Sean Williams sat on the bench at season's end, but on the whole he did better than anyone in the Nets' organization or Net fans had a right to expect. He started 29 games and finished second in the league in blocks per 48 minutes at 4.03. His eight blocks against the Kings on December 18 came within two of the NBA rookie record. In the final rookie rankings, he finishes in the top 20 in most; top 10 in Hollinger's statistical analysis.
