KD left GSW because rings no longer matter to him.

Now he wants the Nets to trade for Harden to supersize their ring chances?

I would love to see the look on Kyrie's face if the Nets sent Irving to Houston for Harden. Karma!!!

Rings matter. How he wins it became the issue. He felt he deserved more credit for taking us to back to back championships. But we all know he's thin skinned and the narrative that he joined a championship team and we really didn't need him always irked him.

Also he wanted the ball in his hands more. So while he initially liked the ball movement offense, he likely didn't love it near the end.

I thought Harden and Westbrook wanted out of Houston just because it's a *** show but apparently there's more to it.

Report: James Harden, Russell Westbrook want out of Houston due to owner's Trump support

Get ready for Deandre Ayton to be a strong player for MIP. Mark it down!

He's going to beast playing with Chris Paul.

News flash: Most owners are Republicans. Most Rich Democrats are Republicans.
Looks at the hypocritical actions of Pelosi and Gavin Newsome, going to parties and ignoring their own tight restrictions.

That may be true but I don't see all the other players trying to bail from their teams over it.

I believe you mean most Rich Democrats are fiscally conservative - a debatable statement when you look at where rich democrats live (NYC, SF, LA, SEA) certainly less debatable than the statement you made. Even if one were to agree with your assertion about most owners being republicans (as opposed to conservative economically, liberal socially) that is certainly different than supporting the dumpster fire that is donald trump.

Ayton is legit and potential MIP is a great call.

Not debatable, their actions have spoken for them already. Nice try trying to pull Trump into the conversation.
Explain the actions of the ones I mentioned..

I feel no need to explain the actions of POS politicians. Pelosi and Newsome are "most democrats?" I would say they're typical politicians - hypocrites, and that goes across party lines. I did not pull Trump into this conversation, your news flash pulled republicans and rich democrats into the "houston owner's support of trump does not sit well with houston's prominent african american players" conversation.

yes, historically, most nba owners have been republicans. I'm pretty sure the new wave of owners changes that a bit (frittita being the exception, from what I can tell. if you support trump, however, and own a basketball team, be prepared to get blowback from your players. is this current blowback genuine or is it cover to get out of town? different question.

I took exception to your "most rich democrats are republicans" point and your examples of Pelosi and Newsome are not relevant to "most rich democrats." most rich democrats live on the coasts and in major urban centers. These places have consistently voted for higher taxes, more gun control, less restrictions on abortions, etc etc and have been democratic strongholds for everyone from schoolboard member to u.s. president. Not sure how NYC, SF and SEA (you can add Austin, if you want) are republican and I don't think anyone will argue that "most rich democrats" live in these (and similar) cities.

Schedule format released. Looks like the Pacific division is only playing the Northwest twice.
