It's called "CHEMISTRY"... Pretty simple concept!! When you have a bunch of talented jerk's, you can't just throw them together and expect them to play well... They need to be unselfish and buy into the "TEAM" concept first.... Complete waste of money!!!

P.S. At least the T-wolves have some pretty good character "Team" players!!! Money far better spent than the Nets roster

So here's an owner so rich he can easily pay the luxury tax, a tax that even teams like the Lakers are trying to avoid or reduce. I guess when you reach a certain level of extreme wealth, it all comes down to toys, whether in the form of multiple homes, cars, yachts, professional sports teams...This guy might ask himself, WWBD? what would Bill (Gates) do. Just think, that extra 100 million could have gone to the Gates Foundation or any number of other organizations who are helping to alleviate human misery.

The Nets are down four players with injuries, but I don't recall the Timberwolves getting much sympathy last year when they usually had three or four starters out. Save the sympathy for after the game, when hopefully the Wolves will have properly manhandled their hurting opponent.
