This NBA trade deadline passed with no significant deals. It’s a bit embarassing realistically. There are no more than five teams that have a legitimate chance at winning the title this year and a dozen others who may have a realistic shot at making the conference finals. (Mainly because the Eastern Conference is a bad joke.) Why are these guys (and yes, they’re all men still) so passive? They continue paying lots of money to these twenty year olds but refuse to actually make strong moves even if there might be great reward at the end of the rainbow. Ah, poor passive people.
