I think Simmons finally broke me. I am officially mad about the Harden trade. This is depressing.

Doesn't the fact they offered 55 mil to Harden prove the Thunder are willing to pay the tax?

Why would we not take Kelly Olynyk at number 12? He can post up and shoot jumpers. Him and Ibaka together would be pretty devastating.

@elginthunder The biggest problem is he can't shoot and until he can I don't want OKC anywhere near him.

 @Royce Young  @ThunderWins I know Brooks gets a lot of flack for not running a better offense but this was an interesting comment. http://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/1bxj87/warriors_elevator_doors_play/c9b9sur

Basically Golden States Assistant coach draws up a lot of the plays and the Head coach is a motivator/leader. For where the thunder was 4 years ago Brooks was a great option in building a successful team and we wouldn't be where we are without him however having an assistant who could run a more complex offense I think would do us well.

I hate whenever Simmons talks about the harden trade. He says we should have kept Harden this season because we would have gotten the same deal from Houston in a sign and trade which is complete shit. We would have 0 leveraging power then. Look at what happened with Howard and Paul. He then says we should have got more from Houston. What he fails to understand or even have a remotely intelligent thought on is we needed to replace what harden did for OKC not what he can do for Houston. OKC couldn't utilize Harden to his full value because he would always be the third option. This is why Presti didn’t want to give him the max. Not because Harden isn’t a great player or because OKC is a small market but because giving Harden the max would have hurt Presti's ability to sign players and trade for players. Not to mention Ibaka just took a paycut and what message would OKC have sent to Ibaka if they gave harden the max.

 

To replace harden we needed an ultra-efficient 2 guard who is okay with coming off the bench and can make an offensive impact with few touches. How many SG's like that are there? 5 maybe? We were able to get one of those guys and a prospect and some good draft picks. I say we got as much as we could have. Even Houston's GM said so. We got more for harden than Orlando got for Howard, NO got for chris paul and any other big name trade of the last few years.

 @tygablood  @justin_mia  @MissYouCole  @Jooseppi Just because harden got a 5 year deal didnt mean he got the super-max. If he won MVP or made 2 all-star games in his rookie contract he would of qualified for more money. He didnt get either so he just got houstons 1 5 year extension not the super-max.

 @tygablood  @justin_mia  @MissYouCole  @Jooseppi Theres a real super max called the rose rule. Durant has it but westbrook qualified for it and declined it to help the team with their cap space. If a player coming of their rookie deal made 2 all star teams or won MVP aka Derrick Rose" then they can sign for 30% instead of 25%. This is separate from if its a 4 or 5 year contract.

Im not 100% sure this is completely about money. If the thunder were willing to give him 55.5 mill and pay the tax they would probably be willing to pay him 60 mill and the tax. However if during the negotiations it was clear harden had no interest in sacrifice and the betterment of the team aka Russ/KD/Serge then even if they were willing to pay the tax what if his attitude made them believe he isnt as good as a fit for the organization as we all believed.
