5 months, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Moms
@Julius F Wrek @KD35Russ0 I'm not saying Reggie shouldn't play at all. So, no. Reggie can bring the ball up and play the 12 minutes + a few more that Durant is out. But Lamb being completely out of the rotation is terrible
7 months, 1 week ago on Mavs snap their Thunder duck, smoking OKC 109-86
@PJthe3 bka ... @KD35Russ0 That's just not a good enough excuse for me. If Durant is facilitating we can play Fisher at the pseudo 1. Ultimately though this is more about Reggie getting all the minutes and Lamb getting none.
On another note, while speaking of backup 1's, imagine if we would have kept Eric Bledsoe. Holy shit!
@Julius F Wrek @KD35Russ0 Uhhh, Durant?
@PJthe3 bka ... @KD35Russ0 I think Reggie is gone this summer.
@PJthe3 bka ... @KD35Russ0 Totally agree. I also don't buy the Reggie is Russ' backup stuff. Durant is our backup PG. Reggie is playing off the ball a lot of the time he's in and usually for the best!
I don't understand why Reggie's leash is so much longer than Lambs. He's been equally as bad shooting the basketball if not worse than Lamb and plays much lazier defense.
@Durants Shimmy Rangers have never won the World Series
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder lock down the Bobcats, 116-99
116 w/o Thabo and Perk on a top 5 D. Strange
I'd go with Lamb for confidence reasons. Gonna need that guy come playoff time
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Thabo Sefolosha (calf) out Sunday against Bobcats
@Yeah... that's right It took you that long? Most of us realized about 4 years ago
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Cavaliers vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Andre just airballed a FT by about 2 feet....ugh
8 months ago on Trade Deadline Primer: Will the Thunder make a move?
@L0rv @KD35Russ0 Gotcha. What are the conditions on that pick? Any idea?
Does that Sixers 2nd rounder have protection on it? I am seeing top 55 some places, other places I can't even see that the pick was traded. What deal did this come from (Harden deal via somewhere else?)
@KD4theWin Doesn't seem like Abrines has the lateral quicks to ever project to be a very good defender.
8 months ago on Thunder interested in signing Rudy Fernandez?
@DanielLawler Lamb is better for this team. Oladipo needs the ball. He's like Harden in that way.
8 months, 1 week ago on Kevin Durant on winning MVP: ‘It would mean a lot’
@Eastbrook His .493 true shooting would really solve our supposed outside shooting issues
@El Prez @Mr. OBoy @Old Man Game We don't need a top 15 center. That's evident right now. I'm confident he won't be a stiff like Perkins
@El Prez The Plumlees are 3 and 5 years older than Steven and have way more BBall experience. Kind of silly to compare them to Steven right now. We drafted him as a long term project. It's amazing that he's contributing on this team at 20 years old
@Dominator @Collisonismyspiritguide Actually I think since Martin's exception is only 6.5 we wouldn't be able to use it in this situation because Turner makes more than that. From Larry Coon's trade exception FAQ "A rule of thumb is that a trade exception can only be used to acquire a player making up to the amount of the exception plus $100,000."
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Rumor: Thunder ‘expressed interest’ in Evan Turner
I love Andre Roberson
10 months, 1 week ago on Thunder coast in Memphis, 116-100
I don't want to crap on Thabo too much after one game, or one bad stretch to start the season, but are we resigning this guy? Are we going to be able to? Do we even want to? If no, can we deal him somewhere? Can Roberson learn to shoot the three and play a Thabo-like role? I think yes. Can't we spread those minutes between Roberson, Jackson, Perry and Lamb. Let's develop these guys. Thabo isn't helping us win a championship.
11 months, 1 week ago on Clippers eject the Thunder, 111-103
@OKC035 @Jooseppi I've seen him make that little floater a few times now. It's pretty sweet. Really great touch on it. Not many guys have that shot.
