A couple of quick comments. First, so much for playing an "up-tempo" game. The Nets play at a league-average pace. Second, as noted recently, the Nets have about a league-average defense, as measured by points per possession. The offense, however, is slightly below average. While the defense has certainly not been up to the standards the team has set for itself, hey've generally played well enough for the team to be at least a .500 club. If the offense was at least league average--and, really, who among us would have thought that they'd have a below-average one?--then the team would have won more than it had lost in the early going. The team actually has shot better than the opposition and gets a higher percentage of assists.

Here we can identify the primary Net deficiencies in the early going: offensive rebounding and turnover differential. The team is pretty good at getting to the line, and in restricting the opposition's offensive rebounding.

Here are composite stats for all the players. Courtesy of his recent play, Hassan Adams has been the most effective player, while Twin has been the worst. The second-most effective? Cliff Robinson, which is one reason the team suffered a letdown when he was injured recently. Now, for comparison, Magic Johnson averaged a 120 offensive rating for his career; Larry Bird a 114; Robert Parish a 111; Michael Jordan a 119; Charles Barkley a 119; John Stockton a 119; Patrick Ewing a 105. All of these, with the exception of Ewing, repeatedly surpassed 120 during their prime years. You can find all these numbers at www.basketball-reference.com.

Also, note that the team possessions are spread pretty well among five players.

Please let me hear your opinion on this report, and how (if at all) you'd like to see it modified in future months.
