    this probably bumps their title odds up and they stay in the tier right behind LAL/LAC

    wouldn't surprise me

    paul compliments harden and houston's offense way better than westbrook does

    thunder are actually closer to the title now than they were with westbrook because they have more assets now to build. they've bottomed out.

    the tweet someone posted earlier about paul being around a good team with those picks is pretty funny, though. those picks are through like 2025. paul will be limping then.

    We haven't bottomed out yet, still assets on the way for Gallo and maybe Adams and maybe Paul

    Presti is fine but very few GMs have ever had the leverage he had on the Clippers in that Paul George trade

    Even ignoring the fact it's a lottery, I'm pretty sure OKC is still better than at least 2 teams in the western conference alone

    This.. the rockets are absolutely better off after this deal. If it doesn’t work, well oh well it wasn’t working with the current roster.

    i could see Gallo bringing in a pick (though Mirotic last year didn't get a 1st) but i really doubt Adams or CP3 (especially) get anything.

    They swapped equally shitty contracts and got at minimum two guaranteed firsts when it’s likely the Rockets are at best mediocre and two additional pick swaps it’s a home fucking run for the Thunder.

    they are mystery boxes
