Russ and PG both had surgeries after the season. With a loaded Western Conference and with PG not coming back for a while, I think this was a pragmatic move on all sides. Also, Stephen A makes it sound like all those players were on the same team and didn’t win. Context clearly doesn’t matter to opinionators.

OKC was the formula GSW followed..build thru the draft then grow your drafted players.Unfortunately, they blinked.After that 2012 Finals, they should have kept Harden and just improved the roster behind those 3 pillars they already had.

James harden didn't make the Allstar team while he was in OKC. He has made the Allstar game every year since being graded, but since he didn't make it while he was there, he doesn't count.

Best Duo in the NBA (besides Steph & Klay) is C.J. & Dame Dollar
Michael Martinez

LBJ - 17th year - he's done. AD - never even been deep in the playoffs - he a joke ! Irving and Durant don't exist till 2021 - so who cares - RUss and Harden already sound like an incompatible couple - two drama queens - NO WAY !!!! Dame and CJ is like number 2 probably gonna be number 1 this season - - if you don't know, now you know . . . !!!!

C.J & Dame are not even a Top 5 Duo in the League when everyone is 100% Healthy. In no particular Order there are: LBJ and AD, Kawhi and PG13, Steph and Klay (which you already mentioned), Irving and Durant, Russ and Harden. The Portland backcourt could be 6th or 7th, depending on who you ask, because some analysts even said that Giannis and Middleton are better than them, which I don't believe, but still. I have yet to see someone claim that C.J & Dame are top 5.

Presti’s biggest mistakes are trading Harden and never finding a good coach for all that talent.

I would be quite concerned about their ball-hogging, rebound stealing, locker room toxicity, flopping and zero defense.
