I know Parish came from GS in a trade and they drafted McHale with a pick aquired from GS. Was this all part of one transaction or two serperate deals? Secondly, what was GS thinking?? :laugh:

Obviously, GS was not thinking, at least, not thinking with a full deck. :D

It was one transaction. Boston traded the pick that became Joe Barry Carroll to GS for the pick that became McHale and Robert Parish.

Many consider this the most one-sided trade in NBA history.

Golden State has still never had a great team since the trade. Boston won three titles.

The second most one-sided trade was Dennis Johnson for Rick Robey (a.k.a. Wick Wobey).

Yep, DJ was the piece of the puzzle the C's needed to beat the Lakers: a big defensive point guard that matched up with Magic...classy dude too.

Robie never did anything outside of Boston.
