If you're a season ticket holder all I can say for you is :doh1:

I mean on the one hand I feel horrible that you're locked in to paying a ton of money to a horrifically terrible team, but on the other hand I mean record aside I just don't see how you could support a team that is ashamed to associate with New Jersey and wants to leave you as soon as they can

A real :doh1: all around

The Nets made it clear they were marketing the team to NBA fans and not Nets fans. Remember the reversible jerseys that was the uniform of the other team? If you're a season ticket holder, you get to see the very best of the league dominate the Nets each night! Only problem is they are all done after 3 quarters.

Still, as bad as the Nets are (and they're sh!t) do they end the season with the worst overall record in NBA history? Currently that honor belongs to the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76er's, when they finished the year 9-73.
Something NEW for the Nets to aspire perspire to do. ;)

30 games logged.. 2 victories to show for it. That 36 year old record is going down folks. :wub:

Wow, i haven't really payed attention to the nets since they won a game, but they are 2-28? That has to be the worst record in any sport after 30 games.

John Wall is a stud. The Nets will likely finish with the worst record and still not win the lottery. Wall will be taken before they get a chance to pick him...watch....

I would absolutely love it if they finished with a sh!t record and still got the worst pick possible...it'd be a rightfully deserved dose of karma.

...oh it's going to happen. Half the season officially in the books, and their trifecta of victories still stands.
I've never seen a tailspin like this in all my life. 3 wins in 41 games?! It's astonishing.

The photo that accompanies that article is brutal. And it looks like the game is actually going on in the background, so you can't chalk up the empty seats to "it's still halftime" or "the game hasn't started and people are still filing in." Absolutely brutal. Makes you wonder how their attendance number is as high as 12,905.

You what is even sadder than this picture? The fact, that a good percentage of those "taken" seats are just given away. The Nets sales staff comes into Hoboken every so often just giving away stacks of tickets to people on the streets, I think 1 in 10 actually take the tickets.

Apparently Nets CEO Brett Yormark got into it with a couple of Nets fans, one of whom was wearing a brown paper bag over his head, at a game last week.
