Everyone is so anxious to set up a narrative about Kevin leaving OKC for DC.  It's two years away people, relax. Lot's of things might happen between now and then.  I hate the media sometimes.

@kfmsooner  Great Book.  Reamde by Neal Stephenson a similar but less lighthearted story.  The Demi Monde is also similar and adds a Steampunk flair.

Anyone else think that if we'd gotten any offensive production out of Thabo/Lamb, we win the game?  Lamb missed every shot last night including a layup.  His streakiness is making Kevin Martin look consistent.

@Thunderdaddy Agreed.  A good portion of rebounding skill is knowing where to be when the shot comes off the rim.  Uncontested rebounds are just as much rebounds as contested ones.

@Metta runs with scissors I believe the pricing is based on the face value of your tickets.  Round 1 - 110%, Round 2 125%, Round 3 150% and Finals 200%.  Those percentages may not be exact, but they're close.

 @andrew35 As for food, it depends on what you want.  The Mantel is the best restaurant in bricktown in my opinion, but it's pricey.  Mickey Mantle's is also good, but also pricey.  Nona's is average but pricey.   If you want something cheaper but interesting, Toby Keith's is kind of fun in a rednecky sort of way and Crabtown isn't bad.  Earl's has pretty good barbecue.

 

Don't know what you are looking for in a bar, but Deep Deuce cafe is a great local bar.  The Skirvin bar is always full pre and post game.

 

As for adult entertainment, I don't know.

1 year, 3 months ago on Practice Report: Scott Brooks unlikely to sit players

Reply

It's not so much what Bayless says, but how he says it.  Note all the references to "I" and "me" and how he's "right".  The article's not about Durant and Westbrook, it's about Skip being right about and Durant and Westbrook (at least in his mind).  It's like Jim Traber, only Douchier.

Brooks clearly got outcoached last night.  We came in determined to stop the inside game and it was working.  Pop calls a timeout and tells his bigs to start kicking it out and the 3 point shooters to shoot more and suddenly, our lead is gone. Brooks never recovered.  Later in the game, we went small to battle the outside shot and he has them go right back inside.  Brooks never dictates the game against the Spurs - Pop just forces it on him.

 

Brooks has Durant bringing the ball up the court - Pop sends Jackson out to guard him at mid-court.  Quick TO.  I know Pop outcoaches a lot of guys, but that was really frustrating last night.

With all the whining about Fisher, no one mentions that Scotty left Perk on the bench last night and let Ibaka guard Amare?  That was a really good decision and he should get credit for it.  Also, i think he plays Fish because he knows the offense and will do the little things most fans don't see like maintain solid spacing and set good screens.  Reggie is still learning those things.  Scoring isn't everything.  I think we'll see more of Brewer when he knows our system better.

OT:  So what's an acceptable record over the next six road games.  3-3? 4-2?  To me, if they go 4-2 that's pretty damned good.  Beat Dallas, Sacto, Denver once and then either the Clips or GSW.

 @SoCal Thunder  @ThunderChick2010 Yeah, SoCal, I didn't get your message until after we were already in the arena.  My wife was anxious to get inside, so we ate and drank before the game in Staples.  I told her to keep an eye out for Collison jerseys, but we didn't see you.  The Laker fans around me were OK.  Most of them were resigned to how bad they suck.  At the start of the game, my wife turned around to the Laker fans behind us and said "Don't you guys ever stand up?"  One of them looked down there nose at her and said "This isn't Oklahoma City."  So, we stood up a lot from that point forward.  It was really fun being there for that beatdown.  I was amazed at how quiet that arena can get.  We were pretty close (about 25 feet behind Dr. Oz on the corner) and we could hear the players and coaches talking on the floor.  That never happens in OKC.

I've noticed he's trying to "baby" his layups rather than trying to dunk which causes them to come up short.  I wonder if he's trying to not miss dunks like he did last year.

One important fact - amnesty only works for contracts that were in effect at the time the most recent CBA was signed.  So Perkins is eligible to amnestied, but anyone signing a new deal after the CBA is not.

I'm an OU fan and I would love an alternate Thunder Orange jersey.  That said, I know a bunch of OU fans that tell me they would never wear or support anything orange.  It's silly, IMO, but that's the way it is.

I sat behind those two guys from Grantland.  They acted like a couple of total dickheads the whole game.  They turned around and pointed at thunder fans when the Spurs did something good, and they danced around in a kind of "in your face" way during timeouts.  I thought they were a couple of drunk college kids that made the drive.  No class.

Lost in all the talk about the Lakers D is the fact that the Thunder D was impressive as well.  The Laker bigs got theirs but everyone else, including Kobe, were pretty much held in check.

So what exactly is Carlisle saying?  That Serge hitting Dirk, even if it was by accident, was dirty?  I don't get it.  Yeah if Serge hit him on purpose it should have been a foul and probably a T, but why would he do that?  It makes no sense and Serge has not played that way all season.   Carlisle is just a whiner trying to get the calls leaning his way.

I know I'm scared to death.  Last season the team felt like it was charging into the playoffs on fire.  This season it feels like we are limping in just trying to stay alive.  I know it's all perception, but I'm more worried about a round 1 exit than I am excited about the playoffs.

 

However, a decisive game 1 victory against the mavs would make it all better.

I thought we already had the home court over the Heat?  We have a full game lead with one to play and we hold the tiebreaker.  So, even if we lose and the Heat win, we still have home court.

I think this is where the lack of being in a big market helps us from a perception standpoint.  We have seen almost no "Panic in Thunderland" articles in the national media.  Heck, the Clippers lost a few games and the media types were ready to fire Vinny.  The Heat had a low spot and all kinds of "What's wrong with the Heat?" articles appeared.  Nice to not see those about us.

So last night was my birthday and they gave it away with me in attendance.  Thanks a lot.  I guess maybe the team doesn't care about me after all.  I'm crushed.

 

On a serious note, has anyone else noticed Durant''s demeanor as he comes out during the pre-game intros?  He looks tired and disinterested and not jacked up at all.  That has really been concerning to me.  I think he's sick of the regular season and ready to get on with the playoffs.  He's not playing with a lot of fire right now.
