4. New Jersey Nets

Sure it's a lame duck year for the New Jersey Nets, who are scheduled to play their last season in Newark, but there's still plenty to lose. With a spanking new arena awaiting the team in Brooklyn next year, a year lost could cool the appetite to watch a team who, let's face it, hasn't proved themselves on the court.

A lost year could mean the team might lose Deron Williams forever, making it difficult to lure other free agents. The new location is nice, but a year of apathy will immediately dull the impact of the move to the Barclays Center.
