Ecce- His rights were traded by Orlando on draft day. He never played for them. By your account, I guess Kobe Bryant was "dumped" by one team before he became a Laker. His domestic abuse incident occurred while he was at Virginia before he transferred to Fresno St. That was at least 5 years ago and I do not know of any incidents since. It is not a "dark day in the history of the New Orleans Hornets." That is a little dramatic. Time will tell if it was a good or a bad trade.

yep, that's what I was hoping to hear Stern say. You guys can try to spin this one anyway you want, but in my mind this is a dark day in New Orleans Hornets history.
Orlando traded this guy for some cash and a case of beer.
Dallas threw him in as an afterthought in the Juwan Howard deal.
Washington straight up jacked us - thanks Bob Bass.
And if you can't get good players past #7, primetime, I want you to realize that Orlando drafted this great up and coming player at #13.
The Wizards will probably pick Stoudmire or Rush with our pick while we look on holding our bag of fool's gold.
