2 weeks, 4 days ago on Six questions about Russell Westbrook’s return
I remember how utterly lost the guys looked in Game 5 when Heat started raining 3's and running away….one of the saddest things we've seen in OKC's short history with NBA…I just want so bad to start exorcising those memories with a few wins...

like I said on that old thread, Brooks is coaching with some real sass right now (for him) and I hope he is just giving the normal Thunder line about rotations.
i might stress eat a whole pizza so keep me away from @f5alcon 's pizza.
tony brothers tho.

Wade's yapping, which leads me to think (or hope) he won't have much to do in this game. so he yaps, trying to ahem "keep his place in history" going
Brooks' intransigence isn't encouraging but whatever, still think it's doable. Maybe Brooks is gonna play mind games and actually adjust. he's been absolutely coaching with some flexibility and response past few weeks, which is encouraging. also KD helps.
way nervous. totally think we can win this one. but way nervous.
Really, would it be worse to just let some kid walking around LoDo come in and coach the 4th? Would we notice anything different?

Love these thoughts. I also love that the bottom part of the post works a possible way through the paradoxical sayings of Jesus that doesn't float as either faux-Tao, nor "take it or leave it" appeals to category error, w/r/t God's transcendence, as the former half of the article works through.

"The reason the Thunder have gone from 20 wins to 23 wins to 50 to eventually 60 last season hasn’t been because of offseason moves or by signing players. It’s been because their young players have gotten better."
This is the key idea for me. The only way to "stranglehold"the West would've been to break cap Russia-style and lock up some major 3rd player, or do that for Harden even. We know that's not in the cards, so if it's gonna be rings, gonna be close. I don't know why we wouldn't be the favorite still. Last year the preseason Lakers bullishness was hilarious. I'd be bullish on MEM, SAS, LAC, GSW but not more so than an essentially unchanged OKC.

We have yet to discuss the possibility of Playoff Derek Fisher playing center for us.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Should the Thunder amnesty Kendrick Perkins?
@Royce Young @Amnesty Perkins @walrusmuse His (Gasol's) jumpshot made me depressed every time. it was so solid. Not much to do, besides front or get aggressive, which worked out well for NIck...(sads)
I'm partial to both Russians and the T Wolves, so Pekovic is always an intriguing figure (and scary), but as @Royce Young correctly points out, there simply aren't a lot of trade scenarios that work. So I love @Jax Raging Bile Duct 's thoughts below: developing Ibaka, using Perk in role positions, and even maybe having some luck in the draft for a rotation fella (or with PJ3?) are what's realistic. Amnesty isn't impossible, but I think the article lays it out well that it isn't the only option we have and it's probably not the best option.
