There are seemingly at least one to two big trades in the NBA each year. Trades that completely change the face of the league, or at least a conferece. But most of them end up being fairly inconsequential in the “big picture” of the NBA. Teams trade players, players don’t perform as well as they used to, and then everyone forgets that they were even traded in the first place.
However every once in a while there are trades so big, or so impactful, that nobody can forget how big of a deal they are. Whether it’s because it involves a big-time superstar, an entire rosters worth of players, or helps create an NBA superteam, there are some trades that just stick out in NBA fan’s minds than others.
