But Westbrook’s super-max carries huge risk on the back end, and Presti is no fool. He will not close off any options.

That said, it’s possible Presti never finds an offer rich enough to move Westbrook. Even deals that look good — say, a completely theoretical Knicks offer of Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox and two unprotected first-round picks — could morph into pu-pu-platter of blah within two or three seasons. Westbrook guarantees competitiveness and fun.

If George comes back, the Thunder payroll would rocket toward $240 million including luxury tax. It would normalize in 2019-20, after Anthony’s hideous deal expires, and perhaps the Thunder’s deeper-pocketed-than-you-think ownership would swallow a one-year bill.

But that isn’t a run-of-the-mill tax bill. That is some Warriors- and Cavs-level indulgence. It feels like something would have to give, though it’s unclear what. Anthony is going to surrender only so much in a buyout. Waiving him via the stretch provision brings more relief, but the Thunder might feel squeamish embarrassing him like Authentic Jim Plunkett Jersey that.

So how soon will that happen? It should be around the sixth game of the season that Brees will break Manning’s record for career passing yards. Manning’s all-time record is 71,940 yards. Brees has 70,445 yards. Mikko Rantanen Jersey That’s a difference of 1,495 yards, so if Brees averages about 270 yards a game this year like he did last year, he’ll break the record in Week Seven, after the Saints’ Week Six bye.

Brees should break the career record for completions even sooner: Brees has completed 6,222 passes in his career, while Brett Favre owns the record at 6,300. Brees is 78 completions away, which at last year’s pace of about 24 completions a game would get Brees the record in Week Four. Brees is 875 attempts away from Favre’s record, so it will probably be 2019 before he can break that record.

And in the final of the big career passing records, Brees and Tom Brady are exactly tied: They’re both at 488 career touchdown passes, 51 away from Manning’s career record of 539.

Yeah, but Durant said …
