Top 10 Free Agents With the Biggest Impact

Given the epic battle we just witnessed betwen Cleveland and Golden State for the second straight year in the NBA Finals, few would have said that that matchup was lacking anything.

Of course Golden State wouldn't turn down a player of Durant's caliber, but the move seems primarily geared to get Durant a trophy (what Charles Barkley is calling "cheating" for a title).
