Default Old Nets' foe John Hollinger under national fire, and I'm loving it.

a funny thing that's happened during the mavs' recent win streak is that john hollinger of ESPN has managed to make himself look like a complete rube to NBA fans everywhere. first, because of how his ranking formula has the mavs (4th-best record in the league) rated as the 13th-best team (12th-best as of today).

check out the comments:

second, because of how he came out with an article today trying to defend himself from the national onslaught, and likely made himself look even more ridiculous:
http://dallasbasketballdotcom.yuku.com/topic/39619

so to summarise:

the nets sale and brooklyn project have continued to go well lately, kidd's had a great month, carter's had a great month, courtney lee has been playing well, the nets won some games and are now on pace to avoid the all-time worst record (i think), carter hit that world-record shot a couple days ago, and john hollinger has come off twice as a national laughingstock.

and i think i underestimated courtney lee's stats for february. anybody know how to separate them out?

because as i jog my memory, lee was phenomenal last month... better in any month than he'd ever been for orlando, by far.

somebody break it down, please?

simply amazing to see hollinger sinking deeper and deeper into the quicksand.

yesterday he put out his third article in less than a week defending his power ranking formula, which still has the mavs ranked 13th in the league(!)
