So, that whole Take Over NYC, the Blueprint, the billboard — all that? The Nets' big plan? They're not exactly killing it right now; it turns out running the NBA is harder than Mikhail Prokhorov might have thought. The big signings: Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro, Travis Outlaw, and Jordan Farmar. Oooooh. The Nets have a payroll near the league minimum. Having missed out on LeBron and company, the general idea seems to be, "Go Young, and Wait for the Next Run of Free Agents When Brooklyn Happens." It does seem like Jay-Z got awfully quiet all of a sudden.
