    Cancel? Seems that Clippers never agreed to that asking price by Stern.

    It looked like they had a deal but the nba wanted more, just like the Houston situation.

    So, that's three trades attempts.

    Instead of CP3, maybe it should be

    CP3P'Od

    Stern is hellbent on keeping Paul in New Orleans.

    Drunk with power and blinded by conflicts of interest, he's ruining the season.

    Who has cap space to sign him if/when he becomes a FA?

    I know Sacramento can, Hornets have his bird rights, am I missing someone?

    Also, if those are the only two teams with enough money for a max, does he get desperate and sign for the MLE in NY?

    The clippers are better off without Paul. They are a young team, and they need to grow together.

    Blake isn't ready to be a one man army that he would have to be to take him and paul to the finals.

    a few teams do, we could fairly easily have room for 2 max FA's next year.

    I hope CP3 tanks the hell out of NO and reduces the franchise's value to absolute ****.

    **** you David Stern.

    Try selling the team now.
