And now the Lakers may have to pay Okafor, because he might be in the deal. That kinda sucks.
The Lakers are just Man City/Madrid of the NBA, except in this case you support them. In the other case you despise them.

Quite the day for so cal sports, two teams get two players that are the best in the league at their respective positions.

These things tend to happen in threes.

Crosby to LA next? It fits the pattern, stay tuned...

So we found out that there was a commissioner worse than Bettman today, who can veto deals because he doesn't like them. Great to know.

What was the reason for the hold on the trade?

David Stern didn't like it. That's the reason.

No, it was because the Hornets are basically owned by the other 29 owners. Don't forget that the Hornets don't have a real owner, so the rest of the league has the team's control. Small market ******** like Dan Gilbert is one of the owners that vetoed it. David Stern was forced to stop this trade from happening. He wouldn't have done anything had the Hornets had an owner. And even though I love seeing bad things happen to the Lakers (I'm a Clipper fan), this just wasn't fair to Laker fans, the team, and especially Chris Paul.

So, I know nothing about basketball outside of the game itself. Why exactly can't the Lakers trade for Chris Paul?

I don't know anything about basketball either, but from what I could tell the deal was nixed because a lot of other clubs felt it would make the Lakers too powerful. Is that the gist of it?

pretty much. Alot of owners complained about it. The commissioner has too much power. Just another reason why the NBA has become the crappiest league in america.

Well, the latest I've heard was that Chris Paul was going to sue the league.

It's was a great trade for the lakers but it was also a great trade for Houston and N.O. as well.

Heck, we were giving up 2 of our 4 best players in Odom and Gasol.

And on a non Los Angeles sports related tip...Ive rediscoverd "Black Celebration". What a ****ing fantastic album. How unbelieveably relevent is "New Dress" today even though Di is dead.

My 9 year old daughter was digging through my old DM cd's and asked me about a song she heard on sirrius called "World in My Eyes". How cool is that. I responded with "yeah, thats one of the best club songs ever written. It still is... Even 20 years later.

I'll never forget...Sometime in the dead of winter in 1991, 2:30am on a random Sunday morning. The Limelight. The smell of Drakkar, DaJarums and sweat with "World in my Eyes" pounding endlessly on the dance floor. Good times!

Any players taking PED should be banned for life and make their contracts null and void.

Otherwise, they'll keep taking the PED to score a hefty contract.

Who cares about a suspension when you got all that guaranteed money?
