Charley Rosen of FOX Sports, Johnny Ludden of Yahoo! and Michael Ventre of MSNBC are the latest pundits to make preseason predictions about the Nets. Rosen says in spite of their star power, "there is something dull and unsatisfying about this team". Ludden thinks the onus is on RJ and both he and Ventre believe the Nets will hit the trading block if things start slowly. None see the Nets finishing any better than third in the Atlantic.
