Not every NBA pairing works.
Especially this time of year, breakups are inevitable. Teams are looking to offload players with marquee trades, and free agents are trying to escape to more favorable situations. But acknowledging the existence of divorce-worthy situations is the easy part.
Recognizing who needs to split is far tougher.
Each of these eight player-team combinations (players-team, in one case) is no longer tenable. They might not all break up prior to the start of the 2017-18 campaign, but it would be in their best interests to do so. That space would both promote more success from the individuals and free up the teams to travel down the preferred route without any second thoughts.
