The trade deadline is in just a few minutes, and things are actually pretty lively. Dwight Howard's not going anywhere, but Gerald Wallace is going to be a Net, Ramon Sessions is going to be a laker, Richard Jefferson is going to be a Warrior, everybody who sucks is going to be a Blazer, and Chambling Rafgache is going to be a Soupcat. Pretty crazy, and there's plenty more. SB Nation has a nice stream of deadline updates going if you're trying to keep up.
Meanwhile, aside from yesterday's dramatic turn (perhaps in conjunction with it), the Knicks appear to be going into the deadline quietly for the first time in several years. According to what Marc Berman posted on this increasingly annoying Sulia website, James Dolan even gave a speech about it yesterday:
Knicks owner James Dolan gave his rah-rah speech before Portland game last night in locker room and told them nobody is getting traded at today's deadline. Of course he meant anyone integral. "Mr. Dolan was perfectly clear in his message nobody was going anywhere,'' Stoudemire said. "He wants to give this team a chance to succeed. That’s what we’re going to do.''
Cool. Use this thread for whatever trade deadline comments you may have. (And also to comment on the Knicks trade that will almost certainly transpire in the next few minutes because I jinxed everything with this post).
