After we got screwed by the evil commissioner in the trade that shall never be named, we were hopeless. The only star that we could get is still in LA. The Pau Gasol and Nene combo would have been the best frontcourt in the nba. Only teams with a comparison to that are grizzlies (randolph and marc) and Knicks ( Amare and Tyson). After obtaining Pau and Nene in a possible sign and trade for Jordan Hill, and amnestying Thabeet, we would have had over 7 million dollars in cap space to fill out any roster holes( backup point maybe, Backup wing, etc). We would be the only other team in the west that could possibly win a championship (OKC being the other). But as reality strikes, we are still a team with a bunch of power forwards, cheap assets, a one dimensional scorer and a PG who is a total stud. Oh at least we finally got a Center.
That being said, Russell Westbrook must be Morey's next target. We need a leader and he can be a leader. I do not see any reason OKC should not trade him. Westbrook wants to be the batman, but Kevin Durant is in the way. Westbrook was arguing with Kevin Durant and wants to show he can be the leader. Skip Bayless said that " the difference between Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook is Kevin Durant." A trade package of Lowry, Patterson, and a 1st rounder should do the trick. I know Lowry is a complete and total stud, but Westbrook has way more potential and more athleticism. What do you guys think?
