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.

very unlikely to make roster but probably deserved this small exposure. might make it somewhere someday.

better theoretical, hopeful options. not sure what lamb could actually fetch. probably best to try to trade with a bad team.

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.

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.

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.

Adams and morrow encouraging. after that not much. Telfair horrendous raw plus minus. lamb and Jones quite bad too.

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.

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.

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.

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

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/
