D'Alessandro: Boone Success a Mirage

Dave D'Alessandro likes Josh Boone... really. But he doesn't think Boone is anywhere near an NBA caliber big man, even after a week where he averaged 15 ppg and 7 rpg. "He has no jumper or post game, he still has weak hands, and he still has no upper body", says Dave who adds "He is years away from being a finished product." Dave concedes the most likely scenario for 2007-08 is the Nets keep the core "after they cannot find a sign-and-trade for Carter that is agreeable to all parties involved".
