Maybe The Chris Paul Trade Needs Tim Tebow To Balance Things Out

He's basically almost sent to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-team deal that isn't commensurate to his talent level. Then when everyone decides they'll re-work the deal once Commissioner David Stern blocks the trade, the Lakers actually decide they will pull out of the deal.
