Well, if it's ok with you guys, I'm going to keep on enjoying the ride for at least the next 3-4 years.

HAHA very ironic post coming from you. OKC signed Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka to longer term deals. I believe all 3 signed a 5 year deal. On the other hand, people are saying the Heat will have to dismantle after next season due to the luxury tax.

The Suns had a similar situation with Nash, and seriously your team was even more talented than the 01-04 Nets. The owner kept making the team worse, despite the fact that Nash and Stoudemaire were both getting better to keep the team a contender until 08. It sucks whenever your owner makes a move, your team gets worse. Too bad Steve Kerr had to be the scapegoat back then, there wasnt really much he could do.

So If I were a Thunder fan I'd be really scared, with an owner who refuses to improve the team you have no realistic hope at titles. Just look at Hornets ex-owner and Bobcats' owner Michael Jordan, you know the impact of an owner. No matter what a GM you have, he cant do anything if the owner cant be bothered to spend one more dollar than he already does.

your nets team during jkidd era has never been a contender in my eyes. Its just a product of weak eastern conference. Whereas what the thunder was doing was what shouldve been the suns doing. They shouldve traded marion for a true center and made johnson their 2nd option. Thats what the thunder are doing which is to take risks. the core of harden/durant/westbrook isnt winning anything. Bigs wins in this league and they have a weak frontcourt. Their only chance of getting a big is through the draft coz they arent the lakers or knicks who can attract free agents. Harden was drafted as a BPA and not of need so once he pans out, he should then be sold.

Yeah the Knicks right now is and never will be a contender in my eyes.

Thunder fans are so optimistic about their team, but even if Durant is the best player in the world, he cant stop the Thunder owner from making stupid moves that dispatches the team step by step. Once they realize the nature of Bennett it will be already too late, well, its not like there's anything they can do anyway. The nets got a much better owner, its like once in a blue moon chance. So perhaps its a good idea to enjoy this while they can? The honeymoon wont be lasting too long.

Actually I think the nets have the worse owner. They are willing to spend without thinking like dolan

Still can't believe they got rid of Harden though. That team seemed like inevitable champions. They're still great obviously, but when they did that it almost felt like anyone who isn't Durant is a potential trade piece.
