The Brooklyn Nets looked like a team needing as much construction as the Gowanus Expressway in 2013, but have cruised up the Eastern Conference standings like a driver in the HOV lane in 2014 as Michael Scotto outlined in his latest column.
Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have made it easier for Carmelo Anthony to consider leaving in free agency.
Before the Knicks and Nets hit the hardwood on Friday, Scotto joined “Between the Lines” on WPRB 103.3 FM in Princeton, N.J. with host Sitesh Shah to discuss how the Nets have turned the corner in 2014 and preview possible playoff scenarios, along with Carmelo Anthony’s free agency plans and what Knicks management will look to do this offseason, including adding a new head coach.
The Brooklyn Nets entered the season with championship expectations and one of the most talented rosters on paper. However, Brooklyn has failed to meet those lofty expectations and the roster has failed to develop chemistry thanks largely to injuries.
Michael Scotto covers the Nets for Sheridan Hoops as an NBA columnist. In this podcast with FOX Sports Radio he examines Brooklyn’s bleak 2014 outlook and if it’s time to sell at the trade deadline or hold onto the core pieces for another run next season at full strength.
Scotto joined Chris Rix and Arnie Spanier of FOX Sports Radio to detail Brooklyn’s rapid decline

Cinema Royale host Travis Hopson is joined by Fishing without Nets director Cutter Hodierne, winner of the Best Directing award for Drama at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people."
"Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.
Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."
and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon's partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now on you will fish for people."

We have quite the interesting post up today from Evan Abrams, known on Twitter as @Betropolitan, who lists the odds -- and they are very long odds -- on anybody other than the Indiana Pacers or Miami Heat emerging from the Eastern Conference. You can even get 40-1 odds on the Detroit Pistons, who have defeated both of those conference powerhouses.
Those are the same odds listed for the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks, who both have major problems on their hands and no easy solutions.
In this interview with Jody MacDonald on WFAN in New York, we hit on the problems of the local teams, what the silver lining is for each of them, and what can be done via trade or via patience for the Knicks and Nets to turn their seasons around.
We've been told for years that an openly gay player on a pro sports team would be a terrible distraction and undermine a team's ability to win. Yet the Brooklyn Nets are 8-2 with him - that's their second-best 10-game streak of the season. Does it matter that Collins hasn't played many minutes?
And the Myrtle Beach Mutiny pro soccer team signed out gay player Anton Hysen. That's in South Carolina. How much does this tell us about how far pro sports have come?
