They had much better offers on the table, Scola, Martin and Odom is hardly enough for Paul.

What were they?

The Dubs were offering Curry, Klay Thompson and someone else or picks, can't remember.

Boston was offering a package around Rondo with Jeff Green and two first round picks.

Clips were offering DeAndre Jordan, a first round pick and someone else, but Gordon was the sticking point.

I read that the Dubs backed out because they didn't want to part ways with Curry. The Clippers also didn't want to include Jordan or Gordon.

Boston's deal sounds fair

This is fun to watch. Now let's put Stern in control of the BCS.

Both teams backed out because Paul didn't want to sign an extension. Dubs weren't going to include Curry if Paul wasn't staying, and quite frankly I don't blame them.

Rondo is average without talent around him and Jeff Green is average period. I dont see how any of those trades were better?

That was all speculation. I don't think the Celtics were offering that package for an unsigned Paul.

I also don't think it's in the GM's best interest to unload all of NO talent for scraps if he wants to keep his job or ever work again in the NBA. I think he took the best deal on the table and the owners were aprehensive because it was the Lakers getting yet another young superstar not because NO didn't get enough in return. Odom has a great contract, Scola is a very good player, and Martin is a great scorer. This was a deal to make NO better in the long.
Paul leaves now or later. The owners just don't want the Lakers to unload salary cap space while still getting Paul. They want to make sure the lakers have to pay them more with the luxury tax.

I hadnt seen the other better offers. Were there real ones or just the BS rumors that are out there?

The Hornets rejected the Celtics offer, right? smh

Seriously?

Rondo >>>>>>>>>>>>> Martin

Scola and Odom are ALSO average. I'd rather have two first round picks and Jeff Green.

Whatever's been going through ESPN is what I've been seeing, and they looked a whole lot better than the Laker/Rox trade.
