Hey all, was feeling nostalgic today and thought I'd share some old images of TradeNBA back from 2018-2019 when it was launched. TradeNBA launched originally on June 9, 2018 through an announcement post on reddit. You can still find that post here.
Since then it has been awesome growing the site with you all and getting to see what you guys have made of it. If anyone has any memories of this or the past 1.0, 2.0 version before the rename to Fanspo, feel free to share!

Bonus: Oldest post currently on Fanspo
The oldest post currently on Fanspo is this one: https://fanspo.com/nba/trades/nHeo7mHLV from around 3 years ago on December 15, 2019.
It's a little tricky to know the first post, since when TradeNBA started you didn't have to login to post a trade, so it was just anonymous without a title or description. Later on I added the ability to login and create a profile, so that people can add descriptions to their trades.
Shoutout to @Why for inspiring me to write this post today reflecting on the history of the site!
