@Durants Shimmy I also remember how unstoppable Harden was in the close out game. He owned the entire 4th quarter. They tried everyone on him except Dirk. It was beautiful.

@Thunder S "In an ever changing NBA, we have to adapt." - Sam Presti. I think that says yes. An X's and O's advanced metrics guy.
@DakotaJohnsonLario you HAD respect for them to begin with?
@Bmuelle24 Based on $ or based on what we are guessing about his preferences?
Is hiring Budenholzer unrealistic?
@Jooseppi @D0GG probably the only one of that group that could get Russ to give consistent effort at on the ball D.

@tygablood what do you expect to normally happen at a place like Iowa State?
@okcjim @d21 I think he's more upset by the depleting depth of this draft. Even if we didn't draft Lavert, his absence affects the value of our pick.

@The Meerhat Meerkat @midpostgame 8 of the 9 series we lost were West playoff teams.
1 week, 1 day ago on Friday Bolts – 4.17.15
I'm somewhat hesitant on Kanter like some of you, but dang, we could probably outscore any team most nights with a trifecta of Russ, KD, Kanter on the court together. Would be a lot of fun to watch.
@midpostgame without looking, I can definitely confirm we lost the SAS series.
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @d21 @nomad watching vids of him remind me so much of Lamb.
Just based on DX, Oubre seems like a total Presti pick. Long, very promising defender, incredible physical tools. Thankfully, he has at least a little offensive potential.
@Dion Shot First (Team Knee to the face) @seth_22 lol, Russ changing job descriptions.

@Bmuelle24 same thoughts here, I've been really surprised with it. Couple of moments in Episode 9 had me in near tears. Maybe it's because I had low expectations, but I really enjoy it.
1 week, 4 days ago on Thunder stay alive beating the Blazers, 101-90
Not that it's quite as good, but Last Man on Earth has taken the baton from Parks and Rec as the funniest show on a major network, imo.
@DVoegeli man could you imagine a current version of NBA Jam? Russ and KD would be your team.
Pretty incredible to watch opposing coaches make IN GAME adjustments when ours can't even adjust between games.
1 week, 5 days ago on Thunder vs Blazers: Pregame Primer
I felt bad for DJ, Brooks put him out there with 4 guys who can't dribble, 3 of which who can't score at all.
@N0tres I want to miss, but I'll cheer my ass off if we make it.
1 week, 5 days ago on Monday Bolts – 4.13.15
@Webster81 What I've noticed about the Thunder is they don't care if a decent 3 point shooter gets wide open look after wide open look. I'd rather we force guys to make contested 12 footers then give up wide open 3s. Granted, we don't have our best defenders, but our strategy makes it worse. It's some high school level ish.
@Mitch McScorey It is concerning that the current line up seems to get worse every game. Injuries aside, you'd hope to see improvements.

@Di_charden supposedly fighting for a playoff spot.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Thunder vs Spurs: Pregame Primer
we're never scoring again.
@Brussell Sproutbrook another player who is actually getting worse.
Let's catch the Suns.
@RazvanThunder (#DraftSamDekker) let's go Pellies clap clap clapclapclap
Defense: Run around wildly and pray for a missed shot.
Offense: run out of control at the rim and pray for a foul.
I'm sorry, but this roster isn't THIS bad. I've been giving Scotty a pass, but good lord we're getting worse every game. Zero adjustments. The teams we play actually make adjustments against us even though they're beating us and we keep beating our heads against the wall doing the same thing and expecting different results.
I realize we are missing our best defensive players, but the guys we do have are getting worse on that end. Despite it supposedly being a point of emphasis.
we're catching Portland!
we just ran a clear out for Anthony Morrow.
@Mark50c 12 missed lay ups thgouh
@CDNBallJunkie don't care, he needs to be shut down for the season. This team isn't going anywhere.
I've been on the tank bandwagon, but I would at least like to be competitive. This is embarrassing.
@Dion Shot First (Team Knee to the face) @nomad @okcjim @L0rv Yeah I remember someone on here saying they've been more right the past few years than DX and some other ones.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Monday Bolts – 4.6.15
@okcjim @Dion Shot First (Team Knee to the face) @L0rv In fairness, I think draft.net is the way it is because it tries to reflect how dumb some front offices are.
@_justin @nomad Sure, but Simmons' nauseating and hypocritical ranting has made me not like him and I don't want him to feel pleasure.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Monday Bolts – 4.6.15
Also, having KD call him out on it is exactly what Simmons wants. He's probably masturbating to the thought of it right now. Wish KD would stop doing stuff like this.
You know, I hate the Harden trade, but Simmons' comments about it are extremely hypocritical and tiresome. Especially when he says things like "OKC underrated Harden's impact." On that topic, he conveniently neglects to mention that he himself had Harden rated in the 30s as a valuable trade piece in the summer of the trade.

The Perk talk really has to stop. That's so dumb. If Perk is out there with these line ups, they fare fractionally better defensively, bet the net result is far far far worse. Kanter was our best offensive weapon last night, with Perk we lose that game 95-72.
