    No, this is quite possibly the most loaded team. These are 4 of the top 10-15 players in the L. The Heatles had 3 of the top 10-12, but were much more concentrated. The scary thing with these four is because of their skillset, they are cohesive.

    What 1 + 1 + 1= 5 in Miami. These four will add up to 10.

    I don't know about that, people were already watching every Warriors game, and now less people will be watching OKC games.

    Going to a team that won 60+ games and a championship and then 73 games and was minutes away from a second title.... Just doesn't impress me at all.
    They won 73 games without him. There is no real challenge in that. Overall a very beta move.

    Honestly this isn't good for the league either. Adding one of the 3-4 best players in the world to a team that had the MVP and won 73 games really hurts the competitiveness of the league.

    It's the same thing Lebron and others did. The 2nd year is a player option. Barring a gigantic injury, he'll opt out and sign a new deal next year.

    Warriors had to do something once we signed Ryan Anderson.

    No...he'll opt out after one year to join WB, but help Curry get another ring first. Grrrrrrrrrrrr

    This Durant buzz happens all over again next summer. And we'll talk about landing him when he opts out.

    book it!

    With what cap space?

    They'll have to up Curry's intake too.

    This is now a domino effect:

    Barnes to Dallas
    Gasol to SA
    Westbrook traded to ???

    And thus ends OKCs relevancy until the end of time.

    Goodbye OKC. We'll see you in 10 years, give or take!

    Traded Harden
    Traded Ibaka "Durant was OK with it"
    Ha...
