    its funny how KD free agency is linked to both of these two teams.. Wiz fans already preparing to lure the hometown kid... and Raps fans fantasizing KD to be playing for his fav team growing up..

    i think 2016 will decide which one of these teams will be the powerhouse of the East.
    Damn, the Wiz could be our secondary rivals, behind the Nets.

    Hate to burst anyone's bubbles. But i can't see KD going anywhere. He's like a hero there in OKC. I also remember an interview a couple of years ago where KD mentioned he likes to spend the rest of his career in OKC.

    And really, if you're KD, why would you leave?? OKC is a perennial championship contending team. He loves it there. The people there loves him. And he's going to get paid, he's going to get a good offer from the Thunder for sure once he becomes a FA. So why would you leave?

    If you want a big name free agent. You target Kevin Love.

    He'll be a hero wherever he goes. Why would LeBron leave Cleveland? He was a hero there, he was their saviour! I think any player with a brain would refrain from bad mouthing his current employer and alienating the fan base by saying "yeah, OKC is nice, but I don't know if I want to stay here forever." Of course he's going to say he'd like to stay.

    Also, OKC is a perennial championship contender, but a lot of teams would be too with KD on the roster. And he knows that. Any fan base where he played would love him - hell we love him and all he's done for us so far is say he liked the raps as a kid (and light us up for 51 points). He'll get paid anywhere he goes, and money will be thrown at him by all 30 teams. He'd leave for a better situation, he'd leave because he doesn't see the light at the end of the tunnel, he'd leave to get to wear a different uniform, hell there are tons of reasons why he'd leave. The OKC ownership is pretty cheap (they weren't willing to pay to keep harden) and it remains to be seen if they'll be able to keep Westbrook, Ibaka and KD. Not saying he's coming to the raptors but if you're him you're seriously listening to every other offer come free agency.

    *championship contending* offers, which i highly doubt the raptors will be in that position in 2016. hell, it looks like we can't even get vince carter back since he wants to stay with the mavs now.

    Thats just it though, any team with an already solid core will be a championship contender with Kevin durant on their roster. He knows that.

    Is OKC a championship contender without him? That's doubtful.

    Heck, if they get Love then they might actually become attractive to Durant.

    The only reason OKC is a perennial contender is because they've had Durant and Westbrook since the team first existed but they're a small market organization which means they don't have enough money to surround those guys with more talent which is why the couldn't hold o to Harden.
    Durant made those comments a few years ago when he was on a high and everything was happy. Now though, he hasn't won yet a.d he's hungry and if OKC can't get players to help him out so he doesn't have to drop fifty every night I think he'll eventually start peaking over the fence at greener grass.

    Why would Colangelo sign LeBron when he had Bargnani. They are both natural power forwards with inside-outside game.

    Just to reply to the topic, so far John Wall & Bradley Beal look amazing, and now that they've gone farther in the playoff's, you could argue that Lowry/DeRozan are running 2nd.

    Not sure how Beal and Wall are "looking amazing" when Wall bricks everything in sight. 0,34%FG with 0,182 from 3. Pacers are playing off him and since he can't shoot, he attempts crazy passes and his turnovers are going up.

    I'd much rather have DeRozan and Lowry.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    Lebron plays small forward and if you had the chance to either have bargnani or lebron. Only a complete dumbass would take bargnani.
