    Pros: One of the greatest offensive point guards of all time. Career 49.1/42.8/90.3 shooter. More than 10 assists per game in all but one season since 2004.

    Cons: Will turn 39 next season and is looking for a three-year contract. Defensively below-average. Wanted to play with Mike D'Antoni, but he ain't in New York no mo.

    Pros: Most popular athlete in the Milky Way Galaxy not named Timothy Tebow. God-fearin' man. Averaged 19.6 points and 8.2 assists this year before getting injured.

    Cons: Has started 25 games in his career. Turnover-prone. Not Steve Nash.

    A Baby Tiger

    Pros: Hyper-athletic. Excruciatingly adorable. Mischievous. Probably weighs a whole bunch, which means he's got size. Looks like a sharer.

    Cons: Not human. No opposable thumbs. Quadriped. So, no cons.
