All I want for Christmas is a three-way trade?
You might be shuddering in your Celts jersey Emma, but not me. Peace and calm? That's what I want at a dentist's office, not from a sports league. The flurry of activity that ended the NFL lockout was nothing compared to this ongoing NBA mess, and yours truly is adoring every chaotic minute. Short of any actual dribbling, this stuff couldn't be more fun.
David Stern finds himself in the wildly untenable, inherently contradictory position of running the entire league while simultaneously managing a single team in it. Chris Paul is mad enough about the veto of his escape from New Orleans to talk about suing the association—an affront for which Paul will apparently be banished to the Clippers. Dwight Howard is suddenly in play, then he's out again. The Nuggets signed Nene, thrilling Denver fans along with admirers of alliteration everywhere.
As you noted, Emma, LA's Lamar Odom was sent to the Mavericks—a move that not only improves the Mavs' chances of repeating as champs, but also means that reality TV fans get one season of "Khloe Does Dallas," complete with another splashy Kardasian divorce as a finale. Good times.
And you, Patrick? Emma's an exception, right? Wouldn't you say that all this chaos for players and owners means much more fun for fans?
