What a Trade is like for the Guys on the Court

As we talk about all of the rumors going down today and tomorrow, how teams can shed cap, and how players can fit into certain systems, sometimes people forget that these are real people, and not just pawns. 

The Association on NBATV has done an unreal job to give us an inside to an NBA season, and it got super real in 2011 when they followed the Celtics. I couldn’t find a smaller cut of the video, but watch the beginning of this episode and see the blank stare of Nate Robinson and the true emotion of Kendrick Perkins after they were traded to OKC just a half a year after losing in Game 7 of the finals. 

It reminds you that while the NBA is a business, it is also very real.
