It's Official: Atlantic is Awful

Marc Stein of ESPN has found the statistic that ends all debate about the mediocrity of the Atlantic Division this season. The Nets' 6-9 record is the worst for any division leader at the end of any November in NBA history, beating the previous low set by Baltimore with a 10-13 mark in 1971. Stein thinks the early season should be an aberration, that the Nets in particular should be able to gain respectability before the playoffs...he hopes.
