All in all, this is good for the Thunder. Westbrook-Roberson-George-???-Adams. See if they can either get a 3/D SF/PF for cheap on the market, or look to move Melo and Picks to get some guys... I mean, with Melo's huge contract, they might be able to absorb a few contracts for him (depends on how willing they are to send picks out)....

Or of course, look to draft someone who could is closest to NBA ready as they can.

Wtf are you even talking about, I always defended you and others. I thinks Bans are ridiculous but ok...


Thatís great and all but let me ask you a question take Paul George and put him on the either currently contructed team, which one is better? Theyíre both just playoff teams, not championship teams. PG re-signing outs OKC paying their roster over 220million..... THATíS HUGE for a small market team. If he signed in LA it would be a move with plenty of cap space Randle, Ingram, Kuz, Ball, Hart etc and flexibility to get better.


Honestly, I donít care either way tbh, he can re-sign in OKC but I think itís a mistake, sign in Philly before OKC.

pg13 just wants the max money... he would be stupid to stay over going to LA... LA gets you money and endorsements as well but yes has more tax and OKC will get further for now but are pretty capped potential wise. WHy not go and grow with a young team with more 2 way upside? Seems like he just wants to stick with the best player over the best team which is stupid to me. No the lakers arent better than OKC but neither team has a shot at winning a title over the next few years... Why not go to the bigger market with much more potential and an organization willing to do anything.

PG13 can make more with the lakers long term but its peanuts when you factor certain things in.. this is why big markets no longer have a profound advantage unless its just a players hometown and they want to go there... PG13 could make a ton from endorsements but he loses a ton in taxes and building with a new team over making it to the playoffs with a known star... The endorsements will come nomatter what so the extra year plus LA taxes makes the big time advantage no longer an advantage. I still think PG13 should go because he is a moron staying in a capped situation.

He's right. Think about out it it, dude. The Thunder with those three primary guys and Oladipo before he was any good were a playoff team and played a competitive series with Houston a year ago.

Meanwhile the Lakers won a whopping 35 games this season. Do they have some good young players? Sure. But they don't have anyone remotely on Westy's level, and Roberson and Adams bring more to the table as role players with their grit and defense than LA's role players do.

And for the record, I still think there's an excellent chance PG ends up in LA. But he can't be the only guy to sign there if they want to be a serious playoff squad in the West. They need to add another key piece, or one of their young guys needs to make a huge leap for them to crack the postseason.

I don't think this OKC team has much potential as constructed, but they're at least a perennial top 5 seed in the West. I don't think the Lakers with George alone would be...

And in OKC he doesn't have to "be the star". And I don't know much about his personality ; but some players just don't like being the face of a franchise. Sure, going home to LA would be nice as that's "home". PG has always been a "star" but he's never taken that next step into the 5-8/10 range which we've all been waiting for.

I feel like if he has an average season in LA, he'll get obliterated not just by LA media but nationally and probably be a lottery team.He has an average season in OKC and call it how it is, no one really cares and they probably drop a few seeds. Not all players can or want the pressure and microscope on them

Right. Because A.) I'm not allowed to talk about one team that could make a run at him and B.) We don;t know what moves other teams could make the better position themselves to make a run at him. So thus we are only talking about LAL vs. OKC as that is how the conversation has gone.

I am not gonna argue LA over OKC but you are completely ignoring OKC's cap situation... not just next year but moving forward... they are in cap hell and have no ability to improve the team... How will they improve next year? Roberson is gonna get healthy? How are they going to add anyone else without trading Roberson or Adams? Not that there is a market for either.

You do understand that if PG13 signs a max for next year that their cap number between just him and russ goes up almost $18 million when they are already paying tax.

Will PG13 sign in LA? I have no idea nor does the articles author.. what I do know is that if winning is his goal there is zero chance he re-signs in OKC

To be fair most guys donít care as much about the dollar amount that actually comes through on the check, itís more about the prestige of what their contract indicates. So I donít think most guys factor in the tax thing as much as we like to think. The contract is more about having the 9th biggest contract in the nba, and I donít think it matters to them as much if they actually have the 15th largest take home pay after taxes or cost of living adjustments.

As for the lakers vs okc, sure okc will likely be better short term. But I just donít see a championship out of that okc team unless things fall crazy into place perfectly. They would probably need some injury help in the West and/or a big time hit in the draft (like borderline star), which is difficult late in the draft. To me, I donít see a legitimate path forward for okc that involves them being a true contender.

LA on the other hand at least has a path forward. I have no idea if itíll work. They can create cap space to get additional free agents, and potentially another star. They have young, high potential players who could develop or be traded for immediate help. If youíre selling me on those two teams as a free agent, the LA situation sounds better in all honesty. Now for him in particular, LA is geographically more enticing but okc can offer more cash. So itís not a super easy call.

Okc canít give him the super max because George donít qualify for it. Getting hurt has given him multiple years of not making All Star games or any all NBA teams. He will only leave what Hayward left on the table. He wonít leave nothing close to what Durant left on the table when he left.

