But make no mistake their title chances are officially CLOSED.
Harden was a huge piece to getting to the finals and alot of the wins they got, and Martin especially is not even close to being able to fill those shoes.
But OKC did get a decent haul for Harden....two future 1sts and Lamb is solid and an expirer in Martin.
And a second rounder too.
I dont think their title hopes are completely over. I think Kevin Martin is one of the most underrated players in this league. My pops thinks hes THE most underrated player in the NBA. He can really put the ball in the hole. And as a UCONN fan, I saw Lambs potential first hand.
