I know it's crazy FA circus day on ESPN, but I seriously haven't heard them mention this once.

Grea move by Durant and OKC.

I hope NBA GM's share the love for Harden I see here. Maybe the Thunder will be able to sell high at some point before the rest of the league figures out he's a journeyman.

The oldest person on the team is Kevin Ollie....and he is far from 26 ;)

But, yes, the main core of the team is 26 or younger and probably the most talented 1-6 or 7 in the league. Not the best, but the most talented (I will give Kobe and crew their props as the best 1-7).

Easily one of the three best teams in the West and would probably be a top two team in the East.

This was easily the smartest move of the off season.

Holy hell. And their bench is young too, barring Kevin Ollie, Etan Thomas, and Kristic. Could a small market team possibly get their own dynasty?

Harden All Star? He has to show us he is even a productive starter first. He belongs in the "could be AS worthy" at best for now.

You cant compare OKC to Minny. Different circumstances hindered Minny. One was KG contract, another was loss of first rd picks. We dont know if FA would be attracted to go to OKC. But a young, rising team is attractice to FAs. See Elton Brand and Sixers.

Is 5yrs $85mil the most OKC could offer him in an extension? I know there are rules of how much you can make given the years in the NBA. I wonder what the yearly breakdown looks like. Trying to figure out what player in the NBA signed a similar deal to get a sense of how the year to year salaries look.

with less than 7 years of experience, the max for a player is 25% of the cap. rudy gay just finished his 4th season and got 5 years $80 million, slightly less than his max of $85 million. durant's max was $85 million as well, and he got the max.

7-9 years experience max contracts are 30% of the cap. so bosh, wade, james are eligible for more money.
