The Nets kick off a legendary season with a narrow victory over the depleted, hopeless New York Knicks. Highlights include: D’Angelo officially entering his name in the NBA MVP pool; Demare Carroll proving he still has at least half a season of vaguely competitive basketball left in him; Jarrett Allen not quite getting his first professional point; and Sean Kilpatrick going gentle into that good night.
Hurt that they weren’t invited to Nets Media Day, our two hosts lash out at the franchise that forgot them (and by lash out we actually mean discuss the very team that spurned them in excruciating detail).
No one who attended a Nets game last season will be surprised to learn that the team just reported a deficit of over $44 million. Nor will anyone be surprised that another pre-season ranking has the Nets coming in no better than 10th in a patently underwhelming Eastern Conference. What may surprise some, however, is that our two hosts chose to spend over an hour talking about these things (and this only after they consciously decided to speed things along). As always, thank you for your patience.
