The Atlantic Files #165: Russell Westbrook needs new scenery

This week on The Atlantic Files:

The NBA off-season is in full swing and everyone is going crazy with the teams that they are currently on. Russell Westbrook and PJ Tucker are both frustrated in Houston, Jrue Holiday is getting shopped around, Chris Paul is weighing his options, and Victor Oladipo is straight-up asking teams if he can play with them.

Ever since Daryl Morey left Houston, the team has seen nothing but turmoil. Westbrook voiced his worries about the Rockets’ future and now he wants out. On top of that, PJ Tucker was ‘irate’ about his contract all season and now he wants to either get paid or go somewhere else.

In other news, Jrue Holiday is still getting shopped around for the best deal that New Orleans can get. He’s a guy that could fit into any team’s system, so it’s not surprising that a lot of teams are interested.

Chris Paul is also looking at other teams he might be interested in playing with. This is a veteran that could really elevate a championship contender and also help along with a younger team. He showed in Oklahoma City that he can really gel a younger team and make them overachieve.

Finally, we have Victor Oladipo allegedly going up to other teams, IN FRONT OF HIS TEAMMATES, and asking them if he can play with their team. The audacity of this man!

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
