@Perky Jerky Keep in mind , that payroll expense was lower last season , upon which this estimate was based. And it will go up in the next few seasons while revenues could remain mostly stable. To maintain revenues they must make deep playoff runs and the only real increase might come from local TV contract revenue.
I suspect owners are building a war chest to fund the next few seasons , as they will have to be taxpayers and also revenue sharers.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Forbes ranks Thunder 11th most valuable at $590M
Purchase price was $350 million, but they spent at least another $50 million to get out of Seattle. They paid off the 1995 construction bonds for the City of Seattle, which was in the $45 mil range, and they had to buy out the lease. Along with misc expense in attempting to get an arena built in Seatte that was well over a million in architect fee's alone. And they ran deep losses for the two seasons the team played in Seattle.
And I would say that if they did not draft Kevin Durant, the value of the franchise today would be entirely different. They been rewarded with increase in franchise value, but that did not come without substantial risk.
@El Prez NBA head coaches are people managers. That's 90% of the job. This bench coaching stuff is highly over rated and mostly just fodder for sports talk shows or message board forums.

@Brookies4Life Spurs have run that system for years, Thunder just can't shift gears and now play a system, that they don't use every game.
As if now without Russ, Thunder can efficiently change the way they play basketball ? Wow, that would be something.

@El Prez @Legendary_Dork Thabo takes defensive responsibility from KD, cause Thabo is a versatile defender who can guard 1 though 3 . Part of KD's offensive production, is because Thabo keeps him from having to burn energy and focus on defense.

@Bry Bry @d21 They've always switched, almost everything. Makes his thoughts on the offense questionable if he's not seen enough Thunder ball to know that.
@senseandsenescence I suspected they might be showcasing him for a trade.

@ThunderWins If you have preseason to prepare for one team, and Heat spend all their energy on opening night with Bulls, then ya gotta chance
@[corporate shill] @Legendary_Dork Yes, it is by design. Many don't know what they are watching.
Very easy prediction, the Thunder offense will look much better vrs the TWolves. I read nothing in Royce's report, that gave Utah any credit for having a credible defensive plan vrs the Thunder, nor how their physical lay took the Thunder out of what they wanted to do.
Utah has had since a week ago Sunday , to study the Thunder. That game was just a prelim to the real game.
And TWolves will also have a plan for the Thunder, but Adelman's plan will involve far more offense than defense.
I predict a high scoring contest tomorrow night.
But you don't know what Jeremy Lamb would be today. With a full year on a bad Rocket team, he could've developed into a candidate for ROY.
So to say that Morey would make the same deal now, is just poppycock and balderdash, cause no one knows.

@MisterJohnsonOKC @tydude Traber said for two years that Presti made a mistake drafting Russell, I guess you gonna defend that also ........................... you spend too much time on these forums and sucking off Traber.
1 year, 2 months ago on The Thunder’s ‘big’ problem
@MisterJohnsonOKC @tydude Oh good grief ......... yes, he plays PG, he's not a traditional PG, but he's as much a PG as Derrick Rose, now go suck on Trabers cock some more.
@tydude This from the guy who said Russell was not a PG , for TWO FRICKEN YEARS , buy into what he sells, at your own risk. He's an expert at conducting a sports radio talk show, nothing else.
@TaoMaas @okcjim Cept Miami does not really go small, Lebron is a big. Their " small " lineup has three bigs. That's what causes all the teams in the NBA a problem. Its why they are a great team.
@persiansooner How soon they forget about the 50 Plus million our owners spent to get out of the lease in Seattle , that was on top of already over paying for the Sonics. They paid 350 mil, while Forbes said the were worth 260 .
Our owners are wealthy men, who are making a lot of money from successful business'es, they did not buy this team to make a profit.
