Gary Sussman's been around the Nets for a long time. The team's v.p. for public relations and announcer knows all about changing the culture. Been through it more than once. In his end of the season Sussman Sez, Sussman writes about how this time, it's different. Wednesday's loss and Thursday's locker cleanout tell a tale about the current edition of the Nets. He notes the difference from last season's end, which as he writes, "was at a far deeper level of despair". It may be a "longer and more arduous" climb, but it's started.
