Marc Stein writes the Nets aren't the NBA's worst team or even the second worst. No, he ranks the Nets as the THIRD worst, ahead of the Wolves and 76ers! He also "ruminates" about whether adding John Wall to the Nets' mix would give them "a legitimate shot at landing LeBron". John Schuhmann, John Hollinger and Chris Mannix all have them at the bottom, with Schuhmann warning of defensive deficiencies.
