With the Warriors getting Durant this past offseason, how would you rank the greatest offseason's all time for a team?

Note: Not considering draft picks here, simply star players that may have switched teams or been traded


Example:

Warriors in the summer of 2016 get Kevin Durant

LA Lakers in the summer of 2012 get Dwight Howard and Steve Nash

Heat in the summer of 2010 get Lebron James and Chris Bosh

Celtics in the summer of 2007 getting Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen

Heat in the summer of 2004 get Shaquille O'neal

LA Lakers in the summer of 1996 get Shaquille O'neal


Bulls in the summer of 2016 get Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade

In 96 the Lakers also traded for Kobe, drafted Fisher and traded for Horry during the 96 season. Them four 3-peated. Kobe then went on to win 2 more titles.

IMO (unbiased lol) I vote the 96 Lakers.

My bad didn't read the note. Still Lakers cause we got 3 titles with Shaq.

That's the right answer. Signing shaq alone rivals Miami singing James and Durant to GS. Trading for Kobe is what tips the balance.

Right away it was the Celtics who won the ship immediately and went on to another Finals app. and had a 3-2 lead against Heat I think in 12' series and would have most likely went to another one in 09' had KG not had that major injury

Long term it was Shaq who went to 4 Finals in 8 years along with his super sidekick Kobe, along with 2x champ then Horry and sniper/defender Fisher, they went to 4 in 5 year span which is pretty unique, the also reached a couple WCF(swept 2x) prior to reaching Finals

the most impressive overall was Lebron/Bosh/Wade(who was also a free agent), 4 Finals in 4years, 100pct trumps all, especially reaching the Finals each time

Heat trio won for greatest offseason, Riley was on his A+ game with the Lakers real close A- , Celtics get a A or B+ since KG/R Allen and Pierce all were 10-13yr veterans during the time they teamed up, way older than the other teams

For sure this years Knicks. Rose and Noah are about as washed up as it gets and Lee can make 3s sometimes.

By expectations it's between the Miami Superteam collab and this new Hybrid Golden State Superteam. Those teams were/are pencilled in the Finals as favorites immediately.

Signing Shaq was HUGE but nobody outside of Jerry West and Buss thought Kobe was going to end up being as great as he did. Took years to come to fruition.

The Boston fiasco of McHale hooking up his Celtic beer buddy was great but nobody knew Rondo and Perk would ball like they did.

When we signed Malone and GP that was up there too, except they were on the downslope.

Yeah but how much did that really matter in the pre-season? Its not like they didn't just finish having high level All-Star campaigns, them being old didn't stop Vegas from penciling them in for the Finals too. Pretty sure they did that with Steve Nash and Dwight signing so you're really not distinguishing your case vs the rest with that kind of reasoning.

Was nobody excited when Charles Barkely forced a trade to Houston? Or when he convinced Pippen to join he and Hakeem only to wind up feuding all year?
