Top 10 takeaways from the NBA trade deadline

10) The Knicks' plan to land LeBron James in 2010 is to have him be the only player under contract, then let him find his own teammates off the street

9) NBA nerds have a mad hard-on for Rockets GM Darryl Morey, for reasons that average NBA fans just aren't intelligent enough to know

8) The final piece in the puzzle for the Celtics was a shoot first, second and third no-defense midget guard with a 43% career shooting percentage who wasn't good enough to get minutes on a team that's 15 games under .500

7) The Amar'e Stoudemire Trade Watch is now entering Year Four, with seemingly no end in sight

6) The Sixers like to make particularly pointless and minor deals at the deadline that don't even show up on the NBA ticker, just to irritate the 14 remaining Sixer fans

5) Timothy McVeigh was only slightly more interested in blowing stuff up than the Wizard management was in the aftermath of Gunning Gilbert

4) Houston got a lot better and is sure to advance in the playoffs, now that they've managed to bring in a no-defense shooting guard that's shooting less than 40% from the field

3) The afternoon deadline might be the biggest crock in American sports, since new last-minute deals get announced hours and hours after it has supposedly passed

2) Even the people who own John Salmons in their NBA fantasy team don't give a damn about him going to Milwaukee

1) No trade can be made by two teams for basketball purposes, since in the NBA, the salary cap and luxury tax are more important than winning games
