Having grown up in the Bronx, I used to be a huge Yankee fan. Today I can't even name their middle infield.

Mike Mazzeo

He doesn't have to give us 49 points or his team's final 17 in a row. He's already done that. A ferocious dunk or two will do.

Mike Mazzeo

Without Reggie Evans or the Prince or the Dutchess, how will LeBron find motivation tonight?

Stefan Bondy

Ryan Meara is now available for NYCFC but Kreis tells me Josh Saunders has earned right to be starting keeper for "the foreseeable future."

Stefan Bondy

What will Kreis do without Velasquez and Williams? I'm thinking Wingert moves to left back, Siriboe starts at centerback, Calle on the wing

Mike Mazzeo

Mikhail Prokhorov comes in 29th in our ESPN owner rankings. Only James Dolan worse. #Nets #NYK espn.go.com/newyork/nba/st…

Rod Boone

Leave it to @Lenn Robbins to ask the new guy the only question that truly matters: instagram.com/p/0vI-5GoWS5/

Stefan Bondy

Sebastian Velasquez and Josh Williams officially ruled out of tomorrow's game for NYCFC. Williams back to limited training, though.

Devin Kharpertian

Why are people asking if Kentucky could beat an NBA team again? Have we not gotten past this?

Devin Kharpertian

Clark has played with five teams in five years, talked the struggle of sticking with a team: bkga.me/1yj4II5 “I deserve to be here.”

Rod Boone

Clark hadn't even spoken to Lionel Hollins yet by the time #Nets finished their morning shoot at Barclays. Was waiting to chat with him.

Rod Boone

Earl Clark on what he will bring to #Nets: "Whatever they need me to do out here to help them win games, then that's what I'm here to do."

Rod Boone

Earl Clark: "I'm just thankful for the opportunity. I've been waiting for it and I'm blessed." #Nets

Rod Boone

Earl Clark said he's surprised to be with #Nets. Said he was home working out when his agent called him and told him to come to Brooklyn.

This is a very good piece by @PabloTorre on the fall of Jeremy Lin, who owns a ceramic sushi clock, which I now want: es.pn/1F15bU8

Devin Kharpertian

Related: Jarrett Jack is friends with literally everybody who has ever played in the NBA.

Devin Kharpertian

Earl Clark said he learned about the team from Jarrett Jack, who he called a "good friend.”

Tom Lorenzo

Earl Clark appeared in 19 games with the Shandong Flaming Bulls (in China) during the 14-15 season. He averaged 26.7 points & 10.3 rebs per.

Tom Lorenzo

The Nets announce they've signed Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

Rod Boone

#Nets have signed forward Earl Clark to a 10-day contract. He'll wear No. 55

Tim Bontemps

And Earl Clark is here at shootaround. Won't be surprised if he gets time tonight.

Stefan Bondy

The Nets have signed forward Earl Clark on a 10-day contract.

Lenn Robbins

#nets have signed former #Louisville star Earl Clark.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets signed Earl Clark to a 10-day

Devin Kharpertian

Nets just signed Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets signed Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

Thought TJ McConnell was good when he was at Duquesne but can't believe he's turned into the player he's become at Arizona.

Settle down, Amin. I know you're grumpy from being stuck here today. And I trust @Dan Woike saying it's legit. twitter.com/aminespn/statu…

Actually, am told that it's not a fake account. twitter.com/kylekrat/statu…

Tim Bontemps

Should've known that was a fake account.

Tim Bontemps

I can't think of anyone who has ever confused me more than V Stiviano.

Tim Bontemps

Huge pair of wins for the Bucks over the Heat and Pacers, allowing them to once again get a firm grip on sixth place in the East.

Tim Bontemps

So with Milwaukee beating Indiana, the Nets are now in a three-way tie with Pacers, Hornets for ninth, half-game behind eighth place Celtics

Tim Bontemps

Sam Dekker certainly has played like he is a first round pick tonight.

