Sometimes, you don't need to say the most ridiculous thing possible on the internet to make sure people pay attention to how you feel about something.

Pate essentially laughed at that idea.

Well, on Thursday, Westbrook was traded to the Rockets. And while Twitter was going wild, Pate was trying to decide how he could potentially avoid doing what he said he would in this scenario.

But, he is coping with the idea and seems prepared to go for it. If he can afford it.

I wonder how happy Rockets fans would be if Westbrook had his fourth straight season averaging a triple-double.
