OKC Thunder Trade James Harden to Houston Rockets

The extremely young and immensely talented Oklahoma City Thunder are only months removed from an NBA Finals appearance in which they lost to the Miami Heat. Many NBA experts feel that they can make it back to the Finals, but on their quest for another appearance to the "Promised land", they'll have to do it without budding superstar and reigning Sixth Man of the Year James Harden who was dealt to the Houston Rockets in a blockbuster trade that went down on Saturday night.
Harden and the higher-ups within the Oklahoma City Thunder organization could not agree to terms on a new contract extension, so Harden was sent to Houston, where the team is willing to give James a max contract. But the Thunder also received great acquisitions as well - scoring machine Kevin Martin and UConn star Jeremy Lamb in addition to future NBA Draft picks.
What do you think of the trade and which team do you think benefits the most?
