The Brooklyn Nets are all-in for the 2013-14 season. How will this play out? We go 5-on-5:

 

 

 

1. Fact or Fiction: The Nets have the best starting five in basketball.

 

 

 

 

 

Chris Forsberg, ESPNBoston.com: Fiction. On paper, the Nets have a very talented starting five. But let’s see it on the floor before we start handing out superlatives. For the moment, Miami holds the right to all of the “best” titles, including the only one that truly matters in the NBA.

 

 

Jeremy Gordon, Brooklyn’s Finest: Fiction. If it’s where each individual player might fall within the ranking of his position, then sure — you can make an argument that the Nets have a top-10 player at every spot. But it’s still the sum that ultimately matters, and this Nets starting five needs to play at least one game before they make any designs on the top position.

Michael Wallace, ESPN.com: Fiction. On paper? Yes. It’s hard to out-fantasy that unit of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. But dig a bit deeper based on recent evidence, and there are some serious concerns with each one of those players, from age to consistency. Until the Nets prove their value on the court, it’s all fiction.

Brian Windhorst, ESPN.com: Fiction. They have the most high-profile starting five, I would agree with that. We need to see them play together to have a feel for how they define their roles. There are two All-Stars from last season in the lineup. The Heat had three All-Stars in their lineup, the Bulls have two and get Derrick Rose back, the Clippers have two, the Rockets have two, the Knicks have two, the Thunder have two, and the Spurs have two. There are a lot of excellent starting lineups, let’s wait and see.

Ohm Youngmisuk, ESPNNew York.com: Fiction. Few can match the name recognition, and there will be nights when they look like an All-Star squad. However, Jason Kidd’s starters may not even play a ton together for much of the season because he has to regulate Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce’s minutes. And there isn’t one Nets starter who’s in the top two at his position.

 

 


 

 

2. Fact or Fiction: KG and Pierce are still All-Star caliber players.

 

 

 

 

 

Forsberg: Fact. With Boston’s 2007-08 squad as a guide, the Nets ought to expect a downturn in individual production from all of their stars as they assemble, but Garnett and Pierce still can make a case for the midseason exhibition. Garnett, a fan-voted starter last season, rebounded like an All-Star in the postseason and his defense remains a game-changer, while Pierce’s all-around efforts help him garner consideration annually.

Gordon: Fact. When they play, that is. Last season, Garnett averaged his lowest minutes count since his first year; Pierce, in his career. Their per-36 stats remained the same and the Celtics were better with them on the court, but Jason Kidd managing their minutes should keep them off the All-Star squad, barring some unexpected collapse from the rest of the competition.

Wallace: Fact. But only based on fans voting them in as starters. Otherwise, they’ll have a difficult time at this stage beating out LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh and possibly Josh Smith at those dynamic frontcourt spots. If Brooklyn lives up to expectations, the Nets’ balance may make it difficult for Pierce or Garnett to register the numbers necessary to make them surefire All-Stars.

Windhorst: Fact. Pierce had a pretty good season last year but had to compete with the likes of James, Anthony, Deng and George as a wing player and didn’t make it. Garnett is still one of the most valuable big men in the game. There is some question about the minutes they’ll probably get with such a deep team and that may affect their numbers and perhaps their candidacy.

Youngmisuk: Fiction. Because of age, new roles and the minutes limit they should be on, Garnett and Pierce likely won’t be All-Star caliber players this season. Nor do they have to be during the regular season. They still may be voted All-Stars, but the goal is to have Garnett and Pierce fresh and playing like All-Stars in the postseason.

 

 


 

 

3. Fact or Fiction: Deron Williams will reassert himself as a top-five PG.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forsberg: Fact. With both Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo coming off ACL rehab, this is probably easier than it sounds. But Williams should absolutely benefit from the additional talent around him. After averaging 18.9 points and 7.7 assists in a bit of a “down” year last season, it’s scary to think of the numbers Williams is capable of posting now. And team success has a way of making every floor general look even better.

Gordon: Fact. He’s got tough competition, but he was already playing like a top-five point after the All-Star break. The tricky thing is that all the best points play so differently that it’s hard to rank them along a firm scale — how do you value Stephen Curry against Rajon Rondo, for example? — but Deron should be in the conversation.

Wallace: Fact. I’m willing to write off the past two seasons based on the injuries, turmoil and drastic roster turnover. But D-Will is all out of excuses at this point. He’s either going to solidify his stature as an elite player or he’ll hitch himself to Joe Johnson as the biggest bust of a starting backcourt max money could buy. He’ll get his mojo back.

