"One side thought from me: The people that keep bringing this up to paint the picture of team incompetence or whatever, are basing it off a player that got hurt in the 1970s, and a guy that was 7-foot-6 and 400 pounds. They also probably don’t think you should vaccinate either."


Royce with the zing.


And I appreciate the pro-vaccine stance. Anti-science people make me very angry.

@_justin @Landstander @RazvanThunder (#DionRising) They don't always, but they *should*.


In this instance, the specialist(s) said that the soreness was normal, and if he could tolerate it, he could play. 


Once it regressed, they shut him down and sought out MORE specialists.


I'm not happy that the Thunder won't play in the Finals this year, but I'm  happy that none of the players quit on the season. I choose to find a silver lining in maybe seeing a win or two in the playoffs.


Also, while the Jeff Green situation was shady and not cool, it has nothing to do with this beyond being tangentially related via the word "medical".


I'd like OKC to hire Phoenix's old medical staff. Whoever they had keeping Nash going.

@_justin @RazvanThunder (#DionRising) By relying on specialists to give their opinion and then make decisions based on that?


That's pretty much the only acceptable route for any non-medical professional, in my opinion.

@f5alcon @Landstander @propsizzle Yeah, I don't think he is either - but my wife started taking my daughter to the zoo when she was just a few months old. Everyone benefits! This was from Haunt the Zoo when she was about 6 months old.

And I think the roar was toned down, but mostly because they were little kids and he didn't want to make them wet their pants.

@propsizzle @Landstander @f5alcon That is the primary benefit, but it helps the kid get exposed to more things.


The last time I took my daughter to the zoo (20 months old), it rained...we went to the herpetarium and looked at the snakes and lizards.


I figure that the more stuff she sees while little, the more connections she'll make between them and books and movies and school and...etc etc.


Also, it's just fun to take your kid places and have them smile at things. Royce's kid is cute.

Besides, now she knows the zoo and is really excited when we ask if she wants to go.

My favorite part of the game tonight (aside from the win, obviously) was the effort from *everyone*. It was the same sort of effort the 3-12 team was putting out...but with more talent.

I'm going to be very unpopular for this, but I WANT the Thunder to keep perkins. A big issue this year has been team chemistry, and if KD/Russ want Perk, then I'm going to defer to the people who actually play with him.

Reply

@Durants Shimmy These are all good tips. It'd be wise to do all of these things (at the time of this comment).


DO: Indicate an interest in their industry

DON'T: Ask about any form of compensation - a career fair isn't the place for that (unless they bring it up for some reason)


DO: Smile at people

DON'T: Stare at your feet, avoid eye contact, or look bored


DO: Find something to be genuinely excited about for each company you talk to

DON'T: Be overly formal or casual in your conversation. (Don't be stiff, but don't show up drunk either.)

@RazvanThunder (#McGaryHypeTrain) I don't really get it, but the "Westbrook doesn't pass" narrative still gets thrown around by people I know in OKC. 


I try to explain that it isn't that he doesn't pass, it's that sometimes he gets the idea that unless he hits a pull up 2, the game can't continue for the Thunder.


My point is (in a roundabout way) that if local people harbor serious misconceptions about how Westbrook plays, then the national media probably won't get it right either.
