Good news, another team has completely mortgaged their future...

As you know, the Knicks have been universally mocked for trading away many first-round draft picks. Well, now we're not the only ones. To get Lebron and Bosh, the Heat traded 4 (four!!) first round draft picks for guys that were going to sign outright anyway.

Here's the link on ESPN

The breakdown is this:

Raptors get: their own 1st rounder in 2011, the Heat's first rounder in 2011, 14.5 million trade exception

Cavs get: the Heat's first rounders in 2013 and 2015, the option to swap firsts in 2012, two unspecified second rounders, 14.5 million trade exception

 

Will the Knicks still be the ones mocked for their draft transgressions? Will the Heat live to regret these deals? Are Oreo Cakesters the greatest snack ever conceived by man? I want to know where P&T stands on this.
