I put up with the bickering and lockout BS.

Now the NBA is blocking trades...

This is ridiculous.

I won't be attending or watching any NBA games. The league is officially a joke and the small market owners have ruined my favorite sport.

Jesus christ, you people don't understand anything do you? The Hornets are owned by the league, so everyone of the owners (I think, or maybe just the majority) have to agree to the trade. Obviously they didn't.

It wasn't Stern saying "UH OH SUPER TEAM! HE CAN'T GO TO LA LOLOL, PULLING THE PLUG!!!".

That is complete BS

The owners are not GMs.

The GMs are hired to make those decisions. The owners are not qualified to make decisions about basketball talent.

That argument you made is complete BS.

The trade was blocked because they didn't want Paul going to the Lakers

Its complete hypocrisy and ignorance.

Everyone complains about the Gasol/Kwame trade but real NBA guys --- those QUALIFIED to be making such deicisions, understood the value of Marc Gasol.

IF that trade was SOOOOO one sided, how do you think the Lakers would look with Marc Gasol and Bynum in the middle right now?

How easy would it be for them to trade Marc Gasol for CP3 at this point?

GMs are paid to do what they do because they understand basketball players better than the owners.

I agree with throwing stuff at stern... also this will make other teams weary with dealing with the Hornets.. knowing that they have to deal with everyone else... they might just block the trade of an all star... E.g What if the Raptors make a deal for Paul.... would the other teams veto it just because it brings him to the Eastern Conference?

He's going to leave as a FA, and the team will be screwed, completely.

that's not true. The Hornets have a management team in place, tasked with running the team and given authority over it. There is no precedent for all the teams collectively having to vote to approve their front office moves, and not only is it a clear conflict of interest for the owners, all of whom have a stake in competing in the NBA, but it is just simply not in the structure of the NBA's ownership of the Hornets.

The league itself bought the Hornets, that is, the NBA offices assumed the debt structure of the Hornets, and are now seeking to sell it to another sucker owner like a Dan Gilbert laundry billionaire or whatever with $400M burning a hole in his pocket.

The owners are not all collectively part owners of the league office, and are not entitled to vote on the actions of the Hornets GM.

ridiculous

You have got to be kidding me, boycott the NBA lmao hey Lakers fans that is what I am doing before this!! The NBA is a train wreck and it has been before this! Your just hurt because for once your team got hosed!! What about all the other teams that have been hosed by selfish players and ego's?? No Laker fan is crying over that, fact is if you want a great league like the NFL you have to have parity!! You can't have the players run the league and organizations!! Was this unfair probably but somewhere it has to end otherwise just have a 6 team NBA league and 24 farm teams! If your a Lakers fan of course your mad but seriously look at the championships you have won, be happy with it! This has to eventually be equal otherwise why have 30 teams? The best thing about the NFL is you can have a bad team and within two years you can turn it around!! Seriously Laker fan and the other Big market teams don't you for one minute think it is messed up if you have team you want to cheer for and want to win know that they will never have a chance because the system and players won't allow it!! I am boycotting the NBA but not because of this trade but because the mess the players have started and the unfair balance this league has become!! I will not watch until they fix it and I will cheer for Dallas or OKC to beat these wanna be super teams!! Boycott the NBA I love it cause it is broke and needs to be fixed but not the way Lakers fans want!!

Stern actually does seem like he wants to do the right thing, and understands that the marquee teams are the ones that generate revenue and butter his bread, and that this is also a fair deal. He just has to deal with this bizarre new wave of "occupy" or "tea party" owners this year.

Honestly, I think all these weird new hardline owners are just losing dollars right now and can't afford NBA ownership anymore. They are bitter, and just waiting to sell out their teams for a huge profit, but are ruining the league and destroying their own future profits in the meantime.

The NBA has done this to themselves.

They are the ones that made and agreed to the rules of NBA and now they don't want to follow them.

The Lakers already have to jump through hoops and turn away players like Ariza and Shannon brown because of rules. They cant sign free agent because of rules. They can only make trades if they fit within certain rules.

THe lakers thread the needle just to put a worthwhile team on the floor and this is what happens.

This issue will not go away ever.

PLayers want to be In los Angeles and NYC. That is true for all pro sports. PLayers also want to be on winning teams. Thats not going to change either.

What the NBA has done is basically said, you players will play where we allow you to for an amount that we dictate reasonable.

Its absolute madness.

lmao you don't have a clue of how businesses are run, do you? GM is a COO. a Chief Operating Officer. COOs must report to a CEO, or stockholders. all transactions that require more financing always has to be ran by, and approved by those who own the company, in this case, the other 29 owners.

YOu are the illinformed one.

There is a reason that the Nets owners, some Russain software guy, is not qualified to make NBA trade or judge talent.

Because its not what he does.

