And lest we not forget the league position on CP3!  Folks forget he was rumored to LA but to the Lakers and the league said they didn’t want a compilation of free agent talent in major markets....but then okayed his deal to the Clippers.....

Not sure if the Unibrow’s destination is LA or not but damn, if hit Boston.....that would be real interesting......

Nah...87. The Lakers had nothing to do with that.  The deal was actually done.  Signed seal and delivered.  David Stern screwed that up.

New Orleans needs to follow San Antonio's example in dealing with Leonard. Don't allow the Lakers to force their hand.

I swear to God I can't understand some of you and all this irrational thinking. That seem to be based on solely nothing but Envy of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers aren't doing anything. Players are making choices to go to teams where they feel can better their careers. And just what do you think is going to happen to the Pelicans by making that move? At the end of the day the New Orleans Pelicans is very last on the totem pole in value and profitability in the NBA and, will more than likely always be there as long as they are in New Orleans. Every Superstar that has came there has done the same thing. They have never been able to attract a superstar willingly to that City for their basketball career. The truth of the matter Tom Benson made a mistake when he bought the team.

I swear to God I can't understand some of you and all this irrational thinking. That seem to be based on sold in nothing but Envy of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers are doing anything. Players are making choices to go two teams where they feel can better their careers. And just what do you think is going to happen to the Pelicans by making that move? At the end of the day the New Orleans Pelicans is very last on a totem pole in value and profitability in the NBA and, will more than likely always be there as long as there are in New Orleans.

Lakers have a history of building dynasties on the backs of smaller market teams. Don't be surprised if they get hit with tampering charges again.

Hmm...now it's being reported that AD told Del Demp that he wasn't going to resign early on in the season.
