The Nets need to depend on their young talent instead of the vets so Marcus Williams and Wright has to step it up.
Kidd is older yet he is a walking triple double, still can play good defense, and is the East assist leader?
Carter injury prone? you are thinking of his Toronto days. has he sat out extended games since he came to the Nets?
RJ injury prone? this ankle stuff is starting to catch up to him.. that I will admit.
I agree with the rest of your statements.
but it was the idea that the Nets can still rally with or without a trade as long as they put their minds to the matter and perform 100% night in and night out and simply be consistent
