I need to learn not to be optimistic about these kinda things. I bet the trade was so awesome that Stern and the Nba said it would not be allowed because it would take media attention away form the Heat and give them real competition in the east.

It certainly was a dirty trade if the people at RoF are accurate....

Okay:

First – THESE ARE MY SOURCES.

Although James’ people provided similar data. Don’t tag James with questions about these. He’s going to “show his cards” when he feels comfortable for the sake of his people.

There has been so much speculation this week (here and in the national media) that I’m not worried about accidentally revealing the identity of my contacts.

STEP 3

George Schinn contacted the Bobcats about the possibility of a CP3 deal but wanted big money more than player-for-player deals. The Dampier deal was partially made with this in mind. The actual deal, as I heard it was this:

Dampier, DJ, Nazr, Gerald Henderson, a futre first rounder (the year was still being negotiated) and additional cash considerations. Najera was thrown onto the pile and he was never supposed to wear a Bobcats uniform anyway.

For this, Charlotte would receive Chris Paul and Emeka Okafor would return.

STEP 4:

This has its roots going back WAY before LeDouche James skipped out on Cleveland. The very beginnings of it go back all the way to last November.

This is also where we would lose Crash.

The trade involved the Nuggets. CP3 wanted to be teamed up with Carmelo Anthony. Once he heard the rumors about Bosh/James etc. he made it clear he didn’t want to be playing in NY, NJ or any other place where those guys might wind up. My PERSONAL OPINION is that it’s ego-based. He wants to prove that if he were on a team with what he felt was the right people, nobody – not even Lebron/Wade/Bosh would be able to keep them from winning the title.

Nuggets give up – Carmelo Anthony a conditional future first rounder and a 2nd rounder.

Charlotte trades Diaw and Crash.

It makes us MONSTERS (MonSTARS?) instantly in the Eastern Conference and immediate title contenders.

Once again – James’ is a bit different from mine and these deals ARE NOT OFFICIALLY DEAD YET.

So now you know.

BTW – I would have gotten this done quicker but SOMEONE cough cough Andrew coufh kept posting pics and every time a new one showed up, my screen would jump to it and I’d lose my place! (true story lol)

Hopefully y’all at least understand why I went out of my mind with excitement over all of this.

My sources can beat up your sources

FWIW even though I'm a die-hard Lakers fan and a lot of people in the basketball board don't enjoy what I have to say I wanted these monster deals to go down. It would have been great for the city of Charlotte and it's economy, and I would have gladly dropped money on season tickets to go watch CP3, Melo and Jax for 41+ games....

Hearing that it is not officially dead is nice, but there's virtually no chance this happens if it hasn't already.

Whats strange is you would think CP would be all for this. You would think you would be hearing him saying I'm never playing in NO anymore trade me now etc etc etc....

I can tell you exactly why the talks broke down. They were trying to get Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.

You think Stern got involved or you think it was just too much to try and obtain??