Tim Bontemps

Beyond @Bill Walton being entertaining as always, this is some really great advice about how pointless rankings are. http://t.co/nccAPEtpQd

My god. Literally used to stay at a friend's place across the street from there during my early ESPN days. Hope no one hurt.

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez averaging 30.8-9.0-3.5 blocks on 65.8% shooting in the past week (four games). Good week, I’d say.

This is the best commercial I’ve ever seen, right down to the backwards jersey. youtube.com/watch?v=OqiJOP… (h/t deadspin.com/timofey-mozgov…)

They've been trying to trade him for years. But Brook Lopez is still here, carrying the #Nets down the stretch espn.go.com/blog/brooklyn-…

Mike Mazzeo

Nets' Young has strained knee, out vs. Cavs es.pn/1NjDEzr via @ESPNNewYork

Rod Boone

Looked worse at the time, but it's really good news for #Nets. As Deron said last night, they need Thad for the stretch run.

Rod Boone

#Nets say Thad's MRI revealed a left knee strain. He's out tomorrow vs. #Cavs and doubtful for Sunday's game vs. #Lakers.

Tim Bontemps

All things considered, that's as good an outcome as the Nets could have hoped for. Gives him a shot to be back for the final couple weeks.

Mike Mazzeo

Thad Young (left knee strain): out tomorrow and doubtful for Sunday per #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Nets announce Thaddeus Young has a left knee strain. Won't play against the Cavaliers, is doubtful to play against the Lakers.

Devin Kharpertian

Good news for Thad Young: MRI revealed only a strain. Out tomorrow, doubtful vs. Lakers.

Tim Bontemps

Our ESPN rankings have #Nets Lionel Hollins as the 23rd best coach. Best BK ranking so far.

Two years ago today, Kiara was diagnosed with stage 4 & given two years to live. Today, she’s studying for her PhD. Thanks, modern medicine.

Tim Bontemps

People shouldn't be throwing out Hunter S. Thompson comparisons for just about anything, & certainly not how they were today. Embarrassing.

Tim Bontemps

Wait the Spurs beat the Thunder by 39? What the hell happened?

Rod Boone

They are probably the same people who forget how bad the Yankees were and think they were always good before that dynasty run in the 90s.

Rod Boone

The people who want the playoff format changed must've never watched the NBA during the 80s when the West was horrible compared to the East.

Tim Bontemps

Brett Brown doesn't get nearly enough credit for the job he's doing with the Sixers. Team plays hard every night & wins more than it should.

Mike Mazzeo

All of these wonderful/exciting teams would be fighting like hell for the 11th spot in the West.

Mike Mazzeo

Race for eighth: 8. Boston (31-40), 9. Indiana (31-40), 10. Brooklyn (30-40), 11. Charlotte (30-40). Thankfully, this all ends soon.

Tim Bontemps

Regular season ends three weeks from today. Given how even all of these teams are, won't be surprised if it comes down to the final day.

Devin Kharpertian

Jeez: there are as many +.500 teams in the Southwest as there are in the entire Eastern Conference. (h/t @NBA_Reddit) http://t.co/1L1JELxW2e

Tim Bontemps

With the Wizards losing, there are eight teams in the West better than the top four in the East. There are 11 teams better than the top 8.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets (30-40) are now one-half game behind the #Celtics (30-41) and #Pacers (31-40) for the final playoff spot, tied with the #Hornets

Tim Bontemps

The death march for these final playoff spots in the East is something else. Four teams within .5 games of 8th are 9 & 10 games under .500.

Lenn Robbins

What does it say about the @Thaddeus Young that every #Nets player and coach came off the bench when he went down. Been w the team 6 weeks!

Lenn Robbins

#Nets Lopez the 1st player to score 26 or more pts & shoot 60-% or better from field in 4 straight games since LeBron James did so in 2013.

Devin Kharpertian

For immediate release to 29 NBA teams: The Spurs have been activated. Thanks for your entry and good luck next year.
