I don't think the penalty against the Nets would be not getting Dwight Howard. They'd probably just have to forfeit a pick and some cash. Only issue with that is that the pick could be used in a Howard trade, but they could just offer Marshon Brooks instead.
how can you let him go to the nets, just after you veto a fair (by all intentions) trade?
i dont think Howard will ever be a Net after this.
holy crap has the NBA been a cluster **** the last few days.
-The Paul trade.
-Fantasizing about whether or not LA would then flip Bynum to get Howard
-The rejection of the Paul trade
-Everything that has come out about that rejection since
-Chandler to the Knicks, combined with all of the scenarios that resulted (trade Amare for Paul, amnesty or trade Billups, etc).
-Dwight Howard about to demand a trade to NJ
-Hold up, possible tampering meeting... or was there?
-People acknowledging Eddy Curry may have once played basketball
-Brandon Roy retiring
-Stars/great players of my youth being bought out/amnesty choices today (Rip Hamilton, Gilbert Arenas, Vince Carter)
-Stopping and thinking that Paul is still on NO, Howard on Orlando, Nene still a free agent, and so many more things that have YET to happen.
