With the trade deadline looming, does your favorite NBA team have work to do to stay in the hunt for the playoffs?
Though big-name players could be on the move in the coming days, we have a very good sense of what a team is at this point in the season. The juggernauts are going to keep winning, the train wrecks will keep losing and the Los Angeles Lakers will remain dysfunctional.
Is that enough to keep a team like the Lakers on the outside looking in at the postseason picture? And what do we make of the rest of the NBA's middling teams continuing their fight to play on?
Even with the potential for furious activity at the deadline, the future of the 2012-13 NBA season is clearer than you might think.
