Something to Prove on Sunday

With Sunday's game looming, a lot of Net--and Pacer--players understand they have something to prove. Richard Jefferson has to prove to others that he is as good a basketball player as he thinks he is; Vince Carter that he can carry a team through the playoffs; Jason Collins that he can defend Jermaine O'Neal; Nenad Krstic that he can handle the mounting pressure...and Anthony Johnson that the Nets made a mistake in letting him go. How about Jason Kidd? He has nothing to prove.
