1. Miami Heat – If you ignore the fact that their is pretty much no one on their roster the heat have set themselves up to keep Wade and get possibly two max players. 42 million dollars in salary cap space could lure Bosh and reach James but hey who wouldn’t want to live in South Beach?

2. Sacramento Kings – The drafting of Kentucky’s Demarcus Cousins was a big piece needed in the King’s rebuilding efforts literally. Cousins if motivated provides an attitude that fans can be attracted to similar to the impact of Chris Webber in the early 2000’s.

3. Indian Pacers – The refusing to trade Danny Granger to the Nets and drafting of Paul George and sleeper Lance Stephenson. The Pacers look poised to have a young team filled with talent now all they need is a crafty veteran in the back court.


1. Cleveland Cavaliers – The inability to try and even get into the draft was a lack of commitment in my opinion from the team to Lebron. It looks almost as if the Cavs are banking on James having love for his hometown and wanting to stay close to Mom.

2. Portland Trailblazers – Not only do they fire their General Manager the day of the draft they trade for forward Luke Babbitt. Babbitt maybe a talented rookie but he will be joining a team already stacked with Ryan Gomes,Nicolas Batum Dante Cunningham and Rudy Fernandez all play the same position.

3. Washington Wizards – The draft pick of John Wall is a great start but the trading for Kirk Hinrich not so much. Why bring in another shooting point guard when you have one returning from gun charges?
