The Nets this year have done better than any analyst thought they would be able to. Most season previews had the Nets winning only around fifteen to twenty games.
Guess what... they already have 19 (as of Jan. 15, 2009) and are competing night in and night out.
With rising star Devin Harris and established veteran leader Vince Carter leading the charge, all of the sudden it is not so "out there" to believe that the Nets will make the playoffs.
With Lawrence Frank's new Dribble Drive Offense, these young Nets are looking to make a push for the postseason in the second half.
