Nachbar, Moore Unlikely Heroes

Boki Nachbar was the dumpee in a salary dump trade last February then barely took off his warm-ups the rest of the year. Mikki Moore came to the Nets in a trade that was hardly noticed, as insurance for a wounded rookie. Now both are key players for a team decimated by injuries and other issues. They represent the NBA journeyman who asks for a chance, then make the most of it. And to make it even better, the NBA has rescinded a $1,000 fine against Moore and instead, suspended Andres Nocioni for a flagrant Thursday night.
