for which side? seriously.

They dumped Paul’s contract for Westbrook who can still play and some damn picks. No young player. It’s hilarious to me.

It’ll be fun to watch Houston if anything. The west is open. Westbrook/Harden/Capela/Gordon. I mean, a few injuries to the other teams and they could make a run. Plus Westbrook and harden have a few more prime years in them. Scared money don’t make money.

Morey doesn't care. Russ won't be there at that contract's end. This is what he does. I forget who he signed before Dwight and it was a poison pill contract i think, and everyone said it was horrible and no one would pay that he was stuck. Then he got Dwight. Got out of that. THen CP3 and paid the guy. Then he gets Westbrook. Idk who is next but Morey stay trying to rotate into a name player.He will trade someone and get a pick here and there, then boom do this all over again.

Dream is a big man and most big men back in the day demanded rebounds. If this is some shade at westrook blame the big men for not saying “no mf, I got it”

I am crazy to think somehow the Spurs are a dark horse to get in for Paul? It's tough right now to see how the salaries would match up right now without adding one of LA or Demar. But Pop is about to be on his last stand isnt he? Paul, Demar and LA would give him some sort of last stand. Could see Paul being ok playing for the Spurs.

I don't know. I sort of see them as a dark horse for Wall too. They could wait him out for a year. Pop gotta be at the end soon. Figured they at least give it one last go.
The hero Orlando deserves is out there somewhere, Dwight was not the one we needed. So we will hunt for him...

Remember when that snake Morey said all was well between CP3, Harden and the organization.

Winner - The team who gets Paul on a vets min contract (probably Lakers or Clippers) after he forces a buyout.

The timing was pretty good for them, Clippers and Houston overpaid in both deals


Wait you realize that the Rockets would’ve had to use a pick or 2 just to get rid of CP3. They instead turned him into Russel Westbrook at the expense of 2 likely later first rounders. They made out really nicely. Top 3 team in the west. Maybe even top 2

Conspiracy theorizing...

The Rockets don't want Russ. They want Jimmy Butler, and Russ is a big salary piece that we know the Heat were interested in. Look out for Morey shadow recruiting over the next few months and having the media stir up drama in Miami so, come December, Butler has already given up and forces a trade to Houston.
