As you may know, Thursday is the last day NBA teams can make deals to improve their rosters (or their cap space for 2010, I might add). Many questions have been thrown out there, such as 1. Will Amare Stoudemire be traded? or 2. Will Cleveland add a star to compliment LeBron James, Mo Williams, and Zydrunas Ilguaskas?
To start off, I will mention the possibillity of Phoenix making a trade, now that Alvin Gentry has taken over Terry Porter. The Suns are going back to the "run-'n-gun" style of offense we are used to seeing from a Steve Nash ball club.
At this point, it is very possible that the "Big Jabbawocki" is more of a possibilty to get traded away, and no, NOT to the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant said it himself Sunday night that he doesn't want to play with Shaq. So where does that leave Phoenix?
Stephen A. Smith came up with this crazy idea that Phoenix would pound the ball in early to Shaq, then run-and-gun later on when the opposing team is in foul trouble. How stupid is that? The other team would catch on really early and there is no way run-and-gun would work without any shooters on the perimeter. So...I have come up with a trade that would help both teams involved.
Amare Stoudemire, Alando Tucker, Robin Lopez, Goran Dragic, and Leandro Barbosa for Wally Szczerbiak, Eric Snow, Andersen Varejao (all expiring contracts), and 2 1st Rounders in 2010 and 2012.
Next year, sign Jason Kidd, Rasheed Wallace, Ron Artest, and Allen Iverson to small 1-year deals.

"The ORIGINAL Dream Team"
Haha, just kidding. But if you really thought about it, it would be pretty interesting. Maybe you could bring back another big man, specifically Chris Webber.Your thoughts?
