    If you can't escape it, you double down it. Maybe in some weird chaotic way we will iso our way into a championship with Harden and Westbrick iso'ing the earth apart.

    Yeah, but you still would need money left to fill out your roster with undrafted scrubs.

    I don't get the Rob Covington love. Scrub, played good for a bit, got paid money he's not worth IMO.

    He was so unsteady in the playoffs with his shot.

    What’s sad is Morey probably believes this.

    Covington is likely already a Warrior anyway.

    Woj was on the Lowe Post just now and speculated that we may be in the running for Westy

    Westbrook traded to Nets for KD, then OKC shipped KD back to GS for De'angelo Russell. Just to piss off everybody involved lol.

    If he looks okay after returning from injury I would consider vet min for Roberson after he’s bought out.

    If they are working on a deal, the chess instagram picture, woj reporting "may"... I'll believe it when I see it but the whole CP3 thing and how we won't trade them (after we dangled them) and the retweeting of the top starting lineups in basketball. It's becoming a mess.

    He was a DPOY candidate just a year ago, every team in the league would sign him for the vet min. I'd guess he gets a better offer.

    At this point, just do it. Keep as much of the core as possible and take a chance. I'd rather try than see Harden leave in a few years or after next.

    I think you can win a ring with Westbrook but he has to buy in. Unfortunately he’s just a bad shooter. I wouldn’t be surprised if Morey explores something.

    I almost feel bad for the dude, everyone keeps bailing on him.

    @BimaThug

    What assets do we have at this current juncture to give in a potential Westy trade? I've lost count.
