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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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[4] and of Chinese descent on her mother's side (though her mother was born and raised in Vietnam).[5] Her mother, Kim Schmid, fled to Oklahoma after the Vietnam War ended in 1975. After college, she married Winston Munn, Munn's biological father.[6] 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,[3][7] 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.[8] 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"

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.

I've 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.

If I were Ligotti I’d be pleased that someone created a very Ligottian character and gave my ideas such an enormous audience."

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.

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.

I think we are done with the offseason for the most part. Maybe a minor end of the roster move (Thabeet or not Thabeet, that is the question.)

BUT... I wouldn't be shocked if we made a deal at the deadline. Depending on how our starting 2 guard spot shakes out over the season and depending on if it looks like Adams took a leap and can be trusted to handle bigs in the playoffs, then we may move Perk's expiring.

I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan since the days of Tony Dorsett, Danny White, The Manster and Too Tall Jones. And I've said for a few years that the false, unfair narrative that Westbrook has received from the media and general public reminded me of Tony Romo. Two fantastic players whom are underrated, under appreciated and unfairly criticized. Westbrook finally seems to have the respect he deserves after last year. I'm still holding out hope the same will happen with Romo.

If you've ever blamed Romo for the Cowboys' struggles, please watch this two minute video. It's all there.

I'm not saying I agree with the narrative at all. I think it's crap. We've been smart and I feel like the media has done a terrible job at acknowledging that overall. 

But I do hope that this long-held thought of OKC eventually going into the tax does in fact come to fruition.

One thing I will say.... hopefully this whole notion of "OKC will eventually be willing to go into the tax" will kick in soon. Maybe the offseason next year? That would go a long way, I'm sure, to shutting everyone up who says "KD is gonna leave cause OKC is cheap." That seems to be the #1 go-to reason why people would think he would leave. It would be great to completely close down that narrative.

I just think there will be an outpouring of love. Some of it will probably come off like the needy/insecure girlfriend, but a lot of it will be a genuine "we love you KD" type of thing. I mean, this is the same city that dressed buildings in beards and giant red glasses and that made a return trip from a Finals loss into a celebration parade. It's gonna happen.

I fully expect the people of Oklahoma City to do things like purchase billboards, start social media movements and send flowers, cards and chocolates to KD in the summer of 2016 to keep him here. I'm serious. The passion that OKC has for this team and the love we have for KD will come out in a million ways. 

And knowing the kind of person is, it will touch him and make it that much harder to leave. Not even factoring in how good our team will be, the loyalty he already has and how hard it will be to leave Russ/Serge and his teammates.
