NBA Trade Central: The Full Breakdown

Ok, it's a lot of shit going on in the league right now, being as though today at 3pm was the trade deadline.

In my attempt to cover all trade info, I'll probably lose my paying job...but nonetheless...HERE WE GO...

The first blockbuster was
The Melo deal that we reported on twice...and had been following since October.

Then, Chicago traded forward James Johnson to Toronto for the 2011 first-round draft pick Toronto acquired from Miami.

After that, or early yesterday afternoon, Sacramento traded Forward Carl Landry to New Orleans for Guard Marcus Thornton and cash considerations.

Then came the shocker. Deron Williams.
We already told you about that though...

Today, some serious exchanges unfolded...

The Los Angeles Clippers traded point guard Baron Davis and their 2011 first-round draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon.

Just before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Boston Celtics agreed to ship center Kendrick Perkins and guard Nate Rob to the OKC Thunder for forward Jeff Green and big man Nenad Kristic, two league sources said.

The deal also gives the Thunder something for Green, who becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Green had rejected a contract extension offer from the Thunder earlier this year.

For the Celtics, they take a big risk that their lone big men -- Shaq, KG and Krstic -- can lead them. But with O'Neal out with an Achilles injury, this is an interesting play for a Celtics team trying to win a championship.

Green is a young talent who can play both the 3 and the 4 positions and could be part of a longer rebuilding strategy. Krstic is an offensive talent down low, but isn't known as a rebounder or a tough defender.

Check back for updates, as more details are revealed.


Toyota Recall!!!

Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 2.17 million vehicles in the United States to address accelerator pedals that could become entrapped in floor mats or jammed in carpeting.

More than half of the vehicles are being added to a massive 2009 recall that fixed gas pedals getting trapped in the floor mat.

Toyota has now recalled more than 14 million vehicles globally over safety problems since 2009. U.S. regulators said earlier this month that electronic flaws were not to blame for reports of sudden, unintended acceleration.

Calvin Klein Goes Digital

The Calvin Klein brand will roll out an amped up project in ck one, March 1, and it is predicted to be the brand's largest, most intricate digital initiative to date. It will be a global, multi-platform campaign that includes online, mobile, print, outdoor and plenty of social media. Sounds dope, and I'm sure you'll notice. The campaign is designed to transform ck one, previously the name of a line of unisex fragrances, into a global lifestyle brand that includes jeans, underwear and fragrances. It also aims to introduce a younger demographic to the ck one brand, which debuted in 1994. A ton has changed since then. The way we, the consumer, communicate with each other and interact with businesses in addition to the way we shop. reports the heart of the initiative will live on, where visitors will be able to explore the brand, shop its products and learn about the more than 30 cast members featured in the campaign. CK designed the website to be highly interactive, promoting consumer feedback and involvement with the project.
The company will invite users to contribute to the campaign by uploading their own videos to the site and and discussing the brand on-site and also off-site using Facebook, Twitter and other popular social networks (such as Ren Ren and Weibo, which are popular in China). The cast also will ask users questions.

The features in full will not be fully available, however, until March 1. A teaser for the initiative debuted yesterday on

Although Team Calvin Klein has used technology creatively for marketing purposes in past ventures, this campaign is designed from a completely different foundation. Users are connected to their networks and each other at every facet of the campaign. I see you shining CK...
