    Where does Russell Westbrook end up?

    I would love to see him and Jimmy in Miami to see if their personalities could coexist.

    The only way I want him in Minnesota is if it can unload Wiggins and Dieng.

    Even at that, I don't want him. You can't win with him being your primary decision maker. Though you can also argue Minnesota is never going to win anyway, so might as well make it interesting.

    I think Detroit makes sense.

    Would love to see the Miami experiment because it would assuredly self-destruct in no time.

    Does his personality really coexist with anybody?

    Yes and no. He is a strange cat, but I don't think people see Russ as a bad teammate. His on-court, tunnel-visioned, 157% effort at all times demeanor when he plays doesn't mesh well with many.

    Didn’t Jimmy Butler go to Miami to be the man?

    Jimmy Butler is always the man, never forget that. He is all about winning. Don't believe it? Just ask him.

    He would crush KAT’s spirit the way Mike did Kwame.

    I think Miami is the logical landing spot if he goes anywhere.

    Will OKC have to give up picks to move him and his monster contract?

    I don't think OKC would have to give up anything other than Russ. There are numerous teams with interest from what I have read. One of the many things that I find interesting with him potentially going to Miami is that OKC just got some of Miami's future draft picks so theoretically you would think they wouldn't want to make Miami better.

    You truly think they will have to give up picks to trade Westbrook? They most likely will get more picks, not have to also give them up. If that is the case their is no reason to trade him, if they are also going to have to give stuff up to get rid of him.

    I don't think Miami has the most to offer but Riley is going to be the most aggressive.

    Milwaukee would be an interesting place for him to go.
