I have already admitted I was wrong several times. I do not think groveling is necessary. My main concern was CP3's health. I still think this would have been a very good team with Rubio, but easily concede that it is much better with CP3. Even if Paul gets injured, it was worth it just for the contribution he has made to the changing culture. The culture was changing already with Monty and James Jones.I guess it's crow eating time.
That's ALOT of ifs for 85 mil.
Granted CP would be great when/IF he played.
IF he stays healthy
IF he and Book are compatible
IF we can keep the #10
IF we can get the PF we need
IF he's the same CP that played last year with a 3 month break
IF he can bump his assists over 6.5(with our shooters should be ok)
If our offence doesn't slow too much.
If he doesn't strangle Ayton for being too soft and go to jail
I really dislike cp3, BUT in a suns uniform, he might be a great addition to our core. We have a core right now, who aren't rookies, who aren't veterans but right in that spot where its make or break time. Time to get over that hump. Are we already headed that direction, yes. Will we lose Oubre anyway, probably.
Rubio: good vision, a little injury prone, bad shooting at times
CP3: great vision, a lot injury prone, better shooting
I'm not sure how we make up for Oubre, unless we move Cam up and fill with a draft pick.
CP3 is the singular reason why OKC had a better season that anyone could have imagined.
I voted yes.
I see no way Haliburton makes it to 10. He is basically the safest pick in the whole lottery, hard to believe 9 teams in front of us pass that up.
