Somehow we all have learned how to live with regrets. We have all managed to accept that one life-altering moment that has defined us. Yet, it is always fun to go back and say “what if”. What if I stayed with that crazy girl from the car wash, or what if I went to an out-of-state college? Or what if I decided to stay that night?
Life is full of crossroads that ultimately define our lives for better or worse. As much as we would all like to believe our instincts are never wrong, they, like man, are not perfect. So as the NBA trade deadline fast approaches, it is easy to forget the deals that never get done.
These are the deals that fall apart because a player’s wife doesn’t like a particular city, or said player has bad allergies and the proposed destination is not allergy friendly.
They are deals that if done would have changed the NBA landscape and prospective cities forever. So this is a list a verified trades that were documented and headed for consummation, but at the last minute someone changed their mind at the altar. That last-second change of heart would be a tiny cog in the machine that is a player’s career.
So get a gander of some of the greatest trades to never happen.
