1. Anthony Davis/Lakers trade mess:
After a series of trade requests involving most of the Lakers’ line-up were rejected by the Pelicans, Davis looked a fool as he remains in a painfully awkward situation in New Orleans, whilst all the Lakers players who were thrown to the wolves will stay in LA, disgruntled.
2. Markelle Fultz losing his shot:
The 2017 no.1 draft pick began the season in the starting line-up but, after Fultz seemed to lose his confidence along with his ability to shoot entirely, coach Brett Brown eventually brought him off the bench and continually lessened his role until he couldn’t crack the rotation anymore. Fultz found himself eventually packaged to Orlando for biscuits.
3. Carmelo Anthony forgotten:
Signed to a minimum contract in Houston after a sub-par year with OKC, Anthony played just 10 games before being waived and remains without a team. A 10-times all-star forgotten in a flash.
