@AIaska I blame Royce, he kept predicting 10 game winning streaks.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Friday Bolts – 4.3.15
@sammasaaron @DVoegeli The experience argument doesn't make much sense to me either. How would getting beat by 30 points 4 times in a row (hypothetically) help with player confidence in any conceivable way?
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Thunder need playoff experience more than a lottery pick
@f5alcon @Mr_F haha fair enough I guess.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on The Side Part: Keep Holding On
I love how certain everyone is that KD will/won't be fine.
Really bummed about this. More than anything I want KD to get this fully healthy before coming back, he was on his way to being an all-time great. I want to see him play 10 more years, even if it's not all in OKC. Hopefully he takes as much time as he needs with this.
@f5alcon Yes, with the cap jump so many teams will have space, at least a few will offer him the max.
@nomad @CollisonDoppelganger This. Just because the OKC staff didn't do the surgeries does not mean they didn't fuck it up in the rehab.
@Webster81 It could even be as simple as shifting weight from one leg to another. I think it's possible.
@CollisonDoppelganger I understand wanting to believe this, but we literally have no way to know at this point.
@Stephen Jackson is not about this spelling @Tronchaser Picked by or together with KD's agents.
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW That's pretty much all anyone has right now.
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW I'm gonna listen at lunch. I've listened to the Boiled Leather (very good) and Podcast of I&F (good but sometimes silly), both worth it.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thursday Bolts – 3.26.15
@L0rv @Mr_F @Jabb0310 @sammasaaron @King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW I hope they stick with 7 seasons but then do a spin off (the Hedge Knight would be awesome).
@Jabb0310 @sammasaaron @King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Two seasons after this upcoming one, right (so 7 seasons total)? I'm totally okay with that, there's plenty to trim from AFFC/ADWD. And it looks like they are going to severely cut the ironborn story from the show.
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW If that's not Ramsey, it's someone who knows him very, very well (Theon). I think it's just Ramsay, but mixing lies with truth.
@Lost Ones(#blackpride) @smallhandedthunder @sammasaaron I think Royce has tried to be slightly more "journalistic" in tone since joining ESPN, but it's nothing radical. The only complaint I'd have about the content is Royce himself doesn't produce as much original content for this site as he used to.
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @L0rv I'm really torn on this now. I still don't want to believe it, but you make a lot of good points. And I REALLY want to see Tyrion riding over King's Landing on a dragon, so there's that.
@sammasaaron @L0rv @Mr_F This is only slightly related, but did anyone else feel like GRRM almost became a parody of himself in books 4 and 5? Another hidden Targ, another death-not-a-death, and another 65 endless feasts? Or was that just me?
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @L0rv But then Tywin is essentially a brilliant mastermind with no flaws, instead of having one major irrational flaw that leads to his downfall. And the theory definitely makes logical sense, but I still think it undercuts the emotional impact of Tyrion's story, if that makes sense.
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @L0rv Also GRRM has already used false/fake identities/parentages way too much in the series, so I think I just want it not to be true.
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @L0rv That's interesting, but I still feel like it significantly undercuts Tyrion's story, especially if Tywin knew he wasn't the father.
@sammasaaron @L0rv I think Tyrion was Tywin's son. Otherwise it undercuts the whole point that Tywin only had one child that really could run the family like he did, but Tywin never gave him a chance because he's a dwarf.
@sammasaaron @King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW A friend got me book 1 of the Dark Tower for Christmas, need to get into it.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Week in Review: Groundhog Day
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW I liked the ending, it was getting there that sucked.
@ Luke @Mr_F @sammasaaron @The Dream Is Free You stopped at about the right time. Books 7-10 are the worst, and then it picks back up.
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW I have very mixed feelings on wheel of time. It's one of the first series I ever read, and it has some great moments. But I can't in good conscience recommend it to anyone because it's so long/tedious in spots.
@sammasaaron @Mr_F @The Dream Is Free And Tolkien finished LOTR before publishing anything, at least.
@sammasaaron @The Dream Is Free I've got a theory that fantasy authors that are good/great at worldbuilding (Martin and Robert Jordan specifically) end up getting really interested in the worlds they create and lose sight of the overall story. That and the lack of editorial control/pressure to get books out once famous is a miserable combination.
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW I'd be shocked if we get it before 2017, and I feel like that's optimistic...
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Wait, you think it will be out within a year? Oh my sweet summer child.
@ThabeetsGoldSpot It's hilarious/sad that the #1 and #2 seeds from the East would play in the second round.
4 weeks ago on Monday Bolts – 3.23.15
Lovecraft is awesome, just got a board game based on his stuff. American Gods is very good, but not my favorite. Probably Anansi Boys or Neverwhere.
1 month ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Long live Kevin Durant
The Name of the Wind, right in line with nerd/fantasy shit. Also anything by Neil Gaiman.
@_justin So does that mean he's really coming back tonight, or in 4-6 weeks?
1 month, 1 week ago on Down To Dunk: Westbrook’s MVP chances?
@Dion Sucks at Basketball *Formerly Tvaddic* @_justin And if he wanted to play in the game, it's not like Presti or Brooks would tell him he can't.
@Dion Sucks at Basketball *Formerly Tvaddic* I love salty KD.

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Down To Dunk: Who’s the Thunder’s shooting guard?
@meanstreetsofokc I think it makes sense if you add a comma after "like." Edit: I think adding punctuation is fine, but otherwise wouldn't change quotes much/at all.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Westbrook (likely) back Wednesday, Durant maybe in a week
@Mother Teresa @propsizzle @Pillendreher Yeah the general idea is that the offer is good enough to satisfy them and he wants to stay in OKC. I seriously doubt they'll do that without at least checking other offers though.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on HammBag – Post-trade deadline edition
@El Prez I think Memphis would largely dictate the pace and make GSW play big. But I think the Warriors would make just enough plays, and with Bogut (if healthy) I think they have enough size to mach Memphis. I'd give a very slight edge to GSW with homecourt.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Bolts – 2.24.15
@ Luke Honestly if you just avoid Sharp and can read the tone (knowing what's silly and what's serious), it's a pretty great site.
@ou_sas I would, but I didn't think the article said anything interesting or new. The best part was linking to the Russy Stardust t-shirt.

@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @Mr_F For once I agree with you. ;)
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Trade Day Breakdown: Wait, what?
Can't we just agree that Reggie wanted something the Thunder could never give him, and leave it at that? Yes he reacted poorly to the situation this year, but he's freaking 24 years old and probably felt like his life-long dream was on the line while he was getting yanked around. I'm glad he got what he wanted, but even more glad that the Thunder got something out of him.
@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @ Luke But the market for PGs is also saturated. $12/year seems fair to me, more than that is probably an overpay.
@ Luke @Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) I don't think it's fair to compare current contracts to Lawson etc. since the cap is about to jump.
@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @ Luke What's interesting to me is will Reggie take 4/48 if he's the starting PG?
@El Prez @Mr_F I get that, it just seems like Reggie might've overshared here. Don't want to start on the wrong foot if you just left a bad situation.
@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) @Mr_F He's still on the team though. Just doesn't seem very smart of Reggie to start off this way. And I'm saying this wanting him to do well there.
