The Brooklyn Nets: A Lolcow in Three Acts

  • Опубликовано: 09 апреля 2017
  • Lolcow (n) - A person or group of people laughed at for actions that they take, despite not trying to be funny. They may try to take themselves seriously, but they are often "milked" for laughs with or without their knowledge.

    The Nets are one of the most hopeless organizations in all of basketball today. Currently boasting one of the worst records in the NBA this year and a total lack of current talent and future prospects, the Nets have next to no hope of getting themselves out of this predicament in the short term future. The only way to truly understand why the Nets are in this situation is to trace these missteps back to the beginning. In this case, back to the early part of this decade, when the Nets were also in the league's gutter. Witness the great Bell curve that is the Mikhail Prokhorov-owned Nets.

    NOTE: I tried a different approach with this video. I shot for more of a "cinematic narrative" style that is probably ridiculously over-the-top. Feel the tragedy and the triumph! Hope you enjoy, though.

      Those picks that Billy King gave up would've been a legit title contending team.
      PG: Lillard, Sexton
      SG: Brown, Young
      SF: Tatum
      PF: Green
      C: Favors, Kanter

      Just add some veterans at the buyout market or dope G-League players and they're good to go.

            It's 2019 and the Nets are now the ones laughing as they scraped together a playoff run (something the Knicks can't do even in that vacuum of talent known as the East) then stole every free agent this off season the Knicks hoped to get. Oh and Zion went to the Pelicans. That's what you scratcher lottery hopeful penny pinching bastards get. Enjoy losing New York to the Nets.... sorry New Yorkers... you honestly deserve better. Maybe now you'll get it.
            (Finds out Durant is out for the entire season)
            OH you sad fucking city... my god. Maybe next year?

              Thanks to Billy King. Without him we never would have had Marks and the load of talent on the Nets today 👏👏👏😎

                        I guess that move to Brooklyn paid off... free agents who always wanted to play in New York now look at this shitshow that was the Nets and feel it’s still the superior option to the Knicks lol

Look at the upload date and compare it to the recent news of nba free agency, there's a HUGE GAP. So trying to look like a cool person makes you look completely fucking stupid.

He missed when he took short cut, but as been mentioned he was building one of the best infrastructure in entire sports world. Man this clowns logic is flawed and ignorant. I didn't dislike the vid but incredibly short sided.

                                                                                      Portland traded Gerald Wallace to the Nets and recived a pick that eventually turned into Damian Lillard. But I don't think you can blame Prokohorov or Billy King. When Prokhorov bought the team he tried to get as many good players as possible in order to make a quick run for the championship. Deron Williams was good. Joe Johnson was good. And before being traded to the Nets,Garnett and Pierce were still pretty good in Boston. Brook Lopez was an all-star in the east and another quality player in the starting lineup. You had guys like Livingston,Kirilenko,Teletovic,Reggie Evans,Jason Terry,Alan Anderson etc. all quality players coming off the bench. Go back and read some of the reviews of that trade and you will see it was all A,A+,B+... The owner simply said to his GM to bring him the best players possible no matter how much money and future draft picks it costs them. But it simply didn't work. There was bad chamesitry on the court,the ''leader'' of the team Deron Williams simply didn't care enough. Garnett got worse and guys like Lopez,Livingston and the rest of role players didn't even know where to fit when the main guys don't know how to fit. The only real mistake in my opinion was hiring Jason Kidd. He was a great player,great mind and can be a great coach also in the future but at the time it was simply to fast for him. But once that plan didn't work out,Prokohroc changed the direction of the team,changed pretty much the entire front office and went for more of a natural growth of the team and somehow got talented young players without draft picks ( D'Angello Russell,Spencer Dinwidie,Caris LaVert,Joe Harris ) even drafted pretty good with their high picks. 22 picks Jarrett Allen a solid young center. The Barclys arena is amazing,probably the best in the NBA,they have great play by play and colour commentators,they play in NY area and I think from the begining they had a good owner who is learning trough the years. Having this new culture and direction with Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinsion resuluted into drawing in free agents like Irving and KD and others will follow. So yeah in short don't hate on Brooklyn because is easy to look back and think of those moves as stupid but in the moment we were all for it.
