    If you get all of that, but have to take Danilo Gallinari, was it really worth it? It's like gaining the world but losing your soul in the process.

    For a one year rental that's an all time kind of trade. Hate OKC all you want, but Presti has been amazing as a GM, even including getting fleeced for Harden

    If he stays healthy he’s going to be a great player. His skill set is amazing and his basketball IQ is on another level. OKC has done an incredible job with all these trades. I think they will be a contender very soon.

    We literally have missed out on generatioinal talent in 2 straight drafts......Cade over Green, and Chet and Banchero over Jabari....Jury is out on Amen......but damnit.

    That trade might have swung 5-6 championships though, it's VERY possible okc wins 4-5 rings if they keep harden/kd together. If they were willing to trade russ for a haul back in the day they could've been an all time dynasty.

    Well, if you want to talk about players that we didn't get the chance to draft, I think Wembanyama over Amen is about as safe as a bet you can make...
