The NBA: Where Belt-Tightening Happens, Part 2

ESPN is reporting that the New Orleans Hornets have indeed pulled the trigger on the Tyson Chandler trade/salary dump, effectively ending their chances at winning a title this year.

Pissed-off Hornets fans vent (thanks, TrueHoop).

Yes, Chandler has underachieved and yes, he's overpaid but I can't help but wonder if this desperation move will backfire on the Hornets and cost them CP3 at some point in the not-too-distant future.

David Stern's reaction to the league-wide mess? His own Ponzi Scheme, of course.

Check out my initial belt-tightening post here.

Adios, win column. Hello, Superstolens!

UPDATE: Chandler failed his physical and returned to the Hornets. Management was overjoyed.
