I would give Perk away and throw in a bag of sunflower seeds to sweeten the deal.
2 years, 7 months ago on Thunder Player Power Rankings: Batman and Batman
41 Reg Season games, then they had 9 payoff games ... if my memory serves me correctly.
I agree there is nothing wrong with expecting to win. Last year I felt we needed to be the sixth man and hep them win. This year the team does not need us, they are good enough to do it on their own. Don't get me wrong, I love this team and the fact they are winning. I just don't want to lose the environment we had.
I have Season Tickets but because of several issues last nights game was only the 5th game we have been able to attend this year. What has happened to the fans, the arena was DEAD? There were times the scoreboard urged people to get out of there seats and I looked around and 3/4 of the crown just sat there. That would have never happened last year.
Last year I attended about 45 games and each time I entered the arena I felt that outcome was in doubt. I don't feel that this year as I walk in the arena expecting to win. Is that wrong? Is that what we have all become? Have we become Dallas and Laker fans? Last year the crowd willed the team to win. This year the crowd is just sitting there watching, waiting for them to put the team away. I miss last years crowd and I want them back... that crowd is who we are. I hope we don't lose that.
Can we get a T-Shirt made that says "Free Cole"?We need to wear them to the games. Maybe Presti will see them.

One word response for this.... NO!!!!

I was looking at that also this morning. The fact that we have that record we do with only playing 10 Home games speaks for itself.

That's what I love about it. The picture says "I don't care what I did on the last play, blink and I am going to put it on your head..."
This is awesome... and it is my new avatar.
We need this on a T-Shirt.
@diddoff They have me locked up for 3 years on the tickets. I guess I will have to sign my extension after that... I feel much better about buying tickets now that I see the Thunder are doing the right thing with the players.

How long do have we got Presti locked up for??? This man can't get away from us....
2 years, 8 months ago on Why the structure of Westbrook’s deal is important
I don't know if I could take that Clown voice each home game??? I like what we have.
2 years, 8 months ago on On Westbrook’s extension: ‘Both sides are dug in right now’
Sorry to change the subject... watching the MIA/SAN game. Does anyone else find these local announcers (in arena ones) that yell out who scores incredibly annoying??? Miami and Memphis are really bad. It sounds like some Circus Clown yelling CHRIIIIIIS BOOOOOSHE.... really slowly and very loud.
"Multiple team sources have told me that the Thunder’s preference is to keep the entire core."
That is the best news I have heard in a long time...
"Thabo missed a 3 tonight. He sucks again. (Just kidding.)"
That was funny... great comment.
2 years, 8 months ago on The Thunder top the Hornets 95-85 to make it five in six nights
"Mullens in a two-dribble one-on-one drill. I’m serious. The drill was you stayed on the floor if you scored and there wasn’t a player that got more reps than Mullens. Not KD, not Ibaka, not Westbrook — Mullens was dominant."
That is great but that is not what we needed BM to do... we needed and inside presence and he can't do that. He is not built for that kind of a player. We have enough scoring, we don't need another one-on-one player.
2 years, 8 months ago on Did Presti blow it with Byron Mullens?
Mullens just oozes lazy... that is just what you think when you see him. Cole is active and is trying to be involved in every play. You watch BM with Charlotte and he just stands around. The reason is so good with them is that everyone around him is either equal to him or worse. The reason he was bad with us is that everyone around him is better than him.
I love the way he fouled that guy with his knees. He almost jumped right over him. Then he just smiled.
2 years, 8 months ago on Thunder doesn't miss a beat handling San Antonio 108-96
I guess we are going to have to trade Harden for him now?
2 years, 8 months ago on Rockets vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
I have said this about him before... "That man is cruelly depriving a village somewhere of an idiot."
2 years, 8 months ago on Friday Bolts - 1.6.12
We would never run anything like that with less than 35 seconds remaining... when is the last time we have run and scored on a set play that looked designed?
2 years, 9 months ago on Wednesday Bolts - 1.4.12
I heard a College Coach once say that this is how a team plays:
25% of the time they play worse than they raally are
50% of the time they play like they really are
25% of the time they play better than they really are
Which were we last night? I am not sure. I think we can actually play at the "worse 25%" and win a lot of games. It more depends on who we are playing and how they play. I think Portland played a very good game and probably played "better 25%" last night. Even if we played a "50%" game it was not good enough.
A lot of teams "better 25%" would not beat our "worse 25%". We have the better players and they will trump performances that are hit and miss a lot of the time.
@JimboSlice@f5alcon@sutpen@Old Man Game
I say the person with the most points on this site be appointed Coach. He must know something because we like what he says...

