It's probably been two years since I posted - but I still read every day. I want in on the forecast contest (is it too late since one game has been played??? I mean, the season doesn't officially start until the Thunder take the floor...and we are just playing for bragging rights):
(Also TC - my birthday is August 28 - just like Uncle Jeff).
1 month, 1 week ago on Wednesday Bolts – 10.30.13
@Legendary_Dork Me too. It's ridiculous.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Thunder vs. Suns: Three things to care about
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars You appear to be arguing/defending something that isn't in question.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on TGR 88: 3 up, 3 down
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars @Lost Ones I'm guessing the "other" K-Mart is done. He was starting to look older last year. Maybe time has just caught up with him. Has he worked out for anyone?
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars I understand. Blake is learning a lot about the art of flopping from Chris Paul. I just expected something a lot worse from reading the comments first. In real time I'm wondering if he was just trying to avoid the elbow and not flopping at all.
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars I think there have been a lot worse flops than this. It might not even be a fake. Griffin has his face right up in Nene's grill and then sees an elbow flying at him. What would you do? You would snap your head back fast, which is what he did. Now...if he had fallen to the ground and grabbed his face like it had actually been hit, then that would have been an obvious flop (just like you see in soccer games all the time). In slow mo, I think this looks worse than it is. Just my opinion.
@justin_mia @Skyline @Lost Ones Yeah - Fortson really got to the point that it seemed like refs called a foul on him for any substantial contact - regardless of who initiated. It turned him from an important contributor to basically a liability. I loved the high rebound/high FT% Sonics.
1 year ago on Practice Report: Preaching patience for Lamb
@EatSleepThunder I'm sure we'd win the Draft Lottery, though!
1 year, 1 month ago on Kendrick Perkins (ankle) expected to play Sunday
@Prestiguacamole @Lost Ones Agreed. At that price tag, amnesty him and let Presti get to work with all the assets he acquired with the Harden trade to get us someone better.
1 year, 1 month ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Learning Lamb
@White_Flight He had one flop on a three last night that was called and the entire crowd groaned and then yelled at the refs. I'd like to say they'd catch on, but Ginobli (can we start calling him a poor-man's Harden yet?!? jk) still gets away with all his crappy flopping.
@OBoy Jones III @Old Man Game If anyone gets injured then call them back up from Tulsa for the next game. I also would like to see them get playing time in Tulsa if they are just going to sit on the bench in OKC.
I was at the Atlanta game last night. Even though he made Top 10 plays, I thought Cole still looked pretty clueless. I wish we could have gotten Asik in the trade (throw in Perkins and adjust others to make the salaries match). I know that was not possible because they just signed him and their is a required wait, but that dude had like 19 boards and would have been an upgrade at the 5 to offset the downgrade at the 2.
Beard was awesome. Kept throwing his arms out and getting fouled - was driving the Hawks fans nuts (I kind of like both teams, so I was conflicted). Really came on at the end to help put the game away. He was definitely the Alpha dog on the team.
@Barry Amenema Floor pie...mmmmmm!
1 year, 1 month ago on Sunday Bolts – Bye-bye Beard Edition
@Old Man Game @thelaughingwiseman Would be great to see the D-League really used like a minor league system. If you know Cole is 3rd string center last year, let him be starting center in the D and let him learn and improve. I remember Collison being a fould King in his rookie year and learning from it. Would have liked to see Cole do the same.
1 year, 1 month ago on Jazz 97, Thunder 81: Five quick thoughts
@Bryson @novelisticbee0 Me and Uncle Jeff....so I'll always miss him a little.
1 year, 2 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: 35 is 24
@cemitten @MisterJohnsonOKC Agreed. I'm pretty happy with this news!
1 year, 2 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Best versus The Best
@ou_sas @cleandoe Thank you, kind sir.
@novelisticbee0 Cool. Thanks,
Just saw a tweet from John Hollinger (and a RT from Marc Stein) about Sebastian Pruiti being hired as OKC video analyst. Is this old news?!?
