preseason doesn't matter but there are signs thunder defense will miss thabo, miss perk and that Roberson and Adams still have lots of room for improvement and that brooks isn't on top of it, yet.

kong, I put a weird experimental book reference in the raptors game wrap up thread for u if interested.
8 hours, 46 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
very unlikely to make roster but probably deserved this small exposure. might make it somewhere someday.
8 hours, 50 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
better theoretical, hopeful options. not sure what lamb could actually fetch. probably best to try to trade with a bad team.
8 hours, 52 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
to date yes. don't want either in future but chance either improves. more likely in new spot. lamb "development" sure looks weak at this particular moment.
8 hours, 54 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
teams imo should identify 10 best and necessary lineups within minute limitations during season for 80% use then try to squeeze down to best 5 for nearly all of playoff minutes.
8 hours, 58 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
thunder and every team could do tons better on lineup choice. small sample performances can easily and quickly change but coach choices are not good and do not look good to begin with far too often.
9 hours ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
Adams and morrow encouraging. after that not much. Telfair horrendous raw plus minus. lamb and Jones quite bad too.
9 hours, 4 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
prea-season doesn't matter but this has got to be the thunder's worst bottom 3 in pts allowed, pt dif, fg% dif, fg%, fouls anfbottom 6 in 3pt fg% and assist. spurs as bad or worse though.

Certainly Brooks doesn't follow rpm. Little evidence Presti relies on it. He has never mentioned it to my knowledge and he has never hired anyone known to produce private runs of it.
9 hours, 29 minutes ago on Monday Bolts – 10.20.14
has Adams ever said who he admires, wants to emulate in nba?

@KetelOne @Crow mentioned as it might impact mcgary and durant's return times.

Perk "out 2 weeks". Already been 3.5.
ollie probably overrated but that is a lightly informed guess
2 days, 2 hours ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Eyebrows
he said shoo. maybe toe on line.
last presti extension I know about was July 22, 2010. Did Bennett give him a 5, 6 or 7 yr deal from that date? if the contract ends in late July (and it might not) and it ends in 2016 that might mean Durant and brooks making decisions before presti. much more likely presti extension before then but when? sometime this yr or next season? what the heck would everyone think is he tried to defer that decision? probably won't of course. but Scotty might decide before Durant. would that matter to kd?
Will Kings make big offer for Scotty in 2 yrs? I think they will. They might even next summer for some compensation, though unlikely to be enough. They are desperate to take step up or two. If in 2 yrs they are still not near playoffs would they offer Brooks 4-6 yrs at $5-6 mil per? They probably should consider it? Will Thunder match? I lean no.

he might not be back til late Jan. / early Feb. or later.
u forgot ice cream and diet ice tea
8-14 I think
that is a small almost rigged focus. rotations late in playoffs is biggest test and while he had some success overall their record in conf finals and beyond is nothing great.
Durant is back at near full strength by mid-Dec. or is it later? I vote later.
some are. I'd have to check rookie contract trade history though.

treasure amir Johnson. don't let mgt trade him or cheap out and not resign him.
question any love of Derozan if you seriously want to compete for a title.
if they were such super talent evaluators they should have moved some of the duds before everyone knew it
2 days, 9 hours ago on Preseason Thoughts: Raptors 109, Thunder 90
most of the time presti keeps duds too long.
ok I confused king for kong.
I thought you were the guy who submitted something to the Paris review. maybe I was thinking of someone else.
King, you are a writer, correct? I came across a weird, experimental book. I have just scanned it, am not endorsing it, but thought I'd mention it in case you were curious about it. http://marklint.com/Tripe.pdf
@DTVirgin your picks?
3 days, 3 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 10.17.14

@King of Carrot Flowers the third long arms may be coincidental but tru
@King of Carrot Flowers the third yes team and personal

@King of Carrot Flowers the third cuz he does well there

@ Luke @Crow why isnt his jersey retired yet?
3 days, 4 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 10.17.14
@ Luke @Jooseppi how is his roster suited for that though? not very.
A recent article showed rw to have one of the lowest rates of pass completion for pgs (or pseudo pgs) but one of the higher assist opportunity rates http://nyloncalculus.com/2014/09/01/isaiah-thomas-darren-collison-case-study-creativity-risk/
@gokudabest he wasnt, isnt going to play for 25K. it is an big sacrifice that shouldnt be that far that way
3 days, 5 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 10.17.14
@GREENE1148 @gokudabest debatable
All they really would have gambled on Chandler was some money.

3pts for dunks is way to correct the omitted words
3 days, 7 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 10.17.14
perk joke article was my first contract with ballerball. prob will avoid. bball hipster goof ain't my flava.
will he lead Utah back to playoffs? not in next 3 yrs. 5? maybe.
should be 3 pts for dunks. long 3 ptrs was probably a bad innovation. 3 pts is the way to semi-correct.
espn's truehoop network has no team blog currently in 6 markets and is probably #1 team blog in only 25-30% of markets it is in.
I dunno. if they lose kd and / or don't win title in 3-5 yrs, he may suddenly leave town someday. especially if Boston calls.
another recent article shows lamb drew 1/7th as many fouls per second of possession as kd.
