People have bashed Kerr for the Shaq trade. He definitely will be bashed when he trades Amare for 30 cents on the dollar. But what people haven't bashed him for is the deal he didn't make. He hasn't been bashed for failing to trade Amare Stoudemire for Kevin Garnett. The Suns may have won the title with Garnett, and they wouldn't have to deal with this soap opera around Amare. Thoughts?

Was Kerr in charge then? I don't think he was.

Took over during the '07 playoffs, he was afraid to pull the trigger on such a big deal so soon.

he didn't take over during the 07 playoffs. He took over during the 2007 offseason.

"On June 2, 2007, Kerr officially announced his departure from his broadcasting position at TNT and his commentating position at Yahoo! to assume duties as the general manager of the Phoenix Suns beginning with the 2007-2008 season. He replaced the much loved Bryan Colangelo."-wikipedia

Kerr didn't decide not to trade for KG. Minny (straight up), Atlanta/Charlotte all turned down Amare trade proposals that woulda sent KG to Phoenix. He did all he could. Close thread.

I read somewhere a couple of weeks ago that the Wolves actually didn't want Amare because of his "poor work ethic". I don't know how credible the story was but it does make some sense. They were definitely trying to make the move but according to what I read it was held up cause they didnt want Amare.

Kevin Garnett would not win Phoenix a championship. He provides leadership that the Suns already have with Nash. Beyond leadership, Garnett is only good for about 16 points and 9-10 rebounds per game.
