  1. Westbrook traded to Rockets

    People go on about Westbrook's ego but he didn't seem to have an issue taking a backseat to Paul George at all. The only reason things swung back towards uber usage Westbook was because both of PG's shoulders seemingly fell off at some point this past season. Russ has always played nice with fellow superstars the worst versions of heroball Russ was moreso when he felt like he had to do it all himself so I don't think it's really a given that he and Harden can't work together. Being paired with something approaching a competent head coach for the first time in his career should probably help some of that along as well.

    What a match. We're lucky we still get to watch these. I really thought Fed was about to choke it away after that missed smash. And then the way Nadal played those match points... just incredible. Predictions for Sunday? My heart says Federer in 5 my head says Djokovic in 4.

    I feel like Peanut is about to have a superstar season and I'm probably getting ahead of myself/drinking the Kool-Aid but I kinda want to see DeCosta get him locked up now before that happens because i think we could get him at a big discount relative to what he's gonna be worth a year from now.
  4. Westbrook traded to Rockets

    Yeah he def didn't pretty much singlehandedly make Steven Adams $100 million
  5. Westbrook traded to Rockets

    Smh I can't believe he didn't let Dennis Schroeder shine like he deserved to.
  6. Westbrook traded to Rockets

    Russ was arguably a little overrated during his MVP year but things have swung so far in the direction it's hilarious to watch people act like he's anything other than a friggin stud. Westbrook has never gotten to play distributor with a group of shooters like this before. This is such a huge upgrade for the Rockets. The West is so spicy.

    Would be interesting to see the Pacers get involved in the Russ sweepstakes. They probably need to choose between one of Turner and Sabonis long term and this would give them a chance to get a return on that - they probably prefer Turner between the two but his contract also gives you a chance to turn Turner + McDermott's expiring contract + picks into a deal if they get a 3rd team involved. Dipo and Sabonis are way better than when they were his running mates in OKC and overall a Russ/Brogdon/Dipo/Sabonis core would instantly become East contenders.

    That's such a great fit for Denver.

    That's gotta be emasculating for Pelinka

    At this point is there really even any pitch for Kawhi to the Clippers other than this sort of nebulous 'we've got smart guys in the front office'? It seemed like a big reason Kawhi to the Clippers felt inevitable for a year was that a.) the Lakers were a dumpster and b.) they were going to go into this summer with the ability to max 2 guys and give Kawhi a running mate - whether that was gonna be Butler, Durant, Harris or even Horford - but Kawhi sitting on his decision basically takes that away now unless the Clippers have a godfather offer for Beal or someone like that that they will pull the trigger for if Kawhi says yes. I know they're a hardworking fun spOoKy team with guys like Harrell, Shamet, and SGA but no one on that roster looks like the 2nd best player on a championship team in the way the Raptors or Lakers can offer. They can just run it back but given there are no good free agents for another 2 years I don't know how this can't be a massive failure on their part if they put all their eggs in the Kawhi basket and come away with nothing.

    Don't understand why the Knicks didn't try to get involved here and get the free 1st rounder that's going to the Clippers now instead.

    Lively first day at Wimbledon - Tsitsipas and Zverev both gone and Osaka out on the women's side. I have to keep reminding myself how young Zverev is in the grand scheme of things but with each passing Slam you do have to wonder how big this mental bloc is that he just can't get it together for these at all. I used to think it was inevitable he'd work it out but maybe we're all gonna blink and all of a sudden he's just another Dimitrov.

    Miami just got bailed out big time. Don't know what the hell Portland is thinking here unless the idea is to flip Whiteside as an expiring contract to Cleveland for Love.
