Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak could not get those words out of his mouth soon enough when he landed Pau Gasol from Memphis two years ago. Celtics boss Danny Ainge could not say those words enough when he was completely revamping his franchise three years ago when trading for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

Miami President Pat Riley shook the balance of the league when he got a 32-year-old Shaquille O'Neal from Los Angeles five years ago, and Detroit's Joe Dumars beat the trade deadline in 2004 when he brought in Rasheed Wallace.
