The new view of the Nets is of an elite title contender rather than an intriguing but inconsistent team with suspect depth...that's what back-to-back wins over Detroit and Phoenix will do for you. A nine-game winning streak doesn't hurt either. So expect to see a lot of stories in the next few days annointing the team as one of the NBA's best. It's already started.
