Wait I thought OKC was a small market team and paying Harden, Durant and Westbrook would be too expensive?

Harden >> George
Durant >>> Carmello

And somehow Sam Presti gets votes for GM of the year, every year. LOL

What is the deal with Felton? How many teams has he been on?  They can't find a better guard than him? Imagine what that team would be like with those stars now? I think Durant will go back there some day (if they can afford him!). Harden has never been a favorite of mine, but I can only imagine the power house they would be with those guys

Oh well,  we will never see it. But we may see KD there. Guilt is a bitch!!!!!

If he doesn't want the role he had in OKC, he wouldn't like joining Boston.

Melo has been playing 14 years and has always been the #1 option, playing SF. Expect him to sign with LAL

Funny, when I heard that Melo was getting bought out, LALakers were the first team I thought of. I will be shocked if that is not here he ends up

I don't expect we need to worry about that

Ditto

OKC Had him playing the 4 but he wanted to play up top and get more touches. Does not play a lick of defense and is mostly concerned about scoring.

It would be a case of subtraction by addition.
