@GlendaGonzales  I'm just saying that it's a bit foolish to try to portray it as a bad thing that the Thunder had someone on their team last year who one of the greatest coaches in the history of the game chose to be the coach of the team he's GMing, ya know?  If Phil Jackson thinks Fish is a good person to talk to players, who the f*ck are we to think otherwise?

Quick note to Nate Scott:  Lebron left and won 2 titles....KD left and (if we follow your scenario) came home a loser (assuming OKC doesn't win one).  One is a winner returning to do the same in his hometown...the other is a loser, coming home with his tail between his legs.  Which side to you really see KD choosing?

Was busy yesterday so I'm just now getting to comment.  That Wilbon/Kornheiser exchange is SO amateur!  I know it makes a great story to think that KD will return to D.C....especially when you work for a network that has it's head buried in Lebron's rear end...but I don't think one assistant coach from 10 years ago is going to make one iota of difference.  I'm a lot more worried about NYC with Fish, Phil Jackson, Brian Keefe, and Melo.  That's a crowd that KD could feel comfortable with...and even moreso if they start winning like Fish and Phil seem to think.

I would worry more about this if they hadn't allowed him to play in Summer League.  But since they had the surgery planned...and let him play anyway...that leads me to believe that this surgery wasn't a major area of concern.  Even with Perry's history of knee problems, this doesn't strike me as being the typically over-cautious Thunder way.  I think it's no big deal.

Isn't this the guy who has worked with KD, dating back to his Sonics' days?  This might be a bigger loss than it appears on the surface.

"Carlesimo had hired Keefe before the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City, and Brooks kept him on after he succeeded Carlesimo.

"He was the first guy I worked out with for the team," Durant said. "We've just had a close connection since then. Every summer, he works with me. Every practice. Every game, we're together. It's just over the years, I've just gotten more and more comfortable with him. And it's hard for me to open up to people that easy, so it took a while. But he gets on me.'"

I agree with Royce that Perry's handle looks much improved and that he's being more assertive.  Now, if he can just continue this into the regular season, we may have something!  When Perry attacks the basket, to me, he looks a step quicker and more athletic than everyone else.  I think that's always been there, but he lacked faith in his abilities.  I also agree with Royce about Adams.  He looks like he doesn't really belong.  And truthfully...he doesn't. LOL

@Julius F Wrek  I have a hard time believing that another team is so hot-to-trot on Lin that they'll sit still on a deal with Houston until Houston can see if they get Melo or Lebron.  If it's true, they must be selling Lin for dirt-cheap.

I don't think Miami has anything we need more than Perk.  At this point, we've weathered the storm of Perk's contract and are on the downhill side.  Plus, we may have already seen how best to use him and Adams in the post-season.

That's what I keep asking!  So Fish is in NYC.  Good for him.  Uncle Jeff is in Boston, the Beard is in Houston, and KD is from the D.C. area.  All are things KD likes...like the Knicks, none are title contenders.  I think a lot of this speculation is just wishful thinking.

I also think PJ is the closest we have to matching up to him, but I still think Diaw has a fairly large edge in experience, not to mention the weight advantage.

2 months ago on Spurs push the Thunder to the brink, 117-89

Reply

I think Diaw is an x-factor in this series.  We don't have anyone who matches up well with him...and the dude can play!  Not well enough to take over a game, but enough to make a difference.  These are two very good teams.  Their regular season records over the last few years bears that out.  Ultimately, I think the Thunder are the better team because of KD and Russ.  As Barkley keeps saying, they're 2 nuclear bombs that can go off at any time.  When it's one of those nights, the other guys might as well pack it in and get out their fishing rods.  But you can't count on that happening 4 out of 7 games in the post-season.  Stars cancel out stars and it becomes more about the rest of the team.  I think the reason every game has been a blow-out is because the Thunder and Spurs are both sharks.  The first one who bleeds sets off a feeding frenzy and gets eaten.

If someone would have told us ahead of time that Russ was going to get hurt in the playoffs, I'm sure Brooks would have played Lamb more.  But the whole plan with taking KMart on a rental deal was to make a run at a championship last year...not develop rookies.

I disagree with Tramel that the Clippers have the mental edge now.  Outside of Game 1, they've looked very much like a team that could have been swept by the Thunder.  Not sure how you can take much joy in that.

We kinda forgot Reggie was out there towards the end of the game.  I think he could have solved some of those empty possessions.  Also, during the year, our versatility was one of our strengths...but now, when the Clippers have played their stars virtually the entire game, we don't throw fresh legs at them.  I think I might have trusted Perry to guard Crawford, provide some energy, and maybe hit a 3 for us.  Due to Russ' injury, this year gave us the opportunity to give real minutes to our young guys.  That's an advantage we're not using.
