I've actually really like Fisher on the team this year so far. As a long time Fisher hater I'm confused and... pleased?

@Thunder247 Adams doesn't get tired. He's a cyborg sent back from the future to play center for the Thunder. Why do you think he took that elbow so well?

@ Luke The question isn't really whether Lamb + Adams is better than Harden, because that's not a question, they aren't. The question is whether the two of them plus the benefit of financial flexibility in acquiring future assets can be close to the same value for the the Thunder that Harden would have been, and I think that is a legitimate question.

@Jooseppi @Dominator This is why Ibaka is always my answer for these "who would win in a fight/zombi holocaust/the hunger games" questions. Ibaka grew up during a civil war with his dad in prison and he's seriously considered being soldier in that same country.

@Jooseppi @Dominator Do you remember when they asked all the Thunder players what they would do if they weren't playing basketball and Ibaka said he'd be a solider?

@L0rv @sammasaaron @osanowhoa I'm going to cautiously attribute this to small sample size right now, because that would put him among the most elite rebounders in the game.

@L0rv @sammasaaron @osanowhoa That's why I used the % stat. I was trying to account for minutes played. The stat I really want is rebound chances per 36 minutes.

I mentioned this in reply to Ballsohard earlier, but I think it deserves its own post. Check out the contested rebounding% http://stats.nba.com/playerTrackingRebounding.html?pageNo=1&rowsPerPage=100&sortField=REB_UNCONTESTED_PCT&sortOrder=DES&filters=REB_TOT*GE*10

@BallSoHard Sort it by contested rebound% and he has the highest rate among players with more than 10 rebounds.

@The Great Wall Of Adams Scott Brook will arrange for Adams to be traded to the Liaoning Flying Leopards before the season starts unfortunately, so we'll probably never get to see.

@mattchant @osanowhoa Lamb looks good other than the misses. Seems unlikely to me that he'll keep missing at the same rate.

So I guess I'm mostly encouraged by this. Lamb and Adams look like they can become contributors this season, Jackson looks like he's going to be really good. That would give us a rotation of 8 NBA players and Perkins.

@dollarbillrussell @osanowhoa Yup. How bad you think we have to do for him to get replaced? (figure I'll get started early on this since there's no way I won't be saying this every other game throughout the season.)

You know if we don't keep Thabo or Perkins we're really going to start looking like San Antonio. 3 stars, a couple vets, and a bunch of young kids.

If Lamb really does have strong shooting fundamentals (which everybody in the organization insists he does) then he'll work through this. Harden has similar issues. I'm just really really really looking forward to the day when he has worked through this.

Steven Adams looks raw as hell, like he'll foul out in every game, and like he's the best center on the team. Mixed feelings.

Lamb is just thinking too much when he's taking shots. You can see it.

I love the way Adams played. I want him to get 15-20 minutes a game until he's fouled out every game.

I don't care if it's a song about Oklahoma or by an Oklahoman, I just want us to use something upbeat and catchy, something that gets you yelling. Basically I want us to use a Ramones song.
