Great trade by Houston for Westbrook and getting rid of Chris Paul. Paul already had enough opportunities, and for late round 1st picks It's a steal for Houston.

A recipe for complete disaster....2 glory/hero ballers who can't give up the rock, not to mention their personalities.

Can't give up the rock? Russell led the entire league in assists the past 2 seasons and the year before that it was Harden.

Of course they lead in assists...if you don't get the ball from them you aren't gonna have the ball at all...ask Chris Paul about both of them...ballhogs...no movement

Russell is known for creating scoring opportunities for his teamates. That's why Paul George had the best season of his career this year by a mile.

He's known for wasting the majority of the shot clock and then passing when he gets into trouble.

Paul George just happened to be the recipient of a lot of those passes, and possesses the skill to get it in the basket a large percentage of the time.

It's the same game that Harden and Lebron play. They spend the whole shot clock trying to get the points for themselves. If they can't do it, they pass. It puts high amounts of pressure on their teammates, who get the fucking boot if they can't do something in under 2 seconds.

But it leads to lots of points and assists for the heros.

If that were true Paul George would have never decided to stay with the thunder way before free agency began last year.

I love how people are saying OKC is reinventing themselves...no, it's called they're screwed.
