Christmas, writes Julian Garcia, is a time for hope. It may be difficult for Nets fans to see that. "It's tough to look at today because you're in this dark tunnel," says Kiki Vandeweghe, "but the future is very bright." Garcia points to the possibilities of a rich new owner, playing in not one but two new arenas, all that cap space and a raft of draft picks. For the Nets, Christmas may have to wait til July.
