When the Schrempf hits the fan in the NBA, Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski gets the best quotes and tidbits. As such, you'll want to read an epic rant from an anonymous league executive who was engaged in talks for Chris Paul before the New Orleans Hornets agreed to trade the All-Star to the L.A. Lakers and David Stern subsequently vetoed the deal. A snip is below the jump.
"We were all told by the league he was a trade-able player, and now they're saying that Dell doesn't have the authority to make the trade?" said an NBA executive who had periodic talks with New Orleans throughout the process. "Now, they're saying that Dell is an idiot, that he can't do it his job. [Expletive] this whole thing. David's drunk on power, and he doesn't give a [expletive] about the players, and he doesn't give a [expletive] about the hundreds of hours the teams put into make that deal.
Seriously, go read the whole thing if you missed it on Thursday night.
