17. The T'Wolves Trade Garnett

Dumbass Move By: Kevin McHale and the Minnesota Timberwolves
Date: 7/31/2007
Sometimes even when you seemingly trade an entire squad for one person it still isn't worth it. Then Timberwolves GM Kevin McHale found this out when he traded for the Big Ticket for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, two first-round draft picks, and cash considerations. It was the largest number of players (7) traded for one in league history. The trade paid off instantly for the Celts as they won a championship the following season. As for the Timberwolves...they've failed to win more than 24 games in each of the three seasons following the trade. Based on what they've done in the past, they'll probably trade Kevin Love for the entire Laker bench...actually, no, that's too good a deal for them. Maybe it'll be the Knicks bench. #wishfulthinking
