So now it’s the Clippers turn…
With Dell Demps pushed to the side of the plate like some misbegotten and unwanted cauliflower, NBA officials are demanding the world from the Los Angeles Clippers in their efforts to pry Chris Paul from their cold, grasping claws Hornets. Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu, Eric Bledsoe and Minnesota’s unprotected 2012 first-round draft pick.
The Clippers are balking at giving up both Gordon and Minnesota’s first round draft pick. I mean… we’re talking the T-Wolves here: that’s likely to be one helluva pick in the best draft we’ve had in years.
The thing is, Stern really can’t get less – otherwise he’s open to fire after he nixed the Lakers/Houston/NOLA deal.
It’s amazing how even post the lockout, the mess was minimal. And then David Stern at the behest of Dan Gilbert & co. create the biggest mess we’ve seen in the NBA since Tim Donaghy.
