@tydude Huge NBA from Southern California but hated the Lakers (mainly because of Kobe) so I was an NBA nomad. Loved Durant at UT and hitched my wagon to the Sonics his rookie year, really solidified my fandom when Westbrook got drafted (I went to UCLA at the same time as Russ).

@bmuelle2112 Eh, they're just messing around. It's all in good fun as long as it doesn't get nasty. We've had a lot worse show up here before.

Holy crap, I just watched the Bayless video. I've insulated myself from him and managed to avoid every and any show that he's been on for years. I made a really good decision. WHAT A MORON. My eyes and ears are burning from stupidity. I feel bad for Michael Smith there trying to stave off the avalanche of idiocy raining down on him.

What an awful decision there too. Those movie guys need to give KD his basketball abilities back.

Man, KD has been brutal. How are we winning?
That was flat out stupid Russ.

Um, Ivey was blatantly fouled on the rebound.
That was not a foul. At all.
Really, Josh Smith? That was BS.
James Harden is all kinds of awesome.
Our rebounding is Godawful. Zaza freaking Pachulia is killing us.
... That was better than Griffin on Perk.
That was awful close to a legit block.
I wonder why Pachulia thinks he has a mismatch against Cole. Pachulia doesn't have a mismatch against anybody.
Cole looked alright, I'd say he's at least better than Nazr. I don't know why he never gets any run (barring foul trouble/injury).
Ivan Johnson may be the worst interview ever.
I like it when Kevin Durant makes NBA defenders look silly.
For having such a terrifyingly ugly shot, Cole looks surprisingly confident at the line.
How did Russ hold and jump for a steal at the same time?
Is there like a Eurostep academy? How did James/Wade/Manu/etc become so proficient at it, but so many players don't even use it?
In the sermon at my church today, the Honey Badger was mentioned. Good omen? I think so.

Bahahaha, really Russ?
Home court rim.
Haven't been able to comment since I've been freaking out for the past 10 minutes, but THANKS GOD.
Kevin Durant is king of all that is basketballing.
Holy shit Serge

@Thunder405 Maynor can remind you of Steve Nash in the way that, say, Brendan Haywood reminds you of Dwight Howard. They play the same position and do some roughly similar things, but one is WAY WAY WAY better.
I think Maynor's a solid backup but would be overmatched as a starter. He's a solid passer and can hit some shots, but he just doesn't have the talent/athleticism to create for himself or others.

Not that it matters but ... Dirk fouled Perk, not the other way around.
2 years, 6 months ago on Thunder at Mavericks: Pregame Primer
Jesus, this was one of the more frustrating Thunder games I can remember watching. Awful shooting, awful defense, awful rebounding, awful passing, turnovers, fouls, bad coaching decisions ... I mean, I'm struggling to come up with something bad that didn't happen tonight.
REALLY KD?! WHAT THE HELL IS WITH YOU?
Oh God Russ. Has he ever successfully posted up?
Hey Russ, maybe stay next to Terry.
@JBDW He'd like to make sure that Reggie's in a situation where he has no opportunity to succeed.
Maynor realizing there are no other semi-competent offensive players on the court with him.
Well I appreciate Brooks letting me know that we have no chance. At least the outcome's decided already, I don't have to worry about it anymore.
Really Brooks? Down 13 is not time to give up. What the hell is up with this lineup?
What does Lazar do? I don't even mean what does he do effectively, I mean what does he do period?
Rebounding? What's rebounding?
Really? That was a T? Goodness, this game sucks.
Our offense is complete and total garbage. How hard is it to find an assistant that knows something about offense?
Awful shot Russ. And maybe we should not leave Dirk wide open.
Oh snap Perk.
Oh good, Lazar is in. That'll fix it.
And then we do that. Terrible.
Whoa, actual good rotation on defense. How did that happen?
We can't even make free throws tonight. What a weird game.
Ok, this is getting pathetic.
Wow our defense has been lazy.
Harden doing a far better job on West than Thabo did. On that play at least.
Maybe that will get Harden's shot going. I can hope.
Are we really getting beat on by Brendan Haywood? Yikes.
