As each of the top-tier free agents go up against the Nets, they're asked if the team's horrid record would affect what they'll do come July. Joe Johnson and Chris Bosh said it would, with Bosh basically saying, forget it. For the rest of them, it's less of an issue. David Lee, who is becoming Mr. Double-Double, likes the Nets future. "They're a clear example of a team whose talent level doesn't reflect the record" says Lee. He particularly likes the idea of playing with Brook Lopez and moving from undersized center to power forward. So does Brook Lopez. "It would be great," Lopez said, "a guy who loves to crash the offensive glass for so many extra possessions". He even thinks a frontcourt of Lopez, Lee and Yi Jianlian could work.
