There's no way in hell you bring Green off the bench. He's arguable their second best player. He's been playing PF since Durant moved to SF and has excelled there.

Grizzlies are going to draft Rubio, and let Westbrook play the SG Position.

it's a win win for thunder either ways. if they get thabeet their interior defense increases. if they get rubio their offense get better.

Grizzlies have a great PG prospect in Conely Jr, why would they take Rubio?

Thabeet will be worse than Greg Oden.

Mark it.

Where does this leave the Thunder?

Westbrook and Rubio seems as redundant as Durant/Green do at the one and three respectively.

Swift, Saer Sene, and Petro all didn't pan out. Do they really risk Thabeet being any different?

I could see them moving Westbrook or Rubio, but putting them both in the backcourt is intriguing.

I dont know if you live under a tree but Russell Westbrook naturally fits better at SG because he isn't a PG and doesn't have good PG skills.

Westbrook would actually excel as a SG similar to how Randy Foye began to excel when he was finally moved from PG to SG.

Thunder trade up to #1 to draft Blake Griffin, their fans want it and they have the picks to do it.

What a f*cking idiot this guy is.

Just an amazingly consistent level of of idiotcy he displays on a daily basis. I mean, he does it so easily.

I'm astonished.
