@cemitten harden used up all the points there weren't any left
1 year, 8 months ago on Blazers vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@Remify @EternalThunder has anybody seen him in danny pudis book club ? hilarious he plays the reading sensei
@cemitten @Old Man Game i love it i want to see alot more lamb chop pj3 those 2 running the break with em could be sick!!
@BallSoHarden @Thunder S your name makes me sad
@Jooseppi @Remify if they go 0-5 he may start strangling teammates and shooting up post offices
i love blake griffin commercials
@jdstorm @OkcBaby swap thabeeter for martin
@yarkmu he wont we wouldnt give a whiner like him a max deal
@bmuelle21 nice pic
@BallSoHarden no if they want to team up they can just go to dallas
@dollarbillrussell @DooDooBrooks his line up could have been a little senior heavy since we were playing the spurs but against weaker opponents i would expect more play for the rooks or at least PJ3
@EternalThunder that one i actually get tho
1 year, 8 months ago on Friday Bolts - 11.2.12
ok so did anyone else hear harden every time they said martin?
@EternalThunder @color_me_confused sounds like you have a fan
@EternalThunder @BlueLightSpecial well i mean it really just presents an opportunity to see if our deficiencies are personnel or coaching and this year will really expose the team or the coach hopefully neither occurs and everything works well
@EternalThunder @CLthunderfan Challenge Accepted
@EternalThunder @anonymous12345 @D-MC ive been laughing all morning at it
@BlueLightSpecial even if we win by 40 tonight the harden lovers and the cant let goers wont be ready to move. Dwelling, its just what sad people do
@D-MC of course
@EternalThunder @Lost Ones that makes more sense cause i have no problem with durant our small and soft forward taking fadeaways from wherever he deems necessary
@EternalThunder @yarkmu @fireBrooks @kdub too mean...just too mean.
@EternalThunder @Lost Ones im confused are you talking about durant now?
@kennygee90 @EternalThunder @Lost Ones @Lambchop ummm no im pretty sure even with learning a new system you still prepare for your games or mike brown is the dumbest coach of all time
@EternalThunder @Lost Ones to earn his money he needs to be at like 15 9 and 3
@Lambchop prolly a lil bit
@Lambchop is your child typing for you or are you having a stroke?
@ou_sas @chifro63 i can already see my own number im at 47
@HerseyHawkins @dream catcher if they dont play at all in this stretch they wont this year without some injuries occurring to force them into the rotation
@Skyline @dream catcher yeah they played us really well last year im more afraid of them than the lakers just because of matchups
@Jooseppi @dream catcher well thabeet great not like normal great
@chifro63 get likes is really all i can tell so far
@Jooseppi @dream catcher whoa that was thabeets great game slow down now
@ElMexiThunder does it really matter what slang tv personalities use ?why do we care?
@Lambchop kobe still remembers the release of the original star wars movies (not the first one )
@Lambchop go check a laker thread and get back to us
@Bryson @EternalThunder we could always start a sign scalabrine campaign to lift spirits
@EternalThunder its been that kinda morning
@Sigmund @kdub whyd you have to go and do that i was just about to win the other argument!!
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @justin_mia @Bryson depends on when we draft and how the college season goes but i mean tyler zeller could fall or nerlens noel you just dont know yet
@kdub MVP!! MVP!!
@ElMexiThunder explains why they looked so funny and yeah i agree i just really think we need his shot this year
@kdub @ElMexiThunder Allen Iverson won an MVP thank you for making our point
what happened to all that progress ibaka showed in the preseason he just seemed flat last night his shots didnt even look good
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @justin_mia @Bryson i think we draft a big with the toronto pick keep perk around another yr while they develop then hes gone
@kdub @FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies if by truth you mean ignorant gibberish sure...its okay to be wrong i was ONE time
@justin_mia @Bryson depends on the offer im sure
@kdub stop with that already durant and westbrook 2 top ten players > durant and harden 2 top 20 players
@Jooseppi the 9 man rotation we used wasnt very good so hopefully that changes
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @Jooseppi @wannabeGM @justin_mia and makes more sense since they already signed asik to a big contract
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @Jooseppi @wannabeGM @justin_mia david west is a FA as well
@wannabeGM @FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @Jooseppi @justin_mia he will decline them again too
@wannabeGM @justin_mia ok since we are talking about him when you guys see big als face does anyone else picture his voice sounding like chef from southpark?
