In this edition of ‘Listed’, HoopsVibe The Blog examines five teams who could be hampered by the economic downturn.

New Jersey Nets:

Problems: What happened to Brooklyn? Their move has once again been delayed and the club languishes as a lame duck in Jersey. Owner Bruce Ratner is heavily tied to real estate development and could get exposed in a downturn.

Saving Grace: The Nets are capable of pushing for the playoffs. But their true saviour plays in Cleveland, is two seasons away from unrestricted free agency, and there is little, if no, guarantee he comes.
