Nope, not us, just doing our due diligence.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #8

This week we take a deep breath and for the second week in a row, offer the only word available to sum things up: WOW! Even more than the signing of Jason Kidd as head coach 127 hours after he retired, the trade or THE TRADE is soooo exciting.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #7

It is now crunchtime. Over the next three weeks, the Nets will be wheeling and dealing, trying to get to the next level. In our latest Off-Season report, we offer Kris Humphries trade options, our pick for the 22nd pick and other helpful hints.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #6

This week, we try to wrap our heads around the concept of "Coach Kidd," devoting most of the Off-Season Report to his hiring, particularly the rift between pundits and players on Kidd's elevation. One group is skeptical, the other ecstatic.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #5

We reveal who we think is the mystery man, the coaching candidate that has complicated the Nets search, the person whose elevation would be shocking. We think it's No. 5. The rest isn't as important.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #4

In this week's Off-Season Report, we examine a Russian law that requires political candidates to divest their foreign holdings. Not to worry. Our Draft Sleeper is a Dukie. Seth Jones talks about Popeye on ice. Best wishes for Mookie's recovery.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #3

This week, we look at some salary cap options on Bojan Bogdanovic, a draft sleeper who could be the first Russian player of the Prokhorov era, P.J.'s lament; our response to the latest calumny; the birth of the oculus and what TV ratings tell us

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #2

We look at what's going on with the coaching search, post some draft notes, peer into the future of commuting from Manhattan and New Jersey to Brooklyn, examine how the Nets are aggressively marketing the Islanders and review the Emory College thing.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #1

We said we wouldn't do this again. Made playoffs, Off-Season Report goes away. Very binary. But enough of you, that would be two of you, ask that we continue. So we'll give it a shot. No guarantees. Here it is, draft sleeper of the weeks and all.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #23

we look at numbers from Friday re: the lack of congestion and unruly behavior; share what we hear about who's doing well; update roll-outs; congratulate Jake Appleman on his book contract to pen the definitive history of the Nets; plus a final note.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #22

From this moment on, there will be no shortage of drama. The arena opened on Friday. On Monday, night, the season ticket-holders will get their first view and if others want a peek inside, the...

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #21

In our Off-Season Report this week, we take a look at the last free agency issues, check out some statement games, try our hand at a depth chart, etc.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #20

in our latest Off-Season Report, we examine Andray Blatche's past and hope for the future, the Nets latest roster math, Mirza Teletovic's toughness, our best guess on the new uniform; an examination of what Prohorov promised and delivered, etc.

NetsDaily Off-Season Report #19

It's getting exciting. It's September 1. On October 1, training camp opens (for the next to last time in New Jersey). On November 1, the Brooklyn Nets will battle the New York Knicks, the first time two New York teams have faced each other since 1977
