Spears QFTT : "The way it looks now, the Hornets will have traded their franchise point guard (Paul) for a player who’s leaving (Kaman), a guard who’s played only two games and also could leave in the summer (Eric Gordon), underachieving forward Al-Farouq Aminu and a 2012 first-round pick that might not end up in the lottery. Imagine how different it would be if NBA commissioner David Stern hadn’t vetoed a trade that would have given the Hornets guard Kevin Martin, forward Luis Scola, forward Lamar Odom and guard Goran Dragic." There is a saying in Turkish that suits this situation, God doesn't have a stick but he can hurt you in other ways. Thank you God and f you David "Basketball Reasons" Stern. Way to kill that franchise

The Minnesota Timberwolves offered to trade Michael Beasley to the Los Angeles Lakers for a first-round draft pick, but the Lakers turned them down, according to a league source. While Beasley, a talented and athletic small forward, would fill one of the Lakers’ greatest needs, the Lakers rejected the offer because they do not want to add to their luxury tax bill, according to the source.

He’s the NBA’s new mystery man, a real Sidd Finch of the basketball world. He’s also maybe the guy who made you a scotch and soda the last time you were in Los Angeles, and almost definitely the guy who sells your mom car insurance. He is also probably the guy who can get you some action on the ponies the next time you’re in Hollywood, if you’re looking to throw down some cash. Just let Chaz know and he’s got your back. Only cash though. Trey Kirby on the Lakers' mystery scout

[T]here were other motives behind Bryant’s words, and people familiar with how things have been running within the Lakers organization believe it’s about time somebody unleashed those words and the motives behind them.... The Lakers’ front office is an uncommunicative, rudderless fiasco, and the unrest and paranoia that have been festering for years threaten to derail the team’s plans to ride Bryant to his sixth NBA title while they still can. And much of it can be traced to the growing influence of executive vice president Jim Buss, the owner’s bon vivant son, who has helped transform a great franchise into a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops.... "The other GMs know what's going on," said one of the people familiar with the Lakers' chaos. "Jim has no relationships with other GMs, and they also know they're going to be able to swoop in there and do things [in trades]. This is a real critical time. The chances of Dwight Howard coming in there are slim and none at this point." Ken Berger of CBS Sports, with a must-read report on the state of the Lakers' front office

"I guess my point here is this: If you're the Lakers, why not sign Gilbert Arenas? They worked him out a few days ago, to a chorus of bloggers (correctly) pointing out that he's hopelessly past his prime and not an obvious fit for the team. And I have no idea whether the super-secret European blood-spinning procedure he recently underwent has put the zest back in his knees, or if he's any different from the guy who coughed up that disastrous season for the Magic last year, and I'd say that the odds he'd actually help the Lakers are probably around 20 percent. But you know what? The current 'dignified wilting ex-champions' act of sitting still and making vague overtures toward Dwight Howard isn't going to help, either. Why not at least roll the dice and write your name on the season in letters big enough to see?" Brian Phillips, Grantland.com "Lake Show Entropy"
