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.

Now take our Telfair and slot reggie in there. Not horrible.

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.

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.

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.

Westbrook/Ibaka >> Wall/Beal.

@[weed wolf faction] @Joo_seppi @Labambo
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'd put the KD sweepstakes odds at about--
New York 10%
Everyone else 1%
@Teh Ghost of Lamb
White dude, played for the Boston Red Sox, hit a lot of 3's back in his day, had an incredible head of hair, was the only dude to ever beat Michael Jordan in a game of HORSE.
I don't actually think this is going to happen, mind you. Just trying to keep DT's favorite fantasy alive. :)
Hence Love's wink winking as well. What's the matter of a few million to play with your two bball besties and win championships?
Just a little wink wink handshake between Love, Presti, KD and Russ for future plans.
If KD is gonna be making $30 million a year from Under Armour, then he'll be cool with taking less money so that an extension-less Love will sign in OKC next offseason. ;)
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.

Have we fantasized yet that the reason Love won't sign an extension with any team he's traded to is because he, KD and Russ have already discussed his coming to OKC in free agency next summer?
Fun question: if McGary entered the draft last season and both he and Adams are available at #12, who does Presti pick?
