Excellent and clear tracing of the moves up to date. If I had to project to one year from now, not including next year’s draft and trades, my guess OKC will add at least 10 wins based solely on the physical maturity of their lean kids, experience improved shooting and Chet’s and Josh’s jumps. But I can see Tre being an exceptional scorer and in two year Dieng turning into an a Giannis-like player. He has everything going for him. Thanks for your terrific work. Chuck

Appreciate the effort. That first line needs some work though.

Has anyone at the site thought about all the mental health or neuro-divergent related verbage is used by the collective? I know you're just hype but it sounds more ableist than you might realize. I take it for granted that you do not intend offense.

Love this! Thanks for putting it all together. Now I can just send this article to friends instead of pulling out my white board for a 2 hour lesson...

One editing note is that KD left on July 4th. The Ibaka trade was made while it was thought that KD was still going to be around. It wasn't a response to him leaving.
