GSW were on the rise but the west is now stacked
OKC letting harden go is biting them and lots of teams right now, terrible decision
Are you kidding me? None of those things are true.
LA will suck for a year then get Kobe back with a grip of cap space. If they are smart they will work out a wy to release then resign Kobe next year giving them stupid cap room starting now. LA is still LA and that means a lot to many players. As long as Short Bus sits down and shuts the fuck up they should be fine.
Dallas has a good owner, lots of money a good coach and a good GM. Hard to see how they can't rebuild on the quick.
OKC did not "let" Harden go, they could not have afforded the contrct he was going to demand. They could have gone all in last year, and maybe they should have but they got what they thought they could for him while the getting was good. Personally Harden for a few unprotected 1st round picks might have been better then KM but whatever.
As for GSW, they just cut serious bait and added a very good player who fits their team and style of play. More depth, with Iggy being a super sub like Manu at his best or Barnes coming of the bench for a much stronger rotation. He also makes Jack expendable and can handle the ball, letting Curry play off the ball.
