I guess OKC didn't think they'd resign him this offseason. I thought he'd take less to stay in OKC. I guess it's better to get something for him than nothing.

I figured Martin would get traded but never knew it would go down like this.

OKC got the better of the deal. Got 2 first round picks next year.

Houston could use some proven talent though.

Harden will be terrible as the go to scorer....OKC just committed highway robbery, though I'm glad he wont be on the court for a potential WCF matchup between the Thunder and Lakers....

Lakers aren't going to the WCF. Kobe aint no MJ at 35.

Wow...

Anyone wish we would've made the deal at the draft?

OKC is balling man... Good get. They knew they couldn't re-sign him and they got tons of value for him - Lamb is going to be a good one, possibly better than Harden. I think Houston is gonna be disappointed long-term.

Still can't believe they actually did it, and did it now.

Who is MJ at 35?

You do realize they acquired Nash and Howard. He doesn't have to be MJ.

Seriously, some people just can't accept the Lakers built a superteam for the next two years. Even their bench got a whole hell of a lot better with Jamison, Meeks, retaining Hill, and Ebanks should improve significantly as well....

He could be better but I don't personally feel he will. Different players. Harden does better with the ball in his hands and Lamb is better playing off ball.

But I agree, long term, they will regret this. All their eggs are in the Harden-basket.
