With the likelihood of Amar'e Stoudemire becoming an ex-Phoenix Sun seeming to grow by the day, I thought I would post a snippet from an NBA post about a month ago. Judging by what we h ave been hearing recently, I have to think that Amar'e to G.S. would rank up there with the top 3 worst Suns trades ever. I did leave Barkley's trade to Houston off the list due to the fact that Charles wanted to leave anyway, and Jerry tried to get as many bodies as possible in return.

Reminds me a lot of the Phoenix Suns 3 worst trades in franchise history.
- 1983 - Dennis Johnson sent to Boston for Rick Robey. Who is Rick Robey you ask? Read about his "Life after the DJ Trade."
- 1995 - Dan Majerle sent to Cleveland for John “Hot Rod” Williams, when they could have had Scottie Pippen the year before. Remember at the '95 All-Star game in Phoenix, they interviewed Pip in the locker room and he mentioned how good he looked in purple.
- 2001 - Jason Kidd sent to New Jersey for Stephon Marbury. J Kidd famously found out about being traded from a Taco Bell employee at the drive thru in Paradise Valley. He then responded by leading the Nets to the Finals two consecutive seasons.
Let me know what you think? Give me some feedback, and if there are any trades I failed to mention that should be, by all means.
