    Default The Nets are B*TCHES

    So it appears as though Brooklyn is going to try to fall out of the 5 seed to avoid a likely match up with the Bulls, obviously preferring to play the raps in the first round. This my friends makes them the ultimate bitches.

    Now, I know some might argue that it's just good strategy to position yourself for the best odds of making it out of the first round. And I would agree to an extent. The problem is when you have a team that is the most expensive in the history of the NBA and is loaded with experienced vets and former NBA champions and is coached by an NBA champ you aren't supposed to care about seeding. Let alone LOSE To TRY TO MOVE DOWN!

    This Nets team is a joke. I hope we get these bastards and smash them. Bunch of losers. Grow some balls.

    Yeah I just stopped watching the knicks vs Nets game

    Nets are obviously giving this game away !

    How can you throw the ball away on 3 on 1 fast break? Multiple times???

    Step out of bounds when your by yourself

    Paul Pierce looks like he drank a two 6 before the game

    Joe Johnson look like he's on crack right now

    This whole nets team is blatantly tanking for the 6th seed its so obvious
    Bring back the physical game and send the softies home.

    Maybe if we kick their asses all around the court in the first round they will feel pretty ashamed.

    Adam silver keeps saying that he hasn't seen players or coaches blatantly try to lose. I hope he's watching this game and cracks down on it. It's one thing to say that management uses a valid strategy when dumping salaries and accepting losing seasons, but its another to allow this bullshit to happen.

    If Adam silver says nobody in the NBA in tanking after watching this Knicks vs Nets game

    He must have no idea what he's doing or he just doesn't care

    well... there are supposed to be consequences aren't there? Other teams watching the nets get away with this could turn the NBA into a joke real fast.

    Casey was on the Tim and sid show today and said that he doesn't believe in trying to position yourself for whatever seed you want, says the basketball gods will get you. We'll I hope those basketball gods are the Raptors. I'm going to the first game of the playoffs if we're playing Brooklyn keep an eye out for the "Brooklyn Cowards" sign cut that's me.

    I started a similar thread earlier today that was moved for reasons that are not yet clear. The guys on NBA Sirius radio were all over this today . I hope Nets lose first round no matter who they play. Would also like to see Al Jefferson eat Miami up inside in response to Miami's mini tank.

    You got it boss.

    Also, consider this. 2 of the 3 so called "title contenders" in the east are losing on purpose in an attempt to position themselves better in the pathetically terrible eastern conference haha hahaha. That's embarrassing!

    The east has been a joke this year but the so called best teams in the east tanking for favorable seeding is a real low. cowards

    fuck the nets and anybody who love 'em. Forreal bring them on, wouldn't want it any other way actually. Nothing would be sweeter then sending garnett home with his old ass, especially after this. Be careful what you wish for

    Saw them talking about this on PTI today, Tony and Wilbon acting like the raptors were some second class 8th seed. I expect disrespect from around the league as we haven't won anything yet. But it sucks coming from the experts who the casual fan gets their opinions from. Wilbon should know, we've been battling with his bulls all season
