Late to the party, but party on. Peter Vecsey waited til beyond the last minute to make his preseason predictions, turning them into post-preseason picks. Vecsey gushes over the Nets, saying they could make the Finals. He again praises the pick up of Jamaal Magloire, emphasizes Richard Jefferson's health and in a bit of un-Vescsey-like hyperbole calls Sean Williams "maybe NBA's best shot blocking rookie since, ahem, Bill Russell". Kenny Smith disagrees...but only in degree.
