I was certainly disappointed to see that no big names was traded before the trade deadline. i was hoping to see pau gasol be traded to chicago or kidd to lakers... How about you guys,, what do you think of the trade inactivity this year?

Honestly, I was quite surprised there were no "blockbuster" trades. It would have been nice to see Kidd as a Laker or Gasol as a Bull, but since I am a cavs fan I have to say that I really wish Bibby would have been a cav before the deadline. Oh well, its going to be a race in the East. Go Cavs!

I find that i could have better trades. Pau Gasol, Jason Kidd, Vince Carter and Corey Maggete i think the trade inactivity is sux.

I am not disappointed by the trades this year. Especially for Iverson and Webber, they are the super stars in the NBA, I am shocked when I knew that the 76ers give up both of them. By the way, I really want to see Jason Kidd with Lakers' uniform, what do others think?

im also quite dissapointed but im not surprised that the trade rumor "kidd going to LA or Cleveland" did not took place primarily because New Jersey doesn't want to move kidd to another team, Rod Thorn(NJ nets GM) said that they rather trade vince carter rather than jason kidd, NJ nets is stills kidd's team. they try to trade carter but no team is interested because carter is likely to opt out of his contract next season to go to his hometown orlando. it will be exciting to see vince carter team up with dwight howard and grant hill.

Disapointed, yes... but you have to look at the value of these players based on what everyone was asing for in return. The Nets wanted Andrew Bynum for the prospect of Kidd going to the Lakers, and the Lakers (smartly) weren't willing to pay that price. Look, Kidd would have made them a championship contender, but you'd be risking the future for a year or two of contending. I still think that having Kidd would make them the third best team in the Western Conference behind Dallas and Phoenix. The Bulls didn't want to throw Luol Deng into a deal for Gasol. They were offering, according to various sources, Tyrus Thomas & Ben Gordon plus the first-round pick they have from the Knicks (potentially a lottery pick) for Gasol. Again, the price might have been too high... The one name I thought would move for sure was Vince Carter. I didn't see a scenario where the Nets kept both of those guys because of how disappointe they have been this season. Basically, I think that the GM's in the NBA were overvaluing their pieces on both sides. Pau Gasol is a former Rookie of the Year, but he still wasn't worth as much as the Grizzlies were asking for. Ditto for Kidd, who might be on his last legs. In the end, all it means is that most of the teams in the NBA are happy going to war with the teams they have.

pretty disapointing but Toronto did pick up Juan Dixon which i think will propell them to be a real playoff contender

I don't think there was really any big trades because alot of teams have had there correct teams. Iverson was really the only big trade that I know and think was a great trade

I was kind of surprised that no major deals were made before the deadline, which means that teams are more likely to look at the draft to fill their needs in the offseason. I thought that Garnett might be traded as well since there had been rumors for a while. My team already traded Iverson so I did not expect them to do anything.
