I think Curry has knocked down some shots that even surprised him. I'm not sure he can keep that up. We'll see.

I really like McGary....but damn, dude! I'm beginning to wonder if he's got what it takes to play an 82 game schedule.
5 days ago on Mitch McGary out 2-3 weeks with shin inflammation
I know it's heresy, but when we're up by 20 going into the 4th quarter, I kinda want to put Reggie and our team of scrubs out there on the floor because they played such great defense earlier in the year. I think the only reason that group faded in the latter quarters was due to fatigue. Okay...so bring them in for one quarter to hustle their asses off and shut down our opponents. lol
5 days, 1 hour ago on The Starters: How the Thunder first five has become a menacing lineup
"When watching these guys play defense, I can’t help but think that this is what Sam Presti has been building toward all these years. It’s the ideal Presti lineup, with tons of length and elite athletes at every position."
I agree! The only hiccup was that Harden performed better (and earlier) than anyone had planned. Who knew? This team is what Presti had planned to build around KD ( later Russ and Serge). We should enjoy the ride.
No....no KD to L.A. KD is just explaining why he plans to stick around as long as Russ does.

This is an MVP year for Russ and he started his campaign during last year's playoffs. The dude is playin' insane ball! It's a bit crazy now to think back about how people used to bad-mouth him. I don't mean Thunder fans...I mean the rest of the league. I think Thunder fans always knew what the team had in Russ, but it's not easy to leash-train a honey badger so you can keep it from killing everything in its path! lol
Adams is such a likable goof-ball! The last couple of interviews I've seen with him, he makes some funny face just as the camera cuts away. Last night, he was cutting up as the team was coming over to the sidelines. It looked to me like he was pretending to take a selfie of himself in front of the Thunder huddle while using his hand as the camera. lol
1 week ago on Thunder torch the Suns 112-88, closing in on No. 8
@GREENE1148 [BLAME ADAMS FACTION] I think you're right. Right now, there's not a good place for McGary to play so we might as well use the Blue to round him into shape for the time being. I expect McGary to get called up and push for playing time this year, but there's no need to rush it.

I do hope Reggie accepts the challenge to make our 2nd team the best it can be. I think he's right that it's a unit that could create major problems for other teams. Certainly, the potential is there.

@White_kiwi_thunder One of my friends who works on the broadcast crew said that Russ was talking to him one day and said that he knows he has to be more consistent on the defensive end and stop wasting time arguing with the refs. He needs to hustle back on D and stay locked in.

1 month, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: This is not the end
I object to the title of this post..."This is not the end". End..hell! This is just deja vu! We've lived through losing many close games before when we were 3-29, so call me when we get close to that, okay? For now, we're just a 'tough out'. But unlike most similar teams, we know the cavalry is coming soon! Soon, we'll get McGary...Roberson...PJIII...KD...and Russ back. I don't know about you, but to me, that's almost a starting 5 right there! Hell, they'd probably end up 3rd or 4th in the East. LOL If we don't make the playoffs (and there's a very good chance we may not), we're sure as hell going to scare the goose-crap out of a lot of teams that squeak in.
I was gone all day yesterday, so I'm late to the party, but I love that Russ' team in the video is the Honey Badgers. lol

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Perry Jones fractures the Nuggets, 102-91
@White_kiwi_thunder "The big question is if Scotty can managing them effectively once the other guys get healthy again."
Yes, I think that's a BIG question...and I'm a huge Brooks fan. We had PJIII bringing the ball up the court the other night and he was so quick at times that I was arguing with my wife as to whether it was Jones or Lamb. We have some seriously good multi-position players on our team and I wonder whether we'll be able to use them all effectively.
@GREENE1148 @MrRaysian I almost think that the play of Jones, Thomas, and Telfair has taken some of the heat off of Jeremy. Before all the injuries, everyone was looking to Lamb to step up and I think the pressure may have been a bit of a problem (but don't quote me on that). Now, PJIII has shown he can be the guy we'd been hoping Lamb would be so all Jeremy has to do is go out and show SOMETHING, ya know? Show us a little more progress, regardless of the area, and I think the Thunder will hang with him.
@Dominator I'm good with that...and I think that's all the Thunder need. I REALLY like Adams and can't wait to see what he brings to the team.
2 months ago on Preseason Thoughts: Pelicans 120, Thunder 86
@okcjim I think Adams' minutes are up to Coach Brooks, his points are going to rely heavily on how much KD and Russ feed him the ball, and his rebounds are going to be up to him. My expectation for Adams this year is for him to constantly flirt with a double-double. Oh...and to work on his damned free throws! lol Being able to knock down your free throws is just the price of admission for playing on the Thunder.
@meanstreetsofokc @Lambaaaaaa If he leaves (and I don't think he will), why would KD go to another team that's "just a few years away from a championship"? He will have been there...done that, ya know? If he wants to win NOW, his only option in 2016 will be to go wherever Lebron is playing. Any other team will have about the same odds of winning it all as OKC...and all but one or two will have much worse odds.

Somebody needs to call Thabo and let him know he forgot and left his foot problems here.

@shiki He's waiting until mid-season so the Thunder can do their usual thing of bringing a veteran on board about that time.

