    [quote user="bigblue4417"]

    The NBA backed itself into a corner on this one. Now the Hornets aren't going to be able to trade Paul at all. How can the NBA let him go somewhere else if he can't come to LA. So it would be ok if he got traded to the Blazers. He should not be able to be traded anywhere. Then the Hornets won't get anything for him. This trade was fair for everyone.

    David Stern didn't even give the teams involved a chance to increase the offer or tell them what would need to happen to make it go through. He just straight said no. It's so ****ed. Alot of people are saying the Lakers would be worse with this trade.

    holy ****, and you call me scorn!??!
    this is so delusional? Lakers would be worse?! are you ****in serious Landon? cmon man...
    at minimum, what this does is gives all other teams the chance to make offers. REAL offers. not completely lopsided ones.

    EVERYONE knows that the money saved in this deal was just going to be to make a run at Howard and drop Bynum in on the deal. So nobody would need Odom and Pau....it's such a win for Lakers even if they didnt get Howard....</P>

        And I stand by my comment - Lakers get worse this year if they lose Gasol, Odom 4 CP3. They are doing it to switch **** up and open cap for the future. So suggest its a bull**** move because they free up cap money is stupid. Its good GM'ing. This isn't the original Gasol trade
        [/quote]</P>


        Not a chance dude....not a ****ing chance. CP3 makes Bynum THAT much more valuable, and makes Kobe THAT much bigger of a threat. Lakers have never had a PG...and this takes soooooo much pressure off the 2guard when you have someone like Paul.
        Instant Finals favorites. THAT'S why Lando is mad.
        The lakers dont need a PF/SF like Pau and Odom if they have paul. They can plug in those spots with good options, or ****, even defensive specialists, and be amazing. It's THAT kind of team with a good center, and 2 elite guards.</P>

          So, about that email....

          does that mean we can apply and someone will look into it? There's no cost if we just let them look? I dont get it.</p>


          [/quote]

          honestly I dont get it either. I just asked what the ****in record was lol
          [/quote]</p>


          yea, that's stupid.
          Whatever, I say just do the application online, give them all the names, and contact info of whoever....and see if anything comes from it.</p>[/quote]Where did you see/read what the existing record is? I would think you should be able to cite that record, category or however Guiness maintains that particular record and advise of our thread number. Should be easy enough for them to verify online?[/quote]

          i googled it and a message board came up and some guy knew what it was and they tried to start a thread to break it but only got to like 37,000
          [/quote]37,000? What a rookie!

          Have you found a category for the record on the Guiness site?

          My goal was to destroy my competition so that they would never consider competing against me again....Arnold Schwarzennegger.[/quote]

          na I haven't really done much for this except email them and a quick google search
          [/quote]

          just send in an application for a new record (Forum Thread with Most Replies) or something like that and contact info,email seems to make it look like you were questioning what the current record is and they don't have a record for this yet...so just go to the place were you apply for having a new record...if it's not they'll tell you.
          [/quote]

          lol u can handle that. Im not sending money either

              although I'm in the minority obviously in this debate, it's cool to actually have a conversation about the NBA, lmao....
              It's just unfortunate that the debate is essentially about how much the NBA sucks =P

                  its a push on Bynum. First off, the guy is never healthy. He may be the most overrated player in the NBA. We'll see how much more value it gives him when hes there now that actually centers can play him not Gasol. He won't just be the left over guy now.

                  CHRIS PAUL IS A KNICK NEXT YEAR - NO MATTER WHERE HE GOES.

                  Whose the Lakers starting lineup now? Whose their bench? Not to mention CP3 is a china doll too.

                  Who gives a **** if it helps them?! Thats what a trade is SUPPOSE to do. If the Rockets and Hornets were getting screwed over in the process, i'd agree with you but bottom line EVERY team gets better. This would be horse**** if roles were reversed and the Hornets get Kobe to add wtih CP.

                  Bottom line Kevin Martin is a pretty legit player who averages in the 20s, Scola is a servicable big man, and Odom may of been the MVP of the Lakers. Rockets get Gasol which is a top tier talent and I don't get why everybody is forgetting that. The Hornets are getting something out of the impending doom that will come to their franchise.

                  EVerybody wins. Saying that because the Lakers are doing good things with their tema it shouldn't be allowed is stupid. Its a fair deal bottom line. You can't say its unfair or corrupt. Its completely fair and it will go through at the end of the day

                      so ****ing what man... what sense does that make.

                      So if Howard gets traded and extends with the Nets - you'll think this trade should go through? Thats such a jaded and hater way to look at it. JPizz the hater.

                      You realize Howard is a FREE AGENT next year so if he doesn't extend somewhere HE WILL SIGN WHERE HE WANTS.

