Is It Safe to Jump Back on the Bandwagon?
The Nets' current 12-game winning streak might just be the most normal thing to happen in what is perhaps the weirdest season in NBA history. To recap: a Conference Champion team celebrates its follow-up season by announcing plans to move the team out of state, observing the manslaughter trial [with assorted sordid details
] of one fan-favorite ex-player and the early passing of another
, firing a highly successful coach [following a win
against the Celtics, which was also the last game for Boston's coach!
] and replacing him with a guy who couldn't even make his high school team and whose only head-coaching experience was for a Catholic Youth Organization team
, then watching said coach win his first 11 games...well, if you can make any sense out of it, you're a better fan than me.
But definitely not a better fan than those fine, fine folks at JoeNetsfan.com, the No Stranger to Frustration boys themselves!
