Your complaining caused the Cavs to bring in a bunch of guys for tryouts, leading the hoops world to debate the merits of Kirk Hinrich vs. Mario Chalmers. Really? This is the best the NBA champions can do during Super Bowl week?
If you wanna get us excited about signing someone, you've gotta try a little harder. Here, let us help you. We won't even make a Delonte West joke.

Yes, this clearly would be tampering since Bosh still is under contract with the Heat — at least until March 1, when they're expected to waive him — but FREE CHRIS BOSH!
We're rooting for CB to overcome his health concerns and get back in the Association, and while the Bulls are rumored to be interested, what better scenario than him reuniting with LeBron and winning another ring? We can dream, can't we?
What's there to think about, Steve? Yeah you've got a consultant job with the Warriors, but I'm pretty sure they don't need you. LeBron, on the other hand, needs a playmaker. Yeah you're 42, but Allen Iverson is 41 and he's gonna hoop in Ice Cube's 3-on-3 league. You're in better shape than A.I. You can play 15 minutes a night. Go out on your terms. Go get that ring with the Cavs.

Look, he's younger than Nash and he hasn't stopped hooping since he left the league. In fact, he's become a legend. Dude's averaging 22 points this season at age 39. Yes, it's in China, but think about how many more Chinese fans the Cavs would have following them. Bringing Starbury back to America would be an awesome story. If we learned anything from the theatrical production of "I Am Marbury", it's to never give up.
Who doesn't wanna see Austin get to the league after almost having his hoop dreams dashed? The former Baylor big man was relegated to a ceremonial pick in the 2014 draft after being diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, but has since been cleared to play again and made his pro debut with Serbian team FMP last month. He's 7-foot-1 and just 23. More importantly, he's someone we all can root for. Even more than Lance Stephenson.
