As bad as it sucks to be a fan of an average small market team.....man, I can't even imagine how bad it sucks to be a NO Hornets fan right now. The latest deal that David Stern turned down... Chris Kaman - a very solid young-ish center. Al-Farouq Aminu - a lottery pick just last year. Eric Gordon - a young borderline all-star. Minnesota's unprotected 2012 1st round pick - which could very well end up being the #1 overall pick in an incredibly loaded draft. They turned down ALL THAT for a guy that's just going to leave for nothing at the end of the year!? IMO, Minnesota's pick alone would have been enough to pull the trigger. Super-star for a super-star (potentially). It doesn't get much better for a team in NO's situation. AND they were including three other good players!?! That's an entire new team right there. Because ERIC BLEDSOE wasn't included in the deal!? Give me a freaking break. You think the deals are going to get better as CP3 gets closer to leaving for nothing!? If Paul leaves N.O....no one goes to/watches any of their games this year...and the team (i.e. David Stern and his bosses) lose money in the short-term. They're getting COMPLETELY SCREWED and I can't believe there isn't more uproar about it. Oh wait...yes I can...no one cares about the great game of basketball anymore. Thanks Stern.
