    Not surprising. Getting a meeting with Durant should be considered a success. It'll probably happen because he's boys with Harden, but that's it.

    Ainge will still need to trade for an all star to be a serious contender for KD imo, only Durant and (eventually) Horford would not be enough to beat the Cavs anyway...if Ainge plans to convince Durant with something like Ezeli (?), Horford, Durant, Bradley, Thomas i think it's goin to be a very long shot for him...but at the end Ainge is really good, and he does have a lot of assets, i think he'll go all in with Butler or Boogie at the draft, he needs to acquire a top player as soon as he can.

    I don't like Fournier at PG but I do like your idea of Horford and Batum - high IQ two-way players. Need to change the culture of this team.

    I do like the idea of Fournier though - agree that he can ball.

    I think a Rubio/Rondo type would fit well next to Harden if we had a big who can pass like Noah (maybe not now with injuries) or Horford.

    You guys bash harden for low efficiency and poor defense . What did durant shoot last playoff game when his team lost to Dallas ? This guy had a severe foot injury and is almost 7 feet tall . I bet it doesn't work out . Another great scorer , but not the passer that harden is . Also not a great defender by any means .

    If you grant that harden > wb , we still aren't better than okc without more additions . Ibaka kills our 3rd best player . Adams > Dwight . Even with ibaka and Adams and Westbrook and a sg specifically in for d , okc's defense is nothing special . Do not want KD .

    This guy is on the first stage of loss and grief.

    Denial.

    Ignoring the "Do not want KD" (who is one of the top 5 nba players in the league), why do you feel the need to space your punctuation marks?

    Typing on phone is somewhat tricky for perfect punctuation structure .

    I am in a habit of pressing space after a word when I type . So it is just natural that I usually hit space before the up arrow and then the punctuation .

    7/33 FG with 7 turnovers the last night. Literally, one of the worst playoff performances ever. Lost to short-handed, injury-ridden Mavericks at his home court.

    Durant should've been the focus of media criticism, not Harden.

    Also that's a strange thing to bring up . Did it make it that hard to read and understand ?

    Durant gets a pass more than any other star in the league. He was awful last night.

    The hillarious thing is that you know this will absolutely change if he comes to Houston . They will say things like Houston has added another great flopper . Things like defense will be criticized .

    Just like Chris Bosh and other big name free agents, Durant is not coming to Houston

    I love Kevin Durant but I am not sure we need another super star. I think we need more guys that come to work and do their jobs consistently every day. Not too much, just what their position is designed for.
    My offseason priority would be Mike Conley or Jeff Teague.
    Secondly, I would like to see us get some big men that can rebound, play defense, and catch a pass (even below their shoulders).
    Terry, Smith, Brewer, and Jones must GO....

    never post here ...like ever again. This is so full of contradictions (putting your previous posts into context) that all you can do is just stop digging your hole.
