We have never stopped debating the James Harden trade, even though it’s clear at this point that you should never trade a talent like James Harden, even if you have talents like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and even if you still nearly make the NBA Finals a few years later.
I fear we may never stop debating the Paul George-Victor Oladipo trade, either.
I mean, it’s a victory for the Indiana Pacers and general manager Kevin Pritchard that we call the Paul George-Victor Oladipo trade now — anything less would be rude, and who wants to be rude to Oladipo? Sunday was a perfect distillation. First, Oladipo led the the Pacers to an 18-point beatdown of LeBron James and the Cavaliers. It was James’ first loss in the opening round since 2012. And it felt nothing like a fluke. The Pacers are good, and Oladipo had 32 points on 11-19 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, and four steals.
This result gave those disposed to criticizing the Thunder’s offseason and Russell Westbrook’s leadership an opportunity to grandstand … until like 10 minutes later when Oklahoma City took the court in Game 1 against Utah and Paul George transformed into Playoff P before our eyes.
Playoff P had 36 points on 13-20 shooting (8-11 from three!) Article source: https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2018/4/16/17242084/paul-george-victor-oladipo-trade-nba-playoffs-gmib
