    Sports Guy: Stern vetoed the Chris Paul trade!

    Sports Guy sent out the following tweet at 9:07PM ET:

    "This is crazy: Hearing the NBA (owner of New Orleans) vetoed the CP3 trade because it wasn't in the best interests of the league."

    ESPNSteinLine tweets at 9:09PM ET:

    "One source close to the three-team Chris Paul trade talks just told: 'The deal is off.'"

    Maybe Stern isn't the bad guy, after all. :)

    Trade is in limbo. Owners aren't pleased that a league-owned team would make a trade of this magnitude with a club that is already loaded:

    So what do we think, was it vetoed because LA gave up so little to get CP3 or the fact CP3 was going to a perennial contender which flys in the face of the support the small market team debate which raged during the lockout.  This is important.

    Classy move by Stern, I am impressed that he felt the heat.
    NO shouldnt give away talent like that to the Lakers. Period.

    I have always disrespected Stern on many fronts but I put this another one in his positive points column. Another good move, Commish!

    [QUOTE]i don't give stern any brownie points, he was the one trying to get it done in the 1st place and if not for the rest of the nba owners it would have gone through. thank the owners, not stern, im sure DA has something to say.

    The owners and Paul Gasol!

    Reports are owners squashed Hou-LA-NO deal, citing conflict of interest for NBA-owned NO. But sources say Pau didn't want to go to Hou, too.

    As with everything else, we humans tend to over step our bounds until forced to stop.  This "shooting your way out of town to play with your buddies" was a slippery slope that had to be stopped.

    I still think the deal will go through.  Stern put it on hold - and then after a painstaking review will allow it tomorrow.  That is called CYA.

    Re: Sports Guy: Stern vetoed the Chris Paul trade!

    The browner lining to the veto is that the Lakers now have all their assets back for a Dwight Howard acquisition, which would be worse (from the Celtics' perspective) than seeing Chris Paul on the Lakers. The league won't veto a Howard-to-LA deal. The conflict of interest issue arises only because the NBA operates the Hornets. This makes me wonder whether Paul can be traded to Boston, or anywhere for that matter. How can the league say no to the Lakers and yes to the Celtics without looking like they're playing favorites? I could see the league allowing Paul to go to a lower-echelon team via trade. That's about it.
