March 15. The trade deadline for the NBA.
Mark that down on your calendars, basketball fans, because it could very well be the most important day of the NBA season.
Every season, major trades occur on the trade deadline, with the impact strongly felt by the entire league. This year should be no exception.
Last year the notable participants were Deron Williams (indirectly as a result of the Carmelo Anthony trade several days prior to the trade deadline) and Gerald Wallace. This year it could very well be Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol.
I will choose one player from every team and discuss not only the possibility of the player leaving, but also the potential destinations for that player.
In reality, maybe only one of the 30 players mentioned will be traded to a different team. However, that one player may just have the greatest impact of all, and that's the most exciting part about the trade deadline to me.
