    F him if this is true. Piggy backing off the Warriors to win a ring is pathetic.

    For some reason, I do not feel the same hate towards him that I felt for Lebron during His Decision.

    He could't turn down playing for the Warriors.
    No way

    Amazing how a team the Rockets used to wipe the floor with (GSW) turned it around on the back of great coaching and a great GM. They continue to do some great things and have just gone one step further.

    Rockets and GSW were seen as up and coming teams pretty much on par. They have gone several tiers up with the hire of Kerr which coincided with the growth of their players and backed by a great GM. Rockets went several tiers down persisting with McHale and a very mediocre GM.

    Good luck to KD and the Warriors!

    Meh. I haven't "lost respect for him." He's joining a great franchise in a great area that lots of people want to move to. And he definitely gave OKC a lot of good years including re-upping with them last time.

    Ask 100 people his age if they'd rather live comfortably in the Bay Area or comfortably in Oklahoma City. No offense to OKC, but the Bay Area would win for people in their 20's and 30's.

    Pressure on the Warriors will be unbelievable. I think they'll struggle to adjust (in the early parts of next season) b/c *basically* now Steph, Klay, and Durant all do more or less the same thing offensively. They need good picks to take long jumpers. Do you really need *three* elite people that do that on the court at the same time?

    Better see if his skinny butt can set a Bogut-worthy pick. :grin:

    I am of the firm opinion you don't change a thing on a 73 win team, but whatever.

    Lets get Bogut to facilitate.

    Why the **** did he sign a two year deal?

    He won't have bird rights to be re-signed after. I thought minimum bird rights by a new team are 3 years. And this is unless OKC S&T's him.

    That is his choice but like in past when a Superstar joins a team with other stars the first season is not an automatic or a guarantee to make the finals and win it all.

    I kinda think Westbrook is excited that OKC is his team now.

    How? isnt winning a ring the prime objective as players get older? West turned down 11 mill for a vet minimum to play with a better team. Why cant durant do the same?
