@_justin I don't think it's likely on the Thunder

@_justin I think it's a great point and I noticed that Lamb really 'looked' like he was trying out there on d tonight, trying to fight over screens, etc.  He didn't actually get over any of the screens but he made it look like he was trying really hard to get over them.

@Lost Ones(#blackpride) I'm not saying he's better at the moment, I just don't think it's a good comp.

@ Luke Ibaka is huge for him.  He needed Durant and Westbrook to cover him on the offensive end and Ibaka to cover him on the defensive end but otherwise, he was pretty good.

@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @FF_pickups Because half the time he was too slow to rotate and didn't try to contest.  He sucked at being a weakside defender.

@Slim Reaper (#333333Faction) Way more athletic than Morrow, much faster plus he's longer.

@Lost Ones(#blackpride) Kanter is good offensively but most bigs in the league can run PnR with Westbrook, it's pretty standard.  Kanter can do a lot more, he's good.

@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @FF_pickups @Raven0829 Perkins defensive reputation is SO overblown.  We're going to see that when the team defensive rating doesn't drop just because he was shipped out of town.

@Old Man Game touche!,  I should've said the odds of it happening are extremely unlikely.

@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @FF_pickups @Raven0829 Just watch our P n R with Kanter where he actually, you know, catches the ball.  It's not that Kanter is great, it's that we've been so inundated with Kendrick 'Lead Hands' Perkins that it seems remarkable to see an NBA player who can actually catch a pass.  Go back and watch my Perkins montages from last season to refresh yourself to how he would get blocked at the rim, make catastrophic turnovers, not rotate on D and get called for moving screens literally every game.

@ThunderWins  @FF_pickups Especially the banked three.  Nobody that shoots 50% from the line is ever going to be a good three point shooter, sorry, it's not happening.

@Coaeche Brooookes I rarely bitch about the offense except to say that Brooks likes to use players who suck at offense.

@Obama Adams And I should clarify, stupid is a relative statement, compared to a cat, we are all geniuses, compared to Einstein, we are all dumb.  Scott Brooks is too dumb to be the coach of the Thunder, imo.

@Obama Adams stupid is as stupid does.  If arrogance leads to making mistakes, then it correlates with stupidity.

@Obama Adams I disagree, I think he is dumb.  Just because you are a hard worker and athletic doesn't make you intelligent.  Being arrogant and stubborn are symptoms of stupidity.

@Obama Adams It's really frustrating because this philosophy of Brooks bit the Thunder in 2011 and 2012 of playing situational players regardless of situation.  Brooks just isn't smart enough to get it, he'd really struggle on an IQ test where you have to pick out the patterns.

During Robersons clear aberration of 3 point luck, we got a constant update from Royce after every game but now that Roberson has regressed to the mean, those tendentious updates are conspicuously missing from the biased propaganda that Royce is writing. I'll give you the update since the imperious blogger 'adventitiously' left it out: Roberson is 4-16 during February from 3.

He argues that the thunder can't play player x, y and z because of defense but the defense was terrible with the defensive specialists too.

Roberson 3-13 from Three during February.  Notice how the biased Royce never posts that.  Royce was all over the hot streak, posting it in every recap.

Royce always criticizes people for their results oriented critiques of the Thunder but he does the EXACT SAME THING every post with the only difference being he's results oriented in favor of the wins instead of the losses.

I don't know off hand but all I know is I am cheering for any team in the east besides Cleveland. We might be able to out score Cleveland but LeBron is the kryptonite of the thunder

You need a Kawhi esque defender to play LeBron in a series and we don't have that. A6'8" defender who is quick enough to guard on the perimeter and strong enough not to get abused in the post. Obviously you don't shut down LeBron but you need someone who can hold their own in single coverage because once you start doubling and giving help, you are beat. LeBron is too good of a passer.
