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.

Yao Ming voted in to the all-star game situation

I personally am upset with the fact the guy was voted in to the all-star game this year. Only playing 5 games this season. I think his career is about to come to an end with all the injuries causing him to miss several amount of games. I don't think injured players especially players who are out for the season should be voted in. They should be taken off the ballot cuz they can't play. Now I'm not saying if a guy is day to day or a guy who will be healthy come all-star weekend should stay off the ballot. It is a bit ridiculous of a guy like David Stern has to pick a suitable replacement. During the season I wasn't even voting for Yao in the all-star game. I was at the time voting for Camby til he got hurt. I voted a few times, but not for like 2 months. In any case I believe their should be something done about this in the future of the all-star games so we won't have to deal with it again. What do you think?
