He’s 6’8” with a great athletic physique and known for his defense. I’d like to see if he can grow and excel in Long Island.


From what we’ve heard, I wouldn’t be surprised if Marks is already looking for some late blooming talent to develop post KD/Kyrie prime years to be rotational pieces.

Perry, Claxton, Eboua, Chiozza.

Keep an eye on this:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/24/tech/alibaba-china-antitrust-investigation/index.html

Hong Kong (CNN Business)China has launched an antitrust investigation into Alibaba (BABA) as it steps up scrutiny of the country's rapidly growing internet firms.

The State Administration for Market Regulation, China's top market regulator, said Thursday that it would probe alleged monopolistic behavior by Alibaba, Jack Ma's online shopping and cloud computing giant. It gave few details but said it would investigate the company's practice of requiring merchants to sign agreements that prevent them selling products on rival platforms, known as "choosing one from two."
Separately, the People's Bank of China announced that the country's four financial regulators will summon Ant Group, Alibaba's financial affiliate, to a meeting in the coming days. The meeting would "guide Ant Group" to implement financial supervision and regulate its services, the central bank said in a statement.


So Jack Ma was talking big **** about the CCP's regulatory practices, which pissed Winnie the Pooh Xi Jinping off and now he's targeting Alibaba. The dude personally stopped the IPO offering for AntGroup because he's in his feelings about Ma getting out of pocket.

I don't know how this will impact the Nets in any way, but Joe Tsai is Alibaba's 2nd largest shareholder. Something to keep in mind as that luxury tax bill begins to skyrocket :nonono:

Watching today’s game as an outsider, it’s clear the Nets need upgrades and a much better supporting cast for KD & Kyrie.

KD & Kyrie seemed to be shooting at like 60% (tough contested shots) with the rest of the team shooting like 30% (bricking wide open shots). Need to be able to knock down open shots when your stars get doubled, defence also looked weak, need players that play their respective roles to a tee. GM has some work to do.

LOL, it's one game, shooting slumps happen. There are going to be games when KD and/or Kyrie are cold, and the supporting cast lifts them up.

The supporting cast was perfectly fine in the 2 games prior.

Marks acquisition of Prince and his followed up extension has failed big time.... big blow

Shamet is currently following suit but still time to defer.

The amount of deadweight eating up so much cap is crazy.... DJ and Prince ain’t worth their price.... amazingly awful.

My sports teams are currently experiencing suckiness. Please pardon the mess.
