This is despicable. The Nets just dumped their best player for twenty five cents on the dollar, and for what - a shot at Lebron in 2 years? Unreal. Why would anyone come to this team now when they have some of the thinnest talent in the league. On the flip side, they're still better than the Knicks, but for how long.

The Nets just sealed themeselves to another losing season... why would you trade one of your best players away? Bad front office job by the Nets. As a Net fan I don't like this horrible move, the nets could have built a good team around jefferson and carter and now one of those core players is gone.... looks like there is another frustrating season on the way....don't get me wrong, yi and simmons are o.k players but come on, giving jefferson away??? What are they thinking?! Its things like these that make you want to give up watching basketball....
