    Stephen A smith made some good points about his mental health narrative. This guy is full of **** tbh.

    ??

    Nets aren’t relevant in NY

    BK is a good situation for Simmons…small fanbase, NY media doesn’t care about them, and KD and Kyrie can handle all the shooting and scoring

    Simmons might get more heat from Knicks fans trying to troll than the 10 Nets fans in NY

    So the sports media definitely cares about them. But yes, the regular local news and the regular New York completely doesn't care. Those that have been in NYC for some time just don't consider the Nets to be a real NYC team -- kind of like the Islanders.

    Most of those who adopted the Nets were those new to the NYC and/or didn't really have a team, or just totally fed up with the Knicks. But all those "fed up with the Knicks people" would totally switch back if the Knicks ever turned it around.

    It's bit like what the reports have been of the Rams/Chargers in LA.

    Agreed. If the team crashes .. . . I think Kyrie gets more blame than him
    but then again . . Kyrie appears to be made of Teflon

    Simmons seems like a pretty good fit in BKN. They don't need him to be a primary scorer, which is really his only weakness.

    I think he got a break from pressure coming from Philly. A notoriously critical and difficult arena for the home team.

    Lol. That’s not much to hang your hat on.

    What about a team that starts Greg Oden, Hasheem Thabeet, Evan Turner, Anthony Bennett, and Markelle Fultz?

    Usually I like to see how players look after a big trade.

    Harden not playing.
    Simmons not playing.

    So anticlimactic.

    Simmons is a nut case and Harden has no nuts.

    I hope Brooklyn struggles for many years to come, because the worse they are, the better it is for us.
