This is hardly news, but you gotta love KD's attitude toward the Lakers and the rest of the league. Though I would obviously have preferred the Lakers not to have picked up Howard and Nash, I actually like the fact that the Thunder aren't considered the favorite in the West this year. This team plays well with a chip on its shoulder and something to prove. If the Lakers hadn't stepped up, going into the season, the Thunder would have been expected to get to the Finals, where they'd see if they could take the next step. I prefer being a (slight) underdog.

I do like anger that's both public and clandestine, as well as the image of the semifinals wandering a field near the stadium.

@novelisticbee0 Good. We can go back to freaking out about Dwight Howard.

@Legendary_Dork You don't move as quick as Russ was moving to the locker room if the injury is very bad.

They've finally figured out how to make Craig Sager dress like a normal human being: give him a uniform!

Can we please get a Russ update before this telecast ends?
@duhsweetness U.S. History, long, long ago. It went well, but ultimately wasn't very important, as history PhD programs don't usually care much about the GRE subject score (I got into, and completed, my first choice program, but I doubt my GRE subject score had anything to do with it). The GRE subject test in history is arguably closer to a round of Jeopardy than it is to what one actually does as an historian.

@SmackDaddy This. I'm also an OU fan and I'd _so_ prefer an orange alt to yet another BFBS uni (that's _so_ early 2000s!). Teams that have black as a color (White Sox, Spurs, Raiders) should have black unis. Others...not so much.

As a former Raiders fan, I appreciate Brooks's Fred Biletnikoff reference. Could we try a little stickum on Serge's hands next season? ;-)

One nice thing about making it to the finals: we only have four months off between the end of this season and the start of the next one!

After we fell down 2-0 to the Spurs, I entirely lost hope. Then I learned to NEVER entirely lose hope with this team.
Let's win this one and bring the series back to OKC!

Too much reactive negativity on the board tonite. Win or lose, this team deserves more respect...especially from its fans!
We can win this. Let's do it!
Dumb foul...but at least it was a foul.
Just got to get back to moving the rock around on offense.
Dumb shot for Thabo... esp. at the end of a quarter.
Totally agree with JVG that our offense has been too static in the 2nd quarter.
Nice ball mvt!
Beard is off
Reding seems random.
@Dw7 Ibaka blocked Wade's shot so hard that the "y" and the "a" switched places.

There will be runs. We just need to respond.
Good TO. Get the crowd out of their seats and lining up for another round of watery mojitos.
I think they should hire Popovich just to snarl at the quarter break interviewer.
hp ad sux...yet "Blister in the Sun" is one of the great songs of all time.
Collison is far too involved in this game! #skipsense
I don't think I'd be able to function in the World of Red Bull.
What a play by Nick!
Sloppy all around, including the refs.
I think JVG would rather officiate than broadcast.
Calm down, Russ...
@Tronchaser Ad still makes little sense.
Nice to see them come out like this!
For arguably the world's greatest basketball player, LeBron James is awfully thin-skinned!

LBJ throws passes so late after he jumps. Always surprises me. Must be tough to guard.
Love that Van Gundy feels he has to confirm that's a foul!
Perimeter D from Perk!
@ElMexiThunder I like that!
Rondo wouldn't score so much on that play! #skip
