    dan gilbert > you ..reason for nba nixed trade? "dwight & paul WOULD end up w lakers"

    with the chris paul trade that just got nixed.. and now reading dan gilberts alleged letter.. i can understand what the owners were seeing .. and why dan gilbert for all the heat he takes is a smart man.. ..SOMETIMES lol

    IF the league is forced to continue with the deal.. the lakers save 11 million after the trade? am i correct?

    incoming : paul = $16,359,805
    outgoing : gasol & odom total =$27,614,150

    now.. with the freed up cap space after trade..the lakers will then use the amnesty on metta world peace (6.8 million) & the lakers will THEN HAVE 17 million in cap space

    the lakers can offer the EXACT trade that the nets are offering for dwight..except dwight can force his way to l.a now

    brook lopez & picks for dwight howard and the contract of hedo turkologu

    instead now its bynum & picks for dwight howard and hedo turkologu


    if im seeing things differently than fine.. but if this whole scenerio plays out this way which can truely happen if the court case reverses this nixed trade and than dwight forces his way ..

    i might be done with cheering for other star players forever..

    ill just stick with rose and not this girly wave of players wanting to cheat their way to winning a title.. lebron didnt need wade or bosh ..and ironically he lost to a guy who didnt need another allstar to prove it..

    ima bulls fan by the way lol
    sorry if im being a troll about lebron but i just find that too ironic..

    p.s dont tell me that because dwight is saying he likes nj now he isnt using that as a p.r move for him looking like he wasnt torn with the lakers and now woke up this morning with that decision and spoke to his mom and now feels more better about it out of nowhere.. dwight paul and bryant are probably speaking about this now..

    i cant be the only one who sees this possibilty..

    Where in the world would Lakers have 17 million cap space? Kobe takes literally 2/3 of Lakers cap.

    Not sure if you would have said the same thing if Stern blocked a potential Dwight trade to Chi-town...

    Trading Dwight to Chicago isn't as lethal as LA getting CP3 and Howard. Chicago would probably have to give up more anyway because that's the way things are.

    He said save, not cap space. LOL

    And small market teams shouldn't complain about trades. If they have nothing to trade then why are they so upset?

    Make more smaller/better trades and work yourselves up. No sense in trying to mortgage your whole team for a superstar that will never get any support.

    The only reason why they didn't want this trade to go down is if the lakers got cp3 then it's a lock that they get Dwight and the league dosent want another super team like the heat. Even tho if the trade did happen an then the lakers got Dwight lakers vs heat would be great to watch.

    You have some giant holes in your logic here.....

    1) the 17 million in reduced salary you speak of is NOT money the Lakers can spend on other players, because we are NOT below the cap.

    2) Dan Gilbert complained about the salary difference because the $40 million (over 3 years) that the Lakers WILL pay in luxury tax, gets distributed among the league (into Dan Gilbert's pocket). With this trade, that money doesn't go into his pocket...

    3) To fix this, the Lakers could take back Emeka Okafor, then the money is set for all and everyone is happy, right? WRONG... then Gilbert would be mad that we gave up Gasol and Odom and got Paula AND Okafor - it would have been better if we had just taken less salary! - no way to win with this guy... its always going to be "a travesty"

    So priceless. A Bulls fan that is applauding the NBA vetoing the trade in another thread to the Lakers doesn't think trading Howard to the Bulls would be worse than LA getting Paul with a hypothetical trade for Dwight.

    its not free cap space im talking about.. the lakers will forver be over the cap.. its the way that they can trade within the same salary % i think 20 % or so.. he explains it in his letter.. well thats what i took from it..

    if im wrong then im wrong ..i just see how the lakers actually can with the amnesty and prehaps retirement of maybe fisher & or walton.. it just makes too much sense.. and buss & mitch are smart enough to do it..

    The Lakers didn't disintegrate thie roster for Chris Paul? They traded two 7 footers (Odom is 6-11) their starting all-star power forward/back-up center and their back-up PF and sixth man of the year for Paul. What team would give up more?

    It was even a three team deal to get the Hornets younger players and picks.

    And if it's in the rules? Why shouldn't they be allowed to? The NBA should NOT be allowed to veto something because they think the team would be too good... thats damn ridiculous...

    If the Lakers were doing something illegal.. fine.. but THEY built up assets.. THEY got ready for trading season, and they found something that worked for them... its ridiculous to quash that...
