As Dave D'Alessandro telegraphed this week, NBA beat writers think that Vince Carter and Jason Kidd have a shot at making the all-NBA teams this season, but essentially the two Nets are competing against each other. In a wrap up of all-NBA honors by Sunday hoop columnists, Cartr and Kidd each wind up with two votes for the third team. Nenad Krstic gets some consideration for most improved, Lawrence Frank for coach. D'Alessandro proves he's no homer, not selecting any Nets.
