  • Remember, free agency comes back upon you pretty quick in this league.

  • You know Kevin Durant's in the second year of a four year deal and getting Harden.

  • But now, if you get Irving back on and he's back Thio playing at a high level, you have a 123 Perhaps unlike we've seen in this league in the modern era, but certainly it comes at a steep price.

  • Four first round picks, four picks, swaps, the Pixar unprotected one of those picks is coming from Cleveland.

  • This is part of a three way deal, really a four way deal.

  • Caris Levert goes from the Nets to the Indiana Pacers and Indiana since Victor Oladipo to Houston.

  • So a lot of moving parts in this deal.

  • And it is going to be a fascinating to see Harden and Kevin Durant reunited, uh, in Brooklyn.

  • Obviously, they played in Oklahoma City together.

  • And then Kyrie Irving likely potentially.

  • You would expect at some point as part of that mix, too.

  • Wow.

  • As all this was coming downwards on your Twitter, it was like looking around like, Wow, what else is going to be added to this?
