    They’re playing good, Westbrook is actually differing to PG & Schroder. He’s always been their problem with his ballhogging.

    Also keep an eye on Presti at deadline. Ppat has been bad, sure he’s looking to upgrade in his spot.

    If OKC is firmly in 2nd place by the end of the year and Paul George keeps this up, I think he should be MVP top 2-3 at least and maybe even win it. Thoughts?

    Win it? No. Finish 3rd behind Harden and Giannis? Sure

    Even when Rockets are 6-8th seed? Arguably..

    Yeah, even when the Rockets are 6-8th seed. Harden is having 1 of the best scoring seasons ever, he’s doing stuff we haven’t seen since Wilt. Giannis has better numbers than PG and his team is better.

    PG would be the weakest MVP winner since Derrick Rose, but at least the Bulls were a 60 win team, something OKC won’t be. What he’s doing is good enough to finish 3rd.

    In the conversation, but I'm not convinced he's better than Westbrook. Westbrook is creating the offense. George should be up for dpoy though

    Seems Russ is finally figuring out the less he shoots, the better the team is. He’s just playing like J Kidd out there and thunder are thriving.

    It's more like he played when he had Durant

    Anyone else thinks OKC should go all in for Anthony Davis? Adams, Shroeder, Ferguson for Davis and Mirotic works salary wise. OKC can add picks. It's unlikely that any of the Lakers young players will ever be as good as Adams. Even if Davis does not re-sign, that still gives OKC 2 years where they would be the favourites to win it all.

    OKC was so quiet during the trade deadline, my palms started to sweat. I legit thought they were going to trade for Brad Beal. My sodium levels would have risen to hypertension!

    Presti always seems to pull off these bat sh-t crazy trades. Today I'm thankful.

    What was up with this guy? He was in the starting lineup then he wasn't. They initially said it was because of family reasons then he never came back. Now he has been waived.

    It will come out one or the other way in this time of modern tech.

    OKC paying through the nose in the luxury tax (in a SMALL market). Related: Winning games due to talent.
