USA Today article on if this is the Thunder's best team yet...

@Perk-Punt @okcjim Ibaka has been awful on Lebron. Couldn't be any worse.
2 hours, 49 minutes ago on Thunder vs. Grizzlies: Pregame Primer
@Perk-Punt @okcjim He's not a superstar. He's a physical freak though. It's possible he could be our best option to guard Lebron without him being a superstar.
@Perk-Punt @DoomsDay @okcjim He's a better choice than Ibaka, Harden and possibly Thabo.

@Kong Lambchop @claeys I suppose Harden, Thabo and Ibaka are better options?

@Perk-Punt @okcjim We've tried Harden on him, Thabo and Ibaka. I'd choose PJ3 over any of those guys. If Lebron is on he's destroying anyone in the league but PJ3 physically has a better chance than any of those guys.

@Perk-Punt @okcjim Boozer abused Ibaka and Collison in that same game. Lebron in the low post is nothing like Boozer in the low post. George and Leonard held their own against Lebron in the low post. Boozer would abuse those guys.

@Perk-Punt @okcjim That's crazy talk.

@Perk-Punt @okcjim Thabo is 205 and PJ3 is 235 at the least (he was listed at this weight last year but he looks bigger this year). I'm pretty comfortable saying PJ3 is stronger.

@Aren't @Jooseppi He was good against the Pacers. He's a situational center and Brooks has done a better job this year. Still work to be done there though.

@Undeniable Greatness @ Luke @okcjim
Darnell has said this for awhile too. Why stick to a lineup that's proven not to be effective against certain teams just because that's what you always do? Is it worth getting in a hole to start a game just for the sake of saying you have done it this way forever so we'll keep doing it?

How we match up with the Heat this year...
Rotation this year for us...
Russ, Thabo, KD, Serge, Perk
Heat... Chalmers, Wade, Lebron, Battier, Bosh
So to start we have Russ/Chalmers, Thabo/Wade, KD/Lebron, Ibaka/Battier, Perk/Bosh
Here is where the problems have started in the past. Ibaka showed once again last night he's one of the worst perimeter defenders in the league. He just doesn't defend the 3 point line well. We haven't wanted to put KD on Lebron in the past so he's guarded Battier, Thabo has guarded LeBron, Russ has guarded Wade and Ibaka Chalmers.
Thabo/Lebron is a big time loss for us because they post him and Thabo gets crushed. Ibaka gets abused by Chalmers from outside and they run Bosh off picks and he gets open looks pretty easily too.
Going small fixes most of those problems pretty quickly. KD also needs to guard Lebron. For this team to be successful and for his legacy in general.
Russ/Chalmers, Thabo/Wade, Lebron/KD, Reggie/Battier and Serge/Bosh. That looks so much better. Another reason why we need PJ3 to be a part of the rotation is the Miami Heat. 6 more fouls for a guy physically that comes close to matching up with Lebron. Would you rather have PJ3 or Harden on Lebron? Pj3 or Serge? Honestly I'd rather have PJ3 than Thabo on Lebron because he's bigger, stronger and longer (tougher to post).
Bring Adams in to negate Birdman, Lamb/Allen, This team can match up with Miami better if we manage things correctly. Roberson is another guy we can stick on Lebron/Wade if we get into foul trouble.

How we match up with the Heat this year opposed to last year and the year before...

Anything besides getting hurt that Fisher can do to lose his job to PJ3?
Fish 13.2 MPG 2.6 PPG 1.4 RPG .91 Def rating (according to 82games) PER 6.3 (below Perk's PER) (34% FG 14% 3FG)
PJ3 8.8 Mpg 3.5 PPG 1.8 RPG .93 Def rating (82games) PER 17.6 (61 FG% 60 3FG)

Let me answer this one for Chrissy, yes he's gotten better each year and he is better at what he does than he was last year and he's a perfect fit with Russ and KD because they get so much attention.

I wonder if Chicago amnestied Boozer if OKC would have any interest in him (if we amnestied Perk).

I'm not sure he's been right all year.
