    Since the lockout is officially over, might as well start talking about the new season starting around Christmas.

    I'm glad it's over but still undecided about seeing any games this year. Depends on what the Nuggets do.

    Chris Paul of New Orleans Hornets seeks trade to New York Knicks, won't sign extension, according to report - ESPN New York

    Jeez.. The lockout isn't even over yet and the players are trying to screw things up already. It looks like they are hell bent on forming a few "superteams" and using the others for practice. At least it will provide another hurdle between Lebron's Heat and a ring.

    The Cavs benefit big time from having a season. Now, they can suck and get another high draft pick. They probably would have had a late round 1st if they season wouldn't have happened and they used the NHL model from a few years ago = average of past three years.

    If the Lakers get Chris Paul AND Dwight Howard along with Kobe, then the NBA is dead to me.

    The lockout was a big waste of time obviously. Nothing has changed. The only basketball I will watch is college ball. Sucks the NBA takes most of the good players.

    That cool that the Rockets would get Pau Gasol, but they have to give up 3 players.

    Lakers' deal for Chris Paul is a no-go, the NBA rules - latimes.com

    Is this the NBA brass admitting guilt? At least it shows that there is some concern that the competitive balance of the league is getting worse. It is a slippery slope, since the next trade that goes down without the league veto will be questioned as well (why this one and not that one?). I guess that they have a bit of permission to block the deal since they are controlling the Hornets, but not a good way to usher in the next phase of the labor agreement.

    It will get done, just give it some time. It is just an example of some owners throwing around their weight and Stern giving in. Just another prime example of why Stern should be removed.

    I'm of course a Chris Paul and Hornets fan... But I kinda wish the trade had gone through. What we were getting in return would have filled out the roster pretty good.

    I am not liking the new "amnesty" clause that they added in this CBA. Each team has one chance to buy out a contract in advance and take immediate cap relief. While some teams see this as a way to get out of a bad contract (the small market ones), teams like the Celtics, Knicks, Heat, Mavs, Lakers and waiting for the buyouts to begin. This is a chance for a team like the Heat who have their big bucks tied up in a two or three players sign a talent that would normally get a max-type contract for the minimum. If a guy is bought out of two or more contract years, he can afford to play for a ring at the minimum since he has already pocketed his big money for the next few years. This gives the Heat a chance to add a Chauncey Billups or Baron Davis on the cheap. Just another means for the rich to get richer.

    Yeah Kevin Martin and Scola would have been nice pick-ups. I'm actually glad it didn't go through. IMO we would have been giving up too much for an aging P Gasol.
