@SeinfeldOKC Bitch? No, probably not, at least outside of bitter OKC circles if the era ends with no titles. Discuss? Most likely, it was a monumental trade of a superstar entering his prime with a potential dynasty for a very shitty reason that had a historically bad return. It will be very interesting from a basketball and sports economics perspective for a very long time. It will also become even more interesting and discussed if Harden leads a team to a title.

lol at people just assuming the PHI game is gonna be a win for us. They have us circled on their schedule too.
@KetelOne @_justin SVG doesn't have the kind of team he wants yet. He obviously hates Jennings, and is doing weird stuff with Drummond. He got a dumpster fire, gotta give him a couple years to implement his vision. I'm still really high on him.
@_justin @KetelOne @mattchant @Long Arm of the Law Agree, although I don't think its dire. Ibaka, Durant and Morrow are all dead eye shooters, and I trust Westbrook when he's open. Not ideal, but not a disaster.
@KetelOne @mattchant @Long Arm of the Law Nah, Clay pocketed them.
@KetelOne @Long Arm of the Law Its a good question, and it seems to be predicated on our organizational philosophy. Presti really likes long athletes. Well, everyone likes long athletes. And long athletes that can shoot are at a huge premium. So we often end up with long athletes who can't shoot. My 2 cents.
@Long Arm of the Law @TheTwoHeadedMonster Against the Magic, it really oughta.
@propsizzle @mattchant 8 more games? Nah, we'll be fried. Team's not that good with Westbrook back frankly, a middling .500ish team at best imo.

I think 12/7 is probably the deadline. If Durant isn't back by then, we're toast.
@Greeed @mattchant The years 3-12 teams made the playoffs.
@Greeed @mattchant I'm guessing it was during those years.
Only four teams over the past 20 seasons have started 3-12 and rallied to reach the postseason ... three of them from the East.
@Lost Ones Yes, but not a game winning one. Plenty late shots that have kept games in reach.

@UnleashMorrowFaction @Greeed @Lost Ones Durant flops.

@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant The floor spacing with Morrow is delicious, and I'm honestly ok asking Westbrook to guard the other team's best scoring guard. I want to see Westbrook diving into wide open lanes with Durant and Morrow on the wings and Ibaka at the elbow.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant Probably at the beginning. I'm concerned about floor spacing, even Thabo wasn't usually left wide open. Moreso in the playoffs, and it WAS a big problem.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant @DanielLawler @Air Bud @Greeed I've been a fan of too many titleless teams for too long to watch one of mine do something like that and be ok with it honestly.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant I thought his offense would keep him off the floor. I still think it might with the healthy team.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @DanielLawler @Air Bud @mattchant @Greeed lol, the people bitching hardest about this bitched about it at the time, no hindsight needed
@DanielLawler @Air Bud @mattchant @Greeed We could kick in McGary.
@Greeed @mattchant You might find them in the Finals, at 22 years old.
@UnleashMorrowFaction Roberson is better than expected.
@Greeed Imagine this team if you could upgrade our SG to the best one in the NBA.
@holdmymartian Our 14th, 15th and 16th men are playing big minutes dog.
@AIaska @Air Bud I'd sign Air Bud at this point.
@DanielLawler @_justin Lance Thomas is not an NBA caliber player. Neither is Telfair, or Ish Smith. This is part of why we never win a game.
@Lost Ones w00t. Abrines too! Great deal.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant @_justin @TheGlove Steven Adams and Jeremy Lamb, compared to James Harden, is a pile of refuse. And I like Adams!
@Air Bud @Sustainable Parameters @TheGlove @mattchant @Lost Ones Like when Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett all got together?
@_justin @TheGlove Certainly wouldn't have traded James Harden for a pile of refuse.
@d21 @mattchant Awww, LAL isn't letting Brooks drive the Cadillac. Phil Jackson probably. Maybe Doc Rivers.
@Thunder_Blue @DanielLawler @Air Bud Sure could, just not in OKC.
@d21 Coach of the LA Lakers was always his dream job. I doubt it, just needs to ride out the Kobe years and they'll get him KD, Westbrook and Love.
@TheGlove @mattchant @Lost Ones lol, ok
@_justin @mattchant @UnleashMorrowFaction @Lost Ones I'm sure they did, he was a central piece in the Harden fiasco. But they were very wrong, and that's a part of their record.
@TheGlove @mattchant @Lost Ones Oh no! He's not Durant! Good thing he only wanted role player money.
@UnleashMorrowFaction @mattchant @Lost Ones I just threw up in my mouth.
@Lost Ones Or kept K-Mart for the same price, since he was a perfect fit for our historically successful offense.
@DanielLawler @_justin @mattchant Absolutely. But it was obviously not the case at the time, and the argument has become laughably absurd at this point.
@_justin @DanielLawler @mattchant Yup.
Honestly, as good a drafter as Presti is, it would've been nice to have an older, experienced GM with serious gravitas in the room with Clay when they talked about whether they could afford to keep James Harden.
@_justin @mattchant @d21 Depends how it happens. Lose Durant after a 2nd round elimination? Sure. Lose Durant after going down in 7 in the Finals? Probably not.
4 days, 7 hours ago on Thunder skid hits 6 games as OKC falls to Golden State
@d21 They should. A GM who can't convert drafting Durant, Westbrook, Harden and Ibaka in a 3 year period into a title doesn't deserve to stick around.
@_justin @d21 Not definitely, but it will need to be seriously considered.
LOL at swinging it to Roberson for the tie. That's basically like swinging it to Perk.
@ThunderUp15 @DanielLawler He achieved being the 2nd best player on a playoff team.

@Divine Mortal Yea, I'm pretty stoked, came together pretty recently. Lot of my classmates are gonna make 160k, but their hours are gonna be absolute hell.
@Divine Mortal I have a 90k salary lined up after law school, including bonuses, not including benefits
@UnleashMorrowFaction @DanielLawler @d21 I wanted Dieng.
