The Nets' record and the stats tell the same story: the Nets are a good team, not a great team, a team capable of winning the division, not the conference. It boils down to two issues: health and consistency. YES Network's Al Iannazzone and Joe Auriemma lay it out in their weekly Insider and Stat Pack. Iannazzone notes that the Nets are still trying to make a deal, but might have to settle for Tim Thomas. Auriemma says that the Nets need to become the Big Four if they are going to win big.
