NBA trades

Today is the last day of the trade deadline for the NBA.  Some teams are set while others are looking to improve or scrap their team.  Many teams are unloading long contracts to get ready for the 2010.  That is when some big name players like Lebron, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer and many others will become unrestricted free agents.

The reason for this post is because I think it is funny that Cleveland is doing all it can to build a team around Lebron.  They want a good big man like Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, and Antwan Jameson.  But a report on ESPN said they are going after Shaq.  Why?  He is going to retire by the time James is a free agent.  His best years are long past him.  He has maybe one or two years left in him, and those years are not going to be good years.  Last year he was traded to Phoenix and basically ruined that team.  The once run and gun team had to wait for his fat ass to run down the court and set up.  It wasnt their style, they went from being a really good exciting team to just another NBA team.  

Cleveland if you want Lebron to stay build the team with young good talent that will help him not slow him.  Talent that wont retire when he becomes a free agent.
