@OBoy @DXL The cliche is "more jobs than a Jamaican." Jamaican immigrants are noted for being extremely hard workers.

@Lost Ones @cfountain Yeah, right, Reggie has such a bad situation. OKC has NEVER developed any young players into stars.

Freshman year per 40 stats:
Hibbert: 12.9 ppg, 46.9% shooting, 8.8 rpg, 3.2 blks, 4.6 turnovers, 5.8 fouls
Adams: 12.3 ppg, 57.1% shooting, 10.8 rpg, 3.5 blks, 1.9 turnovers, 2.8 fouls
It took Hibbert another 5 years for him to become the player he is. Would any team have this much patience for Adams to develop? Does Adams have anything like Hibbert's Jamaican work ethic?

@OkcBaby @f5alcon "Presti best offerings"? What the fuck kind of Engrish is this?

Also, on MCW: "Carter-Williams shot looking better. Shot around 55% NBA 3. 65% college 3. 80% mid range during workout."
I very much doubt MCW makes it past OKC at 12. He's one of the few players with an all-star ceiling in this draft.
MCW put up remarkable rebounding/assist/steals and blks numbers. The only players from major college programs to put up similar numbers are Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, Andre Miller and Jamaal Tinsley. Two Hall of Famers, one excellent veteran, and a 9-year journeyman. Not bad company. Ed Weiland makes the case for MCW here:

Chad Ford tweets:
"Muscala had one of the best workouts I've EVER seen for a big man. Literally missed just 2 shots entire workout. Crazy skills for big."
Muscala also had the top shooting percentages at the combine shooting drills.

@nomad @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard How in the world do you know OKC hasn't brought or isn't going to bring Bullock in for a workout? Working quietly is a good thing.

Phil Pressey worked out with OKC. In his best games he looks like a first rounder, he dominated against UCLA. There's a speed and flashiness to his point guard play that Larkin and Canaan lack. He can't shoot.

Harden finished the season 11th overall in PER just ahead of Amare Stoudemire and Andray Blatche.
Basically a one way player at this point. Fell asleep a lot on defense.

43.8% shooting from the field, 36.8% from 3-point range, 3.8 turnovers a game in the regular season.
39% shooting from the field, 34% from 3-point range, 4.5 turnovers a game in the post season.
James Harden is becoming Allen Iverson 2.0

Perk played 23 minutes a game in the Memphis series. Gasol played 41.8 minutes each game, and Randolph nearly 40 minutes a game. Perk obviously could only guard one of the two for the stints he was in the game.
So for 58 individual player minutes each game, either Gasol or Randolph had a matchup against other members of the OKC frontline. The fact is the majority of the punishment inflicted by Gasol and Randolph came against the other guys.
I understand Perk had a horrific series but Ibaka, Collison, KD and Thabeet all failed to keep the Bruise Brothers in check.
Why does Perk take 100% of the criticism but the other guys get off scot free?

@Jooseppi @DXL I know. Eurostashes are undervalued assets because they're drafted lower than their actual value (see Pekovic and Asik drafted in the second round), and smart/patient teams pick them up on the cheap.
But if Saric isn't undervalued what's the point?

@okcjim Pretty good scorer in transition. Not sure I see the talent of a Mirotic.
Mirotic went 23rd overall in 2011, and now he's the best player in Europe. It's an indictment of this draft that Saric, a much weaker player, could go 12th or 13th overall.
@TrueChamp Sorry Tyler.

@TrueChamp @DXL Oh BURN.
@nomad @DXL @Bryson I'd like to see Dwight go to Houston and turn around that team's defense from average to elite. Then I'll be a believer.
@TrueChamp All the side parts have been crummy.
@Bryson @DXL It's funny to use Jameer Nelson as an example of a teammate guaranteed to bring your team defensive rating down. Dwight anchored great defenses in Orlando with Nelson AND Turkoglu AND Rashard Lewis.
@Bryson @DXL Silly hypo. Where is the prime Hall of Fame defensive center who spends years in the bottom third of team defense rankings?
Dwight when he was awesome, anchored a bunch of so-so defensive players, and turned Orlando into a great defensive team.
Dwight's play regressed in LAL. It's been noted by many. Ask any Lakers fan, he wasn't that great last year.

@okcjim It's true. Zeller is a way better player.
Chad Ford's latest mock has Olynyk at 23rd overall. Those short arms have him dropping like the stock market.
