Thunder fan from SW Oklahoma. Fellow blog writer, but don't get paid for it.
I don't understand all the hype surrounding Noel. Yes, he blocks a lot of shots. Yes, he has cat like reflexes. But he's 206 pounds and he's already had 2 ACL injuries. A guy playing the power forward/center positions (you know, the biggest positions on the floor) needs a little meat on his bones. Any other draft, those would be RED FLAGS and he'd drop. But, in this draft, he's a No. 1 pick. I just don't get it. And I think the Cavs don't get it either.

My dream draft: (we somehow get the Mavs No. 13 pick also, without giving up Lamb, PJ, Reggie, or DLiggs).
12: Steven Adams
13. Dennis Schroeder
29. Giannis Adetokunbo
32. Reggie Bullock
Stash Schroeder and Adetokunbo for 2 seasons and we'll be set for the present and the future.

A basketball doesn't weight 185 lbs. Also, players don't play in high heels, platform shoes, or wedges.

Everyday I kiss my kids goodbye and never truly feel whole until I'm with them all under the same roof.

No one knows the feeling until you hold that little baby in your hands for the first time. I'm gonna give all my babies a big kiss when I get home from work....even if they are all asleep.
When you're standing reach is 9'8", you don't need to jump that high.

Something short and simple, but very true and powerful. We are Oklahoma. And We are Strong!
I love you Oklahoma. Here's a little something to get us back to the Thunder:
And here's a little something I wrote about the connection between the Thunder and OKC a while back.
Lionel Hollins needs a finger transplant.
5 days, 4 hours ago on Presti: Amnesty is ‘not really something we’ve explored’
I'm usually on the side that Perk's value is not in his statistics, but in what he provides to his teammates (a big brother, an ear to listen, the veteran guiding hand). But after this postseason, his play on the court has become a detriment to the team. Its amazing to me that he played better last postseason with a torn groin and injured wrist.
Do Perk still hold value? Of course. A big body that can defend other big bodies is always a commodity in the NBA. But its up the Brooks to pick and choose his spots with Perk, and that's where the problem comes into play. If a sergeant tells a private to do something, the private has to follow suit. Hence the Brooks - Perk issue. If Brooks tells Perk to play, its not like Perk is going to willfully take himself out.
I'm okay with the team keeping Crazy Uncle Perk, as long as Brooks does the right thing.
