The Nets' nose dive has cost them in the NBA power rankings. In the weekly rankings, no one has the team ranked higher than 20th, and NBA.com, has them dropping to #22. John Schuhmann of the NBA writes, "you would think something has to change". Marc Stein of ESPN, who has the Nets at #20, asks: "Anyone else think J-Kidd's early season frustration is about to be rekindled?" Marty Burns, also at #20, reports: "When they do score, they don't defend well enough."
