Chris Paul: Pros and Cons of the Los Angeles Lakers’ Proposed Trade

The past couple of days have been rather interesting in the world of sports.

In baseball, the Anaheim Angels signed Albert Pujols for a 10-year contract worth $254 million dollars. That is an amazing amount amount of money and I'm sure Angel supporters wish for him to reel in a world championship.

In soccer, "El Clásico" took place and Barçelona conceded a victory over Real Madrid after trailing 1-0 in another intense matchup.

And now, in the NBA, the Dallas Mavericks sent Center Tyson Chandler to the New York Knicks in a three-way trade involving the Washington Wizards.

And of course everyone knows about the situation with Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers were going to land the best point guard in the NBA—but here comes the almighty David Stern and ruins it for the Lakers. Well, that's what it seemed at first. Ruining and screwing over the Lakers.

I have mixed reactions toward this trade. I am a Laker fan, so seeing Pau and Odom leave after watching them play for so long, it's hard to believe they will leave. However, seeing CP3 command the court for LA is a dream!

Many were going to save around 80 dollars to buy a brand new CP3 jersey while others were going to save their Gasol and LO jerseys.

It comes as no surprise that good and bad will come from every single trade that has ever gone through. Here are a couple of pros and cons you will notice when the Lakers tip off against the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day.
