Basketball Marshon Brooks: The man who will bring basketball back to Jersey? by Staff Post July 20, 2011 Marshon Brooks: 6’5”, 195 with a record breaking 7’1” wingspan and a better vertical leap, ¾ court sprint, and in lane agility than the Nets previous three picks, Terrence Williams, Damion James, and Derek Favors. It is clear just by looking at Brooks that he is an athlete, but last night Brooks also proved himself as a well rounded basketball player, and even more than that, a scorer of which the Nets have been desperate for. For the past week, Marshon Brooks has been inviting Nets fans out to watch him play in a Nike Pro-City tournament. For those who went out to watch, Brooks put on a show. Brooks impressed all spectators, dropping 48 points and looking like the clear star on the court. Although it wasn’t against the NBA elite, Brooks was matched up against notable NBA players Jamario Moon(25 points) and John Lucas III(28 points). Brooks wowed the crowd with his ability to create his own shot and his incredible competitiveness. Brooks played 110% the entire game and was swamped by fans afterwards looking for autographs. Brooks was the 25th overall draft pick in 2011 by the Boston Celtics and was traded to the Nets shortly after for 27th overall pick JaJuan Johnson, along with a second round pick in 2014. Brooks played college basketball for the Providence Friars, where he had an incredible senior season. Brooks was second leading scorer in the nation averaging 24.6 points per game and was one of 20 finalists for the 2011 John R. Wooden Award. Brooks most notable college game came on February 23, 2011 against Notre Dame, when Brooks scored 52 points on 20 of 28 shooting. He tied the Providence school record and broke the Big East record for points in a game. With the lockout in the NBA and players like Sasha Vujacic playing overseas for this season, Coach Avery Johnson and the Nets, who currently only have one other shooting guard(Anthony Morrow) on the roster, are looking for Brooks to stay in shape in the off-season and come ready to play when the lockout ends. The Nets are hoping Brooks will continue to improve and be the dynamic star that will help rebuild the franchise in what is to be their final year in New Jersey. Nets fans finally have something to look forward to when the lockout ends(which is hopefully sooner rather than later), when they get to see Deron Williams and Marshon Brooks in the backcourt. Nets fans get ready, Marshon Brooks is the future of Nets basketball. neurontin shingles pills medrol side effects ivf hcl tretinoin online coupon for sale rivatuner fan speed download online lamictal information leaflet Buy Without Prescription Cialis soft tabs online usa glucotrol xl flomax Buy Without Prescription alli rogers usa Buy ethionamide joint pain Buy Medrol 24 mg generic accutane 30 mg online side effects of methotrexate shot tabs doxycycline acne came back Buy Without Prescription motrin dosage amounts side effects dosage for topamax for weight loss for sale zocor 10 mg price drug bupropion sr 100 price hcl cozaar over counter for sale lithium drug fever lozol indapamide Buy Without Prescription Post Views: 1,370 The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Staff Post Latest posts by Staff Post (see all) In The Zone Announces Initial Podcast Lineup - November 13, 2020 The Essential Resources You Need to Start Your Own Gym in 2020 - February 6, 2020 Wilder vs Fury II – How the second fight will be different to the first? - February 5, 2020 Early turnovers, defensive struggles plague the Scarlet Knights - January 26, 2020 Related TopicsBasketballDeron WilliamsMarShon BrooksNew Jersey Nets 1 Comment 1 Comment You must be logged in to post a comment Login Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
