I'd rather that they had simply had another article about which writers thought who was going where.

At one point I got Dirk going to the Knicks... who came up with that? Really?!

Lee seems a popular pick to go to OKC - I can kinda see that working and really would like to see an Amare-Joe Johnson reunion.

Tried it 5 times and the Nets got Boozer, Lebron, and Lee one time.

AllTimeBest
06-02-2010, 08:42 AM
I have spun it several times just to get an idea of all scenarios. Basically....

-The experts pretty much think that Wade is going back to Miami, and someone big is coming with him (most likely Bosh or Amare)

-If Bosh goes to Miami, they pretty much think that Amare is going back to Phoenix, so it's probably Miami or Phoenix in the experts eyes for Amare.

-I have had Dirk going back to Dallas almost every spin.

-The experts think that the Nets are going to be bigger spenders then the Knicks. With them not getting Wall, I can see that. The experts see the Nets getting two guys like Joe Johnson and Bosh this offseason, or Joe Johnson and Carlos Boozer.

-The Wizards have been slipping in there every now and then, so maybe their is a chance that they get a big man to go with John Wall (either Bosh or David Lee)

-If the Knicks get Lebron, they need to get someone else with him. Probably Bosh.

From the way it's sounding, Bosh could determine alot with this free agency, maybe even more then Lebron. If Bosh goes to Miami, then Wade is back. If Bosh goes to Chicago or the Knicks, then they have a great chance of getting Lebron. If Bosh goes to someone like the Wizards, then Lebron probably returns to Cleveland.

NY Till I Die
06-02-2010, 09:13 AM
My spin:

Lebron - Knicks
Wade - Nets
Bosh - Knicks
Stoudamire - Suns
Nowitzki - Mavs
Johnson - Bulls
Boozer - Jazz
Lee - Heat


Very interesting spin. I could deal with that as a Knick fan

NY Till I Die
06-02-2010, 09:15 AM

Nowitzki - Mavs

Boozer - Heat
Lee - Nets

I think Lebron will go somewhere where there is one of those free agents going as well.

21 spins before Lebron went to Knicks! In that 21 it had Wade going to Knicks 4 times and had Dirk staying with the Mavs every time. Also only time Knicks ever got 2 FA's was Lee and JJ and only happened once.

According to this Heat and Bulls are big winners:(

According to the spins I made, here is the majority that I got.

Everyone was neutral, different ones, but for some reason it showed Lee going to OKC the most, Boozer going to Detroit, Wade to Miami and Dirk to Dallas.

The only teams I see are Cavs, Bulls, Knicks, Raptors, Heat, Mavs, Jazz, Hawks, Nets, OKC, Clippers, Wizards, Suns, & Rockets.

But even then, each player has a select number of teams. Like Bosh is the only that has Rockets. Lebron the only one that has Clippers.

JOSKOMANG4
06-03-2010, 11:20 AM
Based on those 8 players though..

1) S&T Suns & Knicks. Knicks acquire A'Mare Stoudamire from Suns in exchanged for David Lee

2) Bulls trade PG Kirk Hinrich to the Knicks in exchange for C Eddie Curry. Buyout Eddie Curry then Sign C/PF CHris Bosh.

3) Bulls sign SG Dwayne Wade

4) Knicks sign SG Joe Johnson

5) Lebron James signs with NJ Nets

6) Dirk resigns with Mavs

7) Carlos Boozer goes to Orlando during S&T. Jazz acquire C M.Gortat & PF B.Bass in exchanged for Boozer.

Has anyone noticed that this is VERY VERY Miami favored? Miami always gets two and they actually get three a fairly amount of times as well.

I noticed that too... my 3rd spin I got Boozer, Johnson, Wade, and Amare all on the heat, Lee and Bosh switch teams and Dirk/ Lebron staying on their teams. That scenario is highly unlikely but if that were to happen :speechless::speechless::speechless::speechless: then MIA would be rediculously good.

I also noticed that the Wizards, Thunder, Lakers, Clippers and Rockets never got any of these players and the Suns, Cavs, Jazz, and Hawks only would retain their players. so they probably won't have too much of an impact this FA. It seems that the Heat, Bulls, Knicks, and Nets all are going to be the big spenders this offseason with MIA being the front runner. The Wizards, Thunder, Lakers, Clippers and Rockets will probably make some noise, but nothing that special... according to this thing

06-03-2010, 06:13 PM
it actually had a scenario pretty similar to my dream scenario for the summer

Lee went to OKC
Boozer went to NJ
Joe Johnson to the Bulls
Dirk stays in Dallas
Amare joins Wade in Miami
Knicks get LeBron and Bosh


the league would be crazy next season. Real exciting to watch. I can see OKC climbing up to a 4 or 5 seed next season. Knicks would definitely make a leap. Miami would automatically be contenders with Amare and Wade tearing it up, and with the addition of Joe Johnson, and the continued improvement of Rose and Noah, the Bulls also are on the verge of being serious contenders
