Because these games were both technically Nets home games - which seems strange, but is the price you pay for years of terrible attendance - the Nets brought all the entertainment. This meant the Nets dancers were here, this meant Nets announcer Gary Sussman was here, and this meant Marv Albert was here, bringing his new lighter hairpiece to a different continent. [Iron Eagle didn't make the trip.] The only people who weren't here were those recently traded for Deron Williams, namely Devin Harris and Derrick Favors. This probably suits both of them - Favors wouldn't have to spend a week having his name spelled with a U, and Harris wouldn't have to have a rematch versus Stuart Tanner.
So saturated can this market be, however, that anyone can benefit. And even non-competitive teams have done so this summer. The Wizards may have facilitated their playoff push with the overly maligned Al Harrington, who if he can have a clean run of health, surely won’t have lost his ability to score. The Mavericks might have done it twice – in addition to the redeemable Blair, they also returned Devin Harris, whose star may have long burned out but who nevertheless will be one of the better backup point guards in the league. And the Lakers might have done it more than twice – Nick Young, Jordan Farmar, and even Shawne Williams have higher talent levels than their price tags indicate.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
