THE NEW JERSEY NETS ARE NO MORE
After 35 years, the New Jersey Nets have played their final game. The franchise is headed to Brooklyn. There are fans of the New Jersey Nets who are profoundly sad their team is gone. I understand those people. They are me. I am them.
In tribute, my starting 5, All-Time Favorite Nets:
- Drazen Petrovic, SG - No words
- Kenny Anderson, PG - The Pride of Lefrak City, Queens, NY
- Derrick Coleman, C - He wasn’t really a center, but it works better for my gimmicky concept this way
- Buck Williams, PF - I knew Buck most as a Trail Blazer, but his best years were in New Jersey
- Dennis Hopson, SF - Proud son of Toledo, Ohio (my hometown)
Good night, New Jersey Nets. So long.
R.I.P. Drazen Petrovic. And R.I.P. New Jersey Nets. It’s been a great ride here in New Jersey. Farewell.
Deron Williams, who still holds the record for the fastest time in the Skills Competition (though that time as a Utah jazz member), failed to win after he missed ALL his shots.

Then Anthony Morrow did something extremely classy by pulling out the Drazen Petrovic jersey (RIP!) for the 3-Point shootout. But he ended up placing last, when he was picked as the favorite to win! Wadafaq.
But, at the end of the day, I ain’t even mad. Go Nets! :)
