Nobody said a word when the Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett (he was a top five player easily then) and Ray Allen (who was still at the top of his game). In fact, people cheered the move. To your point that, "people don't want the ending to movies they know the ending" comment; I disagree, because that same year, the Celtics won the finals and was rated one of the highest ever.

When LeBron and Bosh went to the Heat, everyone cheered it (boo'd LeBron, but cheered the 'super team').

When the Lakers get close to acquiring a superstar like CP3 to play with Kobe and Bynum, then it's "unbalanced."

That's my problem with the whole situation. It's not like the Lakers were giving up scrubs; they were giving up a starting PF and SF. One is considered an elite player while the other is considered an All-Star player.

I have a feeling the trade will get done, though. There has always been a history of ESPN pressuring the NBA into doing something. I was surprised to see all the hate from ESPN talking heads on this, so I expect the league to change it's decision. The deal might get updated a little, so it's not the same trade anymore, but I think it'll be about the same trade.
The Celtics did not trade for KG and Ray Allen... Everyone had a fair shot at acquiring them in the free agent market by offering the best deal with the best chance of winning... In the end Boston gave them the best deal with the best chance of winning... They did not leverage small market teams for their superstars... KG and Ray had no teams... The only thing that brings in money for small market teams are their star players... They arent like Boston, NY and LA who will make money regardless of the team's records... On top of that those players were no longer superstars and marketable figures they were at the end of their careers

And nobody cheered the LEbron to the Heat thing... WTF are you talking about?? That was the most scrutinized signing in recent memory... That was one of the reasons behind the lockout... It's outrageous to have superstars collectively team up in the big market cities... Owners of small market cities no they have no chance of getting TV play or marketing their team without a star... Bottom line you don't want stars to flock to major markets... You want stars collectively all over the country otherwise why have 30 teams when 8 of your 10 superstars on 3 teams...

league ruined let's be real, dream teams take L's, look @ Philly ....
Your talking basketball sense... This has nothing to do with what happens on the court... It is about money... Not basketball... Teams need to be able to make money... You cannot make money without a marketable figure unless you are a major market team... So small market teams need a star to market... U can't allow these stars to continue this trend of running to the big apple, hollywood, south beach just to be in the limelight... It k!lls the small market which makes up more than 60% of the NBA

its going down

theres a new deal: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and a 2012 draft pick would still be sent by the Rockets to the Hornets as part of the deal.

Most recent construction of CP3 trade, sources say, does indeed still send Odom to NOH. Hornets want him as much as Martin/Scola, even ...

ESPNSteinLine Marc Stein
Even though Hornets know Odom doesn't want to leave LA. Their preference is keeping him but sense is they'll trade him on if they have to

Lots of speculation that Emeka Okafor is in the new CP3 deal. Source says he is not part of trade.

The Celtics did trade for KG and Ray Allen..
The gist of it was

Al Jefferson & fillers for KG
Jeff Green (after Boston tanked and failed to get a top 2 pick in draft w/ Oden & Durant) for Ray Allen

Stern just commented on the deal. Basically told the whole league to stop low-balling the Hornets or Paul is going nowhere.

Not sure how I feel about that.
low balling.. really the lakers are giving up to much.. Pau Gasol and Chris Paul could be a sign and trade... Even swap.. they giving up Lamar was well.... if you ask me they giving up more than they getting.. CP3 is a great point guard and we need him but we are giving up a lot already...

Is the combination of Wade, Bron and Bosh not better than Kobe, CP3 and D12?

I mean you have the best SG, best SF and top 5 PF against the second best SG, arguably (due to injury) best PG and best C.... seems pretty even to me.
Your lying.
Everyone know that C, SG,PG> PF,SF,SG.
