    If they dont get Kawhi the Lakers will get Marcus Morris, Danny Green, Kyle Korver, probably Boogie.  They’ll be a playoff team barring injury.  Anthony Davis is like Samuel L Jackson’s character on Unbreakable.  Mr Glass
    I heard that the spurs are going for Boogie.  as for Green that depends on where Leonard signs, i could see him come back to toronto if leonard signs there.  AD for me has always been overrated.  yes he is a great player but people saying he is a top 5 players doesn't make sense to me.
    His jumper is getting worse, not better.  He needs to get that back to create space for Lebron.

    As a raptors fan I would love Leonard to come back and I feel that he will but if he doesn't then I want him on the Clippers mostly cause I want to see the lakers fail which they will if they don't get Leonard. 

    maybe I will get slammed for this but if the Lakers don't get Leonard, I could see them either being a bottom seed or not making the playoffs next year even with James and AD.
    The Clippers are out.  It's between Toronto and LA.  Chris Carter says the announcement will be tomorrow.  Many say the Raptors are front runners, but it's close...

    So just reported that there will be no decision today.  i think the longer its goes the better it is for the raptors.

    Carmelo Anthony is still available. If Toronto signs him, it will be like Kahwi never left.

    OKC gets 2 double digit scorers and 4 unprotected first rounders.  Considering they couldn't make it out of the first round for two years, I think OKC was losing ground in the west.  This is probably a good trade, but you have to wonder how long Westbrook will be there.  

    What a year coming up.  I'm really looking forward to it.  We may even have a meaningful regular season.
  • Jason PJason P Posts: 17,856
    Nice to see Paul George not completely fuck OKC like he did the Pacers.  What a great douche he is.
  • Jason PJason P Posts: 17,856
    But there is one team (and country) Paul George completely fucked ... bet you didn't see that one coming, Canada.
  • PoncierPoncier Posts: 9,664

    Huge haul for OKC. Clips should suck again by the time at least the last 2 picks convey, plus they got Miami's 2021, They have major building blocks, just looking at a few down years first.


    And Lakers revert to their smart selves by paying 15 mil a year for Danny Green who looked like he lost his shot for much of the playoffs.

    This weekend we rock Portland

    NOLA and OKC are going to dominate the mid to late 2020s with all of these tradable assets

    Sixers gotta be the odds on favorites at this point right? Especially if they get Korver on vet minimum

    Bucks, on paper, don’t look as good at the moment.

    I think it's a good trade too for OKC. They were never gonna  make it out of the West any time soon. Yes, should be interesting if they , can? (trade Westbrook)

    Should be a great season coming up as ther could be a number of teams that have a legit chance winning the NBA Championship.

    And now Westbrook's agent is working on a trade.  It only makes sense.  I would want to leave too.

    Here come the Knicks to trade major assets for an aging PG that without athletism isn’t much.....

    Westbrook type guys don’t lift trophies

    This is true.  As good as he is and fun to watch he won't win a chip unless he uses his team more which is funny considering he averages 10 assists a game.

    So that whole team, the OKC franchise rather, has had 3 of the best players in the NBA leave them in Durant, Harden and PG.

    The one constant is Westbrook.

    All fingers have to point at him right?

    I think he’s been one of the more overrated players in the league for some time now.

    Averaging a triple double for 2 consecutive years is hardly "over rated".

    His teams early playoff exits though I would agree with you then.

  • DewieCoxDewieCox Posts: 9,839
    He’s the quintessential stat padder. Hard to say he’s overrated with as much ability as he has but the triple double thing isn’t nearly as impressive to watch as it is on the stat sheet.

    He’s not going to wreck the internal chemistry of a team, but he’ll make a mess of any on court chemistry to make sure he gets his. Shame, because he’s athletically gifted as they come and I love the throwback competitive fire.

    He's a stat stuffer.
    Averaged 22 points on 20 shot attempts.
    He's a bad three point shooter yet he jacks up 6 a game.
    Stealing cheap rebounds from teammates all the time to get those triple doubles.

    He never has success in the playoffs and George is now the second "star" player who wanted to get away from him. I've never been a fan.

    No love for Harden apparently too, lol?

    If I had a team they would not include Westbrook or Harden but you just can't deny their talent, you just can't.
