At Season's End, Not the Worst!

The final power rankings are in and the Nets who started out the worst ended, well, not the worst.  NBA.com's John Schuhmann and both of ESPN's power rankers, Marc Stein and John Hollinger, have the Nets above the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves, who've won 15 games to the Nets' 12...with two to play.

In fact, Hollinger has the Nets above both the Wolves (who've won one game in their last 22) and the Clippers (who've won only four in that same stretch).   We can argue strongly that the Nets should be even higher. Their 5-5 record over the last 10 games is better than 14 NBA teams. YES!

Schuhmann points to Terrence Williams' play as one big reason for the steady gains lately: "The best aspect of the last month has been the improvement of Terrence Williams, who's averaging 14.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.5 assists since March 1."  Stein, on the other hand, suggests "breathing is on hold until Prokhorov is approved as the new owner."
