Shooting guard may have been the toughest choice. There was the legendary Drazen Pertrovic, but his career was tragically cut short.
Otis Birdsong was a key member of the successful teams from the 1980s.
Kerry Kittles was vital to the Nets teams that made the Finals. However, for pure basketball quality, showmanship and entertainment value, it had to be Vince Carter.
The Nets acquired Vince in a steal of a deal from the Raptors and he immediately became a vital player to the Nets. After joining the Nets, Carter averaged 27.5 points per game for the rest of the 2004-5 season.
In his first three seasons with the Nets he played a key role in the Nets making the playoffs. They got to the second round in both 2006 and 2007.
Perhaps the best example of his value to the Nets is the team's record in 2008-9 season compared to their record in 2009-10.
With Carter as the team captain, the Nets won 34 games, Devin Harris made the All-Star team and Brook Lopez was a promising rookie.
Without Vince, the Nets have won 12 games going into their final game of the year and Devin Harris might be on the trading block. Essentially, Vince was worth over 20 wins to the team. That is a great player.
