Teams in Need of a Star

I know most basketball fans want to think about march madness, but this week is one of my favorite weeks in NBA basketball. This is trade deadline week and I am gonna do some evaluation of team needs.

1. The biggest need for any team, is the need of the Orlando Magic to trade Dwight Howard. Howard will obviously never stay in Orlando and they aren’t a team capable of beating Chicago or Miami in a series. If I were the Otis Smith (Magic’s general manager), I would pursue a trade that includes a solid big man and a talented swingman. The Magic must make a trade this week or they will be left with a team similar to the 2010-2011 Cleveland Cavaliers, after “The Decision.”

2. The Denver Nuggets and Indiana Pacers, two of the deepest teams in the NBA have the exact same need. They each need a so called, “superstar.” They both have different reasons for this need though, the Mile High City team needs a star to take that last shot, but the Bird’s team needs a star to get some fans in those many empty seats in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. There are a few available stars that could change both of these teams those stars are Monta Ellis and Josh Smith.

3. There is one team in the NBA that needs a totally new roster, the Charlotte Bobcats. The Cats should be open to any trade, the question is Michael Jordan smart enough to know a good trade from a bad trade. The funny thing is, you can make a playoff team with the players MJ has traded away: Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson, and Tyson Chandler.

All these teams have their problems going into the deadline week, it will be exciting to see who gets their problems solved.

Oh, and forgot to remind those C’s fans out there not to worry about Rondo. Yeah, there are a lot of rumors, but I don’t think Danny Ainge is stupid enough to trade him.

  1. I like what you said at the end about Rondo. When the Big Three are done. He will be their only strong player, they can’t trade him.
