2 days, 14 hours ago on State of the City: OKC waits for its new coach
"That isn’t to say that he only focuses on scoring from the post. His diagrams are full of all types of plays and the emphasis on getting the ball into the post seems more like "step 1" rather than the end goal."
adams, kanter, and mitch can all benefit from this
"He also states that his teams needed a minimum of 20 FGAs per game from the post. He talks about how the team should constantly look for opportunities to get the ball to the Center, where the defense is most forced to react. Messina is known for his development of post players and it seems clear from that article that he values low post players quite a bit."
did like this though
"His teams found success behind their defensive, although it should be noted that the difference between NBA and European basketball is most different on the defensive end. The use of zones and other rule differences make that aspect of the game a bit difficult to gauge. Messina’s teams also play a relatively slow pace by most European standards, preferring an efficient half court offense that plays through the post"
@Hawaii *Tvaddic* nah dawg
welp, if he comes here. kd and russ GONE. *from that messina article*
" Messina seems to be no exception. He has a strong personality and, at least in Europe, was a tough coach to play for. He famously cut several of Real Madrid’s star players upon arrival, electing to go with players that he felt were more malleable."
*sarcasm of course*
@Headband @ThunderChick2010 who would believe this crap anyways? brooks doesnt have balls. he would never say these kinds things..so fake lol
2 days, 15 hours ago on State of the City: OKC waits for its new coach
@L0rv @Legendary_Dork @ThunderChick2010 mind pops up article fake
@Pancakes and Blouses @Legendary_Dork not sure DT can take 6 months of this lol

@L0rv @ThunderChick2010 ahhhh they took it down
@ThunderChick2010 i was trying to find it too. i wanted to read this crap lol
@this _just in right now
@propsizzle NOT IT!
most of DT right now
so a fake article got made? and it got tweeted out as real? wtf
@L0rv @Legendary_Dork im trying to piece this all together, lol. nothing like coming back to DT and seeing ANARCHY
wait..what the fuck did i miss D: ?????
@anonymous12345 @Legendary_Dork and we were written off before the all star break so. and REALLY written off after kd got re-injured.
2 days, 20 hours ago on Down To Dunk: Changes
@anonymous12345 @Legendary_Dork and yet AD came back...more than we can say for us. we had ibaka, collision and kd still out. if we got KD back before the playoffs and he went on a tear then sure id understand. they got lucky, and they are getting a dose of reality.
i predicted a sweep, its happening.
@anonymous12345 @Legendary_Dork im sorry , but with the shit season we had *injuries and what not* ill have NO and i mean NOOOOOOO remorse for any team going forward.. i dont have time to worry about another teams failure. they FOUGHT for that 8th seed huh, well heres their reward :D
this is a fluke season for a lot of teams and they better enjoy it.
@anonymous12345 @Legendary_Dork they got to cocky, their fan base too. and i just read this in that article below. lol
"For two and a half months, the Pelicans fought to get to this moment. Beaten-up and ravaged by injuries, left for dead more times than anyone could count, "
yeah im done.
@anonymous12345 i dont, they are getting exactly what they deserved .
@Old Man Game @N0tres my BOLD prediction will be, grizz can and will beat the gs warriors in round 2 :D .
@TaoMaas @Legendary_Dork he didnt win shit btw, kd and russ did. presti had to continually BROOKS PROOF the team just so he wouldnt fall in love with veterans. perk, fisher, caron, ect.. brooks was stubborn and more of a cheerleader than anything
3 days, 19 hours ago on Sam Presti: Change is sometimes necessary
@TaoMaas @Legendary_Dork so did memphis, and denver. there were coaches that got their team to have the best record IN THEIR FRANCHISE and still got canned.
@Tronchaser yeah a ton of folks seem to be saying it was a BAD move, but lets face it, scotts had 7 years to do shit. honestly , hes had more chances than ANY coach in the league
@Crow i agree. i just know some people on here have the attention of a goldfish.
i also forgot to point out that we need a defensive minded coach first. brooks always PREACHED defense, but we havent had good defense since ron adams left.
4 days, 5 hours ago on Five scattered thoughts on Scott Brooks’ departure
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW ohhhhh that makes sense. yeah he can kick rocks and eat them too
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW is midpost lost ones?
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW huh? what did lost ones say? ive been sleeping
@midpostgame or i can post whatever the fuck i want :D
yeah ill go with that. if you dont like it , dont read it.
also just woke up, gonna be spelling errors. *fact, not face lol
Here is my take, i was with royce in the face that i thought brooks deserved one more year. buuuuuuuuuut then i got to thinking....... hes had 7 yes 7 freaking years. i had to really really think about it.
like if this happen right after the finals and onward i would of thrown a SEE YAAAA BROOKS PARTY, the only reason that everyone is saying he deserved ONE MORE YEAR is cause of all the injuries that were sustained THIS year, but this goes waaaaaaaaay deeper than just this year.
And that is where we find our MAJOR problem, no one thinks about this.......all everyone says is OH WITH A HEALTHY ROSTER , with a healthy roster , ROSTER!!!!!! well yeah, but think about this......presti has had to BROOKS PROOF the team for YEARS. This healthy ROSTER could of been coached by a towel boy .
Brooks has prove time and time again that hes was a stubborn bastard that Almost NEVER made changes unless it was cause of injury. And that weird ass, imma take a time out, but make NO CHANGES, but then as soon as the game resumes, i see like 2-3 thunder players walk to the check in station was like WTF O.o.
so the TL;DR version is this: i think presti did the right thing, brooks is and was stubborn and he shouldnt of had to "Brooks proof the team for years"
i just highly doubt presti DIDNT tell kd and the team what was going on.
he gonna walk into the exit interview like
4 days, 11 hours ago on Thunder fire Scott Brooks