GMs are hired to make those decisions. Of course Owners have the power to nix deals etc ---- but if thats the case, they why dont they be the GMS themselves?

The owners dont have enough information on the quality of players, the way in which teams will be consructed/coached or how young talent may develop to make educated and logical decisions on these matters.

Any decision made by owners to veto an agreed upon trade is purely emotional and irrational

It allowed the Griz to rebuild quickly. It is just Laker hate. At the time trading for Pau was so unfair Pop wanted it vetoed. Now a few years later Pau and Odom aren't worth CP3 and the NBA actually did veto the deal.

I wanted LA to keep Pau and thought we gave up too much, now I'm just pissed that the deal was cancelled because it was to the Lakers and for no other reason. That is what really has me pissed off.

Exactly

That trade was great for Memphis. The only people that understood that were the PROFESSIONALS who make those judgments for a living.

Privately, us Lakers fans knew the value of Marc Gasol and so did other GMs.

Kwame brown and his salaray relief was very valuable at the time too because there werent many other expiring contracts around.

How should Houston and LAkers deal with the unmotivated playes in respected teams when they now know they werent needed anymore. What the hell is wong with David Stern, Dan Gilbert and MArk Cuban I bet you if paul would be going to their teams and this trade was rejectd they would make a big fuss. Seirously im just going to tune into football and hockey, screw the NBA it is turning into a nuisance basketball league. Really this is the last thing NBA needed after alockout and belive me their ratings will go down even more. PLus what do the HOrnets do now they are not going to get such a packag anymore and you really think thee is any chance in hell Paul signs back with Neworleans after this. He is going to not change his mind about getting traded to any damn team and signing an extension and if he stays in Orleans when he turns into a free agent he will leave for nothing. David Stern really fu88d neworleans the most in this because the lakers will stay the same houston will stay the same but NEworleans is going to loose a guy for nothing. Tell me if Pal gets traded to the knicks if there is any chance how he hell would that deal be valid. Wouldnt it aggrevate the fanbase even more. David stern is a dum jew, usually most jews are smart and make good business descions but not him loll.

The funniest part is how he pretends that Laker's fans knew who Marc Gasol was let alone his value... :laugh:

The fact that anyone claims to have said that deal was equal is beyond funny...


Lastly, to boycott the NBA because David Stern won't allow the owners to collectively break the law is absurd...

Laker's fans might be mad, but imagine what would happen if they traded for Chris Paul and then had a judge mandate that the trade be rescinded along with a hefty settlement the way of the players directly after a lockout that nearly cancelled an entire season...

David Stern would be breaking the law if he blocked a team's competitive balance by unnecessarily blocking a trade... He would only do it if it violated law or the CBA...

Us Laker fans knew that Marc Gasol was TEARING UP the euro leagues and so did GMs around the league.

LOL lakerfans are the most egocentric sports fans i have ever known in nearly 40 years of my life. every one of them! :mad:


The funniest part is how he pretends that Laker's fans knew who Marc Gasol was let alone his value... :laugh:

The fact that anyone claims to have said that deal was equal is beyond funny...


Lastly, to boycott the NBA because David Stern won't allow the owners to collectively break the law is absurd...

Laker's fans might be mad, but imagine what would happen if they traded for Chris Paul and then had a judge mandate that the trade be rescinded along with a hefty settlement the way of the players directly after a lockout that nearly cancelled an entire season...

David Stern would be breaking the law if he blocked a team's competitive balance by unnecessarily blocking a trade... He would only do it if it violated law or the CBA...

People hate the Lakers like they hate the Yankees. There is no use in arguing. They will always argue against anyone pro Lakers in anything. They are called contrarians. If the Heat were good and had any titles, their haters would attempt to do the same thing.

Technically, it is a violation of anti-trust law...

Stern would have asked for a vote if it wasn't...

Bid rigging comes to mind...

The only way Stern outright blocks this deal is because it's against the CBA or against the law...

If Stern allows the trade to go through, he faces possible litigation from the NBAPA...

Plus, Stern undoubtably loses his job...

It is absolutely ILLEGAL for Stern to outright block a trade just because he feels like it...

Don't you think the NBAPA would file a grievance, in court, on behalf of Chris Paul ???

Stern has no right to block the Los Angeles Lakers right to be competitive in their marketplace...

Blocking a trade for the hell of it, clearly, does that...



Stern isn't going to put his job on the line because he decided that he would start moderating trades and only allowing the ones that are fair to be processed...

In fact the Grizzlies knew a lot about Marc he played high school ball in Memphis and practiced at the facility when Pau was a Grizzly.

They won't even bother to understand that the Memphis only wanted Kwame because he was the biggest available expiring contract or that LA gave up two first round picks.

All you will ever hear about the Pau trade is that it was for Kwame Brown like they actually wanted Kwame and not his contract. Nobody will mention that as a result Memphis got Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph with two first round picks.