2:00...Thunder sign faints at the sight of Perk passing by.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Kevin Durant started from the bottom in new Nike spot
...and Pau decides he should have moved to OKC after all.
I'm not sure he'll ever become enough of a outside threat to keep teams from concentrating on KD and Russ. He can surely be better, but if Serge, who is one of the best mid-range shooters in the league, can't keep teams honest, I don't see how Roberson will. Better ball movement would go a long ways towards stopping teams from doubling KD and Russ. Look at how Lebron is trying to make the Cavs better. It's by moving the ball and hitting the open men.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Tuesday Bolts – 10.7.14
I don't know if I'd say he "shouldn't" develop a consistent shot, but I don't see it as being as important as it was with Thabo. The way I see it, if Andre can grab more rebounds and thereby create more chances for KD, Russ, Serge, or Adams, that's better than having him take outside shots.
@Julius F Wrek LOL I'm just coming at it from the viewpoint that if we don't have anybody else who can effectively run the 2nd team...Reggie doesn't start.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Reggie Jackson and the starting issue
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Julius F Wrek @Crow Doc has to defend his guy, but I'm thinkin' he probably shouldn't have volunteered this. Russ is pretty unique in the NBA...and not just because of the way he dresses. LOL
@ Luke I love Caron and his back-story, but I've got my fingers crossed and I'm hoping it's Lamb.
@Legendary_Dork Maybe I'm weird, but I kinda think that Telfair is a big part of the puzzle as to whether Reggie gets his starting role or not. I mean...at one time, the guy was on the cover of SI and being mentioned in the same breath as Lebron, so....
@Old Man Game It's broken. There's nobody else on here. :-)
3 months, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Throwback Adams
@BangBangThunder What he has to learn (and apparently you, too) is that getting caught can cause you NOT to be a millionaire for the rest of your life...regardless about how he feels about the laws. (Me, too, for that matter...but I've learned.)
Edited to add: Wait...I didn't mean that learning the consequences has stopped me from being a millionaire. I just learned that it could cost me my job and future employment opportunities. lol I only WISH learning that lesson would have allowed me to be a millionaire! LOL
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: ‘Don’t get caught’
@ThunderChick2010 I hear ya. It wasn't an "I'm sorry" video. It was more of a "I'm sorry I got caught" video. He's young. He'll learn...I hope.
@DoubleJ13 Mitch...go smoke with KD. He doesn't get caught. lol
@d21 Really? Is that what I missed yesterday? Why in the hell would they do that? I think Adams deleted it on his own, maybe feeling like he hasn't yet earned the right to talk to Iquodala like that...or thinking he was being over-sensitive and not wanting to start a scene with Iggy, who is probably someone he likes overall.
Edited to add: Btw....not picking on you d21. I realize you were just rehashing converstations from before.

It ought to tell us something about the knowledge of those voting that they selected a trio, none of which, have actually played a single game together. LOL
@Old Man Game True, but I see Abrines as a bigger challenge to whatever role we hope to fit Morrow into. Roberson is pure "D". Any offense you get from him is gravy. Everytime I start thinking about "who fits where", I remember, "Oh yeah...options. Presti is all about options." There is never going to be one clear path.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to Philadelphia
@Old Man Game I like his attitude. If our home-grown shooters don't pan out this year, I think we'll be seeing Abrines in a Thunder uniform before long.
@AlexR44 Eh...Green instead of Noah isn't even in the same league as some of the screw-ups Cleveland has made. Our mistake was one of miscalculation. Potepanko over Nash, Bryant (really?), Peja, or Fish...and Diop over Johnson, Randolph, Parker, or Arenas is, "What the hell were we smoking?" Can you imagine what Presti could have done with the picks Cleveland has had?
@Emergenzy Yeah..."favorites" would be better than "greats". We always cheered when Hash came into games. He's a hard guy not to like.
@Old Man Game I think he just needs more regular minutes. I liked the way Hash played when he was given a chance. He just seems to be one of those guys who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe he just needs some maturity. I loved his antics, but if we're being serious, those aren't professional. I could see him being a solid #2 center for someone once he learns to control his temper and overall demeanor.
@shiki That's pretty much what the article said. Abrines feels he still has a ways to go and thinks he can develop better in Europe. He said he felt the Thunder just wanted him over here so he could get a feel for how they do things. I like that Abrines turned us down. Makes me think: #1 He has a good feel for where he is in his development...#2 He's serious about making the NBA and being a contributor...not just looking for a paycheck...and #3 He has faith he'll get there.
@GlendaGonzales Even if Adams were asked, I don't think he would have dissed Perk and said he deserved to start ahead of him. It might be true, but I think Stephen would let the coaches be the ones to say that...not him, ya know?

@Butterfingers Eh...Texas teams first. The Rockets are NOT better than the Thunder. But maybe the Mavs hate them more, so the quality of the team may have nothing to do with rivalries.
@King of Carrot Flowers the third @Daft_Sober I didn't see what had been posted about the Harden trade, but I could see that being cause for someone getting a "time out". It all depends upon how you talk about it. Rant about it like you're Bill Simmons...and you may get a vacation. This isn't the place for that because most folks on this board understand the reasons behind the trade. May not like 'em...may not totally agree...but we understand.
