@King of Carrot Flowers the third oh wow - that is a long time!!
4 days, 3 hours ago on Tuesday Bolts – 12.16.14
@King of Carrot Flowers the third 50% of games?
at what point will Russ appear in the NBA scoring list?

@Jabb0310 @Dominator lol - it's a shame really.... big game against Portland.I certainly wouldn't rule out the Spurs winning anyway, but I'm really rooting for Portland to lose so the Thunder can catch them and get the #4 seed.
Paul Garcia: Spurs announce Duncan (rest), Manu Ginobili (back), Patty Mills (shoulder), Tony Parker (hamstring) & Tiago Splitter (calf) all out tonight Twitter @PaulGarciaPS - See more at: http://hoopshype.com/rumors.htm#sthash.7evOc3ah.dpuf

@dollarbillrussell I don't hate him. I respect that he gives his opinion and despite his random negativity he's not a total idiot when it comes to sport.
I can't stand... Pat Jones - random redneck who sounds like an idiot and can only discuss college football
Al - has no clue about anything and just goes from call to call
Bob Barry Jr - has no opinion about anything - basically an old guy reading through the sports section of the newspaper on air.
@dollarbillrussell lol - oh yes... I think generally there is small amount of truth behind most of his points and opinions... but ever since his fight with Pinto he's gone to super negativity with all Thunder opinions
@dollarbillrussell What we found out during the first part of the season (when Russ and KD were out)....
Roberson can't play at all
Collison can't shoot 3s
Ibaka is nothing but a role player and has gotten worse this year
Perry Jones can't be trusted
He said there was nothing positive to come out of the first part of the year
Anyone listening to Traber go on a Thunder rant right now?
@sammasaaron @Dominator Assuming both are signed we'd be at 14 with Collision and Perk not being resigned.
5 days, 1 hour ago on Monday Bolts – 12.15.14
Predicting the roster for 2015/16: (I'm going to assume they resign Reggie)Pg: 1. Russ 2.Reggie
Wings: 3. KD, 4. Lamb, 5. Morrow, 6. Roberson, 7. PJ3, 8. Jerret
Centers: 9. Adams, 10. Pleiss
PFs: 11. Ibaka, 12. Mcgary
Leaves 3 spots:
They'll have the draft pick.. that will take them to 13
Resign Collison for 1 more year?
Sign any of the D-League or Euro Stash guys? (Huestis, Abrienas, Christon).
My guess is they sign Huestis and one of Christon or Abrienas...
@OKC035 Morrow needs to play more of his minutes with KD and Russ on the floor... he shouldn't really play much when neither is on the court.
Last night I'd of preferred to see Roberson than Morrow on the court at garbage time practicing his 3s..

@_justin @Dominator He probably would... pretty good shot to win a title...
@King of Carrot Flowers the third Steven Adams could have 18 months learning under Perk then an additional 6-18 months learning under Garnett... not too bad!
@gokudabest @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third He's better than Perk at pretty much everything... especially scoring
@cybrook (formerly boli34) when did that happen??
As well as Perk is playing I'm still on the "sign Garnett" bandwagon... some sort of 3 team trade involving, Josh Smith to the Nets, Perk to the Pistons, Kirilenko to the Pistons and Garnett to the Thunder has been rumored.
If we have to throw in PJ3 too and can perhaps also get a 2nd round pick or something... I'd really like it
Over 42% chance of making the playoffs now... !
@KC_Thunder @Dominator They should hire traber as the color commentator...
5 days, 4 hours ago on Monday Bolts – 12.15.14
I've heard a few local commentators... how do you think Brian and Grant/Cage rank in the league?
Amongst the league's best?
Well above average?
Well below average?
amongst the league's worst?
@PNT They'd lose to avoid OKC - no doubt about it
@Lambaaaaaang Ideally he'd become the starting SG
1 week, 1 day ago on Friday Bolts – 12.12.14
@RobotLion @Dominator that's not what I said... just implied that PJ3 could be played some at PF with Serge at Center, in addition to the Serge/Adams - Serge/Nick - Adams/Nick - and Durant at PF line ups to offset the loss of Perkins.
Then cut Lance... start Wilson at SG. Play more small ball utilizing PJ3... can play that Nurkik 5 minutes a game when Adams gets into foul trouble.
Josh had a nice game for the blue the other day:
4 of 5 from 3, 7 of 9 shooting for 21 points in just 27 minutes... shooting 35.3% from 3 on the season though...
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @propsizzle There are a few solutions... my fav:
Keep Divisions and the structure of the East/West conferences.
Division winners are the top 3 seeds in the "East" playoffs and "West playoffs"... the next 10 teams by record are seeded 5-8 in the east and west (regardless of what conference they play in).
This keeps the scheduling as is... maintains the west and east champion and the division champ.
Example, as of right now: West 1,2,3 would be: GS, Memphis and Portland
East 1, 2, 3 would be: Toronto, Atlanta, Cleveland
Next 10 seeds would be: Houston, Clippers, Spurs, Wiz, Dallas, Chicago, Suns, Bucks, Kings, Pelicans. Those teams would be placed in the east or west alternatley based on their record.
@KC_Thunder Portland are so thin - 1-2 injures and they'll start dropping games... I would be suprsied if we don't catch them
@greatwhitebuffalo be careful - Royce will ban you for such comments
Up to a 11% chance of making the playoffs now - yay!
@f5alcon @Dominator @sammasaaron @SeinfeldOKC Twilight Zone??
Like turn off all the lights and play twilight zone on the big screens??? Interesting tactic - I guess that would make it difficult for the Cavs to score.... I like your thinking f5alcon!

