Just when it looked like Chris Paul was headed to Los Angeles, David Stern blocked the trade, sending CP3 back to New Orleans. Did he do the right thing?
Should David Stern have blocked the Chris Paul trade?

David Stern’s one block > all blocks by NBA players last season.
David “Dikembe” Stern.
Who the he!! voted yes? Does Sternbot visit this site?
Now i’m a Laker fan and i would have not wanted to see Odom and Pau get swapped for CP3. I still don’t think Stern should have blocked the trade. All the teams are responsible for their actions. I also feel bad for Hornets, because now they might not get any value for CP3 when he becomes a free agent.
@Word to Yesse, agree 100%
I also gotta say, anyone who voted yes on this is clearly a Laker hater and is being clouded by that. This trade does not make LA better, but for some reason when people see a shiny object in someone else’s hand, they can’t take it.
obviously there are trades that no one wants to see happen, but ususally you just have to face reality that it happened. . you don’t go and block it
If he blocks this next trade then he can go @*$k himself.
this trade doesnt make LA better? wtf are you smoking?one of the top 3 pgs in the league was coming to your team and i doesnt make a team better? wow. this deal didnt make NO any better thats why they blocked it, it would kept NO right outside the playoffs stuck in mediocrity with no cap room or draft picks, with players with bloated contracts the wrong side of 30.
If LA wasn’t taking back Okafor, no it doesn’t make them better. It makes them susceptible to season ruining injuries at 3 different positions.