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @Jooseppi there arent many good options
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @justin_mia @thunderstruck87 @wannabeGM wouldnt have to he fills 2 needs so we can amnesty perk in the offseason
@FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @justin_mia @thunderstruck87 @wannabeGM no that ones a keep but id give both the other first rounds for him if hed resign
@justin_mia @FreeFezzyFel/IHateBrookies @thunderstruck87 @wannabeGM i think you make sure you can resign him before you make the deal it happens all the time
@thunderstruck87 @justin_mia @wannabeGM si has 9 guys listed as pf or c in the top 20
@wannabeGM obviously not but they arent going to resign him and may want the picks and i still think presti has some kind of skill at getting the better of trades
@wannabeGM i dont get it...
@wannabeGM yeah maybe we can offer houston martin lamb 2 first and a 2nd in a trade?
@thunderstruck87 ive said before and i hope no body gets mad at me for repeating it but Al Jefferson is on an expiring deal and they need guards and trade machine lets you swap him for martin straight up..but i cant think of any others that will be available
@wannabeGM Never, the heart wants what the heart wants!
@BlueLightSpecial i see your comparison but they did offer to go into the luxury tax for harden they just wouldnt go as far as he wanted so i look at that as a positive but yeah i miss the beard now my beard just feels out of place and awkward
@wannabeGM until PJ3 gets in and takes over!!!
@thunderstruck87 @BlueLightSpecial well played sir
@thunderstruck87 @BlueLightSpecial ever been on a first date ? lol
@BlueLightSpecial stop blaming clay bennett anyway without him you wouldnt have a team to cheer for
I look at it like this (this is all down the line) : if lamb can become the player everyone thinks he can then he will start because he's supposed to turn into a good defender as well as scorer. Jones i cant figure out long term what we do with him other than back up KD and Ibaka and i think hes too good for that to be his only role.
so ultimately who becomes more important Lamb or Jones ?
@Sigmund if that happens then they will never play at their highest level at the same time so while i understand what you are saying i just dont know if thats the best plan
@Lost Ones the whole process seems really slow though when your watching it. its really strange...in a good way i guess
@Lost Ones did he fake anyone else out too? or was i the only one jumping up at home because i even bit on his pump fakes?
@okcjim i will say i agree that i was pleasantly surprised by martins passing i wasnt expecting him to be able to do things like the lob to westbrook
@okcjim comon man break it up a little at least
@ou_sas i had some much harsher words for it but yes i pretended like it was rw and i went skip bayless on it
@ou_sas the commercial before was lebron wrong message sent
@Lost Ones simple enough thanks
@Lost Ones i dont think i understand how these points work? im new ....
@Lost Ones that would be an interesting idea we got the spot i say go for it sign him to a six week contract like they do the d leaguers and if it doesnt work let him leave
@Lost Ones isnt he locked up on dallas now?
watched lilliards first game kid can play but i will love seeing some russ redemption on him
i like this thread better already
@Bsooreal @thunder_mike @Lost Ones @Zach99 it sounds so lanky it will just be elbows everywhere
1 year, 8 months ago on OKC falters late in San Antonio, 86-84
@Lost Ones @TheIceIsFake ............. lol
@Lost Ones @TheIceIsFake please continue....... dont worry ill wait.......
