I love hearing people thinking allowed after trades have been done and big boobs have been made most of the stuff they're saying makes more sense than the trade itself it's going to be interesting to see how Brooklyn is but it's very sad they dismantled that team there was some really great players all together in one place I think all they really needed was Kyrie and Durant all there and everybody healthy to see how they were going to be because that never

James Harden is spectacular during the regular season and then all of the expectation and pressure of the playoffs is too much for him. Kyrie Irving is inconsistent and just not a general good teammate and the guy has little Hissy Fits. The trade has been done we now have three superstars on one team and we will have to see who makes the sacrifice

Man look im a lifelong Rockets fan...i live in Htown.....the media can dream up a James Harden KD reunion all they want.....the fact of the matter is that the Rockets have NO INTEREST in what Brooklyn is offering them for Harden....period.....not even Kyrie because of his availability the point where they are not even answering the phone for the Nets at this if they want Harden...they gonna have to get a 3rd team involved to satisfy the Rockets demands......and at this point....Houston basically has stopped ALL Harden and Westbrook trade negotiations and is ready to run it back another year with those two.

It amazes me that the “former teammate” angle is being used once again with James Harden.. Russell Westbrook was a former teammate, and is currently a teammate.. yet they talk about the two of them like the relationship went bad. (Bad or not they likely looked at the league around them and figured, if this team is paying the two of us, and we aren’t enough, we aren’t going anywhere..) BUT this is the same group of clowns talking about KI🤣 and KD like they are best buddies. Laughable. Irving was nothing special before LBJ came back home.. leaving that team erased him from any relevance. Durant couldn’t get anything done before joining the enemy (GS), I expect less of him now. Goofy KD practically joined a championship team in the last two minutes of the game. Rings are real, but not much to speak on.. means less than his run in OKC.

I can see that three team trade Max talked about but instead of Ben, it’s Embiid. Russel n Ben makes no sense as teammates so Embiid would be a far better fit. Houston needs a big too. Philly can get LeVert, Dinwiddie n a pick from each organization.

This may be the most disliked/detested big three the league may ever have. Everyone except Nets fans will be rooting hard against this squad. Looking back at Miami's big three, people disliked them only for LeBron's stupid "Decision." But I think everyone still appreciated Wade and Bosh. Can't wait to hate this team!
