Infinite Nets Week 20: The Sad Goodbye

This is all for the best. We've entered the buildup before the painful stretch. All season long, the Nets have defied their reputation to make the playoffs. At the outset of the year the people who have stock in the notion of building through the draft, said that the Nets should

Infinite Nets Week 19: Hello Again

This season is still going? I've hit the wall. Following the team as closely as I have has gone more smoothly than I could have imagined when I'd thought up this column back in July, but they've played 61 games and I believe I've watched 58 (or at least a sizable

Infinite Nets Week 18: All Star Week

As God is my witness, there was nothing that I could have done, honey. It's a short week. The Nets entered it having lost all of their rhythm with Spencer Dinwiddie, however they were getting other players back, and the break was coming. Like a fighter waiting for the bell, they

Infinite Nets Week 16: Chaos

God, Jared Goff fucking blows. There are no free lunches. I had been handed a car, a prehistoric 2004 Toyota Prius that allows me the freedom to leave the city, and the promise of better summers, so long as I can keep it running. But even free cars come with their

Infinite Nets Week 14: The Good Kind of Karma.

This team is above .500? The Nets played the Celtics on Monday. This seems like a rerun from last week, but I checked. It was a different game. They met up in Brooklyn this time, so that's a change of pace. Also, they won. Much better start to the week in

Infinite Nets Week 13: Rough Waters

Man those guys really love romcoms. I've gone viral, only none none of you guys really know it. That's fine. On January 2nd, I'd posted a brief opinion piece on The Irony of Fate. It's a Russian movie, so unless you are well versed in their history, every single reference will go

Infinite Nets Week 12: Revenge Week

God those Pelican and Grizzlies losses earlier this year sucked. To be a fan in 2019 is to consider yourself an expert. The experience of following either a team or a sport will inevitably force the viewer to not only believe, but to loudly proclaim to friends and complete strangers over

Infinite Nets Week 11: My Neighborhood Is Killing Me

This blog has to be about something more than simply recapping the Brooklyn Nets. I'm going to have to move. Not out of the city itself, or even the borough, but further away from the trendy, downtown adjacent realm where I live right now. And as much as I try to

Infinite Nets Week 10: Busting Ass Before Christmas

I've been taking you for granted. It's partly my nature. Ask my wife or ex-girlfriends. Or my employers. The cycle never breaks. In the beginning I will step in to a new project/relationship/environment/habit with the work ethic of a completely earnest Amish man. I become ill with the thought of

Infinite Nets Week Eight: Tank Warfare?

"If we win one tomorrow, that's called a winning streak" Writers note: I'm playing though pain. My daughter has been in daycare for a few months, which means my daughter has been sick for a few months. And as a result I am sick. And also, I had to finish off

Infinite Notes Week Seven: The Downward Spiral

  I've made a huge mistake They claim that it's always darkest before the dawn, but times like this you start to wonder if that light at the end of the tunnel is just the beckoning call of the afterlife that you're supposed to walk toward in death. The Brooklyn Nets are

Infinite Nets Week 5: It’s Wintertime

"The world is so cold" Winter has come. The worthlessly pedantic will tell me that autumn doesn't punch out until the 21st, but that's a dweeb's way of viewing things. The leaves are down and snow has fallen. Thanksgiving isn't until next week, but sometimes Thanksgiving comes after the fall. Similarly, the
