Can Harris Lead the Nets Back?

When the Nets were introduced at the Nets Open Practice Thursday night, their captain Devin Harris had a quip about each one.  It's evident that Harris is the Nets leader--and as long as he's still around and as long as he's back to his 2009 form, their best hope to push the team to the next level, to get them to bounce back.

"We've got a lot of different weapons on this team," Harris told John Schuhmann. "It's not as Devin-heavy as far as ball control, but with cuts and everything I do away from the ball, it fits right into what I do."

At the open practice, Harris and the team's two other point guards, Terrence Williams and Jordan Farmar, showed how the team's great strength is perimeter quickness and the team's young big men, Brook Lopez and Derrick Favors, showed their potential.
