I cared at the time. Stern isn't in charge anymore and Mitch isn't our GM. This was years ago! We have two very solid prospects and the 2nd pick in the NBA Draft. It's done and is completely irrelevant at this moment in time.
What do you mean who cares? If you're a Lakers fan you absolutely care about an event that resulted in us being the bottom feeder of the mother [expletive]ing west.
Looking back, the veto made no sense from a business standpoint. Was making the Clippers relevant worth throwing away a Kobe vs LeBron finals series much like we are seeing Bron vs Curry right now? On top of that, CP3 and Kobe could potentially have been the greatest backcourt in the history of the game even if it was only for 3-4 years. The benefits of allowing the trade far outweighed the benefits, if there were any, of vetoing the trade.
