Inspired by section214's "23-59" post, I decided to get on the ESPN trade machine and see what I can drum up. The most absurd, yet incredibly sweet deal I could swing consisted of something that may put Sacramento into NBA championship contension. A mega-ultra-super trade involving thirteen people, cash, and four teams. Behold:
Cleveland gets Kenny Thomas and Bobby Jackson. Miami gets John Salmons, Miki Moore, and Beno Udrih. Toronto gets Shelden Williams and Brad Miller. Sacramento gets some guys with contracts that will expire just in time for the 2010 free agent sweepstakes: Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, and some unsigned players PLUS "cash" from Toronto and Cleveland. Simply awesome.
Our starting lineup (assuming everyone is healthy) will go something like:
Don't forget we have Mario Chalmers, Francisco Garcia, Donté Green, Jason Thompson, and Bobby Brown as notable reserves.
What does this trade do? It provides us with RIGHT-NOW personnel to win the next two years, as well as keep all the young guys we love for the future. Hell, we even offloaded enough contracts to possibly re-sign James, Bosh, or Wade.
Who WOULDN'T make this trade (other than all but one of NBA GM's)?
CRAZY. Cowpoke Passion.
*Just in case it didn't show, I know this deal will never happen. This is they type of trade that happens only in NBA Live 20XX, and I know it's not logical to any of the teams involved not named Sacramento. We can all dream though, can't we? Santa, if you're reading this--THIS is want I want for Christmas.
