Culture and the value of playing on the same court the fans play on

Thirty Five Ventures It was a typical Nets moment from the last few years. Rookie Nicolas Claxton had just taken a high-arching pass from David Dwaba and slammed it down. Claxton, filled with bug-eyed excitement, spread his arms and ran up court. At the other end, the Nets bench was standing and cheering, responding as one, laughing and enjoying the moment. There was no dancing … yet. That may come later. But it was a signal: the culture has survived despite all the changes. It was…

Kenny Smith: Nets should contend for East title … with or without Kevin Durant

Speaking at the NBA Crossover event in London, two-time NBA champion Kenny Smith said the Nets should contend for the Eastern Conference championship — with or without Kevin Durant. Although the Nets have not provided a timetable for KD’s return —and won’t— there’s a growing consensus around the league that we’ll see No. 7 on the court sometime this season. But even with Durant in street clothes, TNT’s Smith thinks the Nets will have enough to make some noise, noting the addition of …

TEAM USA: Joe Harris grabs 8 boards, hands out 3 assists in win over Greece

FIBA Joe Harris scored only three points Saturday but grabbed eight rebounds and handed out three assists in Team USA’s 69-53 win over Greece and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the FIBA World Cup second round. Harris started his second straight game with Jayson Tatum still out with a sprained ankle. The Nets swingman played 21 minutes, which has been his norm under Gregg Popovich. The NBA’s leading 3-point shooter was only 1-of-3 from deep, 1-of-4 overall, but was part of the Americans’ stingy defense. In their past two games, Team USA has held its opponents to 38-of-128 from the field. Antetokounmpo had a double-double with 15 points and 13 boards but played only 26 minutes. …

In yet another late collapse, Liberty lose to Atlanta Dream in Westchester

Photo by Catalina Fragoso/NBAE via Getty Images The New York Liberty season, which started so promising with a new owner and a .500 record early on, is ending poorly … and in discomforting ways. Once again, after holding a lead in the first half, New York fell apart in the second and lost in the closing minutes, this time to the Atlanta Dream, 90-87, in White Plains. The loss brought the Liberty record to 9-19. They have now lost 12 of their last 14 games. The …

GOING FOR IT: Nets talk championship ambitions … ‘We aren’t trying to be okay’

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via Getty Images Hoopshype’s Alex Kennedy talked to current —and one former— Nets players recently and came away with one overriding thought: this isn’t about taking the next step. It’s about taking the ultimate step and bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Kennedy spoke with Spencer Dinwiddie from last year’s team as well as new Nets Wilson Chandler and Garrett Temple and even ex-Net Trevor Booker. Each of them (like DeAndre Jordan earlier in the week) talked about how talent, experience and culture brought the Nets to a new level. “Everyone understands how this shifts what we’re doing. We aren’t just a young group trying to improve. We’re trying …
