Durant might have the best crossover in the league, which is insane considering his size and where his ball handling was 3-4 years ago

4 months, 2 weeks ago on VIDEO: Russell Westbrook’s speed triple-double
@thelaughingwiseman he has shut down howard buy fronting him on multiple occasions, not sure about gasol but im sure he could do it
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Bolts – 3.4.14
@Perk-Punt @El Prez Because our bench is dope, we know what we have in our starters, shit theyre capable of matching the heat themselves, just hasn't happened yet. But our bench development is an exciting thing to watch this year
7 months, 1 week ago on Thursday Bolts – 12.12.13
@El Prez like you said lebron is gonna abuse everybody he has no weakness he can counter anything you throw at him. I was merely suggesting that we have this new guy PJ3 who we could throw at him and at least try to match some of that size athleticism combo. Im saying what if brooks told PJ just go out and stay in front of him. Dont worry about anything else, just stay in front of lebron at all times. give him 12 mins of that 15-20 of KD, and then maybe a little Ibaka. It could be semi effective.
@[corporate shill] @okcjim @ Luke Defending lebron is our problem, He is the catalyst of that offense if you double him its over, gotta find a way to slow him down with one on one defense.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Thursday Bolts – 12.12.13
@El Prez @KellOne @f5alcon @Lokedogg @d21 @exclamatory remark I'm pretty confident in our abilities to beat indiana, its Indiana beating Miami I don't see happening.
@f5alcon @Lokedogg @d21 @El Prez @exclamatory remark haha that would be nice, but I don't theres even a remote chance the pacers get past the heat in seven games, barring injuries to bron, wade or bosh.
@d21 @El Prez @exclamatory remark I agree we've just got a find a way to slow him down with out doubling him. Their ball movement and 3 pointers kill us. I think we need to deploy that length line up on them and rotate KD, Ibaka, And PJ one on one with Bron. That length may be able to disrupt some of their passing
@king of carrot flowers Yeah probably not, I don't see why not though. We should try it in the regular season. We have never been able to even come close to slowing him down. We might as well just rotate our 4 best defenders on him and see what happens. Probably won't happen though I agree.
What're the chances we throw PJ out on lebron and see how it goes?
@Perk-Punt @Archaeon @MrRaysian Yeah I agree with whats being said. I think lamb is certainly capable of handling the ball, it'll come more with confidence I think. However, realize our system revolves around insanely good ball handlers, but you need player who can move without the ball to offset that regardless. If our closing lineup can develop with russ and reggie as the main ball handlers, plus some KD obviously, and Ibaka and Lamb flanked out ready too shoot I think that we are deadly. I could see lamb developing as a great fit, 14-16 a night and happy with the role. All those ball handlers driving to the rim creates space on the perimeter for lamb and ibaka to get wide open jump shots.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Thunder coast in Memphis, 116-100
@[corporate shill] @Lokedogg I agree our team is not set up for him, but it wasnt really set up great for harden either. This is what worries me. I just think when lambs playing with confidence, which it seems hes been doing all year, hes got a great offensive skill set. I like the thompson comparison though. However overall I like lambs ceiling more.
Jeremy Lamb will eventually reach harden-esque levels, kinda reminds me of a reggie miller, just such smooth textbook offense. So stoked watching our young talent develop
@Quetzalcoatl @Lokedogg probably not less than KD, but yeah I understand that its just why are we still complaining about the same thing we've been complaining about for the last three or four years, we know what we have in russ, and we now know what we have without him. He has improved his control and decision making every year. The guy is just so competitive (kobe-esque) that he sometimes get lost in the game. I can't justify faulting him for that. You can just see how badly he wants to win in the effort hes putting out.
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder fail late in Portland, 111-104
@Zach99 @Lokedogg I mean yeah I watched the game as well, we all know that these types of games will happen with Russ so what it's one game in december. When playoffs come around hell be in control and in prime form as he has been for the last three years. Just let the man play ball.
Man I didn't think I was ever going to have to see all this Westbrook hate again.
I think Royce pointed this out a couple of weeks ago when Westbrook went down, but similar to the Heat I think that installing a traditional system would be crippling the offensive talents of Westbrook and Durant. There is a system its, put the ball in the hands of our two best players and let the defense collapse, spoelstra is widely regarded as some sort of genius for installing an almost identical system, brooks had been doing that at least a year earlier. The only difference is durant is not lebron and we don't have as good of shooters. I truly believe this system will pay off. Westbrook Durant will end there careers as one of the best tandems of all time and we will get a title eventually and we should get a couple. Remeber that we are 4 years younger than the heat big 3.

