Harden went God Mode.

That trade will go down in history as a massive blunder, the OKC could've had the West on lock for the next decade.

What Oklahoma City got in return:

Kevin Martin - Good, but an unrestricted free agent this summer
Jeremy Lamb - Potential, but provides nothing right now.
TOR 1st - TOR making it look worse, though OKC only gets in 2013 if 4-14. TOR 5 games out of playoffs.
DAL 1st - Top 20 protected, won't get for a while
CHA 2nd - High 2nd, but in a weak draft

I would be happy if we could flip one of our assets for jeremy lamb.

He would def get minutes here and has alot of talent. smooth SG with long wingspan that can create for himself.

I think the Spurs are the only team that legitimately has a shot to beat the Heat in a 7 game series. Unfortunately, I think the Thunder matchup very well with the Spurs because of their athleticism. It's very interesting. I just don't know if the Spurs have the gas to get to the finals.

From what I remember during last year's WC finals were many questionable whistles in favor of OKC. If only San Antonio can get a few in their favor this time they have a good chance to beat the Thunder. Also, I think the loss of Harden will hurt them more against the Spurs. I don't remember how many WC finals games I watched last year but I remember Harden going bonkers.

Either way, I'm fully rooting for San Antonio to win it all.

The Spurs never cease to amaze me. If they can avoid injuries to their big three they could push the Heat in the finals, big if though.

You know whats effed up?

Randy Foye
Corey Brewer
Al Jefferson

All recent wolves now in our division enjoying post season success. I'm shocked the Suns didn't make the playoffs so Beasley and Johnson would round the insult out.

Your post made me remember the Cookie Monster a.k.a. The Rhino a.k.a. Craig Smith. I was wondering where he's playing now and I was surprised he's out of the NBA already :(

Randy Wittman's team is playing above .500 basketball since Wall's return.

The Wizards have gone 11-9 in their past 20 games, claiming wins over Oklahoma City, Denver, New York, Brooklyn and the Los Angeles Clippers. During that stretch, the Wizards are outscoring teams, 95.1-92.1, shooting 46.1 percent from the floor and 40.3 percent from three-point range, and holding opponents to just 42.9 percent shooting.


can you believe that ****? Okafor/Nene frontcourt finally paying dividends too.
Oh, and Martell Webster is starting, playing good defense, and 3rd in the NBA in 3 point percentage and is making a million less than Steamer. OF COURSE
