One of the funniest things about the baffling decision by NBA commissioner and future "Spy Kids" villain David Stern to veto the Chris Paul trade is that it will almost certainly HURT the competitive balance of the NBA. The New Orleans Hornets are now bound to end up getting either A) less than what the Lakers and Rockets were willing to give up, or B) nothing at all, with Paul walking at the end of the year. That Stern failed to see the eventual futility of that veto is perhaps the single most damning thing about his recent job performance, and that's saying a LOT.
Casual NBA fans (Cavs owner Dan Gilbert apparently among them) assumed that the new collective bargaining agreement struck between the NBA and its players was supposed to end this whole run of players forcing their teams to trade them to other, cooler teams. We American sports fans don't like it very much when players pull this sort of thing. It somehow offends our sense of loyalty, despite the fact...

A whirlwind of nonactivity Monday concluded with the Los Angeles Clippers breaking off a deal to acquire Chris Paul and the Orlando Magic affirming their efforts to keep Dwight Howard.
The Celtics have been linked to Chris Paul and appeared to be on the verge of landing David West. But neither deal came to fruition, which is due in large part to them being over the salary cap. The Boston Globe's Gary Washburn dropped by NESN Daily to discuss the Celtics' offseason and why it's been so difficult to make the big splash they have seemingly tried to make...
I love the confidence that these reporters have in our inability to win games. Clippers are apparently trading "the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft" for Chris Paul. http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/L...is-Paul-121111
It is also curious since the Clippers have already traded rights to this pick to the Thunder who traded it to the Celtics. Granted, it is the "least...
The latest twist in the never-ending Chris Paul trade saga is that the Clippers are now in a better position to swap for the superstar point guard, thanks to the Chauncey Billups acquisition. Per CBS Sports: “By claiming Billups for about $2 million, the Clippers were able to solve the dilemma of not having another point guard on the roster — Mo Williams likely slides into the...
Chris Paul may be headed to Los Angeles as part of a new proposed trade.
WESTWEGO, LA. (AP) - While Chris Paul darted around a basketball court in a black Hornets practice uniform, the only NBA team for which he has played resumed trade talks for the All-Star guard, opening discussions with anyone who is interested."We're talking about everything.

What a past couple of days for the NBA, eh fans?
We have rumors flying about just about every single team in the league, we have David Stern showing us why he is going to win the Dictator Of the Year award, and we have a lot of awkwardness inside NBA training camps (more specifically the Lakers).
You can be assured I am on top of things, and I have a few more juicy rumors and details...
New Orleans general manager Dell Demps says he has been given
autonomy to make another trade for All-Star guard Chris Paul.
NBA commissioner David Stern attempted Friday to defuse a storm of
criticism over the league's shocking veto of a trade that would
have sent star point guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers.
What should I do? Well, just keep doing you and you’ll be the villain. That’s the case with the five guys that are going to be featured in this post this morning. In order to be fair, I guess you can say that some of these guys don’t have bad intentions, but villains they are, nonetheless. (That was me getting my Yoda on)
So what exactly is a Villain in professional sports...
