NBA Power Rankings: 140-Character Offseason Edition

1 of 31

    With each NBA offseason comes trades, signs, sign-and-trades, trades-and-signs, you name it. But as the month of July draws to a close, most of the NBA teams have made their final roster adjustments before the new season. 

    Now that most of the chips have fallen in order, let's see what each team has to say about the offseason in 140 characters or less.

30. Charlotte Bobcats

2 of 31

    @Bobcats: So what we can't dunk? So what we blow leads? We living young and wild and way under the cap space! #backonbottom

29. Detroit Postons

3 of 31

    @detroitpistons: Cue the 8-mile music. We are climbing back out of the gutter! Give Andre Drummond a few years, and we will have the best frontcourt, hands down. #fastforwardplease

28. Toronto Raptors

4 of 31

    @Raptos: How come we can't get our stars to actually win something? @KingJames actually made the finals before fleeing to #southbeach. Hurry up Ross, we need someone who can actually win up here!

27. Houston Rockets

5 of 31

    @HoustonRockets: Uh Oh... I think we put the decimal point in the wrong spot on @JLin7's offer sheet. No wonder the @Knicks didn't match. #Whoops #DownWithTheSalaryCap 

26. New Orleans Hornets

6 of 31

    @Hornets: Hey @AntDavis23 you can play center, right? And @AustinRivers25 you can play point guard, right? Alright sweet, we're good to go. #RiseOrBust

25. Sacramento Kings

7 of 31

    @SacramentoKings: Welcome @Trobinson0! Your first order of business is to tell @TyrekeEvans to step his game up or else @Thirty2zero is going to take away his minutes. #RealTalk

24. Phoenix Suns

8 of 31

    @phoenixsuns: What was our plan again? To hold onto @SteveNash for two rebuilding years only to sell him for a few draft picks? To give away @Goran_Dragic so we could sign him back one year later for $30 mil? #MinorMiscalculations 

23. Cleveland Cavaliers

9 of 31

    @Cavs: LeBron who? We got @KyrieIrving! We just need the rest of our young prospects (cough, cough @DionWaiters3) to reach their hype, and everything will be kosher. #DownWithTheKing

22. Orlando Magic

10 of 31

    @orlando_magic: No Dwight? No Ryan Anderson? No Problem! Oh Wait, huge problem. #Screwed #MakeUpYourMindLA

21. Portland Trail Blazers

11 of 31

    @pdxtrailblazers: Do we have a new head coach yet? No? What's taking so long?! Let's ask Phil Jackson again. #LAforMVP

20. Milwaukee Bucks

12 of 31

    @Bucks: Hey #NBATeams, we will be the first to let you know if having three aggressive guards instead of a balanced attack is a smart idea.

19. Washington Wizards

13 of 31

    @WashWizards: There ya go @JohnWall! We finally got rid of the goons and gave you enough supporting talent to make a playoff push. #NoMoreExcuses

18. Philadelphia 76ers

14 of 31

    @Sixers: We may have been relatively quiet this offseason, but don't worry, that's only because we're preparing for next year's headlines when we ship @MindofAI9! #StayTuned

17. Minnesota Timberwolves

15 of 31

    @MNTimberwolves: Quick! Somebody get @kevinlove a chiropractor! His back has been hurting from carrying this team! It's OK, Brandon Roy and @rickyrubio9 will take some of the load. #Love4MVP

16. Atlanta Hawks

16 of 31

    @atlanta_hawks: See #NBATeams, it is possible to lose your star player and still remain playoff-caliber. Let the contract duel between @Teague0 and @DevinHarris5 begin! #BringUsToSTL

15. Utah Jazz

17 of 31

    @utahjazz: Who likes big men? We like big men! I dare you to match up against Millsap, Favors, Jefferson AND Kanter. #WeDontMissYouDWill

14. Golden State Warriors

18 of 31

    @Warriors: We may not play the best defense, but at least we can shoot! All we need is for the fans to stop booing us and maybe we can move in the right direction... across the Bay, that is. #PceOracle

13. Chicago Bulls

19 of 31

    @ChicagoBulls: *Still holding our breath since D-Rose went down* ...losing Asik, Watson and Brewer probably didn't help matters. #GoodByeTitleHopes

12. Indiana Pacers

20 of 31

    @indianapacers: We keep making playoff runs as long as our opponents keep getting injured. Still praying @dgranger33 can be a superstar. #WishfulThinking

11. Denver Nuggets

21 of 31

    @denvernuggets: With the luck we get from drafts, expect @EvanFourmizz to make the All-Star team this year. @TyLawson3 @KennethFaried35 future of Denver. Time to reach the second round!

10. Los Angeles Clippers

22 of 31

    @LAClippers: Please don't leave us next year, @CP3! It's really nice not being terrible. #LobCity

9. Dallas Mavericks

23 of 31

    @DallasMavs: Look! We finally got some guys in their 20s! #Contenders 

8. Memphis Grizzlies

24 of 31

    @memgrizz: It's about time we got rid of Mayo! Now it's @rudygay22's time to shine! Oh and @Macbo50 better stay healthy...or else.

7. Brooklyn Nets

25 of 31

    @netsbasketball: Whoops! We forgot to get a bench! Ummm...C.J. Watson will do, right? #YOLO

6. Boston Celtics

26 of 31

    @Celtics: RT @paulpierce34: Hey, has anyone seen Ray? What? He went where?!?!? 

5. New York Knicks

27 of 31

    @nyknicks: RT @carmeloanthony: It's OK New York, I'll pretend I didn't hear you say you wanted that Lin kid instead of me...AND you wanted to pay him $14 mil?! #ridiculous

4. San Antonio Spurs

28 of 31

    @spurs: RT @tonyparker: Yo @timduncan, should we retire or keep stunning the haters? I prefer the second one. 

3. Los Angeles Lakers

29 of 31

    @Lakers: Don't worry #LAFans, @DwightHoward will sign that extension after he gets a ring in his first year with us. #Dynasty 

2. Oklahoma City Thunder

30 of 31

    @okcthunder: Welcome @Perry_Jones1 to the land where draft picks are groomed into NBA phenomenons. #ThunderUp

1. Miami Heat

31 of 31

    @miamiHEAT: I see you 72 wins! Is there such thing as too good? Join the party, Ray and Rashard! #LovinLife
