Players who should not have been traded
 
Think of your team for a sec, not a team you are not a fan of.

In the last 10 years, think of a player you wished your team hadn't trade away.

My pick is Marcus Camby.
I didn't see any logic to trading a defensiv big who had quite a few years left, and looking at him today he is still a very good player.

Who is yours?

The Caron Butler trade...he was Kobe's best friend in LA at the time. I thought he was going to be with the Lakers for a long time.

Elton Brand would have been perfect with the bulls.

Tough one......do you keep the player and suffer through mediocrity or get better in the future without him. With Brand the Bulls were just above garbage but not quite the playoff team we see now.

I can understand the trade reasoning though.

I will expand on my topic......

Name a player on your team who clearly was helping your team win and your team actually went backwards partly because of the deal, Thus making you resent the trade or in essence a player who should not have been traded.

You're a Laker fan, and over the last ten years, the guy you wish hadn't been traded is Caron frigging Butler?

Wow. That takes being a Bryant ******* to a new level.

The spurs have never traded away a good player that i can recall, but they have let players walk for nothing: Stephen Jackson, Raja Bell (tried out for the team but didnt make it), Derrick Anderson, Speedy Claxton etc.

Losing Stephen Jackson is a positive, not a negative.

I never liked the trade of Barkley to the Rockets. Barkley was a star, and they really didn't give up any star players, but Cassell could have been their point for many years, Horry was a decent forward, and Bryant and Brown were solid backup big men. On paper this doesn't look too bad, but I think it screwed up the team chemistry and after Barkely left, the Rockets could have used the guys they gave up.

Now, now, lets be cool on this one. That's his choice of player. Caron would been a nice 2nd option next to Kobe and he is clearly is better than Kwame.

What's your player you wish your team had not traded away???

Oh wow. You missed the point completely, too.

Elton Brand should not have been traded. The Bulls basically have nothing for him now.
