Parker f*cking sucks dude. And that was before the injury too. His career is completely done now.

OKC gets George and Melo

Lakers could have landed George or Melo but weren't willing to part with 2nd pick or Ingram or Randle. Those are 3 valuable trade pieces, but why give them up for Melo or PG? Melo past his prime and PG already said he wants to play for Lakers. Pointless giving up Ball or Ingram, which is what Indy wanted.

Agreed fully 100% except the part about Randle. He's not that valuable, way too many weaknesses.

Randle and Ingram suck. And now LA gets to watch OKC compete for a title with a guy they could've easily had. Now you're just expecting George to go to LA after experiencing success with Russ - stupid as hell

Enjoy the lottery, again

shit, I didn't realize Butler was worth 20 wins. Was hard to tell w/ Chicago always around .500.

Anyway, to answer OP, as of now I still give the "2nd best team in the West" title to the Spurs. But if OKC winning 60 or even 65 games won't surprise me.

I don't think this trade puts them ahead of the Spurs or Rockets honestly. Look at their bench. And asking two high usage players is a lot to change, but in this case it's three players. It will be interesting to say the least.

He's not good, but he was legit the second best player in the PS for the Spurs last year. He tuned it up somehow once the PS hit.

Crazy how some of you spend 24/7 on an NBA site yet have such awful, far off opinions. God damn losers

OKC will win around 65 games and battle the Warriors in the WCFS..... AND WIN

You are the most awful poster on this forum. Your brain must be a size of a peanut

Ingram just turned 20 years old. Let that sink into your shit brain for a moment.
If he "sucked" then Indy wouldn't have requested him in the trade for PG. Lakers brass aren't stupid enough to gut the entire team for PG.


And if they do indeed land PG in the offseason you'll be spinning it somehow as a negative when that time comes. Your trolling is predictable and a total bore.
