I'm out, but to summarize: I don't think Durant should be kicked off OU. He was in DC when that mess happened, but at least we got three titles by keeping James Haren and that garden gnome.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third Word. Just pointing out that OU hasn't had any more problems than Texas recently.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third Everyone seems to giving Strong a lot of credit for kicking rapists off the team. If you've read that story.... Strong is doing what every other coach would do.

@MJOKC Agreed. It needs to stop. Totally unacceptable. I was just pointing out that OU is not exceptional in this regard.

@MJOKC Who did Frank Shannon hit? I don't think that was part of the accusation. What he allegedly did was terrible too. 


Almost every football program has these problems though. Texas had far more happen in the last week than OU has had happen in the last couple years.

@MJOKC Has it happened more than once? (And, yes, that's too much, but you make it seem like it's systemic).

@harmlesslyfatal http://westbrookframes.com/ @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @MJOKC Another injury could have happened. Can't just look at it like that. All just guessing.

@harmlesslyfatal http://westbrookframes.com/ @Grolgar @Tvaddic That's a pretty bleak way of looking at it. It's more likely his value continues to go up. Even if hurt, he'd have some value. He had no injury history.

@mattchant @Grolgar @Tvaddic Everything indicates Harden would have taken the max. 


EDIT: Or are you talking about OKC? Supposedly, that offer was on the table. You don't offer if it's not real. 

17 hours, 31 minutes ago on Steven Adams, New Zealand ambassador to America

@Tvaddic @Grolgar Who reported that? I've never seen that reported anywhere. Just pure speculation. The offer to Harden would have made OKC a tax team. So, seems inaccurate.

@MJOKC "Championships" as in plural. That's a big assumption. We couldn't have afforded that core long term. Again, two seasons was doable. Probably not three.

@Tvaddic Just max him out. We could of afforded it for one freakin' season and had Harden for two more seasons.

Since the trade happened, I've never understood Presti's rush to deal Harden. Re-sign him and play with him for two more seasons (one on his rookie deal and one on his new contract). It's very likely Harden's value would have been higher and there could have been a championship in there. So again, why rush it?

@MJOKC It's a stretch to say Harden was the top player at his position when he was traded. Wade and Kobe were widely considered better at the time. There was also some uncertainty about how how he would handle more responsibility.

@[weed wolf faction] I'm assuming you're kidding. Did you hear Chuck Klosterman's critique of LeBron's letter on the BS Report? I thought he made some pretty good points. 


He made fun of LeBron for tying the economic strength of northeast Ohio to his decision among other things.

Any suggestions to replace Grant Long? I'd like someone like David Locke. I've been listening to some of his Locked on Jazz podcasts lately and it would be great to have someone as fanatic about the NBA as him. I suspect the Thunder wouldn't want anyone as analytically inclined as him though. They probably like their basketball fans dumb as rocks. ;)

If you had to use the combined first (e.g., Russell) and last name (e.g., Durant) of any Thunder players and give your first born son that name, what would it be? (And I know it sucks your son won't have your last name, but get over it)


I'll go with Sebastian Jackson.

@okcjim Hopefully Brooks isn't so stiff next year and just uses Perk situationally against Grizzlies, Rockets, etc. That will open up minutes for McGary, Collison, and Adams. There are some games in which Perk serves no purpose.

@Sustainable Parameters I'll be there. I think they're claiming this is the biggest food truck festival in the US now. 25,000 last month and they're expecting near 40,000 at some point. It's going to be hot today though...


There's also a block party just a block over at McNelli's for Mustang Brew's 5th anniversary.
