With all the free agency hype going on, a break from that tension is a good idea, especially if you're from Chicago.

Copy and paste the below teams and name the one player you feel best identifies with that team: (I think it will be fun to see how the ages of members determines the players they feel represent the teams)...

Boston -
New Jersey -
New York -
Philadelphia -
Toronto -
Chicago -
Cleveland -
Detroit -
Indiana -
Milwaukee -
Atlanta -
Charlotte -
Miami -
Orlando -
Washington -
Denver -
Minnesota -
Oklahoma City -
Portland -
Utah -
Golden State -
LA Clippers -
LA Lakers -
Phoenix -
Sacramento -
Dallas -
Houston -

Actually, bow down, we don't want a diversion from the news right now. We want the front page to be all about the news.

This could be a fun game, but please re-post it after the big FA stuff has died down so that we can focus on the big stuff that's happening right now. Not trying to shut your idea down, just to re-channel it to the better time slot, when the forum is slower and stuff like this really helps.

Thanks for understanding.
