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.

Love Jordan Hill. Much better than McBob who is now in Orlando. Such a hard nosed player that will show up way more than the box score.

I loved McBob because he was an effort guy. Always was working trying to secure the rebound, or make the scrappy put backs. He's the one guy I wish they wouldn't have parted with in the trade. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around cutting Goudelock and CDR, and keeping Darius Morris and Duhon....

smh...

Like the "superteam" the Dodgers built? Nash & Kobe are done. Howard is overrated. LA will regret giving away Bynum for Dwight.

i must be in the minority but i like the deal. the rockets basically only game up one first rounder. the second one they recieved from toronto when they traded lowery. they had every intention of using that pick since they recieved it to trade for a player. i like a back court of lin and harden.

Lol get out of here with that trash. Nash is done? Kobe is done? Howard is overrated? Ok, guy. To call Nash done is one thing, but to call Kobe done is a whole other thing... if Kobe is done after a 28-5-5 season then I guess pretty much every player in the NBA is done.
