“My first reaction was shock, fear, and I was angry,” WFAN host Evan Roberts said on the radio when details of the deal took place on Wednesday. [Sean Marks]Which has been talking about culture for 87 years and he will exchange every draft pick – because you know they are all gone. All the selected figures that were created are gone. Caris LeVert is gone. They are all gone. Sean Marks swaps everyone? ”
Not quite but close
Marks traded LeVert ̵1; and Jarrett Allen with three first-round qualifiers and four first-round draft picks for Rockets in exchange for Harden, who will team up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

That deal was a disaster for netizens, who eventually emerged from the depths of that deal when they signed Durant and Irving to join young players like LeVert and Allen.

Robert’s mood didn’t improve as the group continued.
“Sean Mark, don’t you remember?” Roberts said. “You got this. [situation]Do you not know what this will lead to? You are headed down the road of doom. Harden and Durant may be gone in a year and a half. [with opt-outs] And I’m not sure this gives them a better chance to win trophies… I have a nightmare again. ”
Roberts admitted that at the time of his trade with Boston he “loved” the movement.
This time, Roberts said, “They win better. [They’ve got] Two seasons to win the title [If they do]Taped and used with me But today is a sad day. “
