@GlendaGonzales Chris Paul was named Point God by some journalist last year. That's why I love Point Godzilla for Russ, so much more apt.

It was like a bad flashback when Lance Thomas played in the last few minutes against the Cavs.

@Mother Teresa @_justin @ Luke Best way Robes can help the team 3P% is to stop shooting them.
1 week, 1 day ago on Wednesday Bolts – 12.10.14
@_justin I can't see playing Robes at the 4, but you could test some Lamb/Robes minutes by staggering the rotations a bit. Bring in Lamb & Nick (or Perk) for Adams & KD first, then after a few minutes bring Reggie & Morrow in for Russ & Robes.

What if he signs a Chandler Parsons type contract? I think that makes it tough to keep him.

@Perk has a lot of value @Mr_F I did too, offensively at least. I think he's lost a step defensively, though.

I don't miss Thabo's pump-faking, mostly because Serge has picked up 85% of the dropoff.
@Legendary_Dork @eallen7 @King of Carrot Flowers the third I'm on board with a hybrid dino, but I hate the idea of tamed raptors.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
"One shot is not going to make him crawl into the hole and make him not compete the next night." That's like the complete opposite of Lamb. Sigh.
@Legendary_Dork If they closed on Serge's "open" jumper, he would've just pump faked twice before passing it back out.

Lol that you're fine with Presti offering $56 million but think Harden wasn't worth the max.
He's a role player. One of the league's best role players, but still a role player.
Oh I agree, I just think those GMs were brain dead too. Makes absolutely no sense to me.
Because he signed an extension with Houston before he actually hit RFA.
He was definitely worth the max, but it's still crazy to think the wizards and GSW turned down trade offers for him.
He was RFA, he'd have had no choice if we matched.
I didn't say good, I said better than he's been in a week, a week in which hes been horrid. But I also didn't realize he shot so poorly tonight, I only half paid attention in the second half
Really? I thought Reggie was better tonight than he's been in a week. At least he was getting to the rim.
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @f5alcon @KindaScottish From the looks of yesterday's game thread, lots of fans don't need help from Royce to be mad at Reggie. (Not that I agree btw.)
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Bolts – 11.19.14
@KindaScottish @Thunder_Blue 100% this. I don't particularly think Reggie has been great this year (he's been fine, and not the reason we've been losing games), but he has absolutely nothing to work with. Impossible to compare that to anything from last year.
@KindaScottish You could interpret this as a problem for Jackson or the offense more generally. Or probably both.
I remember looking forward to Thunder games, now I just dread having to watch this team again tomorrow.

Lamb, Ibaka, Reggie, doesn't matter who was shooting tonight it wasn't going in.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @propsizzle There's also the new TV money overshadowing everything. Contracts are about to get a lot bigger across the board.

@The McAdams Bros @_justin @Jooseppi @Silhou8 Single-game, individual +/- is too noisy to be meaningful. It's really as simple as that. Even 5-man unit +/- is pretty noisy when looking at a single game, you're not getting any good information by relying on that.
1 month ago on Wednesday Bolts – 11.12.14
@_justin @The McAdams Bros @Jooseppi @Silhou8 Justin do you see any value in season-long individual +/-? Or still prefer one of the adjusted ones?
@El Prez @sammasaaron I think it's hard to take anything from hockey, where a goalie can get in the groove and completely change a series. But that said, I think this team (healthy) can win any 7-game series w/o home court.

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Nets reality check wounded Thunder, 116-85
@mattchant Yeah I definitely understand not wanting to run Russ ragged, but I would have rather he played a few more minutes last night (winnable) even if it meant a whole lot less minutes tonight.

@_justin @ScottsSounds @L0rv @d21 This Thunder team doesn't necessarily have to be better than 2012-13 to win the title. Or put another way, what Lowe (hopefully) disagrees with is that "the current mix of players and head coach is simply not good enough to get over the hump."

Interesting that Nike has matching rights. I wonder how that works with the stock options and community center.
4 months ago on Report: Under Armour offers KD massive 10-year deal
@Juwanna @FallenOSIRIS 1. The final roster cuts haven't been made yet, so it's more comparable to breaking the wedding off a few weeks ahead. 2. The FIBA World Cup isn't comparable to a wedding anyway, it's a terrible analogy.
4 months, 1 week ago on Friday Bolts – 8.8.14
While I agree it could set a bad precedent, a front office would look pretty bad to not honor such a deal, and you can guarantee no agent would agree to such a deal again. You can only burn that bridge once.
4 months, 4 weeks ago on Gaming the system: The Josh Huestis situation
@d21 @Dominator Tell me if I'm wrong, but if the Cavs sign Wiggins first then his salary counts for matching, and they could keep Thompson? But they'd have to wait 30 days to trade Wiggins.

@sammasaaron @Mr_F @L0rv @Marko (Lacoste baby) It's hard for me to believe that that one-year difference was enough reason for Presti not to move down. I feel like there has to be something else.
@OBoy (LaFamilia) @sammasaaron @Mr_F @Perk-Punt And Jarrett just signed like a 10-day contract to end the season, right? But then was on the playoff roster so got the bonuses.
@Turf is always Greener @duhsweetness That or he was unable to move down, are the only two things I can come up with.
@Dominator Yes and yes.
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @Perk-Punt @OBoy (LaFamilia) I wasn't sure, trying to remember last summer's stupid controversy haha.
@L0rv @Marko (Lacoste baby) ....but you can make them restricted free agents, just after 3 years, right? Both of those tweets are stupid IMO.
@sammasaaron @Perk-Punt @OBoy (LaFamilia) Wasn't it Roberson that signed at 80%?
@ Luke Wow, Lowe goes in on Dwight and Howard as teammates a bit too talking about Bosh. "But there is an undercurrent around the league that Harden and Howard don’t represent the most appealing duo of teammates for any star who has lived within ultraserious professionalism."
5 months, 1 week ago on Tuesday Bolts – 7.15.14
@Air Bud @anonymous12345 @Mr_F Yeah he might've meant style of play included (both Harden and Dwight need lots of touches, so not much left for a 3rd star). It wasn't really clear to me.
@anonymous12345 @Mr_F @Air Bud Yeah that's true, forgot about that. I think "tantrum" is a little strong though (but that's being pedantic I guess).
I know Royce is already big time, but it's still cool to see him prominently quoted at Grantland.