                      Either way this guy is going to go where he wants to go - bottom line. ITs amazing your crying about a GM unloading money. Amazing.

                        cuz it's so ****ing corrupt, dude. youre so blinded because 90% of the time, it's your team doing the ripping off....

                        I mean, i KNOW youre upset if you dont get Paul....but, this trade STUNK of bull**** from the moment it was announced. A team owned by the NBA, who is tring to sell the team....and they are A) dumping one of hte best players in the league for NOTHING...to a team who is STEALING him, and MAKING MONEY OFF THE DEAL!!!!
                        And you think for some reason this is normal???</p>


                        And then you post some twitter feed of a guy who called the NJ offer of 2 first rounders and a center for Howard "garbage"? quit drinkin the koolaide bro....</p>[/quote]
                        No Pizz, you are blind. The Pau trade at the time seemed bad but it turns out it was great for both teams. We gave them 3 first round picks and Marc Gasol who is a top 5 big man. The Grizzlies have totally rebounded as a franchise because of that trade.

                        Every NBA head on every website and TV show says the trade was completely fair and if anything the Lakers gave up too much. We traded the 6th man of the year and one of the best PF's in the game.

                        The Hornets were getting Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Gordon Dragic, Lamar Odom plus draft picks. Those are 4 above average players. That team is better than most of the starting lineups in the NBA right now. They would not have found a better deal anywhere.

                        The Nets traded a 19 year old rookie and 2 1st rd picks for D Will. Arguably the best PG in the game. You are complaining about our trade? lol

                        It's not some guy either, It's John Hollinger. He probably knows more about the NBA than anyone. Granted it's his opinion but you get Lopez and 2 picks in return. If those picks bust out you got nothing for him. It's really not that good of a deal but I think the Magic would be dumb not to take it. Unless we offer Pau and Bynum which we may be doing now.

                                Not for nothing but the reality of it is that this whole theory is garbage. This guy is still butt hurt over losing Lebron, which is understandable. But the truth is that if he wasn't such a stubborn *** and would of been open to approaching Lebron in an honest way and open to trading him before the deadline in his last season, his tema would of been in a MUCH better position. Go ask the Nuggets.

                                Lets review the trade: Lakers make a move to dump salary cap - okay. They are getting a guy who has basically said that he WILL NOT resign with the Lakers and is heading to NY next year. Even still, Paul is best player in the deal but I do NOT think that the Lakers get better. Not this year and def not next year. Is it illegal to try and dump big contracts? Its like reverse discrimination.</p>

                                Hornets should be happy - they are getting some legit role players instead of just taking the hit of losing a superstar, like the Cavs did ironically. Houston just got a superstar at center. Hornets aren't happy about losing CP, but its inevitable.</p>

                                I went from liking this guys and feeling sorry for him to thinking hes an *******. "Its not fair, their GM is making good moves."

                                He sounds like me crying about fantasy football. lol And just like me he is wrong. He is bitter about losing Lebron and he is just bitter in general. He is also upset because of the financial savings the Lakers would have and he won't get the revenue sharing from us being over the cap. He sounds like a crybaby *****. **** the Cavs and **** him. Maybe he should have built a better team around Lebron instead of Mo Williams, Varejo, Z and other scrubs.

                                The NBA backed itself into a corner on this one. Now the Hornets aren't going to be able to trade Paul at all. How can the NBA let him go somewhere else if he can't come to LA. So it would be ok if he got traded to the Blazers. He should not be able to be traded anywhere. Then the Hornets won't get anything for him. This trade was fair for everyone.

                                David Stern didn't even give the teams involved a chance to increase the offer or tell them what would need to happen to make it go through. He just straight said no. It's so ****ed. Alot of people are saying the Lakers would be worse with this trade.

                                LMFAO i wasn't going to go there but thats exactly what it reminded me of.

                                I agree the luxory tax has something to do with it as well. But you cna't have it ALL for you. His misconception is that this move puts the Lakers over the top. I got to be honest Lando - I think this is a bad move for this year. Im sure they'll be able to get a top notch FA over the next few years but it won't be Paul.


                                He should of tried a move like this.and maybe he wouldn't have the most pitiful team in the NBA. He was king of bad contracts and no foresight. He tried just throwing it all on Lebron and it backfired. Personally I think he needs to sell the teams. Hes on tilt and jaded.

                                I agree with you Lando, this is horse****. I think this **** backfires and he goes to the Lakers.

                                I do feel bad for Stern, hes in a lose/lose situation. I think this is the beginning of the end for him

                                I just figured I would say it before you did. lol

                                There are not many great FA's coming out any time soon. This was our chance to pounce.

                                Stern was already on thin ice, this just took it over the top.
