Optimism Rising? And I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for An NBA Comeback!

Don't look now, but the momentum is turning once again. In case you've lost track, first everyone was pessimistic. And then optimistic. And then pessimistic. And now optimistic again!

Personally, I will believe it when I see it. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

That said, there is wave of good feelings spreading throughout NBA followers. The NBA and NBPA's press conference was uncharacteristically light-hearted. David Stern and Billy Hunter trading laughs in the back of the room? What's next, cats and dogs living together?

After the jump, check out which former Bobcats want back in the NBA!

 

Supply meet demand! Or not.

Larry Hughes wants to return to the NBA!

Having a role on a team, a contending team, is what I'm looking for.

I bet all the contenders are chomping at the bit for the guy who shot 32.7% from the field in his last NBA stint!

Moving on, Allen Iverson also says he wants to play in the NBA again, too! It's a 1999-2000 Philadelphia 76ers backcourt reunion!

But it couldn't be complete without a coach, right?

Have no fear, Larry Brown says he wants to be back coaching in the NBA again! THE CIRCLE IS COMPLETE!

Boy, I expect a huge bumrush from NBA teams to grab any one of these guys!
