    Default So who is the biggest loser?

    So now the big free agents already have a team, they been tanking and selling hope to their fans for years and now some of those teams end up with nothing, out of all those teams who do you think is the big loser or the big losers and why?

    at least the Nets have a complete team, New York I think was the biggest loser seconded by Chicago and of course Cleveland


    edit: I would actually move Cleveland to the number one place

    Why is Chicago a "loser?" They have a great, young, team that was already making waves in the playoffs. Obviously they make a huge leap if they would have added one of the big 3, but they make a pretty solid improvement by adding Boozer. They also retain quite a bit of cap flexibility for the future. Easily a top 4 team in the East.


    Personally, I don't see Miami remaining in such good shape in the future. They might get back to back titles, which is hell of an accomplishment, but IMHO it will crumble apart. They won't be holding hands, singing together for long.

    Chicago will be in good position, when that time comes to step right in and be the big dog on the block.


    Orlando hasn't figured out a game plan, they just seem to be arranging chairs just for the sake of saying they're doing something. And Boston is just getting old, and obviously, putting their eggs back in the Big 3 w/ Rondo basket.

    Here's a thought... would the Cav's consider trying to aquire Gilbert Arenas now for peanuts since I'm sure he is readily available for short contracts? He's no Lebron for sure, but he could fill that #1 scorer void and they could probably be a pretty decent team with the complimentary pieces they already have in place.

    If they want to win now, thats the only forseeable option I see. It would at least make them a mid/low-level playoff team I think, certainly no contender.

    I see Chicago as losers because they got rid of Hinrich+ draft pick for nothing even when they already had cap space to get Boozer, also counting all the moves they made last year moving some good players for expirings.


    Another team we are forgeting about and should be in second place is Toronto, Bosh left them and they did not get anything in return either.

    I say it's the Cavs.

    Though the Nets spent $7mil a year on Outlaw, they still have young talent w/ their 2 1st round picks to go with Harris, Lopez, Twill and Courtney Lee and a new owner with new arena coming after the worst season

    The Cavs have overpaid role players and aren't attractive to other players at all now in any way really. Went from contender to whatever you call what they have left on the roster without Lebron

    It's the Cavs without question.

    The other teams have hope. The Cavs go back to being one of the worst teams in the league.

    Cleveland is obviously the big loser.

    Out of the teams that sold their soul for cap space, it remains to be seen how they use that space. If NY sits and waits for Melo and Parker next year, they're great. However, if they feel like they have to spend now and wildly overpay for crap, that's another story.

    Cavs obviously. After James left, their only "bigtime" guy is Mo Williams. Maybe Byron Scott can turn Mo Williams into a Chris Paul or Jayson Kidd.

    I will say Cleveland doesn't automatically go back to the horrible team they were before. They have an owner now who desperately wants to win, and is willing to spend the money. It'll be tough, but soon enough they'll be at least decent. They're not going to become the Clippers.

    The Nets have an owner who wants to spend, and they actually have the cap room to use it. Where are they now?

    Not next year. They still have 3 former all-stars that they could at least play to .500 with.

    I don't think he is as willing to spend money as people think.

    The Cavs.

    But they won't be as bad as everyone thinks.

    Mo Williams
    Anthony Parker
    Antawn Jamison
    JJ Hickson
    Anderson Varajeo

    That really isn't that bad of a roster.

    I feel horrible for Byron Scott...he along w/ the city of Cleveland is the biggest loser. Kinda reminds me of Elton Brand bouncing from the Clippers when Baron Davis arrived.
