    Wow, Presti is dumb as hell.

    Gonna be funny to watch Harden and Russ share the ball again lol.

    Is every Rockets possession going to start with a Harden/Westbrook jump ball?

    What is wrong with Presti..? CP3 has like $125 Mil left on his Contract. Why would you take that on..?
    On one hand you're stockpiling draft picks for future flexibility & then you take on one of the worst contracts in the League for an aging CP3.. Makes no sense.

    It's three years of a horrendous contract versus four.

    Definition of lose/ lose. CP gonna blow up that locker room real fast, so he can get bought out and move on. RW and Harden honeymoon will likely be very brief.

    I guess, but you can at least still build around Westbrook & he's a legit MVP caliber Player. Cp3 is Toast.
    Don't get me wrong, I couldn't care less.. Just trying to understand this move.

    Rockets fans are pissed, think Morey screwed the franchise up for several years.

    so much talent in the West, but they only have 1 ball lol. Either way, it will be easier for them to move Westbrook than CP3 for sure if needed. CP3's contract vs production was an albatross.

    I guess they won't be moving away from iso ball any time soon, but RW is NOT a good 3 pt shooter.

    Will probably be a good regular season team and have a great record on talent, and then get exposed in the playoffs with good coaching and a more balanced team. I'm going to enjoy watching that implosion and associated team doom lol.

    Houston really doesn't know how to build a team around Harden huh. They kind of had the right idea before they got CP3 and now you pair him with a worst ball hog in Westbrick? GG.

    And man Presti/OKC went from 2 stars to none real quick for no reason. I mean West/PG weren't going to win it all but there goes anyone going to those games now.
