That's what I think, too.NetIncome said:behind only the Spurs. Also says 1] Kidd and Carter deserve all-NBA, Kidd second team, Carter third, and 2] Frank should be coach of the month.

kweli109 said:"The best and worst of March 2005:
Top five teams: 1. San Antonio Spurs; 2. New Jersey Nets; 3. Detroit Pistons; 4. Miami Heat; 5. (tie) Denver Nuggets/Cleveland Cavaliers. "
And the article is titled "March Edicts"
It's pretty simple, they rated the teams for the month of March, hence NJ 2nd.
"The Spurs opened the month with a huge win over Dallas, conquered Phoenix a pair of times, won two of three over their still-rival L.A. Lakers and ultimately sent the message that the NBA title still belongs to them. While not out of the water as far as the top seed in the West is concerned, they're clearly on firmer ground.
The Nets opened the month losing three of four but took a 10-game winning streak into Friday night's visit to Atlanta. Over the past two weeks, they've won in Washington and Detroit, while holding the Blazers, Lakers, Mavs, Wolves, Suns and Grizzlies to fewer than 90 points apiece in home wins.
Miami wound up with March's top overall mark (12-3) but still finishes behind the Pistons in my estimation for two reasons: 1. The Heat loaded up on lighter foes who they struggled to beat on multiple occasions, forced to rely heavily on fourth-quarter rallies; 2. The Pistons humbled the Heat 82-73 at the Palace on March 22. Detroit, incidentally, lost as many games in March (five) as they did from Nov. 2-Jan. 29. "
Notice how it talks about every team with regards to March and March only? The rankings are for March.
Then the article goes on to talk about player of the MONTH, coach of the MONTH, worst game of the MONTH, biggest developments looking forward to NEXT MONTH, best game of the MONTH, heroes of the MONTH, rookie of the MONTH, etc...
That's what I mean, it's for the MONTH of MARCH, not all year.
Now if you go to: http://www.sportsline.com/nba/powerrankings/ you will see the current OVERALL rankings, where the Nets are 6th, not just for the MONTH of MARCH.

Oh why go on.
