    Kind of interesting he’s coming back to OKC. I used to be a fan but he’s kind of annoyed me lately. Still have the bobble head of him they gave out his rookie year in my office.

    Presti is the best GM in the league. As far as a rebuild goes, I don't think you could have possibly set your team up any better than he has for future success. 15 first round pick and they still have an All-Star player on the roster. You have your future PG in SGA on the roster. Adams is still young (could be traded too though). They should be able to flip Gallinari at the trade deadline if he's healthy and playing as well as he did last year.

    It's hard to draft guys in the 20s to become stars so you can only fault Presti so much there.

    I disagree on Presti being the best GM out there. I'm not saying he's garbage, but he's made his mistakes. What it comes down to, as far as his reputation, for me anyways, is his shortsightedness on Harden basically cost the Thunder a dynasty. While I know there are tons of teams that would have loved to have had the success the Thunder did over this past decade, I feel as though it will continue to be overshadowed by this blunder.

    Harden never would've became the player he is today if he stayed in OKC. I think they should have gave it one more run but he was always going to leave.

    OKC has only missed the playoffs once. And never (before now) not had a superstar. Going to be a change for the fans. Curious how they react.

    Kind of the same point I made. That’s not normal, ESPECIALLY for a small market team. Hell, look at the Knicks.

    Totally agree OKC fans have been spoiled with really good basketball. I too wonder what it’s going to be like, fan support wise, as we start sucking. I’m general this state is used to winning teams, just look at Sooner football. I guess Poke fans know about losing so maybe they’ll handle it better.

    That's what happens when you have a great GM.

    Yooo imagine thinking Presti is a great GM when basically all of his non lottery picks in drafts suck. Name a good pick hes made in the last 5 years. These gonna be same place hes drafting with all those picks he traded George and Westbrook for. Hes never hired a good coach. Imagine going into this season with Billy D still as your coach LOL. He wasn't able to keep any of the MVPs on his team. So hes not able to attract or keep talent on his team, can't really draft and can't hire a coach to save his life. Holy **** he has the OKC fans completely swindled thinking he's on the same level as someone like RC Buford or even Danny Ainge.

    Forgot to mention lol Perkins and Carmelo trades. And the horrible Steven Adams contract. 25 million a year for 14 points LOOOOOOOOL This dude really thinks Presti a great GM.

    Honestly you make a lot of accurate points that many of the OKC fans I know agree with.

    How many small market teams not named San Antonio are able to keep elite talent?

    5 GMs easily better than the shitter Presti.
    Ujiri
    Buford
    Ainge
    Morey
    Bob Myers
    Dennis Lindsey
    Tim Connelly
    Sean Marks


    oh wait that was more than 5

    Please defend Presti coaching hires and the Steven Adams contract. Please defend the Carmelo Anthony and Kendrick Perkins trades. I wanna see you actually defend the moves Presti has made other than drafting 3 mvps and losing them all

    "hey you know what our teams desperately needs?"
    "Shooting?"
    "Lets trade for the inefficient chucker carmelo"


    wait you think it's weird I still lurk here when you check my twitter? Kinda weird you stalk me like that
