This one hurts.
Remember the Brooklyn Nets? They were the plucky upstart franchise who moved over from Jersey and promised to take over the city? Well they’ve finally pulled it off. Every dominant NBA team needs a star, and the Nets signed one of the brightest in the galaxy, according to Brian Lewis.
The Nets are adding to their coaching staff, with The Post learning ex-Knick Pablo Prigioni will join the group. He will aid in development, especially helping to groom a glut of young point guards that will be key in the rebuilding process.
Not Pablo. NOT PABLO!!!
The Knicks legends, sneaker extraordinaire and knower of all the secrets will join the Nets next season as an assistant coach. To rub even more salt in the wound, Marc Berman reported that the Knicks had interest in bringing Pablo aboard, but the lack of a current head coach made that impossible.
Nets announce Pablo Prigioni to coaching staff. Spent a week with them this season. Knicks had interest but have no head coach to pull trigger.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) April 24, 2018
You finally win, Mikhail Prokhorov. New York City is yours. The Nets will make the playoffs before the Knicks. The Nets will win multiple titles before the Knicks even win a playoff series. We’re doomed.
