- The megastars narrow their search and concentrate on mo' money.
- Teams that raped the roster for cap space only to find there won't be a Bron under the free agency tree start scrambling to fill the roster voids.
- As a result, other teams hoping to retain their own second/third tier stars like Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson throw the max at them to keep from having them leave for max contracts elsewhere.
- The remaining crap free agents make out like Ron Mercer and Larry Hughes.
- The owners cry poverty and overpaid contracts during next year's lockout.
Quite the vicious cycle, ain't it?
