@propsizzle @Dominator @d_m_free I used to think so...
Morrow and Lamb should probably be taking the Technical FTs before Reggie...
When everyone is fit.. I'd say Morrow, then Durant, then Russ (In that order) should take the Technicals (depending of course on who's on the court at the time).

@propsizzle @d_m_free The 2 technical free throws that REggie missed against the Nets was a killer...

@propsizzle @d_m_free Except for the Thunder are losing by about 4 on a nightly basis!

@L0rv @Dominator Kind of like the equivalent of telling everyone in a company they're going to get a bonus at the end of the year of $50k-$75k if they do so badly at their job the company misses every deadline and fails to reach any of it's financial goals.

@L0rv @Dominator Assuming they have 15 players on their roster, there is potentially $1.2 mil per player to be given out.
They have a number of players who are making under $1million this year, (Drew Gooden - $400,000). An additional year's salary or more at the end of the season would be pretty nice for them!

@L0rv @Dominator not really - it's just interesting. Kind of like an added incentive to be on a shitty team and suck night after night.

The minimum team salary, which is set at 90 percent of the salary cap, is $56.759 million for the 2014-15 season.
Lowest salaries in the NBA:
27. Milwaukee: $55,761,965
28. Phoenix $55,291,505
29. Detroit $53,150,925
30. Philadelphia $38,100,945
All four teams sit below the league defined Minimum salary cap.
I looked into what this means:
"The team salary must be at or above a defined percentage of the salary cap on the date of the team's last regular season game."
"Teams with a team salary below the minimum are surcharged for their shortfall, with the money distributed among the players on that team".
Pretty interesting - especially for Phili. Is the GM telling their players - if you do a good job tanking this season we'll split up $18+ million and hand it out to each of you?

Question - how do you post links to twitter so the image etc is displayed?
11 hours, 15 minutes ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@anonymous12345 @_justin @d21 (Censorship victim) Very much so. It annoys me when I think about it.
The current team with PJ3 in place of Lance Thomas would surely have one 1-2 more games.

@propsizzle @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third Feel free to use that little piece of trivia to annoy co-workers and family members
1 day, 11 hours ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
@King of Carrot Flowers the third that does seem like the logical answer... but now you know!
@propsizzle @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third As with most team sports... organized football began in England...
The Football Association (FA) was formed as the body to run the sport.
In the 19th Century, the sport of Rugby (from which American Football eventually developed from) was developed in an English public school in the town of "Rugby". The full name for Rugby is "Rugby Football".
For a time in the early 20th century both sports were routinely referred to as football (causing confusion).
The term "Soccer" was taken from the aSSOCiation and used as informal term to for "Association Football" so it could be differeniated from Rugby Football.
And that's your answer...
@propsizzle @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third I like that one... but no
@King of Carrot Flowers the third I guess I was thinking more along the lines of how/where/when did the term originate.....
@Kong Lambchop @Dominator lol that's a good question - I blame autocorrect on my phone for that one
Trivia... (without googling please).Where did the term "Soccer" originate?
@DVoegeli @King of Carrot Flowers the third Futbol is simply the Spanish word for football. It's an English sport from England.
@propsizzle @Dominator It helps a lot! Plus if you're really good you can use it to supplement your income.
@propsizzle Try betting.... that usually helps. Or playing fantasy soccer
That's how I do it with the NFL - otherwise I have no interest in who wins and the games are pretty boring. (The endless commercials probably don't help with that either!)
@propsizzle @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third LOL - now THAT is a good idea!!
They do do that to determine who will host the World Cup every four years... so the'yre trying
@propsizzle @Dominator @King of Carrot Flowers the third It's not a true aggregate... the "Away Goal" rule is used....
It's all an effort to avoid the amount of games that go to extra time and/or penalty shoot-out.
@propsizzle @King of Carrot Flowers the third Not in the Premiership. But in all the professional leagues below the Premier league they have a playoff to determine who gets promoted. (See the Championship, League One and League Two).

