Another slow news day in the NBA means that it's time to blow the dust off the Insider mailbag and deal with a series of ranting and raving fans who were just more than a little upset that we placed their team in NBA Loserville on Thursday.


Q: I'm struggling to figure out how veteran teams like the Hawks and Knicks made your "worst" list, but the Bulls didn't? Their only significant offseason signing was Scottie "Crypt Keeper" Pippen. I think that the loss of Jay Williams for the season makes that, at best, a draw. Do you really see Eddy Curry, Tyson Chandler and Jamal Crawford improving THAT much? -- Steven Anderson, New York
