To hit 50 games, we gotta win at a 70% clip from here on out. If Russ and KD return very quickly, that's doable.

Mmmmm, that sounds good. I'll have that.

My dream scenario:Russ/Reggie/KD/Serge/AdamsPJIII/Morrow/Roberson/Nick/PerkReggie just wants to be a starter. That keeps him happy. And quite honestly, that's our best starting lineup anyways. It would be awesome to not start games in a huge hole.And while PJIII bringing the ball up is unconventional, he can do it. I actually think that's a great mix of offense and defense on the bench as well.

I have him in my FanDuel lineup tonight, so I hope so. Super cheap buy, but I'm hoping he pays off.

So "Up The Thunder" added me to their roster of writers. We did a roundtable discussion thingy yesterday. If you're bored and wanna read something until the Pregame Primer posts, check it out. Or not, that's cool too.

And we'll have Reggie.
Odds we beat Brooklyn on Monday night?
I'm legitimately confused as to what our rotation looks like when everyone is healthy.
No Lamb? What spot would he possibly take?
(But by the way, that bench right there is better than the starting team tonight. That's... pretty awesome.)
@King of Carrot Flowers the third
Like who? I honestly don't know. I hope you're right. I would love that.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Phantom sadness
I think he's saying what he's said for the past year: he wants to be a starter. I think that's all he cares about.
Reggie is putting Presti in an impossible situation. We can't trade him because we absolutely need him if we have any hopes of keeping afloat while KD and Russ are out. But if he hits free agency, we either pay through the nose or lose him for absolutely nothing.
Here's hoping we pay through the nose. I think the team as currently constructed (if healthy) wins championships.
If anyone is selling their tickets tomorrow for super cheap (loud city), please hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have tickets but I wanna treat my sister and her husband. Thanks!

I've seen the docs and I'm torn too. After watching the docs, I was convinced they were innocent. But after reading more into it, the docs left out any facts that made them look bad. Damien Echols did a lot of messed up stuff before those murders. Not saying he killed those kids, but there was reason to suspect him. At least more than the docs would lead you to believe.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thunder lose in more ways than one to the Clippers, 93-90
Now take our Telfair and slot reggie in there. Not horrible.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thunder vs. Clippers: Pregame Primer
Our schedule is actually pretty soft for the next month. A starting lineup of Reggie, Roberson, PJIII, Serge and Adams might be able to eke out a 50/50 month.
Every reply Tweet should just be "duh".

That's what I was thinking too. Thanks man, appreciate the feedback.
Thanks for looking into them. He told me that they started at the end of last season and then just relaunched their website last week. The thing is, they've picked up like 5,000 followers on Twitter. So it could be good for my exposure. I'll still do Thunderbloggin, but also contribute to theirs.
If so, I doubt he would reveal himself.
Do any of you know anything about the Up The Thunder blog? They read my stuff on Thunderbloggin and contacted me about joining them. Any thoughts? Thanks for the info, internet basketball friends.
Russ/Reggie/Roberson/Serge/Adams isn't a bad starting lineup.
But that bench. And that spacing.

In all seriousness, Adams may make the Harden trade not so one sided. This is exciting, preseason or not.

I think the better question is... why do you want a Thunder polo?
@Marko (Lacoste baby)
Reggie wouldn't mind. He knows Adams is a Hall of Famer.
So the new thing is gonna be getting ticked at every player ranked about Adams that we disagree with, right?
If he is anything below #1, I am going to be completely disappointed now.

Long time no talk, internet Thunder friends! But I'm back with a cool story. My birthday was Wednesday (I forgot to look and see if TC wished me a happy birthday!), and I went to the fair with my girlfriend Misti. Well, after finding an empty table at which to eat our Indian Taco, I got up to use the bathroom. When I got back, Mitch McGary had accidentally stolen me and Misti's food
table. When I got there, he was super apologetic and
offered to give it back to me. I told him I would forgive him if he took
a pic with me as a payment for our table. He wished me a happy
birthday, told me I had a nice shirt and then he and his friendly entourage of about five asked Misti where to get an Indian Taco. Super cool dude and a super
cool birthday memory. To avoid confusion, I'm the one on the right.
McGary, Collison, Serge can all play center for spells.

Linklater is great. Love the "Before" franchise and, of course, Dazed and Confused. I really think you'll love Boyhood. Even though I didn't grow up in the era this kid did, it still feels incredibly nostalgic and personal because of all the universal moments we all share growing up, regardless of era, race or background. And it's just a fantastic movie, period.And that's awesome! Was this a film festival or something? What was his answer? That would be a tough one to answer off the top of your head, especially publicly.
3 months, 1 week ago on How it’s all going to play out, 2014-15 edition
Hey, I like nerd movies as much as the next guy, but seriously, this movie will move you. It just feels like real life. You'll feel incredibly nostalgic watching it.
Everyone go see "Boyhood."
For fellow OKCers, it's only playing at AMC Quail Springs. Best movie of the year, hands down. And I've seen 71 movies from 2014. Maybe even the best movie of the past several years.
I'm actually more interested in what Alex Abrines does for Spain than what Serge does.

