give credit to miami. they were definitely the better team. but you cant help but to think of where okc would be had they gone with the tyson chandler for wilcox and joe smith trade. of course you still have to trade jeff green so ibaka and harden can have bigger roles.

So all this money to pay these guys is just going to come out of thin air.

OKC is a very, very good team, but these boys are not going to be together long.

NOW He's a Knick. SEEMS to me like you guys got your come-up-its. You guys troll Tyson and the Knicks and know you talk about how you could have got him. But in all seriousniss, You got Ibaka. So just be happy.

Someone still would have given Chandler a max deal last summer, and OKC wouldn't have him this year with all the money they shelled out to Westbrook.

OKC can get Gortat....

Should the Thunder go after free agent Steve Nash?
Now this would be special, wouldn't it? Can you imagine the league-wide terror of trying to stop the pairing of Nash and the league's top scorer in the halfcourt? Or how about Nash, Durant and Westbrook in the open court? Since the Thunder are capped out, that's just a pipedream, right?

It isn't and here's why: the Thunder could flip Harden (an Arizona State product, remember) to Phoenix in a sign-and-trade deal for Nash and Marcin Gortat. The Thunder have the contracts to make the money work (Kendrick Perkins and Daequan could be thrown in) and the Suns could get their young stud of the future without letting Nash go for nothing.

If the Thunder traded for Howard
If the Lakers got Rondo
If Boozer wasn't such a fail for Chicago

Can't go by ifs...

What ifs are meaningless at this point. I could say what if CP3 was traded to the Lakers before that prick Stern rescinded the deal.

I could be totally wrong, but wasnt the deal pretty much said (at least according to rumors) for Dwight howard for Ibaka and Harden? OKC ended up declining that trade

Serge Ibaka is the real DPOY. He blocks shots.

Gortat is officially underrated if anyone thinks that's a good trade.

That trade is AWFUL. I love Steve Nash and respect his game so much, but he's aging and definitely in a slow decline. Harden is an explosive player off the bench who could start.

BAD trade.

Honestly, without Perkins, The Thunder probably would not get pass the Lakers or the Spurs. His post defense on Bynum and Duncan was huge for the Thunder. He wasn't needed in the Heat series. That's why I thought Ibaka should have started at center and Harden started. Harden guarding Lebron freaking James was a very bad coaching decision.

Complete speculation, he was suggesting that they could do it.

While Harden is a much better player than Gortat, Gortat is on an incredibly reasonable contract for a starting center. With no pieces left besides Jared Dudley, Phoenix would have to give Harden a near max contract to get him to stay. So they'd have to shell out a ton of money and still be in the lottery. No thank you.

Chandler failed his physical so he wasn't able to be traded

Drafted super teams aren't really super teams at all. they are well developed teams.

Trading and signing for 2 number one options is a super team.

Trying to trade half your roster for one guy to pair him with another top option is a super team.

the spurs aren't a super team, neither are OKC they drafted well.

It's not against the rules, and took almost as good of a setup to firm then drafting players
