08:07 AM ET 12.09 | David Stern woke up Friday in the cross hairs of much criticism after cutting the Chris Paul trade off at the knees. What an outrageous abuse of power. What an ungodly mess Stern and the owners have made. ... His ruling did what the lockout failed to do -- ordered Paul to get back to work in New Orleans. "If Chris Paul doesn't get traded," said one source close to the Paul talks, "and if he ends up losing $30 million or $40 million in free agency because he wants to sign with someone else, I think he might have the biggest lawsuit the league has ever seen." This is a terrible day for the NBA. If it's not Tim Donaghy, or Latrell Sprewell attacking P.J. Carlesimo, or the Malice in the Palace, it's close enough.

The Knick fans are still convinced that Paul is definitely going to NYC.

So this lawsuit stuff to get him to the Lakers can't be true -- right ?
