33 percent three point shooting looks awful and explains our slip. He was shooting more than 45 percent at the beginning of the season.

We gotta reduce JR's role somehow.

I second that. I can't stand these ignorant punks running their mouths. Sweeping them in a playoff series would be extremely satisfying. Seriously though, Joe Johnson is an idiot.

33% isn't bad at all. It means that a normal game for JR is to shoot 1/3 or 2/6 from three. I'll take that.

they say to turn the other cheek and ignore stupidity. but it can be trying.
the nets are a bunch of never-has-beens and never-will-bes. not that the knicks have a great pedigree of winning, but at least they have some players with fire in their eyes. i've never seen a team with more mouth-breathers than the nets. evans, joe johnson, blatche, humphries...even deron williams appears semi-retarded. and gerald wallace must have brain damage at this point. i couldn't root for any of those guys...lopez is the only one who i could see playing a leading role on a good team. and he's far from a complete player. johnson is talented but, as i said, not a winner.

Wait so the Nets think there so good? We just got a few critical key piece in our lineup and we are STILL missing critical pieces (Felton and Camby and Rasheed) shumpert is on a minute limit, Stoudemire is still getting into game shape after not playing ball for months, carmelo had one of his worst games of the season and the Nets only won by 3 lmfaoooo ... We have been playing bad lately and Nets been playing much better and we are STILL ahead of them. FoH Nets fans you know your team aint **** when the Nets starting lineup got booed at Barclays center

That was not my intention. I'm just saying, 33% for a spark plug go-to scorer off the bench who makes difficult shots is not bad.

Lets not forget the stretch JR had before he bumped heads with Bradley, he was absolutely killing it befor then and i am very confident that he will bounce back, and i think the team will bounce back just fine when Felton finally comes back
