If he did,he would've pulled the plug on the Nets heist for Vince Carter
like he did with the Lakers and Chris Paul. ( when he and his boys owned the Hornets).
But he's responsible for the nba's expansion and is the reason we have a team. And he didn't own the Raptors
so couldn't veto the trade. Blame out gm
