You guys want Russ back? 

Post#1 » by Tracymcgoaty » Fri Nov 5, 2021 5:27 am

The trade was a joke i would like our players back now. We weren't serious with that trade so please give them back now.
“Listen man, thank you Kobe for giving me my roses while I’m still here on this earth,” McGrady said. “He was, listen, I came in, I used to stay at this man’s house. I just knew how gifted he was gonna be, And he just brought the best out of me.

Sounds like how we felt early last season wanting Wall back. Don't worry, Russ will play MVP basketball in the last month or two of the season...

But then the postseason will be hell.

Nah dude.. I cant take this anymore it's too much. I hate this man as a player. I'd go as far as to say if i were his teammate i'd probably fight him and get my ass knocked out.

Sheppard wasn’t slick at all. Westbrook wanted out. If Westbrook didn’t ask to her traded, he’d still be a Wizard.

Sometimes it's good to let star players play at GM, because they just might trade themselves.

In the end, he will win you more games than he will loose. But the ride will be interesting and filled with OMG’s and WTF’s. I like the trade even if only to get out of his contract.

At least the Wizards did the right thing. It was the right move to buy Westbrook low and sell him high. A lesser GM could have held on to Westbrook given he has 2 years remaining on his deal.

Tommy was absolutely slick. He had no leverage and he got 3 young vets under 30 on team friendly deals and a first that he turned into a young guard on the end of his rookie contract, an early second pick and Technically dinwidie. So 4 younger vets under 30. That's a damn good trade.

Sure. This trade is equivalent to when LLoyd traded the puppy wagon for the scooter in Dumb and Dumber.

It was a joke with the punchline: "Tag...You're it!"

He is all yours. Do know that we have had the extreme Westbrook experience. Nothingin the middle about his game. Not once has any of our regular posters said, "I sure miss Russell Westbrook".

Seriously, you can see he is all world motor and effort. Great dude.

He would win the fight. That is one thing about that guy.

That is almost my new signature. :-)

If this Wizards team falters a bit I expect Bradley Beal will suggest his own trade.

Westbrook was a legitimate monster for us the second half of last year. He dragged our sorry butts into the playoffs. To give you an idea of how impressive that is, Anzejs Pasecniks, who has since returned to the house of Targaryan, played a bunch of minutes for us. So did Jerome Robinson, who was more of an undead/forehead white walker. Westbrook will get his crap together and the Lakers will be fine. Better than fine, even.

I feel dirty having tried to console a Lakers fan.
Can't say I do. Who else gonna shoot?

Yeah, but you have to take Bertans back

Bertans+KCP. We’d still need to find $14 million to match salaries. You might need to throw in a first or something to sweeten the pot

Ha!

I feel guilty for sorta kinda liking some of the off-court things Lebron has done, like teaming with Bloomberg to help oust the Menace. I liked it better when I could hate without complication.
