Imagine if OKC didn't have to trade for Kendrick Perkins by giving Jeff Green and they had Tyson Chandler instead.

Jeff Green would still be with OKC, Tyson would be a beast on defense and would probably be being paid similar to Kendrick now, and Harden leaving (which he or Jeff Green would have to cause somebody's got to go) wouldn't be so regretful.

did you read the zach lowe piece where he covers team revenues? OKC makes made near $30,000,000.00 net last season.

championships are nice and all, but like Edmorel probably appreciates, OKC owners probably just care even more about the cold hard cash they're making probably on a sweetheart tax free lease, publicly funded stadium, and non luxury tax budget in a small market.

the fans are still happy there's even a team there that has two super duper stars and is in contention every year.

yeah though OKC basically had a dynasty they squandered because they have a GM who's a little trigger happy when it comes to making *deals....

*what about the almost harden for bradley beal and unprotected 1st round pick trade with washington? OMG they could've had bradley beal on the 2013-2014 OKC team?! ffffuuuu.gif

Don't worry. Beal and KD are joining forces in 2016

WTF OKC? I read the piece but missed the team revenue part. $30 mill is ridiculous

I feel like they could have signed a long term contract with Tyson while injured and backed him up with nick collision. Jeff green didn't really improve til last year so they could've kept him cheap.

Well hindsight 20/20 and back then they didn't know but the what ifs are fun

I don't understand why Drummond, Monroe, and josh smith can't coexist. You don't need to play all of them at the same time. Move Monroe to the bench and alternate between the 4/5, Drummond as a 5, and josh smith as a 4. They can all play 32 minutes. The josh smith as a 3 just cramps up spacing and is a terrible idea cuz he can't shoot the perimeter shots. It's so stupid and cheeks is a fucking retard.

No more "if the Wizards score over 100 points and win" you get 50% off your pizza deals....

Anyone watching the Blue vs. White showcase tonight? It's like the All-Star Game, but players will actually be trying. D-Rose has apparently been tearing up USAB training camp so far. Good to see him playing like his old self again.

supposedly plumlee will make the team over cousins...
post #17725 of 27225
If so, it's because Cousins is a 6'11" baby with a shitty attitude. Dude is much too talented to be carrying himself like that.
post #17726 of 27225
from i understand plumlee is actually just owning it and cousins hasn't even acted out or anything
post #17727 of 27225
Still think Rose playing at all this summer is a bad idea but him making the team would be the best case scenario at this point. I was reading about his shitty inner circle compounded with how much he just wants play makes this whole ordeal a little more understandable.

well recently ive seen some Cheeks games and he seems like Westbrook of 80s:happy: (well okay maybe he jacks up a bit less stupid shots)

I agree with you that Josh is better playing 4, he creates mismatches because he is faster than most PFs
while he can guard them all. On 3 spot he neither has the shot or the handles to be really effective.
