@Legendary_Dork We were talking about how Reggie was the only one who went over and talked to the Rockets. Didn't think about the implications at the time. Hmm.....

I had to change from my "loveable Lamb" to my "psycho Lamb" avatar because I think this portion of the season demands it.
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

2 weeks, 5 days 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.
1 month 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.
1 month, 1 week ago on Monday Bolts – 10.13.14
@shiki He's waiting until mid-season so the Thunder can do their usual thing of bringing a veteran on board about that time.
1 month, 1 week ago on The Side Part: The United States of Funaki
Yeah, the Grantland article was crazy. The Thunder have built through the draft as much or more than the Spurs.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Thursday Bolts – 10.9.14
2:00...Thunder sign faints at the sight of Perk passing by.
1 month, 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.
1 month, 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.
1 month, 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. :-)
2 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
2 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.

I want to see golf helmets!
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Wednesday Bolts – 8.27.14
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.
2 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?
3 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Phantom slams
@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.
3 months ago on Thursday Bolts – 8.21.14
@okcjim I'm not sure how much he's been here, but he said he was going to stay in OKC and work on his game. I suspect all the team is taking a breather...to visit family and such. I would expect Steven back before long. Heck, didn't I read where Presti was even in New Zealand with him the other day? lol If so, they're not too worried about what Adams is doing in his off-season so far.
I think every player would like their own team, but if they look around, they might notice that the very best teams don't operate like that entirely. While there may be a player who is a click above, it's really more of a partnership. That's why I never felt like there was a fight between KD and Russ over whose team it was. It wasn't "yours" or "mine"...it was "ours".
@FckLbJ He'll change KD's ranking once he has to play against him. lol

@claeys You're right. It was clear from the get-go that this was Dirk's year. Everything he threw anywhere near the basket went in.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Friday Bolts – 8.8.14
@daft_drunk Uh...don't get me started on that video. Not that it's bad...it's actually quite good. But that's the problem...and that's probably all I ought to say.
@GlendaGonzales Those days weren't all that much different than when the Thunder rejoiced at getting Nenad Krstic because we finally picked up a player that other teams wanted, ya know?
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Kevin Durant withdraws from the 2014 World Cup
@GlendaGonzales I'd like to, but my wife isn't a big football fan and following OU/OSU about taps her out. I'd have to watch in my man-cave.
@GlendaGonzales Yep...he was all of those things. "Bullet Bob Hayes"...he was the fastest man alive. Winner of the 100 meter dash (or was it still yards then?) in the Olympics. Played wide receiver at Florida State and the Cowboys got him because there were questions as to how good he was at football. He could beat anybody downfield...whether he actually caught the ball or not was the mystery. lol But, hey...he's faster than any other player and at least some Cowboy player was "the best" at something. That's how desperate we were in those days.
@GlendaGonzales Yeah...I'm old. When we played football in the front yard, we pretended to be LeBaron, Don Perkins, and Lenny Moore. That's how old I am! LOL We were too young to know, "Dude...you're white! Perkins and Moore are black!"
@Teh Ghost of Lamb THESE days they are, but I used to watch every game that aired. It's just that my interest has been whittled down over the last...oh, 50+ years or so.
@GlendaGonzales True, but I think KD is also seeing the "what if's" and feeling the responsibility of being who he is. I think that if we were simply tired from playing the regular season, he would have played for Team USA. But I think KD is also asking himself, "What if Russ' knee doesn't hold up? What if Serge doesn't come back? Am I prepared for that?"...and I think the answer was, "No...not like this." If he were some unknown player, he might be able to pull it off. But he's not...he's freakin' Kevin Durant....so everybody wants a piece of his time. Basically, I guess I'm saying that I suspect this is more mental than physical.
@GlendaGonzales I was telling a friend yesterday that I've almost quit watching the NFL since the Thunder came to town. The Cowboys are the only team I follow and I don't even watch their games the way I used to. My friend said, "Yeah, well...it could be that they suck these days." LOL LOL True...there's that. But I have been a hard-core Cowboy fan since Eddie LeBaron was the quarterback. I can still remember celebrating when we got Bob Hayes because we finally had someone who was better than everyone else at SOMETHING...and that was a moral victory. So the current troubles of the Cowboys are just a speed-bump that will pass in due time.
