The Trade Craze

The trade deadline is getting to a close. Teams are trying to trade some of their good players for better ones to get into the playoffs. Some of the famous trades include the acquisition of Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics. The most talked-about trade was Shaquille O'neal going to Phoenix Suns in exchange for the star-player Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. Everybody questioned how efficient Shaq will be with regards to his efficiency in playing the Suns' way. The most recent trade was of the Kidd-to-Dallas trade. Yes, Jason Kidd has returned to Dallas and he's played as a Mavericks against the New Orleans Hornets. And now, the hottest buzz is the three-team trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Seattle Supersonics, & Chicago Bulls. If this trade becomes successful, Ben Wallace will possibly go to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Another trade comes from the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs plan to trade Francisco Elson and Brent Barry [!!] for Kurt Thomas. I understand why Pop chose Elson but Barry? I just don't understand it. Barry has been playing great. If not for his injury, he would've proven to Pop that he's worthy to remain as a Spur. "I wish there had been a local bar that was open," said Barry. And FYI the teams that are showing their interest on Barry are the Phoenix Suns and the Houston Rockets!.. Argh! What can Kurt Thomas do to the Spurs now? Can someone tell me? Oh and by the way, Manu Ginobili rocked the Spurs game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Manu poured in 44pts and Tim Duncan adding 24 pts with 14 rebounds. Spurs won 100-99.
