I don't understand how it messes things up for teams not even involved in the Chris Paul trade. Anyone care to elaborate...?

Seems like trades might become a thing of the past, since this trade was basically the epitome and standard of which all trades should be done. It was completely fair for all teams at first sight.

it doesn't affect anything or anyone other than those who cheer for the team originally from great lakes.

it doesn't...

NO is supported by the rest of the owners... any other team with a private owner can increase their payroll to whatever extent they choose.. but the NO was bailed out by the owners last year, and now the trade would've increased their payroll by 15 mil. that's the only reason it was voided...

the only problem with this is that the team wouldve been a legit team with this trade...plus they only have like 6 players under contract so they would be spending that much money anyway

What I take from it is that CP3 just can't be traded until someone buys the team. Which won't happen before the trade deadline most likely. So...ya.

the thing is that the other teams dont want to spend anything on a team thats not theirs.the bottom line outweighs all else
