The Nets beat the Pistons on Friday, earning their second consecutive win, the first time they'd done that all season. It also assured that the worst they can do is tie the worst record in NBA history: They need to win one of their final nine games to avoid the record books entirely. Of course, that wasn't the real news of the Nets' weekend. The real news was Mikhail Prokhorov's interview with 60 Minutes, which did little to stop us from thinking he's going to be our city's 21st century Steinbrenner. In fact, we wrote a whole column about it for the magazine this week. Enjoy kicking these Nets around while you can, Knicks fans. They won't look like this for long.
