Dude, how old are u? If you think Hardens or Ibaka is going to walk you're an idiot. We have 8 months to resign both of them or trade them and if we trade them it will be for something better then Gortat and a player thats most likely not going to be on your team. Either way why does it matter to you?
Get em! =)
- Durant (35)
- Ibaka (9) Go Okc!!!
- Westbrook (0)
It would make the Thunder a lot bigger and stronger up front with Perkins, Ibaka, Jones III, and Bynum. Harden is good but let's face it, he'll need a huge contract and he was awful in the finals, even missing easy layups. Maybe he can be replaced by signing a Ramon Sessions or someone like that for the minimum.
Wow that is like the worst idea Ive heard yet.Are you a closet Laker fan ?Sessions really The only change I would make to this team would be bring Pleiss over and trade Perkins for a sniper 3point bomber.We got PJIII to back up at the 3/4 and he is a stud.Cant wait to see what kind of record they post next season.Could challenge 70 wins
James Harden and Perkins for Paul Pierce.
Think about it, you have a young talented team that could really use a proven veteran winner (sorry not Derek Fisher). Imagine Paul Pierce being a third option. He would almost never get doubled teamed, and he would take a HELLA OF LOT OF PRESSURE OF KD AND WESTBROOK. He is a perfect fit, he can create his own shot, can also be a playmaker and in crunch time he's..... well he's the truth. I know his high salary is part of the reason this will never happen, but it would be better to absorb his salary for two years than pay harden for 5. Because they are probably going to sign and trade Harden anyway. I KNOW THAT THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN BUT IT WOULD BE A GREAT SCENARIO, and by the time Pierce retires KD and Westbrook would already be at the point were they are veterans and can lead guys younger than themselves. I know Pierce would hate leaving Boston but I think he would absolutely relish the opportunity to mentor and help KD and Westbrook. Pierce would definitely not fold under playoff pressure and trust me unlike Westbrook, he would continue to make KD option number one and he would get his when it was neccessary. The only reason I write this is because more than likely Harden is gone after next year anyway. So instead of adding more youth, add a future HOF er finals MVP, multiple all star all NBA defensive player that still has a lot left in the tank.
