    Nets star Kevin Durant will miss Thursday night’s marquee TNT game against the Lakers and LeBron James at Staples Center because of a hamstring injury. The Nets could get Kyrie Irving back, as the guard is listed as probable after missing their last game with lower back tightness. This will mark a third straight missed game for Durant. After straining his left hamstring, he sat out the Nets’ back-to-back victories in Sacramento on Monday and Phoenix on Tuesday. Irving started suffering lower back tightness during the game versus the Kings and got treatment at halftime of that win. He came back to pour in a season-high 40 points before sitting out the comeback win the next night against the Suns. “We’re confident it will be short-term,” coach Steve Nash said at the time of Irving’s injury. After James Harden scored 38 points to help the Nets overturn a 21-point...

    The longstanding feud between Nets star Kevin Durant and hoops Hall of Famer Charles Barkley may never end.

    Coronavirus vaccine: Texas doctor accused of stealing a vial with nine doses Democrats urge tech giants to change algorithms that facilitate spread of extremist content Is winning everything? As the NBAs anti-heroes, the Nets Big 3 could upend superstar norms The extra pounds still hang off James Harden’s belly — the final remnants of the recklessness he weaponized to barrel his way out of the Houston Rockets — but they’re starting to melt away. He’s embarking on a familiar playbook for disgruntled stars who take PR hits en route to new teams: win, so your aims seem justified in the end. The strategy is rooted mostly in distraction. How many times can one mention how Harden arrived in Brooklyn in the midst of him racking up triple-doubles? The weight gain, if it affected his game at all, gives him more girth to bully defenders, the kookiest example yet of...

He also admitted to laughing when Collin Sexton spoiled the debut of the most intriguing trio in the NBA with a career night — in Irving’s signature shoes, at that. Some new days have executive orders trying to erase damage from the past while other new days present all the work that’s yet to be done. The Nets are clearly in the latter, evidenced by the Cleveland Cavaliers outlasting them in a 147-135 double-overtime marathon that won’t be remembered much should they make it to July. There won’t be a Sexton dropping 20 straight points...

While the GM won’t call it Finals-or-bust for Brooklyn, he admits his team has the talent to get there — if it can get all that talent on the same page. “I don’t want to get into what’s a failure and what’s not. Everybody knows what this team is positioned and capable of potentially doing,” said Marks. “Now we’ve got to get everybody jelling, everyone on the same page.

    Triple threats In a blockbuster trade Wednesday afternoon, the Nets landed eight-time All-Star James Harden, creating the most talented big three in the NBA by pairing Harden with former Thunder teammate Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Here is a look at the top trios of the 21st century and how they performed together: Heat, 2010-14: LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade This worked out extremely well.

Warriors, 2016-19: Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson The addition of Durant took the Warriors from great to almost unbeatable.

    As Nets general manager Sean Marks begins his coaching search in earnest, superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will be consulted. But they apparently won’t be the only ones. Marks is expected to pick the brains of several Nets above and beyond his two superstars. Multiple sources have indicated he will likely touch base with other players Brooklyn has invested in long term, including DeAndre Jordan and Spencer Dinwiddie. One source suggested Caris LeVert as well.

    Since the 2019 offseason, the Milwaukee Bucks have already revealed their plan to offer reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo a massive contract extension this fall. However, as of now, the “Greek Freak” still hasn’t given them any assurance whether he’s planning to ink a new deal in the 2020 offseason or test the free agency waters in the summer of 2021. There are several factors that could affect Antetokounmpo’s decision to stay in Milwaukee, including the outcome of the 2019-20 NBA season. If they succeed to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy this year, it is more likely for Antetokounmpo to sign a max contract extension with the Bucks. However, if they once again fail to achieve their main goal, some people think that he could follow the footsteps of other superstars and start finding his way out of Milwaukee. In a recent appearance on ESPN’s Get Up, via Youtube, Charles...
