Which trio would you pick and why?
Curry/Klay/Green obviously. They actually have chemistry and are proven winners.
I'll take the team that went 73-9 and win a title...
Bottom 3 in their prime right now and a good coach
No one did that.
People acting like OKC kept those 3 together long enough to compare their accomplishments. OKC gave up Hardcan when Hardcan was 22, Westbrick was 23 and Durant was 23. But I'm sure we had seen everything they were capable of. It's not like they won the West at that age or any of them improved into MVPs.
Given Durcan left to get a title with the first three....
This really a goddamn question?
Hardcan was long gone by the time the Butler left. That OKC organization is a piece of joke.
Given I am from Seattle fuck the Thunder.
It's pretty pathetic. They have the best draft run in history with those 3, go to the Finals (out of the West, beating defending champs Dallas and next years Finals team Spurs on the way) when they're all 23 or younger and then just give away Hardcan because Perk and Ibaka were just too important. LMAO. I don't blame KD for leaving, though going to GSW was a bitch move.
I don't blame him for leaving but guys leaving their long time teams to hook up with a super team..... yeah, fuck that bull shit
OKC is excellent at acquiring talent but terrible at managing it. They've had Westbrook, Durant, Harden, Ibaka, Oladipo, Paul George, and Carmelo all within a 7yr span yet have nothing to show for it. How....
They have no idea how to actually build a team. They focused on aging role players over 22 year old Hardcan. Then when Durant left they just slapped together a has been Melo and a disgruntled PG13 who was clear this was a one year stop and acted like they had done something.
That 2012 run was the worst thing that ever happened to the Franchise. They got into a 'must win now' mentality instead of recognizing they had a core of 3 superstars years before they hit their prime (aged 22, 23 and 23 at the time). Imagine if they had accepted a slight step back by losing their interior defenders but had kept those 3 together. How hard would it be to fill Ibaka and Perkins' roles on that team with those 3 in their mid-20's? Fucking ridiculous franchise.
You're talking to a can that doesn't know anything about the basketball.
I'm sure you liked 5 other teams that weren't from seattle anyways.
It had to do more with the team to cheap to enter the luxury tax threshold. I think even Harden was willing to take less but they decided to trade him regardless. Their GM always gets praised for finding talent he should be destroyed for not being able to keep them together. Kind of glad that OKC never won anything since they probably have the ugliest fan base in the entire nba.
But they were being cheap with Hardcan because they had overpaid Perk and Ibaka. They could have moved them, even getting almost nothing back would have been preferable to what they did in the long run. But they had convinced themselves they were on the cusp of a title, instead of realizing they had just massively overachieved in 2012 off raw talent, which became obvious when they couldn't beat the Grizzlies the next year.
Choosing Perkins over Harden lmfaoooooo
This is a no contest, would have been a fun ride to see OKC's trio evolve together though
You're reading it wrong. They went 73-9 one year and won a title another year.
