Big letdown
Diaw, Carter lead list of most disappointing players

2, Vince Carter
Basketball, more than any other professional team sport, allows players in contract years a chance to significantly alter their financial outlook. Usually this isn’t a perk for the team that currently employs the contract-year athlete. But for the New Jersey Nets, who were 22nd in offensive efficiency last season, a revved-up and gunning Vince Carter could do nothing but help the bottom lines for both franchise and player alike. Instead, VC has floated, showing signs of inspired play, but usually preferring to let the game come to him (especially in the fourth quarter, sadly), and let the game stay far, far away from him on defense.

you know why i hate Kelly Dwyer for writing that?

Because he was spot on, i mean totally SPOT ON on the issue, the numbers are there for Vince but he isn’t assertive enough to lead New Jersey when the team needs him, especially down the stretch where we know who needs to takeover, but he just doesn’t show up. Vince Carter IS the most dissapointing player in the NBA this season hands down, and especially when he’s in a contract year. He doesn’t deserve second on the list, Boris Diaw does, Vince deserves first.

On other issues, Eddie House, the team’s best three point shooter, has to say goodbye to the team for the rest of the season, because of a partial tear to his hip and he suffered a mild concussion.
New Jersey Nets trainer Tim Walsh talks with Eddie House after House hit the floor after a foul by Indiana Pacers' David Harrison during second quarter NBA basketball Wednesday night, March 28, 2007 in East Rutherford, N.J. The Nets beat the Pacers 118-94.
The outlook doesn’ look good for the Nets especially during this stretch of the season, but as much as i hate to admit this, Eddie House is a crucial part of the rotation because of the instant offense he brings (as in jacking up shots in a hurry), so i can see his minutes going to Boki or Marcus Williams, Hassan Adamswill get a chance to crack the rotation again (just hope he doesn’t starts), but the problem is, with Eddie House out, he who averages 3 threes attempted per game, will the Nets still continue with it’s perimeter orientated style of play? or will Lawrence Frank change the plays around.