Windhorst: Fact. If you look at the numbers after the All-Star break last season you could make the argument he was already there. Williams seemed to be soured a bit by that season and a half he was mired on bad teams in Newark and didn’t come in the best shape or with the best mindset to Brooklyn. He seemed like a different player in March and April and you would assume he carries that over to November.

Youngmisuk: Fact. Williams will be even more rejuvenated with the talent surrounding him. He will be eager to show that this is his team and veterans such as Garnett and Pierce will make him better. Also, Kidd — his friend, mentor and coach –- will push the right buttons and get the best out of Williams.

 

 

 


 

 

4. Fact or Fiction: Coaching will be the Nets’ biggest weakness in 2013-14.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forsberg: Fiction. Coaching is one of the team’s biggest wild cards at the moment given the untested nature of first-year coach Jason Kidd. That said, having a proven top assistant such as Lawrence Frank will ease Kidd’s transition and prevent coaching from hurting this team. Coaching will get blamed as the Nets’ biggest weakness if they struggle, but chances are the Nets will have more glaring issues elsewhere.

Gordon: Fact. Only by default, though. It’s hard to look at the lineup and see a strongly identifiable weakness, and we know that Kidd is still learning the ropes — some of the plays during his first Summer League games were drawn up by Frank, who’s surely going to justify his fat contract. It hopefully will be less so as the year wears on.

 

 

Wallace: Fiction. Kidd has a solid mentor beside him on the bench in Frank. Kidd was always a coach on the floor during his remarkable career at point guard. Managing clutch situations, egos and minutes will be a challenge as coach. But he’s got a team of veterans who appear to have his back. But it’s still early. Adversity hasn’t struck yet. Age will be their biggest strength — and potential weakness.

Windhorst: Fiction. While I think it is a risk to trust a team with such championship aspirations to a rookie coach, health will be a huge factor. This is an older team and their youngest star, Brook Lopez, is coming off foot surgery. Last season, injuries to Lopez and Joe Johnson really gave the Nets problems. If they’re healthy, they’ll be contenders.

Youngmisuk: Fiction. Kidd may be a rookie and there certainly will be a learning curve. Kidd, though, will lean on his staff, especially Frank. The Nets have potentially bigger pitfalls such as health, age and chemistry.

 

 

 


 

 

5. Fact or Fiction: The Nets will win a championship by 2015.

 

 

 

 

 

Forsberg: Fiction. Money can build you a competitive team and a fantasy roster, but championship teams have a little something extra and we won’t know if Brooklyn has that until we see this group on the floor. The Nets will give themselves a short window to compete for a crown, but winning one in the next two seasons is no slam dunk, particularly if the group in Miami keeps its band together.

 

 

Gordon: You’re not getting me to answer this one with a straight face. If everything breaks right for them — Garnett and Pierce’s health, Kidd’s feel for the job, etc. — the Nets should surely be in the running. But all of that means they carry more risk than any other contender, too. (Hey, the boom-or-bust thing is kind of fun, right?)

Wallace: Fiction. It’s hard to say for sure that any team will certainly win a title by 2015. But the Nets have their work cut out with the Heat, Pacers and Bulls collectively in the midst of their prime. Considering Garnett and Pierce have a relatively short window of opportunity, the Nets have this season and next to get it done. I’ll believe how reliable they are when I see it. But I wouldn’t be absolutely stunned if they broke through.

Windhorst: Fiction. I can’t possibly predict what the landscape will be in the 2014-15 season, so basically I’m answering this on this season. If all teams stay healthy, I believe the Heat and Pacers are still better than the Nets. The Bulls are right there as well. I am not picking them to win the East at this point, so I can’t say they’ll win the title.

Youngmisuk: Fiction. They will contend but they might be the third-best team in the East. If they don’t win it all, the task only gets more difficult. The Nets’ cap-strapped roster will only get older while the 2014 superstar free-agent crop may alter the balance of power in the league, with the top players constantly looking to join forces to create the next star-studded team.

Football has been a popular sport for many years and, not only has it created some of the worlds biggest football fans, it also has gotten a number of these fans into collecting Football Sports Memorabilia. The fact, however, is that collecting football memorabilia is different for everyone.

Taste is Subjective

Some people go for the standard types of memorabilia like jerseys, trading cards, signed items like footballs, shoes, jerseys, or glossy photos. The good thing is that there’s a lot out there if that is what a person is into. However, people’s tastes are quite different and, sometimes, the weirder the memorability the better. Since football has been and still continues to be popular, there’s a lot of strange stuff on the market.

Authenticate

The one thing that needs to be considered is the authenticity of the memorabilia. There are some items that are easy to tell if they are real, but because people will pay big money for football memorabilia, it’s not unheard of for sellers to create replicas of memorabilia. They often sell those replicas as genuine articles.

