They selected James Harden with the 3rd overall pick

and Tyreke Evans was picked with the 4th overall pick

Imagine if they selected Evans???? How good would they be now/future

Westbrook
Reke Evans
Durant
Jeff Green
Ibaka/Aldrich

They wouldn't be nearly as good considering Evans is so ball dominant and would take away touches from Durant and Westbrook.

not really the same, but still might have worked (somehow)

What if Portland picked Durant instead of Oden, then you're whole theory would be out the window cuz you'd have 2 pgs in Tryeke and Russ, and Green as the 3rd guy with an injured Oden on the bench. Not that great of a team.

Worse off. Tyreke is a ball-dominant player and quite frankly, overrated. Harden will be great for us, it's just a matter of being patient and waiting for his defense to be strong enough to overtake the starting spot. Green on the other hand...

Yeah, I think a team of Magic, MJ, Dr. J, Malone, and Shaq wouldn't be that good because they all need the ball in their hands to be effective :rolleyes:

at a certain point talent overtakes that problem, and a team of Durant, Westbrook, and Evans would be WAY too talented to dismiss them on the grounds they couldn't distribute touches...

Exactly. Harden would have had a chance to win ROY if he were drafted to the Kings. It's just an entirely different situation between the two teams.

Bruno
01-22-2011, 06:49 PM
I think the impact would be minimal. The likelihood of Evans developing into the scorer he is alongside Durant and Westbrook seems pretty low. They need to focus on landing a big.

Evans is good, but when the Thunder match-up against a Lakers in the playoffs, I still see Thabo getting minutes because of his defense on Bryant, ect. I don't think Evans would have done what he did last year if with The Thunder.

How can you say that though? Harden hasn't had the chance to consistently play big minutes. The guy can play, just because he doesn't get to shine in the spotlight of the franchise like say Tyreke, Curry, or Jennings, doesn't mean he can't perform.

Do I necessarily think he would have averaged 20-5-5? Maybe not, but I do think he could have had a shot at ROY.

I see Harden as a solid player.. a guy who can play good D along with a great jump shot.. but Curry would have won Roy if Tyreke magically didn't get minutes and wasn't playing and if Harden had played on Sac..

Why don't they let Harden play more? He would be fantastic if he got PT/started. OKC is wasting talent on him IMO. You don't put your 3rd overall pick on the bench in his 2nd year when you are trying to become a contender with a young force. They are not in win now mode. Let the kid play, make mistakes, and learn through that; sort of how they developed Durant.

Hindsight being 20/20, they should've traded that pick for a big man. Harden doesn't really have a purpose at this point and they could've got a SG this year. What big man, I don't know, I haven't thought about it. But they clearly need a post presence.

They're waiting for his defense to be strong enough to avoid the huge defensive downfall of moving Sefalosha to the bench. Once Harden becomes a very strong defender (he's getting there, I promise), you'll see him in the starting lineup.

Also, you have to understand that if Harden starts over Sefalosha, we have absolutely no threat offensively on the second unit. Harden is our offensive threat when the starters are out, the second unit would be TERRIBLE offensively without him in it. Now if Ibaka started over Green, then I'd have no problem starting Harden because Green would be that second string scorer. But until then, Harden is going to have to play his role.

I understand what you're saying, but I just disagree. The best fit for the Thunder was a guard who could be effective without the ball (shoot 3's), handle the ball if needed, and defend.

Boom. Harden.

I would love to be a fan of a team who's biggest slip up was not trading down a few spots to get a guy they wanted and fit with their team. If the guy you want is there you take him. You don't roll the dice, trade down, and hope the guy is still there. And sure, Tyreke is better than Harden. So what? He doesn't fit the Thunder. They already have two stars on their team.

Durants rookie year he shot a terrible percentage and the team didn't go off and win 50 games..

One year with the Lakers Kobe had a terrible supporting cast and didn't make the playoffs

KG did alot with the Timberwolves yet they still had some bad seasons

I wouldn't say he's regressed. He just hasn't gotten better. He needed to improve his jumper, and it hasn't happened yet. His foot problems have been really hurting him as well. It also doesn't help that the Kings can't shoot, so teams just load up the lane on him. Once he gets healthy and gets a jumper, the sky is the limit. He's 21, he has plenty of time to improve one thing.

I agree because Curry can shoot the lights out and does not need the ball in his hands to dominate. Durant and Westbrook break the defence down and kick to curry will be sick. IMO Tyreke would not have been a good fit with OKC because tyreke needs the ball to be dominant and same with Westbrook and Durant. Tyreke is not a great catch and shoot shooter.

They should have drafted Stephen Curry.

A back court of Westbrook and Curry is too small; think of Golden State. Besides, Westbrook is better than curry, both in scoring, distribution and defense. Evans would be a better choice; their is no reason he couldn't accept playing second fiddle to Durant. How about Taj Gibson or DeJuan Blair? Oklahoma needed some more front court power back then, just as they do now. DeMar DeRozan would be great too; have him slash and Durant shoot.

Wouldn't fit too well. Steph Curry would fit like a glove though. Have WB playmake and Curry become the spot up shooter on offense. On D, they switch up, Curry mans the PG and WB the SG. The more I think about this made up lineup, the better it gets. The only thing better is if they got the #1 and drafted Griffin.... ****, they'd be settled for years to come.

01-23-2011, 05:48 PM

01-23-2011, 08:41 PM
I can see why people would say that Curry might be better bc of his outside game but im sure if the Thunder had to draft again between Harden and Evans they would have absolutely gone with Evans. Evans FG % has certainly taken a hit but he hasnt been healthy dealing with plantar fasciitis... still even with this he can still break down the defense and get into the lane. However, with out a healthy foot we havent seen those long strides to use his huge wingspan at the basket.

Evans all around game hasnt taken hit...his dribble drive gets him a solid 5.5 AST/G and he rebounds very nicely for a guard at 4.7 RBD/G. Evans is also quick enough to guard 3 positions most nights.

Any one that follows the Kings could tell you that Evans is one of those players that lets his game do the talking. Rarely does he argue with the refs, opposing players and certainly never with his coaches. He seems to just care about winning. I doubt he would have much trouble co-existing with Westbrook.

Evans certainly has work do on his shot but once he gets that down consistently he will be a star in this league... at 21 i see very little reason to think otherwise.

Tyreke is too ball dominant to fit in well with the Thunder who already have Durant and Westbrook. They would have been better off drafting Stephen Curry. People credit Stephs outside shooting but underestimate his court vision and passing...he has amazing court vision and has the highest basketball IQ out of all the 09-10 draftees. His turnovers need work, but he definetly has a little Steve Nash in him...

...it just sucks that he has to share the ball with Monta Ellis.

MUCH better because he would have a lot more trade value. trade him for really good players

Thats correct,

it will be a good trade if they have so many great players.
If these 3 guys are playing together isnt a good idea.

Should've drafted Curry? :laugh:

They would not have been better off with Evans because he would not have given them what he gave Sacramento. Dude sucked playing the 2 in college and only became effective when Coach Cal put the rock in his hands and let him do a Derrick Rose impression.

Yall act like Harden wasn't an All-American and a true SG which filled their needs exactly.

I'll tell you one thing: the Thunder are lucky that the Grizzles took Thabeet instead of Evans or Curry because they would have probably drafted him.

Durant is a beast and has been doing a great job with the workload in OKC.
