SORT BY Relevancy
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
What's it like to write a book about an NBA team? Jake Appleman, author of Brooklyn Bounce, joins the Drive & Kick to talk about his experiences on the inside of the Nets move to Brooklyn from New Jersey. Appleman chronicled every aspect of the operation from the arrival of Deron Williams to the blockbuster deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.
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.
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?
Hosts: Martin Soaries, Tommy Hill, Jason & Lawrence Reels
