Alan Anderson moved to starting lineup, per team. Jack, Anderson, Johnson, Garnett, Plumlee.
Nets have arrived at Philips. Got here about 10 minutes ago.
So a poultry, meat and feed exposition is keeping the Nets from getting to Philips Arena. You can't make this stuff up.
Convention is the International Production & Processing Expo, "The world's largest annual poultry, meat & feed industry event of its kind."
Nets team bus is apparently stuck in traffic because of a farm convention.
Parts of Amar'e Stoudemire's body that are currently hurt: knee, ankle, wrist.
Just googled “local artisan barbecue sauce,” in case you were wondering where I live.
Apparently they are looking for the next Mr. Perdue here. A poultry technology convention has downtown ATL traffic even crazier than normal.
Mike Budenholzer on how many All-Stars he thinks Hawks should have: "I keep saying that my nine-year-old wants 15, so I’m sticking with it."
You can keep the same season days, trim to 70-72 games, eliminate B2B’s, restructure divisions, keep rivalries. I will die on this mountain.
Mason Plumlee and Bojan Bogdanovic will both be participating in the Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star Weekend.
Mason Plumlee and Bojan Bogdanovic have been named to opposing teams at the Rising Stars Challenge
NBA announces rookie-sophomore US v. World roster. Mason Plumlee on the US, Bojan Bogdanovic on World.
Plumlee and Bojan will play in the Rising Stars Challenge
Lionel Hollins on job speculation: "That's part of the business. Does it bother me? If I read it. If I don’t read it, it doesn’t bother me."
Paul Millsap on how many All-Stars he expects the Hawks to have when the reserves are announced tomorrow night: "Five."
Nets have NBA's worst net rating since D-Will injury on Jan 4. Hawks have best. Nets play Hawks tonight. http://t.co/9sMbo7y6JM
Pablo Prigioni and Mirza Teletovic played together for a season in Spain, and against each other for several.
Teletovic is still ruled out for the season, but the fact that he’s expected to make a full recovery is fantastic news.
Great news. Mirza Teletovic is returning home and expected to make a full recovery, Nets say.
Nets release a team statement from their team physician that says Mirza Teletovic is expected to make a full recovery.
Nets release medical update on Mirza Teletovic from team doctor. The important part: “I expect Mirza to make a full recovery."
Hollins: "Why wouldn't the team be evaluating me? Now if you are talking about evaluating me like I'm doing something bad and all that ..."
Good news: Mirza is flying home from LA today.
Mirza Teletovic is flying home today from Los Angeles.
Wow: 10 teams in the NBA have a better record on the road than at home so far, up just a smidge from 0 last season.
The Cavs are now 25-12 when LeBron plays this season. I think he’s good.
LeBron’s averages since returning from injury: 30.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 2 steals, .506-.311-.706. Cavs 7-1.
Wonder if a player has ever had Rose's line: 33 shots to score 30 points, 11 turnovers, 1 assist and the GW bucket. He also was plus-10.
Derrick Rose's stat line is just wack. But all's well that ends well, I suppose
Jason Kidd signing Jorge Gutierrez to play for the Bucks is not the least bit surprising. He was a big fan of Gutierrez last year w the Nets
I guess that might make you feel happy, depending on your perspective.
Wanna feel sad? Hassan Whiteside had 12 blocks Sunday afternoon. Kevin Garnett has seven blocks all year.
Only thing that concerns me about Isles (and this is probably nitpicking) is the sustainability of their secondary scoring behind JT line.
Congrats to mason plumlee for being selected to dunk contest .
Isles up 3-0. Happy for long time fans, they deserve it . Yes yes yes
League Pass alert, Nets fans: Richard Jefferson, Devin Harris and Vince Carter all in for Griz-Mavs.
Isles nation very aggressive. I know they traded for Yashin and then signed him.
Maybe this period for the Nets is equivalent to signing Yashin and dealing Luongo and Jokinen for Parrish and Kvasha.
Brooklyn's basketball team may not be any good, but this hockey team that's coming to town next season, man. Incredible how far they've come
All four guys in it are young and athletic. Should be a fun competition. Not sure what else people want from it.
I know people don't like the Nets for a variety of reasons, but I don't understand the hate towards Mason Plumlee being in the dunk contest.
Last Nets player in the dunk contest was Richard Jefferson in 2003. He wasn’t very good.
Zach LaVine’s going to win anyway so the rest is window dressing.
Mason Plumlee’s fine. I’m not going to debate Mason Plumlee. He’s the only reason the Nets are worth watching right now.
I also like just having four dunkers. Biggest problem with the dunk contest is it gets slow, bogged down. Less guys should keep it moving.
This should be a really fun dunk contest this year. Four young, exciting players that can all jump out of the gym.
Plumlee joined by Zach LaVine, Victor Oladipo, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Plumlee’s a good finisher, but don’t know about his creativity.
Mason Plumlee has officially been named to the slam dunk contest at Barclays Center.
NBA officially announces Mason Plumlee will participate in 2015 Slam Dunk Contest.
A goalie would have to average 34.55 victories per season over two decades to equal Brodeur (Not factoring in the occasional work stoppage).
Tomorrow’s game is Nets (2-10 in last 12) vs Hawks (16 straight), in Atlanta, on ESPN. Getting ready for completely irrational win territory
Apropos of nothing, I recently learned Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for You Only Live Once, a pretty crazy movie on multiple levels.
Also: Todd MacCulloch has a highlight reel from a 2002 Finals on YouTube. The internet is more vast than you could ever imagine.
NBA players with the fewest frontcourt touches per 48 minutes (minimum 30 games & 18 minutes/game): http://t.co/PguEjbQjTv
The Knicks' twitter account announces that the team announced that it signed Langston Galloway for the rest of the season.
Update: Deron Williams participated in non-contact portions of Nets practice today. He is still ruled out for tomorrow vs. Hawks
Also, Joe Johnson is the ONLY healthy Nets player shooting above league average from 3. & Deron Williams is the only other.
…to help Nets. It’s possible, and if they have deals lined up, may be worth it. But it’s not cut and dry to just make a deal for that sake.
That’s true, somewhat, and I wrote as much. But it also relies on the team finding expirings to trade for, and other teams willing to add $…
A few addendums/reiterations from there… one, some of you made the point that splitting Johnson into 3 pieces is more tradable.
