@KetelOne @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard stranger than Tako Falls?
Weird. Thon Maker dropped completely out of the ESPN top 60 recruiting rankings after being number 1. Wonder what the deal is with that. Given that Seventh Woods is 27th in that class, I'm pretty dang excited about college basketball in 16-17.

@White_kiwi_thunder @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @gokudabest @Thunder_Blue I think he'll be here for free agent recruiting.
Presti: Hey Ray, so glad you could come out and visit us. You'll really love OKC. This is Jeremy. If you sign with us, he'll be your personal assistant. He makes some top notch crepes *winks at Lamb*

@seth_22 Edit for accuracy:
We used to complain about Brooks' unimaginative KD iso's at the end of the game, but Sunday we ended the game with a nice pass to a wide open PLAYER who chucked an 18 footer from 23 feet away from the bucket.
Roberson should never be referred to as a shooter
10 hours, 17 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
Noel-Embiid-Oubre/Johnson/Winslow-Wroten-MCW is pretty nice going forward for the Sixers. Too bad that after they tank they'll either take Mudiay or Okafor and then be confused about what to do next to fill out their roster, resulting in yet another 2-3 years of tanking.
10 hours, 26 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
I'm really surprised that anybody chose anything other than #3, although #2 would be arguably just as bad.
10 hours, 30 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
Worse outcome to this season:
1) Tank, but not quite hard enough, get pick in 5-8 range
2) Go all in, miss playoffs, get last pick in lottery.
3) Go all in, make playoffs, lose in the first or second round.
I was going to put one more that ended up with somebody getting reinjured, but pretty sure that'd be the unanimous worst outcome.

@kevindurant35 Mario Hezonja. Everybody groans. Thunder win finals in 5. Everybody un-groans.
Just kidding. We wouldn't win finals in 5 with him. But we'd probably pick him and groan though. Those parts are accurate.

@_justin @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @W. Silva yes yes. There's a place in Atlanta called 6 feet under that has some really really good Shrimp grits. They also show premier league action on the weekends. Great establishment
@W. Silva grits with butter are pretty solid. My wife likes cheese in hers, which doesn't do it for me. But overall, grits are pretty good, especially when eaten with eggs and sausage

@Perk has a lot of value
Edited By Royce:
1. Reggie Jackson
Yes, Reggie missed a bunch of clutch shots and his three point shooting went away but he still was the best player on an undermanned team. That said, I still can't tell how much of his scoring, assisting, rebounding, and overall very good play is just being selfish to get a max deal, or is actually because he's good.
2. Serge Ibaka
Is the old Serge back? He dialed back on the threes and got back to scoring off offensive boards. Overall a solid week.
3. Anthony Morrow
You certainly like his aggressiveness and the fact that he brought something else than scoring/shooting this week. His efficiency is not where it should be.
4. Andre Roberson
Roberson obviously won't light up the scoreboard but his defensive impact could be felt from the beginning. His +/- of 4.3 lead the team.
5. Sebastian Telfair
Was Telfair the fifth best player on the team? Maybe not. His hot shooting (52-42-75) did keep the Thunder in games.
6. Steven Adams
Offensively a sneaky good week from him. His turnovers (2.0), his weak rebounding (4.8) and his free throw shooting (44% on 4 attempts) hurt this team.
7. Kendrick Perkins
5.3 points, 5.8 rebounds. Despite all the naysayers, some game is obviously still left, and he could be coming back into Boston form. Sorry, Marreese.
8. Nick Collison
Shot a team high 43% from three this week. This should put him at number 1, but I don't really feel like editing the rankings enough right now to show that. Just know he's number one for this week though.
9. Jeremy Lamb
If he were ever given the opportunity, this ranking is probably around number 1 or 2 depending on whether that cut into Collison's playing time. Still looks promising, and despite playing a little below expectations, I'm sure pnce he reaches 30+ mpg territory, we'll see some Jordan-esque games from him.
10. Lance Thomas
Thomas had some solid showings to begin the season. He was coming back to earth last week despite four starts and more than 24 minutes per game.
11. Ish Smith
Yeah. See you.
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Perry Jones (rest in peace), Mitch McGary, Grant Jerrett.
Also, Clay Bennett is not cheap, Harden left on his own accord, Scott Brooks is really smart and ya'll are way too mean to him, and just a reminder, the Thunder still have two top 5 players.
What say you?

No but really, I like tennis. Just don't follow it regularly enough to contribute much; therefore, by super mario rules, you may not discuss it!

@Dominator @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Chandler Bing. I'm not arguing with any of your points here. I just think it's funny/ depressing that we've gone back to the dark ages
17 hours, 55 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@Kong Lambchop @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @El Prez @Mr_F A) that defeats the purpose of the argument, given that it was to illustrate that players in developmental stages still need to be showing more signs of life than Lamb to take chances on developing with more minutes.
B) your stat reading skills are still obviously not very good, since if you eliminate the rookie season, Kobe still has 6 seasons with a higher fg% than KD's lowest (excluding KD's rookie season).
17 hours, 57 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@GREENE1148 [BLAME ADAMS FACTION] I guess 10% is technically better. Point is, people are surprised he airballed like it was Peja's airballed game winner back with the Kings. Robes can't shoot at all, why are we expecting him to be able to shoot?
17 hours, 59 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@Kong Lambchop @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @El Prez @Mr_F That's kind of funny, since Kobe has had 15 seasons with a FG% higher than KD's lowest of his career... Oh, and not to mention, 15 seasons in a row, from 1998 to 2013.
Your stat reading is butt.
18 hours, 1 minute ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@Dominator @Chandler Bing. we have officially re-entered the "are you better than Lazar" era lol
18 hours, 4 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@GlendaGonzales Robes is 1 for 12 from three on the year. That's not choking, that's just being terrible at shooting and being asked to shoot.
@Kong Lambchop @El Prez @Mr_F Lamb is butt. The sooner you accept this, the happier you will be with life. When KD was "needing the run to make things 'instincutal' and automatic", he was still putting up 21.1, a block, a steal, 4.5 rbds, and 2.5 asts per 36. As a rookie. On the other hand, Lamb's highest fg% of his career is the same as KD's rookie season, and across the board, the rest of Lamb's highest career marks still pale in comparison to KD as a rookie, when he needed to "feel out things" and get run.
You get the run you need to develop when you deserve it. There's a reason that late draft picks don't just randomly get good minutes and end up out of the league. It's not because it's not fair, it's because they aren't good enough.
You have patience and develop players who are worth developing. Lamb isn't that guy at this point.

@Chandler Bing. @W. Silva It's ok, Arsenal's going to sell Szczesny and use the money to buy Ibrahimovic. Then they'll have one of the best players on earth.
18 hours, 13 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@Dominator @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard If they played one on one, the final score would be 0 to 0 and both would foul out.
18 hours, 15 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@Kong Lambchop @d21 (Censorship victim) @Mr_F Except like... Reggie is good usually, so this argument makes no sense.
@Dominator Orton is awful. Him and Lance are interchangeable.
18 hours, 17 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
Robes is 1 for 12 from three this year Brooks. No, one shot isn't going to break his confidence; however, when you've literally missed all but one three you've taken in a season, it might effect your confidence in your shooting just a wee bit.
