What a crazy night - CP3 traded/not traded




First, it was reported that CP3 was traded for Gasol and Odom, and the Hornets would flip Gasol to the Rockets for Scola, Kevin Martin, Dragic and the Knicks 1st rounder. That was about two hours after the Lakers changed their minds and reneged on an agreement to trade Bynum and Odom for Paul

About an hour later, the deal was killed by the NBA commissioner ( the Hornets are under league ownership ).

In my opinion, it serves the Lakers right. Their greed got in the way, they should have kept the original deal of trading Bynum and Odom . Gasol and Odom for CP3 isn't a terrible trade, but it wasn't fair value. I guess many owners were worried that the Lakers would ALSO get Howard for Bynum, and demanded to kill the deal.

After last year's playoff debacle and this trade fiasco the Lakers are in a tough spot.Their team chemistry was questionable before, and it should be much worse now. They must make a trade, because they have some players on their roster who feel betrayed and unappreciated
