Lake"Horror"show continues

The Lakers hold the second worst record in the league with one of the highest payrolls, and now look destined to make huge moves at this year's deadline and officially turn the page on title aspirations in Kobe's twilight years.

Magic stay contending

After missing the playoffs last season, offseason inclusions Lance Stephenson & Patrick Beverley seem to be paying dividends, with the Magic now sitting comfortably in the top 4 alongside division and state rival Miami.

76ers suffer fall from grace

Unlike steady contenders in the Heat and Bulls, the 76ers seem to have taken a step back despite the signing of Derrick Favors, sitting at 10-20 through the first two months of the season. After back-to-back top 3 finishes in the East, another underperforming month could erase any chances of even making the playoffs in the City of Brotherly Love.

West wide open

With only 4 games seperating 6th to 15th, the Western Conference is wide open heading into the All-Star break, leaving teams such as the Lakers indecisive on whether to shoot for the playoffs or sell out of the Championship race.

LeBron back to MVP form

After a dominant era that has seen the Thunder take the last three MVP awards, LeBron James has put himself in the driver's seat to take back his crown as the King of the NBA and the MVP trophy halfway through the season, leading the league in scoring while carrying the Knicks to an East-best record of 33-14.

First major injuries hit Warriors, Timberwolves

After a fairly healthy first few months of the season, Anthony Bennett and Caron Butler are the first to fall victim for extended stints on the sidelines, in particular Butler who will be sorely missed from the Wolves starting lineup.

Heat lock in Irving, Aldridge to stay in Portland


ImageImage

Miami Heat fans can sleep easy, with franchise PG and former #1 pick Kyrie Irving staying put for at least another 3 years, while LaMarcus Aldridge will continue to call the Rose Garden home with fellow stars Damian Lillard and Monta Ellis, riding the momentum that sees them as a true contender in the West.

Portland Trail Blazers re-sign LaMarcus Aldridge 3yr/$53.29m
Miami Heat re-sign Kyrie Irving 3yr/$48.34m
Memphis Grizzlies re-sign Mike Conley 3yr/$35.77m

Grizzlies ship Gay to Mavericks in 8-player trade

ImageImageImageImage

In a last-chance for glory under Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavericks have traded away future draft stock for Rudy Gay, as the Grizzlies collect the spoils of their bargain pick of Kawhi Leonard. Long rumoured to be on the trade table due to the rise of Leonard, Gay joins a Mavericks team hitching their wagon to postseason success. The Grizzlies also gave up one of their promising swingmen in Tim Hardaway Jr. for instant improvement in Gerald Henderson, but their true jewel in the crown is the 2016 first rounder of the Mavs, which could be a valuable selection if the Mavericks can't gel together. Memphis have also boosted their backup PG stocks with Raymond Felton, while also snagging Ersan Ilyasova to join Marc Gasol on the block and provide an outside threat.

Brooklyn continue radical shift as Lakers, Clippers reshuffle
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The Brooklyn Nets have radically increased their average age in the deadline, taking on aging Pau Gasol, Chris Kaman, Chauncey Billups and Jason Terry as they continue their rebuild. The Clippers see an upgrade at the Center position with the addition of Tyson Chandler, on the move for the second straight year, while the Lakers receive a younger and less expensive PF in Patrick Patterson. On top of their moves with Brooklyn, the Lakers also traded high-value import Bojan Bogdanovic to the Pacers, snagging promising big man Nikola Vucevic with the plan of building a new, fresh lineup during Kobe's twilight years.

J-Smoove, Crawford off to Houston, Hawks put stock in Payton
ImageImageImageImage

The Atlanta Hawks have bid adeu to two major pieces of their 2011 Finals campaign, sending both Josh Smith and Jamal Crawford to the Rockets for Elfrid Payton, sharpshooter Chase Budinger & stretch forward Jerami Grant. Payton will step into the starting role in Atlanta after a tenuous start to his career playing backup to Eric Bledsoe, while the Rockets look to bolster their roster around their current injuries to Luis Scola and Amare Stoudemire, adding the diversity of Josh Smith.

Golden State makes moves; send Gordon to Utah, Wolters to Washington for Gibson, Young
ImageImageImageImage

In another change to the Warriors lineup of their 2012 NBA Championship win, Stephen Curry's splash brother Eric Gordon has been sent to Utah for Taj Gibson, filling the gaping hole down low with DeMarcus Cousins. The Warriors also traded potential star PG Nate Wolters to the Wizards to bring in a perimeter threat Nick Young, as the Warriors look to focus further on short-term improvement in the prime of their stars.

Potential ROY out for 6-8 weeks

It's been an impressive season from the Suns, knocking on the door of the postseason. However with Jabari Parker's torn MCL, the Suns' playoff dreams may be shattered.

Floridians close gap to Knicks

The New York Knicks have comfortably sat on top of the East since the first day of the season, however the Miami Heat look likely to mimic their strong run home from last year, taking out the Knicks late in February to close the gap to a single game. Aside from the Heat, the surprising Magic still only sit one game behind their state rival, continuing their dream return to contender status.

Rockets, Warriors look for boost from deadline deals

With the bottom half of the West playoff picture still up for grabs, the Houston Rockets & Golden State Warriors are looking to their newest recruits to chase down their conference challengers to secure a playoff spot.
