The Phoenix Suns just made a massive splash with a blockbuster trade right before midnight on Wednesday night.
By trading Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, and four first-round picks, the Suns acquired 13-time All Star Kevin Durant and SF T.J. Warren.
For those who were up for the earth-shaking announcement, the reactions were priceless.
While some claim that the Suns absolutely won the trade…
Like how do you get Kevin Durant without having to give up at least one of yo best 3 players lmaooo

Others, of course, think the Suns dropped the ball by giving away some extremely talented young talent…
@mikal_bridges and Cam Johnson. Like honestly thank you both. You guys were a part of this culture and what made us the team we currently are. I'm devastated to see you both go. Nothing but Love. Thank you.

I'm praying for a failed physical to keep #MikalBridges and #CamJohnson in Phoenix 🙏
