It feels like just yesterday that the Brooklyn Nets were being heralded as title contenders. Boy, times can really change.
An avalanche of injuries has buried the Nets underneath a blanket of losses, and rookie coach Jason Kidd is going through growing pains as he learns to navigate the sidelines.
Things are beginning to turn around in Brooklyn after a 5-14 start, but as of Jan. 5, the team was a 1.5 games out of last place in the Atlantic division.
So as the Nets inch closer to the halfway point of the 2013-14 season, it’s time to rank those underachieving guys in black and white. Grading is based on statistics, overall contribution to the team and the respective player’s role with BKN going forward.
Hop aboard and hold tight, because breaking this team down is going to be a bumpy ride.
