Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

Don't even bother looking up. That pick can't be converted until OKC gets Nuggets pick. And after OKC gets it, 2 years need to pass by. So 2025 is earliest, 2026 most realistic, 2027 latest.

The protections to the Denver pick is top 5 for each year and if it doesnt convert in 2027 we lose the pick

I was watching some random video on youtube to figure that Justice Winslow , Stanley Johnson and Hezonja, all 3 "big 3 wings" from 2015 draft are either out of nba or will be out of nba in matter of months.
Damn

Exhibit F of why trading for undervalued players needs to be considered. None of those were considered bad picks. All were high lottery picks.

Wiggins at #1 "no brainer", Fultz at #1 "no brainer"...c'mon WeHam look for the steal of the year out there and swap that high pick that ends up being the next big stiff. There's not a lot of guys that aren't potentially available for a top 3 pick, especially if you're willing to add more (Den pick, CHI pick, TPE, Bamba, RJ, Expiring Harris, TRoss...). So much more exciting than "3 years from now he might be good".

Just reminds me that everyone has their "it guy" from a draft. I remember I loved Rodney Carney and Jabari Parker. Not everyone could live up to the hype. Makes someone LBJ so much more special.

Houston considering firing the coach; unrelated - perhaps - the Rockets is on a 2-game winning streak.

Does Stephen Silas know his job is to lose games? Where is the winning narrative in this???

The Houston Rockets currently has the third longest win streak in the NBA. Are we living a matrix glitch?

Oklahoma City loses by 73. Shattering the NBA record for largest margin of defeat set way back in 1991 by the Miami Heat.

The upsetting thing is that it could've just as easily been us.

RIP OKC.
