    1. Childress signing in Greece (and I totally support players doing this). About F*^%$#* time a player in restricted FA called out some of these teams, especially the Hawks.

    2. Posey at age 31 signing for a 4-year contract at his option

    3. Elton Brand to the 76er's. I honestly thought he would stay there once they tied up Baron Davis. (I can't blame him either)

    4. Camby to the Clips for a right to switch of second rounders. I figured they would trade him for another expiring contract with a sign and traded JR. Maybe for Marion?

    5. Gerald Greene signiningfor the minimum with the Mavs. Really? We get Bass last season and now Greene after we traded all our draft picks away? WTF. Other teams had a chance to bury them completely and now both guys get to play and learn the game from Kidd, Dirk, and Terry. I would have signed Greene out of spite.

    Still more summer to go however.

    Clips getting Camby because they get a defensive player without an exchange just a second rounder. You know that Denver is not used to draft a player.

    The trade of OJ Mayo is not that big because the wolves really need a big man of Love to pair with Jefferson. The wolves lack of big man last year. So they benefit it.

    The other 2 is not a big surprise getting Williams is just a bonus for warriors. While re-signing Arenas is just what the wizards really going. Without Arenas they(Wizards) will not be a contender in East.

    You human beings saying the Angels had the spectacular off-season are delusional. Pujols is superb and all, in spite of the undeniable fact that he will in basic terms worsen each and each 365 days from now till ultimately the top. anticipate that. Wilson is actual, in spite of the undeniable fact that he's no longer probably the main elite pitchers interior the sport. i think human beings are thinking too surprisingly of the Angels ... the Rangers are devoid of doubt the team to conquer interior the AL West. ultimate off-season? I say Marlins or Nationals. The Nationals made some sneaky strikes and to boot controlled Gio, on an identical time the Marlins signed some enormous call loose sellers. mutually as i'm now no longer satisfied the Marlins will make the placed up season this 365 days, they are going to be appreciably prolonged if the likes of Reyes and J. Johnson can save healthy. I additionally experience the A's have had the worst off-season. removing some superb pitchers, just to sign an unproven Cuban participant, as sturdy as a washed up considerable Leaguer? Billy Beane is insane.

    The most shocking offseason moves would be Baron Davis going to the Clippers in hopes to make the Clippers a huge threat in the West but it was faulted when Elton Brand moved to the 76ers to put them into contention in the East!

    of the ones you mentioned, i have to say the camby transaction. i thought he had a firm position in denver but i guess they didn't like his contract. he was the only player in denver that is known for his defense. he had the numbers to prove it. i guess they also didn't like his injury problems. he can barely fit in 70 games. clippers get his hefty contract and a perennial defensive player of the year candidate and only give up a second rounder.

    but i still think the brand to the sixers move was more shocking. it was a stupid agent to management disagreement that landed brand in philly. i thought baron davis would make him stay, and brand even agreed to take less money, but his agent messed everything up. even coach dunleavy cried to the media saying he felt betrayed.

    the clippers have been in the middle of some pretty shocking moves this year.

    It's gotta be Camby being traded by the Nuggets...I mean his the league's leading shot blocker and you're just gonna trade him for a second rounder...though there were some cash reconsiderations...

    Camby for the "option of swapping second-round picks in 2010". They got him for free!
