The Absolute Most Important Stories Written Before the NBA Trade Deadline

Shockingly, these not-at-all-pointless-or-inane stories have nothing to do with trades.


The window for NBA trades is quickly closing, with a 3pm Thursday deadline for all deals to be done, and there are an extraordinary amount of big names being thrown around: Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Josh Smith, and J.J. Redick, just to name a few. With all that talent, you’d think the Internet would be jam-packed with trade scenarios and rumors. But you’d think wrong. Here’s what’s really swirling around the web on the eve of the deadline.

Look, we all love Katherine Webb, that’s not up for debate. But a hilarious under-explained photo of her and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wearing a full Darth Vader mask? Maybe hold that juicy exclusive until after the chips fall tomorrow.

KG Unwinds
Finally! A story about Kevin Garnett, who was rumored to be a piece of a trade that would land him with the Clippers. Does this break down how the Celtics would fare without him, and if the Clippers would benefit from his services? No, it’s about how much he loves yoga. Internet, you never fail to amaze me.

When does football start again?
