Here’s my question for Nets President Rod Thorn. Your team is sitting ninth in the Eastern Conference, possibly the worst collection of teams ever in the history of professional basketball. You have two superstar players who could be valuable trading chips to a team that could possibly win a championship and yet, you decide to sit pat and do nothing at the trade deadline. Just what were you thinking?
Your team is never going to win an NBA championship as long as it’s constructed in its present state. Jason Kidd’s best days are well past him, Vince Carter looked as if he played the first half of the season with one foot out of the swamps of New Jersey and you’ve been hit by devastating injuries. You’ve lost your promising young center Nenad Kristic, who liked he was going to have a breakout year, along with your best perimeter defender and second scoring option in Richard Jefferson for a significant portion of the season. Even if they stayed healthy, there was no chance for you to win a championship. So why you, Mr. Thorn, didn’t see the writing on the wall and make a move?
It’s one thing if you traded Kidd and didn’t have someone to replace him. But you already have a ready made point guard looking to lead the Nets to

We basketball fans will have to give up the benefit of the doubt. You did draft Michael Jordan after all and this team can, unbelievably, still make the playoffs. However, you had a chance to remake your team for the better and that window of opportunity has elapsed.
