Charles Barkley has already picked the Nets as Eastern Conference champs. Gilbert Arenas likes the Nets and his Wizards in the conference finals. Now Jalen Rose adds his voice, picking the Nets and Pistons as the EC's top two. Stephen A. Smith (not a player) goes further. He likes the Nets, period. The New York Times, New York Sun and the latest round of pundits don't agree. Only the Toronto Sun is mystified why the Nets get no respect.
