Brooklyn's Jeremy Lin will undergo evaluation of right knee in New York Thursday, league source tells ESPN. Tremendous concern on injury.

"Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin suffered a patellar tendon rupture and will miss rest of season, source tells ESPN."


Lin will miss rest of the season...that pick just got better for those Cavs.   >:( >:( >:(

Eh, I feel really bad for Lin but I don't see this thread as necessary anymore.

Not necessary, no, but the better the Nets play, the worse the pick will be for Cleveland so I still see keeping an eye on Brooklyn as worthwhile.

Lots of talk about the Suns, but after watching the Bulls play against the Spurs.... Pretty confident BRK won't have best odds again this year.

Nets beat the hawks today 116-104

Crabbe dropped 20 and Russell went 16/10

Still think Lakers getting rid of Russell was premature

Remember, the Lakers got rid of the next two years of Mozgov’s deal, when they hope to create double max free agent room.  The Mozgov deal is terrible — they sold a little low on Russell perhaps, but they had limited assets of value they could use to dump that deal.

The premature aspect in my mind was as much that they moved Mozgov this summer rather than next summer, when they might actually have need of max room.

well that's why the Lakers are bad. They got into  that mosgov deal that hurt them later. Bad GM decisions trickle down and make you do other bad decisions

Nets beat the terrible Hawks. This is the hope. The Nets are bad but if they can be better than the likes of the Hawks they can drag themselves out of the bottom 5.

This strategy totally blew up when Westbrook resigned in OKC.  It will go completely down in flames if OKC can pull off an upset over GSW.

In general, trading a 20 year old prospect, former #2 overall pick, to move a horrible contract so you can create future cap space to hopefully sign free agents is a terrible move.  I think they traded him because they wanted Lonzo Ball and didn't want two young PGs on their roster.  Getting rid of Mozgov's deal was a bonus for them.

One more reason, hint - DeSnitchello.

Lavert impressed me with his off the dribble/driving game. Solid NBA body too. Even with Lin out, they have enough guys that can be somewhat effective with the ball in their hands.
