Thunder may not be in prime position this year, but the future is set up beautifully. Presti has proven he's a BAMF in the draft. Two more 1st round picks will come in handy in time.
It's a big ****ing gamble

I would be mad if I was a thunder chicken fan. Kevin Martin sucks, Lamb could be a good player in a couple of years, and the picks can turn into cole aldrichs



Thunder chickens gave up. scared of the heat.



must feel good to be a laker fan right now

I know Lin has been sucking the balls in preseason but I'd like see Lin/harden backcourt

I would have to agree - he's drafted awesome. Ibaka is a very underrated player IMO. Not only is he drafting skilled players but they're all athletic and skilled.

Yeah, the Celtics got put out by Miami in seven............they wont be in the mix.


Too old.

They dont have much of a bench either.

Terry.

Sullinger.

Bradley.

Green.

Collins.


Not much there to be concerned.


Pierce cant score anymore.......

Garnett isnt a warrior anymore........

Rondo isnt the man..........


Yeah.


Celtics wont be there.

Was shocked to see the news about Harden last night.

I think the Thunder got worse short term, BUT as has been stated, I would trust Presti about anything basketball related.

RC Buford is the best. Which is exactly who Presti got his FO skills from. Some of Presti's picks were high draft picks. Buford hasn't had a high pick in years.

Yeah, I think if Rose hadn't been injured, they would have terminated Boozer's. I think Boozer will eventually be amnestied.

What about chemistry? playing together. The ups and downs. A very young core team that made the NBA Finals. won a game. And one of the huge cogs that helped get the thunder to the finals is gone.

amazing

How is OKC cheap? They gave 2 max contracts to their 2 best players, KD and Westbrook.
They also gave a deal to Ibaka for $48 million dollars. And they couldn't offer Harden the max $60 million dollar limit, so they gave him a generous $55 million dollar offer and he refused.

You can't just hand out max contracts to everbody. That's why there is a salary cap.

Oh and fyi, Harden shot 38% and had 14 PPG as a starter. That's not max contract worthy..

As a guy from Washington, i'm a diehard Wiz fan. I rooted hard for Miami the last two playoffs because I'm a LeBron fan (Best player in the NBA hands down).

I had high hopes back in early August. Then I hear that both John Wall and Nene are injured. My hopes are shattered. If we can hover around .500 by the time both those guys get back then maybe we might have a chance for the playoffs.

If not then hopefully we suck hard (like we usually do) and get another top 3 pick. We already have Wall and Bradley Beal has looked sharp. Having another young stud would be nice. Just need to hope that Wall doesnt leave town in the next few years.

I hope the Wizards GM realizes by now that you dont draft european stick men with top 6 draft picks. We picked Jan Vesely last summer and man, he sucks. I wish we had the Nuggets Kenneth Farried.

I think Harden is overrated and will be a bust in Houston. He's not worth a max contract.

It's a good deal for the Thunder. Get a quality 20+ ppg scorer, a good young prospect, and loads of draft picks.

Dion Waitors!! For a guy that most people think was a bust pick, he seems to make the Cavs better. Hopefully he keeps improving.

Ouch, my condolences. As if all other washington teams don't fail enough, you got this embarrassment of a franchise.

I am not a wiz fan (the only team in DC that I really don't follow), but they fit the DC sports scene perfectly. Only a couple of more years until they make the playoffs and fail like the caps and nats.

Want to add a little fear to Thunder fans. The trade could work greatly or suck ass.
