    Great trade to acquire him. A hamstring away from a championship. Member of one of the greatest Rockets’ teams of all time. I’ll always appreciate him, just wish he could have come about 2 years earlier.

    Terrible ****ing trade.


    Westbrook is a TERRIBLE fit for this team.

    Bye CP3... it's a shame you will never win a title/ring until your disastrous contract is up or you get bought out and go to a contender (aka ring chasing)

    I'm in shock. Bye, CP. I still think you had some good years left (in spite of your ridiculous contract) and I want to see you win a ring. Unfortunately OKC is in a downward spiral.

    I'm not sure I want to see Westbrook win.

    Kinda feel bad about Cp3, he had a sit down talk with Rox mgt and told them he would understand if he got traded and they assured him they want to win with him.

    Apparently you can't trust anybody in the NBA. Hats off to Cp3 though, what a class act. You can also bet he will be bought out and then go to LA to play with Bron and Melo.

    I'm sad to see CP3 go. I was ready for him to have a breakout season after everyone here crapped all over him. ah well. I hope Westbrook learned how to shoot.

    Westbrook is a ****ing TERRIBLE fit for this team. Can't shoot the 3, can't defend. The only thing he will do well is pound the ****ing air our of the ball like James. Maybe it will give Harden a taste of his own ****.


    Can't wait for a new GM

    At least he can beat his defender off the dribble and make defenses fear his penetration. PnRs with Capela are going to be fun to watch.

    Thank You for Everything, CP3... Good luck in Miami ... or NYC (no way he stays in OKC)

    I agree. Cp3 is about to return to form this season.

    But I'm also guessing Harden flexed his franchise muscles to make it happen so nobody has any choice in the matter. I just hope it works out and Westbrick stops bricking shots.

    I mean there's also a chance it can work I guess, WB is only 30 so our window got extended by 5 years or so. There's that at least.

    He is going to the lakers they need a point guard and who better than the point god? Also it would be a great chance for him to stick it to Houston i the playoffs.

    Dude must feel like he just got blasted by Clutch's t-shirt cannon right about now.

    That call may be Harden's. If Harden told you to get rid of a dude he is having friction with and get his best buddy on the squad you have to do it otherwise you are out of a job.
