I pity the fool who wears a naked chin
@d21 Good move by Gordon. His stock will never be as high as it got this season. Out of that group of 8 at the top of the pile, I think he had the most to lose by staying

@JoBloggs If you would take off the intangibles tag line, your stats would carry so much more weight in these Perk arguments
10 hours, 25 minutes ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
@okcjim I don't think you put a number on it. It's moreso based on players available. Moving up to 20 is good if it gets you a guy you need vs two guys you kind of want, just like moving up to 10 is good enough if that's what you need to do to get the same guy

@Turfright this isn't new though. for as "savvy" as Fish is, he's the king of the boneheaded, completely nonsensical play
11 hours, 2 minutes ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
@Legendary_Dork if Fish and Perk left, I actually think Brooks would do a pretty decent job as long as we didn't get hit by injuries. He's bad at adjusting, but part of that is idiotic allegiance to what he knows. Take that away, and his decisions will be a bit easier.

List your Thunder squad in order of most likeability to least likeability for you:
1a) Steven Adams
1b) Nick Collison
6) Everybody else
I don't like Perk, but mostly because of how he's been used on the team. I think personality-wise he's not my favorite, but he doesn't seem like he'd be overly annoying to work with. If I didn't like everybody else on the team so much, he'd be ranked higher. However, Fish just gets on my nerves. Even when he's playing awesome, I'm really only cheering for him because he's doing good things for my team.
Also just noticed I almost always call Steven Adams and Nick Collison by their full names. It's like a tribe called quest, you gotta say the whole thing.

@ThunderGunner @Perk has a lot of value @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard yeah I knew about Deng being Sudanese. Completely didn't realize Ben Gordon had british roots. And Joel Freeland... well, who really cares about him anyway lol

@thelaughingwiseman I'm not big into the political stuff, but sports stuff and strength and conditioning material I'd always read the in print version vs the audio or video. Seeing it seems to make it stick a lot better for me.
I was always like that in class. I'd just tune the teacher out and read my book and pick up the concepts much better
11 hours, 56 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 4.15.14
@L0rv @FallenOSIRIS @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard It depends. If it's crank that NayNay, there's a chance Russ gets too crunk and KD starts dancing at an inopportune time. Interesting strategy. If nothing else, it would certainly neutralize the Spur killer, Reggie

Am I abnormally old school because I prefer reading articles to watching videos or listening to podcasts most of the time?
12 hours, 13 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 4.15.14
@L0rv @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard Nope, Russ heats up too fast for a freeze ray, and even when KD can't buy a bucket, he's still on fire
12 hours, 19 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 4.15.14
@d21 I hate Domino's pizza, no matter how cool this may sound
@L0rv I love Pop, but zero. There is no way to stop Russ and KD, secret or not, other than to hope they, or their teammates, stop themselves.
12 hours, 20 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 4.15.14
@Lambo Serge the III @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @FallenOSIRIS @Theoo yeah, in the same way that Butler is a 3 point specialist. Stretch of 3 games without a miss, next 5 games goes 20% from 3, then a couple awesome games shooting, then a month where he's 1 for 20, then some more hot streaks, totalling an overall 3 pt percentage of in the high 30's so he looks like a pretty good shooter
12 hours, 21 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 4.15.14
@Lambo Serge the III @AIaska @Theoo Russ is criminally underrated as a passer, especially this year.
Now as a decision maker, there's argument to be had, but in terms of court vision and executing ridiculous passes, Russ is right up there with the very best

@thelaughingwiseman If Brooks performs average to above average, I think we've got what it takes to win the finals. If he gets shook again though, we're going to be pretty unhappy that we got our full roster back and signed Caron.

@d21 yeah really dumb move, especially when your halmark selling point is potential. Potential's only good when there's a cloud of mystique around you by either a) being young and having physical tools or b) not getting PT in the NBA but having physical tools and being kind of young. It doesn't work that way when you're kind of young and actively playing in college putting up decent but not incredible stats.
It also doesn't help that he already regressed statistically in a couple categories this year. If that happens again next year, he'll become the big man version of Peyton Siva except not undersized.
@Julius F Wrek Dwight Howard and James Harden, as well as Damian Lillard, Kevin Love, and Lebron James to bolster our second unit

@Oboy why has he not changed his twitter handle to Dougie McBuckets yet? That's an instant 10 spot bump up in draft position...
.... hmm maybe Presti told him not to, knowing this. Presti and his jedi draft tricks!
@DanielLawler @Bryson did you just say "best college finisher I have ever seen"?????
@d21 what happened??? this sounds hilarious
@d21 this is a good thing. I'm sure he hurt himself a bit with his play, but I still think his stock rises again once teams start bringing him in for workouts.

@f5alcon @d21 I hope he stays with Nike. JB makes some pretty awful shoes for their "face of the brand" guys.
@d21 meh. The only downer to that for me is that he was mocked ahead of most of the guys I liked so they might go higher

@Perk has a lot of value Think there are too many factors at play to call it one way or another. I wouldn't mind seeing him back for cheap, but that depends largely on what happens with our backcourt personnel this summer

@DanielLawler It would probably involve everybody in the lottery trading into the 2014 draft.. except Cleveland. They'd still pick Anthony Bennett, regardless what hindsight says