Its complete hypocrisy and ignorance.

Everyone complains about the Gasol/Kwame trade but real NBA guys --- those QUALIFIED to be making such deicisions, understood the value of Marc Gasol.

IF that trade was SOOOOO one sided, how do you think the Lakers would look with Marc Gasol and Bynum in the middle right now?

How easy would it be for them to trade Marc Gasol for CP3 at this point?

GMs are paid to do what they do because they understand basketball players better than the owners.

Oh come on. At the time of that trade there was no way you could know that Marc Gasol was going to turn into a good player or not. He was a prospect and like any prospect they can fail.

But to trade a huge star in Pau for ****ing Kwame and the possibility of a good player was ********. That will forever go down as the most lopsided trade in history.

If you werent a Laker fan you would say the exact same thing.

Get over it, the Paul deal didnt happen. Youre still the ****ing Lakers, you should feel lucky to call them your team.

In all these boycott threads in the past I've made some sarcastic comment implying not only would it not work but is a bad idea.

This time I'm behind the idea. You don't block a trade that is within league rules, that is the sole purpose of trade approvals is does this trade follow trade guidelines and doing this on the day of the CBA signing is perfect symbolism.

The lockout happened because bad business men lost money for there franchises by miss running 2/3 of the franchises in the league and then they pressure a spineless commissioner (who I have defender quite a few times) and he violated the CBA himself as well as those owners by not allowing the deal.

Nothing changes. The lockout was partially about the league becoming more competitive and star players not all ending up in big market teams...yet...that is what is happening again.

I am all for "boycotting" the NBA but its because nothing has changes from the lockout. Bigmarkets continue to get all-star players...small market teams suffer and the league is less competitive...

Don't people want to see a fair and balanced league instead of a handful of huge market teams winning in the playoffs like always with all the household names going to the same teams over and over again...

Jesus christ, you people don't understand anything do you? The Hornets are owned by the league, so everyone of the owners (I think, or maybe just the majority) have to agree to the trade. Obviously they didn't.

It wasn't Stern saying "UH OH SUPER TEAM! HE CAN'T GO TO LA LOLOL, PULLING THE PLUG!!!".
Actually the owners complained to Stern and he stopped the deal to prevent another juggernaut team. The point is that this was a great deal for New Orleans I mean Odom, Martin and Scola, Dragic and 2 draft picks. They are not getting a better deal than that which is a crazy amount of compensation for losing Paul. This deal was denied to prevent Paul from joining up with Dwight in L.A it's clear and simple to see that. That is what bothers me is that this deal was not done in the interest of the Hornets franchise or there fans it was done in the interest of the owners and Stern.

While getting Paul probably leads to Howard as well, I do really feel for Hornets fans. They actually would be much better if the trade goes down.

Dude, quit crying and get over it. The Lakers didn't have something go there way for once, oh my god the world is ending. What does it matter if the owners are GM's or not? Who signs the checks and hires the GM's? You think GM's anywhere in the NBA make moves without checking with their owner first? No, thats absolutely rediculous. The point he was making is that since the Hornets are a league owned team, then the owners get a say in this matter. And who is to say the Lakers didn't tell the Hornets GM "Hey, I know things are looking shaky over there, but if you lose that job we have one for you over here. I mean, how would this trade make the Hornets better? I'm sure someone else could make a better deal for Chris Paul. What's next, Bynum for Howard straight up?

Just so everyone gets this...


It is absolutely ILLEGAL for Stern to outright block a trade just because he feels like it...

It has to be illegal or violate the terms of the collective bargaining agreement...


Don't you think the NBAPA would file a grievance, in court, on behalf of Chris Paul ???

Stern has no right to block the Los Angeles Lakers right to be competitive in their marketplace...

Blocking a trade for the hell of it, clearly, does that...



Stern isn't going to put his job on the line because he decided that he would start moderating trades and only allowing the ones that are fair to be processed...

That's insane...

Thank you...:clap:

If the NBA owners own the Hornets collectively don't the teams owners have a right to veto any trade, especially if they have a financial consideration involved? Quit crying Lakers fans! I think you all should boycott the NBA, and you should start by stopping your stupid *** posts on here.

Long time lurker, this thread made me bite the bullet and sign up just so I can respond.

Why is it so hard to understand since the league owns the Hornets they would've been forced to pay the extra $15 million coming in from the contracts. The owners are essentially paying to watch the team they are competing against get better. Why does every Laker fan I know is out crying that the league is against them.

Laker fans are acting as if the owners are now going to veto any trade now. Today has shown how delusional some of you guys are.

hey what can you do. it is what it is. welcome to the forum and hope you come by and post in our little home. the true clipper fans will enjoy another real fan of this franchise. since your name is SD clippers, I'm assuming you are an old-timer clipper fan like me. we can use more clipper vet fans who can remember all the ups and downs...downs... and more downs we have had.

