Sorry guys but a dark age has come to OKC. CP3 is a locker room cancer that berates young players and torments teammates with constant verbal jabs and BS. SGA is either going to become REALLY tough, or he's going to get mentally killed. I'm really worried about SGA now.
We're both here in L.A. It just seemed like this was destined. We're supposed to play together."

I guess our collective hope (at least mine is) is that we can flip Paul as soon as possible for whatever (expiring contracts would be nice, two year contracts with a little bit smaller cap hold are okay also).


Btw. I'm shocked.

Good luck to Russ, even though I am not the biggest fan of the Rockets (thanks to Beverly and Paul, who both are gone), I am rooting for them.

Look on the bright side, now we can trade you a better PG and actually give Miami a chance to reach the 2nd round this year.

A cancer who stuck through thick and thin, gave everything to the organization that drafted him, one of the most devoted guys to the community, now he wanted not only just a one last chance to play with his best friend, but also by doing this help speeding up the rebuilding process of OKC to make them a potential player in the summer of 2021?

That's a new definition to the word cancer.
RealGM loves you, Melissa.

I don’t think many people got more frustrated with Russ than me but there is no doubt he was good for the franchise even if the post KD years weren’t as successful as we wanted.

bill cosby is still funny even though he's a scumbag. russell westbrook is still a great dude and icon in the city even though he might have been holding the team back on the court lately.
