this team was supposed to work
Deron's ankles were long gone. He was my favorite PG in the league while in Utah.

then they had to face this.

When it comes to basketball and the FA dealings, I get real confused. Can someone break this down to me? Was Kevin Durant traded from GSW to BK Nets for D-Lo and other players? I don't get it.

Smart move. He's one of the few players who understands that sign-and-trades cripple your team (see CP3 w/giving up Lou Will, Bev & Montrez; PG13 in a couple years, etc.).

He ensured he got an a*set out of that trade to aid his new team. More players need to be aware of how crippling S&T's are.

Good sh*t KD he know he getting up there in age. Russell is a young a*set you get something for him.




I donít even understand why they reporting it Russell straight up for KD is disrespectful anyway
If it wasn't the GSW he's going to then it would be but Russell will fit their style of play and he may continue to get better playing with them.

You should read the article and not just the headline before forming opinions. He wanted to ensure that his new team got a pick (its top 20 protected) instead of just handing the Warriors D'Lo who saved the Warriors from being in cap hell this season.

Had nothing to do with soothing his ego. That's how you handle business, unlike CP3 gutting the Rockets just so that he could get a supermax.

This right here is the perfect example of a post to create a false narrative:
OP conveniently left out the following:

According to Windhorst, Durant "initially balked at being traded for Russell straight up" and required Golden State to include a first-round pick in the deal, believing it to be an unfair trade for the Nets otherwise.If that pick falls within the top 20 next season, the Nets will instead receive a second-round pick in six years.

Durant's leverage also helped the Nets convince the Warriors to take Shabazz Napier's and Treveon Graham's contracts off their hands. Golden State then traded the duo to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with $3.6 million.




See, KD used his leverage to get a pick, AND cut bad salary from the books..

Thats SMART...

Way to go OP with the half message...

Technically yes, so Brooklyn could sign both Kyrie and Kd.

Kd signed there but to make it work/match, someone had to sign Dlo. Gsw wanted him so told the nets, we will take DLo on a Max for space for KD on your end.
