The trade was risky at the time, but it was absolutely worth it. As, uh, Snotbubbles said, being a team that barely gets in the playoffs is the worst thing to be in the NBA.

Even with Bynum's questionable knees, the trade greatly increased the Sixers' chances of having a real superstar that you can build a franchise around. That's what every team desperately wants. Getting a guy like that is more than half the battle. So, even if it doesn't work out, taking that shot was completely worth guys like Vuc and Harkless, who have little or no chance of being stars, and the mid range draft picks they gave up which will probably become supporting cast players at best.
