It might not be sustainable. He might be a bum in the long run. Who cares? He's a good kid who's getting his chance and making something of it. I like where the Thunder is, and I might actually flip on a Charlotte game now and then just to check on the Thunder alum.
I mean, c'mon. This was fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPgnq9Sg074

@TempBoy Brandon Exactly. I'd like to see a rule like hockey's whereby a "flopper" is given a foul. It wouldn't be used terribly often, but when the action is obvious, as it often is with Wade, Paul, Pierce and company, they get whistled.

"SEE YA NEXT YEAR: The six Eastern Conference teams that won’t come to OKC: Atlanta, Indiana, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington."
Maybe the best news of the schedule. Not exactly a slate of teams Loud City will lament missing this season.
@Darin Already organizing to fly down to "visit the family" for the Chicago-Memphis back-to-back. Rock Chalk.
@JimboSlice@Keith00 One particular bonus having Battier would bring is that other teams wouldn't. That alone makes Durant more dangerous.

@sammasaaron@erics The horse isn't dead if it's still kicking.
Just a little frustrating to have the Thunder's fan loyalty questioned, yet again, by bitter Seattle folk. I do realize that Presti came with the Thunder. So did Durant. I'm saying Seattle fans are rightfully jealous of what they lost.
It's a bummer for them, I get it, but attendance was a problem, if not only because there weren't many sellouts, then also because Key Arena only had space for around 16,000 fans.
And when the renovation / new stadium talk came to Sonic Land, it wasn't publicly embraced as the new digs for the Seahawks and Mariners had very recently been.
So no, it's not any one fan's fault, but c'mon. This Oklahoma City fan base has been called thieves and hicks too much to have the Seattle Post-Intelligencer — which is a good publication, I know — revisit the issue while we're just trying to enjoy some farkin' basketball.

So a Seattle publication openly questions Oklahoma City's loyalty because one female — probably more girlfriend-of-a-fan than an actual fan — has the mind of a teenager?
How about averaging a sellout, financing a practice facility and substantial upgrades to an arena that was already better than Key Arena for loyalty? I mean, yea, I bet the whole ordeal stings anew with each new piece fawning over how awesome a small market Oklahoma City and how brilliantly managed a franchise the Thunder is, but c'mon. The truth hurts, Seattle, but don't blame the grave you dug on the new girlfriend.

Billy Hunter's letter — or G. William Hunter's letter — probably should have been opened, "Bad news, guys."
I mean, really? "Enhance off-court income?" Good luck with that. All of us here with a collegiate degree are now more qualified than the lion's share of the NBA Players Union-turned-trade-association's membership. Have to wonder if they're going to try the charity for millionaires basketball games again. Donate to the cause of keeping their G6's fueled up.

@Keith00@[censored] Keith's dead on if what we're hearing out there is true. I bet it would have been close, if it didn't pass. Stern should have made his deadline Nov. 16 or 17 — right after the first missed paychecks.

I don't work for them or anything, but now would be a good time to buy Tree and Leaf stuff. I mean, support the colors and support the city whilst keeping your hard-earned coin from the numbskulls responsible.
That being said, will the boys at Tree and Leaf have a smartass lockout shirt, perhaps? like "L-OKC-ED OUT" or something? eh? eh?

3 years ago on Players reject the league's offer, start process to disband union
I think you misunderstand. Decertifying takes a maximum of 45 days while the feds consider the application — which itself requires the signatures of around 130 apparently already willing players — and then a simple majority vote of the workforce, in this case the players.
Once decertification is complete, which I tend to think is a tall order given it's a detriment most rank-and-file players, the union-turned-trade-organization (which is really silly) likely files an antitrust lawsuit against the league.
I'm pretty sure once that happens — the cataclysm everyone most fears — the players can't negotiate.
It's that part — the non-negotiable litigation period after the antitrust lawsuit — that could last years, what with the gridlock in the courts. That means possibly years worth of no NBA basketball. The worst thing is that the players would almost certainly fail if they try to do this the hard way.
They view the deal they've been extended as unfair since they would be making the majority of concessions, but if the NBA's deal reflects 80 percent of a federal mediator's recommendations, which it's reported it does, then the players have little ground to stand on when it comes to brass tax.
I was with the players at first, having bought into them making so many perceived concessions at the bargaining table, but a little research shows this is eye-for-an-eye negotiating by the owners, who were fleeced in the last deal.
Now that someone whose sole expertise is determining whether a deal like this is fair has essentially given the 49-51 band deal his blessing, I tend to think the players are the less reasonable side.
