    They claim it's for the best interest of the league.

    I hate the fact that stars are all leaving the small markets to play for NY, Miami and L.A.... However the NBA had no valid reason to block this trade. Chris Paul is leaving at the end of the season, at least the Hornets were getting something in return. Now they won't get anything for him.

    :facepalm:

    thats what I thought too...how is it for the better of the league and team if he leaves and the team gets nothing in return. Would it have been different if the team wasn't owned by the NBA?

    Probably but who knows? David Stern has officially lost his mind so hard to know what's going on. Some people think Chris Paul might sue the NBA to force the trade.

    :jj:

    Dwight Howard Tampering? New Jersey Nets Made Illegal Contact With Howard, According To Reports

    :facepalm:



    The New Jersey Nets are one of two teams against whom the Orlando Magic are considering filing tampering charges for illegal contact with Dwight Howard, reports Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick.

    Sources have told ESPN's Chris Broussard that Nets owner Mikhail Prokorov and general manager Billy King met with Howard Thursday night in Miami. Late Thursday night, Broussard reported that Howard had made New Jersey his number one choice and was expected to request a trade to the Nets as early as Friday.

    I heard Stern bowed to pressure from various NBA owners.
