@EternalThunder that's a stupid thing to say
@jameshardensbeard I love the Thunder. but I don't buy into hating the Heat. Aside from the that stupid parade/party thing the ORGANIZATION put on when the formed, they really have just been unfairly treated... I would never follow them, but if your going to hate any team, hate the Lakers lol
2 years, 1 month ago on Heat vs. Thunder: Game 1 Pregame Primer
@jameshardensbeard yeah, at least the Heat ARE legitimately better than everyone (in the EAST). And if i was watching the Thunder as an outsider I would say some of our celebrations (eg. Holster 3's) come across as pretty cocky too.
@jdstorm I would swap beard and thabo
@jameshardensbeard they are no where near as bad as the clippers
@jameshardensbeard @blueRAP I have no doubt he won't play like he did last finals, he will definitely have a few massive games in him this series, but so will KD, and they have no one to guard Westbrook.tbh i've felt pretty bad for LeBron I can't imagine how I would feel as a human if I had millions of people basically abusing me everyday of my life. So I'd actually like to see him play really well, but still have the Thunder win, preferably in 4
@jameshardensbeard @blueRAP the big games he's had have come against Paul Peirce, it will be much tougher against the D of KD, Thabo and the help D of Ibaka
Today's forecast, Heat and Thunder, resulting in an electric atmosphere

2 years, 3 months ago on A bigger role for Cole
Cole's statistics will be boosted by the fact when he's in, it's against the 3rd team of the opposition, that's not to say he's not got the potential, but I think the coaching staff know these players capabilities more than any of us, as they see them everyday at training, rather than the 5 min a night we see him on the floor. The great thing is we have the depth for the coaching staff be patient with Cole. And we need to be the same, patient, his time will come
2 years, 3 months ago on The Dirty Little Secret Of PER
On PER, it is a great tool have when assessing a player from an offensive standpoint, but like you said it's a tool not an absolute on who is the 'best' or ' Most Valuable' player. But you know what formula really interests me.... how 2k12 decides who is the MVP at the end of each season? Do they have sources from the NBA? Is it a complicated artwork of variables interwoven to give value to Value? Could we just plug statisics into it from the real season and get our MVP? Is that what actually happens and 'voters' aren't even real? CONSPIRACY!
I'm stoked to have Fisher on our team, he may be 'washed up' but the dude knows how to feed superstars and makes the right decision everytime down the floor. I think Harden/Fish combo on the floor will be great, and it would be interesting to see a Fish/Westbrook back-court

2 years, 4 months ago on Could anyone else wear Thunder blue in the second half?
@SammyThunderer Patty was getting 5 minutes a game and essentially told to run and shoot, their grip would be that he turned it over but that would be from trying to do too much in too little time. give him some royal jelly and he would be a great backup.
@crownroyal5 @okcjim and he will probably get offered more elsewhere
I honestly believe he would be Australian Linsanity if he had been in Lin's spot in NY, if you don't believe me, watch the last time Australia played the USA at the olympics

2 years, 5 months ago on KD closes the door on a Boston comeback as OKC wins 119-104
if you put this team around Dwight Howard, specifically Curry, I think it's a contender. Amnesty Biedrins, and next season they have roughly 20 mil in cap space if they don't extend Brown and Rush. I'm dreaming, but it would be a spectacular team. Defence is covered, Dwight has proven he can make any team a top 5 defensive team, and obviously the Warriors are offensively talented already. Dwight already went on a monologue about how he would like to play with Ellis and thinks he doesn't get the respect for his talent he deserves. (http://www.iamagm.com/news/2012/01/15/dwight.howard.says.he.would.love.play.monta.ellis) I'm not a massive fan of Ellis but I think having Dwight on the same floor as him would make Ellis way more efficient, for a variety of reasons.

@J on your Bs@OkcBaby more the extra effort a team like sacramento, who rarely get on tnt or espn, is going to give when they know the entire country is watching.
@OkcBaby no it shouldn't. Kings have talent, home court advantage and a national audience.

@hbelvoir@Thunder S http://espn.go.com/nba/dailydime/_/page/dime-120127-29/weekend-dime-views-professional-watchers
@hbelvoir@Thunder S "The biggest thing that stands out for me is their defense. I was totally impressed, especially with [Russell] Westbrook. In the past, without trying to be cruel, I've seen him defend more with his athleticism than his brain. He was just using his instincts. But it seemed like defensively OKC really knew what was coming last time I saw them. I don't think they've paid as much attention to the scouting report in the past, but that urgency was there [from Westbrook]
@hbelvoir@Thunder S that's the opposite of what his problem is... he's not too lazy, if anything he trys to hard, or misses an assignment because of a misread, which will come with a bit more experience
@Thunder S about a week ago, it's called 'around the league' or something similar.
@Thunder S and yet in ESPN's regular piece where they interview a few of the NBA scouts they are all raving about his D saying it's the best at his position, with the critique being he is sometimes over aggressive
everyone's freaking out, calm down everyone its the first quarter
@Jooseppi I get that it's ok to want to see our young big develop. but surely we've learnt to trust our coaching staff on rotation? clearly we were all pretty much wrong about Harden starting, how we undervalued Sef. Scott and these guys coach, train and live with this team, are professionals, and have taken a 20 win team to the top of the western conference in the space of three years, they are going to know when someone is ready to take on a bigger role, and if Cole isn't getting minutes, its because he's not ready.
our only real problem is ball movement between the three of them, imagine those three in a system set up by Pop or Rick Carsile
2 years, 5 months ago on So maybe we should re-think that whole ‘start Harden’ thing
i know basketball isn't played in a vacuum, but I don't think there is anyway the clipps go for 71% from 3 in the first half if Thabo is playing. and this is it, i was pro harden starting because i believed he was a decent defender, but I was talking to Matt Moore on twitter and he pointed out that harden defensive PPP is worse than Amare's... not good.
I'm glad Thabo starts and that our organisation values defence, and as long as Harden is getting close to 30min a night, it doesn't really matter. Also it helps that Thabo is shooting 48% from three now... he is basically young shane battier.
And watching the last few games, it's clear Harden is much more comfortable coming off the bench ala Ginobli, and bringing that spark and scoring to turn games to our advantage.

