@_justin @ Luke @Tvaddic I think it would be heavily dependent on who plays the 3/5. Westbrook and Reggie are both minus defenders, IMO. Neutral at best.

@_justin @Tvaddic We could start the two of them and Roberson. That'd be interesting.

@OBoy (LaFamilia) I was so excited to play and then never checked my roster once. I don't deserve a second chance.

Actually, considering how poorly Lamb's shot the ball in preseason, Hamilton could be a big step up. Unfortunately, even having a ~36 percent wing shooter would be terrific right now.

@d21 I don't think he's much better than Lamb, but at this point, I'm all for it.

@Jooseppi Yeah. Trade seems unlikely at this point though. Real bummer. Dudley is the dream.

@The McAdams Bros @Sustainable Parameters @_justin @ Luke @SeinfeldOKC Are you seriously comparing Tony Parker to Tony Allen?

@The McAdams Bros No one's saying preseason means anything. But San Antonio just won the title and returns virtually the same roster. We're counting on 2-3 relatively unproven guys to be legitimate contributors. Big difference.

@Sustainable Parameters I actually think Lamb's going to be decent. So I'll say yes.

@_justin @ Luke @SeinfeldOKC Yeah, maybe. I dunno, I'm not totally sold on Thabo's shooting. 2012-13 was the only year he made them with any real volume. This year will be telling.

@_justin @ Luke @SeinfeldOKC Maybe I believe in Roberson too much, but I think Fisher might be the bigger loss between he and Thabo. Good offensively for most of the season and underrated defensively.

@_justin @ Luke @SeinfeldOKC I think this year's roster is stronger than last year's. Not saying I agree with many of the team's moves, especially the Harden trade. But most complaints I think have to be levied against ownership rather than management.

@Jooseppi @ Luke The one thing I could see is if Serge starts making threes at a high clip. Hard to ignore top-shelf defense and legitimate three-point shooting. He'd definitely deserve a spot anyways.

Think Serge as an All-Star is a pipe dream. Not being able to create offense at all kills him. He'd have a great shot in the East, but the West has too many bigs.

@Thunder_Blue Think he has a much better shot at DPOY than an All-Star appearance.

@DanielLawler He's going to be awful defensively. Maybe could be good on the other end if his face up game and jumper improve. He should be a rotation player, just likely not going to live up to his draft status

@AlexR44  @ Luke Still hard to say with him and Len. The other 4 are already legitimate rotation players.

The center crop from the '13 draft is looking pretty decent considering its reputation. Adams/Dieng/Gobert all look like they'll be good.

The "good regular season team" thing is almost as tired as "They may have better players, but we're a better team" that gets dropped after every playoff series OKC wins.

The one hope I have for Lamb is that he'll be better when he plays with Collison. His %UAST really spiked when Westbrook was out and he was sort of thrust into a playmaking role off the bench. Obviously a lot of his mid-range stuff was still unsustainable in the first few months, but we ran some nifty two-man stuff to get him easy looks that disappeared pretty quickly.

@_justin @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ Luke @Tvaddic Shot looks good. He just needs more playing time. Confidence guy. Would be awesome if Brooks didn't pull him for Fisher. Reggie's fault for not setting him up well.
