The Team Owner of the Cleveland is acting like he is against the growing imperialism (forming strong teams with at least 3 Superstars) in the NBA wherein as his former player LeBron James left them helpless last year to join the Miami Heat and form a formidable Big 3 in the NBA. He was probably traumatized by what happened to his team that's why yesterday, he acted against the proposed Chris Paul Trade.
Reports have it that Mr. Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cavaliers' egged Mr. David Stern, the NBA Commissioner to disapprove the trade. Mr. Gilbert labeled the proposed trade a "Travesty", meaning, he deemed it to be unreasonable.
I feel sad for Chris Paul because he deserves to get a ring. He has served the New Orleans Hornets with all his 5'11 might and he did well with them despite having not so good teammates. I really feel that when he becomes a Laker, his chances of getting that much deserved championship ring will be higher. But, sadly his trade was not approved.
I don't see the proposed CP3 trade unreasonable. For one it is well balanced meaning, the teams that are involved will get the players that they need. The Hornets will get more big men who can help the ailing David West. Oh, I forgot, David West is now a free agent thus, the really need more big men. Again, I feel bad for the Hornets because the trade didn't happen.
In the proposed trade of Chris Paul, the Lakers will get him and then since it's a 3 team trade, Houston will get Pau Gasol and the Hornets will get Lamar Odom, Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and a 2012 First Round Pick.
