Man, you've got to be impressed with Presti.



Well, maybe not... we don't know how it was. Maybe it was Miami who called offering their pick to free up some more cap room for free agency. In that case, you only have to be impressed with Presti for not being a moron... :wink:

If, instead, he called Miami... well, it's one more smart move to his resumé.

well because other GM's can smell desperation a mile away and want to crucify the warriors in any trade.

Thats a terrific pick miami gave up to clear out a small amount of space. they are really desperate to keep wade and bring in another big name free agent. OKl is really taking advantage fo teams that want to clear money. Okl seems to have a great future ahead of them

Honestly if I was new to basketball, OKC would be the team I run with. They're doing EVERYTHING the right way.

They are my 2nd favorite team right now.

2nd greatest in game dunk of all time ... of course next to Baron over Kirilenko.

When I lived in Seattle I lived on the same street, one block away, from Shawn Kemp. He had a big ass house and a ton of cars out front. His yard always looked like **** though.

I only saw Kemp a few times, but I saw Detlef Shrempf many times at the nearby REI and super market.

Don't hit me Rob :mrgreen:

If their front office keeps making moves like this, they'll be there in no time. I'm definitely liking that franchise.



Agreed and the Thunder deserve success now, what great moves.

Miami also got better with this move and I do think they'll get Amare and maybe even Boozer. All they'll need is a pretty good distributing PG and they're a championship caliber team, even without one they'd be with that team

Boozer and Amare will give them a better version of what we have. TOO MANY PF's. unless Amare plays center. Until then, they need to get a center.
