re: UPDATE: Dwight Howard Has Requested A Trade From The Magic

I'm going to have to root against this otherwise Deron might want to stay in NJ which would mean this Mavericks rebuild could be an epic fail.

Not the same. The Paul trade was nixed because Stern (and I don't agree with him) deemed it to be grossly unfair and against the best interests of basketball, not because Paul dictated where he wanted to go. Did Paul even dictate where he wanted to go? That's unclear. Anyway, it was nixed because it was unfair.

That's not true. The commissioner can veto any trade that he deems is against the best interests of basketball.

I wonder if we'll ever see idunkonyou again. Or maybe he'll convert to a Nets fan.

re: UPDATE: Dwight Howard Has Requested A Trade From The Magic

So, do Nets have 2 picks in 2012 or is it just 2 future picks in general?

Outside of this Chris Paul situation when was the last time Stern vetoed a trade? Stern in a sense owns the Hornets so he could nix s trade if he wants to.

Well then there is no rush to do that deal. I would hold out and try to see what we can get out of the Clippers... Jordan + Minny 1st + Clipper 1st > Nets offer.

re: UPDATE: Dwight Howard Has Requested A Trade From The Magic

Never, which is one reason I think it's unlikely that he would nix a Howard trade if one were to go through. It's almost impossible to argue that a small market team (until next year, anyway) with no history like the Nets getting Howard would have the same effect on the NBA as a team with a history of getting whatever it wants like the Lakers would in getting Chris Paul.

That's true, but it takes two to tango. If Howard makes it known he wants to be a Net and won't re-sign with the Clippers, they have no incentive to do that trade.

re: UPDATE: Dwight Howard Has Requested A Trade From The Magic

I'm hoping that Dwight goes to LAC as well. Dwight + Griffin is much more entertaining than Dwight + Deron Williams and scrubs.

re: UPDATE: Dwight Howard Has Requested A Trade From The Magic

In one of the deepest drafts in recent memory, this is Orlando's best shot at starting over. Lopez is a decent player, the picks should yield something good.

Yeah for a dunk contest maybe. You still need someone to pass you the ball, where Clippers guards are "suspect" at doing that. Deron is better than any guard on the Clips by a longshot. I think Deron and Howard would be a nasty combo with the nets. Those 2 alone is enought to get you a playoff spot.
