NBA Trades

Last night I was watching NBA highlights from games over the past several days. I could not believe how many players had been affected by the recent trades. Carmelo Anthony and Deron Williams were all big news last week, but I had no idea how many other players had also switched teams.

As I was watching highlights I kept doing double takes as I'd notice players wearing foreign uniforms. It was kind of strange like at the first of the season when you see new players together on the same team. Here is a list of just some of the other players that are on different teams since last week.

Nate Robinson
Chauncy Billups
Kendrick Perkins
Devin Harris
Gerlad Wallace
Aaron Brooks
Baron Davis
Anthony Carter
Jamario Moon
Kirk Hinrich
Mo Williams
Shane Battier
Goran Dragic

It's amazing how quick some players can adapt to a new team, coach, city, and environment. I feel bad for some of the NBA players who's careers have consisted of nothing but trades. It would suck to show up to your job and have your boss tell you that you have been traded to another company in a different city for someone else they want more. In my case they'd probably trade me for a copy machine or a jar of jelly beans.

Speaking of being an NBA foster child and bouncing from team to team, Drew Gooden has been in the league for 9 years and has played on 9 different teams!
