It's hard to believe that a little more than a month ago, we were all still obsessing over where Carmelo Anthony would end up.

Would he get his wish and be traded to the New York Knicks? Would the Nuggets make him swallow his pride and accept a trade to the New Jersey Nets? Or would the whole thing fall apart and 'Melo would be faced with a choice to either re-up with Denver or sweat out the new Collective Bargaining Agreement?

We all know how the 'Melo-drama ended, but that deal was just a precursor to what wound up being one of the craziest and most deal-happy deadlines in a while. There were 14 trades in all, involving 48 players, countless draft picks and a whole lot of cash considerations.

Some teams made deals to load up for a playoff run (New York, Oklahoma City and Portland), others to clear cap space (Charlotte and kind of Denver) and still others were just used to facilitate larger deals and pick up talented players in the process (Minnesota and Houston, if you still think Hasheem Thabeet has talent).  

But it's been a month now since all these trades went down, and the teams that made them have played actual basketball games during that time.
