Greatest trade of all time?
ago I was fortunate to follow the Lakers on radio and tv (pre cable days), and was
treated to some of the best centers of all time. How did the Lakers obtain these two great
Per Wikipedia, “. . . General Manager Jack Hannum
decided to radically change the
Sixers by trading for Archie Clark, Darrall Imhoff and Jerry Chambers . . . . This
qualifies as one of the most lopsided NBA trades ever, as the Sixers traded the most
dominant player of his generation for three role players . . . After the trade,
Chamberlain was teamed with future Hall-of-Famers Elgin Baylor and Jerry West,
creating one of the most prolific basketball scoring machines of all time . . . .
Chamberlain and West would win their first and only Lakers title in 1972 . . .
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (formerly known as Lew Alcindor):
Per Wikipedia, “. . . With the addition of Oscar Robertson,
a league-best 66 victories in 1970-71, . . . . the Bucks won the NBA championship, . . .
In 1975, the Bucks traded him and reserve center Walt Wesley to the Los Angeles Lakers
for center Elmore Smith, guard Brian Winters, and rookie "blue chippers" Dave Myers
and Junior Bridgeman. The trade paved the way for a second Abdul-Jabbar dynasty as the
Lakers went on to become one of the most dominant teams of the 1980's, appearing in the
finals eight times and winning five NBA championships . . .
What trade was greater than the two listed above?
Let’s see what the Bible has to tell us . . .
15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to
release a prisoner chosen by the
16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas.
17 So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, "Which one do you want me to
release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?"
18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him.
19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his
wife sent him this message: "Don't
have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a
dream because of him."
20 But the chief priests and the elders
persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to
have Jesus executed.
21 "Which of the two do you want me to
release to you?" asked the governor.
"Barabbas," they answered.
22 "What shall I do, then, with Jesus who
is called Christ?" Pilate asked.
They all answered, "Crucify him!"
23 "Why? What
crime has he committed?" asked Pilate.
But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere,
but that instead an uproar was starting,
he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this
man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!"
25 All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!"
26 Then he released Barabbas
to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over
to be crucified.
27 Then the governor's soldiers took
Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole
company of soldiers around him.
28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him,
29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in
his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!"
30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again.
31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him.
Then they led him away to crucify him.
. . . Jesus offers us a better trade.
