The Nets better hope that John Hollinger is as off this September as he was last. Back then, he predicted a 27-55 record--and last place in the East. He admits they did better than expected, but without "difference maker" Vince Carter, he's predicting a worse record, 24-58, and again last place. A big reason: they're "completely devoid of quality at the two forward spots". He does think they could "overachieve".
