    Jul 13, 2012, 10:09 AM EST

    JaVale McGee

    Athletic big men in the NBA get paid. Actually, the better way to phrase that is NBA big men get over paid. It’s simple supply and demand, there just aren’t many of them. Enter JaVale McGee.

    Dwight Howard

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey is going all-in. He is pushing his chips in and trying to win the bracelet. Or in this case, the ring. To win titles in the NBA you need to have a franchise anchor, a true superstar. Since 1980, one team has won a title without at least one of those…

    Toronto Raptors' Calderon drives to the basket past Sacramento Kings' Thomas during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Think there are teams that could use a point guard who averaged 10.5 points and 8.8 assists per game last season (to 2 turnovers per game), who can shoot the three and assisted on 44 percent of his teammates baskets when he was on the floor last season? Anyone want Jose Calderon? He’s the guy…
