I still prefer to keep CP3 for 3 years crying at home because he's living in OKC but if we have trade him, sounds ok.

I mean, seriously, he still goes to the mall?

Is this guy cool? He's always shouting out Westbrook and other Thunder players but I can't tell if he actually knows anyone. Seems like a wannabe influencer.

Wow my initial reaction to guaranteeing Nader is why but then I remember how different our mindset is now and the question is why not.

I'm not clear on what his level of influence is.

He's a credentialed beat reporter lol. He seemed to have a pretty good relationship with PG and got info on his shoe releases and such early.

It dawns on me, the Russ trade isn't even official yet (as of this post he's still on the Thunder website on the "roster" page. So it actually makes sense that we haven't heard anything else on Paul being traded by the Thunder yet. I bet once that trade goes final we'll hear something on Paul within 3-4 days.

Maybe they are trying to make a 3 team trade. This means the 60 day clock hasn't started on when the Thunder can re-rout Paul.

I wish the beat writers could get more info on this kind of stuff.

Behind door #1: Abdel Nader
Behind door #2: ???

Give me door #2. Nader is 26, he's been bad, he's more expensive than a UDFA, etc. Why not roll the dice on a 20/21 year old G League type and hope to get lucky?
