08:08 AM ET 12.26 | Brett Yormark returned to the 140-character space to vent on Tuesday -- and not just about what happened on the court. After they lost for the ninth time in their past 12 games, the Nets CEO took to his Twitter account and chastised the team for another lethargic effort. He was also displeased with some technical issues in the arena throughout the game. Although he mentioned he believes the Nets will turn it around, Yormark is getting weary of this losing trend. "Nets fans deserved better today," Yormark tweeted. "The entire organization needs to work harder to find the solution. We will get there." It was the second time in less than a week that Yormark has taken to Twitter to let Nets fans know he was unhappy.

They just aren't that good of a team. Maybe it was Sloan's system that made Deron Williams.

They ae the clippers of last year plain and simple.
Second round exit at best, depending on who they face.

QUOTE(#2):

They killed their chances with the Joe Johnson deal. With his salary and then paying Lopez and Hump 27 million total per year they pretty much are stuck where they are. Howard was desperate to get there and they blew it. Now they are stuck in mediocre land.

Congrats on the win.
But who else was there to be got while building a playoff team in Brooklyn?
Kevin Martin?
Taking a chance on the inconsistent Tyreke Evans?
They had to get somebody...

Howard is not the difference maker.

Dwight Howard.

They ended up not getting him though, they couldn't be stangnant and not make a move.
They had to make a move or make it soon.

QUOTE(#8):

They have to be patient and realize that they're not going to contend this year, but they have a brighter future in the coming years, as various players for the Heat and Knicks get even older, and these teams start to fade. Of course, excellent remark about the bloated contracts. They will need to shed one of the big contracts and make a trade for more depth.

Even after the heat win back to back perhaps 3 in a row, and then start to fade the nets ain't beating the bulls or sixers.
They definitely can't see OKC or the clippers or grizzles.

It's safe to say Orlando should have pulled the trigger on the Howard for Lopez & Gerald Wallace deal, or Lopez & Humphries.
Cause Orlando got screwed in the trade, but even D Will told Billy King don't hold your breathe on the Dwight Howard trade, still make some kind of move...
