    I'm just so worried about Russ' shooting. Back during Hate Watch 2018 and 2019 I watched him shoot his entire franchise out of games. It was awful (and exhilarating since I was actively rooting against OKC)

    A Rockets-related WOJ bomb that we didn't already know about first... wow

    @cyberx, @Codman, @ch44: Were you guys sitting on the info so nothing would jeopardize the deal?

    It was the Media that made you hate him. I never disliked Russ, it was the Media swinging from his scrot that was so annoying.

    You think Westbrook is worse than CP3? I hate the guy and even I know better. Come on, meow.

    Don’t feel bad for CP3. He’s still making his money, still a respected pg and now he gets to boss around average players. His temperament is not a well suited mesh with other superstars. He finally has HIS team and is likely chomping at the bit to prove himself all over again.

    For those of you who don’t like the move, consider the optics. Russ is far more athletic than CP3 and brings more energy to a team who looked listless at crucial times. He and Harden have been balling together since they were kids so their social game doesn’t need massaging, They don’t need to get to know each other, they already do. And if I’m an owner I’d want THE best players on my team and would be tickled pink that my GM managed to put 2 MVP’s together in their prime without losing a championship contending core.

    We just needed to get a little better, and today, we did.

    Why buy him out? OKC can trade him later. CP3 isn't worth $30 mil, but there isn't going to be any good starting PGs on the market soon. Demand will make him a favorable trade despite the contract (Miami).

    LOL why? Dude’s an @sshole.

    He’s the kind of guy that, when he’s on your team, you make excuses for and say he’s just a “competitor”. You don’t have to do that anymore.

    I actually think this is more a Harden move at this point, Westbrook is his buddy and reports already said they both pushed to play together...if you also consider those reports about James and CP3 not getting along, the "i know what we have to do" thing etc...

    If it turns out to be a complete disaster, then maybe we could trade Westbrook and Harden for the rebuild after next season.

    This team was already done. At the very least they now have a chance to go out with a bang.
