@The McAdams Bros @Grolgar Why? Did you watch the playoffs? Russ was clearly the best PG playing.

@Tvaddic Dragic stays healthy, which should be a part of anyone's evaluation of Bledsoe. Health often is overlooked. It shouldn't be.
Bledsoe was mentioned as an "elite" player below. Is he a top 10 PG? Top 10 PGs go...
4. Tony Parker
7. John Wall
9. Kyle Lowrie
Honorable mention: Conley, Bledsoe
@Keith00 @Lambaaaaaa @Jabb0310 Is Bledsoe even a top 10 point guard? How do you define elite?
@Daft_Drunk Will you marry me?
1 week, 5 days ago on Russell Westbrook engaged to long-time girlfriend
@Lost Ones I'd start with $7 million if I was the Thunder and go up to $10 million. Not more though.
1 week, 5 days ago on Wednesday Bolts – 9.3.14
@Old Man Game I agree that he's underrated though... and overrated in his own mind.
@ThabeetsGoldSpot @L0rv @Triple5 There are hardly any small forwards, tons of point guards. Totally different markets.
@OBoy (LaFamilia) I agree. Unless he really breaks out then he's not getting offered much more than $10 million per. Point guard is the deepest position in the league.
@Lost Ones Yep. Doesn't look good at all.
Reggie is not a small forward. There are a dearth of small forwards. Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward are small forwards. Reggie's next paycheck should not consider what those two did.
Reggie's situation is more comparable to PGs like Kyle Lowry and Eric Bledsoe. One got $12 million per and the other was offered the same. Reggie should obviously make less than those two so his range should probably be $7-10 million per.
So, why are people bringing up Parsons and Hayward? Dumb.
@d21 And he's a local kid. I was a teacher at Santa Fe when him and Obi played...
@JustPlainNASTY @King of Carrot Flowers the third Uh, I don't care how long he was here, but Nate Robinson is a first balloter. He is the grandfather of the bench mob.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to Philadelphia
I PROPOSE THAT EVERYONE TYPE IN ALL CAPS FOR THE REST OF THE DAY.
@Triple5 DO THAT THINKIN' IN YO BRAIN!
@Lambaaaaaa Makes sense. They could be revolutionaries who cast aside the trend towards spacing and go all in on the clogging the offensive lane philosophy.
I remember the first big Thunder trade - the Jeff Green trade - that even though I knew cognitively that it was a good move, I was emotionally distraught. If you watch and talk about the Thunder as much as I do these guys just become part of your life (albeit not in any major way). I'll miss seeing Hash over there on the bench... waiting to make a long distance call to Caron. GOODBYE, MY BENCHMOB FRIEND.
I think someone will pick Thabeet up. He's a good third center because of his attitude and he can contribute well in a limited role.
@El Prez You should blame someone for that. There's a wide chasm between wanting to hit someone, particularly a woman, and doing it.
I MISS YOU, HASH! I MISS YOU SO MUCH ALREADY!
@King of Carrot Flowers the third Boomer!
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Phantom slams
@Greeed I think he's here through the season if they can't agree. We can always match in free agency.

@Marko (Lacoste baby) Gawd. He makes my Ice Bucket Challenge feel dirty.
@Tvaddic Just churnin' butta y'all!
@Hoodzy @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Labambo ALS was totally off my radar. When I was challenged I did a ton of research, donated $25, and encouraged others to do so. I don't understand people who criticize the challenge (not saying you are). It's working tremendously.

He has the maturity of a middle schooler. Funny... For 10 minutes. Gets old quick.

