    As we reach the trade deadline, the Shot Tower crew breaks down the real-NBA and fantasy-NBA implications of the trades so far—including the LeVert trade between the Pacers and the Cavaliers; why the Cavaliers won the Harden trade last season (and not the Rockets or the Nets); and the trade between the Clippers and the Trailblazers to get the Blazers under the luxury tax. As an afterthought, we discuss why the Lakers and Jazz are doomed and should apologize to their fan bases.
