Andre Iguodala just became extremely important. He may tip the balance for a few teams. He can guard Lebron, Leonard, and George. He will be a huge pickup for any contender that signs him.

Really glad that Leonard did not sign with the Lakers. That would have put the league in the same place was when the Warriors were stacked.

He can't guard any of those guys in anything more than spurts. Kawhi was operating at about 80% and still put up 29 and 10 while chasing around Klay Thompson.

LAkers signing Cousins guarantees they ain't winning the championship next year. Just kidding. Lakers look strong on paper if they stay healthy. With the Warriors, Nets injuries situations, Clippers look as favorites. We'll see how the chemistry works out PG hasn't been great winner anywhere. Lakers vs Clippers rivalry will be sweet here in LA.

They signed Cousins for not much at all. He is not going to add anything and might be a subtraction. Good chance he won/t make it though the season.

I don't think we should look at Cousins as the same guy we saw in the Playoffs. I think he will be closer to the Pelicans Cousins. An off-season working with LeBron and AD will ha e him in shape.

To be fair, spurts are good on the right team. There more effective adjustments you set yourself up to make in the playoffs, the better. PG and KL are gonna give teams so many tough looks. Add one more piece off the bench to keep up that defensive intensity and discipline, and you can break some really good teams.

We will see.

He should join the Clippers.

Cousins to the Lakers and Westbrook just got traded to the Rockets for Chris Paul, two first round picks and two first round pick swaps. I think OKC got the better of that trade by far.

There is no was Russ a d Harden can coexist. They are both too ball dominant and don't do much when the ball is out of their hands.

Hardon will be too busy trying to throw his body into defenders on low percentage, step back threes and Westbrick will be too busy trying to manufacture triple doubles. The rockets are fucked.

Yeah. I can't possibly see any scenario where this will work.

NBA GMs really don't watch basketball, it feels like. OR they do these trades because they know that young casual fans will want to buy tickets to watch these duos that can't possibly work out.

Well, this is disappointing.

Westbrook and Butler at The Heat would've been fuckin' magnificent. I've no interest in Chris Paul so hopefully that comes to nothing.

I hate this trade for my Rockets. The only good thing about it is that Westbrook and Harden will put alot of pressure on defenses and draw a ton of fouls getting the other team in foul trouble.
