Thunder ownership could win back so much good will if they would just open themselves to being interviewed.  We basically have NO idea what the power structure really is within the group or what their objectives are, and it leads to endless speculation about being cheap and half-assed about winning a title.  I don't understand why they are so content to stay silent while everyone takes shots at them.  Unfortunately, the way they go about it only strengthens the perception that they only care about pocketing checks

It will stop being cool when we either win a title or Durant leaves (and if he leaves, it will be cool forever).  When we traded Harden we apparently offended Bill's sense of fandom since we broke up a "dynasty".  I know that we were just coming off a Finals appearance, but I thought that a dynasty had to at least win one title first.


It is really unfortunate that someone with so much influence in the sports world has such an axe to grind.  It definitely colors the media perception of us, and therefore the perception of the casual fan.  You can tell how uncomfortable it makes Lowe to keep ruminating on it.

One of the members of the Chelsea golden generation.  Still root for the guy even though he is a bit of a douche.  He definitely maximized his potential on Bayern

Back from the bar.  Don't know if Justin is on here, but I have to admit that he was right about his Niners.  Thought they would put up more of a fight

He does look like a keeper, or at least worthy of further starts to see for sure.  That team has so many holes you really couldn't go wrong drafting any position

Davis got hurt because he got rolled up on after trying to chase down an interception return.  Pretty much a freak accident, and a heartbreaking one

Up early in the call room this AM.  Trying to figure out which will be better: the Broncos-Niners game, or the knee-jerk reactions from the Thunder preseason game.  Will this one be televised?  I know these are preseason games, but FFS I can't deal with the scoreboard cam again

I am very interested to see how your tackles stand up the Miller/Ware train.  Those two are showing signs of clicking, which would take our defense to the next level

Don't sandbag that hard.  We love to make mobile QBs look like way better than they should.  We also love to play down to the level of our competition.  Covering the Thomases will be a nightmare for you with the injuries though.  Willis being out really hurts.  Are you really going to have Rapist cover Demaryius like I have heard?

If Lamb doesn't show something this year, it will be interesting to see what the plans for Abrines are.  If he can become a useful rotation player, there is a chance that Lamb could be the worst player in the Harden trade (I am assuming that McGary becomes a useful rotation big)

Tough to say, but I have a hard time believing that Carlisle or Pop would be any more gentle with those two then we have.  It's not like they have been put in situations where they can't succeed either.  Lamb was asked to basically chuck with the 2nd unit and Perry looks like he has 3-and-D responsibilities.  They simply haven't seized any moments yet, except for Lamb catching fire for a few weeks.  They both seem to have confidence issues.  


On a positive note, seeing them both playing more aggressively is very encouraging.  Think back to Harden's first couple of seasons.  Watching the light bulb turn on for him when he became more aggressive was very fun to see.  Turned him into a completely different player.  We just have to exercise the same patience, and if they don't capitalize then we may see bags getting packed by the trade deadline.

Since we may play our two Detroit games with KD out, that takes another candidate off the "I'm playing the Thunder so here comes my career high" list.  And yes, I realize that we already gave Meeks that game last year

I'm sure ol' Bill has been working on some extra shade to throw our way with his suspension and KD's injury.  Does he say "Harden trade' within two minutes of the start?

I expect big things from Steve this year, but there will obviously be ups and downs.  The interplay between Serge and him will be interesting, especially since Steve shows some promise as a rim protector

Rather than see some 40 USG ridiculousness I would love to see Russ focus on ball movement, playmaking and defense and try to let some of the unproven talent like Lamb, Jones and Adams pick up the slack.  In a way, I want to see him play in the manner that I suspect Derrick Rose will be playing while Chicago reincorporates him into their lineup.  There will be a lot of pain with it, but it is kind of sink or swim for many of the young players so that we know what we have moving forward

He was having swelling in his knee most likely because of his surgeries.  We are several months removed from even his last procedure at this point

The type of injury that he had is not due to fatigue of a muscle or structure, but rather due to a violent explosive movement.  He could have a tear if you rested him five days for every game he played
