When the New Orleans Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday night, the trade instantly leaped to the top of the sports headlines. How this trade shapes the future of the NBA is up for debate. Time will tell.

One trade of the past that ranks in the top 10 actually involved the Hornets sending a superstar to Los Angeles. In 1997 the Hornets traded the rights to their 13th overall draft pick to the Lakers for Vlade Divac. Who did that player turn out to be? None other than Kobe Bryant.
