    Defense key in NBA’s era of offense

    NBA offenses have become quite sophisticated. In fact, some of the league’s lesser teams have been responsible for a prolific number of points in recent years.

    Brooklyn Nets preach patience ahead of 2017-18 season

    After an era in which the Brooklyn Nets tried the basketball equivalent of a get-rich-quick scheme, the new brass is preaching a slow, methodical rebuild.

    D’Angelo Russell provides Nets with much-needed star appeal

    Ever since the Brooklyn Nets abandoned their “win-now” mode, which cost them a multitude of draft picks, money, and wins, the team has lacked a star.
