Power rankings are out and although only HoopsWorld calls the Nets the worst team in the NBA, no one else is putting them higher than #25. Marc Stein of ESPN and John Schuhmann of NBA.com both point to the future and not just the Nets' youth movement. Beyond Mikhail Prokhorov, writes Stein, "nothing else in Jersey matters much".
