As a die-hard Brooklyn Nets fan, I was utterly disgusted in their Game 7 performance on against the Bulls. It was abysmal. The Nets played practically zero defensive, missed open shot after open shot, and worst of all, they didn’t show enough effort down the stretch.
I don’t want to harp on the loss though. I want to talk about what the Nets can do this offseason to improve as a team.
General Manager Billy King announced on Sunday that interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo will not return next season to coach the Nets.
P.J. did a decent job this year, but King made the right move here. Carlesimo is a good coach, but he isn’t the right coach for the Nets. The Nets were out-toughed in Game 7, especially on the glass. Whoever coaches the Nets next season will have to be able to toughen this squad up, and put a much bigger emphasis the defensive end of the court.

With six consecutive seasons of amazing playoff performances, since the Big Three comprising Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, and Kevin Garnett was created by the Boston Celtics, the team has failed to pass even through the first round of the playoffs. After some good performances in the previous years, this has been the team’s earliest exit ever from the playoffs of the Big Three era. A large number of Boston Celtics fans and basketball enthusiasts received a big blow when their team took an unexpected beating at the hands of the Knicks. Moreover, several people who love to wager on basketball or bet on sports did not stand a chance to win either through sports betting at www.wageronsports.com or any other betting websites. Betting lines, sports odds and all online sports wagering work in the same manner. The Celtics may be a team that deserved the bet America placed on them because of their never-say-die attitude, but clearly, they have lots of work to do in the off-season.

Carmelo flipped his lid. Can you blame him? This lowlife by the name of Kevin Garnett said that his precious LaLa tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios! As if! How would this punk know how this queen tastes? Balderdash, I say! He was merely trying to get under Carmelo’s skin. While Melo is taking the high road (LOL J/K, he waited for KG by the Celtics’ team bus to have a word or two with him.), we at TSB don’t roll like that. Well, I can’t speak for everyone. I’m the one taking the low road here. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty. Don’t worry, Melo. I got you. Read the rest of this entry »
Chase, Paul, Iman and Derrick.....Can you feel the excitement?!?!?
Chase Budinger, Derrick Williams, Paul George and Iman Shumpert. Seriously?
The NBA couldn’t even get the best player from the city hosting the All-Star Game to participate. They couldn’t get a former dunk contest champion. They couldn’t even get “Superman”.
You have…..1 unheard voice message…..”Hey Dwight, it’s David Stern. Uh, listen…I know you are probably going to bolt from the Magic Kingdom after the season, but could you help an old buddy out and at least give Magic fans the feeling that there’s still a 1% chance you are going to return by demolishing 3 scrubs in the dunk contest next week? Thanks Dwight, call me back ASAP.”