@sammasaaron @SeinfeldOKC Marion starts, but Waiters typically gets more minutes at SG.
My guess is Russ starts on Irving, Roberson starts on Lebron, KD starts on Marion and helps Serge cover Love when he steps outside.
KD will guard Lebron in stretches but I doubt Brooks risks getting him into foul trouble. I'm sure he'll throw PJ onto Lebron for a 5 minutes or so and see how he gets on
Has anyone noticed the correlation to good-bad games when Russ gets 3 easy "inside-buckets" assists in the opening minutes as opposed to him taking contested shots or even driving to the rim right away?
It seems the opening few minutes of how involved he gets Steven, Serge, Roberson are indicative of how the game will unfold.
@okcjim I have a feeling we win for no particular reason
@Tvaddic @Dominator gotcha - i'll take a listen.
That guy is a little bitch though!
@Tvaddic Who's Windy?
@Mother Teresa having a "big-picture plan" and sticking to that plan is something he's pretty good at.
Certainly has excellent skills at talking for a long time without answering anything

@DanielLawler @Dominator @Wellington Nem I'm sure he will be game time descion so we both need to have someone lined up to go if he can't (pick up Harry Douglas as insurance)... I would guess he probably will play though
1 week, 3 days ago on Thunder Player Power Rankings: Looking up
@DanielLawler @Dominator @Wellington Nem Yeh - I'd probably agree.... although if they bring everyone back... Victor Cruz and Randle could eat into his value
@DanielLawler @Dominator @Wellington Nem I managed to trade Matt Ryan and Malcom Floyd for Jordy Nelson in like week 3 or 4.... Beckham Jr was a waiver wire add that worked out very well indeed.
@DanielLawler @Dominator @Wellington Nem Impressive... very impressive.
10 team league I presume?
In a 12 team league my receiving corps is pretty solid: Julio, Nelson, Beckham-Jr, and Jeffery. I have Mccoy at RB who has been mostly average... but Russell at QB has been very solid.
@DanielLawler @Dominator @Wellington Nem Impressive... so 1 PPR? or 0.5 ppr?
@Wellington Nem @Dominator Same to you Nem.... same to you...
@Wellington Nem @Dominator what scoring system? This seems unlikely....
Shout out to my FF team in the playoffs this week:
Opponent went crazy scoring 143.60 (standard Yahoo scoring) , good for the 3rd highest score of any team all season - Big Ben, Jonathan Steward, Bell and AJ Green scoring 27.9, 21.5, 41.50 and 28.4 respectively for his team.
I trailed by 56.58 with two players reaming going into MNF - according to Yahoo I had a 2.7% probability of winning.
Jordy Nelson and Julio Jones combine for 58.9 points. ( a combined 405 yards and 3 TDs) - I win by 2.32 points - BOOM!
Feel free to send congratulatory messages
@propsizzle @Dominator Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. Think of the revenue if they were going back and forth to Tulsa and not back and forth across the street
@L0rv @Dominator devastated......
