In addition to his lengthy thoughts on Pierce, Billy King also touched on a few other things today. Among them ...
So nice to be watching hockey (until the Jets game starts, anyway)
King: "Two years in a row it’s something we created ourselves. We beat our own drums. This year it’s more, 'Let's just play basketball ...'"
I'm beyond hungry..
King emphasized Brooklyn's goal of top-4 in the E.C. was the same last two years, and it's really about homecourt advantage in 1st round.
I like the last sentence in the Blake Griffin interview in GQ: "It's interesting what sports do to people."
Billy King says goal for Nets this season is to finish in the top-4 in the Eastern Conference.
Billy King: During free agency, Nets became convinced Pierce wasn't going to re-sign. When Pierce came back to the Nets, team had moved on.
According to Billy King, today was the first time Brook Lopez played 5-on-5 since surgery.
Willie Reed will be the last player Nets player signed to training camp.
In terms of leadership void left by Paul Pierce's departure, King said he thinks KG, Alan Anderson and Jarrett Jack will help fill it.
Billy King said Brook probably won't do 2-a-days at camp. Said they'll play it by ear with Deron but he should play more than last preseason
Summer fun? Over. The daily grind? About to begin. It always feels like the offseason goes by way too fast, well, because it always does.
If Brodeur ever beats the Devils (it shouldn't ever come to that), I wonder if he'll refuse to celebrate
Frank Lampard. Wow. What a crazy game between Chelsea and Manchester City.
Good move by City to script that Lampard goal
Woke up n a good mood today...
Good morning world!!!
Just calling you know that I'm loving your voice keep talking bae I'm ah just listen!!!!!
Beyonce killed it as Timberlake. But would have been more impressive if she could have pulled off Rick Ross, too.
Red Bulls 3-0. Wright-Phillips hat trick.Clint Dempsey, who performed his rap songs at an MLS event Thursday, is still out of lineup to rest
It took the Red Bulls 29 seconds to take a 1-0 lead over Sounders; Wright-Phillips with his 22nd goal of the season, five off league record
Somehow, I get the feeling Joe DiMaggio never said "I want to thank the Good Lord for making me hear Cotton Eye Joe in the 8th inning"
Still can't figure out why Rutgers didn't give it to Paul James on every play against Penn State.
If Blatche would've signed with NBA team, most of salary would've gone to Wizards. Still sticking it to Washington.
Andray Blatche signs with Chinese team and maximizes money. $2.5 million salary + amnesty payment from Wizards.
Have been saying for awhile that Andray Blatche would wind up in China. Chance for him to make big $, then potentially get NBA deal in March
Andray Blatche will reportedly be playing in China next season
Well, three goals in three minutes, huh? I regret getting up to get coffee. Unbelievable.
The immediate thought is what would Minnesota be offering in return in a sign-and-trade for Bledsoe. Pekovic? Rubio?
Nap time though..
NFL = National Fallout League
Reporters are cutting off Goodell because he continues to say nothing.
And with one swoop of Goodell's black Sharpie, Rachel Nichols was blackballed by the NFL.
Well. This is a disaster.
Roger Goodell's performance today pales in comparison to the one Adam Silver gave about Donald Sterling. The only similarity is the setting.
Special kind of arrogance to come out for this press conference and not say anything.
Not a strong performance from Goodell. Dancing around questions, trying hard to move forward when there's much to answer about the past
I am an activist for change because I want equal rights and equal protection under the law for all races, gender, & lgbtq people.
Is there a sprint store in edgewater?
I'm all Jetered out. A big fan, but enough is enough.
Nets have voided contract of HAMADY NDIAYE after results of physical, team announces.
A little more magic from the Captain
