The wheels began turning on Russell Westbrook’s trade to Houston following Paul George’s trade to the Clippers.  According to The Athletic’s Sam Amick, Westbrook reached out to James Harden about a reunion almost immediately following George’s trade.

As we all know, that trade was made a reality in a blockbuster trade on Thursdsy night that sent Chris Paul packing to the now decimated Thunder.

The NBA has handed the keys to the league to the players.  Good luck getting them back anytime soon.  This wild team swapping era is here and it will be for the foreseeable future.