I hope he doesn't get any negative feedback for this. Personally, I'm glad that we don't have to worry about KD getting injured every single game. And it's gonna be nice for him to be able to finally rest.

@The McAdams Bros @TempBoy Brandon @f5alcon @KC_Thunder @L0rv @ThunderChick2010
Well, I'm not married, but my girlfriend of two years thinks it's a pretty funny story. And she's not offended at all that I speak of it with anguish and woe. She says she would have the same feelings if her eye doctor's stepson was Taylor Kitsch and she blew a chance of dating him. Haha.
@ThunderChick2010 @TempBoy Brandon @Lost Ones
Yes, exactly what TC said, Misti! :)
But really, that's a funny, but also very true, way to look at it. :)
Yeah man, I was so ticked at myself when I realized what I had missed out on.
(Not that I'm not completely happy with my current girlfriend if you happen to ever read this, Misti!)
@[weed wolf faction] @f5alcon @KC_Thunder @L0rv Haha. Perfect punchline. But seriously, she woulda been worth it.
Also, I just did the research because I was semi-traumatized over thinking my sweet, nerdy eye doctor could be "the devil." Thankfully, looks like she's talking about her first stepfather in Tokyo. Her mom married my eye doctor when they moved back to OKC when Olivia Munn was in high school.
"Lisa Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She is of German and Irish descent on her father's side and of Chinese descent on her mother's side (though her mother was born and raised in Vietnam). Her mother, Kim Schmid, fled to Oklahoma after the Vietnam War ended in 1975. After college, she married Winston Munn, Munn's biological father. When Munn was age two, her mother married her second husband, a member of the United States Air Force. Although the family relocated many times, Munn was predominantly raised in Tokyo, Japan,
where the military stationed her stepfather. During this time, she
appeared in a number of local theater productions, and later became a
model within the Japanese fashion industry. Her mother and stepfather divorced and she moved back to Oklahoma, where she attended Putnam City North High School for her junior and senior years"
@[weed wolf faction] @TempBoy Brandon @f5alcon @KC_Thunder @L0rv
WHOA. She must have had another stepfather before Dr. Schmid. There's no way. I gotta investigate this.
Oh, and Munn's biological mom (my optometrist's wife) works there too. She's Asian. So apparently, Munn is half Asian.
@f5alcon @KC_Thunder @L0rv
been going my optometrist for 20 years. So he's seen me grow up and
we've ended up bonding over the years. He "likes" me a lot, for lack of a better
word. About 12 or 13 years ago, he was asking me if I was dating anyone
because he thought I would be a fine young man for his step daughter to
date. Seeing as how my eye doctor is super nerdy and he seemed to be
wanting to pawn off his daughter, I was thinking I would take a pass
because she must not be such a great catch. A few years later, I'm at my
annual appointment and I notice an Olivia Munn signed photo in his
office. I asked how he knew her, and he said, "Oh, Olivia is my step
daughter. I'm so proud of her."
That's a true story, kids. The moral
of the story is, never judge a potential girlfriend by her step father's
nerdiness. Also, I punch myself in the face every single time I see
Olivia Munn in a movie now.
I just spent the last 30 minutes reading this and the corresponding comments. To me, it's not really plagiarism. Actually, I'll quote one of the comments (notice, I'm giving him props, so I'm not plagiarizing the dude haha) because he summed up my thoughts and it'll be easier to copy and paste than to write it out myself.
"I’m sorry, and I understand your passion for Ligotti, but what
Pizzolatto did is not plagiarism. If exact lines of LIgotti’s text had
been duplicated, sure—that would be plagiarism. But what Pizzolatto did
was to take the *ideas* and *diction* and *style* of Ligotti and put
them in Cohle’s mouth. Yes, there are similar phrases, but no direct
plagiarism. It would never stand up in court.
You can’t take *multiple lines* of dialogue and shoehorn them into
*individual* lines from Ligotti and call that plagiarism. It isn’t.

Nah, I didn't feel this way about PJIII or Roberson or Aldrich or Mullens or Huestis, etc. McGary just looks really mature and smart on the court.
I really think McGary could make an impact if he played this year, but I just don't see how that happens with the logjam at the 4 and 5 positions. Which bums me out.
EDIT: This is in reference to the rookie survey poll that I just read, with McGary coming in second in the Most Overlooked category.
I don't care what anyone says, I thought that was a great post, Royce. I agree with it 100%. The injuries to Russ and Serge the last two seasons are so frustrating because there will always be a huge "what if?" in my mind.