@TheIceIsFake van gundy would get slaughtered here he wouldnt fit in at all with any of prestis image or public persona plans van gundy while i love him is kinda a dick and wouldnt go over well in oklahoma
@Its Raining 3's Fantastic Point!!! I hadnt even thought about that but it is totally true russ has trouble at the start of every season...well i feel better
@tygablood i know we did hire sebastion pruiti but i dont know in what role. his job for grantland was breaking down game film and showing areas teams needed improvement but we didnt have any film before tonight so i think maybe we will start to see his influence hopefully from here on out in our improvement but he does break down defensive film too and hes really good
@fireBrooks @tydude i was mad when we let him go in the first place
@tydude still wouldnt get fired
@Lost Ones @Zach99 but martin can at least be productive when hes on the court there was only like 3 times last night when i even thought perk was playing good defense
@Lost Ones @Zach99 for what no one is going to take perk ...no one wants him
@Lost Ones @Zach99 which part? utah has no 2 guards but gordon hayward (whos really a 3) and is looking to move al jefferson and his large expiring contract so trade martin for jeff move perk to the bench for the rare occasions a defensive big like him is needed then amnesty him this offseason
@Lost Ones @Zach99 they wouldnt theyd want martin
@Zach99 AL JEFFERSON!!!
@Bsooreal yeah our bench mob is now pretty sad looking we need somebody over there with some crazy
@BallSoHarden he will give him a little time to acclimate them to the league but brooks does play rookies he consistently plays the best players so just give him some time to get them ready wouldnt surprise me if we saw pj3 tonight ... wouldnt surprise me if we didnt either
@Legendary_Dork @Lost Ones i do too but i am a firm believer in pj3 and in the talent that is LambChop but we would have some growing pains at first relying on 2 rookies though for sure but wed be better long term
@Legendary_Dork @Lost Ones you can trade martin straight up for him and maybe a pick prolly dallas but utah needs a wing scorer too
@Legendary_Dork @Lost Ones ill say it again (we talked about it last night down below) al jefferson will be available this year
@Legendary_Dork @Lost Ones i like it!! classy ball!!
@Legendary_Dork @Lost Ones orton didnt suit up
@BallSoHarden absolutely not id rather have westbrook with one leg shooting every shot for our team than have jeremy lin even sitting on our bench
@Legendary_Dork ooo or maybe some deep breathing exercises
@Legendary_Dork that might be the solution instead of letting russ get pumped up before games scott brooks should make him stay in the locker room during warm ups and just do yoga
@Bsooreal @thunder_mike thats why i had kd at 4 and pj3 at the 3 pj3 doesnt have his all of his nba muscles yet (he already is a ridiculous athlete but cant bang down low yet)
close out line up should be westbrook martin pj3 durant and ibaka or if the other team has a kobe-like scorer then sub in thabo as needed for pj3 but by moving durant to the 4 he should be able to get open easier out at the top of the key where he likes to get the ball plus these guys leave enough offensive firepower out there to keep most teams honest
@Legendary_Dork id say most important thing is going to be getting pj3 comfortably into a lineup because im really expecting him and ibaka to help martin pick up most of the harden slack sure maynor will help but those 3 guys are the ones i expect to grow their games the way james did when jeff green left
@RRRWHATEVER i dont think its that hes not quick enough i think its that there isnt ever enough motion to get him free. we get real lethargic looking on offense standing around and watching various guys go iso. one of the things i was hoping would happen this summer is that westbrook would spend time with cp3 and figured out some court vision and passing tricks to help make everyone elses games come much easier and open the floor up more
@yarkmu and puppies too and nice pic long live ron swonson
@yarkmu dont worry im sure once kobe retires they will trade him over there for 2 low level picks and steve blake since thats how things go for the lakers
@dollarbillrussell @Stern @OBoy @DSYIII its says amnestying him later will be an easier option its really just about how much we can develop him and whether or not he can stay out of foul trouble
@yarkmu @ChilamBilam12 couldnt agree more
@ChilamBilam12 it actually wouldve cost the team closer to 10 after the luxury tax and we would lose options like the midlevel exception that could help make our team better down the line but yeah there just wasnt enough facial hair on the court tonight he will be missed
@yarkmu @EternalThunder i think that is probably a fair statement but i do think he puts the best players on the floor ...usually. tonight with our offense like it was we probably could have used more maynor and more pj3 though
@yarkmu @EternalThunder well i mean he has consistently put the best players on the floor. i just dont think its fair to say he doesnt play rookies. his history shows he will, he just expects them to prove themselves. as he should.
