Ask Nets captain Jason Kidd why the team, moribund through its first 20 games, suddenly went off like a rocket a week ago and he will tell you sacrifice. Ask Richard Jefferson and he will tell you something a bit different, it was knowing your role and not worrying about others. Ask Vince Carter and the answer will be figuring out how to relax. Ask the rest of the NBA and they will just shrug because they knew the Nets' talent wasn't going to permit them to fail for long.
