    • @Davon Calloway harden didnt need the ball then and did not need it for years in Houston ... why dont yall watch ball. dantoni mad harden the super ball handler.

      Dea D. AssDea D. Ass5 ай мурун
    • They both need the ball in their hand though. At most it’d be a less watered down version of what harden and Westbrook do today.

  • Bradley beal wouldn't probably be who he is if he played behind KD and Russel Westbrook..let's take that into in another universe..Melo would've won two chips atleast..and he wouldve been forced to be a better defensive player to go with his scoring ability if he want to start over tayshaun Prince and play under Larry Brown.

    • @Kirbystare1992 they use the 2 as a defender or play-maker beal is neither lol hes a scorer , who has decent D and can shoot and make passes he was also super injury prone and struggled a bit til he got better.

      Dea D. AssDea D. Ass5 ай мурун
    • @Kirbystare1992 no, your focused only one scoring, the thunder defense would get bullied over and over

      Weneed himWeneed him5 ай мурун
    • Probably not but he’d be way better than Andre Roberson, Anthony morrow guys like that that they tried playing at the 2.

    • Yeah Wall and Beal complement each other well

    • @Live Love Life thunder defense would be much worse and they would get bullied in the paint

      Weneed himWeneed him5 ай мурун
    • Yea but he would have won a chip with okc he a better fit than James and how will that work with him and John wall 🤔

  • As a wizards fan I knew about this a long time ago. Okc would have definitely won a chip by now if that had happen

    Bryant CarsonBryant Carson5 ай мурун
    • If you guys can't figure out that OKC would have a dynasty with that deal, I don't know what to tell you. Harden was on his way out and Beal would have been the perfect fit. Not to mention his coach at Florida (Billy Donovan) would have most certainly still become coach. That would have given KD that much more faith in Billy Donovan and they would have had a ring by 2015 FOR SURE. KD in his 7th year, Russ in his 6th year and Beal in his 3rd year.... Steph/Klay/Dray vs. Russ/KD/Beal. Just think about it guys. Lol. Plus the fact his college coach would have been there coaching him and the boys

      The ChopboardThe Chopboard4 ай мурун
    • lmao no.. harden is better then beal.. and hes a rookie in 3 years cheap ass okc would have just got rid of him

      Dea D. AssDea D. Ass5 ай мурун
    • @Weneed him harden would have dominated the eastern conference. Ted Leonsis "owner " of the wizards vetoed that trade. If ernie grunfield could have surrounded them with talent they probably would have come out of the east

      Bryant CarsonBryant Carson5 ай мурун
    • a worser defender in beal over harden, they don't win one, 2013 was when talented teams started to show up, or was it 2014

      Weneed himWeneed him5 ай мурун
    • @F A R Harden wanted the ball in his hands way too much. Beal can play off the ball just like Durant. Those three together would still be winning rings. Absolutely crazy

      The ChopboardThe Chopboard5 ай мурун
  • Almost got Mike conley, Tyson Chandler, and Al horford all in their primes too. Presti is the best gm ever just that one dumb trade will haunt him forever

    Tom BystanderTom Bystander5 ай мурун
    • It wasn’t sam it was the owner

      Tyrone HarrisTyrone Harris5 ай мурун
    • Idk if he the best GM cause OKC could've won more if they drafted better imo (not always draft a bunch of raw athletes)

      Scarlet KurapikaScarlet Kurapika5 ай мурун
    • The Owner Wouldn't Let Sam Presti Re Sign Harden Because He Didnt Want To Pay Harden 5 Years 55 mil

  • The worst decision the wizards ever made. Should have definitely got Harden!

    • @JJ Edwards Beal is nice but dude Harden carried the rockets and dude an MVP.

      Ryan McCorveyRyan McCorvey5 ай мурун
    • East’s to say in retrospect... and I disagree. I’ve been knowing Beal is a top 3 SG and he does a lot of things harden refuses to do.

    • be happy, because guys like lebron playing with the cavs, never were able to draft good at all or making the correct trades to make his team get through the finals, the management didn't do well building the cavs with bron, so at least kd had a talented team

    • @Slime Bishop facts bro. I knew KD was leaving when they drafted Josh Huestis just to send him to the G League to save money. That ownership group had some real thieves and scoundrels in it

      Elbow GangElbow Gang5 ай мурун
    • As a day one okc fan sam presti has go to go. He makes good moves but the catch is he ALWAYS fucks it up. KD got tired of playing with these trash athletes we keep trying to draft. Then they did the same shit to Russell after KD left like all he had to do was put shooters around Russ. Chose Ibaka over Harden. Got Paul George to pair with Westbrook and did nothing whatsoever to build a team around them. Then let Kawhi persuade him to demand a trade. I'm telling u look at our history he's fucked up every good move he made sooner or later
