I remember going to a Kings game in Kansas City.  The next time I went to a pro game was about 30 years later in OKC.  Seattle should be glad that their whining got them a team after only 5 years.

I appreciate what Cook brought last game, but, man, I wish that the Thunder had a deadeye role player...though I guess we've got KD and Harden, so I'll

 take what we've got.

Stunned to see that we outshot them from 3.  With all the shots Jackson hit, it felt like they barely missed one until the end.

I wish there was a half-point option, simply to decrease the chance of overtime.

The lure shirt is a little known NBA award that was formerly known as :The Brass Balls."  IT's given to the player who gives the least of a sh*t about what is said about him in a year.

 @FREE_COLE  @Old Man Game  @Wanderer  @C_Dub Russ got a lot of time to develop based on the "not a natural point guard" idea.  It wasn't until last year's playoffs that he started to get heat to develop a game outside of athleticism.  I expect Blake to see the same criticism this summer, after the Clips flame out in round one or two.  He absolutely needs to find a way to shoot free throws.

 

Nice job on your hate list, by the way.  True reasons to be a hater.

2 years, 3 months ago on Thunder at Clippers: Pregame Primer

Reply

 @FREE_COLE  @Old Man Game  @Wanderer  @C_Dub Oh, and I agree -- Blake's more athlete than skilled basketball player.  However, that's good enough in a lot of the NBA.  That's why KD is so awesome.  He has skill.  

 

Russ could be argued to be more athlete than skill player, though.  He's kind of Blake with a lower shooting% and a higher FT%.  I like him 'cause he's a Thunderer, and insane athlete and an incredible competitor; the league hates him cause he mugs after every shot and complains to the refs.  So why hate Blake, other than he's on the other team?  I can respect that.

 @HookemKD I think Durant is dealing with the same reputation that Jordan had initially -- he needs to win to be viewed as something other than just a scorer.

 @Old Man Game  @Wanderer  @C_Dub It's hard to imagine how Love could get enough attention.  Anyone who doesn't like his game is blind.  Likewise, it is hard to understand how anyone can say that Blake is anything other than electrifying.  He's always a play away from a YouTube video.  Conversely, he's also a play away from missing two free throws or clanking a 12-foot shot.  Some criticisms are warranted for Blake, but not without acknowledging that he is really good at other parts of the game.

 @Wanderer  @C_Dub I agree on Blake -- only reason to hate Blake is that he's great at what he does and a little over-hyped.  Bayless has kept up a stream of unwarranted invective against Westbrook for almost no reason, or maybe more accurately, beyond reason.  The benefit now is that it seems to have made the Thunder tighter and has ended the questions about Westbrook's value as a player.

I like 49, too.  He needs to make up a little over 0.3 ppg (i.e., a little over 20) and score at Kobe's avg, (i.e., a little for 28).

Skip Bayless, Skip Bayless, Skip Bayless.  See?  When you say something, it takes away its power.  I think that today's 5-on-5 (http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/5-on-5-120416/nba-best-best) shows that good old Skipper ran the "Westbrook-is-poison" meme so far into the dirt that Russ has now reemerged on the other side of the Sports World as one of the "top 12 players in the league."

Why is JJ Barea the Thunder's kryptonite?  I know that ignores what Tony Parker can do to OKC, but who isn't glad that Barea doesn't play for the Spurs?  If he did, we'd never make the Finals.
