Name a Great Decision and Bad Decision your team/franchise has made?


This could be signing someone or not signining someone, trading for a player, not going after a player when they could have. A bad play by a player in a critical moment, etc.

Just name something great that happened and then something bad as well.

raptors made a lot of bad decisions...
first round first pick 2006 andrea bargnani?! over rudy gay and brandon roy?!
in the past years we had some bad draft picks except for bosh
letting vince carter go and getting completely nothing for it.

a bad play in a critical moment.. would have to be 2001 sixers vs raptors eastern conference semi finals.. when vince carter missed that shot within 2 seconds left.. it still hurts me to this day.. and i still wonder why would he take a 3

Timberwolves

Good: Drafted KG in 1995

Bad: Pretty much everything else from 1989-2007. If I had to pick one, the Joe Smith fiasco

Bad: Trading Artest for Peja and letting him walk

I dunno, in today's NBA they traded Artest for a 9M expiring contract, which was pretty good for a player widely considered untradeable. And after seeing the results in Sacramento, I can't say the trade helped them at all.

Pacers
Good: Drafting Reggie Miller over hometown favorite Steve Alford.
Bad: The Brawl.

Taking Sam Bowie instead of Hakeem Olajuwan or Michael Jordan was easily the worst decision ever made by the Blazers. The after affect of that brain fart will always be felt.
One very bad trade that is often forgotten was when the Blazers Jermaine O'neal for "Stale" Dale Davis. They gave up a future all-star center/power forward for total crap. O'neal wasn't even allowed decent minutes to develop his skills. Indiana, on the other hand, gave him the time and got their franchise player for over half a decade.

Timberwolves

Good: Trading KG (obviously it would be getting KG, but I wanted the 2nd best)

Bad: Paying Joe Smith under the table, and thus ruining any chance to build a legit contender with KG...

Bad decision: Off the top of my head...Heat signing Smush Parker. :puke:

To Pat's credit, at least he kicked him to the curb early on, although we're paying his salary this year for nothing.

Good decision: Drafting Beasley and trading up for Chalmers. :clap:

I'm fairly certain taking Sam Bowie #1 qualifies as one of the worst decisions by any team, ever. Kwame Brown over Pau Gaol, Jason Richardson, Shane Battier, Joe Johnson, and Richard Jefferson is up there too. How about Michael Olowakandi over Mike Bibby, Antwan Jamison, Vince Carter, Dirk Nowitzki, and Paul Pierce?

I don't know if the JO for DD trade was that bad for Portland. They got exactly what they wanted, a tough, dirty, hard-nosed player who could defend Shaq. They were looking to win right then, right there and couldn't get Jermaine playing time Rasheed Wallace and Sabonis ahead of him. The difference between a third-string player and an all-star is often being in the right situation.

Raptors

Good decision: Drafting Bosh

Bad Decision: Drafting Carter

Definitely agree that drafting Bosh was the best decision. Bosh is turning out to be a great leader.

Good decision: drafting Bosh, hiring Colangelo ... tie.

Bad Decision: allowing Carter to have so much say in team decisions. IMO that's what led to his demise in Toronto. We needed leadership from the GM, not advice from a moping superstar.