2 years, 5 months ago on TGR 67: Harden's Home Cookin'
@ThunderWins@shiki@SammyThunderer@The_Beard_Knows@Daniel Hawaii our interior D matches up well with Denver, with Ibaka/Perk/Collison/KD we can matchup with whatever they throw at us, make them have to hit tough shots to win. I don't worry too much about denver in a 7 game series. It's teams that can defend us constisently... aka Dallas, LA that i worry about
Vince Carter should be on this list for sure. Feels like every game we play him he shoots about 80%

I think the boys wanted to be higher in Hollingers Power rankings tomorrow
@courtsense to be fair, he is there only good player, or beast mode capable player
that post is a couple minutes late... hitting 'enter' apparently doest post lol
It'll be cool when KD's vision in the post improves, perk set a great screen to open up harden on the three if KD saw it, doesn't matter coz he still scored which is cool, but it would've been a great play by all three
I sincerely hope we can keep this entire team together for the next 3-4yrs. I honestly believe we will extend Ibaka and Harden, the only player i'm worried about losing is Eric because i think if he hits RFA another team will offer him more than we can afford.

@Daniel Hawaii@f5alcon@D@nny@nny *not
2 years, 6 months ago on Why the structure of Westbrook’s deal is important
@Daniel Hawaii@f5alcon@D@nny@nny didn't LeBron and Wade take less? I know it's quite restructuring, but still.
@D@nny yes, contracts can be negotiated down. Marketing endorsements are obviously legal
I think if it comes to losing serge or harden, and KD believes he needs both to win a championship, there is every chance KD would in fact take the 25%. Why? Because it makes sense basketball wise (pretty much the only thing KD cares about) but also $ wise as the endorsement opportunities that would come from winning say, 2 titles, would easily compensate for that 3million a year lost from his salary.
Suck on it, David Stern
2 years, 6 months ago on Westbrook agrees to five-year, $80 million extension
@f5alcon@ThunderWins it's the only thing holding us back from being an absolute power house, is giving our opponents extra possessions, we hold them to a good fg% but it's pointless doing so if they are just scoring on 2nd or 3rd possessions
2 years, 6 months ago on OKC loses to the league’s worst, 105-102 in Washington
@f5alcon i don't think changing the rotation is the answer, it needs to come down to coaching there is no excuse for the way those two rebound, especially Ibaka with his strength and athleticism
same goes for serge
Can anyone tell me why Perk is such a terrible rebounder? our starting front court isn't even averaging 12 rebounds a game between them.
I didn't even bother keeping tabs on this game, then i get a txt from my girlfriends brother who happens to be a wizards fan. it took a little while to sink in, then the reaction... what-the-hell!?
@courtsense i would much rather someone who is a legitimate scoring threat for everywhere and the floor and is still a very good passer, or at the very least, has a great attitude. Than a rondo/rubio for this squad, as what makes us dangerous is that we have at least two guys on the floor at all times who are top tier offensive threats. I admit, i'm a bit of a curry fan boy, but isn't that what Curry is? a future 50-40-90 guy who also dishes? he has 6 assists per game career average but with Durant and Harden that would bounce to at least 8.I dunno about you but having the sort of efficiency and bball iq that Harden and Curry would bring around Durant sounds pretty appealing to me.Obviously i'd prefer to just see all of them stay. but if we had to do one or the other. this is where i'd look.
2 years, 6 months ago on On Westbrook’s extension: ‘Both sides are dug in right now’
@Stringer Bell@dantheman i stress interior defense, curry gets steals and is quick and long enough to be passable at the point.
@marcofromdenton yeah i only started posting yesterday, don't know why , i've been on here everyday for well over a year.
if our owners can afford to.
@RRRWHOAAAA@dantheman right now, arguably, yes he is, but over the next 5 years, no way
@RRRWHOAAAA not ellis, he has been a franchise player, where have the Warriors been with him?
@dantheman I disagree, winning championships is about defense, in particular protecting the paint, i wouldn't really want give up what is potentially the best defensive front court in the league. What would you think of a trading Westbrook for say, steph curry? and sign him to a 14m extension immediately?
Hypothetical: If we can't get an extension done, and it's either, lose serge/harden or trade westbrook for a lower priced PG. Who do we go for?
@Lambchop I love when KD plays defense. /nottonight

@SammyThunderer i know we want to win, but i would prefer to see James learn to guard someone like ray allen, coz he'll need to when we need him down the stretch in playoff games
anyone on why Harden has seen only 11 minutes?
