As you saw last week with our cult classic posts, SB Nation's basketball sites are all doing weekly posts under the same theme. This week's theme is pretty simple once again: What is the best trade in Rockets history?
I have a few ideas of my own, but like we did last week, we're asking for your help in deciding which trade ranks at the top.
It's may be easier to remember the near-misses of the past few years than the big deals that characterized the 90's, but go back in your memory banks and give me an answer by tomorrow at noon, with the corresponding post to be up shortly thereafter.
And please don't write in the T-Will trade.
