@Old Man Game a Thunder fan? Woulda told him to get out of the building.

@Fishfor3 Looked earlier. Everybody with more rebounds than Russ is like 6'9+. Except for Kidd-Gilchrist and 'Mello.

Has anybody ever tried to buy expensive Thunder tickets at the last minute online (stubhub, etc.)?
Can you ever grab good deals from people just desperate to sell before tip-off?

@TempBoy Brandon That's why I think Waiters is most effective as starter or not at all. Prefer Augustin with Singler + Morrow.

@Mitch4OKCMayor My best guess is that he racks up DNPs in the playoffs. And even then, he'll be 3rd C and won't get but a few minutes if Kanter & Adams are healthy.
@Told you it Was Russ' Team Now *Tvaddic* It's his only job. He literally wrote the book on basketball.

Russ = 2nd in POINTS, 5th in ASSISTS, 2nd in STEALS, and leads all guards in REBOUNDING.
Everybody with more boards is, like, 6'9+ (except for Kidd-Gilchrist & Carmello).

Anybody remember the Midfirst Sign Contest? I saw that ^^ on a sign during a Denver game at the 'Peake. There was a pipe too. The Jumbotron-people cut to another sign very quickly.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#PissOffWaiters] By that definition, I feel like Robes is the new Perkins.
SMOKE THE NUGS.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#PissOffWaiters] I just like Waiters better there than the 2nd-team, where I feel his black-hole potential is more threatening. I like Singler/Morrow playing with Augustin. Are we just going to cut Waiters's minutes completely? I don't buy that, for some reason.
I wish Lamb was capable of starting. Robes just reminds me of Thabo so much. I loved Thabo, but I already fell for that trap once.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#PissOffWaiters] Would like to give Waiters a chance to play w/ the first team and see if he'll play within himself if his shots are taking away from KD/Russ's shots. Maybe it can gel. I think he can play a little defense.
We just need a dude to make lay-ups and hit mid-rangers. He's good at that. Roberson is not good at that.
@holymosesmalone Gotta state the positive business platform. I'm sure he has his own reservations.
@d21 (That's wassup) Grant Long sighting!
Remember when our 2nd team used to add to OKC's leads? Excited that that potential is back.
@Lost Ones @Tears of Joy *formerly Tvaddic* And Thabeet too!
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#PissOffWaiters] Suppose I agree to an extent. If Adams starts, I think you need to start Waiters or Lamb or Morrow--at least one other person that can score, anyway.
@Durants Shimmy I want Kanter w/ the 2nd team. Augustin + Singler + Morrow + Kanter--all of those dudes can put it in the hoop. Collison can run around screening.
Think Adams will start his first game back, or will he come from the bench? I want him to--plus, it would be weird if Brooks abandons his defense-first mentality with THIS one.
@Old Man Game @qrex Right. StubHub sends $$ to paypal, and I just let it set there until it's time to start paying on the next season.
Nowadays, I probably only make it to about 1/3 of the games. Even with StubHub's crazy fees, I'd say that I still make my money back, more or less.
At any rate, you've convinced me that it's still easier to sell on StubHub than the NBA Resell. Which is a shame.
Season Ticket Folks: what is your preferred method of ticket-selling?
I've always done StubHub even though I hate it. The NBA-ticket-resell is obviously a better deal for buyers & sellers. I tried it once, though, and I'm still under the impression that it doesn't get nearly the traffic that StubHub gets (had them really reasonably priced, and they didn't sell--my tickets ALWAYS sell on StubHub).
@Old Man Game @D@nny I'd be happy to have Waiters or Lamb or Morrow starting. Robes should be 3rd team more often than not.
4 days, 23 hours ago on Thunder vs Hornets: Pregame Primer
@International Man of Mystery (Dion Shot First) Give up Robes's defense and substitute Adams's defense at the rim. Maximize scoring with the second team by having Kanter with Augustin and shooters.
Down the line, I hope our starting 5 is: Russ, Waiters, KD, Serge, Adams
(maybe Waiters will play more within himself if his shots are taking away from KD/Russ).
Then: Augustin, Morrow, Singler, Collison, Kanter
(Collison screens, and the other 4 guys can put it in the hoop).
My favorite basketball team is the Oklahoma City Thunder.

1 week ago on Five quick thoughts on Deadline Day
OKC didn't have a single good-handles-basketball-IQ guy on the team--haven't since Harden or Maynor (or Fish, if we're splitting hairs).
I'm psyched for Augustin.
@RazvanThunder (#DarthWaiters) Do you think Kanter or Adams will be edged out of the rotation next year?
I miss the Young Hawg.
@Schweebs But I really did like him when everyone else hated him. #FreeRuss
1 week ago on Reggie Jackson awkwardly addresses trade request report
I want Augustin or Hinrich!
1 week, 3 days ago on 3-on-3: The final 29
Theory: Harden & Maynor were really important because they were good ball-handlers that were initially successful because of basketball-IQ. They played at the right speeds. They made the right passes.
Fish got so much PT because he filled that void, but we don't really have anybody like that this year.
More than Lopez, I hope that we at least flip extra pieces for a solid back-up PG this week. And then Reggie should start in Roberson's place.
Can't let Reggie go unless we get another PG. I wish we had old-Maynor still.

@Chandler Bing. GOATBROOK MVP A lot of gentrifying has happened in the last 4-years in inner-city neighborhoods.
I mean, you'll probably find a lacking in OKC if you're comparing it to other NBA cities. But, it's cheap (REALLY cheap) to live here, and you can find about whatever you're looking for, really.
Climate leaves a lot to be desired. But I've also had friends who moved to California and "miss having actual seasons."
Grass is always greener, you guys.
@Old Man Game @d21 @D@nny He shoots with the wrong hand.
@d21 @D@nny It was cool when he flopped in blue. Now it's just anoOOOying.
@d21 @D@nny He used to be the man. Now he flops too much and I hate him.
KD is the man. Russ is the man. We're so lucky.
@Durants Shimmy If Perk comes out again as SUPER PERK!!, well then I'm in and we'll win no matter what --- don't take him out, coach!
3 weeks ago on Durant and Westbrook are FourFive Seconds
It's hard to accept that KD is an 8th-year player. Where does the time go?
@Schweebs He even endorsed the DT shirt! http://dailythunder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Picture-11.png
Loved Serge's 2nd half, yesterday.
As much as I like Serge's new-found 3-point ability, I think it's kind of ruined the mentality that has made him a good NBA player. OKC is best when Serge is mixing it up at the rim as much as possible.
If he hits a 3, it should be after a high-screen and with the ball getting swung around a few times. Lately, I've seen him running to the 3-point line in transition.
I miss Air-Congo!! But at least we got a taste of it at the end of the game.
@sammasaaron @D@nny @Tvaddic I amend the "SOB" part to "awesome dude."
1 month ago on Thursday Bolts – 1.22.15
@Tvaddic When was Westbrook not the coolest SOB in the world? I'm confused.
As far as I'm concerned, he's been a top-10 player since, like, 94.
That picture of Russ skipping and Gortat hiding his face in utter shame...
@Divine Mortal Even when I like Roberson--which he does cool things--I don't like Roberson. Because I feel like I'm falling into the Thabo-supporter trap again.
