The Howard trade, in all sincerity how does the GM of Orlando stand up in a press conference and say we just traded the best young big man in the game, plus Jason Richardson, Christ Duhon, Earl Clark and got this: Yes I know they also got five protected draft choices, http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...akers-magic-trade.ap/index.html?sct=nba_t2_a4 And where is Howard Stern? He voided the Chris Paul trade, well this was Christmas in LA and coal in Orlando's stockings. Let's face it the league should just pare down to six teams. Miami, LA Lakers, Two in NYC, Boston, and Chicago. Those are apparently the only places Stern is interested in having stars play or competitive teams, Oh, and OK city, you better win next season, because Westbrook will soon whine like Howard or Lebron until he can buy himself a title in a "big Market". And what are the odds that a big name free agent will want to stay in or go to an Ok city? San Antonio, Memphis or Detroit. The league has become a joke, and Stern has left us this parting gift, before his retirement, a league run by it's young petulant stars.
