wowsers... those are some seriously crazy trades...
hindsight is 20/20 of course, but seriously look at a few of those:

4) Suns trade Nash to the Mavericks for Muursepp, Bubba Wells, the draft rights to Garrity and a first round draft pick.

5) Hornets send the rights for Kobe to the Lakers for Vlade Divac.

6) Bucks trade the rights to Tractor Traylor to the Mavericks for the rights to Nowitzki and the rights to Garrity.

8) Hornets send Baron Davis to the Warriors for Speedy Claxton and Dale Davis.

9) Heat trade Caron Butler, Lamar Odom, Brian Grant, and a 1st round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for Shaquille O'Neal.

they are all steals now... i guess at the time they looked decent on paper.

i think the really bad ones are:

1) Grizz trade Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Crittendon, Marc Gasol (!), McKie, and 2 1st round draft picks.

2) Raptors send Carter to the Nets in exchange for Eric Williams, Aaron Williams, Mourning and two first-round draft picks.

moreso because they were terrible right away... everyone knows who got fleeced and who won.
