Infinite Nets Week 13: Rough Waters

Man those guys really love romcoms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2uNp80wcZY I've gone viral, only none none of you guys really know it. That's fine. On January 2nd, I'd posted a brief opinion piece on The Irony of Fate. It's a Russian movie, so unless you are well versed in their history, every single reference will go

Infinite Nets Week 12: Revenge Week

God those Pelican and Grizzlies losses earlier this year sucked.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LoTHq5mGAQ To be a fan in 2019 is to consider yourself an expert. The experience of following either a team or a sport will inevitably force the viewer to not only believe, but to loudly proclaim to friends and complete strangers over

Infinite Nets Week 11: My Neighborhood Is Killing Me

This blog has to be about something more than simply recapping the Brooklyn Nets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIXBCmxtvEM I'm going to have to move. Not out of the city itself, or even the borough, but further away from the trendy, downtown adjacent realm where I live right now. And as much as I try to

Infinite Nets Week 10: Busting Ass Before Christmas

I've been taking you for granted. It's partly my nature. Ask my wife or ex-girlfriends. Or my employers. The cycle never breaks. In the beginning I will step in to a new project/relationship/environment/habit with the work ethic of a completely earnest Amish man. I become ill with the thought of

Infinite Nets Week Eight: Tank Warfare?

"If we win one tomorrow, that's called a winning streak" Writers note: I'm playing though pain. My daughter has been in daycare for a few months, which means my daughter has been sick for a few months. And as a result I am sick. And also, I had to finish off

Infinite Notes Week Seven: The Downward Spiral

  I've made a huge mistake They claim that it's always darkest before the dawn, but times like this you start to wonder if that light at the end of the tunnel is just the beckoning call of the afterlife that you're supposed to walk toward in death. The Brooklyn Nets are

Infinite Nets Week 5: It’s Wintertime

"The world is so cold" Winter has come. The worthlessly pedantic will tell me that autumn doesn't punch out until the 21st, but that's a dweeb's way of viewing things. The leaves are down and snow has fallen. Thanksgiving isn't until next week, but sometimes Thanksgiving comes after the fall. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCBXd7HZmaE Similarly, the

Infinite Nets Week 4: A More Finite Nets

Good Lord Hello and welcome to the new format of Infinite Nets. We're going to a weekly recap as opposed to a daily version. Why are we doing a weekly recap? Because, hell man, I can watch every game, but I sure as hell can't come up with compelling content for

Infinite Nets Game 10: On Tanking

This is a bit of a manifesto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t55mPcfeZX0 The Nets are taking on the 76ers, and as it will be for at least the next several years, this means that I will be forced to remember and evaluate Sam Hinke's infamous "Process" and the very idea of tanking. To be clear, Sam

Infinite Nets Game 9: My Perimeter Is Breached

Mom, you've really got to stop that shit. My little cocoon has been invaded. Contrary to popular opinion, these Nets have not driven me to insanity yet. For eight beautiful games, they've actually kept me occupied. My writing has had a focus as opposed to my getting bored with a novel

Infinite Nets Game 7: After Game Rant

Hello My Honey, Hello My Baby, Hello My Ragtime Gal Of course. Of fucking course they did. I had just gotten done talking my ass off about how the Nets weren't that bad. I swore they were legit. The trash Knicks fans at my office would have to watch them for