That man is cruelly depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.
That was I joke... I hate him
@sutpen@Old Man Game
I am tired of the same old coaches just moving from team to team. Each new team thinks that this will be the right fit for them.
I think it is time for some new blood from the College ranks. Look for the best coach who actually knows how to coach the fundamentals.. knows how and when to call plays... knows what adjustments to make.... knows how to win. I am not sure who that is but I am sure Presti could find them.
I am not fine with tonight... He needs to go now. Every year we wait is one less year we have with KD. Why waist those years?
That is my point, the only way we get rid of Brooks is if the season goes south.
Yes I know... but if we continue to do good and make it far in the playoffs Brooks will get the extension.
You know I hate to say this... If the Thunder were to have a bad season we might have a chance at a championship. It will be the only way we could get rid of Brooks and we might be able to sign RW for much less.
I doubt it will happen but the way we played last night it looks closer then ever. No way will we win with Brooks. He has no idea what he is doing.
"A couple things the Thunder have struggled with early in this season but gotten away with finally bit them against the Mavs. Rebounding, halfcourt offense and complete defense."
That may be a couple of things but it is about 85% of the game. I think we missed Cook more than we can admit. Harden must play with the second team because no one else can score.
2 years, 9 months ago on OKC's bench doesn't produce as the Mavs coast, 100-87
Can we please have a moratorium for anything relating to B. Mullens on the site? It was bad enough I had to see him on our bench but now that he is finally gone I don't want to hear his name.
He is got to be one of the worst NBA players I have seen. I watched him last night and he did not even attempt to get a rebound when the shot went up. What a waste of height...

Thanks... he is such a girl. Sorry to any girls out there.
2 years, 9 months ago on TGR 63: Don't neuter Westbrook
Did you see Beasley at the end of the game bleeding all over the court? They did not say what happened to him. I saw him mouth "That's my Bone"? while looking at his finger?? Anyone with any news?
I love watching Brook's news conference after the game. He has nothing to say because he had nothing to do with the game. What could he say other than any of us that watched it? He gets paid to have a great seat to watch the game. Even he could not mess up the outcome of this one. That is was the first game that I went to where there was NO worries of the outcome... ever.
2 years, 9 months ago on Oklahoma City throttles Phoenix, 107-97
So true... we are handicapped by is lack of coaching ability. If we win the Championship it will be the players dragging Brooks with them.
2 years, 9 months ago on Those old Thunder crunchtime issues
I just saw that play and came here to post it. That is a play we can't design right now.
I think I saw that answer and question on Jeopardy recently.
I have always thought that the way you tell if a coach can coach is to look at his plays directly after a timeout. If he can't get that one play called and ran then he is worthless. Watch the plays KU runs after time outs and to start the half... they almost always get the shot they want. They don't always make it but they have a clear direction. That would be a dream to see from Brooks.
I guess Brooks just worked on that one play all summer. Maybe next year he will add play #2.
That last shot was much better than they got on most last possession shots last season. Last season he would have been 5' further out.
I wonder what goes on in the huddle prior to the last shot. I think... they called a timeout for that? Each final possession shot last season looked very similar to an improvise to me.
I watched that KD shot over and over... can't help but notice Perk's walking screen to free up KD for the shot. I doubt that would ever be called in that instance but still an illegal screen it was.
I am not complaining about the no-call at all.
I watched that too... they were gone so fast. They must have been bummed out.
2 years, 9 months ago on View from the crowd: Kevin Durant’s game-winner against Dallas
That needs to be our pre-game/player intro video from now until... he does it again.
" Brooks blaming him for losses doesn't sound believable"
I agree... I can't see that happening. KD would step in and stop that. He knows he needs a great season and he is pushing.
2 years, 9 months ago on Friday Bolts – 12.30.11
I agree that the lack of offensive sets puts him in bad spot... but sometimes he comes down with the ball and you can just tell he is not giving it up. The play never has a chance to set up because he takes over...
As much as I love RW I just don't think he fits here. He is obviously a "Me first" player and the Thunder seams to be all about the team. You could see when KD went over to him just before the game he had a funny look on his face.... not the usually "Let's get it on" look.
ESPN WInter Forecast:
It is funny how last year a lot of people were saying that we were too young to win a Championship. Now 1 year later, we are viewed as a veteran team by some and picked to win. We are still very very young and I hope we can handle the pressure.
2 years, 9 months ago on Tuesday Bolts - 12.27.11
Wow... Mullens had 10 points tonight with the Bobcats. Unbelievable...
