Do you think the NBA was wrong in rejecting Chris Paul's trade to the Lakers?

Josh Graham I think the league was wrong in nixing the trade. The building of superteams is something the NBA should have addressed before the lockout ended. David Stern might as well create a format for just eight teams because that's all that will be relevant in a few years.

Darryl Flight Johnson So the NBA can accept LeBron James and Chris Bosh signing with the Heat, but it won't let Paul go to the Lakers? That doesn't make sense.

Chris Daniel The Hornets are owned by the NBA. That means that the New Orleans G.M. consulted the team's owner, the NBA, for approval of the proposed trade and the owner denied approval. How hard is that to understand? Lakers fans are just mad because they were denied a shot at another cheap, effortless, young dynasty.

Mike Eaton I think the NBA is stepping out of line on this. I don't see how all teams involved wouldn't benefit. It's not like the Lakers are not giving up any talent. They would have lost both Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol, two awesome big men. This proves the league is just out of control.
