The Brooklyn Nets' season has been a disaster. Brook Lopez is out for the season with a broken foot. Deron Williams needs procedures on his ankles again and is in a walking boot. Andrei Kirilenko has hardly played and the duo of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett that came in to bring title aspirations has been mediocre at best.
That doesn't mean the Nets can't still be entertaining. Garnett explained to reporters this week why they've starting referring to Joe Johnson as "Joe Jesus." The explanation was pretty great.
"Because he might not be there when you call on him but he's there when you need him."
Considering Joe Jesus has nailed a couple of winning shots and had some clutch moments in a disappointing season, this seems to be pretty dead-on.
