Another Moneyball Meaning

Did anyone else find it odd that the Knicks simply purchased the 29th overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft on Thursday from the Lakers for $3M? I mean, I can't really blame the Lakers since they just won a championship and don't really need more players, so why not take the extra $3M. And I guess it's not really the Knicks fault since they are allowed to do it and desperately need help in adding as much talent as they can. However, there is just something that bothers me about being able to buy a draft pick from someone. It just gives me a feel of dishonesty for some reason, but maybe I'm just being ol' fashion. Either way, if this is going to continue to be a trend, maybe the NBA Championship Trophy should look more like this...
