John Hollinger has certainly been busy. He's ranked the NBA's thirty franchises, based on their histories, from the Lakers to the Grizzlies. Down at #21 are the Nets, who he notes would have been a lot lower if he hadn't counted the ABA days with Dr. J. Describing most of the team's history as "infamy", "maddening" or "rough", Hollinger says only Jason Kidd brought the team "some respectability" in recent years.
