Have you ever been in a fantasy league where a trade is pending that benefits all parties involved, but somehow gets vetoed because there are a few spiteful parties that don’t want to see some teams improve? Well that’s basically what David Stern has done with the vetoing of the Chris Paul trade to the Lakers.
Now this was a trade that all three teams involved seemed to be very happy with. And yes there is a conflict of interest because the NBA currently owns the Hornets, and Stern has some vested interest in keeping Paul on the Hornets. But if he is going to block Paul from going to the Lakers, will he let him go anywhere? I mean if his stance is he doesn’t want small market teams losing their star players to big market teams, where can Paul go?
And coming off the fiasco that was the NBA lockout, Stern is already on thin ice. And now this, which in my eyes is the final straw. Stern must go, because he has clearly lost touch with reality. Him blocking the Chris Paul trade to the Lakers is absolutely ridiculous, and Stern should resign immediately.
