James Harden and Kevin Durant talk to Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose about how close they were before the trade, how they keep in touch, and how the situation is like they got divorced and Durant got to keep Russell Westbrook.

The Thunder's roster seems to decline more and more each year ever since they let Harden go.

lol, Jalen is ready to bust their kneecaps in case they want to run away.

 

Something off about him and always wanting to keep a baseball bat around.

:laughing: that's why Jalen carries a bat. Texting and keeping in touch with each other, also checking one another stats good for them.

OKC traded the wrong guy.  That one move will haunt the franchise for a very long time.

Totally agree LakersGeezer.

 

Said it when it happened, and still say it now.  Trading Harden killed any chance that/this current group of Thunder players have at winning a ring.

Not that simple, dude. They're a small market and had to make a decision on whether to keep Ibaka or Harden and after Harden's pathetic finals performance, they chose Ibaka. It's too damn easy to be Captain Hindsight and discuss decisions already made. At the time they were looking at a western conference that had Bynum, Z-bo and Duncan, just to name a few, which is why they kept Perk, who also is a big part of the defensive culture of the team.

 

Last season, the Thunder were the best team in the League based on win-margin and strength of schedule and if Westbrook didn't get injured there is a good chance that OKC could have gone to the finals and even won, so perhaps it wasn't that bad of a decision.

 

But obviously, had they known how things turned out, perhaps they would've kept him. 

 

I guess it's payback from when Portland made a bad call on Oden, which landed them Durant?

Give me a break. I'm sick of hearing this complete BS. Miami had not only beaten the Thunder consecutively dating back to the Finals, but dominated them as well as last season. In fact, the final scores weren't even indications of just how much of beatdowns they were given. I saw all of the games with my own two eyes. If anything, Miami had gotten' even better since that Finals team of theirs that went up against OKC and OKC had gotten' worse despite what regular season stats or numbers might show against other opposition, Miami's all that mattered and they've destroyed OKC for a while now. They're in their heads.

Pacers was close. They just messed up game 1.  But now that pacers have granger and scola they have the best chance at beating the Heat than any other team. Unless Greg Oden becomes the 10/10 type of guy then 3peat for the heat.

 If Kevin Durant goes to Houston, Dwight won't feel like a winner anymore.
