@DanielLawler @Old Man Game @cemitten @greatwhitebuffalo I know what you mean.

@DanielLawler @Old Man Game @cemitten @greatwhitebuffalo I know I thought that too. I wanted so badly watching that for someone to bury a pickaxe in Fassbender's head. I think, unfortunately, anyone who had the nerve to try that or lead a revolt was singled out and killed sooner or later. Everyone else I'm sure lived in such fear after seeing the example made that they dared not speak up.

@DanielLawler @cemitten @greatwhitebuffalo While there were some differences from one individual slaveholder to another [and the movie essentially depicts that with Cumberbatch's character being at least nicer relative to Fassbender's sadistic character], the overall regime was maintained with savage brutality. Otherwise those people would have all said, "hey, I don't want to pick this cotton unless you pay me."

Finally got around to watching 12 Years a Slave. What a powerful and important movie. Reminded me of Schindler's List just in terms of reminding us of humanity's unfortunate tragic capacity to commit evil upon others based on arbitrary lines.

Not that I necessarily agree, but for the sake of argument, do we really expect to get better every single season. I think this franchise has had a ridiculously charmed life up till the last 12 months. We were due for a let down of sorts.

After this, revisiting the top 5 coaches debate from last night, Brooks could take a seat behind... Randy Whittman.

What was the article about? What were they saying about it?
17 hours, 47 minutes ago on Top 10 plays of 2013-14
Ha ha, never thought of it but now I won't be able to think of "whose ball is it" any other way. "Whose a good fan? Whose a good fan? That's right, you are!"

Brooks uses KD similar to how most people drive a rental car.
1 day, 5 hours ago on Thunder lock up No. 2, edging the Pistons 112-111
Jeez, you're really obsessed with stats aren't you? I was more concerned with losing winnable games than how KD was shooting the ball, his win shares, per, etc.
Thankfully, in the nba you're only ever 1 game away from snapping a losing streak or streak of poor play and starting something good.
@jooseppi I mean if all we wanted was what Dennis mentioned then pretty clearly those guys are better at the moment than Adams. Instead we got a guy who was supposed to be a project with room to get better.
1 day, 12 hours ago on Pistons vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@TempBoy Brandon @Four05 Now if guys like Cauley-Stein and Harrell will stop going back to school.
@Jooseppi @Old Man Game @Sustainable Parameters I think Presti picked Adams because he was the high upside guy on the board. Of everyone he, in theory, had the best chance if he panned out to be star or quasar. Lot of pressure to get someone really good and not just a role player if that was the centerpiece of the Harden trade.
@Sustainable Parameters Yeah but Dieng and Plumlee can already do those things. That's my point. Why wait?
@Julius F Wrek @Sustainable Parameters Hope he's got a big summer of workouts planned. Maybe he'll stay in the states and work out with other NBA bigs. It'd be great is he could work with Drummond maybe.
@[brooks' fault] @Sustainable Parameters I bet Prestie was hoping for better than that though. Otherwise why not pick a guy who could be ready to contribute more right away like Dieng or Plumlee. We're going to be waiting on a guy who's ceiling is a NBA journeyman?
@duhsweetness @Jooseppi I was gonna say, for real? He stunk when we needed him to step up.
1 day, 13 hours ago on Pistons vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@Navidson You know that's a good point. I think I will also. All I remember from last season is beating Charlotte by like 200 points and then Russ hurting his knee. The rest is a blur.
@ThunderYo @Tvaddic No shitty late games on weeknights for me.
@FunakiEjectsAnother Doc has a ring at least if you want to look at resumes.
@puffybutrbiscts @Old Man Game Yep. As soon as Drummond fouled out we were much better.
@shiki @Old Man Game @[brooks' fault] @Thunder S Okay, KD and Serge then. KD and Reggie Jackson. Pretty much KD and any above average player is better than what 80% of the league has at their disposal.
@[brooks' fault] @Thunder S Let's be real. There might be several coaches in the league better at Xs and Os. But we'd never know because those guys don't have KD and Russ.
Wow, Drummond is an animal. I'd kill to have a player like that on our team.
As far as the game, this team's defense is so bad they couldn't shut down windows XP.
They just had tae kwon do students for the half time show. It was up there with jazzercise.
1 day, 15 hours ago on Pistons vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Drummond may be the best center in the league very soon.
1 day, 16 hours ago on Pistons vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Should have traded Harden for Drummond.
Yep. Them's the breaks. Oh well.
1 day, 19 hours ago on Harden: Money was the deciding factor in leaving OKC
It was only 1 game. True. never want to read to much into one performance. that's the caveat.
1 day, 23 hours ago on Wednesday Bolts – 4.16.14
Did you watch the hoops summit? Dude could not impact a game against high school kids. He's probably 2 full seasons away from contributing in the nba.
Still can't believe this guy is going in the lottery after seeing him at the hoops summit.
No 35 minutes of Lamb though.
Well not drafted but there is Maynor.
@El Prez @DanielLawler Yeah, but Dieng is an eventual replacement to Perkins (eventual as in very soon if he were here), i.e. a starter. So that should in theory be more valuable. Then again, Plumlee could probably replace Perkins too.
2 days, 14 hours ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
@kiwi_thunder I wonder how long this dude can stay in the NBA. He's obviously terrible. But just big enough and just passable enough he may be able to stick around at least another season or so before he packs his bags for Turkey.
@KingofGivingupMoneyBalls @Old Man Game Even if that were true, do you really think picks 21 and 29 are the best they can get for him?
2 days, 15 hours ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
@KingofGivingupMoneyBalls Wait, for 2 late 1sts you get one of the best centers in the NBA? No my friend. The Nets wouldn't do that.
@FunakiEjectsAnother @DanielLawler Isn't it 7-6 since the all star break?
@qrex @Old Man Game @Julius F Wrek That's definitely a good one also.
@DanielLawler Looks pretty good. I'll definitely watch it.
@Julius F Wrek Because years of playing with Perkins have left them the impression they can't throw lobs to a center.
Seriously though, remember that lob he finished in his first summer league game? that was a thing of beauty.
@kiwi_thunder Yep. Adams and Adreian Payne working together for the first time. Should be fun.
@kiwi_thunder @Old Man Game @El Prez The 1 minute and change for Adams was staggeringly bizarre.
@kiwi_thunder @Old Man Game @El Prez It was Brooks being Brooks. No other way to explain it.
@El Prez @Old Man Game I think Brooks' scheme of switching everything along with overconfidence in Serge's ability to erase their mistakes leads to lackadaisical effort in denying dribble penetration, which in turn leads to guys having to help frequently and then recover to the perimeter which wears them out leading to a lack of effort.
@El Prez I've got a handle. This team's defense is absolute crap.
Greatest power forward of all time.
2 days, 16 hours ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
Well, if true that guy should obviously be fired.
