The NBA’s trade deadline is this Thursday, February 20th at 3pm. The Bobcats have made just about one key trade every season since 2007, including two in 2009, although not every exchange has happened around the trade deadline. Charlotte needs to make the playoffs this season but there’s no sense in being the 7th or 8th seed because that just gets you swept by Miami or Indiana.
Until the NBA changes the way it goes about its free agency and the building now of “Super Teams”, this league will be dominated by the Big 6 markets and the rest will be left playing for a couple of home playoff games and the extra revenue it bring in.
Check out the post-game interviews with Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, and Derek Fisher disappointingly talk about their loss to the Bobcats.
