the most missed former trail blazer?

with all the trade speculations amongst the blazers fans, there seems to be a huge fear underlying the discussion of trading away THE guy who ends up going to another team and becoming an all-star. with all the depth and apparent needs that this roster will need it appears as though a trade should and will happen, yet the question of who to trade is one that stirs up a lot of anxiety and uncertainty. 

my question is not which blazer should be traded now, but the former blazer that you miss the most now and whose trade still haunts you to this day... ? 

 

a lot of people bring up jermaine o'neal and that was most certainly painful, but many quality basketball players have worn the red and black only to come back to the rose garden and make us look foolish. not to say that this is at all surprising or unavoidable. 

tentative, safe, overly-stacked rosters can lead to discontent, lack of chemistry, and underdeveloped players. i understand the fears of losing quality, young players like cunningham, bayless, or rudy because it just feels safer to have them riding our bench rather than torching us for the opponents. it's not logical at all, but seems to be a real fear amongst the avid blazers fans.
