Can we start Marcus Williams and play Devin Harris off the bench just to see how he does? because if he does start, all he gonna do is mess up the game, I don’t think we should rush him back to the court that quick, because you never know with ankle sprains, they never go away sometimes, so we better be save than sorry, furthermore I would wanna see how Marcus does this time in probably his last start of the season.

Ah yes, we’re playing the Bucks remember? Probably the scariest team on earth right now, They have a pyscho looking coach, a gay star in Michael Redd, a hairless Villanueva, a blabbering Bogut, a disgruntled Charlie Bell who can’t shoot even for money, a Chinese in Yi, a bad free throw shooter in Mason, a dude from the Netherlands Gadzuric, oddballs make a team and there you have it, the Milwaukee Bucks.

While Magloire is still wondering why he didn’t get the minutes he was supposedly promised, I myself did some wondering too, I wonder if Vince Carter tonight has what it takes to stop Michael Redd as watching him shoot his way to the win against the Cavs, I have to say that the Bucks are red hot right now. Bogut may never live up to his no.1 pick billing but then again, he is more than a match for Boone and Boone will have to step it up tonight. As for Diop, there’s tons of people out there who’s saying he’s the sleeper in the trade for Kidd, and I agree, all he does is just sleep during games. Why?? because Lawrence Frank ain’t gonna give him no minuteshe’s gonna play 5 player 40 minutes and give the reast of the 50 minutes to be shared among the rest. Sleeper indeed.


Regular Season Game 56: Hello, Marcus Williams February 24, 2008

Posted by netsophobia in Central Division, Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers, Marcus Williams, New Jersey Nets, reviews, Vince Carter.

I’m telling you, if the Nets plays like this every game for the rest of the season, they would be very hard to beat, but then again this game is against the Pacers, one of those teams that we should really beat, so it doesn’t really say much.

Right now, the equation is Marcus Williams plays good, Nets win, and when even the best player on the opposing team says you’re good, it means you’re really good, and if Marcus keeps this up by just shooting less jumpers and focusing on passing the basketball which in the meantime allows Vince to get back more into scoring, this is the result we would probably get.

New Jersey Nets' Vince Carter shoots over Indiana Pacers' David Harrison, right, during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game Saturday night, Feb. 23, 2008, in East Rutherford, N.J.

And when Vince starts scoring, the pressure on RJ lessens and he can get into the scoring act as well, with 36 points, and when RJ and Vince are clicking, other players gets open as well, as for this instance its Josh Boone, finishing with a strong double double, the missing Kidd link we needed to replace isn’t Kidd’s scoring, it’s his passing, not his rebounding or his scoring, when he rebounds, Kidd made other bigs from not being able to rebound and carve out their spots, with him gone, we see guys like Boone grabbing a whole lot of borads together with VC and Nachbar, I think the 55-37 rebounding advantage is one of the biggest we’ve got this season.

With Marcus Williams taking over from Kidd, it’s not about replacing Kidd’s his scoring, we all know that Kidd’s shooting woes, and the amount of shots he takes, Marcus is obviously a better shooter right now, so he should seriously just focus on the passing instead of trying to score too much, where we could see in this game 13 assists equals victory, and add in the fact tha Travis Diener is on Marcus, which makes his job easier.

The bench couldn;t hit a shot even if they wanted to, but I like the Trenton Hassell, Boki Nachbar punch coming off the bench, defense and offense from, I haven’t seen much from Maurice Ager, but if the scouting reports are what it says it is, the atlhtlecism and speed is a very ineresting package. Tonight was a good win against the Pacers and it puts us at 26-31, 2 games behind the Bullets.

New Jersey Nets (24-31)
Indiana Pacers (22-33)

Hah, You know what, when you dont play him, just waive him, that’s what the Nets did with Jamaal Magloire, and this time his situation is even worse than Marc Jackson, at least Jackson got us Boki Nachbar, Magloire gave us tons of promises and he couldn’t even deliver half of it, thanks to the coaching staff nontheless, it’s quite hard to prove your point when your’re only playing 8 minutes per game yeah.

The Pacers beat us last night in Indiana even with a strong night from both RJ and Boki Nachbar, but this will be the third game in which there’s no Jason Kidd in the line up, and Lawrence Frank still wants Vince to man the point? Marcus Williams is back and running already so why can’t he just let Marcus play the point, and let Vince revert to his scoring ways?

