That moment that you realize that the Mavs got more for Brendan Wright than the Thunder did for James Harden. :(

KD > Dirk

Russ > Rondo

Ibaka > Ellis

Reggie < Parsons

Adams < Chandler

Our bench > Mavs bench. 

Ehhh, not worried.

I figured the Los Angeles Lakers had zero interest in the best player in the league's free agency status. This is absolutely shocking.

I think he was the best part of it, but I still didn't think the movie was very good. He's got talent, he just needs someone else to start picking his roles. Maybe The Butler will be the beginning of a late career turnaround for him.

It was pretty decent. Boyz N The Hood was excellent, as was Jerry Maguire. The Butler was solid. Outside of those, he's got a lot of cheesy and over dramatic movies. I like the guy and he's a pretty good actor, but he's terrible at picking roles.

I think our recent dominance as Reggie has simultaneously faded to the background in the wake of Russ's Rampage has made some of us forget that Reggie is a really, really good player. We will need him for our championship run. There will be games in the near future that will remind us of just how essential having Reggie as our fourth best player really is. I'm not happy with the situation either, but he's still incredibly important to our success.

I would be cool with a Reggie/Morrow/Green/Nick/Perk bench.

I agree with that totally. I keep saying to my friends that I don't think it's about the money or not wanting to be here-- it's all about a starting position.

Stagger Russ or Reggie/Roberson/Morrow/Nick/Perk

We could do this and keep Reggie happy, but I don't think we ever will.

I don't want to trade Reggie and downgrade our talent yet again. If we could get equal talent back, sure. But that's not likely. I'd rather keep him for our best chance at a championship run and hope to re-sign him in the offseason or at the least do a decent sign and trade to get something in return.

Well, the thought for real basketball is that we can't really play both Lamb and PJIII. We have a 10 man rotation, but one of them will always be squeezed out. So I'd prefer to trade them both for an upgrade that will play those minutes.

When I have a bunch of stud WR3's or RB2's on my fantasy football team, I am obsessed with the idea of packaging two of them for an upgrade. I always seek out bottom feeders who have multiple holes in their team and give them two good players for one slightly better player. And it always helps me win more. 

This is exactly how I feel about Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones.

Haha. I don't blame him. Those guys are expensive. Plus, it's really kinda fun to try to break into your own car with a wire hanger, a slim jim or, apparently, a shoelace. 

I'm really curious to hear how this story ends. Because if Royce can break into a car with a shoelace, that's some Chris Angel trickery. Without the douchebaggery.

If KD gets back to his regular self (probable) and if Russ keeps up his current level of play (50/50) and if LeBron's decline is for real (probable)...


...is it possible that we might have the two best players in the world on our team?


(I know Anthony Davis may have something to say about this.)

Still just rumor. I'm just trying to gauge how our potential bench will be when this trade doesn't happen.

Speaking of Alex Abrines, I just read this from an NBA.com story a few days ago. I'm sure it was discussed here, but in case anyone else missed it...

One quick lookahead on a possible 2015-16 rookie: Alex Abrines is getting positive reviews for his play in Spain as a possible lead up to joining the Thunder after being picked 32nd in 2013. If the swingman was in the 2015 draft? "The first 15 picks," a scout said. "I do not have any doubt about that."

I think Reggie and Morrow plus Perk and Nick put backs would outscore opposing benches because of the defense down low and Roberson taking away the opposing bench's best wing.

Chandler is a good two-way, all around player. And we could use all the two-way players we could get.

I played NBA2K15 online for the first time last night. Apparently, they haven't updated the online rosters yet to where KD is back. 

It was so freaking frustrating having to play with Lance Thomas. I would immediately take him out of the lineup, but they kept auto subbing him back in, and he would waste no time in turning the ball over on the next possession before I could sub him back out. At one point, the computer auto subbed in a lineup of Jackson, Lamb, Thomas, Collison and Perk. 

I felt like Scott Brooks was controlling the NBA2K servers and maniacally cackling as he sabotaged any chance I had to win.

Actually, he looks really, really good here. Nice touch on his jumper, the usual hustle plays and energy, running the floor, solid defense. Really starting to wonder if he gets some rotation minutes at the backup PF this season at some point.

Morrow's value goes down if he's not playing with KD and Russ. Roberson and Lamb together makes sense.

Those lineups make a lot of sense to me.

Looking at the schedule laid out like that makes our mission seem daunting.

But what gives me comfort is that it all just comes down to needing to lose 5 less games than Phoenix, Sacramento, New Orleans and Denver the rest of the way. And I think we'll do that.

Awesome. We have such a logjam of young prospects though. No idea where he would fit in, unless like you mentioned, we dealt Reggie. His value as a trade piece could keep rising though.

I just think being a starter means everything to him. Even more than money. I know it's not the Thunder way, but I'd do it if it meant we got to keep him.
