    For no particular reason, I just checked out a nets fan site http://netsarescorching.com/ to see any of their thoughts on the last game and it gave me a bit of a different perspective. It's the last game of the season for us but it's the last game of the NJ franchise for them. Kind of sombre looking at the site. As strong as we are, just being the lone out of U.S. franchise puts us at an inherent risk of being that team one day. That aside, it's not quite the same since they've already played their last home game. But while we're just looking at the tanking option, what are they thinking? Tank for a pick that they might not even get (4th or worse)? Playing on a team who's leader has already said he's leaving? Playing the last game for a franchise? What do you think?
    All is not lost Jclaw, they still have Jersey Shore to provide their entertainment for years to come! As if living in New Jersey wouldn't suck enough already...

    However, I would be pretty damn depressed if we ever lost our team. *Knock on wood* Thankfully we're quite stable with a potential (super?)star coming in next season. Here's to the Nets still sucking in BK!

    They lost to them by 14 on March 14th without Williams.

    They still have Wallace, Green, Brooks, Morrow, and Hump playing. I don't think the game is a gimme. Of course, this is said without knowing who will not play on Thursday.

    NJ isn't even playing Deron anymore, I'd be surprised if we lose to them.

    You know what? No one will ever care about this after this week. Just as well, I have no opinion about it.

    The last two games have been difficult for Toronto to look like they aren't trying to lose.

    Although maybe it is my perspective. I am no longer 100% rooting for them to win. It is like 50/50 - "Yes Toronto!" on a score and then "Dammit Toronto!" on the same score. I really am a tortured soul these days.
    +1

    I just want this to be over...

    Casey's feelings on the ball toss via Doug Smith:

    DeRozan rifled the ball the length of the court and into the stands, a move that should have earned him a technical foul but became an automatic ejection when the ball he threw wound up in the stands.

    Sorry, but that's one of the most absurd things I've ever heard. Most athletes have pride and don't want to go out like that.

    Oh and count me among the many that are shocked Udoh turned out to be good. I couldn't figure out why he was being considered a first rounder in the draft.

    I wouldn't hold my breathe on Curry and Bogut getting/staying healthy.

    I think the trade was a bit of a preemptive strike on Jennings comments about leaving. Plus they got Udoh and dumped S-Jax so all in all it worked out.

    Did DD get ejected last night to give his childhood buddy's team a chance to get a crack at the playoffs?
    Nope, he got a txt from BC before the game that said, "TANK NATIONNN, ejection without harming anyone like that dummy Ron"

    Watching the Milwaukee game last night, it is clear the Bucks are going to have to do something with Ellis or Jennings. They don't work together at all. It was "Your turn" .... ok..... "My turn" all game.
    That was "interesting"...and they were jacking it up immediately. What I found somewhat odd was that the rest of the team were deferring /passing the ball back to them as if that was a Skiles instruction. They have to get a big in the middle so one of Jennings or Ellis will have to go.

    monta for bogut trade was stupid. Once bogut and curry are healthy that team is going to be dangerous. When bogut was healthy with the bucks they were easily in the race for the playoffs but now without a legit C they are screwed.
    They can easily draft Meyers Leonard, or Tyler Zeller, so hope is not all lost.
