Boki's Success a Lucky Turn for the Nets

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Rod Thorn and Ed Stefanski know that. Between July 2005 and last year, the Nets signed Shareef Abdur-Rahim to a $38 million contract, then reneged; took Marc Jackson as a consolation prize then dumped him; tried and failed to sign Tim Thomas. In the midst of all that, they reluctantly agreed to take on the contract of a draft bust and journeyman who it turns out is playing better than any of the other three...and better than any Net bench player in years.
