WWE makes fun of NBA for failed Chris Paul trade to Lakers

via cdn2.sbnation.com

If any of you pro wrestling fans out there double as National Basketball Association (NBA) fans, you'll enjoy this one.

Recently, New Orleans Hornets guard and superstar player Chris Paul was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-team blockbuster deal that set the sporting world on fire.

And then the NBA and David Stern, the commissioner, came along and threw water on the whole thing by vetoing the trade because "it's not in the best interests of the league." It's important to note that the NBA currently owns the Hornets. That very fact set the media world on fire.

All this is happening not long after an ugly labor dispute nearly forced the cancellation of an entire season. The NBA and its players finally came to an agreement to save most of the season but now, before it was even able to get underway, the league has been plunged right back into chaos.

General managers across the Association are threatening to resign while Stern is reportedly considering retiring from his post as commissioner.

It's been a disaster of epic proportions. So what does WWE do? They have John Laurinaitis, the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager, put out this brilliant tweet:

For those of you who are speculating, yes, I did offer David Stern some advice recently. #NBA #CP3

Ziiiing!

How great is that? I suddenly find myself enjoying Laurinaitis more and more as the days and weeks go by. Stuff like this is exactly what he should be doing on TV.

Oh and WWE is totally right to take shots at the NBA for this entire Chris Paul debacle.
