    DeMarcus Cousins, Danny Green, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo, and AD are all gonna be c-walking with LeBron. The Warriors are doomed.

    I almost got it right.

    My mistake was using logic and reason. KD gave up millions to go play for a shitty team. Shitty team aside, he gave up guaranteed money and he will be coming off an injury that will likely make him, at best, 80% of the player he was. For shit sake, what was he thinking? I think I'm giving Kawhi a pass. He left money on the table (again), but living in another country would be tough. Plus he's still young and healthy.

    I'm glad the Heat didn't get Westbrook

    Rumors are circulating fast that OKC is about to flip CP3 to Miami for picks..... OKC is running the team like they're playing NBA2K in GM mode

    As long as it’s picks and not including Tyler Herro. That kid is Chris Mullen with athletic ability.

    I wanted him to re-sign in Toronto, but I'm neither surprised nor upset that he left. Toronto traded for him to make a finals push. It literally went as well as it could have.

    He would have sold lots of tickets with Butler in Miami, but still get bounced early in the playoffs.

    Over reaction by The Rockets, IMO. They could’ve rested Paul a bit during the regular season and have it one more try in the playoffs.

    They came closest in the 2017-2018 season. They lost in 7 games to the Warriors but were arguably a better team.

    Their collapse this year signaled that a change was necessary.

    Could be right. That damn hammy cost them a ring. They had a great opportunity this year when KD went down and couldn’t get it done. I still would’ve rolled the dice with the current squad instead of picking up Westbrook.

    Chris Paul, while a step slower, his game compliments Jimmy Butler's better than Westbrook in Miami..... I just wonder what number CP3 will get, since his Banana Boat friend Dwayne Wade won't let him take his old number. Hell, with Amare and Monta Ellis trying for a comeback with the Lakers, don't be surprised if D-Wade decides to return for one more year to play with his boy Paul, and Butler. Miami could be a surprise team behind Philly, Milwaukee, and Boston this year.

    Wade joked before the Butler signing that if Jimmy came to Miami then he (Wade) would come out of retirement.

    And yeah I can't see anybody wearing that number 3. The team will probably retire it.

    Paul has had a phenomenal career, but he also has a grating personality. It was obvious that Harden was sick of him last season.

    There has been talk for years that he is toxic in the locker room.
