Atlanta: Will fall back if Johson leaves, but they still have assets and talent.
Milwaukee: Two good players at the important positions (PG, C). Cap room next yer.
Chicago: Possibly becoming a dynastry.
Miami: Possibly becoming a dynasty.
New Jersey: assets and cap space. They could improve quickly.
The Raps ARE NOT winning any time soon without a miracle. BC might as well accumalate as many picks and prospects as possible over the next 2 seasons. And then develop and a talented team that grows together or use those assets to make smart trades for a couple of all-stars.
If we are going into rebuilding mode (self admiting they are fucked) then I have no problem with it as long as it means we are getting rid of the rest of our big contracts.