That block trade will hurt the NBA. If that trade does not go trough i am done with the NBA. This has to be one of if not the worst moments in NBA history. They had the right to do what they did but the fact that they did it and the reason they did it is very unethical. I think stern should loose his job for that move. I will now question everything he does. He misused his power, fines he will hand out to get back at players and owners and most feared of all how games will be called. Will he help small market teams win games over big markets? His character is now in question. In the past i have seen players not get calls and had to fight for a fear fight only to receive a heavy fine for speaking the truth of bias officiating. It is now clear stern was the driven force behind it all. He should fine himself and be removed. He has cast a dark shadow over the NBA and all moves he makes will be questioned. At his position he can not be bias balanced or not toward small market or larger markets. Fans determine the Market not the players. As good of a team Miami had last year fans had to be ask to sit in there seats while sorry Knicks had a full house. Who knew Ariza and Shannon before they were a Laker?

That is complete BS

The owners are not GMs.

The GMs are hired to make those decisions. The owners are not qualified to make decisions about basketball talent.

That argument you made is complete BS.

The trade was blocked because they didn't want Paul going to the Lakers

Obviously you don't get it. An example, last year the Raps and Cats made a trade, even told the players the deal was done. Michael Jordan (part owner of the Cats) swooped in at the last minute and nixed the deal. Any owner, as long as they are not a silent partner can veto any trade right up until the commissioners office has given it the stamp of approval.

By nixing the Chris Paul trade, he screwed over THREE teams. Now, there's a strong possibility that New Orleans might lose Chris Paul for nothing. NO team is going to be offer anything nearly as good as New Orleans was going to get from the Lakers and the Rockets. If the trade would've went through, this would've been New Orleans' lineup:

PG - Jarred Jack
SG - Kevin Martin
SF - Trevor Ariza
PF - Luis Scola
C - Emeka Okafor

6th man- Lamar Odom.

That is a playoff team...EASILY. In fact, i think that team is actually BETTER than New Orleans' current team with Chris Paul. No small market team is going to be able to offer anything that will come close to matching that.If any small market team try to offer anything comparable, they risk losing everything for a 1 year rental because Chris Paul is not going to resign with them. Big market teams who are able to come close to matching that are not going to due to what happened.

LA got screwed because they now have two disgruntled star. Odom was so disgruntled that LA was forced to trade him to Dallas for basically nothing.

Houston got screwed because Houston was planning to pair up Pau Gasol and Nene in the front court which would've been lethal. But obviously, that's not happened.

Thanks David Stern...for screwing THREE teams and for screwing up the NBA.


While it's not the individual team's fault that David Stern nixed the trade and that it might be unfair to punish the individual team, what David Stern did was WRONG. It is beyond wrong. Just griping among ourselves and on the internet is not going to do anything. The ONLY way for David Stern to know how wrong he is and for the NBA to take necessary action to make all this up is for them to FEEL how mad the fans are and the ONLY way for the NBA to actually "feel" the fan's anger is for us to hurt their pocketbooks.

What do yall say? Let's show the NBA how angry we are at what happened. Let's tell the NBA it's time for David Stern to retire. BOYCOTT the NBA. Don't go to any of the games and don't purchase any officially licensed NBA products. Who's with me?!!?!

Exactly. Picking up aging players does nothing for the Hornets' future. Nothing. People can't see that because they're buying all the stupid media hype about how "awful" it is that the deal was squashed.

you are letting your distaste for big market teams and/or the lakers affect your judgement. from a basketball perspective, this was a fine trade for NO. They have only 6 players on contract. they get back 3 starters of whom can actually play, a young backup pg who can develop and a 1st round pick.

I agree 100%. Kevin Martin alone, if you go based on PPG, averaged nearly 8 more points a game than Chris Paul at 23.3 PPG. Add in Scola and Odom who averaged 18.1 and 14.4 PPG, you are adding nearly 56 PPG to your team. I'd say that's pretty darn good for a guy who obviously does not want to be in New Orleans.

I think more so than anything, people are over-valuing Chris Paul a bit.

Its because of mindless tools that keep going to games or watching a sport no matter what that make the owners feel invincible and act like dictators.

WE CONTROL THE SPORT, not owners

without fans there would be no NBA, no Dodgers etc.

I'd rather boycott the STEROID league aka MLB. Those records are worthless now.

Yup, but at least guys like Ryan Braun and Jose Bautista will lead the new generation out of the steriods era :D oh wait..

On a side note, how do you feel about the Sacremeto-LA series about a decade ago when the Kings were up 3-2 in the series, and it was determined that Tim Donahgy was the ref for that game, which had a large difference in free throws favoring LA?
