Okc stars left via trade or FA but the Thunder roster looks well for the future even if Okc trades Chris Paul

Russell needs to pass more and be the ball handler to kick out to Harden Green Turker etc Harden needs to spot up on shots these year watch out for Houston

That goes to show, that:
A team with 3 supertars WHO ARE ALL DEMANDING FOR THE BALL cannot win championships.
Fast forward to 2019:
The Houston rockers sign Russell Westbrook and traded away Chris Paul
Can Westbrook play with Harden or will these 2 ballhogs collapse the Rockets' franchise?🧐

Your assessment of why Presti let Harden go is flawed. OKC was already and has been in the luxury tax. Signing Harden would've pushed them deep enough to pay even heftier percentages, thats true, but every team knew a new cba was coming up and that means more money. I clean carpets for a living and I knew that. Other teams were making signings that were not economically viable. I believe Presti believed doing his job was easy and didn't take into account that millionaires don't want to be stuck in Oklahoma. He thought he could out smart losing Harden with analytics and another high draft pick. Adams is decent, but refuses to dunk and misses alot of shots 3 inches out. Martin could never match any facet of Hardens game. Presti gambled and failed. You fail to mention that OKC picked up a hefty contract from Martin as well.

If it didn't work for CP3 in HOU, I don't know how it's gonna work for Westbrook.

They are cursed by the Seattle Supersonics. OKC didn't earn anything and they deserve nothing.

Good question for David Stern and Adam Silver? The answer is their kids and grand kids had to have extravagant barmitzvahs. Next question.

Even if somehow OKC get Lebron, OKC will never win NBA Championship. Because the curse of Seatle can not be broken

To put things in perspective.
What’s happened to OKC, would be as if Golden State with their lineup never won any rings.

This was put together very well, I felt like I was watching one of those documentaries on the discovery channel. But yes this is crazy to thing they had 3 Future MVPS on the same time that got drafted 3 straight. RIP OKC/Seattle this will hurt for the next 5 to 10 years if they don't win a title!

We blew it hard and KD blew it even harder he could’ve stayed with us and we could’ve beat the warriors, That being said I spent a long time sick at my stomach at Kevin leaving but ultimately he gave us a long time and I just have to believe he had to due what he thought was best for himself. Still joining the team that beat you just to win championships that’s hard to look past

Uninspired coaching by Scott Brooks and then Billy Donovan. Some kind of consistent offensive system was needed instead of hero ball.

Instead of KD giving the Warriors the conference finals he could’ve won the series and went to the finals to try to win his first ring and then went to the Warriors just a thought 🤷🏽‍♂️

@Koh Smoger never. Russel, Harden, Durant are guys who come into the league every 10 yrs

He either traded or let all of those players go. I don’t care how great the future of OKC is they will never have three guys with the talent to be mvp with a defensive player of the year candidate on their team again.

yes the thunder drafted these three players but if you actually know basketball, you would realize they would not work well together. all three need to dominate the ball. this is why durant left in the first place. harden and westbrook might work in houston because their coach stressess isolation but iso system doesn't win anything.
