@D@vid lol, I'm not following what you are saying.  (insert confused emoticon here)

@[weed wolf faction] @FF_pickups @d21 Some of the stuff he was saying was inaccurate but overall I thought it was pretty fair.  To me it comes down to one thing, if Durant resigns in two years, then the Thunder were right, if Durant skips town, then Presti and the entire front office should be fired.

Bill Simmons had extremely strong criticism of the Thunder on his podcast yesterday and I thought it was pretty fair.  Did anyone else listen to that?

@[weed wolf faction] The Perkins contract was an unqualified disaster.  Because most people thought it was good doesn't excuse Presti.  I can tell you one person who didn't think it was a good contract, Danny Ainge.  Collison's contract was clever, Thabo's was okay but Harden and Perkins were absolutely crippling.  And did I mention that the Luxury tax line went up to $77 million?  Presti blew it, period.  And the positives which I do credit him for are so much smaller than the negatives.  I'm not saying he's a bad GM but these Royce articles are really annoying.

I'm not arguing about the results, just look at his moves over the last 5 years or so, he's been getting beaten at almost every step.  The Harden trade is going to go down as one of the worst in history.  Seriously, that's not hyperbole.  The Perkins contract was actually worse.  The Aldrich draft pick.  He's had a couple of decent wins in there, sticking it to Ibaka on a contract, getting Jackson in the late first round.  But overall, he's had a really bad run and yet Royce can't stop fawning over the guy.

@[weed wolf faction] And besides that, as good as that team was, it's significantly better if he doesn't make the worst trade of the century.

@[weed wolf faction] I'm not going to argue with you about that team.  The Heat were massive favorites in Vegas, no one outside of this tendentious board thinks that the Thunder were better that year.

What are the thunder without Westbrook and Durant?? Not much. So for all this bluster by Royce about how amazingly they run a franchise, they sure haven't done a whole lot right with respect to transactions since 2009.

@Legendary_Dork When Durant becomes a free agent, the media coverage and the pursuit by other teams is going to be just as frenzied as the LeBron free agency.

@Old Man Game It was widely reported that the Lakers were willing to sign and trade and that they wanted future first round picks to do it.  I don't believe for one second that Gasol wouldn't have come to Oklahoma if he could make 10 million per year.  Therefore, it was possible.  I am convinced that Presti thought that 10 million per year plus 2 first round picks was just too much to pay for Gasol.

5 seconds left,  Down by 3 and the 80% ft shooting opponent is dribbling the ball.  What's the correct move?  Foul?  Fouling is approximately a negative 1.6 pt decision but if you just let time run out, it is a + zero point decision or approximately 1.6 pts better than fouling.  Yet we know that fouling is correct because if you don't foul, you have zero percent chance of winning but if you do foul, the opponent will miss both free throws about 4 percent of the time and you get a chance for a shot of winning.  The end of the game is what makes a difference.  Sometimes decisions that appear negative EV in a vacuum are actually correct such as fouling at the end of a game.  Durant's impending free agency could be another one of those situations.  If the Thunder knows that Durant is going to resign, then trading assets and overpaying Gasol is not a good decision but if there is a real risk of losing Durant if we don't win a title, then not overpaying for Gasol was a huge mistake.  Time is running out, tick tock, tick tock.

"A much more controlled financial approach using the draft and trade market, rather than falling into the feeding frenzy that is free agency." -RY


Could have written it as

"Presti prefers to gamble it up with the risky, unknown quantities of rookies  at the end of the 1st round rather than deal with known, robust commodities of free agency."

@[weed wolf faction] @FF_pickups @KetelOne @MJOKC  It's not that I don't think he'd be good there but I don't know why he'd want to go there and be play scrub minutes for no money just to chase a ring when he already has two.

If KD leaves in 2 years, don't make excuses and say that there was nothing that Presti could have done.  He could've given up enough assets to get Gasol.
