    Stern was wrong as usual

    The fact that the Celtics traded Rivers to the Clippers without KG shows that the two deals were not totally connected.

    No it just means the Celtics went back and pursued the one they most wanted done.

    Stern is going to leave a legacy of the worst commsioner ever in any sport. He began with some of the most marketable situations followed by one of the most poular players ever and micromanaged this league from being one of the fastest growing popular sport to being back to a second tier major league like the NHL. He also handed the keys over to the inmates and now they run the asylum. He had the distinction of having on of his top tier officials spending time for gambling related activities and followed that up by tightening down on any complaints about suspicious officiating by fining anyone who ever even murmmered a complaint and giving his cronies more authority. His mom must be so proud.

    Wrong about what?  He said the original proposed deal was illegal, which it was.  Then he said if you tried to get around it by breaking it up into seperate deals, he and the league will not allow that in light of what they tried to do in the first deal.  The problem is mainly in the original negotiated deal that involves Doc with players, everyone knew about it, there were not any effort to be discreet or any attempt to separate the negotiations.

    I think he's right in some ways...NBA teams have skirted the rules for a long time but he's a wannabe media darling with his casual comments regarding the trade on a radio show. It's not appropriate for a commish to do that kinda crap. That needs to be dealt on a 'when it happens' basis or across the table from the parties involved. By yapping like a know-it-all nosey neighbor on the radio he adds his own market force to the marketplace which is just plain arrogence, and actually he should be the one cited.

    You want to take odds on where KG will play next year.  By the way I would rather have KG than Doc.  KG will be on the Clippers unless the league steps in.

    I would not claim to know anything but from some of the reports, the league has said that they will not "budge" on any further deal that would send KG to the Clippers.  If that is true, the league has already stepped in.
