I don't know why the players union would approve of shorter games in terms of minutes. It would only hurt its rank-and-file members.
But in all seriousness, should be some fun basketball talk if anyone decides to make the trip.
Kia announced it will pay LeBron James to help market their cars. The press release notes he owns a "fleet of exotic automobiles."
The fact that Steve Nash hurt his back lifting bags doesn't lead to much optimism about him making it through the season healthy.
"He needs to think very, very hard about how he manages himself publicly," Don Garber, the commissioner of MLS, said about Jurgen Klinsmann.
Don Garber: "I believe that Landon should have been in Brazil. ...His treatment was inexcusable."
Don Garber on Klinsmann's comments: "Personally, they're infuriating. ..frustrating as hell."
Garber continued: "I don't think anyone is above the sport. ... Klinsmann's comments are detrimental to our league. And they're wrong."
Commish Garber addresses Klinsmann disparaging MLS: "I will do everything and anything to defend our league."
Tough to be a Nets fan this preseason: 1st game is not televised, 2nd is at 1 a.m., 3rd is at 7:30 a.m., 4th is cut by four minutes.
Bayern Munich is trying to establish its brand in America. It'll help when Fox starts broadcasting Bundesliga games in 2015-16 season
Had to read about the Snoop Dogg thing on regular TMZ then awkwardly go to TMZ Sports to find the Nick Young rebuttal
Hollins says Nets had "awesome" ball movement, and was very happy with how the starting five looked. Wasn't happy with young guys.
Lionel: "I think Bojan has surprised us with his steady play. Deron has been really consistent, his health is back, playing with confidence"
Nets win 129-117 in overtime over the Kings.
The Nets are giving fans the extra 4 minutes they took from Sundays game.
Nets with opportunity to win the game in final seconds. Plumlee throws a turnover. Preseason overtime.
Oh, please don't go to overtime.
The cow is back
Deron Williams has looked terrific after halftime. Teletovic now has five 3-pointers.
Man, Mirza Teletovic will never hesitate to shoot.
Looks like Deron Williams has gotten rid of the splint
Nets are going to run into problems throughout long season if they can't rely on Marquis Teague to give minutes
Another nice post-up by Bogdanovic, this time on Nik Stauskas.
Here is the cow. http://t.co/6UftQDFBuU
There's a cow shaking his head at me while holding a sign in this Chinese TV feed of the Nets game.
Alan Anderson makes his preseason debut to start the second quarter.
Brook Lopez plays the entire first quarter, finishes with 14 points, three rebounds and two blocked shots.
This has been Bogdanovic's best game of the preseason by miles.
And now Bogdanovic knocks down the corner 3-pointer. Big reason why he's almost certain to be the team's fifth starter.
Beautiful give-and-go for Bogdanovic and Teletovic there leading to a Bogdanovic layup.
It's way too early for that standing cow graphic, NBA TV.
Looks like Deron Williams has some sort of tape on his right wrist, though it may be a wrist band I can't tell
The Nets are much better off when Lopez catches the ball moving towards the hoop. Keeps him from getting stagnant and holding the ball.
Still waiting for Brook Lopez's first pass on the offensive end of the preseason.
No Kevin Garnett or DeMarcus Cousins in this game today. NBA can't be too happy about that.
Kevin Garnett is getting a rest day today in Beijing & Lionel Hollins will coach. Starters: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Teletovic, Lopezz
The Nets and NBA cares refurbished a basketball court in Beijing. And Brook Lopez got to hold giant scissors! http://t.co/Br1HGH2mgV
No offense but if you gchat me from invisible you're pretty much forever dead to me
As Klinsmann continues to disparage level of MLS, I doubt it's going to spark change. League is committed to slow-growth model.
Expansion club NYCFC has sold 10,000 season tickets for first year in Yankee Stadium.
That's not a knock, but rather a compliment. Players should do less time tweeting, especially when as a whole they haven't met expectations
Don't know the answer, but I'd be curious to see if there's a starting 5 less active or personal on Twitter than the Nets.
Hollins, BTW, missed today's practice with the same illness that kept him out of preseason game. Assistant Paul Westphal is running things.
Bovada odds: Bojan Bogdanovic 30/1 to win ROY; Hollins at 35/1 for COY. Hollins actually good bet since expectations have plummeted.
Those four minutes of basketball will fade from your conscious as quickly as the BrooklynKnight
I propose a national anthem shot clock.
Nets are building quite the goodwill with the NBA -- volunteering for overseas trips, nickname jerseys, shorter games.
Not only reduce minutes but also the number of games in a season. Coaches are forcing that hand with all the DNPs for rest.
Been to countless games where first 42 minutes were listless and felt like a stutter to final 6. Can't think of reason not to shorten games
NBA announces that it's experimenting with a 44-minute game with Nets and Celtics as the guinea pigs for preseason game Oct. 19 at Barclays.
Just left Adidas store in Beijing . Lots of nets merch in store. Lopez , Johnson ,kg and Deron all featured.
Finally, in the fourth quarter of Knicks-Raptors, a reason to pay attention: Bruno Caboclo is in the game.
