    The Nets could trade for Dwight Howard as soon as Friday, according to Chris Broussard on ESPN.com.</P></DIV>
    <DIV class=impact>Howard is expected to soon tell the Magic that he won't re-sign with them, and he sounds ready to team with Deron Williams as the Nets move to Brooklyn in 2012-13. New Jersey has reportedly offered Brook Lopez and two future first-round picks, and they might send more players while taking back Hedo Turkoglu and his bad contract. This is in the rumor phase right now, and Broussard notes that New Jersey is still pursuing Nene in case they don't land Dwight. </DIV>

    listen i Like Lopez hes decent. Your not going to get a better chance to get a decent big man, dump a contract, and get some picks for the future.

    Why you would want to get nothing back for that is ******ed.

    CP3 to Lakers this year, then knicks this year

    DHow to Nets for life

    Brook + the picks is a pretty good deal, I must say.</P>

    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.
    </p>

    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>


    </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>


    </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

    for the record, yes I believe the Gilbert nonsense was a bit drastic. I feel something would have been done anyway, but he does constantly come across as whiny.

    I am an avid laker hater and I think its bull**** that this trade is held up.

    Its a trade where all 3 teams benefit. If this was somebody like the Kings making a move to dump cap nobody would complain.

    What was bull**** about it? ALL three teams improved their status. Maybe not the Hornets for THIS year, but when they lose Paul next year and get NOTHING for him then we'll see how much bull**** it was to try and dump him this year.

    Scola, Martin, Odom are some damn fine roll players. If they can land a FA next year they will have a very legit team..

    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

    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

    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.

    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.
