No because it would be vetoed. Face it, Stern has dug himself into a deep hole. CP3 can't be traded to any big market teams because it would be vetoed. Say Paul plays out there year, leaves to a bigger market and leaves with the Hornets with nothing.

Stern, its time for you to retire.

Everyone acts like David Stern did this out of hate for the Lakers.. SMH.. It would best for the Hornets to get some draft picks considering how strong next years draft is.. I would trade him to the Clips for Mins 1st rounder and try to pry away EG... and then suck for a season and land 2 great picks for next year..

12-11-2011, 01:19 AM
what everyone keeps misunderstanding is that the fact that the kabash got put on the laker deal doesnt mean every deal from there on out with other teams is going to suffer the same fate.

For instance. Rondo(youn PG) plus Green, and two first round draft picks going striaght to NO is more significant than the three team deal that had been out there. So yeah Boston is a big market team but they were sacrificing more in terms of youth, all star pg, and potential in the two first rounders.

Not saying Lakers didnt sacrifice much, but what NO ended up with wasnt going to please the stern god.

Now if Gasol went to NO that may have been different, but other factors come into play.

So you can't assume that just because Lakers didn't get what they wanted now everything else is going to go that way. The only hole dug is that the Celtics couldnt send say Jermaine and rondo to Indy, and Indy send some garbage to NO, and C's get Paul. That wont happen. But Danny Ainge was willing to sell the farm.

So stay tuned.

If they get Dwight somehow using the TE and Bynum that would probably help them more than if they got CP3. Its easy to build around a superstar C (Magic did a decent job for 1 year, but then they got VC and Hedo).

Stern ruined this trade according to every source pretty much.

Reasons why Stern is being blamed:
-All 3 teams were waiting for 36 hours to try and get a deal done, because the NBA was "mulling over offers"
-the three deals initially were great, all teams revised their deals after getting blocked, adding players and draft picks, but the league according to one source said took far too long to decide.

If you actually think a 30+ year old Odom and Gasol and their huge contracts or glass knees Bynum is in any way equivalent in value to Eric Gordon, you should end yourself.

Well, at least they have something to build around and no one is going to dump a bunch of contracts on them because Kaman's is about to expire. They can also get a good unprotected pick. Unlike the first deal where they are going to be stuck in mediocrity and have no shot on someone buying the team.

AND i think the big market thing is WAY over blown.. if the league owned the magic they wouldnt send dwight to the thunder.. its about the top teams screwing the bad teams for the better players.. it just so happend that alot of these small market teams are owned by bad owners with bad gms.. san antonio will bounce back and look at how the thunder became..

its a bad team thats getting a good player and giving up one.. the rockets players only make sense if they had a superstar and those guys were going to surround that superstar because other than that , that roster is going to be a hawks like team..1st or 2nd round.. never much.. no point of investing money into that type

I disagree. CP3-Griffin-Gordon is much better for the league than CP3-Kobe-Howard. Besides the fact that I'm sure every owner hates LA.

There were clearly side deals and something under the table going on. There is absolutely no way LA should have been getting a 20mil trade exception and CP3 as they were in that deal.

Wouldn't be the case with LAC.

Celtics with 3 aging stars (KG is in deep decline and Doc already said he'll be playing 30 MPG tops), minus Rondo (and Bass?) with no #1's this year, and no Center to speak of aren't even a top 5 competitor for the title w/ Paul, and would need to morph KG and Allen into something next year to have any shot beyond that.

Would CP3 even sign an extension with Boston? Would it even get vetoed?

He says he won't but if the Celts offer him max money and years, they can pay him over $20M more then any other team. Money talks, and KG's and Allen's slots next year offer an opportunity to bring in someone(s) serious. If the West deal also goes through he's another nice piece to consider along with Green for the future. No promises, but potential AND a lot more cash and security if he stays.

There's no doubt you rebuild and you don't take the aging players. Stern did the Hornets a massive favour. Even if they get "nothing" for Paul it would be better than getting players that have little value in the future.

Lmfao, Bynum for d12???? The stupidest **** I've heard. Bynum is injury plagued and overrated. Ain't gonna happen. Gotta give up alot more than that.

What's overrated is that statement. You haven't been reading current articles about the guy. Man are you in for a surprise. He's going to have a career year regardless of jersey

I'd have to agree with both comments.

After this lockout it would have stunk to see another perennial big spender build another dynasty by picking the carcasses of weaker franchises again.

And baseball has been a complete joke since the steroid scandals that were ignored for 15 years. Hello Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Mark McGuire, you have a new buddy. He's the NL MVP this year. :laugh2:

Holy **** pro sport is corrupt. lol.

lol you actually think the public cares about the steroid issue at this point. This isn't the early 2000s. When the story broke it was wow Ryan Braun and then shortly after it was *shoulder shrug* The steroid issue was beaten to death and now fans could care less.

Oh yea it's better for the small market teams to rule the day. That Cav/Spur final was great for the league.:rolleyes:

This kind of post shows how corrupted pro sport is. Even the fans don't care about the corruption any more. They just want their fantasy trades. smh

It's funny because it's true. It's not anyone else's fault that Dan Gilbert surrounded the beat player in the game with retreads, role players, and bench guys.

Lol at corruption in sports. Sports have never been completely clean. We're not living in a perfect society.
