    There is a lot of fans that assume Westbrook is a bad team player but you will never find an ex-teammate say anything bad ever about him.

    I think he's just so intimidating that players bend to his will but you never hear guys even sneak diss him, it's always love for Westbrook as if he'd take a bullet for them. I'm not sure he has a bad history with coaches either and I think if he just wanted to stat pad for the rest of his career he'd stay in OKC, no one would have been mad at him, in fact would have gotten praise as being one of the few players to stay loyal to a team. The fact that he'd come here of all places and not like to some other team to be the 'man' tells me he's about winning. If he said "Send me to the Magic or Suns..." I think the trade gets done and he would be able to stat pad again and make either team relevant...but he literally decided to team up with a guy that finished 2nd in the MVP race last year and a top 5 player...

    I think for this reason he's going to come here motivated. He hears the talk of him being selfish and not a winner, should be interesting. I think he's coming here to prove he can win.

    Well done!

    Now where is Pat Beverley? I want him back badly than ever as I don't want him to fight Westbrook anymore. :D

    I'm very excited by this trade. I don't know how people can be mad about it.

    Disagree. OKC should have given the Rockets a pick of two. Not two picks and two pick swaps from the Rockets.

    I don’t hate the CP3 for Westbrook trade. Just hating that the Rockets were dumb enough to believe they needed to pay a superstar price for maybe the worse contract in the league for maybe the most risky player in the league.

    Tells me all day long Daryl does not plan on being here longer than another year or two which tells me Tillman is really as bad of an owner as I initially thought. Insanely terrible trade and we’ll be regretting this one for a decade.

    (Hope I’m wrong)

    Westbrook is going to change Houston fans opinion of him as Rivers did. H

    KD should have signed here. Sigh. Neymar is going back to Barca why can't KD, and hanging out with Kryie is a losing deal.

    Lulz.. you can hate Westbrook like I have. Hell I thought CP3 was a POS before he came here. Embrace it man. It’s reality and Westbrook is a huge upgrade over CP3.

    Trying to find a way to like this deal, not able.

    At the very least we should have gotten Galo as well

    WB
    Harden
    Tucker
    Galo
    Capela

    No, Kevin Love is slow because of his injuries.

    Really still processing this. I know Cp3 was on the decline but he was great. I wish the best for him. I didn't like Westbrook much as a player before but now obviously I will. Still excited to watch Harden and Westbrook run together again, we should be more fun to watch at the least.

    Agree with that....

    But I kind of want to see Westbrook and Capela now. Also Capela will now average 3 rebounds a game going forward. Lol.
