@[corporate shill] @OKC035 I don't think you can call it 'more important' - but you can say that some things happen...
1. More timeouts are used
2. More plays are drawn up
3. The crowd gets more into it (potentially)
4. Conditioning comes into play
A point is a point no matter when you score it, but I like 4th quarter scoring because it comes because of / in spite of some of these things.

@endercpl Royce is just gathering up Thunder links for us -- you don't have to click on the link.
I agree with getting sick of the James Harden stuff, but Royce doesn't control what these people write...yet.
DUN DUN DUNNNNNN

@Bry Bry @tygablood No, it's legit. From Fox Sports Ohio.

@tygablood @Landstander @Lasch No, I don't think he's unhappy...Gundy turned the program around from a 'happy to get a bowl game' program to 'genuinely disappointed in a 10-2 season'.
If that doesn't earn you respect, I don't know what will. (Also, it'd be nice if they could keep their coordinators for more than one or two seasons.)

@Lasch @Landstander People would run the athletic director out of town before they watched Gundy go. It'd be career suicide for him to let that happen, in my opinion.
@tygablood Gundy won't leave OSU - alma mater and all.
@d21 Holy crap...let's hear it for the NAIA

@SeanzieCrews Yeah, because LeBron is just that much more of a #1. Or something. I don't know, I get tired of listening to national narratives.
@Bryson If it means he'll be as prone to injury, I'll pass

Why not have Reggie and Westbrook both start at the 1.5?

San Antonio didn't have to deal with such draconian tax rules, though
Kobe has 5 rings...I doubt he would have stayed with zero
@Turfright @Landstander @HooBoy I actually ran into Nick Offerman and Megan Mulally at the Johnnies on Britton Road.
They were standing right in front of where I parked. His mustache is even more awesome in person.

@HooBoy I actually think it's pretty cool that he can trust his wife to take care of it while he's gone.
I get a kick out of her writing style, and I feel compelled to show my wife the fashion comments.
@FallenOSIRIS @Thunder S I'd be happy with Milwaukee, myself.
Unless you meant "actually possible" matchup.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Player Power Rankings: When Royce is away…
These might be the best power rankings ever.
I love the Hasheem all caps ranking.
@The Great Wall Of Adams @DJ_Yardman @f5alcon @OSBC @ Luke @Landstander @The Big Kiwi
The Thunder got better when Perkins got here. He works hard, he plays hard, and he's very vocal on defense.
It wasn't just that Harden got more minutes, or that Ibaka became a starter. It's a matter of him providing part of an identity that the Thunder lacked in terms of defensive intensity. I think they borrow that from him sometimes.
While that hasn't translated to rebounds or points, I think it's interesting that so many people argue that the team would be better off without him at all.

@The Great Wall Of Adams @ Luke @Landstander @The Big Kiwi I'm not arguing your logic -- I AM arguing that Brooks and Presti don't work like that. It's been pretty apparent over the past several years.
Harden didn't start, in part, due to Brooks not wanting to mess up any team chemistry with lineups.
@The Great Wall Of Adams @Landstander @The Big Kiwi I don't think Presti will get involved in lineup decisions like that. It doesn't seem like it's his way
@The Great Wall Of Adams @The Big Kiwi Then I would love for you to share some of your stash...
Brooks moving to any starting lineup that is not Westbrook, Thabo, KD, Ibaka, and Perkins will just not happen.
