I shouldn’t be writing this just a few minutes after what I can only describe as an extremely bitter loss …. there was no valiant effort made to reconcile Nets fans during the off season ….. just a dismal effort where one team obviously wanted it a lot more than the other.
The coaching was suspect as well … since coaching is mostly about playing the right players and Joe Johnson’s bad foot must have had a lot to do with what must have been his worst post season performance ever.
And Derek Williams simply can’t jump or defend… playing flat footed his legs must have felt like rubber bands from the way his lower body struggled to keep up with his upper body ……. and at one crucial point under the basket he didn’t elevate even one inch to snare a rebound that the Bulls gobbled up …. !
Two takeaways are that the Nets would have lost four straight to Miami in embarrassing fashion and the Bulls were simply the better team.
All the talk about Brooklyn’s team talent is like bragging about intelligence that isn’t put to any good use.
Does Carlissimo deserve the coaching job?
No. It was his loss both emotionally and strategically.
The Net’s game effort can be summed up in one word.
