TRUE LOVE - Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar.
i think harden will be a sign and trade deal in the future. i think that ibaka is more valuable to the team then harden. but okc could go another away and send westbrook away however unlikely.
right now they can afford everyone and they will compete for the title for two years with the current lineup. i really couldn't see them making a move right now that could damage that.
I'm really trying to like the thunder and appreciate what they're doing. But, I just can't help but, have dislike toward them and everyone who plays for them.
I suppose it's because of the way they got the team are most of the reasons I have a distaste for the NBA.
I realize they have some great players that I'd love to have on my team. But, I just can't embrace it.
I suppose it's the same reasons I don'tvlike memphis. It's just I have more of a distaste because it's more recent.
OKC can wait till next year, when both are RFA & "deal with it/match any contracts". It will likely cost you more $$$ (both are young & improving), while at the same time (by delaying giving them extensions) you are in essence telling both of them that they are not as important as Durant & Westbrook (both of those players received extension offers early).
We all know how "sensitive NBA stars are" when it comes to respect or lack off. In the nutshell Ibaka is a "big" & thus gets an extension & Harden becomes a Raptor or ?????
Maybe Eric Gordon (IMO similar to Harden -Gordon might be a better shooter, but Harden can play 1 or 2 and is more durable) will tell us what market for Harden will be next year. As for Ibaka -see D Jordan, with Ibaka being a lot more of an offensive player.
What would you give up for Harden? -DD, this years first and ??? -or is that too much?
In the ideal world our team could do this,
Trade Calderon for Lowry
Sign Dan Green
Draft Jeremy Lamb
Sign Omer Asik
Draft Tyshawn Taylor and Alex English
And move DDR to the 3
Our team would look like this
It could and probably would make the playoffs
lol, plus that team would barely be better than this year's squad.

Just place jj Amir and Forbes at reserves at sf pf and c
I guess that'd be stupid to you guys as well
I do not think AI is right here but the Raptors could help send him elsewhere.The 76ers are "looking to move" Andre Iguodala, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.
The Sixers have been flirting with an Iguodala trade for the last few seasons. According to Broussard, they now feel that Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner "won't grow to reach their potential as long as Iguodala is there." The defensive stopper and freakish athlete has already been linked to the Warriors and Broussard dangles the idea of a Iguodala for Rudy Gay swap. A deal with the Lakers might also make some sense for both sides.
Oh yes, and consider the source!
I wouldn't flip the pick for iguodala. i like him, but he's well into his prime. If i'm trading the pick for anyone, its someone who's just now getting into their prime.
Because DC's magic pertains to the defensive side of the floor. Not sure if there's "magic" out there to elevate JJ's offensive game to even compare to what Rudy Gay can do offensively. I would even go farther to say that Rudy Gay can average 25+ points per game.
