How Spencer Dinwiddie is Carrying Brooklyn Nets Offense

It’s been a couple of years since Spencer Dinwiddie proved the skeptics wrong and established himself as a valuable standout for the Brooklyn Nets. This season, he’s proving nearly everyone wrong again. Kenny Atkinson’s much-hyped, new-look squad got off to a rocky start this fall. A three-game skid in mid-November sank Brooklyn to 4-7, then…

Kyrie Irving Should Be Headed for a Career Year in Brooklyn

Prognosticators don’t have high hopes for the Brooklyn Nets in 2019-20.

Maybe We Were Too Hard On DeAndre Ayton

Course correction can be a tough thing to manage. Everyone’s had a staunch opinion on something or someone, doubled down on it, then grudgingly changed their minds when presented with new evidence.
