Just wish that David Stern didn't rob my team. Would be a lot cooler to cheer for them in Seattle... But i'm just happy that they are proving to be a great franchise.

Yeah, I like the upside of lamb, the main reason I say OKC won the trade was because Harden wasn't staying after this year. That was made pretty public. OKC lost a lot of leverage and STILL were able to get a very substantial amount. Thats the main reason I liked the trade.

They could've kept him this year, matched any offer in free agency, then trade him after next year if they didnt want to pay the luxury tax. It would have been a little harder to move him with a big contract, but worst case you could pay the tax for one year then deal him in the next offseason.

It was a cost cutting move either way, lets just say that if Mark Cuban owns this team that trade never happens
