Thunder favored tonight... 3rd time this season.

@TheTwoHeadedMonster Thanks, these are the teams I am going to watch this season. Unless Portland completely melts down the Thunder's path to the playoff is simply to finish ahead of these teams. Most likely the same 8 will be in the playoffs this year unless one of these 3 edges out the Thunder. I think it is possible that 45 wins could be enough this year, but I think the goal should be 50 wins.

Is it possible some of these injuries are the result of the sponge they call a practice court?

@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @seth_22 he's a "shooter-guard" though
I'm all about winning a championship but right now I just crave watching KD & Russ play 3-4 times a week.
We used to complain about Brooks' unimaginative KD iso's at the end of the game, but Sunday we ended the game with a nice pass to a wide open shooter who chucked an 18 footer from 23 feet away from the bucket.
@_justin @PJ's LAMB! You would admit it is amazing that the Thunder is even in these games with the 29th ranked offense, correct?

@claeys @seth_22 What stinks is Russ had a legitimate chance before getting injured. But if the consolation is KD coming back from injury to shred the league and grabbing a consecutive MVP, I'd be cool with it.

At least KD is ahead on LeBron in the MVP race.
@Perk has a lot of value Did he really say that? That's incredible

The number 1 pick is a pipe dream too...we all know the Cavs will get that.
If Presti just told Reggie that he will offer him 1 million (annual) for each win accumulated before Russ & KD return, would that get us on a win-streak?

@claeys @seth_22 @sammasaaron The biggest reason this would not happen is the enormous pressure to spend up to the max allowed by the league. The owners would not go for it. Right now the 76ers can avoid spending much because they are "rebuilding" and their owners get to save some cash for a few years while loading up assets. The FA rookie route would take that strategy away...or atleast render it completely ineffective
@claeys @seth_22 @sammasaaron That would be interesting, definitely have to change the salary cap rules but I think that would be awesome. I think if each team had a max salary limit but no limit on individual players it would solve a lot of the issues we discussed (no incentive to tank, since you aren't jockeying for a higher pick).

@sammasaaron @seth_22 I think a cool way to do the draft is auction style where each team has the right to bid on selections with their draft points. Draft points are given in order of finish so the worst teams get the most. Where it gets interesting is you can trade draft points and carry them over to another year. Then at the NBA draft there is a bid for the #1 pick then the selection...and so on. I actually think this one...with some extra thought would be plausible.
@claeys @seth_22 @greatwhitebuffalo I think you'd have to go equally weighted odds for the non-playoff teams. That also covers those who had a nice season but passed up by someone who basically traded into the playoffs.
@claeys @f5alcon @seth_22 I would think only wins you have currently earned in the season. So I doubt there would be much movement early...and like you said below, panic at the trade deadline.
@claeys @seth_22 @greatwhitebuffalo It would..but be very entertaining. But yes a good team could get hosed out of the playoffs by a lesser team trading up. It would never work but if in place it would take all the incentive out of losing.
@claeys @seth_22 @greatwhitebuffalo There would certainly need to still be a trade deadline.
@claeys @seth_22 They would have to have enough assets to trade in order to convince a team to give them wins..and in their case they would weaken their team too much to do any damage once they are in.
@greatwhitebuffalo @seth_22 Its based on regular season...so you could trade Reggie for other pieces + wins (standings points) to help you make the playoffs or improve seeding.
Looking at the trade machine on ESPN, I came up with a brilliant (really stupid) way to stop tanking. Allow teams to trade wins/losses. For instance we trade Jeremy Lamb & a 2nd rounder to Atlanta for Kyle Korver and 3 wins.
Winning would be the incentive for any game even if you are rebuilding. It would probably actually need to be some sort of points system rather than changing the W/L record. But the playoff seeding would be based on total standings points and those who don't make the playoffs would just be in the lottery as usual.

announce that Kevin Martin passed away during the first quarter of
their game against the Knicks. He would go on to score 37.

@The Adams Family The Thunder are 3-10 with a top ten player (Reggie).
6 days, 5 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 11.21.14
@Perk has a lot of value @seth_22 I was listing names not ranking them asking if Maynor would be top ten. I see how it looked like a ranking with russ then reggie...
6 days, 6 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 11.21.14
@f5alcon @seth_22 I wasn't ranking them, just listed them
Is Maynor a top 10 all time PG for the Thunder?
@sammasaaron @seth_22 @GlendaGonzales not regarding Eric Maynor
@GlendaGonzales are you okcbaby? this would be awesome
@_justin @GlendaGonzales Maynor had a great halfcourt heave (by great, I mean he consistently attempted it and regularly got close..even made a few).
He was also known for having a very loyal fan base (okcbaby).
@_justin @GlendaGonzales So you don't think Telfair can rise to mediocrity?
@d21 The Thunder should use all the money they saved by getting rid of Harden to incorporate this into their broadcasts.

Watching this Chiefs/Raiders game...I really feel for the Raiders fans, feels like you have a chance to win and slowly that hope just keeps fading away.

@RRRWHOAAAA He got a huge offensive rebound in game 5 last year to all but end the Thunder season...wait CP3 melted and the Thunder won that game.
@AIaska @seth_22 Good point, I was more referring to the absence of Gasol, Randolph & Conley from that list,

The Grizzlies announced Thursday that guards Tony Allen, Courtney Lee and Beno Udrih, forwards Jon Leuer and Jarnell Stokes, center Kosta Koufos and guard/forward Quincy Pondexter all are ill and are questionable for the Boston game.
The Thunder need to ask the Grizzlies how to let infirmities only affect role-players rather than the stars.
@The Adams Family I agree, I think there will be a huge boost in morale when they come back and I bet there will be motivational speeches. But the results will be based on the talent infusion.
1 week ago on Thursday Bolts – 11.20.14
@The Adams Family I think the push to the playoffs will be more based on adding back 2 top 5 players than a speech
@propsizzle @GlendaGonzales They won't lose tonight...but they probably will tomorrow.
@GlendaGonzales That is so sad but true. I used to get pumped for Thunder game days, now its depressing on game day knowing that KD & Russ aren't playing and we are 7 point underdogs to bottom feeding teams.
@Barry Amenema @seth_22 gracias
@Barry Amenema @seth_22 Like next couple days, weeks...months?
When are KD & Russ supposed to have their injury status re-evaluated?
@NZ_Salmon It is more enjoyable to complain about a good team than it is to complain about a bad team.
@nomad I don't get the link between a nursing mother and a professional team with a small lead...I felt too dumb to ask you guys.
@C-Wil Making cameos from the back seat...or making one of those guys sit in the back seat as he starts becoming the new best friend as the other seethes in envy.
@FallenOSIRIS The Thunder we 2-1 @ Memphis in the playoffs last yr... 2-1 @ LA Clips and 0-3 at the Spurs (2 with no Ibaka).
@kevindurant35 He may go to DC in a couple years but they are really reading into that tweet.
What stinks the most about the last 2 games is we dropped in the Moral Standings. Let's keep the next couple games within 2 possessions to start up a new moral victory streak.
These sixer quotes could be Thunder quotes:
@Johnny Thunder I went on the bus to the Rockets game last year.
