we hit our "durant" last year. we need to find a westbrook & harden in the next 2 drafts
I still think that EG can be our Harden. Never as good as this year's Harden, but I think that he can flirt with last year's Harden. I think the guy really doesn't give a frick right now, even when he's playing poorly, but when he airballed that shot against the Nets, I think someone said something to him that pissed him off. After that, he had that absurd dunk and played extremely well the rest of the game. Let him get back into game shape and put some more talent around him, I think he'll play a lot better than he has this season.
Gonna be a LONGSHOT to find that third great player, and while AD will most likely become an elite player, we'll be lucky if he's ever the 2nd best in the NBA. That's why I think we either have to take a HUGE risk on the 3rd of our big 3 (4 year max deal to Bynum, which I'm not sure anyone else will offer) or live with one elite player, 2 fringe All Stars (EG/?), and better 4th-7th best players than anyone else.
On that note, Motiejunas has been kicking arse lately. Don't know if he'll ever be a very good rebounder/defender, but he's getting a chance to show his skillset and just had 19/5 in 27 minutes to go along with one of the sweetest assists you'll ever see a big man have (@17 seconds) LINK
