@justin_mia @OBoymuzik Ive seen Ibaka fly to the rim and do some incredible dunks. Hes already been mentioned as defensive player of the year, if only his offence was consistent
2 years, 4 months ago on Thursday Bolts – 7.12.12
@OBoymuzik Hes still so young, if he can work hard and improve parts of his game like Durant then he could be a serious force. He has the potential to develop into the best big man in the league if he works really hard
Ibaka is already a good defender and one of the best shot blockers so if he can add an offensive post game he could develop into quite a special player
An Orange alternate jersey would be awesome! Orange/White combinations. Go back to Rucker park, KD looks good in Orange

2 years, 5 months ago on Five thoughts on the Thunder’s draft pick
@TaoMaas Exactly! How can you be sued over a nickname? A nickname is given to you by someone else, so how can KD steal it if someone else started calling him it and it stuck. This dude probably gave himself the nickname "Durantula" in which case it is not a nickname since he gave it to himself.#OldGolddigger

Man what an incredible game! As a Detroit Lions fan I can really can relate to this feeling, to see YOUR team clinch something as important as the NBA Finals in front of a diehard, maximum capacity crowd. Its a great feeling and a moment some of us will never forget, and as good of a feeling as this is just remember this is only the beginning!

@tydude Im calling it! A postseason career high, 50 points!
Anybody else just feeling a breakout game from Durant tonight?
@Skyline It was originally the Ford center due to a naming rights deal, and they diddent have anything to do with the construction, but since it looked and seemed very similar to ford field I guess I assumed they built it. Still two of loudest venues in all of sports.
2 years, 5 months ago on Tuesday Bolts – 6.5.12
Why does it seem Ford builds the loudest buildings in sports? The Peake For NBA and Ford Field in the NFL have both been credited as being the loudest venue in their respective sports. The lions MNF game was ronkus, one of the loudest events ive ever been to. Tomorrow night in a closeout game at the Peake I expect it to be even louder. Let em know why your called LOUD CITY!
@f5alcon Yeah after two years of trashing us, giving us no respect this entire season, and saying we have no half court offense. Barkey is the first of many Thunder doubters to wake up and realize this is our time!
@f5alcon @Skyline That was awesome! one of my favorite shaq moments.....Barkley can take a long walk off a short dock.
@Dooey21 I like this
@anonymous12345 I respect the patience and still not counting out the spurs, but I would have not asked this question if I wasn't 100% confident our team will close it out tomorrow night at home. This will be the biggest game we have ever played, and when the spotlight is the brightest and is centered directly on Durant he will shine. think of it like this, they still haven't played the best complete game their capable of playing, game six seems like a good opportunity
@DustinMcWilliams @cleandoe I can agree with that! We matchup well against Boston. Ive played the celtics in 2K about a million times, and they rarely win.
@Thunderstruck_24 @MrButterNuts Prepare to get crucified Mr Westbrook, He who shall not be named has a bone to pick with you. If I were Westbrook I would go on there after the series and shut Bushy Bayless up once and for all.
Ok Thunder fans, I know were not there yet buuuut. Who would you rather face in the NBA Finals? Boston or Miami? I see great storylines for both matchups, Perk facing his old family/team, Westbrook vs Rondo, the comparisons between Pierce and Harden. Then there's Miami, our big 3 vs their big 3, The two best players on the planet going head to head for their first rings, the two most talented teams in the NBA. Who ever it is, we will have gone through the hardest road with the most adversity of any team remaining.
@Barry Amenema I agree, Parker and the spurs defiantly tried to come out aggressive and beat us at our own game in transition after Ibaka picked up 2 quick fouls two minutes into the game. They looked like they tried to take advantage of Ibaka on the bench, going into the paint which lead to very sloppy play and a ton of turnovers, which eventually got us going after we came out cold.
@Daniel Plainview Same here, Love em both so much! and both teams are soo similar, young teams on the rise, both have the loudest venues in their receptive sports, both have their superstars and are just looking to put it all together. I was at that chrismas eve game where the lions clinched the playoffs and that high five lap they took around the stadium was our moment equal to the OKC fans welcoming home the team at the airport
2 years, 5 months ago on The Thunder take Game 5, 108-103
@ThunderBelize @Skyline They were talking about this during the game last night, they still gave Miami the slight edge, but I just think that the combination of any two of our 5 best players (KD, Russ, Harden, Ibaka, Thabo) will end the fast break nicely every time.
@ThunderBelize @FF_pickups Agreed! All this flopping in the NBA nowadays is no good for the sport, there should be a foul called, or some type of fine/suspension for the floppers
@Skyline Their BOTH coach of the year material every year. I love brooks attitude too, Saying we are a defensive team first, because the turnovers our D causes fuel our fast break and when you take a look at our team there are 5 guys that can thrown down the Ally Oop when given the chance....Best transition team in the NBA??
@Daniel Plainview GO THUNDER!!!
For game six all I want is the 'best player on the planet' to go HAM. If Durant can put up big numbers in this closeout game he will go from "kid clutch" to "King Clutch" taking on "King Choke" in the Finals
@shiki Pop's got him chained to the bench, especially in Bonus situations
@DustinMcWilliams @FF_pickups @Daniel Plainview Durant is due too! Hes been great all series but has played just a little bit passive. If he comes out firing in game six he could put up 50
@tmoks Yeah Chuck has finally seen the light and admitted "its their time" He's calling it a wrap, and guess what SO AM I, THUNDER IN SIX. The Peake better be pumpin wensday for that closeout game!
@anonymous12345 That may have actually been the best thing that couldev happned, Thabo came in and played good D
If the Thunder win game 3 they will sweep the lakers, they lose game 3 theyll take the series in 5

