NBA 2015 Trade Deadline Recap

The Day All Hell Broke Loose in the NBA

Prior to last Thursday’s trade deadline, most NBA pundits, reporters, talking heads and the ever-popular “sources close to __________ say…”, believed that this would be one of the sleepiest days in recent league history. They were as wrong as Mitt Romney’s final 2012 Election Day polls as this report from espn.com’s  grantland shows. Almost 40 players changed teams, Don Patrick Rileyeone recalibrated the Heat and reshaped the race for the Eastern Conference title, the Blazers picked up a great back-up guard, the Pistons obtained Reggie Jackson from OKC as a possible replacement for rehabbing point guard Brandon Jennings, OKC found someone to take Kendrick “Mr. Smiles” Perkins while restocking their bench, Andre Miller and Aaron Affalo continued adding to their “Teams I’ve Played For” jersey collections, the Knicks and Lakers did nothing, Kevin “Old Man River” Garnett went back to his old Minnesota Home for whatever reason, the Clippers and Lakers did nothing, and the Philadelphia 76ers continued their mystifying trip to this June’s draft.

All-Star Weekend Recap

It very well may still be LeBron James’ league, but the future just may belong to “Splash Brother” Stephen Curry who won the 3-Point Shooting Contest with a final round that included 13 consecutive made shots in a row.

Russell Westbrook scored 41 points – one short of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star Game record – and won the game’s MVP award with an incredible, court-scorching, eye-popping performance.

Speaking of MVPs, Celebrity All-Star Game legend Kevin Hart won his fourth consecutive award despite being embarrassed by Little League World Series star Mone Davis. During an appearance on the Jim Rome national radio show, Hart said, “That little girl embarrassed me on live television…It’s only going to get worse if I keep going back. I don’t want to see what’s going to happen next.”
