    I was one of the people questioning how much OKC could expect to get for Westbrook and I was very far off. As much as it sucks to lose your guys OKC fans gotta be feeling pretty good right now.

    Presti got great value here but to be honest I'd be pretty depressed if I was an OKC fan. To have 4 mvp type players on my team at one point or another and make only 1 finals has to be pretty depressing. What are the chances any of those draft picks turn into players as good as Durant Harden Westbrook or PG?

    And then even if they do what are the chances any of those guys will actually want to sign long term in OKC after their rookie deals/extensions are up? They got really lucky Westbrook felt any type of loyalty because if he doesn't sign that extension then they don't re-sign PG and have nothing to show for any of it. Presti has proven to be one of the better GMs so that matters more than anything in the long run but still that what if has to sting.

    Reading Royce Young’s piece on Russ today and read the line, “He won’t be the first Thunder player to have his jersey retired— that honor went to Nick Collison,” and my first thought was, someone retired Nick Collisons jersey?

    I think it's clear they did deliberately misuse him (they didn't stagger him and Russ for example), but I think he also made a leap that summer. Really transformed his body that offseason

    maybe okc shouldnt have been cheapskates and paid the luxury tax for one year in order to keep harden, kd and russ together. idk tho how would their billionaire owner have survived without those extra few bucks

    they shouldnt have traded either bc they had a young core coming off a finals appearance and would have had to pay the luxury tax for one year at most with those 3 + ibaka on their deals at the time

    That would have been actual good decision making. Iirc there was some argument that he's the "only player in the league who can defend ___". Dont remember who it was, dwight maybe? Something ridiculous.

    I think I would be less upset about this than I would have been about trading for Russ. Not sure Blake would feel the same way about that, though.

    If Blake was okay with it and OKC kicked in an asset or two to make the trade worthwhile, I think I'd do that if I were the Pistons. Don't think they can just straight up trade for him without OKC adding anything else, though, because Detroit would have make it's current team worse in order to do that.

    Blake's been playing with Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith the last 18 months. That can change a man.

    Blake for CP3 deal :americafuckyeah:

    Oklahoma gets their prodigal son and Detroit gets their small asshole PG that they’ve lacked since Zeke retired.

    The parable of the prodigal son definitely applies to Blake Griffin if he were traded to OKC.

    Blake left his home state of Oklahoma to the sinful land of LA and would be returning back to the wholesome land of Oklahoma.
