I remember that year in 07 everyone wanted to be traded to the stacked Suns including Kobe. I remember Marion was going to be traded to the Timberwolves for Garnett.


Nash
Grant Hill
Amare
KG

Could that team have won it all?

just wondering not sure.. was grant hill on that team I don't remember and was he still hurt.. but I think they would have won with KG. He plays great defensive and they never had a stopper for the tim Duncan's and dirks over the years they had to go up against he could have changed those games.

That's a pretty nice line up too, but I still like him in Boston better. But who knows, they probably could have had a shot.

It would have been a really good team. I think they would have at least won one.

There are too many 'What if' stories. What if Portland drafter KD at #1 etc.

If they played defense (which I doubt ) there's no reason they shouldn't have. In boston its a defense first team. The suns were the opposite

Kg wouldve help them for two years. After that Nash would be 36,kg would be 34,hill wouldve been 37. All would have pretty big contracts. Kg
still has 2-3 years left on his contract left.

Definitely.

Totally. They almost beat The Spurs without KG, and at the time KG was still a top-10 player in the league. They would have had 2-4 year window, depending on health.

You'd have to substitute TMac with KG.

It wouldn't have happened because I think Boston wanted Atlanta's #3 pick, and Atlanta wanted Amare, not Marion.

The correct answer is: WE WILL NEVER KNOW.

Why is this a Discussion? What if Lebron, and D Wade ever be on the same team? What then? That will never happen.... Wait we not in 2007... We are in 2010. Time to get to the present.

I think they would of. Phoenix always seemed to be that 1 impact player away from winning a title. Methinks Garnett could have been that player.

We're on a sports forum. It's just speculation.

If you don't like the speculation, you're not being forced to post. You can simply not click the thread if you do not like "what if" scenarios.

Could you guys imagine how great Nash would have looked with KG and Amare though? I don't know what other pieces would have been dealt with Marion, but the Suns still had Diaw, Barbosa, James Jones, and Raja Bell.

That could have been one heck of a team.

it really depends on which of these two would have happened:

KG's defense rub off on the whole suns team, and everyone including nash and amare becomes above average defenders. (see boston ie. pierce).

Suns' disinterest in playing defense turns KG into an offensive minded player who forgets defense wins championships.

What if Bryant never fell into Bynum's knee and tore it? Would LA have traded for Gasol and continued on to win 2 titles?
