    Can anyone name a player with a greater talent:underachiever due to douche-bag ratio than cp3? There have been other underachievers due to drugs or lack of passion once they get paid, but by all accounts cp3 works his tail off and has passion for the game, but his Whiny, cheap, dirty douchiness costs him every time.

    And I thought Houston games could not be more unwatchable ... Westbrook is a poor fit with Haren to say the least

    Harden, Russ and coach Mike. We're about to see some crazy ball :D
    The fit is "poor" to say the least but HOU still got better. Healthy ballhog/chucker Russ >>> always injured Paul. West is freakin crazy.

    So they get rid of Westbrook for Paul for 3-4 years just for 2 first round picks...

    Presti is DUMB like a rock it seems. WTF

    You’re not wrong about the health thing, unless Westbrook finally starts to break down, he’s played 80 games 3 of the past 4 seasons and 73 last year.

    Presti either got owned or was trying to do right by Westbrook.

    CP should have needed those picks to be moved for garbage, much less a guy who averages a triple double.

    Presti has the best image of a failing executive I have ever seen.

    The guy drafted 3 mvps in 3 consecutive years and also got PG... And has nothing to show for it.

    All these late first rounders he accumulated will turn into glorified scrubs... Yawn.

    IMO the guy has been a failure overall.

    Square peg, round hole in Houston.

    Definitely going to be interesting.

    And personally as an East Coaster, I'm going to hate watching us play Houston, cause the games are going to take 5 hours with all the goddamn free throws.

    ...just thought of the vid of Durant asking for the ball while Westbrook pounded the rock for 18 something seconds. Now there's Harden. :)

    I'll say this...

    you do that trade any day of the week and twice on sundays.

    Westbrook is 4 years younger and just flat out better. Paul was a better fit but given his empty tank AND persistent chemistry issues...its a no brainer IMO to do that deal.

    Its way more puzzling for Presti...but I assume he wanted Russell to pick his destination, which would be a puzzling but classy move.
