Default Disgruntled/pissed POPs over Gasol trade?

Did any of you happen to read this? Pop from the spurs thought the trade was unfair and wished a trade panel would be introduced to stop trades like the one the lakers pulled off.

He makes it sound like a gun was put to the grizz's head.. They wanted expiring contracts to rebuild. We got the present of a lifetime.. and to my knowledge the largest expiring contract this season in KWAME for the trade... and tossed in some meat..

Funny and insulting as all hell. We are gonna be in the luxury tax regardless with the gasol trade. Man I hope we kick The spurs ass if we meet them just to see his scowling face go home in pain.

====================

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3239478

Grizzlies head coach Marc Iavaroni has heard the critics lambasting Memphis' management for the Pau Gasol trade to the Lakers, most notably the strong words from San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. He just chooses to ignore them.

"[Popovich is] a great coach and they do a good job there," Iavaroni told the Memphis Commercial Appeal. "I don't read into anyone else's comments. That's just the nature of the league. People have a right to their opinion. We're just taking care of our best interests."

Popovich slammed Memphis for a trade that many around the NBA thought favored the Lakers.

"What they did in Memphis is beyond comprehension," Popovich told SI.com. "There should be a trade committee that can scratch all trades that make no sense. I just wish I had been on a trade committee that oversees NBA trades. I would have voted no to the LA trade."

In the deal, Memphis acquired Kwame Brown and his expiring $9 million contract, rookie Javaris Crittenton, the rights to Marc Gasol and first-round picks in 2008 and 2010.

As a result of the trade, the Grizzlies could have as much as $17 million available under the salary cap that could help them sign free agents over the summer."

I actually did read this on RealGM. I actually have to agree with Pop on the whole trade committee idea thing.. We might have a GM here and there aka McHale trying to make the C's better by giving away a star for 7 players thinking he got the better of the deal.

I would be for this idea.

I believe the NBA commish can step in if he believes there is some kind of fraud/collusion with a trade.

The Lakers got lucky with this trade no doubt, but they had what MEM wanted...cap relief in Kwames and McKies expiring contracts and 2 first round picks and 2 young players(1 of which was a first round pick himself). How does this trade make no sense??? They purge payroll get extra 1st round picks and 2 young players so they can rebuild.

Pop is just jealous, just like all the other NBA teams where when SA had that horrible season and ended up with Duncan. Every team gets a little lucky building their teams.

exactly... that's why you can't have one... the CBA is set up in a way that makes trades dificult to pull of in the first place, having a commitee to oversee the process is just more hoops that would make it rough if notimpossible to pull have the big trade...
if the salaries match and the trade is within the guidlines of the CBA then what business is it of anyones what the talent level being traded is? if pops had his way then teams could only trade superstar for super star...
and finally funny how pops wasn't spouting off when garnett left the west and headed east... it's only when a team that's a contender in his conference gets the better end of the trade he has something to say....

Things will never get done and delay by GMs mafia if there were such. Lots of drive-by-shotdown trading will occur.

of course he would vote no. His team's run is at stake. There have been much worse trades in the past I dont know why this one is so looked at. Maybe it's because we are the lakers and people don't want us succeeding.

It's a probably a sign of FEAR in pop-an-itch. If Tony Parker is healthy, I think he would'nt fear much or had he still have his twin towes.

Must be nice to pick up Stoudamire because his contract was bought out. Especially when Parker is out on injury, didn't that also happen in the past with Finley? Should their be a committe that oversees buyouts of contrcts? Pop quit crying cause you know you will have to deal with the Lakers down the road.
