I am amazed the NBA is back in its bubble format.  The teams seem to really be trying like in real games in front of fans, even digital ones.  And in these times, the league, the teams and the coaches

Ok, someone want to give me a brief explanation of why this is good for either team? I don’t see a down side, but can’t figure out why it’s an improvement either. Maybe just to shake things up a little for both guys and get them re-focused?

That I get. But does management think that Harden’s gonna be better with Westbrook? Or does management on the other side think that Paul improves their team over the one they had with Westbrook? If not, why didn’t either or both of these teams go in a different direction than just switching players?

It's amazing how NBA players are allowed to pick and choose their own teammates in order to create super terms. Guess no one needs an NBA GM anymore - another job that has become obsolete.

Weirdly I disagree.   With George leaving what ever window OKC thought they might have had was gone, so you needed to blow the whole thing up, and they managed to go all "processy" and have tons of picks in exchange for swapping 2 aging guards.  Absent his injury issues, CPs game feels like something that has  longer shelf life, and a slower decline, whereas Westbook is AI Mark2.  He could go from all-NBA to out of the league in 2 years. Next year pretty sure it looks better for better for the rockets, but year 2 or 3 I think the trade is way more even.

 

Also Harden + Westbrook could be an epoch making disaster.

Both Harden & Westbrook are great at finding the open man or cutter and getting them the ball. But, in both cases, this only comes from them having the ball to begin with and being prevented from shooting or driving to the hoop themselves. This is not a good match & Westbrook is not what Harden needed to take the championship.

 

As for the other part of the trade, Paul does not make the Thunder better. And his contract is for past performance not current ability. And all the draft choices won’t amount to anything, since none will probably be willing to stay in Oklahoma long enough to build a team with. I mean — if it didn’t work with Durant, Harden & Westbrook....
