CP3 trade should have been approved!

I know, "another CP3 trade post", but hear me out. I'd like to give my opinion on the deal. I'm gonna start out by saying the trade should have went through. Why? Hornets certainly benefited from the trade big time. The Lakers and Rockets if anyone lost in the deal. Basketball reasons crap is garbage. For all the arguments about the value of CP3 to the team so they can be able to sell the team to a bidder isn't a factor. It shouldn't be if it is. Bidders have attempted to buy the Hornets and the reason the deal didn't happen was because the bidders didn't like the location of the team. Stern wants the team to stay in New Orleans which is why the team has yet to be sold at this time. CP3 has already stated he is leaving as a free agent at the end of the season. What value does that bring to the franchise? For 66 games he is there and he is gone if you keep him. Why keep him and get nothing? Hornets got one helluva deal if you ask me compared to what the Cavs and Raptors received last summer.

What is wrong with the trade? 2 superstars aka great players on one team? The Lakers got worse with the deal if you ask me. Why do I say that? Look at their frontcourt....Who is starting for the Lakers at power forward or Center on opening night? Won't be Bynum because he is suspended and he is injury prone. Missed 17 games by avg the last couple of seasons. What will happen when they face teams with bigs? They are gonna get destroyed in the paint and out rebounded just about every game because now they are thin. That was one of the great assets that led to their championships was their depth in the frontcourt. Now with no Odom or Gasol....who will fill in for injury prone Bynum? Who will start? Come on now!!

Rockets if anybody lost in the deal.....Gasol for a 1st round pick, Kevin Martin, Scola, and, Dragic. Are you kidding me?

Hornets ran away with this deal big time. I have no idea why anyone would think they lost in this deal. They received 2 draft picks, Dragic, Scola, Kevin Martin, Odom. Look at that solid lineup they would have. PG: Jack or Dragic, SG: Martin, SF:Ariza, PF:Scola, C: Okafor, and 6th man Odom. What is wrong with that lineup? I'd rather the Hornets get something than nothing for CP3.

You have owners out there complaining like Dan Gilbert. He is one of the main reasons why the NBA had a lockout. Making new rules where players can't return to their team after being traded. Brings back memories of Z and Jamison deal. I find it hard to feel any more pity for the Cavs and their fans.

I hate Lebron James.....why? Many reasons

Heat fans just don't get it. I have explained to you several times about this. I disliked LeBron James long before he made "the decision". I rooted against them every single game when he was on the Cavs. Do the same thing with the Heat now. I criticize James for a bunch of reasons. One I don't think he deserved his first MVP award.....I thought D-Wade was the MVP that year. Another reason I hate James......the guy never gets called for fouls like my favorite player Dwight Howard. Howard gets called for more fouls than probably any star in the NBA. Lebron gets the best superstar treatment of any NBA star in the league. In the East Finals the refs were against the Magic. Even people on these boards agreed with that. The infamous foul Lebron shooting the 3 and Dwight got a clean block and called a foul on it. Youtube it my friend clean ball.

Lebron also showed no sportsmanship after the game. Every single year the supporting cast was criticized. Not James at all. It was never James fault for a loss. It was either supporting cast or the coach. No blame for James. He is constantly praised. More ESPN coverage than Brett Favre. It at least feels that way anyway. Every team he is on they are always chose as the favorite. They never win despite all the talent they bring in. Kobe/James commercial favoriting him to have that matchup. How much more biased do you need to be? They bring in guys like Ben Wallace, Jamison, and Shaq. Still can't get it done. Win a ring for the King bs. Gilbert did everything he could to make James happy. Some feel he quit on the team in the playoffs. The guy loves the spotlight a bit too much.

Go into the summer.....he was more talked about than the NBA Conference Final games. Which is a slap to the face to everybody who is still playing. He is praised all the time for his defensive ability. I made a post about a year ago stating his defense isn't as good as the stats show. Which I thought was very true. All the blocks come against guards going up for layups or from a player who is being guarded by another player. I seen times in the playoffs he would guard the guards rather than the forwards. When he faces a guy like Melo the guy gives up 40. When you face an above avg scorer it isn't so easy is it? Melo is basically at one time the best small forward besides Lebron. Durant has emerged. Never really seen them play each other.

In any case he gets everyone talking about him in the summer. The guy is treated like a super hero/King. He is an arrogant ego maniac. I absolutely hate the guy. He comes on announcing his decision date to decide what team he is going to. ESPN was so annoying all day long. We got a big tribute show for Lebron. I mean it was every hour. It lasted like all week it felt like at least. We heard all the predictions and what not. The day of the thing hear about Wade and Bosh wishing him luck and so on. I was so annoyed by the coverage I was ready to turn the channel before he made it. He finally made it and decided to take his talents to South Beach. Getting all the questions out and what not. Than we get the aftermath coverage that lasts for days. Cav fans burning his jerseys and so on. Of course the Heat were the favorites like every year.

His team previously had the best regular season record in the NBA past two seasons. The talent was there in my opinion anyway. He shows no respect to his former teammates nor his former team. His arrogance will not lead him to a championship. Hope he never wins a thing. He is a piece of garbage. Spits in the way of everybodys accomplishments. Especially the scoring title that was won by Durant. Oh I could have won that if I wanted it. How much of a slap in the face is that? Disrespectful idiot. Than he goes on in interviews like we arn't gonna win one, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or even 7. We are gonna have a dynasty. Him and the so-called three Kings slapping every single NBA team in the face. Acting as if he along with them are better than everyone in the NBA. He expects not to be criticized? Look at these messages from my twitter page. Being superstar isn't all fun. You get payed more money than all those hateful people sent you. I'm sure all those millions of dollars he makes can cure his feelings. No good piece of garbage. Hate his guts. Go cry me a river James. You make more money in a year than any of us make in a lifetime. You don't want to be criticized don't act like you are all that. Don't disrespect former teammates and other teams in the NBA. You are not gonna be given a championship on a silver platter. You gotta work hard for it. Cavs did everything for you and you spit in their face. Refs try their best to give you a championship and you still can't get one. Hope you never do. That will be the worst thing that could ever happen in the NBA. No good piece of crap. Cry to someone who cares. Everyone is criticized. I am as well, but I would rather be criticized and be making the money he is making. Get all the fame with it as well. One of the most praised pieces of crap and still cries about it.
