07:21 AM ET 12.06 | Being hammered by the crosstown Knicks stung, but the Nets' Thursday wasn't entirely bleak. In an interview with TNT during the game, Nets general manager Billy King said Deron Williams likely will return to the lineup for the Nets' next home game, which comes against the Celtics on Tuesday. Williams has missed eight straight games since re-spraining his left ankle in the second quarter of the Nets' loss in Charlotte on Nov. 20. Williams, who spent all of training camp recovering from a sprained right ankle and corresponding bone bruise he suffered during a workout in September in Utah, has now missed 10 of the Nets' last 11 games since initially spraining his left ankle in the opening minutes of the Nets' 100-98 overtime win in Phoenix on Nov. 15.

The Nets are being true to their nature. With the excepton of a few random moments that have built false hope for their handful of fans, the Nets have stunk for years.

Its amazing how billionaires become billionaires but even more so when they buy major league teams and THINK they know how to run them! Hiring Jason Kidd with zero experience to run your company is producing exactly what you deserve.

After watching last nights game, I HAVE to conclude a big chunk of the Net's issue is coaching. Lopez had position SEVERAL times, but the ball wouldn't swing his way. For crying out loud Lopez had Amare on him who might struggle to defend my grandma these days.
Joe was almost obscure from the offense, he's their primary scorer, I didn't see a single play called for him. Most scoring shots seemed random. Just players playing on gut feel and experience.
This team is TOO talented to play THIS poorly. Kidd's gotta go, and go NOW!!. There is still time to salvage the season. They need some experience on the bench.

Even w/ DWill back, it won't change much. They were losing before he got injured. He is not a leader as I thought he would be. He is just happy that he got his max. His ankle is weak which means he will continue to re-injure that ankle. He promised that he was going to have the surgery last summer but instead he didn't.

Barkley is right, Nets and the Knicks are just plain pitiful.

That was a lame excuse of a basketball game. The Knicks suck but the Nets suck more. Wow..
