Brooklyn Nets Can’t Play Jeremy Lin 48 Minutes

Posted on 19 Oct, 2016, by in NBA

Heading into the final preseason game, the Brooklyn Nets seem to be in a bit of a bind. Their big free agency signing of the offseason, Jeremy Lin, is doing as good and even better than expected. The rest of the team? Maybe the concern is for nothing because this is ‘just the preseason’, but the finale against the New York Knicks could use a little bit of confidence building for certain players and the fans.

Posted on 18 Oct, 2016, by in NBA

While the Brooklyn Nets can take comfort that it’s still the preseason, their constant struggles when turning away from anything that involves Jeremy Lin, and their inability to get Brook Lopez into any kind of groove, has to be just a little bit worrisome for Kenny Atkinson. More

Brooklyn Nets Offense Promising With Jeremy Lin; Interior Defense is a Problem

Posted on 12 Oct, 2016, by in NBA

The Brooklyn Nets started slowly and had a bad third quarter, losing 121-100 to the Miami Heat in their third preseason game. Jeremy Lin looked good after resting in the previous game, and the offense clicked most of the time during his minutes, but there’s a bigger defensive problem for this team when Brook Lopez doesn’t play.

Jeremy Lin Can Turn Nets vs Knicks Into a Serious Rivalry

Posted on 10 Oct, 2016, by in Featured, NBA

The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will play each other four times in the regular season. That means Jeremy Lin being asked about Carmelo Anthony before every game, and the other way around. But in a league that’s starving for more rivalries, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. More

Brooklyn Nets: Jeremy Lin & the Two-Position Player Concept

Posted on 6 Oct, 2016, by in NBA

In our second look at the Brooklyn Nets right before their first preseason game of the 2016-2017 NBA season, we focus on the team making up for some of their more glaring weaknesses by trying to use as many two-position players as possible (and maybe even three). Jeremy Lin is part of that stock, although it’s doubtful his role on offense will change very much: The Nets don’t have another playmaker like him, and their main hope of not being a doormat this season connects directly to him doing well as the team’s point guard.
