* This whole Dwight Howard situation, it ain’t over. When the Magic lose in the first or second round of the playoffs this year and get exposed once again, the charade will continue. But according to Dwight, he’s “too loyal”, so we shouldn’t have a problem then, should we?
* With Howard staying in Orlando (for now), New Jersey panics and likely gives up their 2012 lottery pick for Gerald-freakin-Wallace? Bad move.
* Winners and losers of the trade deadline.
* Andrew Bogut making a positive impression in the Bay Area.
* Trading away the newly re-signed Nene was a shrewd move by the Denver front office.
* The Portland Trail Blazers have wisely blown it up. Teams such as Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Phoenix and Utah should take note.
