Nets lose to Mavs, fall to 0-18 on season

    New Jersey was pounded into NBA infamy Wednesday night, falling 117-101 for its 18th straight loss to start the season.

    "I think what happens is you know it wears on you," interim coach Tom Barrise said. "It's not a two-game losing streak. We play four games a week in this league and it's every day and every other day, and you know you hear it and you start to feel it a little bit."

    The Mavericks made 17 of 19 shots and opened a 27-point lead in a nearly flawless second period, burying the Nets early in former New Jersey captain Jason Kidd's second trip back to his old home.

    The Nets passed the 1988-89 Miami Heat and 1999 Los Angeles Clippers, who both dropped their first 17 games. New Jersey's next chance to end the streak comes Friday at home against Charlotte.

All that's left is the crying.

What's their eventual record? Do they pull off the Anti-Bulls and go 10-72?

If they break the record and have 25 straight losses, the interim coach should pull a Vermeil and hold open tryouts. They couldn't do any worse at that point, right? What is embarrassing to me is how much money these players are earning per loss.

They have been an injury plagued team and Kiki Vanderweghe is their new coach. They will go about 20-62 I think.

Twenty wins is pretty generous I think. We've seen multiple teams in the past 5-10 years win less than 20 games, right? And none of them started this badly.

None of them had a point guard and center either. Once Harris and Lopez are healthy, the Nets will start winning games.

Hawks in some year, Heat 07, Thunder 08 are only teams I remember to finish under 20 wins lately.

My prediction: Certainly less than 20. Probably greater than 10, though. I'll put 'em at around 13 or 14 wins on the season, right around the futility of the Mavericks in the early '90s.

You honestly gonna tell me this team is worse than the 07 Heat.. I'll believe it when I see it. THAT was the worst team I've ever seen in the NBA and they even managed 15 wins.

EDIT - 1-18 after a 97-91 win over the BobJohnsoncats. Saw that coming, honestly.

I always wonder about these things. When is $5 million not enough to show up to work? When is $1 million not enough? Why would you forego more money than most of us make in 10-15 years for an additional year of work?