It’s pretty much obvious that Stromile Swift won’t get alot of minutes under Frank because Frank loves stiff bigs, but aganst the Pacer bigs, athletic bigs are our advantage, I don’t see no Troy Murphy blocking Sean Williams’ dunk attempt, that won’t happen, Marcus Williams against Travis Diener is a mismatch and it would bode well for the team if they attacked this matchup, Diener is nothing compared to Williams’ speed.

We have to start playing steady basketball and pick up wins to move in at least into the sixth position in the East to avoid getting a team like Detroit, and these are one of those games where we should capitalize on, Sean Williams on Danny Granger would be seriously interesting.

Regular Season Game 18: They do read this damn Blog December 5, 2007

Posted by netsophobia in Central Division, Cleveland Cavaliers, Jason Kidd, LeBron James, NBA talk, New Jersey Nets, Recap.

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James (L) jokes with New Jersey Nets Jason Kidd during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Cleveland December 4, 2007. REUTERS/Aaron Josefczyk (UNITED STATES)
Hey Jay, wanna come over to my team? I can work out a package for us to play together
Kidd: I dont know man, I mean your team is a piece of shit without you and I don’t wanna play with Damon Jones or someone named Boobie, ew
LeBron: look, they’re all small fries, I can get them waived, you only need to say yes
Kidd: Er, I hate Eastern Europeans too
LeBron: Not a problem, one blink of an eye, and they never existed
Kidd: I don’t like South Americans
LeBron: We’re retracting back the offer to resign that fro
Kidd: Then I don’t think I’m coming
LeBron: Why?
Kidd: That would just leave me, you Drew Hair Gooden and fucking Larry Hughes? no thanks

Obviously Obviously that some people at the Net do read this blog because they fucking responded to somethings taht I ranted about yesterday want some proof? I’ll show you some.

Proof number one
Richard Jefferson read this damn blog and went out there, bullied the Cavs who were without LeBron with 36 points and totally painstakingly shot me in the heart and telling me fuck you, I’m mean.

Proof number two
Ed Stefanski signed those crap shit players and now he’s off to Philly running away from his sins

Proof number three
After SIX FUCKING STRAIGHT DNPS, Jamaal Magloire finally got minutes with 20, more than the expected five or less,he responded with a double 7 and continues to show us that practice doesn’t make perfect, 1-4 from the line, Collins showed him up tonight

Proof number four
Malik Allen went out and shot more jumpers trying to piss me off but he redeemed himself by grabbing nine boards and blocking 2 shots wow.

Proof number five
Fucked up Collins is going trigger happy, since when does he start taking 18 foot jumpers and have six shot attempts per night? he even made 75% of his FTs, that’s virtually impossible, something that only happends when you watch Peter Pan, and Collins is Peter Pan, maybe he’s playing well because he got his tooth back from the tooth fairy.

Proof number six
Unnamed backups like Eddie Gill stepping up in garbage time although I did not mentioned their names yesterday, I obviously held a grudge against them

Proof number seven
Larry Frankfurters finally got his act together and played those players that he should have played, yeah the Cavs are without LBJ, but this rotation got us into one of our best shooting games of the season, and that’s saying a fucking whole lot of stuff.

Proof that they do not read my blog no.1
Vince Carter obviously wants people from PNG to call him a slut, but the good thing is he finally broke out of his trance by going 3-5 from three point land tonight, still he sounds like a worn out almost max half franchise player who is eating too much and not asserting himself.

Proof that they do no read my blog no.2
Who’s the man that was suppsoed to be on Shannon Brown? this fuck made Devin Brown look more idiotic than he already is, why isn’t anyone on him? nobody’s guarding him and we’re letting him run loose? we’re only lucky he settled for three pointers more.

Proof that they do not read my blog no.3
Antoine Wright got injured, yeah right, what’s next? Jason Collins got a bum testicle?

Am I happy bout the W? Of course I am, any wins on the road are pluses, and the home woes, it’s gonna settle down somehow, I actually think that our form at home is actually due to the new name of the damned building, we goes to the IZOD, how dumb does that sound? that doesn’t even sound like a winning building, although SBC Center sounds equally lame, Why do they even bother giving arenas such generic names, things like that just wastes peoples memory to remember them, I probably wasted around 10 megabytes from my brain just to type and remember all this shit.

Obviously somebody forgot to leave a memo for the Cavs to ask them not to fucking throw the game away when it’s still a game, but then again when your team leader’s Eric Snow and Damon Jones, all you can do is just shut up and man up and lose the game, the troll Pavlovic didn’t even had a say in his own toilet case.

