But it was good for the smaller markets.

Dan Gilbert was the main guy crying. Then he puts together Kyrie, LeBron and Love?? How is it not fair? Dwight, old Kobe and CP3. And??  Golden State is not a large market. I say they put together a pretty good team without crying about the CP3 trade. But back to Dan Gilbert. If it was about CP3 going to a large market then why didn't he cry when he went to the Clippers a few weeks later??

Biggest what if in NBA history Paul Kobe Bynum lose to mavs
Beat heat getting Kobe 6

Kobe would of had three good years left

 

Kobe was playing on 2 bad ankles.

 

Phil had cancer.  Bad mojo.

 

That, and blowing huge Game 1 lead to Mavs . . .

We were set to use the trade exception from the CP3 deal (approx 11 million) to trade 2 first round picks for Paul Millsap as well.  The picks we eventually ended up using to trade for Nash.  When the deal fell through we tried attaching the picks to Barnes and Blake but the whole point was that Utah didn't want to take back any salary so they declined.  Just something to keep in mind.  Whether we could have beaten the Heat is anyone's guess but the follow up Millsap trade seems to have been lost in the sands of time haha.

So, I wasted time listening to Ramona Shelburne discussing this on an LA radio station.

 

She didn't fully address the Odom aspect, but instead emphasized that the league wanted Bynum in New Orleans, as this would make them more attractive for sale.

 

(Stern said nothing about Bynum).

 

Also, I was pretty certain that the reason the Lakers wanted to keep Bynum was so they could flip him in a deal for Dwight, which is what made him "untouchable" in a potential deal for CP3.  Ramona simply stated that Bynum was "close to" untouchable at that point.
