You just can't make these things up. Chris Paul is traded. No, Chris Paul is not traded. The owners blocked it. No, the owners didn't block it. This is the best gif I've seen about the trade, or lack thereof, courtesy of @JustinDoubleday on Twitter.
Dwight Howard is having cloak and dagger meetings with the Nets and Orlando is filing tampering charges. Cue the Prokhorov jokes (Just scan Twitter - You'll find a bunch more):
"I am happy to announce Prokhorov has just offered the Magic, Brooke Lopez and a complete DVD set of the Sopranos for Dwight Howard" -TheProkhorov
"I'm confused, why is Dwight requesting a trade to the NETS? Is Prokhorov holding his newest baby mom or Ed Hardy T shirt hostage?" -OfficiallyZay
""In Russia, trade vetoes you!" - Prokhorov, in glee as he maniacally laughs about impending trade for D12" -markentel