@Sustainable Parameters @Grolgar I loved it and I'll likely go back to teaching high school again at some point...
1 month, 1 week ago on Tuesday Bolts – 8.5.14
@Sustainable Parameters BTW, I hate when politician's talk about "fixing" education. I taught for 6 years in OKC. My classroom wasn't broke. The number one obstacle I had to deal with is stupid legislative mandates that prevented me from crafting authentic lessons. The best thing politicians could do is hand the profession back over to teachers. I can't even explain to you how uninformed most legislators are about basic educational issues. It's dumbfounding they influence what teachers do. Sorry.... rant over.
@Sustainable Parameters Dorman seems like an alright dude. Obviously anyone would be an improvement over Fallin. Good luck to him...
@Tvaddic "Harrison Barnes will be the best player on the Warriors within two years." Lol.
@daft_drunk @Grolgar Obviously there's being unassigned land (and why) and the landruns are pretty fascinating. "Far and Away" with Tom Cruise has a good landrun scene at the end even though it's of the 1893 Chereokee Strip in northern Oklahoma, not the 1889 unassigned land run with present-day OKC.
Oklahoma was also almost split into white (Oklahoma) and Native American states (Cherokee), but obviously white people pushed against it.
My favorite historical actor from OKC is Roscoe Dunjee. He was the editor of the Oklahoma City Black Dispatch - one of the largest black newspapers in the country. There was hope that Oklahoma might provide a "promised land" for blacks fleeing the south and a lot of black towns were established in Oklahoma. However, upon statehood segregation was the first law on the books. Dunjee fought hard against it. Really brave stuff. I had an assignment at OU to chronicle WWII via a new sources and I chose the Black Dispatch. Man, I read those old papers on microfiche machines for hours. Incredibly interesting to read about WWII through the perspective of the black paper. That's the kind of stuff that college is all about. Never would have done that otherwise.
1 month, 1 week ago on Paul George’s injury and player freedom
@SexyWatt Daily Thunder Been kayaking down there before and I've run down there quite a few times. Want to try that zip line.
@daft_drunk I was in middle school in Tulsa. Remember hearing about it and watching coverage at school. Crazy.
What history do you want to learn about?
@Stevitch McAdams @[weed wolf faction] Certainly some successful black people in OKC. Andrew Black is arguably the most well known chef in the city. John Pettis is maybe the fastest rising young politician in OKC and current councilman. Lots of artists like Jabee, etc, etc. Urban Roots is black-owned and one of the hippest restaurants in the core. C'mon, y'all. I don't even live in Oklahoma and I can name plenty of up-and-coming black contributors to the future of OKC.
@[weed wolf faction] @AlexR44 Under Armour own the Wizards. Damn.
@OBoy (LaFamilia) @KetelOne He so dumb. Obvi.
@ThunderChick2010 @Teh Ghost of Lamb I saw it in Vegas, but need to see the movie. Loved the show.
Pretty cool little documentary on OKC for anyone that doesn't know much about the city's recent growth: http://www.thecoolist.com/city-rising-okc/
@Julius F Wrek @[weed wolf faction] @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] $8 million per year for a dude that fell out of the Bucks rotation. Yikes: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/bucks/oj-mayo-has-fallen-out-of-bucks-rotation-b99225386z1-250420951.html

@Sustainable Parameters @Half International Man of Mystery Half Amazing With the next CBA supposedly raising the cap/tax considerably... Reggie at $9 million could end up being a very good contract. I could live with $10 milllion per. He certainly shouldn't be making more than Kyle Lowry (4/48) so you'd think $10 per would get a deal done. My guess is that the Thunder would love to get him at $8 million.
Is there any way we get him locked up before the October deadline? I know there's not a lot of incentive for him (except injury) to do it earlier... I think he'll be more expensive after the season.
@Half International Man of Mystery Half Amazing 2 years of Tyreke Evans at over $10 million. I'd just re-sign Reggie, who I think is still improving.
@Julius F Wrek @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] Career 38% shooter who could be available. Bad last year, but he was on the Bucks. Can't really count it.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] We'd give them picks. That's what the Suns would want and they'd take Perk.
@Duckface.gif I think the fact that it's his last year makes it more likely they trade him.
Going through the league trying to envision a trade at the deadline involving Perk and there's not much, but what about Perk, a future 1st, and 2nd rounder for Gerald Green if no one pans out at shooting guard. Would we have to include more?
This is of course assuming it doesn't look like the Suns will make the playoffs or re-sign Green.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] I'm not sure a future 1st gets it done though.
Here are our assets that I think we'd have to consider some combination of in addition to Perk's expiring that are realistic and have value (for example, I don't think Roberson has any trade value as of now): Lamb, PJ3, Abrines, Pleiss, likely late 1st future round pick (low value).
We'd have to give up something of value for the Pacers to consider it.
