If I'm every other GM in the NBA I tell the Warriors to go fuck themselves when they try to trade Bogut

Also if I'm Danny Ainge I'm on the first flight to OKC to find Sam Presti and convince him to take all of Brooklyn's draft picks and a bowl of chowdah for Russell Westbrook

The only people happy about Durant to Oakland are Warriors fans and jilted Sonics fans. This move cements his status as a soft millennial. Joining a team than won a title, won 73 games and went to the Finals again while beating you after trailing 3-1 in a series? How does this move help his legacy? This is softer than LeBron going to Miami.

Yay I get to feel (merely a fraction of) the animosity people had towards LeBron taking his talents to South Beach!

I was thinking odds on him being MVP.

Apparently the Mavs are more than happy to indulge castoffs from Golden State. Barnes and now Bogut.

I have a feeling KD couldn't wait to get away from Westbrook for a while. Erratic and ballhogging with flashes of brilliance doesn't win championships.

OKC should send Westbrook to the Cavs and get it over with.

Let's not forget how OKC basically screwed up majorly in the last few years, at least since the Harden trade. They had the perfect storm of draft picks becoming stars and basically couldn't surround them with minimal talent. This is the team that started Kendrick Perkins in the NBA finals, and Dion Waiters in the conference finals. Also, they are owned by a fracking enthusiast.

NBA 2016 Playoffs & Beyond

Complaints about superteams aside, I see how this improves GSW's offense, but in the long term I don't actually see KD as a guarantee of multiple championships. Their bench depth (the secret sauce of the team) is going to get hit hard and there are only so many shots to go around. Next year, before Curry gets PAID, I could imagine them being unstoppable. After that, we'll see what kind of bench they can piece together.

And KD is not a waste of money, obviously. If you're signing a max player, get the best. But KD certainly doesn't improve GSW the way he did OKC. He's taking a fantastic team and giving them a great option to go to in high pressure situations. He can take over a game and energize a team. So I absolutely get it. But there is a reason why many superteams don't quite pan out and sacrifices will have to be made by GSW to keep four all-stars in place and contributing to their fullest potential.

Did you just overhear what I told my buddy at a BBQ 20 minutes ago and transcribe it? 😀 👍

My question would be when has he ever done this when it really counted?

The soft millenials are screwing up sports. Lame.