Reputable Sellers

That’s why it’s important to make sure the person or the organization selling the merchandise is reputable. With the Internet, it’s quite easy to do some rather in-depth research to determine if a memorability retailer is on the up and up.

Budgeting for Memorabilia

Lastly, it’s important to set a budget. Not everyone has unlimited funds to spend on memorabilia. It may be tempting to buy something that is rare or collectible, but there are practical limits. If an item is an investment, it will be important to consider how likely it is the item will go up in value. If it’s for a personal collection, it’s important to not go into the poor house because of purchasing a signed football helmet.

While this may not be all that a person will need to consider when buying football memorabilia, these helpful tips are a good place to start. They will help you to get what you want and avoid spending a small fortune on memorabilia items that aren’t authentic. If you’re buying memorabilia for collection or investment purposes, these are good tips to follow.

Tea is believed to have originated in China. Chinese people are still consuming tea thousands of years later. Over the course of centuries, tea made its way around the globe. Many countries from all over the world enjoy tea to this day. However, there are many differences between the world of tea in Asian countries and in the Western world. The differences are from how a tea tastes to how it is prepared. The one that seems to remain consistent throughout all the regions is that both oriental tea and western tea is still linked to social gatherings.

In China, oriental tea is considered highly important by their society. Tea houses can easily be found in a majority of Chinese neighborhoods as well as in various business districts. All throughout the country, a typical tea house in China will be flooded with students and business men in the later afternoon hours. In the late night hours, the house is overtaken by those who stay up late and night owls. There are also formal tea-houses in which one can find a wide range of both Chinese and Japanese tea leaves. Tea vendors are also prevalent in this area. They specialize in selling tea products like leaves, pots, cups and other instruments.

In the United States, however, western tea is often served as a substitute for coffee when served hot and a substitute for soda when served cold. Whereas China has the afternoon tea ritual, the beverage is consumed generally throughout the day in the US. Before World War II, green tea and black tea were equally preferred as the tea of choice for about 40% of its population. The other 20% preferred to oolong tea.

Because the war cut off their supply from China and Japan, the US turned to India which makes black tea. The black tea eventually took over as the preference of Americans. Green, oolong and white tea have all started rising in popularity again in recent years. They are considered to be health food. In recent years, coffee houses across the United States started to serve customers sweet, spiced milky tea known as chai, which is based on an Indian tea called masala chai. A tea from Taiwan called bubble tea is also gaining in popularity. Another popular trend with western tea is to drink a decaffeinated version, whereas this practice is not seen with oriental tea.

W Hotel is the new ski resort in the Swiss Alps that combines the romance of Swiss chalets with the sporty spirit of skiing…

Global jetsetters and Verbier enthusiasts now have immediate access to ski-in and ski out alpine action. Four traditional wooden chalet-style buildings, interconnected by contemporary glass atriums give shape to the new ski resort at the foot of the slopes next to the Mdran gondola in Verbier, a village located in south-western Switzerland in the canton of Valais and a famous ski area in the Swiss Alps.

Inspired by the dynamic carving of skis through snow, it brings an indelible, distinct New York City glamour to the Swiss Alps. Conceptualized and designed by Concrete under project architect, Lisa Hassanzadeh, the hotel provides guests with an unforgettable experience using interiors that complement and contrast the breathtaking scenery around the hotel.

The design features smooth lines that carve through the spaces; a movement that derives directly from the tracks left by the activities in the mountains Verbier is so famous for: the carved slopes during wintertime or the smooth mountain bike tracks in summer.

Contrasting elements – a 6m wide fireplace inside vs. the snow covered landscape outside; prolific application of natural materials such as wood, leather, felt, wool and fur wood vs. black and silver glossy materials and glacier inspired glass bars; carved blocks of natural stone vs. glamorous inlays of brass and backlit marble, juxtapose the simplicity, beauty and energy of Verbier and the contemporary cool of New York. It is interesting to see how the mountains are ushered into the hotel by reinterpreting local elements in a contemporary way: a giant staircase (a contemporary reference to the Swiss railway system) in one of the glass atriums connecting the four chalet buildings has the mountain flowing into the built form with comfortable benches, where guests can relax, hang out, meet and flirt. While this offers a spectacular view down the valley by day, by night it pulsates with an intimate mood illuminated by deep red light. The resort boasts of individualistic signature spaces and 123 stylish guest rooms and suites that are akin to a boutique hotel within the hotel. Specialty treatment is ingrained into the design and designation of the suites and public areas. The romanticism of the Swiss chalet-styled buildings in warm contrast to the sleek furnishings and contemporary lighting make this get-away a perfect holiday spot – luxuriant, uber chic and comfy!
