HO-lee crap. This is Morrow’s efficiency ratings since KD went down with Russ on/off. Look at defense.

The Thunder are -2.7 with Waiters on and Morrow off this season, and +8.5 when they’re on the floor together.

@Mother Teresa @seth_22 @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 I guess I would rather the rule be less focused on did the defender stop in time and more focused on who initiated the contact...therefore less attempts at fooling the ref

@Mother Teresa @seth_22 @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 It would be difficult but I think it could be done easier than it is to try to figure out the block/charge. In fact its the reason they added the circle within the lane to prevent it from happening there. My thought is just to extend that. 


I play pickup ball a lot and rarely is a charge called...that's because no one is trying to run to a spot and stop. Sometimes an offensive player lowers his shoulders or pushes off and that should be a foul.


I think the notion that if the defender can stand still for a micro-second to get a foul disrupts the flow of the game. I think you can call an offensive foul if the offensive player unnecessarily draws contact (pushing off, elbowing or running over a player).

@Mother Teresa @seth_22 @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 I would prefer there not be an incentive for the defense to bait the offense to run into them. Its not a major issue in my mind, but I think some adjustments to the block charge calls could help the flow of the game and protect players.

@Mother Teresa @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 Ginobli was playing to a gap in the rule not the intent of basketball. When he saw McGary he hopped forward and planted this feet to draw a foul, McGary wasn't nimble enough to change directions...smart play by Ginobli and the correct call by the ref but the rule could be changed a bit for the better of the game.

Royce's prediction of Dion declaring OKC as having the best back court in the NBA, reminded me of when the PJ Carlesimo started KD at the 2... It's safe to say OKC would have had the best back court in the NBA while obviously not having their players in their best positions.

@John Calipari & 'Dem Boys *Formerly Tvaddic* @seth_22 @John Calipari & 'Dem Boys *Formerly Tvaddic* its debatable which team is better. Surely, you can see where people are coming from thinking that the 2013 Thunder team and a hypothetically healthy team this year would be better than the current  Warriors team.

@CollisonDoppelganger @seth_22 The reason I came to DT is because I could not find any good local coverage of the NBA. Royce has grown a lot in terms of ability & access over the years but even then he was much better than what the Oklahoman was putting out.

@TempBoy Brandon @seth_22 The Ibaka situation from last year's playoffs comes to mind...but he really wasn't 100%.


The scenario I could see him coming back is if the Thunder start playing well, Ibaka comes back and then KD demands to play and the Thunder let him play to preserve the relationship.

KD's coming back this year...Thunder mgmt is just making sure GS beats the Pelicans a couple times before the end of the year. KD's return will be April 10th against Sacramento a week before the playoffs.

The Thunder should still push hard for the playoff spot...this is a huge opportunity for the young guys to get playoff experience. The team has all the pieces to win a championship (next year) they don't need another pick just a healthy roster next year.  In the meantime fight and scrap to whatever level of success the Thunder can achieve. I'm proud of how well the Thunder have played considering the adversity this year.
