@GotFunaki @okcjim @Old Man Game No that's why I said by the end of the year. He would obviously have to be tearing up the D league and playing will in limited Thunder minutes.

@Old Man Game @okcjim I agree he is better suited to pay the 4 but I think he'd be fine as a 2nd team 5 against other 2nd team 5's.

@Old Man Game @okcjim @Greeed Our season is the playoffs so everything we do during the season should be geared to playing our best in the playoffs.

@Old Man Game @okcjim @Greeed Well his typical response in the past would have been "we've won x many games with Perk as the starter. Blah blah blah.". The fact that he didn't respond like that means there is a chance Adams is the starter;
Adams played more play minutes than Perk in each of the last 2 playoffs series last year and is obviously the center of the future here. I wish we'd start him from the beginning to get used to that rotation spot and the minutes he will get in the playoffs.

If some how McGary works his way into the rotation by the end of the year, whose spot does he take? Perkins or Collison? IF he takes Perk's minutes it would be with Adams taking Perk's starting spot and then McGary taking Adams 2nd team minutes. Obviously if he took Collison's minutes it would be with the 2nd group as well with Adams.
I think best case scenario for us would be Adams taking Perk's starting minutes and McGary taking Adams 2nd team minutes. Adams would already make a better starting center than Perk and I think McGary would add some needed offensive skill to the 2nd group.

Apparently Joe Mixon OU prize recruit may have punched a girl last night at 2:30am. Not good.

Obviously neither does yours because Minn stunk last yr.

I know what it means! I'm not buying it. If a team gives up the 5th most ppg in the nba and allows the 2nd highest FG% against in the league, any stat that makes them look like a decent defense is a dumb one.
I know what adjusted for pace means and I'm not buying it. Minn also allowed the 2nd highest FG% in the league last year. Their defense is not good.
If you adjust for pace, a team like Minn who gives up the 5th most points in the league actually looks like a good defensive team when it's obvious they are not.
Evan Turner played on a horrible team and took a ton of shots just like all the Lakers did. That's got nothing to do with this.
You give up a ton of points as a team and you won't win many games I don't care what your pace is.
So the key if you give up a ton of points and don't play any defense is just to run a bunch. That way you can give up the most points in the league and still look good to the stats guys? That makes sense.
Adjusted for pace I assume? Cleveland better run a bunch so their defense will not look as bad as it actually is.
So if you run up and down the court it doesn't matter how many points you give up? Miami was 4th in points allowed last year.
Which advanced stat should I have used? You allow other teams to score a bunch you probably won't win.
Hard to smother someone when you are never together. WNBA is in the middle of their season.
THeir bigger problem wasn't offense it was defense. THey were 26th in the NBA in points allowed. The only teams worse were the Lakers, the 76ers, Detroit and Denver. Even the Bucks were better.
Not if you are going against great teams. Average gets your ass kicked against the Spurs.
Prove that he's good. Average is not good if you are trying to win a championship. Even if I give you that he's average. Irving is bad and Love is average and they're playing in crunch time throughout the playoffs. THey will get abused by good teams.
Love is not a good defender either.

What have you seen that makes you think they're anything but defensive liabilities?
Irving and Love neither are very good defensively at all. Wiggins is suppose to be at the very least athletic enough to be a plus defender. Would you rather have 2 big defensively liabilities in Love and Irving or Wiggins rookie contract and potential plus defensive abilities along with the cap space you save from not having Love's max deal on the books? Or would you rather have Love?
@TempBoy Brandon @okcjim The good thing about PJ is he can switch to a guard or forward and we're still ok most of the time. That's a big thing. He could potentially be in our closing lineup at some point if he gets consistent IMO.
Russ/reggie/PJ/KD/Serge may be our most well rounded offensive/defensive lineup.
One of the reasons I thought PJ would have been good in the Spurs series besides him being probalby the best physical match to guard Diaw is his ability to either stay in front of smaller guards or if he does get beat he's long enough to block their shots at the rim. Another reason IMO he's a better match at the 3 than Lamb. When we play the Clippers (Crawford) or Spurs (take your pick) or other teams with a good 2nd team scorer would you rather have Lamb/Morrow guarding that guy or PJ?
@CanadianThunderFan I'll be interested to see how good Dallas is. They've made some good additions.
Seems like Darnell is pretty convinced Lamb is and will be ahead of Jones. If you've seen some of the highlights of d-league games where he's throwing everything in I'm sure that's why. His problem just like PJ though is consistency. I think if Roberson starts and Jackson and Morrow are the 2nd team 1 and 2 then PJ makes more sense. Perry is a much better defender and has been shooting the ball better. PJ looks like he's putting the work in to me honestly and Lamb may not have matured as much. PJ makes more sense to me with that 2nd group right now. Having PJ in the rotation we're also better equipped with him to guard a stretch 4 if we need to. Just brings more to the table.

The more I see of Lamb the more I think he may be a worse version of Swaggy.

This was from Royce's article after we signed Morrow. Is this saying Morrow hit 76 of his 106 spot up 3's or 76 of 190?
Note: In his limited time with the Thunder, Butler got 141 spot-up opportunities per Synergy — 108 of them 3s — and knocked down 52. Last season with the Pelicans, Morrow had 190 spot-up chances — 106 of them 3s — and hit 76 of them
He's folding his arms under his biceps to push em out a little.
Jones and Roberson basically both auditioned last year when Thabo was hurt. PJ started 5 or 6 games and then Roberson got his chance and they picked Roberson. Roberson does more little things well and brings it every night, every play. PJ wasn't as consistently 1000 mph although he did play well and they had similar results they chose Roberson and he ended up starting more games.
Is a shooting guard expected to shoot better because it's in his title? Should a PG be able to score points because point is in his title? Is a small forward suppose to be small? Power forward suppose to be powerful?

He's already 2 of the 3. He's solid defensively and a great rebounder. What's your definition of being a competent offensive player?

Suns hang up and laugh
Say we meet the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals again next year. Obviously not a given by any stretch. The West will be tougher next year than it was this year.
Assuming both teams are completely healthy for the series. Ibaka is completely healthy for the entire series.
Assuming Roberson turns into what the Thunder hope he does. A solid defensive player that defends well, rebounds really well and is competent offensively. He plays well enough to allow our 2nd unit to stay together unlike last year when we had to move Reggie to the first unit (killing our 2nd). Obviously no Fisher or Butler but we add Morrow. Assume a 2nd unit of Reggie, Morrow, PJ, Collison Adams.