Look, I know that’s a bad outburst of sorts, but dude, we’re 1/5 into the season but the team’s still having lineup issues? I deserve that outburst, I got my rights, I watch the Family Guy and I hate George Bush, sue me. Anyway, over the years, well, after Damon Jones signed with the Cavs, we get to see his relationship with LeBron dwindle, from having that gayish handshake to almost kissing each other..

To LeBron finally adknowledging that Damon Jones’ talents are better suited for playing in that professional league in Tahiti, and to the point where LeBron ends any verbal contact with Jones thru a simple yet defnining word, well two words, fuck off.

Maybe LeBron was pissed at Damon Jones trying to chew a piece of his market, you know, the China shoe market, the Nike Zooms vs the Damon Jones brand, 1% is alot in China, somewhere like a million maybe, imagine a million people wearing Damon Jone’s signature shoe, it’s like Earth being invaded by mutated toilet seats right out Jason Collins’ apartment window. Scary. Next thing we’re gonna know is Damon Jones launching his own apparel brand and calling it Jonesihana, challenging top brands like GAP and whatever. Ew

I bet nobody knew that the last time these two teams met, Isiah Thomas was up somewhere calling some roughed up nut sack to rough someone up, and if anyone would bother the guess who the person is, the answer would come out glaring at you, Aleksandar Pavlovic, wow, big deal. dude can’t even keep to his word to play in Europe and heck he resigns for maybe even less, all hail Varejao! Remember the time when LeBron said that anybody on his team would be successful, well we’ve got a perfect example already, look at Larry Hughes, he suck but obviously he’s enjoying life right now with the money that was supposed to be Michael Redd’s, instead he’s got all the money now and he’s using them to buy more lotions because he thinks that the Sun in Ohio is to hot for his liking, he misses D.C for fucks sake, Free Larry.

Drew Gooden is probably the classiest of players among the Cavs, look he doesn’t wear weird suits, he doesn’t suck, he doesn’t act hurt like someone, he isn’t Lithuanian, and most importantly he doesn’t bite his fingers like he hadn’t ate anything for a century. BUT, he does have his ultra weird hair sense that could only possibly come out from a Cleveland Cavalier. Damn, no wonder Bron rooted for the Red Sox. Nobody told Homer Simpson that he was actually like Big Zy when he was young, just that he turned out yellow and had a big belly to go with.

Ignore all the crap above, We all know that the Cavs suck (wll, at least I know), BEAT THE CAVS, whom I hope are playing without LeBron who probably is depressed because he couldn’t bite his sprained finger or something. Besides, the Cavs are in a losing streak of their own, plus without Lebron James, their team is err err errr errr as good as ours, well although technically we’re no longer the lowest scoring team in the league but our offense still suck and their defense is excellent, so all the luck from heaven and hell to the Nets to save me from sidebar updating duty for another day, Good lord.

Regular Season Game 17: Beatdown and Where the hell is Jamaal Magloire? December 4, 2007

Posted by netsophobia in Central Division, Chauncey Billups, Detroit Pistons, Jason Kidd, NBA talk, New Jersey Nets, Recap.

AUBURN HILLS, MI - DECEMBER 2:  Jason Kidd #5 of the New Jersey Nets talks with Chauncey Billups #1 the Detroit Pistons during a game on December 2, 2007 at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Michigan.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and/or using this photograph, User is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement.

Billups: Man, your team suck big time, just go to L.A
Kidd: I wanna build my legacy here in NJ, L.A’s no shit
Billups: But don’t you get tired of playing with Jason Collins? I mean you used to get excited playing with athletic bigs like KMart but now Collins? At least you do have Sean Williams now, that’s a consolation
Kidd: Actually, I tried poisoning Jason Collins’ soup more than five times already…
Billups: What the fuck???
Kidd: Yeah, Five times, this season alone.

Fuck the niceties

Okay this is it, Lawrence Frank is a fucking hypocrite, I don’t like to spew out obscene languages (yeah right) but this has gone too fucking far, first you sign a guy to a 4 million dollar contract and all he does is shoot free throws during practice and warm the chairs so Jason Collins could sit on it? I mean What the Fuck? this team’s getting burned on the boards and probably the best rebounder on the team is sitting at the end of the bench sulking and waiting to get into the game and play for like what 5 minutes? even Malik Allen is getting more burn than Magloire and that’s saying alot you fuckhole. Second, you don’t go around talking to the media about how JMag’s got a chance competing for the starting center spot and then sit him down for 6 straight DNPs, that’s just bullshit, remember Marc Jackson? this is on a bigger scale, at least you didn’t half promise a starting role for that prick, but you did for Magloire, man up like a man that you are and stop hiding behind lollipops, at least give us a fucking reason why he isn’t starting; You bitch.

