He will be their 2nd best from now on after All Star DLo. Wish he stays healthy as he had too many bad injuries in his career already.


I don't think so. Levert will be their best player. Their coach likes to sit down Russel in crucial 4th quarter minutes because Levert and Dinwiddie can attack the basket.


Lol. DLO can score in the paint(he's crafty), midrange and from 3p. Bet you haven't been watching him 'cos still salty.

LeVert was shooting 31% from 3P before injury this season. LeVert was playing at a good level, but DLO has been playing on anther level for 40+ games now.

just admit you were wrong about him and wish he was still a Laker.

It's okay.

LeVert might end up being a better player than Dlo. He really has true two way potential.

But it’s clear it’s a slight dig at Russell

But it's wrapped in "might" and "potential."

DLO was selected by the NBA/coaches as an all star reserve? Does it pain people that much to just appreciate that?

My favorite two lines:

1. yeah, but it's in the East.
2. yeah, but he was an injury reserve.

Fine. But which of our current guys (and Jules/Nance/JC/etc.) are even close to be selected as an East all star reserve?

The team desperately needs Dinwiddie back because their offense disappears when Russell goes out and Napier comes in.

D’Angelo Russell is the youngest player in NBA History to hit 500 three pointers, at 22 years old.


Haven't checked but I think Booker will probably pass him in this feat? Still a neat accomplishment

yeah booker only needs 19 more to get to 500 and he's 8 months younger

however, dlo has played 3 less games than him total and like 1200 less minutes

i am in regret mode for sure now.
our tank efforts netted us dlo, randle, ball, bi, hart, kuz, zub. we dont have dlo and randle anymore, and they may end up being the best ones. full regret mode! especially if we dont get the stars that lbj is supposed to bring.

Not true. Their ppg is close and Levert is more efficient. Levert is also a better defender. Brooklyn considers Levert as their best player.

I am not being salty. It is just that Levert is their best player. But I am fine with Russell still playing for Lakers.

That perception on realgm has shifted quite a bit since early season. Caris has some catching up to do if he wants to outshine the Net's lone all star. There are a few hold outs like you, but even they have been pretty quiet recently. Russell, Levert, and Dinwiddie are a very nice complement of guards and they are 22, 24, and 25 years old. The Nets are going to be a fun team for quite a few years if they can avoid the injury bug.
