1 day, 13 hours ago on Thunder vs Suns: Pregame Primer
I'd probably be up for that unless someone wows at an immediate need.
1 day, 18 hours ago on The Side Part: This is so much fun
would be more likely a long athletic pf type than a beefy guy
it is looking close
well before the draft. can after picking for someone I believe.
It is more likely he could get Portis but not a sure thing. Would he trade up for him? At what price? Fallback might be Lyles. Or trade out in some fashion.
Looked briefly at mock draft. Barely started learning guys names / stats but had this quick take on the guys in the Thunder's range to pick:
Assume Presti would like Booker but almost certainly would require a trade up a way and that is probably going to be hard or costly and is more likely to not happen than happen.
Presti seems to like guys with top tier high school recruiting ranks, big name college affiliations and high draft pick numbers, often when actual performance has been weaker than these things. Of the 10 most disappointing Thunder players in last 4 years they all had one or more of these Presti points of emphasis or over-emphasis. Dion has 2 of these tags for sure. The high school scouts pegged him as 23rd best hs recruit. They might have been closer to mark than college and pro personnel including Presti and Weaver. And Dion has not improved things much. One step forward in college, two steps back since.
5 days, 16 hours ago on Kevin Durant has foot procedure; re-evaluated in a week
I generally like the trade, especially compared to doing nothing. It is certainly more win now than previously. Still, the outcome is dependent on Brooks finding and using the right rotation.
I still value this playoffs, though it doesn't seem especially bright.
5 days, 17 hours ago on Kevin Durant has foot procedure; re-evaluated in a week
Waiters so far has been an awful acquisition. No way he should play more than 15 min / g, if any. But the real issue will be if he is reduced or eliminated before playoffs or Brooks waits til they are down a game or two in a playoff series. History says it will be the latter.
A team that valued continuity and consistency highly now has less than 2 months to reconstruct, with KD out for part and maybe in and out further.
RPM did not like the Thunder trade. But RPM is context sensitive and backward looking, not forward.
3 had RW & KD. 2 of those are still possible. With Adams or Collison.
4of 10 had Durant, 6 Westbrook. That is less than I would expected.
Of the 20 biggest minute lineups for season, 10 had very positive plus-minus and all of these had one or more of RJ, Perk and Roberson in them. Only three remain. So it is either stick with successful Roberson lineups or create something positive that did not exist before.
I made a mistake seeking fairness, truth, justice... but it was a mistake. All I can do is handle my own business and correct my mistake.
1 week, 4 days ago on 3-on-3: The final 29
I apologize to Mother Teresa and El Prez for my heat of moment, wrong guess of connection. Activity mocking me and bashing all of DT was / is annoying me but I jumped to wrong conclusion about a connection between things each of you did say on these subjects.
I won't be responding to you after tonight and suggest you refrain from any further attacks or counter attacks.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on The Side Part: Unicycle Renaissance
it looked removed but guess I was mislead by live fire glitches on that. I might wrong on MT identity. but maybe or maybe wrong to respond to attacks. probably a waste of time but this alt shit is far worse than caring about basketball facts on a site that is about basketball.
and your response may mean you are a part of the alt empire. or just a busybody who jumps into something he shouldn't.
refreshing shouldn't be a sin but yes I did
isoceles twice accused of a Westbrook trade propsal that was impossible ever.
nope just dont like cheap shots by coward
it appears that my responses to mother Teresa have been removed. if done by a moderator I request a statement why my responses were removed and the attack remains. if mother Teresa and alts and allies flagged them, that might be pretty gutless and fearful about being revealed.
So I responded to your attack or counter-attack MT.Please see my comments below and respond.
It could be someone else, but when I asked El Prez if he used alts after being attacked by one the other day, he didn't answer. You were there at the time.
When Isoceles attacked me awhile ago El Prez agreed with him immediately and never apologized when I showed that there was no proof to isoceles' false allegation that had been repeated several times.
El Prez is constantly poking fun at / mocking my use of stats.
Enough for me to have a question and to push back and seek to reveal at least isoceles and any other alts being used to try to trash me.
Crow never has used alts. Crow has been falsely maligned by alts. Mother Theresa sounded like someone who maligned me and also all of DT the other day. Mother Theresa may or may not be who I thought. But half still think it is.
The attack tonight increases the chances it is. If all there was between us was me accusing you of being an alt, I dont think you would launch a personal attack with specifics.
I probably can't prove who you are. And don't intend to fight someone else.
But since you asked who you sound like, are you El Prez and/or Isosceles?
So where is Lamb going to end up? I assume in east. But Portland should bid.
Kanter would make sense in Boston or NY.
Defense. Already down.
Cold potatoes can be alright if you got something to dip them in.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Bolts – 2.12.15
Turned out to be weak panic signing by Morey.
If Lamb does play well elsewhere, Presti, Weaver and Brooks should get heat. And Lamb. And maybe Durant. His team and all that.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on OKC makes final statement before the break, 105-89 over the Grizzlies
By offensive rating (which includes scoring efficiency and turnovers) the most efficient Thunder players (in the main rotation) and only ones above league average are in order Morrow Durant LAMB and Westbrook. The worst is Perk, followed by Waiters.
I wonder if someone is doing more, doing too much, but don't know so...
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Thunder vs Grizzlies: Pregame Primer
there are probably alts that talk to themself though.
if there are problems with dt commenters, at least 80% are probably with the folks with alts, who talk about everything but basketball most of the time.
if u say so. so many alts out there.
alt account? probably. and I have my guess
in this case, bleacher report.
isn't he? I won't repeat my rebuttal again.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Bolts – 2.11.15
Sustainable Sam probably down to 100 office hours before trade deadline. Go big.
Solid recap. Thunder fans are lucky to have them.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Durant lights the Nuggets as OKC keeps climbing, 124-114
rpm is affected to a degree by minutes played, but the rpm estimate is per 100 possession to give fair comparison across players.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Steven Adams out three weeks: Five big questions
stats syringe, facts/information, different labels
do u use alt accounts? are u currently?
huh? it is a legit topic and a substantial resource, worth mentioning, despite whatever enabling is perceived.
By these numbers Russ is not outlandishly inconsistent comparatively.
