#new jersey nets

David Berri has some great points as to why the Brooklyn Nets suck. But what’s really crazy is that not only do they suck, they’re the most expensive suck ever:

All these All-Stars, though, came at a cost. Back in 2009-10, the New Jersey Nets spent less on payroll than all but four of the NBA’s 30 teams. This year, the Brooklyn Nets—with a payroll beyond $100 million—are spending more than anyone. Indeed, once you figure in the penalties for going above the league’s salary cap, the Nets are the most expensive basketball team ever (and by a very large margin).