@propsizzle @King of Carrot Flowers the third They play too many games as it is... aggregate scores are only used in the knockout stages of european cup competitions up to the final.Adding a third game would screw up the schedules, result in increased travel and cause more moaning from managers/fans about the amount of games the players have to play.
@DVoegeli @SeinfeldOKC Al Eshbach - is that you?!
@SeinfeldOKC Soccer is actually bigger than you think in Oklahoma. A lot of people (Traber + Al on the radio for example) try to insist that nobody cares about it, but I've met so many people in OKC who watch games, know about the players and even play the sport regularly.
@King of Carrot Flowers the third That happened a few years ago
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @GREENE1148 [BLAME ADAMS FACTION] Brook's fault... clearly.
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Dominator @Chandler Bing. Also Lazar didn't play.. basically ever.
Thomas is currently starting and routinely playing 25 mins + a night.
We're also "approaching" must-win time with respect to making the playoffs this season
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Dominator @Chandler Bing. With the current injury situation it's probably a conversation worth having
@Perk has a lot of value @Dominator That's a stretch... Harrington was an undersized 3 point shooting 4 man.
Ibaka is a defensive minded power forward with a good jump shot who's been falling in love with the 3 point shot a little over the past few weeks
@Perk has a lot of value @Dominator Who?
@GREENE1148 [BLAME ADAMS FACTION] @GlendaGonzales @Dominator That should go down as a technical foul.
2 airballs and you're ejected.
@Perk has a lot of value @Dominator yeh but he's permanently injured
@Chandler Bing. @Dominator worse than Lance Thomas?
@GlendaGonzales If the shot doesn't hit the rim it should not count against his shooting percentage. It should go down as a turn over.
@W. Silva @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Chandler Bing. The Big German was probably better
Al Harrington has been released and is now a FA....
Is he just old and worse than ever now? I seem to remember he used to be able to shoot pretty well and could rebound
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Dominator He's a better scorer probably
Whatever happened to Daniel Orton? I think I'd rather have him on this roster than Thomas
@King of Carrot Flowers the third Exactly if we need a big man play Collison, Perk, Adams or Ibaka.If we need defense play Roberson
I'd rather have Ish on the floor than Thomas considering our current roster availability and need for scoring.
@d21 (Censorship victim)
I understand the need to stagger offense (scoring off the bench etc), but I've been saying this for a few games now (basically ever since Roberson came back).
The primary reason for Lance Thomas being in the line up was to provide some element of defense against wing players. Roberson can now do that.
With the current injury situation I'd be looking at:
Reggie, Roberson, Adams, Morrow, Ibaka
Collision and Perk backing up Ibaka and Adams respectively
Lamb backing up Morrow
Ish and Telfair providing back up at the guard spots
Thomas should really be the end of the bench guy and only play when there is foul trouble.
@PJ's LAMB! My guess is Lamb isn't in that rotation and McGary probably /possibly is.Either way a 10 man rotation is fine (probably be 9 for the playoffs.
Thomas probably will get cut some time after New Year - i'm still holding out hope for Ray Allen, but Brooks would over play him if he came probably

@Cray Allred Triple double in the first half
2 days, 11 hours ago on Monday Bolts – 11.24.14
@d21 Why does Lance Thomas continue to see more minutes than Lamb?
2 days, 23 hours ago on Thunder skid hits 6 games as OKC falls to Golden State
@propsizzle 2013 - we were playing the best basketball since moving to OKC that season. Close to historic offensive numbers.
Last year even with a healthy serge I don't think we necessarily beat the Spurs
5 days, 7 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 11.21.14
Would you consider this trade?
We'd then drop Lance Thomas and Ish Smith and then make this trade:
Russ / Foye / Adams / Serge / KD
Bench Rotation of Wroten / Morrow / Chandler / Collison / Arthur
PJIII, Roberson, Mcgary and Jerrett can play situationally.
6 days, 13 hours ago on Four straight the wrong way: Nuggets beat OKC, 107-100
Morrow is top (not really that suprisingly based on his skills, but perhaps a little based on his recent play).
He is 81st with a 40% rate
Serge is 116th with 36.8%
Collison is 123 with 35.7%
Perry Jones, Westbrook and Smith are tied 136 with 33%
Lamb is 165 with 32.4%
Telfair is 221 with 25.5%
