In Response to Another OKC-Celtic trade idea
[QUOTE]Well it seems like they are the Celtics version of Al Davis in the sense that we have made two possibly three beneficial trades with the Supersonics/Thunder in the last 6 years. First the Ray Allen trade, then the Perkins trade, and now rumors of them not want Westbrook. My proposal: OKC gets: Rajon Rondo and Glen Davis Boston gets: Russell Westbrook and James Harden, plus a contract filler Why the Thunder do it is because they want a more pass first PG and get a solid bench player in Davis. Why the Celtics do it is because they need more scoring from the point and add a trade asset in Harden.

There are zero credible sources that think that OKC is disappointed with Westbrook, it is all in the media.
There is also zero percent chance that OKC would trade two players that are better than both of the players they would be getting back. OKC will be playing for the WCF and Rondo will be recovering from a severe injury while Davis will be smoking lots of fatties and eating tons of twinkies. Harden is leaps and bounds better than Davis, ditto for Westbrook and Rondo.
OKC wants a pass first point guard? Not at all, they like Chicago, Washington, Orlando, Dallas, SA, Pho, and a whole bunch of others like that their point guards can shoot as well as pass. Pass first point guard is a code word for the worst shooter in the league.
You are smoking crack if you think OKC wants a point guard that cannot finish, cannot make freebies, cannot make 3s, and cannot make basic jump shots and is 3 years older than the point guard they have.... especially since Coach K dismissed Rondo but kept Westbrook.......
How can you completely misinterpret the speculation in the media and infer that there is some sort of ridiculous need in OKC for a point guard that is the worst shooter in the league and has not shown a 1% improvement in doing so for an all-star point guard that led the USA team to a gold medal?
The degree to which Cs fans overvalue the skills and then extrapolate nonsense that is pure speculation in the media is simply beyond me.
There will be a lock out, there will be a hard cap, the Cs will find that Rondo's supposed team friendly contract will be an albatross and that the Cs are stuck with the same team until the BIG 3 are dissolved.......
