What trades do you guys think have turned out to be the most one sided in NBA History?

For example: Kobe Bryant for Vlade Divac (Vlade has been great for Sacramento, but he wasn't too good for Charlotte, while Kobe has turned out to be a superstar for the Lakers)

Vince Carter for Antawn Jamison. It's probably to early to tell if it is completely one-sided. But Vince has so far had the best career, and has turned a team around. Jamison did have a great year 2 years ago, but this season he had a..."bad" year.

No actually the Raptors wanted Vince all along, the Warriors wanted Jamison all along, and the Mavs wanted Dirk all along. It's a long story, something like this:

Don Nelson was constantly making calls to the Raptors and Golden State trying to find out who the Warriors wanted. Well GS got tired and basically said to Toronto, "Listen, just to shut Nellie up, we'll draft you Vince, you draft us Antawn, and we'll throw in $3 million for the trouble". This was all I remember though, so it's not fully accurate.

But boy, Nellie sure loves to mess with teams on draft day!

the Kobe and Francis trades should be disregarded for two reasons.

1.The teams that got screwed are my fav teams

2.The main reason is the Grizz and Hornets did not draft the two for their own sake, they drafted them for trading.

No, the Grizz wanted Frnacis, but he was whining and moaning that he didn't want to play in Canada. They didn't draft him for trading purposes. And look who they got for him, it was a bust.

I could be wrong,but im pretty sure that Dickerson is who they got in return.

Charles Barkley for Hornacek, Tim Perry and Andrew Lang.
Van Exel and Lafrentz and Abdul-Wahad for Juwan Howard and Donell Harvey

This has nothing to do with it but drafting Shawn Bradley is one of the worst things the sixers have done

That was totally one-sided. The Nets go to the Finals after winning 26 games, and the Suns go from a 50+ win team to the lottery. I think it's safe to say that Stephon Marbury is a cancer.
