Exactly what my point was about taking the decision out of brooks hands, just don't see it happening.
1 year, 9 months ago on Should the Thunder amnesty Kendrick Perkins?
Exactly my point, why, if he's such a great low post defender could he not handle asik? I realize most all of that was on the pnr but perk is making a living on the reputation that he's a great defender.
Agree that he isn't going anywhere, and also agree that on most teams an amnesty doesn't make sense. However, we have seen first hand that at times presty has to force brooks hand on his stubbornness for the overall improvement of the team. As in trading uncle jeff. So an amnesty would effectively force brooks to adjust the philosophy and/or groom a replacement for perk. Also, to say the nba is a changed game and that perk has little use, 3 of the 4 teams likely in the conference finals have Tim Duncan, Marc gasol and zbo, hibbert and David west. Perk's supposed skill set should theoretically have value if he could perform. He SHOULD have been an asset against gasol. And give me a good excuse he had no role in the houston series? Is boxing out asik and defending him on the pnr out of his ability?
Don't really want to dwell on this because what's done is done and its in the past, however in hindsight the easier player to replace would have 100% been ibaka and/or perk. If they had signed harden to max and traded ibaka then amnestied perk they could use a pick from the ibaka trade and cheap free agents to fill the void. Is everyone really assuming cole is that much worse than perk? Is that even possible? Just saying I'd like the thunders chances of being something truly special for the remainder of their contracts with a core of rw, kd, and the beard moreso than with ibaka. Think people confuse ibaka's "uniqueness" being a 6'11" shot blocker with a nice shooting stroke with him being a special player. The beard is by all accounts a "special" player. You don't give that up.

Pat Beverley had 5 when he was in college at arkansas

Thunder fan in nw arkansas, been watching Ronnie since he was in high school. Good defender, huge for a guard, not a great shooter because his form is bad. He moves really well without the ball and is an underrated passer. High bb iq.

So long home court advantage. Nice while it lasted.

Do dirks lips not cover his grill? Or are they just fatigued from all the lip service he pays the refs
Pretty sure an angel gets its wings every time brooks uses a cliche.
@Phi Gamma Body Slamma
You missed a few major tragedies. You need to look into making pics of major tragedies in history and photoshop brooks pics into the backgrounds.
So many guys with empty minutes on this team. Fish, perk, sometimes sef and collison. One guy "intangibles" guy with heavy minutes ok, but 4?
...or Jackson...or my jr high girls basketball coach...maybe even my dog.
I was just looking at some of the metric stats this year. Westbrooks assists per 40 is the lowest he's ever had while all our role players are seeing their lowest usg rates and pts per 40. Someone brought up all the more veteran players the spurs tend to sign as role players but I'm not sure anyone will ever want to come to okc knowing they will never get the ball and will rarely be setup for good looks. Not to mention breaking into our rotation set in stone.

Anybody else see cole's per lately? 19.4 at 14 and 11 per 40. I realize it's mostly been garbage time but it caught me off guard seeing it.
Doesn't seem like anybody else is mentioning that and I agree 100%. I understand westbrooks offense kept us in it to an extent but every time they got close he would take an ill advised 3 or terrible leaning jumper with 20 left on the shot clock. Then Danny green would make a play to keep us at arms length. Westbrook used to be my favorite player on this team but he needs someone to tell him when he makes a mistake. Not sure he has that now.
That's my point are we talking about this years pao or old pao

I did notice just seems like the guys are a little intimidated. Doubling every time in the post already?
Seems like we're giving them the respect of the old lakers. This laker team doesn't deserve it.
Love the way nazr is playing Bynum
@mjokc88 With free throws?

Really? Best shot d all night
Ibaka playing like poor mans d howard tonight
Kinda reminds me of pre trade thunder
@Air Bud id take it 10/10 times
Here comes....."the play"...
Cardiac thunder strike again
Where did those hands by serge come from
@Aren't That's what happens with a skeleton defense
I can't blame Ibaka for not d rebounding when the perimeter players just let their man by so serge is expected to contest every shot and rebound.
So the thunder now need all big 3 to be on to win a home game against a depleted Denver team? Not good.
Like the grades

I'm a huge rw fan and think he can fit in with this team with a few adjustments like playing him next to maynor or another pg more. Think it'd be good for his career to take the ball out of his hands and not ask him to make all the decisions. @courtsense

No easy buckets due to nobody looking to pass. Too much 1on1. I know the thunder rarely blow it up in the assist column but tonight was pitiful. Westbrook almost looks to have regressed as a pg this year to me sorry to say.
