Another season in the National Basketball Association is reaching its half-way point and already so much has happened. The Boston Celtics are the team to beat after getting left heartbroken in the draft. But trades remain the big story this season. Kobe Bryant remains with the Lakers, who along with former Memphis star Pau Gasol are turning into a force in the West. Shaq and Shawn Marion have switched teams, leaving fans trying to grasp the thought of the Big Fella running the floor with the Suns' fast break offense. And now Jason Kidd may be leaving the Nets for Dallas in the latest blockbuster deal. With the All-Star game fast approaching, we give you a small preview of what's to come and hand out midseason awards to top players and coaches.
