End of Season Grades
 
Grades for the 2008-2009 New Jersey Nets

Mo Ager: N/A
not enough PT

Ryan Anderson: B-
Not a bad rookie year. He showed some signs, especially in the beginning of the season. He should be a decent role player in the future. Needs more PT.

Josh Boone: C
Nothing really to say about Josh, hes doing exactly what he did last year; rebound the misses, make your shots when you are needed, and set good picks. Lost his starting job to Brook in the beginning of the season when he went down.

Vince Carter: A-
Was a great leader, showed great leadership off and on the court. Only down side was he was way to passive this season in taking the back seat to Devin to much. Had a few slumps but still a great overall season from Vince.

Keyon Dooling: B+
GREAT off the bench. He made his shots when needed and had great looks on his passes. Most importantly though is that he filled in for Devin when he went down and played fabulously.

Chris Douglas-Roberts: C+
Overall, he had a sub-par rookie season but thats mainly because of his health. Was in the rotation the first few games but his knee gave out. Showed great signs towards the end of the season. To early to give up on him yet, let him show what he can do.

Devin Harris: B+
Slow start to the season but gradually became the force everyone was afraid of. After his breakout game vs Detriot in the beginning of the season, absolutely no one could stop him. But hes been somewhat injure prone this season. Also got to jump shot happy towards the end. Vince and Devin duo was very dangerous half way through the season but a combination of things made the duo worse as the season progressed.

Trenton Hassell: C-
Started a few games because of his defense and hustle. Worked a few games but ended up a failure. I like him coming off the bench but not starting.

Jarvis Hayes: A-
Believe it or not Hayes was one of our important guys (other than VC and DH). He was our 6th/7th man and most games he made the difference. We should resign him.

Yi Jianlian: D-
Probably the biggest disappointment. Was ok at some parts of the season, he had some good games, but definitely more bad games than good (especially towards the end). He only shot 16% his final 15 or so games!

Brook Lopez: A
Probably the biggest surprise of the season. I dont think any of us predicted that Brook would play this well this early in his career. Candidate for ROY.

Eduardo Najera: D+
We could have used his energy to decide a few games but he was injure prone the whole season.

Bobby Simmons: B
Bobby did his job. He was told to shoot 3's and play defense and thats exactly what he did. He was a decent shooter from long range this season.

Sean Williams: D
He had a lot of chances this season but didnt take advantage of it. He had a good stretch where he took Boone's spot off the bench but other then that and a few law troubles, Sean had a quiet season. I still havent given up on him yet though.

Brook Lopez- A
Rookie of the year runner up imo and the third best player on the New Jersey Nets. You can argue he is already a top ten center, and has produced a lot more than previous center the Nets have had.

Ryan Anderson-C+
This guy brings hustle and a deadly three point shot every game. he is very energetic and already a good role player...I am still clueless as to why L has him in and out of the rotation.

Trenton Hassell-C
Brought D and a pretty smooth J... thats all he really brought though, shoulda been coming off the bench

Vince Carter-A
He was such a good role model, shooter, playmaker and player for the Nets. He was worthy of being a captian doing all he was expected to do.

Devin Harris-A
This allstar PG had a career season and hopefully becomes even better:eek:
He brought an awful lot of scoring including a career high 47 pts along with 7 rebs and 8 dimes against the Suns, 41-11 against the Mavs and a half court miracle against the 76ers, and he was the reason we had W's against teams like the suns and Mavs and the Blazers.

Keyon Dooling- B+
When we got Keyon I did not know he would be our 4th best player...He did his job hitting clutch threes, putting up solid games when Devo was hurt. He was a true sixth man for the Nets.

Jarvis Hayes- B
9 pts per game off the bench is huge. :applause: His shooting and rebounding were needed....he did little things that I noticed. He is the type of player that I think would be key for a team like the Celtics or cavs...or even the lakers...

Bobby Simmons- B-
lost his role to Hassell :lol but hey he actually got better when he was on the bench..he hit threes and will be valuable next year as a huge expirer

Chris Douglas-Roberts- D (end of the season B- )
He was a D in the beggining getting in a fight with a coach and being very passive and scared kind of....he lit it up at the end though...

Yi Jianlian- D
DISSAPOINTMENT... really inconsistent...

Josh Boone- C
solid big off the bench... has confidence issues though and sadly might be gone by the start of next season

Sean Williams-D+
Still a pretty solid shot blocker...needs to stay out of trouble though

Eduardo Najera- F
Forgot we even had him...injury prone or not he contributed nothing.
