If he doesn't, I'm sure Presti won't try to re-sign him and let him walk in the summer.

In all fairness, if he's not worth exactly $10-12 million, he's very close to it. The guy is averaging nearly 18 ppg in about 30 mpg and has a PER of like 25 right now. When you compare his numbers to the numbers of other guy's making $10-12 million at the 2/3 position, it's pretty obvious that he's worth at least $8-9 million a year.

Zach not being 100 percent back to form isn't the same as him being actively injured and the rest of their squad was pretty healthy.
Clippers would beat Grizzlies with their improved bench. OKC I am not so sure about.

They play the Clippers in 9 days, we will see how the new pieces fit. So far, WB anc CP3 cancel each other out, no one can guard Durant, and Ibaka is actually playing better than Griffin, Martin=Crawford, Bledsoe>Maynor, DJ>Perk. They are equal but OKC has a more unstoppable scorer.

Griffin definitely needs to return to form before the playoffs. If he's mentally broken and passive still and Ibaka keeps up this confidence then yea OKC likely wins unless CP3 has a GOAT level series. I wouldn't say CP3 and Westbrook cancel each other out though. CP3 burns Westbrook and the Thunder the last few years.

What happened to Griffin? Why is he mentally broken?

Depends on which Westbrook shows up. He can guard CP3 and abuse him on the other end, don't know why he struggles. Rose always outplays CP3, Westbrook should be able to do the same, he is a lot like Rose. He just needs to be a little patient.

Back to the topic at hand. I think Martin has done a great job and he's been the scorer that OKC was counting on.

I told y'all it was a fair trade. And you get lamb and a couple draft picks to go along. Maybe it's a step back but definitely a step back, 2 steps forward type of move.

He seems to like to try and point out all of the flaws of the other Western Conference contenders. In this case, he was making baseless uninformed claims about the Thunder and Kevin Martin this year.

Anyway, back on topic. Martin didn't have this best game last night, which is fine. Harden didn't come through and have a big night every time Durant and/or Westbrook were struggling. Despite that, though, he still finished with 13 points and was 8/8 from the line.
