Dan Gilbert Persuades Stern to Shut Down CP3-Lakers Trade?
The Los Angeles Lakers, the Houston Rockets & the (League owned) New Orleans Hornets all agreed on a deal Thursday afternoon that would send PG Chris Paul to the Lakers; SF/PF Lamar Odom, PF Luis Scola, SG Kevin Martin & C Goran Dragic to the Hornets; and the Rockets would receive PF Pau Gasol.
This trade was almost complete and the players were ready to switch teams. And then hours later, everyone found out that NBA Commissioner David Stern had prevented the deal from going through. David Stern; Really, Bro?Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert played a significant role in the Dikembe MutumBro-like move by the NBA. Gilbert sent a letter to Stern asking for the "29 owners" to vote on the deal. Gilbert wrote:
" It would be a travesty to allow the Lakers to acquire Chris Paul in the apparent trade being discussed...the vast majority of owners feel the same way that I do. "
As a fellow TeBro puts it, "STFU Dan Gilbert." "Really, Bro?" will not be asked to Dan Gilbert. Well, because...he's just not a BRO. Yes, the Los TeBros just stated that Dan Gilbert is NOT a BRO.
No wonder LeBron left...
