    [quote user="bigblue4417"]From Michael Wilbon:



    Unless the appeal filed by the teams
    involved in Thursday's proposed trade (or a lawsuit reportedly being
    considered by Paul) reverses the decision, the league now apparently
    will allow free agency only as long as enough players to its liking are
    willing to sign up to play in Portland, New Orleans, Charlotte, Salt
    Lake City, Milwaukee, etc. You think Stern would have stopped this trade
    had Paul been dealt for essentially the same package to, oh, Indiana?
    Or Memphis? Or Oklahoma City? There isn't a chance in hell.</p>

    But
    what stopping this trade does is prevent New Orleans from getting
    players who can help that small-market franchise not only recover, but
    move on. Odom is one of the most versatile frontcourt players in the
    NBA. Scola averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game last season.
    Martin can get you 20 points a night. Dragic is a suitable backup.
    What's wrong with this deal? Nothing, except the Lakers made it. This
    isn't a heist; it's a deal that's easy to defend if you're looking at it
    from the Hornets' viewpoint. What's more, executives from the Lakers
    and executives from the Hornets made it. Club officials.</p>

    Problem is, there are owners like Cleveland's Dan Gilbert, still whining like a 2-year-old over the departure of LeBron James, who want some sort of guarantee that small-market teams will get their share of free agents.</p>

    We're sure to hear about a conflict of interest, what with the Hornets
    being run by the league and dealing a great player to Los Angeles. So,
    it would be OK for the NBA to trade Paul to a dreadful team, say the
    Timberwolves? The NBA knew there could be the appearance of a conflict
    when it made the decision to run the Hornets. Why should Paul play in
    New Orleans indefinitely? Because management there was incompetent,
    which it was? Because the Knicks -- talk about the pot calling the
    kettle black -- don't like the trade? Since when do owners not involved
    with a trade get to lobby against it? Where in the NBA rules does it say
    other clubs get to whine that the Lakers will be too good again? And
    who stands up to them and says, "Hey you MORONS, it's quite possible the
    Hornets made a good deal here."</p>[/quote]

    haha WIlbon! Thats exactly what I say!
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    just went home for lunch and watched sportscenter. They seem pretty hell bent that a deal may get done today for Howard.

    I like Nene....but, that may be because I think it's awesome when Brazilians go by only 1 name. lol</P>

    Bill Simmons:

    Fact: Of the three teams involved, New Orleans made out the best.
    Repeat: the best. By my calculations, it landed one of the better
    offensive big men in basketball (Luis Scola), one of the better scoring
    2-guards in basketball (Kevin Martin), a playoff-proven forward who can
    play either spot (Lamar Odom), a scoring point guard with upside (Goran
    Dragic), and a 2012 no. 1 pick (via the New York Knicks). Can you do
    better for someone who was leaving in seven months anyway? I hate
    trading superstars, but if you HAVE to trade a superstar? That's pretty
    good.

    LMFAO - from the same article

    Was it the worst moment of David Stern's entire tenure? I never thought
    anything would top an official fixing games, but man Ö how can anything
    be worse than this? I<font size="6">magine this happened in your fantasy league</font>.
    Imagine spending weeks shaping a deal, executing it, then having your
    commissioner waltz in and say, "Nah, I'm vetoing that one." Would that
    ever happen? And now this is happening in a PROFESSIONAL SPORTS LEAGUE?

    <div class="report">


    David Stern released a statement about the
    vetoed Chris Paul trade on Friday, which read in part, "the
    Commissionerís Office ... decided, free from the influence of other NBA
    owners, that the team was better served with Chris in a Hornets
    uniform."</p>
    </div>
    <div class="impact">
    "All decisions are made on the basis of what is
    in the best interests of the Hornets," Stern wrote. There will be no
    petition to overturn the veto because the league office does in fact
    have the authority to make the decision, even if it reeks of the league
    pandering to a certain group of owners. Chris Paul is considering his
    legal options and there is serious concern over how New Orleans can
    trade him after this mess. It's possible that a new owner for the team
    will be announced soon, but right now all bets are off.


    This is suuuuuuuuuuuuuch BULL****. I am still in shock...

    this is a picutre of a young pre-corrupted dezzz..

    Some would say it was the start of the obsession with women - which lead to the hookers - then one fatal slip of the scissors #1 happened for the long island killer. He then got a taste for it
