    While this would be entertaining I’m sure, Russ is just an inefficient player who has proven he’s not a winner.

    I’ve also never been convinced he makes those around him better.

    With that said it would be amazing to have somebody of elite athleticism on our team which I feel we’ve been lacking for quite some, bar GG’s occasional put back, even though it will most likely amount to nothing in seasons end.

    I’d personally rather opt for Kevin Love who is a legit 4, high IQ player, can spread the floor and rebound at a high clip.

    Only problem there is we have nothing Cleveland would want unless a 3rd team helps facilitate with Ego for a 1st likely with 2 more of our own.

    No chance in hell. Russell Westbrook is an inefficient chucker that cares about his numbers at the expense of the team. He has been in the league about a decade and has yet to change his spots.

    I hope it’s true. Please let Westbrook go east and team up with Jimmy Butler.

    Jimmy Buckethead will be demanding a trade by January if that happens.

    Well, Russ and Harden had their chance to win a ship against the Heat. They were young but not entirely without a chance.

    WB won't win one anytime soon or at all, it seems.

    What is Miami giving up? 2025 and 2027 picks? OKC already owns their 2021 and 2023. Might as well mortgage their entire future.

    "No one wants to play with Russ! Everyone blames everyone else except him when it comes to the Thunder losing! People have bad basketball mixed up with loyalty. Russ is all about Russ! He's more worried about stats vs playing winning basketball! Everyone can say what they want but owners & GMs in the NBA know the real about Russell and his style of play. So fans can say what they want but moving forward to the future, OKC will have to trade Russ & he will have to become a better player/teammate. He can keep that intensity and competitiveness but reality has set in. NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY WITH HIM!!!"

    Oh yea let's spin the narrative why KD left lol. Harden was traded against his will so why he uses him to back his hypothesis up? PG wanted to be in LA from day 1 too. RW isn't best player in the game but let's stop acting like he is a scrub

    I believe he can write a more coherent text.
