Jamaal Magloire has made his case to be the Nets' starting center. Right now Jason Collins seems to have the job, but his hold on it may not be as strong as in the past.

The physical 6-foot-11 Magloire totaled 24 points and 18 rebounds in the Nets' final two preseason games. Collins' totals in six preseason games were 13 points and 19 rebounds in 93 minutes.
 
Collins is a better team defender and does the things that get his teammates open.

But Magloire gives the Nets someone they can throw into in the post who can score or draw fouls and get the opposition in the penalty. The Nets haven't had someone like that in the Jason Kidd era, and the confident big man knows it.

"Playing against the Nets for the last seven years, that's a void they've always had," Magloire said.

"Now they have it in me. I can score on anybody. I feel comfortable on either block. And I put the work in. It's just another threat that we have on the team."

Jamaal MagloireToday's practice was long over. Coach Lawrence Frank already did his session with us and even stuck around a little while longer to shoot the breeze as Jamaal Magloire worked on his shooting.

Frank left and I was sitting there with a couple of Nets' employees both named Matt - I won't put their last names because they want me to - and Magloire was still shooting.

Say this for the Nets' new big man - he works hard.

After the Knicks' game the other night he was in the locker room, riding the exercise bike with sweat pouring off his body. I was told one of the coaches was looking for him the other day and couldn't find him. Magloire finally was seen in the sauna - riding the bike.

Sweat poured from Jamaal Magloire's face as he spoke to reporters after Nets practice yesterday in East Rutherford.
The free-agent signee was drenched, the result of another grueling workout as he and the Nets prepare to open the preseason schedule tomorrow at Philadelphia. Magloire capped the session with drills designed to improve his explosiveness around the basket, attaching two bungee cords to his waist as he moved around the hoop.

"He works very, very hard," Lawrence Frank said of Magloire. "He works before and after practice. He's a very committed teammate."
