Um...what...?

Ok, time out.

So the Lakers negotiating for Chris Paul and sending viable assets to New Orleans is WRONG...but the Celtics shipping the corpse of Jermaine O'Neal for David West is FAIR? WHAT THE HELL????

Wow, the Celtics would make out like bandits if they pulled this one off. And yes, it is completely unfair if this trade goes through and the Lakers one doesn't. No two ways about it.

The NBA needs to find a buyer for this freakin' team. Or the controversy will only get worse. (Incidentally, trading away their valuable assets will make it harder to find a buyer for this freakin' team).

It is a sign and trade, not a straight trade, that is the difference. West is a free agent, so it is getting something rather than nothing. Also, West is coming off a blown out ACL.

And now the Boston talks mysteriously collapsed. So now David West is a Pacer:


    The Indiana Pacers agreed on a two-year, $20 million deal with free-agent forward David West.

    The Hornets had been in discussions to send West to Boston in a sign-and-trade deal but NBA.com reported Sunday that those talks ended, which opened the door for Indiana to land West.

The reason for Boston not closing this deal is probably nothing out of the ordinary. But now the NBA's created an environment where it's perfectly reasonable to assume it's a damn conspiracy.

Well, conspiracy or no, I'll take it. Tyler needs a little more time and training before he's ready to take over as a full-time starter. David West can come in and contribute right away and help us win, especially if his injuries are behind him.

I finally found a sliver of time to watch these. Most of them were mildy enjoyable, but what was the point of "Announcers?"
