are u legit slow? i don’t really think nba should veto the signing lmao .. i was being facetious on a count of stern blocking a trade in the past for a similar reason based on a technicality. whether or not stern was in his legal right is not the point here .. the principle behind it is.
I never argued about the principle.
The Lakers got fucked. I never argued against it. But Stern had every right to fuck them. If Stern wasn't in that position as owner, the trade would have went through and Stern wouldn't have been able to do anything about it, but Stern was in that position as owner. Hence the reason it shouldn't even be brought up in the case with Boogie. Adam Silver literally couldn't block Boogie even if he wanted to, just like Stern wouldn't have been able to block Paul if he wasn't acting owner. What are you missing here? Are the blocks connected in your brain yet?
