Kevin Martin has never played on a team with anyone of kevin durant caliber, and especially not BOTH kevin durant and Russell westbrook. he will be the 3rd/4th option behind/infront of ibaka , his role will be decreased just like hardens was. he will be getting wide open and efficient shots considering his best players are not the ron artests brad millers of the world. this is not a shitty deal we got freakin Jeremy lamb and lottery picks out of this who is arguably the best sg in the class. the magic got who?
Why do people keep bringing up Kevin Martin as if he's expected to be a star on the team. He has an expiring contract, if he's garbage--he's gone. Also playing on a contender can make a HUGE difference in his play, dude isn't even 3rd option more like 4th.
I'm glad Maynor is back, since we lost Harden he will definitely be a welcome sight this season.
I expect Ibaka to be that 3rd option and Perk......
Lamb and PJIII could be special if both reach their potential
Think about my comment. You're getting someone significantly worse at everything except defense. Harden was by no means an outstanding perimeter defender, but he was tough.
Kevin Martin is going to get banged on and destroyed by everybody, and if his awkward *** flick shot isn't falling, you just have a dude chucking up shots. He makes noone on the floor better either. You're basically getting a Rip Hamilton with more range and less smarts.
Not even hating, but I'm surprised OKC fans are failing to realize how shitty this deal is. There's no way Kevin Martin will even come close to matching the output of Harden.
Tough Loss, Ibaka missed alot of open shots and he needs to attack the rim more.
Russ had quite a few turnovers and took alot of tough shots
KD was okay but that turnover
I wish Lamb played but whatever
Could have been much worse. Russ needs to just slow down sometimes, he goes way to quick & ends up making stupid mistakes. Then he gets frustrated & loses focus on what he should be doing. KD should have been more aware when going to get the ball from Russ. Ibaka had a great pre-season where he looked like his shooting had improved so much, then couldn't get going in this game.
On the plus side KD had a great game rebounding. Martin played pretty well considering he doesn't know the offense yet.
