I don't agree with the title, because no one can completely shut down Melo, but..

Good but no where near great that's why its annoying Raptors are playing so shit. Yes they have a more talented starting group but bench is pathetic.

The nets problem is not the talent of the players. It's that the starters can't play starter minutes. We play half the game against their B team.

that's the key with them
the million dollar question is, can pierce and KG play more minutes and kidd is not yet going all in, or they can't ... With pierce on the floor, last game notwithstanding, they are really tough to beat at either end of the floor. When pierce is out, they kind of crumble a bit.

and our bench is weaker then theirs, but more in the sense that they have a lot more capable pieces. We have just a few good players on the bench, but I like vasquez and patterson more than anybody on their second unit.

Its interesting to see the huge effect pierce has on the nets, If we can find an answer to pierce that will be big for us.

That may have been done for other reasons. If you honestly think AA/teltovic/blatch/Thornton are solid rotation players, that's sad. All can get hot quickly but other then that, bunch of chuckers who are bad on D with low IQ's. Ak was great but rn, he is a shadow of what he used to be.

the nets arent likely to make it out of round 1, let alone make it out of the east. if we do squeeze by the raps, miami is making quick work of us. we have ZERO shot of advaning to even the conference finals

One game at a time. Despite their fanbase being a bunch of morons, we cannot look past the Raptors.
Quote:
Who else in the NBA has a GM being unprofessional, fans trying to disrespect our fanbase with trolling/baiting and trying to push a refs conspiracy theory? Only Raps fans.

We could easily call you all sensitive for crying about the whole" nets tanked for 6th" crap or the "nobody ESPN or TNT gives us any attention" nonsense.

We just are a small fanbase on here that doesn't like bullcrap. Regardless if it's Raps fans or Knicks fans.

Pierce needs to play better and knock down those open shots. Expecting him to have a big game today.

I don’t think we’ll lose, but oh lord if we did the Raptors would take all the momentum, we need to dominate in these home games and send these Raptors home to canaduh down 3-1 LETS GO!!!

Here's my big dilema for tonight
It’s Friday night. Long week of work. I’m accustomed to coming home and having a few beers. I like craft beers and have a nice 6 pack of 8% beer waiting for me. The more nervous I get the quicker they’ll go down. I almost don’t want to do that because if we lose I can see myself becoming an angry drunk and tearing the TV off the wall and out the window. I’m anxious as hell for this. This game could go either way.

Paid? AA making less then 900k, blatche make 1.1 so does Livingston.
probably got paid under the table lol and Mirza makes only 3 mill. Thornton makes 8 mill but that s cause he is over pai. Most those guys don't deserve contracts. Reminds me of heat 2011 when they had so many shit players on vets deals

I may have exaggerated their shitness because of bias but I firmly believe their bench is no where near true contenders like heat, clips,spurs, okc.

Mirza is like Novak, he can only shoot 3's. Livingston is actually a pretty good ball player on both sides of the ball. I would agree that the rest are garbage.

From last night.... Some of them sound alot like us on RF.

Quote:
Amazing game. Heart wrenching again. Anyone who thinks it's over is being emotional. They already won one in Toronto. It's all about which team stores enough energy for that final push. No game will be a blowout so I anticipate another nail biter in game 5. It was shutting down Joe to me that was the difference and a few of your guys missing good looks. Good luck to you guys!
Quote:
we have no shot to win on the road. first game we got lucky cause of jitters for the raptors. this series i over. the nets have no heart. no chance we show up game 5
Quote:
Don't blame the refs on this. Deron sucked, KG sat, JJ got double teamed and had no one to pass too, poor defense down the stretch. But, we should complain a lot like Toronto to get the mercy calls next game.
Quote:
12 points in the 4th quarter? Oh God!

And this mother **** brought in Plumlee in with 4 minutes left? I can't stand him anymore. Just STFU and GTFO
Quote:
I totally wouldn't be mad if KG demanded a trade next year with the way Kidd is using him.

It's a disgrace to pull a healthy ass KG with FOUR MINUTES LEFT IN A CLOSE GAME. God forbid KG plays 24 minutes, is he going to die or something?
Quote:
The worst part about the nets getting no media coverage is there is no one to call dwill out or put pressure on him to put up or shut up.

if this was the knicks and carmello dude would be getting eaten alive
Quote:
As a Raps fan, I'm totally with you. I'm personally sick of my fanbase complaining about the refs. This series has been reffed pretty well actually.
Same guy as above

Quote:
Sure I can agree to that.

Gotta say, as a Raps fan, I clearly want to win. But as an NBA fan, I would feel good if you guys made it on. Seeing the Nets against the Heat would be fun. I really like Plumlee, Livingston, Teletovic, Johnson...would be a fun series.'

That being said, Go Raptors
Quote:
we're a mega billions underachieving lack of future 6th seed team....

forgive my excitement lol
Quote:
The Nets are done

I said that the winner of this game would take the series, and that was because IF the Nets gave this one away, which they did, they would cede home court and eventually the series.

Smart money says that a best 2 out of 3 with two games on the road spells doom for the Nets

Jaosn Kidd has a lot to learn. A LOT.

What a waste of a season.
Quote:
All of you calling out prok for saying this series is over should look in the mirror. Your team just lost the biggest game of the season cause they couldn't hit a shot in the last 6 minutes of the game. They're supposed to be veterans but turned the ball over like crazy. We have a stupid coach who give a top notch athlete 90 second breaks. Our franchise player is a soft overpaid whinny little bitch and you all seem fine with this. Any real fan would be going crazy right now, not acting like nothing bad just happened. You all need to wake up. Its a best of 3 series now and Toronto has the home court and the momentum. They found a way to stop the only guy who was doing anything in this series. We can still win but the odds are heavily against us and for some of you this is not enough to be mad about which show what kind of fans you are.
Quote:
That's not to disrespect the Raptors, they're a good team, but the Nets need to win this series, or else they're the laughingstock of the league imo. The new NY Knicks...just destined to be 1 and done.
Quote:
yeah, it would be real damaging

1) no way pierce and KG come back to play on a team with no heart. if they couldnt get this nets team out of the first round this year, they cant be confident they would next year

2) deron williams is pretty much done. 2 years in a row the clear most talented player in the series and 2 years in a row he wasnt able to come through for his team. he is going to get absolutely detroyed if the nets lose this series, if his confidence wasnt shot already it will be after this

3) we will have lost the potential new young fans.... no one wants to root for a team that doesnt play hard and always underachieves. losing to the heat would at least give us more exposure to young fans
