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.

Spurs-sign or draft a center. Dalembert would be a good sign and I think he would take a pay cut to win a championship. Heck try Yoa if price isn't too steep.
Lakers-sign a point guard!! Aaron Brooks is available in FA and would take a paycut to play for them without a doubt.
Mavs-resign Tyson Chandler
Thunder-sign a power forward named Jeff Green. That would suck for Boston.
Nuggets-Hope Chandler and Afflalo sign qualifying offers and resign JR Smith.
Trail Blazers-sign a backup center since Oden won't be able to play til January.
Hornets-get a shooting guard and resign David West. Get a Deshaun Stevenson or a JR Smith. I think the price tag would be a bit steep to get Jason Richardson, but they should give it a try if they want.
Grizzlies-resign Marc Gasol
Chicago Bulls-sign a shooting guard obviously. Target is gonna be obviously on Richardson in which the place I think J-Rich will end up. JR Smith and Stevenson are also good targets as well.
Miami Heat-Get Lebron to work on his gmae....LOL! Resign Chalmers to me is a priorty for the Heat. He is cheap, young, and is one of the best FAs out there who is that cheap.
Boston Celtics-resign Jeff Green!
Orlando Magic-RESIGN J-Rich or try to do a sign and trade with a team to get something out of him.
Atlanta Hawks-resign Jamal Crawford for hopefully less than 10 million.
New York Knicks-sign a center! Just imagine Yoa joining New York. LOL! I'd try and save money for next offseason o.
76ers-resign Thaddeus Young!!
Pacers-sign a shooting guard!!

I was wondering what other posters would say which is the reason why I ask the question. To me honestly, LA is going to win title #6 even though I don't want them to. In any case, what team/teams do you believe can beat the Lakers in a 7 game series? I'm talking just West teams by the way. Not EAST teams! To me....I believe only 3 that has the potential to beat the Lakers. The three I give the best chance in the West is the Thunder. Thunder, I have been outspoken about how high I've been on the team. I believe OKC will be playing LA in the Western Conference Finals. Of course the Spurs with all their experience, home court, ect. This may surprise and it may not, but I believe the Blazers could take it to LA. The team is so under-rated. That trade they made for Wallace was a good one. It was overshadowed by the Melo deal. I liked the trade at the deadline Blazers made. If Roy is healthy, I believe the Blazers could beat the Lakers. Well of course, them are the three I give the best chance to beat LA in a 7 game series -Eastern conference teams. What do you think?

Chris Paul, CP3, whatever you want to call him he is gonna be named the MVP this year. Well that is what I predicted before the season began. His team just come off a win vs the 3 Kings(Miami Heat) with an outstanding performance. 19 assists, 13 points, and an upset victory over the media loved Miami Heat.
The Hornets are for sure making the playoffs unless injuries stop them. I hope for the best for the franchise going forward especially with all the rumors around CP3 wanting out of New Orleans.
In any case, if Okafor and the rest of CP3 teammates help him I think they can be a strong contender, but they have got to stay consistant. Not just during the season, but also in the playoffs. That is my unbiased prediction for the MVP winner for the 2010-11 NBA season.
