Mark Cuban criticized the NBA for allowing the league-owned New Orleans Hornets to trade superstar point guard Chris Paul over the offseason to the Los Angeles Clippers.

NBA commissioner David Stern stepped in and vetoed a three-team trade that had the Los Angeles Lakers shipping Lamar Odom to the Horntes and Pau Gasol to the Houston Rockets. In return, New Orleans was trading Paul to the Lakers, and the Hornets would received Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Goran Dragic and a first-round draft pick from the Rockets.

Most criticis thought the deal was a win, win, win for the Lakers, Hornets and Rockets. But Stern thought otherwise, and put the brakes on the proceedings.
