Experience New Nets: What 'They' Say

Experience New Nets

East Rutherford, N.J.With so many new Nets this offseason, we thought wed tap into the NBA.com network to offer some perspective on the additions from people whove been watching them up close. It's time to Experience New Nets!

First up is Conrad Brunner, Director of Website Operations for Pacers.com, chiming in with the following thoughts on forward Troy Murphy, who spent 3 1/2 seasons in Indianapolis.

Troy Murphy

Conrad says:

What everybody knows about Murph is that hes one of the best deep-shooting big men in the league, a prolific rebounder and a double-double machine. But it's easy to miss some subtle elements of his game.

Hes a very solid decision-maker with the ball and is a good passer. When he uses the threat of the 3-point shot to draw aggressive close-outs, he can put it on the floor and is a good finisher hell surprise you with some of his dunks. Funny thing: his career-high in scoring is a relatively modest 30 points. Youd think a guy with his offensive skills wouldve hit 40 a few times in his career but it hasnt happened for whatever reason.

He also is an engaging personality. Without knowing the personalities of the rest of the Nets, its safe to guess he has the best sense of humor on the roster, with a dry, wry wit. He definitely will be missed around here but youre not going to get a point guard like Darren Collison without making a sacrifice.

Next: Jordan Farmar