@supreme35 @OBoy Jones III what is it now?
@yarkmu @EternalThunder started westbrook as a rookie harden off the bench as a rookie ibaka played as a rookie and reggie obviously not by choice but played as a rookie
Can anyone please elaborate on the notion that brooks doesnt play rookies?
@OBoy Jones III @supreme35 yeah i dont like that either of those were right either
@kdub where did this notion that brooks wont play rookies come from?
@OBoy Jones III @tygablood @justin_mia @kdub if we had some scoring down low it would really open up the outside for kd and would allow more drop off opportunities for westbrook if he had someone with hands who could make finish
@tygablood @justin_mia @Stern @kdub we needed post scoring with or without harden
@tygablood @justin_mia @kdub because a good center is more valuable than a good wing
@tygablood @justin_mia @Stern @kdub yeah but we would be amnestying perk and having a replacement for him which was my argument against amnestying him for harden
@justin_mia @tygablood @kdub straight up it works on trade machine
@justin_mia @kdub @tygablood you can amnesty perk and trade martin for al jeff straight up and utah needs guards
@tygablood who is available? other than jefferson i mean
@OBoy Jones III @justin_mia it looks like there may be some personnel changes that will need to occur but some needed to occur before the harden trade anyway but we cant fill half our roster with guys who only play one side of the ball
@KoolKeith3000 i really think brooks will do that more when there isnt a dominant post presence like a duncan in the game so you may still get your wish
@OBoy Jones III my bad?
@OBoy Jones III i think once was more than enough but im sure they were doing it to make lin feel more at home
@kdub @EternalThunder money wont work
@yarkmu @neo12 @DSYIII @OkcBaby no that goes in the doppelganger thread down below
@neo12 @DSYIII @OkcBaby isnt that varejao's nickname?
@neo12 @supreme35 @dollarbillrussell @yarkmu check twitter he started before the final shot from parker
@OBoy Jones III @DSYIII he has good hands and a pretty good free throw shot i think hes got a real opportunity to grow with the guys and finally find a home in the league im definitely rooting for him but i think the jury is still out but he made some good plays tonight for sure
@Thunder S @DSYIII also with a proper offense we should be able to get valuable production out of maynor ibaka and even pj3 off the bench
@yarkmu @dollarbillrussell @neo12 #Skip Bayless
@dollarbillrussell @EternalThunder Yeah and thats where brooks need to improve especially with a shooter like martin now with proper spacing the drive and kick could be amazing with those guys
@neo12 @OkcBaby theres a reason for that
@Aren't @neo12 @Aren't its easier than loving you
@EternalThunder trade machine lets you swap him for martin straight up lol
so Al Jefferson is on an expiring deal.....
@EternalThunder i get that but why did it feel like our guys were helping contest them?
@Lost Ones @Stern you mean they really only needed to
where was our floor spacing? how is it every time russ tried to drive i felt like he was running into serge or perk or thabeet ?
@OBoy Jones III in all honesty i didnt expect much maybe a sighting but that didnt mean i was any less disappointed when he didnt get in
@Jooseppi thats cause our picks have been less talented and been more projects PJ not as much of a project as cole or reggie only two options to choose from
@Lost Ones @Jooseppi @Stern They Do? I thought they either were like oh brooks yeah hes ok or they were calling for his head i didnt know some people actively liked him
@Jooseppi 'KD played as a rook, Russ, james jeff hes played plenty of rooks
(I get that our team was at a different stage but comon) when they were needed and it looked like we couldve used some kinda spark in that second unit
ok where was pj3? the things he brings are some easy points, a good court vision, and he and maynor had good chemistry in the preseason ....Thabeet over PJ3??!?!? comon Scotty B
i thought we shouldve signed him instead of liggins any way
