    I just read this too. Damn that sucks, was looking forward to Brook playing against the world. Actually, nevermind, he does that every night in New Jersey.

    as a Nets fan I just hope he’ll be healthy again when the season starts. I also think he’ll be with the team in 2012, but we’ll see.

    Sucks, he is the third, if not the second best center in the league.

    no hes not…dwight,kaman,al hortford, al jefferson(if you consider him a 5), Bogut, bynum are all better. Leading a bad team in scoring proves nothing. Im pretty sure lee nailon led the hornets in scoring a few years back…next year he couldnt even get on the floor with the sixers. Lopez is a good player, but top 3 is a strech

    this team can’t catch a break. here’s to hoping tyson chandler is ultra-ready.

    what is mono?

    Mononucleosis? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infectious_mononucleosis)…

    For some reason, I’m just not surprised that Brook or Robin would get this. They seem like 7-foot tall, 16 year-old surfers.

    I agree that it was much of a stretch. But I couldn’t really think of many centers in the league now that are going to be the beast that Brook is going to become.

    I would not be surprised if this team routinely runs 3-guard sets
