    Beal is going to be pissed when teams start triple teaming him the way they did Harden and Paul G while Westbrook is just open to do whatever it is they say he does.

    We get a better Cp3. He had a down year and was likely playing hurt. He switched to Vegan BEFORE the season started. Anyone who thinks he wasnt coming back better, hasnt been following him. That was dumb on our part to take that stupid trade. PICK SWAPS FOR WESTBROOK....naaah. Why do you think Morey didnt want to do it? Cause he knew we were attaching assets for a worse player.

    We could still trade Capela for Covington and still get picks for another big, maybe even woods.

    There is no evidence that Harden forced this trade though. It was Tillman who forced it through.

    Well said. Hopefully Wood is a step back in the right direction.

    For you hating Harden takes precedence over hating anyone else, even Westbrick. I mean, as long as we're on the subject of delusional agendas.

    Harden averaged over 30 with Russ here. Beal can and will do the same.

    The fit with Wall isn't much better. He's a similar player to Russ: a quick, ball-dominant guard who is a poor shooter. And that's assuming he's even healthy.

    At least we got a late 1st rounder out of it, I guess.

    I get it. Y’all hate Russ. He selfish. He can’t shoot. He sucks. He has no IQ. Blah blah

    all I know Russ was the pg for a top 3 mvp candidate for back 2 back years. So why would Beal not be happy with Russ? Beal couldn’t even win 30 games in the East as the man. I can’t imagine if Russ was still in OKC who play in the west btw only won 27 games with Russ averaging 30 lol

    some of y’all delusional thinking this trade is even lol and some of y’all mentally insane if y’all think Hou won this trade lol
    For the last 2 off seasons the pg position was downgraded. Also at no point in their careers was Wall better than Russ. Dude ain’t played in 2 years because of a Achilles and still thought the team should built around him and not Beal. A known party boy that gets high af. Don’t be in shape at times Throws up gang signs. Lol that contract lol

    bu bu but we got a draft pick lol
    Forgetting that the pick is more protected than the president of the United States lol

    Wall shot 37% and 44% on catch and shoot open 3s in 2016-17 and 2017-18, compared to Russ shooting 29% last year...that’s a pretty big difference. At least you actually have to guard Wall at the three point line. Teams aren’t going to leave him open and beg him to shoot like they did with Russ.

    Not with Russ in total control of the offense. Plus harden is the greatest scorer of this generation. He could average 30 in his sleep playing with a bunch of janitors as his teammates.

    haha not really i don't even give a **** about nba. just watch it here and there now for entertainment. if not for all that corruption and catering to big markets, lakers wouldn't even have close to half of those championships. but keep bragging on those rings as if you earned them yourself and believe in a league that is as pure as wwe
