The NBA can suck it blocking that move. That was a great deal for the Hornets and they losing owners on the CP3 sweepstakes all got butt hurt and forced Stern to revoke the deal. Chris Paul goes to the Lakers and not their team... BOO FRICKIN' HOO.

Gayness times infinity and beyond.

This deal did look pretty fair for all 3 parties. I don't get it. Hornets being owned by the NBA is clearly a conflict of interest here. Would Stern have blocked the trade if anyone else owned the Hornets? Probably not!

As a Lakers fan, I am glad the Lakers are going after Chris Paul and not Dwight Howard (Hack a Shaq 2.0). I think fans of all 3 teams should be equally upset.

Papz, that video needs to be edited to also show Tim Donaghy calling a defensive foul and Stern shooting a free throw to complete the 3-point play.
