Nets Ranked #3, #8, #13, #17, #23

Kelly Dwyer is done ranking all the NBA starters by position and the five players he believes will start for the Nets rank anywhere from #3, Brook Lopez at center; to #23, Anthony Morrow at shooting guard.  Dwyer also ranks Devin Harris at  #8 among point guards; Troy Murphy at #13 among power forwards and Travis Outlaw at #17 among small forwards.

Dwyer gives his strongest endorsement to Lopez who he ranks behind Dwight Howard and Andrew Bogut: "He still remains really, truly underrated. He's not a stat hound, he doesn't do anything at the expense of winning and he just piles up the points and rebounds. He averaged 18.8 points and 8.6 rebounds last season with 1.7 blocks and 2.3 assists. 

"I'd really like the Nets to add 30 wins to last season's totals so people would stop looking at this 22-year-old with such a jaundiced eye."
