TRADE RESULTS

Rockets get: Russell Westbrook

Thunder get: Chris Paul, first-round picks in 2024 and 2026

It was the end of an 11-year run for Westbrook in Oklahoma City where he won the 2017 MVP, made eight All-Star teams and served, ultimately, as the face of the franchise. But OKC was more than that for Westbrook -- it was also where he made his only NBA Finals appearance in 2012. That was the last time he and James Harden played together. Now, they are reuinted in Houston. 

But will How much better, if at all, does the move make the Rockets? Will the duo be able to co-habitate as two of the NBA's best, ball-dominant guards and achieve championship-caliber success the way they did seven seasons ago? Are the Rockets now better than The Bucks? Sparky and Gary discussed and took your calls on The Wendy's Big Show.
