Just one look, that's all it tooooook, just one look, that's all it toooook, just one player, that's it all it tooook, just one player, that's all it tooook — okay, that's enough of that.

Never had much in the way of song writing skills, but a familiarity with the big National Basketball Association deals that dramatically contributed to the championship fortunes of league franchises over the past 40 or 50 years — that we have.

So without further adieu, as this years Feb. 17 deadline nears with many wondering upon the star of Denver's Carmelo Anthony—wondering whether the hometown side can reel in a critical piece that propels them to the top of the playoff to come power rankings—we take a look back at ten maneuvers that resurfaced the NBA's landscape going all the way back to Red Auerbach's dramatic 1956 pre draft deal that set the Boston Celtics off on a road to enduring greatness that hasn't stopped winding as of the present day. 

Hope you enjoy it,
