You may have noticed that I rarely talk abouth the Mets, Nets or any hockey period, well here I go.

I wanna start by saying congrats to Tom Glavine on winning his 298th victory, 2 shy of 300 wins. Thats a big accomplishment for any pitcher. But like I always say, it’s not how you start, but how you finish and the Mets are beginning to struggle. their offense has been mediocre to the point where they had to shake up the coaching staff. They fired Rick Down and replaced him with the 1st base coach, Howard Johnson. Another move which I think was kinda stupid was bringing in Ricky Henderson to coach 1st base. What the hell does he know about coaching other then showing someone how to steal a base. And wait, wasn’t he reportedly in the dugout playing poker a few years back during the NLCS?? Just Dumb!

Talk about being used!
With the injury to Nenad Krstic, the Nets gave an opportunity to Mikki Moore, a player who spent most of his time in the d-league. Moore filled in pretty good I must say, helped the Nets considerably and after the end of the season, he said would give the Nets “a discount” on resigning him. Well, he didn’t. He bolted for the money and Sacramento Kings. You had a guaranteed spot backing up Nenad and who is to say Krstic he is going to be 100 percent anyway. Plus playing with one of the top 3 point guards ever in J. Kidd who will get you the ball.. Bad Move!

Now Hockey..

I’ll try this another time..

It was pretty sad watching J. Kidd try to carry the whole team by himself. I mean, he did have a little help from Mikki Moore. Yeah, Mikki Moore not Vince Carter. Vince Carter was a know-show the entire series. I know he is getting old but so is everyone else. He should have been bustin’ the Cavs ass!

It’s time to break that time up. Starting with Carter. Get rid of him. he is not worth it. Yeah he brings fans in but at the same time it’s time to win and after a few seasons with the Nets, he has not helped when it counts.

Now Vince could opt out of his contract and sign with another team as a free-agent, but who will pay him more then 16 million dollars, the amount the Nets will be paying him if he doesn’t opt out.

Kidd is probably top 3 point guards in the league but you have to let him go in order to get younger. As for Richard Jefferson, I believe he still has some monster years ahead of him. Hopefully the injury bug will stay away in the coming seasons.

Now for the rest of the team, you have a few good young players. Marcus Williams, Nenad Krstic, Antoine Wright and Bostjan Nachbar. A nice nucleous! Start building with these guys and by the time The Nets make that move to Brooklyn, they should be dominating the Eastern Conferrence.
