So now the burning question is will Westbrook get traded. And to who. He must really be feeling upset after his running buddy pulled off that move to LA. Did what he could never do.

OKC will be Ok....they just need Westbrook to average 32--12 & 12. No problem. The guy no one wants to play with.--Yohe

Hopefully he'll be able to peacefully coexist with Jimmy Butler:

That would be a good 1-2 there. Too bad OKC will be a lottery team though.

Well Westbrook just got traded. However it's to a team that has an old friend of his:

Well Harden and Westbrook trying to coexist, should be fun. If they could coexist, they should be near the top of the West.

And OKC is officially a rebuilding franchise, for the next several years. except with CP3. I'm sure they'll trade Steven Adams too.

The Rockets will be crazy to watch. The whole West will be wild. :)

A favorite around here, Draymond Green, signs the max with the Warriors:

So looking at the NBA schedule, this appears to be the first time that the defending champs won't be on ABC. I know Kawhi is gone and that the Raptors will still be on the Canadian national TV outlets, but still that's very damming to the Raptor fans in America.

Good to see the Pelicans get some love. I guess they're counting on big ratings from Zion and the former Lakers. Hopefully Zion will be playing a lot.

And that leads me to think that I hope there's a bit of a backup plan if/when the star players sit out due to "load management". Since it worked well for the team that won the title last year, expect to see more of that this year, to the dismay of the TV partners.
