The Nets have to win one-fourth of their final 12 games, knowing they've only won one-tenth of the first 70. The Nets have to prove they are not, in Bill Parcells famous line, what their record says they are: the worst team ever to wear an NBA uniform. The national media is now on the case. USA Today has a whole package of stories Wednesday on the team's demise, with an analysis of what went wrong, a statistical wrap-up, an interactive poll, even an interview with the best player on the 1972-73 Sixer team that by this point in the season had won their ninth--and last--game.
Filip Bondy, the veteran national basketball writer for the Daily News compares the personnel on the two teams. He thinks the Nets would lose on a last second shot. Fred Carter, who enjoys calling himself the best player on the worst team ever, thinks his Sixers would win easily.