Flaw in this mindset is that players only play in the NBA to win championships.

Some guys just want a puncher's chance at a title and a big contact. PG gets both if OKC wants to open the wallet up.


The only way any debate comes in my mind is if the Thunder are offering any less than a full max. Neither OKC or LAL are looking like they have even a 1% chance of winning a title in the next 3 years (when he'll likely be able to opt out again). So the decision should be mostly driven by money. Can PG make up the huge losses in raises per year and/or a 5th yr? That's the question I would present as his agent.

For a guy with his injury history, and the fact he'll be 31 next chance he gets to opt out I'm signing the dotted line for the team that's offers the full fledged max deal.

Still seems like the Thunder will need to do something big to keep George, like buying out Anthony or figuring out a trade. Theoretically, George is a decent fit with Westbrook, Adams and Roberson. Get rid of Anthony and add a combo wing or stretch-four who can shoot and defend. Hopefully Grant keeps developing, and Patterson regains some of his old form.

The only way any debate comes in my mind is if the Thunder are offering any less than a full max. Neither OKC or LAL are looking like they have even a 1% chance of winning a title in the next 3 years (when he'll likely be able to opt out again). So the decision should be mostly driven by money. Can PG make up the huge losses in raises per year and/or a 5th yr? That's the question I would present as his agent.

For a guy with his injury history, and the fact he'll be 31 next chance he gets to opt out I'm signing the dotted line for the team that's offers the full fledged max deal.

But I sort of address that with the rest of the post. Okc can offer more money and maybe more immediate wins. LA can pitch roster flexibility to have a better chance at creating a true contender and a better location for George.

Depending what youíre looking for, itís not that easy. And Iím not sure heís giving up that much money either. I doubt the 5th year is that appealing, and as a lot of superstars have shown, it can actually be beneficial to opt out and resign frequently. So I wouldnít at all be shocked if he opts out after two years when heís 30 and eligible for a 5 year extension with his new or current team.

I don't even think Durant is that good. :shrug:

Never said it was unnerving. I said it doesn't really belong on PSD. This is primarily a sports forum. If people want to express their opinions on politics, there are a million places to do that. But I see people post moronic political posts all day on social media. I shouldn't have to see it on a sports forum.

so you are against the NFL players kneeling then

okc should try and retain as much assets as possible and worry about the tax later. just sweet talk george into re-signing, dump salary later.

No, actually. That's a totally different scenario. They're using their presence as a platform to provide an opinion on social and racial issues that are prevalent in our society. I have zero problem with that.

That's a little difference than someone creating an obviously argumentative signature in an internet sports forum to deliberately piss off everyone who disagrees with him. And if he wants to talk politics on PSD, there's literally a forum for that: http://forums.prosportsdaily.com/forumdisplay.php?366-Politics

Listen up my padowan,

I had a very similar signature before I got banned and the same avatar with a similar if not identical message in my sig. You are using your distaste of me and our great president to attempt to attempt to start a passing match.

KY sig before. I was banned wasn't an issue and it shouldn't be now. You have a problem with it now and not before is hypocritical yet unexpected given who is trying to bait me.

I think there is less pressure for Paul George in Oklahoma City. I think he's better served as a second banana. I think he should stay in Oklahoma City.

He will not be able to handle the pressure and scrutiny in Los Angeles.

Your signature makes me want to throw up in my mouth. Just a heads up, but there's a strong chance one of these days you're going to piss me off and I'm going to report your sig for being blatantly instigatory...

For someone who always says he's trying not to get banned, your actions speak otherwise...

California endorsement money is vastly overblown. Unless you're on the Warriors, every other player in the top 10 in endorsement money is outside of Cali. Lebron is #1, Harden, Westbrook, Irving, Giannis, Lillard, and Wade are all top 10 in endorsements.

Where did you that info? I'm not sure all the endorsement #s are public are they?

PG13 can make more with the lakers long term but its peanuts when you factor certain things in.. this is why big markets no longer have a profound advantage unless its just a players hometown and they want to go there... PG13 could make a ton from endorsements but he loses a ton in taxes and building with a new team over making it to the playoffs with a known star... The endorsements will come nomatter what so the extra year plus LA taxes makes the big time advantage no longer an advantage. I still think PG13 should go because he is a moron staying in a capped situation.

he already makes a ton from endorsements. you need a big market to gain exposure anymore. The Lakers dont have much, hes not putting that team in the playoffs as is.

Pretty much. The age of social media has really eliminated the small market issues in football and basketball. Baseball and Hockey still see it, but that's due to the more regional nature of those sports.

I think this is the relevant quote from the article.

For one, George and Randle share an agent (Aaron Mintz), and could have been at the workout supporting their fellow Mintz client, Dukeís Grayson Allen.

true but also Donovan Mitchell was there and his agent isn't Mintz. It's not like he went out of his way to hang with Randle and I'm sure a big part was for Grayson Allen but they are hanging out and that could be important. especially when Kuzma/ZO/George were all in Vegas at the same time, arriving at the same time...
