8. The Eddy Curry deal

In October 2005, Isiah made his most disastrous move: acquiring Eddy Curry in a sign-and-trade from Chicago. Curry showed plenty of offensive ability, but his lack of defense and rebounding was alarming, plus he was often injured. To add insult to injury, the Knicks gave up their 2006 first-round draft pick in the deal -- which ended up being the No. 2 overall selection. (Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE/Getty Images)
