Have you ever made a trade idea that actually happened?

Not a rumored deal that you posted on your team, or NBA forum. Actual out of thin air "hey my team should trade A for B and C. That later happened.

08-20-2010, 12:45 AM
Yes, the Pau Gasol trade.
That was my idea

08-20-2010, 12:46 AM
No, but I wish I can trade reading this thread for the 5 seconds of my life that I lost.

Yep shawn marion for JO and jamario moon (i dont quite remmber if i had banks in my deal though and +/- a draft pick ) I remmber telling everyone we would get both as we needed a replacement for marion at sf and a C so i saw JO and moon as perfect targets. PLus both contracts ended b4 2010 (yes even back then i knew of rileys master plan :D)

A guy on the Bobcats board I frequent predicted Richardson and Dudley for Diaw and Bell before it happened which was pretty impressive. As for me, no.

I work in the Pacers front office so do I still count? :shrug:

Scratching Bird's nuts?

Damn, didn't think I would ever have to bring this up.....

Say hello to Chris Wallace :cool:

In the Lakers forum, this guys named Brian I think, actually made a thread saying Theo Ratliff was going to sign with the Lakers hours before any "insider" reported the story.

08-20-2010, 02:28 AM
Nope, `cause all my trade ideas are on sided :D

08-20-2010, 02:38 AM
No, but I called all the big FA signings this off season with the exception of James and JJ. I thought Joe was going to the Knicks and James was heading to the Nets

Take away Kwame and put Odom instead , the rest of the trde was exactly as i thought it tto be

08-20-2010, 03:11 AM
Haha, I love this thread.

Seriously, the NBA forum is so polluted with ridiculous, no-chance-in Hell trade ideas. I'm glad someone else is recognizing it.

08-20-2010, 08:50 AM
Jermaine O'Neal for TJ Ford, Rasho and filler. I didn't post anything but, "I TOLD YOU SO!" for days

08-20-2010, 08:52 AM
I personally constructed the Garnett trade, down to all 7 players involved.

08-20-2010, 08:53 AM
in all seriousness, I told my friend to offer Miami second round picks for Beasley the second LeBron said, "South Beach"
not much of a reach though

08-20-2010, 09:50 AM
I posted on Facebook a year ago that Lebron was going to Miami to team with Dwayne Wade and everyone laughed at me. I said there's no way the Knicks close the deal (we are not that lucky).

08-20-2010, 10:59 AM
I have called a couple really close but non down exactly to Picks and Players.

08-20-2010, 01:20 PM
The Nate Robinson - Eddie House trade I did all the players except for Marcus Landry (Never heard of him? same)

08-20-2010, 01:26 PM
No, but I wish I can trade reading this thread for the 5 seconds of my life that I lost.

This is a great thread. Out of all the trade ideas thrown out there, none ever happen because they always benifit the team of the original poster. You would think more trade ideas would come true in the NBA with salaries having to match...

08-20-2010, 01:49 PM
I told my friend that the Twolves would draft Mayo but trade him for Love and an asset. It was 100% going to happen in my mind because Kevin Mchale had already said he liked Love. Also, Mchale doesn't know how to go through a draft without Trading his Damn Lottery Picks!
