Default What if Perk and Nate stay injured?

Supposedly Perk is coming back, but I'm not gonna believe it until I see him finish out the season without going down again. Nate is having problems now, too.

Does that change the idea that the trade was bad?

Nate seemed fine in the pacers game two days ago. I can't imagine he's in that bad of shape after seeing him play. If Perkins doesn't come back I think we can manage with Mohammed until next year.

Yes, if they never play another game the trade was shit for the Thunder.

He's out at least four-to-six weeks they say...

lol And yea obviously it's a bad trade if they don't come back ever, but I'm just saying it's interesting that both of these guys are hurt now. It's almost like...they knew. But there's really no way they could have slipped that through.

I mean, Perk was injured, sure, but Nate? And having that problem w/ his knee had to be going on for some time, IMO.

Well dang, just caught up on that. Though honestly I don't know why OKC grabbed Robinson. He's good but with Westbrook, Maynor, and Harden being the first guard off the bench I'm not sure there are a lot of minutes for him.

I don't remember Perk having knee problems before being dealt? So he is hurt right now?

OKC voided the Chandler deal because they had questions about his foot, I am sure they would have been just as dilligent with Perk since they inked him to a fat deal already. And he hadn't even played a minute with the team.

If Perk doesn't play this year, the deal is still pretty. But if he has continual knee issues, that will mark the first bad decision the Thunder has made ever.

They needed the numbers to match up as Boston wouldn't be able to get both Green and Kristic since they are over the cap. They probably wanted Green for certain, but with all their bigs being hurt, they needed Kristic badly. So they got a center back after moving a center.

Nate wasn't going to play much of a role if any. I think the Thunder had to take him in order to get Perkins. Too many people look at the here and the now. The Thunder have been known to look at the bigger picture and that's why they grabbed Perkins. Sam Presti said they are going to bring Perkins back slowly.

Krstic has actually been a pleasant surprise while Green is still trying to adjust to a new role.

Nate isn't hurt like that. He just doesn't want to play for OKC. I don't blame him.
