Podcast on the new Nets

Interesting Podcast on the new look Nets. Obviously, these guys don't fully understand JLin and the impact he can make. Trust me, these Nets writers will be amazed and blown away this season.

Podcast with JJ & more

JJ Reddick has future in broadcasting for sure. Could also be a future Net as he is a free agent next year and has a home in Brooklyn. Also, he didn't become a full time starter until his 8th year and has delt with stereotyping as well, which really helps him relate to JLin.


Nets ownership really gets it now after trying the quick fix route (see Knicks):

Like we said earlier, they need to keep this Steve Novak clone around:

Q & A and quick thought on roster

After looking over the revamped Nets roster, one thing that really stands out is how experienced it really is. Only one of my top 9 rotation players are under 26, RHJ at 21:

JLin 27
Brook 28
TBooker 28
Bojan 27
RHJ 21
Scola 36
GV 29
Foye 32
SK 26

Levert 21
CMcCollough 21

This team is actually ready to win now. If the young guys are ready, even better, but they won't be forced to produce right away as they have vets at each position ready to go.



Great Q & A from NY Post's Steve Serby with JLin:

Nets summer league evals

RHJ: impressive overall. D strong as expected but really surprised by good handles and excellent passing. He will surely be in rotation and a likely starter. Here is where Kenny's strong player development skills come in. If he improves his shot over the summer, which he has no confidence in right now, look out! Even without it, has so much in every other area.

Sean Kilpatrick: he played in the summer as he did at the end of last season. He can score in this league and will most likely be in rotation as Nets need his scoring. Able to get his own shot which not many others look like are able to do.

Chris McCollough: Athletic and raw, streaky but has a decent outside shot. I don't see him getting more than 10 minutes per game this season if that but could develop and contribute down the road. Or could be a trade piece.

Isaiah Whitehead: Strong and good body at about 220 lbs. But handle looked very shaky for supposed combo guard. Shot not there yet either. Looks like D league this year for him.

Beau Beech: Need to keep this guy in the organization some how. Great shooter for his size at about 6'8". But can't guard a lick. He could be a Steve Novak like player.

Jeremy Ready to Rock in BrookLin

With the introductory press conference coming up on Wednesday, Jeremy Lin is in Brooklyn early, working out at the Nets facility.

Nathan Gottlieb, one of the few National writers who really gets the "Jeremy Lin journey", gives a nice overview/preview for those who haven't been following closely.

Here's Uncle Nathan's writeup:
