Also rballer insisting there was no “University Of The Streets” was an all-time Swamp moment.
And also hilarious that the guy who said university of the streets went to Harvard. He took pride in that irony.

Re: NBA Offseason

I had talked myself into the Wiggins acquisition last weekend when dealing Russ became inevitable because he fits the Thunder prototype of finding guys who can do a lot of things (but not shoot!)

Butler will be 31 in 2020-21 and Paul would be 35 assuming that OKC flips him over there. Paul won't make it the whole season and there's ...

Re: NBA Offseason

How valuable are the draft picks OKC collected? Unless there are major injuries, I don't expect much of them to be lottery picks, and most late 1st round picks are lucky to become quality starters it seems. Having one less year of a crappy contract is significant, and this was forced on Presti, but...
