As if there was any question, the New Jersey Nets suck. They made it official on Saturday night by losing at home to the New York Knicks. The now 0-13 Nets trailed by nine points at halftime and never really made much of an effort to get back into it.
Rafer Alston was King of Suck on the night. The starting point guard for the Nets had three points on 1-for-7 shooting. The good news is that he didn’t stab anyone. Sean Williams chipped in by missing all five of his shots and committing two turnovers in 16 minutes. The good news is that he didn’t throw a computer monitor.
The 3-9 Knicks aren’t exactly world beaters but they looked the part going up against the putrid Nets. Their entire starting lineup was in double figures. Even the Round Mound of Not Getting Rebounds got in on the mix. Eddy Curry finished with three points in 12 minutes as he played in his second contest of the year.
The next lucky team to play the Nets will be the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. How much will the Nuggets win by? My guess is 25. What’s yours?
