Mavericks - They've never won anything, yet they have no where to go but down.

yeah...except thats not the case.

RJ is the best of that group by far of course but he is 27. not that young.

nachbar did ok - 9.9 ppg in 23.4 mpg on 42% shooting.

kristic didnt play at all in the playoffs.

boone - uh, 3 ppg in 10 mpg.

wright - waaaaay better than boone. 3.8 ppg in 13.6 mpg!

m williams - 2.4 ppg in 6.5 mpg. awesome.

yeah, they all definitely "got signifigant playing time in the playoffs and contributed"

Maybe Martin is close to being done but Iverson and Camby definitely have some good years left in them. Maybe not prime years, but they both are still big contributors IMO

1. Without a doubt, Indiana. Besides O'Neal, and Tinsely, who do they have? With all the rumors of JO getting traded, and such, Indiana is definitely gonna become a Lottery team in the next year or two.

2. LA Clippers. Losing Brand is a huge blow to the team. Cassel is getting up there, and I don't see Maggette staying around for much longer.

3. Miami. Okay, they got Smush Parker... But seriously, they loss Payton, Kapono, Posey, Jones, yet Gain Smush, and Hardaway. 'Tione is aging, Williams is injury prone, and Shaq is also aging. So what happens when Shaq retires? Wade will be left in Miami with.....Haslem?

4. New Jersey. They've had Kidd/Carter/Jefferson for the longest, and they've haven't even made it past the Conference Semi's. By now they haven't realised the trio doesn't work? Ship off Jefferson, and some bench warmers for a better deal, then maybe they can at least make the conference finals.

5. Philadelphia. Pretty self Explanatory. They'll have nobody when Igoudala leaves, and just don't see Philly being a place where most people would want to play.

Cleveland, and Detroit are honorable mentions as well.

Personally I think the Nets will be fine.

Krstic will probably be a fringe All-Star level center at some point, RJ has been that at SF. M.Williams has the potential to be a Rod Strickland type player. S. Williams could be a defensive beast, while Boone could be a borderline starter/6th man. Also, they have Carter for 4 more years, who will keep this team in contention most nights... at least as long as Kidd there. If they don't trade Kidd and/or Carter they take 35M of their payroll at then end of their deals....or they trade them for prospects to a team than wants one or the other. And, thanks to a move to a new arena in Brooklyn, the Nets will become a major player in the FA market and may be willing to spend more money to win. Also, while Thorn has not brought a title to NJ, he has brought in Kidd, Carter, two Finals, and 6 straight years of playoffs.


MY FIVE:

Sacramento - Until they get rid of Bibbey and Miller they will not be good. No real young talent either other than Martin.

LAC - If Lvingston is done, like I think he might be, this team doesn't have many prospects. The Clipps also have to remember Donald Steling is their owner and Baylor their GM. Success always has been few and far between for this team for a reason.

Denver - They aren't going to get any better with an old AI, old Camby, washed-up K-Mart as well a tons of money sunk in those 3 as well as Nene, Anthony and the underused Evans.

Indiana - Too many bad contracts in Murphy, Dunleavy, Daniels and Tinsley to get good players on the team.

Detroit - What goes up must come down. A tired core that can only stay on top for so long.
