Very impressed with PJ3 last night. Houston will be the test for him next week. I actually think he matches up well with Harden...we will see. If this experiment works out, big kudos to Brooks for sticking with it. Very excited for what this could mean for OKC.

The number 1 pick is rarely traded. You think Cleveland didn't try to move down in last year's draft for Bennett?

Traditionally, yes. It's costs a first rounder or a really good starter to move down 2 posts in a good draft.
Mildly suprised we didn't see any plays called to get PJ3 into the post to start either half. If we are starting him at SG, he should post up whoever is guarding him at least a couple of times.
IF, and that's a big IF, Caron Butler starts at SG (which I think is a bad idea), one positive is that he does have a decent post game. San Antonio always put Danny Green on RW and Tony Parker on Thabo. I don't think they could get away with Parker guarding Butler. It's at least interesting...Of our playoff opponents, Butler could guard Danny Green, Wes Matthews, Courtney Lee/Tony Allen and Gerald Green. Jamal Crawford/Reddick, Harden, Klay Thompson and Monta Ellis would give him problems, but it would be fun to see Butler take Harden into the post...Flop City.
In hindsight, he missed twice in the draft. Green over Noah, DJ White over Carl Landry. It happens.

Just got in from a long day at work...can someone catch me up on buyout happenings/rumors? I saw the Butler link to OKC...anything else for the Thunder?

I just got home...Any news on Perk's injury or any news on Westbrook's knee? any swelling or anything>

Totally disagree. Jordan is a horrible mathcup for Perkins. He's too much of an athelete and Perk doesn't box out...plus Jordan can roam free at teh front of the rim on defense.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Heat bloody the Thunder in Westbrook’s return, 103-81
OMG...hadn't even thought of that.
I don't either. My argument is solely to point out what the truth is. Perk stinks. In our heart of hearts, we all know the best chance for OKC to beat Miami, and I would argue anyone else, is for Perk to not be available to Brooks.
We are waiting for word on Perk's injury. Let's try this experiment. There are 2 groups, Thunder supporters and fans of any team of any possible playoff mathcups for the Thunder. What are these 2 groups rooting for on Perk's injury prognosis? I would argue that Thunder fans are rooting for a groin tear and Perk to be out for the year. Everyone else is hoping Perk is OK and he's still available for Broks to misuse when their team runs into OKC.
Is it fair? No. Is it truth? Yes.
"Perk starting is not why we lost this game". I always love that. Give Perk a break b.c he wasn't directly responsible for the Heat killing us. "Hey, Perk didn't shit on the floor, it's not his fault." Anyone defending Perk should have to give one thing Perk did to positively help the Thunder. Plus, one of Miami's adjustmenst was to have LBJ guard Perk and play Free Safety against us. He left Perk and hedged every screen, every drive to help create turnovers. It's harder to find open teammates when 1 guy isn't being guarded and it's 4v5 on offense. It's INEXCUSABLE for Perk to be on the floor.
Seocnd, after PJ3 was a difference maker against LBJ in Miami, he doesn't see the floor til the 2nd Q? Then Brooks puts Thabo on LBJ and has PJ3 guarding Battier? Horrific. PJ3 was or best defender against LBJ last night when he got is chance in the 3rd Q. Then PJ3 went to the bench when James did. James came back in, PJ3 stayed on the bench while Brooks trotted out RW/RJ/DF lineup...Awful.
Starting Perk in the 3Q killed all of the momentum Russ gave us at the half. It deflated the team and the arena knowing we would have to suffer through Perk's bumbling again.

Fishr/Jackson/Westbrook...OMG. What does PJ3 have to do to get on the court?
That's a play of teh year candidate...
Why isn't PJIII in the game?