I've never missed Daniel Orton so much
@Sustainable Parameters @KD35Russ0 cheap has NOTHING to do with what I said. I'm talking about playing the young (and cheap also) guys that we have. Thabeet and Gomes and Fish do nothing for our development
11 months, 1 week ago on Thunder vs. Clippers: Pregame Primer
If we're going to pledge sustained success and we are going to say we are going to do so by developing our young talent how do you play Fisher and Gomes over Perry in that second half. I don't care about the loss at all. It's the 7th game. But if we're going to constantly preach "process" how do the rotations that happened tonight happen. Brooks was horrible. I just don't get it. 7th game of the season, Serge gets ejected, who cares! Play Perry, see what he can do. Let Lamb force some offense with that heinous group you had on the floor...see what he can do. See if he can carry that second unit, hit some shots, create some things. I'm livid. Don't tell me about process and development if we're not going to practice what we preach
@kiwi_thunder @Turfright @Sustainable Parameters Simmons' point is that you can't simply move on from it. It needs to be remembered and talked about. And as annoying as it is, I agree with him. It is going to go down as one of the biggest What Ifs in nba history
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Wizards vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@The Great Wall Of Adams @Kong Lambchop I don't know. What addition would you like to see to this team that wouldn't disrupt the growth of the young guys. I'd be more inclined to say that Thabo is going to go.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on The Side Part: Week Two – Welcome back
@shiki @KD35Russ0 Right, it's actually that fact that I think makes the 2nd Harden year and Lamb this year comparable. Harden still wasn't playing those full minutes, wasn't asked to do too much, just fit in and developed his game. Lamb is in a similar position with Jackson our true 6th man
@Durienne @OBoy @KD35Russ0 Right. It's like Moneyball. You can't replace Harden (Giambi in the movie). But you can conglomerate guys to get close. Like I say above. Maybe Lamb can fill the Harden scoring role, great! KD has proven he can be the second ball handler and distribute the way Harden used to, awesome! Harden's D was always questionable, maybe Jackson and Lamb together become a nice combo on the wing on D, super! We're in good shape
@Durienne @KD35Russ0 I think you still want Harden. I think it's still an obvious choice. But, from a team construction standpoint Lamb doesn't have to be Harden. If he can score like Harden, KD has taken on that Harden role of second ball handler, Ibaka is better, Adams can contribute. I think our team is still very good. Not sure if our ceiling is as high, but it's close
Does anyone else sit around and look at the per 36 numbers for lamb and 2nd year harden and feel at least a little better? I think J lamb can keep this up. Not saying I wouldn't rather have Harden, that's obvious, but I'm personally feeling much better after these first few games with Lamb
@Sigmund @International Man of Mystery @okcjim He'll make 125 FT.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Thursday Bolts – 11.7.13
@ReverseApacheMaster Ya. Kanter did the same thing two years ago. Ineligible at Kentucky then went 3rd to Utah.
1 year, 11 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Thunder Trax
@Sigmund Ya he had no pedigree of winning
Another Raptors loss...And with the 4th pick, the 2013 NBA Champion Oklahoma City Thunder select...
@anonymous12345 @SoonerSpens @f5alcon @diddoff I like to use this site...at the bottom are all the picks traded for the draft. Ours isn't up there yet so it's a little out of date.
1 year, 11 months ago on Friday Bolts – 11.9.12
@anonymous12345 @SoonerSpens @f5alcon @diddoff It's protected for the next 3 years I think
@Jooseppi @Old Man Game We should have brought in Jeff Foote for a look. He was on that Cornell team that made the Sweet 16. Legit 7 footer, has put on some weight and broke in with the Hornete a little bit last year
1 year, 12 months ago on Bulls 94, Thunder 89: Five thoughts
@DennisBerry @MisterJohnsonOKC @elginthunder Haha, interesting. I was being sarcastic and saying Lazar
@MisterJohnsonOKC @elginthunder Ya Harden sucks. Hayward>Harden
@Keith00 @kennygee90 @OBoy Jones III @justin_mia Absolutely. My feeling is moving Perk this year and getting cheap help for 3-4 years is worth it. And yes, it might hurt our chances this year, but you are right, put it on Harden and Ibaka's shoulders to play a great series before you put it on Perkins
1 year, 12 months ago on Tuesday Bolts - 10.23.12
@Keith00 @ou_sas That Orlando team is a mess. I just don't see them being out of the lottery for many years
@jdstorm @Keith00 @ou_sas I also don't know that they thought they would make the playoffs. They won what? 32 games that year. It was before the CP3 era. They really just had Blake. They finished with the 8th worst record, so they were very willing to give up a top 10 pick. A top 10 pick would be huge for us
@Keith00 @ou_sas Right, that was addressed. Maybe it's a protected pick. Still, even if it's top 7 protected this year, would you not take the chance. We are losing Perk and Maynor anyway. Why not get a real asset out of them
@kennygee90 @OBoy Jones III @justin_mia So then the Thunder have no chance after this year when they amnesty Perk? The point is we make this move and give ourselves a great chance for the next 3-4 years and still have a shot this year
Interesting, and too bad. Because that is a pretty strong precedent of dumping a horrible contract and having to include a top pick. And if I remember it was only Mo Williams in return. Which I think Perk on a decent contract and Maynor is pretty good return considering the Davis trade
@ou_sas Actually wait, I thought of this because my precedent was Baron Davis. Clips traded him and a top pick to just get rid of him. And then the Cavs amnestied him. I thought that the contract had to be signed in the old CBA. Or did the Cavs make that trade before the lockout., I don't remember
@justin_mia @kennygee90 Right, Perk being a good rebounder is just not true. I think that Cole is probably a better rebounder. Granted he's also not even half the post defender. Dwight just doesn't scare me though as a pure make a move on you and score in the post.
@ou_sas Right. Shoot. Forgot about that. Darn. I wonder if we could just keep him on the bench this year and trade his expiring contract for nothing next year.
