    You guys are talking about the John Wall who played over two seasons ago.
    John Wall hasn't played in two years. If our hopes are based on memories of what Wall and Cousins were ... we are doomed.
    If Stone doesn't have an ace in his sleeve ... this has been one of the worst trades in a long time and Harden is next out.

    Russell Westbrook is the Carson Wentz of the NBA.

    yet chris paul had the lowest 3pt% of all the rotational players outside of Capela and Nene in that series.

    PJ: 48%
    Rivers: 45%
    Shumpert: 38%
    Green: 37%
    Harden: 35%
    Gordon: 35%
    $40 Million dollar man: 31%

    We could swing EG/House and picks for a legit 5 or another 3&D wing, i feel like thats competitive.

    A healthy Wall
    Harden
    House
    Wood
    Gordon + Picks

    Not really. I think it’s designed to cover up for the Paul trade.

    We now have Detroit and Washington future picks that have a good shot at conveying 4-5 years from now, the ones that we will desperately need once James is gone.

    Stone is thinking about the rebuild. I like it. Got a pick. Plus, if all the dominoes fall right, this could be a fun team to watch. But this move is not so much about winning next year. IMO.

    My main concern is Wall's health. If he's fully healthy, the floor is a lateral move, the ceiling is much higher.

    If last season was a disaster then so was the season before it.

    nobody could create their shot outside of harden and cp3 in 2018, but that aint stop cp3 from being dominant either?

    I guess being a "floor general" chasing triple doubles with the ball in his hands 90% of the time really is THAT important to him.

    Wall used to be one of my favorite players and he was a rocket KILLER, I don’t think he’ll be anything like he used to but maybe, just maybe, he’ll be a positive and harden will want to stay
