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.

Adios, win column. Hello, Superstolens!
UPDATE: Chandler failed his physical and returned to the Hornets. Management was overjoyed.
