ranking the NBA free agents

Below is a complete ranking of the NBA free agents. You really won’t find this anywhere. Enjoy and tell all your friends.

The “you can have a piece of ownership in the team if you sign, we love you so much group”
 1. Chris Bosh – If Lebron James was a center, I would put him at number 1 on the list.
2. Dwayne Wade – If Lebron had a ring, I would put him at number 2 on the list.
3. Lebron James

The “You would be the best free agent on the market if it wasn’t for that insane draft a few years back that brought the 3 once in a year free agents in to this market.”
4. Dirk Nowitzki

The “you will get paid superstar money but you are really just a good complimentary piece who just happens to play center.”
5. David Lee – Ahead of Amare because of durability issues with Amare.
6. Amare Stoudemire
7. Carlos Boozer

After 7, there is a big drop off in talent. The players below really don’t deserve contracts that will eat all of a teams salary cap room but they will get them because teams don’t get salary cap room that often.
8. Josh Howard

What does it say about the market when I have one guy in the last group. This is really a bad market. Here is a group of guys who deserve slightly above the mid-level exception
