Cuban Speaks And He Has A Point...But

So the Hornets pulled off a trade today sending reserve shooting guard Marcus Thornton with suspect defense for Monty Williams' liking to Sacramento for Carl Landry and cash. Now we're just taking a stab at this but maybe it's because of the cash that has Cuban saying this...

“That’s just wrong. That’s just wrong. That’s just absolutely, positively wrong,’” Cuban said. “I’ll probably go against the grain from everybody else, but that is so far wrong that it’s not even close.

“There’s so few teams in the league that can afford to do that and yet we’re allowing a team that’s owned by the league to do that?”

“I don’t need to be competing economically with the league and myself,” Cuban said.

Now in the event you've been under a rock, the Hornets are owned by the NBA because they have not been able to find a buyer for the team that is willing to keep the team in the Big Easy.

While Cuban's comments have value you also have to understand that just because a team,-for the meantime- is owned by the league should not allow them to operate as any other team when it comes to wheeling and dealing. At the end of the day they are in it to win it. Maybe it's because they are in the same division as Cuban's Mavericks and how this trade really fills a need in the forecourt and on defense. All were saying is Cuban has nothing to say about how the Hornets have been without their star center Emeka Okafor the past 10 games and how that has effected the Hornets defense the last 10 games or so.
