NBA Playoffs Throwback: New Jersey Nets vs. Toronto Raptors, 2007 first round, game 1
Vince Carter returns to the city in the north taking on Chris Bosh and the 3-seed Raptors. How time does fly. Jason Kidd had 15 assists in the win and the Nets won the series 4-2. Sad Raptor fans consoled themselves by watching Drake on Degrassi.
Kris Humphries has lost his spot in the Brooklyn Nets rotation, which has to be particularly galling for that guy who got traded from James Harden’s entourage. Humphries still has a year and $12 million left on the free agent contract he signed before the season, but it doesn’t look like he’s a part of the Nets’ future plans. Who would have thought that someone would make a long-term commitment to Kris Humphries, but then totally change their mind just a few months later?
The Nets plan to replace Humphries alongside Brook Lopez with a front court rotation of Andray Blatche, Reggie Evans, Mirza Teletovic, and Kanye West.
Brook Lopez grapples with Antawn Jamison in the Lakers’ big road win over Brooklyn. Jamison’s not actually hurting the Nets’ center; this is the same facial expression Brook Lopez makes when he has to figure out the tip on a restaurant bill, or when Kris Humphries tricks him with “down low/too slow.”