2 years, 6 months ago on KD shows up big as OKC steals Game 2, 77-75
@shiki I have to say, I really don't see the Lakers surviving the sweep unless Kobe drops 50 on friday, Saturday is already penciled in as a W in my book
@Brob785 Yea I was surprised too! hes been all over the thunder since last year, saying we have no 1/2 court offense, and before yesterdays game saying "you live die by the jumpers" I guess its good thing Harden kick started the 1/2 court offense last night
I think Charles Barkley explained this best last night. The Lakers have their backs against the wall, game 3 is a 'must win' for them (since nobody has ever comeback down 3-0) They are going to play the game at 110% which plays right into the thunders hands with games 3 and 4 back to back. Even if the Lakers win Friday they will be gassed on Saturday and will probably lose, heading back to OKC down 3-1. If they lose Friday, everyone will smell the sweep Saturday.
I hope Game four proved to many of you that James should be part of our long term plan. Hes our X factor now, heading into this LA series. If I were an lakers fan I would be scared because the BEARD IS BACK #FearTheBeard& alsoI pity the fool that sleeps on Harden! http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/visuals/post/_/id/1640/bouncex3-an-nba-comic-on-james-harden

@dancassidy35 Even the Laker fans think a sweep is completely ridiculous
@jallenmorris Yeah, I always like observing how other coaches use players from other teams, Like Brooks at the all star game putting Westbrook on the wing with Nash at PG. It will be interesting to see how coach K uses Westbrook, KD & Harden this summer
@shorthorns4 Totally agree! He doesnt need to start but he deserves starter minutes and HE SHOULD be more involved late in games. Brooks can run some serious offense through him to get the ball to KD when we need to play 1/2 court offense.

@dancassidy35 @sammasaaron Parker is a joke, he got canned in Detroit for asking Rod Marinelli if he wished his daughter had married a better defensive coordinator. Might as well add Matt Millen to the list of those airheads.

KD should take his love for design and design a Thunder Orange alternate jersey, I think that would look tight.
2 years, 8 months ago on Tuesday Bolts - 3.6.12
@BRY BRY I wish we could have Nash at PG! Seeing Westbrook at SG and Nash at PG in the all star game was making me realize thats where he should be playing. If we had Nash (a pass first PG) then Westbrook could slide to SG and let him attack the basket as much as he wants without the outside pressure on him for assists. KD could see more touches and better opportunities for buckets off of Nash assists. Finally Harden could fit in as a true sixth man, and come in for nash when the old man gets tired.
2 years, 8 months ago on OKC closes the door on the Mavs, 95-91
@Lost Ones @sammasaaron @Old The problem is nobody is keeping Perk in check. Back in Boston there was always Doc or KG to hold him accountable. Doc & KG were always chirping at him, keeping him in the 'mindset', They were pretty hard on him coming up and he had to do alot of growing up to get minutes from doc. Brooks needs to pull him aside, or call him out in the filmroom and let him know: that's the kind of performance we expect from him every night.
@thunderkai I kinda like this, when the organization call out the refs on a blown call that could have changed the tide of the game. As a Detroit Lions and Tigers fan I wish I would have seen our organizations call out the refs for their HORRIBLE calls IE Armando Galaraga's IMPERFECT game, and the Calvin Johnson catch.