Obviously I would wanna blame the loss on Magloire not playing, but that’s not the case because if Mag’s playing, we would just end up losing uglier. All those crap about Jason Maxiell that’s just bullshit, even if it’s Michael Olowokandi, he could have had his way with this frontline all night, let alone Maxiell, I don’t like to give credit that’s why. Besides, when your starting 4 and 5 had a grand total of 4 rebounds the entire game? Wouldn’t it be better to say that Robert Swift is the best center in the world? I mean Jerome James would look like an MVP playing against this frontline, that’s how bad they were buillied last night, spare me those ferocious dunks from Maxiell or that spacing defense crap that Collins gives everynight, we need big bruisers and athletic bigs like Seano and Mag, not assholes like Malik Allen who just shoots jumpers to death, something like a black version of Brian Cardinal, ugly.

You think I’m being harsh? well obviously I saved all my anger from the Memphis game and typed them all out tonight, you would think that Magloire could at least get some garbage time minutes but NOOO… Lawrence Frank’s had other ideas my friend, he ain’t gonna give Mag no minutes, he’s gonna go small and let Detroit look like the best frontcourt on earth. Shit, I shouldn’t have watched the game, because even if I did, the whole memory recollection of the game was hearing myself saying FUCK each time Jason Collins shot the basketball or did something, whom I have no idea why but is onto some crazy revenge rage and is hell bent on scoring the basketball,  fuck you man, first you dont score for 13 games, you didnt even bothered attempting one, and suddenly you wanna be Desegana Diop getting dunks and touches round the basket? I can only note that Jason Collins was probably pumped up by the fact that his twin, Jarron appeared on the NBA Top 10 Countdown and he was hyped, shit that sounded crazy.

Okay then there’s Antoine Wright and Bostjan Nachbar; look, I know Toine that you’re a reborned player this season, your playing for a contract, you can shoot threes and make them now, but why spoil it at there? people are starting to respect your jumpshot, that’s your weapon show us some A&M stuff by going to the hole, stop jacking threes, by my count that’s 9 straight three pointers you missed? what you’re turning into Antoine Walker? drive to the hole, like please, score inside then outside, not the other way round, you want your contract, you gotta play like you earned that contract man. Same goes to Nachbar, I don’t care how good you can shoot, if you just keep hanging around the perimeter shooting threes, you’re in line to be the next Donyell Marshall, and at least Marshall’s had some strong seasons, you had none, somebody has to limit Nachbar to three 3s per game, just like the game yesterday so taht he doesn’t get to full of himself and starts going Stojakovic on us.

The last time I threw flak on RJ was???? A week ago, correction make it a minute ago, as you can see, everybody including myself is hyped about how RJ’s finally becoming a star that he is, but dude, I don’t know why, you just don’t have that takeover aura in you, yes no doubt you can score, but you gotta have that killer mentality, the brutality, go kill some chickens brutally, get that aura and start scaring your opponents, man no one is respecting yuo right now, look at Marcus Williams, he’s jeering at you and you don’t give no shit, the rumors bout your gay romance didn’t help too. Jason…16 assists well wasted, but the good thing is 35 baskets on 28 assists, that’s teamwork on a losing game, Vince, you just keep that up and people’s gonna call you from Papua New Guinea calling you a slut, and I’m not gonna yap around how delighted I am at Sean Williams’ performance because that’s the least I expect from him now, he’s the saviour of this team.

Can I add that this fucking game against the Pistons just sums up how fucked up Lawrence Frank actually is, just because the team again, struggled to score in the second and third quarter, he’s going to start Antoine again and put Vince on the bench with his Carribean reasoning of Vince can light up the 2nd quarter, which would also avoid those droughts, yo, over here, tell you what, If the team were to take better shots, shoot less jumpers, defend better there wouldn’t be a need to throw the highest paid player on the team to come off the bench, we don’t see Dallas playing Dirk Nowitzki off the bench, stick to you guns, or sweets, just because it didn’t work for one single fucking game, okay maybe a few, that doesn’t mean it’s not going to work in the next game, give it some continuity, your spoiling the synergy of the players, same goes to your fucked up player rotation, don’t be like Don Nelson, you don’t even have a big belly.

I just hate Detroit. and New York, my condolences to you Steph, I hope your dad’s death could smack some sense into you and turn you back into the player that you are er maybe seven years ago? at least no more 4 dimes and 4 assists.


(edit: I don’t hate Lawrence Frank, am just pissed, peace out =))
