I've actually really like Fisher on the team this year so far. As a long time Fisher hater I'm confused and... pleased?
@Jooseppi @Legendary_Dork Suddenly I want Adams' nickname to be "The Cookie Monster"

@ Luke How did you find those advanced rebounding stats you posted the other day? I was looking for them and couldn't find them.
@supreme35 @Zach99 You say that like he hasn't been chasing assists all night.
@d21 What the hell is the Funaki thing a reference to?
@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?
@KellOne At least
I'm getting a little tired of Durant chasing assists.
@ 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.
1 year, 2 months ago on Thursday Bolts – 11.7.13
@sammasaaron @L0rv @osanowhoa Wow. That's actually kind of shocking.
@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.

Lamb needs to see a sports psychologist. Not even kidding.
I seriously can't handle how well Adams is playing right now.
My irrational exuberance for Adams is so high right now that it's wrapped back around into a confusing and amorphous dread.
"Eclipsing" is the best way I've heard to describe a hard pick recently.

@OBoy @IsaiahSmith1 Good lord do I not want Michael Beasley on this team. I'd rather we re-sign Perkins.
1 year, 3 months ago on Sixers vs. Thunder: Three things to care about
@OkcBaby Yes, it's important we put a damper on the runaway optimism around here.
@Jax Raging Bile Duct @IsaiahSmith1 Why I don't know?
@Barry Amenema I'm scared of commitment.
@seth_22 @IsaiahSmith1 What are you? Some kind of math scientist?
@IsaiahSmith1 @seth_22 If he'd made 8 of them we'd have solved world hunger.
@Turfright @mattchant Adams is the best Center on the team, but that says more about the team than Adams. #PreseasonConclusions
@Bryson He's been working on his shot with Fisher.
@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.
@Tydude This make me want to call him Captain New Zealand so bad.

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.

@Brob785 Until we win a championship this will probably remain my personal #1 game.
@RRRWHATEVER I'm borderline pusching for Toronto to make the playoffs so the pick will roll over.

@OBoy Jones III The smile when he's asked that question is what sells me. If the idea of being here long term puts a smile like that on his face, well that's not nothing.
