With the widely reported release of N.O. Hornets General Manager Jeff Bower does anyone feel this opens the door wider for CP3 to be traded?

And if so, if CP3 gets traded to a team like the Knicks or Nets do you think Lebron will regret 'The Decision' to go to Miami and team up with Wade and Bosh?

No, not at all. Actually you're extremely far from being correct, sir.

Jeff Bower was the one who wanted to trade Chris Paul. If you want to hear even more, it was Byron Scott who convinced Bower to even draft Chris Paul with the 4th pick in the draft that year.

The President of the Hornets and Owner do not want to trade Paul. So no, this doesn't mean he's getting traded.

Haha. I am not from Cleveland, support the Cavs, or in any way care that he went to Miami. Just simply posed the question. For instance a team of CP3, LBJ, and Amare could be formidable. Plus its in New York....

Isn't the owner close to selling the team though?

It's not up to the Hornets. It's Chris Pauls decision. Even if they refuse to trade him, he can opt out after the 2011-12 season and go wherever he wants.

What do you mean its not up to the Hornets? Didn't he already demand for a trade if they don't make the team into a contender?

Releasing Bower doesn't mean anything for CP right away, but in the long run (of course it all depends on who we bring in, I hear Pritchard is the frontrunner) this could be a huge move for the Hornets and keeping CP in New Orleans.

No more horrible contracts for the Hornets. Hopefully this is the start of something.

Oh god yes! And Pritchard did a fine job in Portland, hope the early reports are true and he's the one coming in.

Just becuz he demands a trade doesn't mean they have to honor it. What I'm saying is, in a couple of years, he'll be free to do what he wants to do anyway. It's not like they have him locked up forever. But it's a bad situation anyway, and he's getting tired of it, so it's doubtful that he'll be there too much longer.

Seriously though, Bower was a tool. He never was the sharpest knife in the drawer. People thought he was so great becuz he took our money and bought Ty Chandler and Peja a few years ago, and then the team got good. But think about it, we bought those players for the Hornets and then New Orleans couldn't even afford to keep em. They had one great year and then they were done. They were done before they even got started. But honestly, which team do you think Chris Paul would rather have? The one he has now, or the one that still had Tyson Chandler and Rasual Butler? That's a total no brainer, and if they were still in a place where they could actually make money, they'd still have the GOOD Hornets team together and Byron Scott would still be the coach.

But oh well, we can only work wonders for so many teams. We've got the Thunder now, and they're OUR team. Sorry Hornets, we still love ya, but we're gonna have to handle our business.

I am sooo glad, Bower was a bad GM! He gave the worst contracts... and he tried to trade Paul.
