Most people thought The Decision and the 2010 summer couldn't be surpassed as far as NBA excitement goes.
Those instances hadn't met the 2011 Trade Deadline. It's time for a handshake.
With Thirsty Thursday over, it's safe to say the slew of deals cut in the past few days could feature the most dramatic midseason changes ever. Some players left town in completely expected trades, while others shocked the world in a matter of minutes.
Seriously, could there be a bigger variation in superstar trades than the one between the Deron Williams and Carmelo Anthony deals?
Nevertheless, there are 30 teams and they all were involved in at least one rumor or another. So, it's time to break out the grade book and put the pen to every franchise.
Please note, a C is average. Stop being overachievers, expecting an A. Damn honors kids.
