No, what we got here are team's that just straight up said screw it and decided to kill your team, my team, and everyone else's team.

Over the past two years, the talk around the NBA has centered around where LeBron James will play in 2010. Finally, that time is near. After July 1, LeBron, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and many other top superstars can be changing zip codes. Although some players such as Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudemire and Paul Pierce have Early Termination Options (ETO) and are likely to remain with their respective teams, I'm including them in this list in case they do opt out, which will only add to the biggest free agent class in the history of sports.
