    I can't stand Chris Paul, but a very, very, very small part of me kind of feels bad for him. Then I realize he's about to make $124 million the next 3 years.

    Hopefully, OKC sends him to Miami with Miami's 2021 1st rounder and the dust will settle for a bit before the training camps.

    Mitchell is near the 80th percentile as a spot-up shooter. Last year, he was forced to create and take some low-efficiency shots like running floaters from 10 feet out.

    well, from january onwards (basically half a season) he finded something between health and fine tune adjustment, and then start flying. Before that, he were really struggling.

    Also, for the question before, Mitchell can creates his own shot, but he benefits from the creation of his pg (he may develop as pg, but right now he's an undersized sg with extensive lenght and some PG skills) and others teammates, so much that wasn't really uncommon games where his first fg attemp were low for the entire first half of the game, or even taking more than 4 minutes to take the first one. Even with he needing to get better at playing as pg (what he showed some improvement second half of last season), for that statement be true he'd need to be with the ball at his hand nearly all the time and whining about it when not, and also start to stat paddle his assists and boards, not only his scoring.

    I can’t believe Houston did this , they have been very close the past few years , now front office thinks Westbrook is the answer to get over the hump ???

    From the jazz point of view this is great .

    As much as we all don’t like Paul , dating back to the Deron battles , he is a pure pg , really picks his spots , runs the team.

    Now when the game is close , you just double harden and make Westbrook make a shot from the outside , or let him drive into Gobert , his shot and finishing has gone backwards in the past few years .

    With our added outside shooting , they will be expanding more energy on defence .

    Capela is great on the switch , now you add Bojan who can take him off the dribble and drive or hit the 3 , likewise Conley ...

    For my $$$ the "two MVP's" is the most overblown part of this.

    -Russ's MVP belonged to Harden IMO

    -tbh CP3 shoulda had a MVP, but they gave it to Kobe on a lifetime achievement basis...


    I think OKC won the trade easily.... What this trade gives Houston is some equity with HArden, he wanted to move on from CP3 and got his old pal.

    There was rumors Harden was unhappy with their style of play around the ASB....


    Harden is the type of player you appease, that i would.... Not, you know haywho

    Donovan Mitchell got a lot of criticism that he didn't deserve last year. He was only in his 2nd year and 22 years old having to hold a team up by his shoulders against an improved Houston Rockets team. And in the regular season, teams had reviewed film on Mitchell and defended him better than in his surprise rookie season. He will be an elite SG in the NBA and we need to give him our full support and be patient with him. He deserves a lot less criticism and more support. We bail on our young talent way too easy and forget about their lack of time in the league and that they need to make mistakes so that they can learn from them.

    More than anything Donovan had various injuries through the first half of the season but he wasn't revealing them. And he was coming off a serious injury which kept him from preparing properly over the summer. I never believed the reviewing film thing. He had four games before January where he had 7,4,6 and 3 pts. He just couldn't bring it those nights. Once his injuries healed he went on a tear ending up at 23.8 PPG for the season. This year he's going to be phenomenal.

    Donovan did all that with 1 reliable shooter in the starting lineup. The kid is amazing. What he has done the first two years of his career is legendary.

    Legendary is a bit much. Let’s see what he does this year with a legit surrounding cast.

    When he is putting up MJ like numbers in the playoffs as a rookie, leading his team to a playoff series win in a way that hasn't been done since Wilt, breaking a 3point record for rookies, averaging 49 wins, winning the dunk contest, and averaging 23.8 ppg in his second year - that type stuff is building a legendary resume.

    I just had a tiffany:

    There’s this saying that someone’s not dead until they’re warm and dead, meaning that you don’t cease resuscitation efforts of someone who was hypothermic until you’ve restored normal temperature, as they may still may be revived. I suppose the MO of the FO is to make sure he’s warm and ded.

    I don't get why they need to trade him. They already have all the picks they need, and more. No need to tank. Just play him and try to make the playoffs.
