Russell Westbrook Should Get Traded to One Team, and One Team Only

If Russell Westbrook gets traded, where should he land before this season starts?

With Paul George out of OKC, a lot of rumors have been floating around that Russell Westbrook wants out, and that OKC just might oblige him. But where would be the perfect landing spot for Westbrook? Would it be another team out West? Nah I doubt it. Should it be Cleveland? Nah, we already have too many guards. Well, what about New Orleans to pair up with Zion? Nah, I just don’t see it happening. Russell Westbrook is going to one team, and one team only.

That’s right folks, the Miami Heat! That would be completely amazing to see Russell Westbrook in Miami, and we all know for a fact that Pat Riley has his grimy little hands in the mix. Now, there are a few complications that are presented in this potential deal. For starters, OKC has a few Miami draft picks including a 2021 first round pick, and it would be OKC’s best interest for Miami to be as bad as possible, but with the way things are shaking up in OKC and the lack of talent surrounding Westbrook, it’s looking like it’s time to let the very expensive and aggressive peacock fly his way to Miami.

Which brings me to my next point. Westbrook is set to make $38.5 million next season, meaning Miami would have to trade away something nice, and something that could get some money off the books, in order to be able to hold Westbrook’s contract. It’s not impossible.

All signs so far have pointed toward the idea that OKC is willing to send Westbrook to a place of his choosing, instead of some low-win team like the Pistons, the Magic or even the Knicks. But seeing Westbrook go to one of those teams would be tough to watch.

I want the Miami trade to happen, not just because the Heat would be better, but also due to the sheer entertainment value. You would have three guys who all consider themselves “The Man” in Westbrook, Jimmy Butler, and Dion Waiters. Seeing all of those guys fight in the huddle, exchange in the occasional “twitter beef”, and reach the playoffs only to lose in the first round every year would be the best.

With all of the trades and free agency that have made so much sense and made teams so much better this offseason, the NBA world deserves a little bit of good ole fashioned non-basketball entertainment. Do the right thing Russ, take your talents to South Beach and play with the Miami Heat.

Cheers, Jiggy

Lol Tyson literally lost every single time he ever fought an elite boxer, and a few times against non elite boxers. But he’s gonna destroy Ali? Not even close? Not a chance. This dude literally asked “who did Ali ever beat?” Lol who the hell did Tyson ever beat??? Tyson fights were wildly entertaining, but he’s super overrated.

Joe Frazier beat Ali and Tyson is the same prototype fighter with more power

people riding Ali act like he never got touched up, he never fought anyone with KO power like Mike.
