NBA Stars Guaranteed to Dominate the 2013 Offseason

With only two teams still in title contention, the majority of NBA franchises have already transitioned into offseason mode and are scouting the stars who are set to be free agents. 

More than any other professional sport, the NBA is dominated by its superstars. Only a handful of players can give a franchise an opportunity to hoist the Larry O' Brien trophy, with a couple of those athletes set to hit the open market at the beginning of July. 

Behind drafting a young superstar, signing a difference-maker in free agency is the quickest way to improve a squad's future outlook. 

Not all the players on this list are set to be free agents, as stars that are recovering from injury or are on shaky ground with their current team will also draw plenty of headlines. 

While the NBA isn't quite on the NFL's level in terms of media hype, the buzz surrounding the Association never comes to a halt. Even though player movement is not as exciting as actual game action, it does set the stage for a new narrative once next season gets underway. 

The questions surrounding the upcoming offseason are plentiful. 

 Will Chris Paul leave the Los Angeles Clippers, thus ending their run as a title contender? 

Will Dwight Howard leave the Los Angeles Lakers after a disappointing season? 

The NBA Finals should be the focus right now, but the offseason that occurs after may be just as exciting.
