ESPN and the stats-heavy Basketball Prospectus have two different views of the Nets future. In its "Future Power Rankings", ESPN puts the Nets at #18, a drop of one place since November despite the imminent approval of Mikhail Prokhorov and successes in Brooklyn. BP, on the other hand, goes hog-wild for the Nets, putting them right at top, mainly because of Brook Lopez and that draft pick.