1 year, 3 months ago on Knicks stay hot and cool the Thunder, 125-120
To be completely honest, I thought harden's talents were being wasted as a third option, and I knew he would thrive just as he has in his number one role. However, I think it's ridiculous to even think he might be better than Westbrook. Westbrook in my opinion is like a mix between kobe and a mini lebron. I think he's got the highest ceiling in the league. Maybe I'm crazy but the guy is an incredible talent with an even more incredible work ethic and competitive drive. When he and durant are 28 and in there prime this team is going to be doing similar things to what the heat are doing now.

going to see the thunder tonight in pheonix, gonna be real sad if I dont get to see Ibaka.
1 year, 6 months ago on Thunder gut one out in Portland, 87-83
@O O O O O O @Legendary_Dork yessir!
1 year, 7 months ago on Thursday Bolts - 12.20.12
@Legendary_Dork Haha I think we will all cry, as we have watched this team grow exponentially each year, this is our year. I love harden as much as the next guy, but (gulp) I think this trade worked out for the best.
@Lamb Fries (AKA Bry Bry) @PerkPunt I wanna see 50-60 from KD at the garden. And I kind of believe KD has this game in the back of his mind
Its pretty much a staple as an OKC fan, but damn do I hate how immensely people continue to sleep on Westbrook. Once he slides that ring on his finger in the ceremony next season (yeah we will win it this year.), people will be drooling over him. Mark my words. Preaching to the choir I know, but I just had to blow off some steam after not seeing a single analyst choose him as #1 in that 5--5
Id love to have love, I cant believe you guys are comparing him to howard I think everything love said was justifiable. And I think love is a top 10 player in this league. However, I think ibakas ceiling is too high to let go at the age of 23. And if we were some how able to keep ibaka in all of this, there just wouldn't be enough shots to go around. I think we stay with what we have until perks contract is up, then we either let him go or resign him for a bench spot and less money. At which point we add a defensive minded and tough center similar to perk with just a little more athleticism and offensive capability
1 year, 7 months ago on Wednesday Bolts – 12.12.12
@PerkPunt Thatd be a great trade, dudley is a SF right?
1 year, 8 months ago on Tuesday Bolts - 11.20.12
@PerkPunt That would be a nice piece, dont know what wed give up for him though
@sammasaaron that raptors pick, rather
@sammasaaron Yeah, I also like the way that presti seems to always be patient with these things. I'd like to hang on to lamb too, aside from perks defense on the 2 or 3 legit low post players though he leaves soo much to be desired. Would be cool if that rockets pick turned into someone like nerlens noel though wouldnt it?
@HerseyHawkins This could be true, maybe in our organization he wouldnt be such a douche though
what does everyone think about the possibility of us really making a run at gortat? In a deadline trade that involves lamb and/or martin perk and a pick or two? I think it would make us significantly better, however im not sure how realistic it really is, thoughts?
@SB718 I completely agree they're playing their game, and they beat us with it last night. However, I thought we played very poorly, and durant was the only reason we had a chance in the first place. We can't continue to assume durant is going to save us in the fourth with 15+ points. we've got to play better from the start, and we have to move the ball and make the extra pass. That being said I've been extremely impressed with our mental toughness throughout the playoffs, and am confident we will bounce back in game 3.

2 years, 1 month ago on KD takes over as OKC evens the series, 109-103
Yesterday I brought up that miami game, where we moved the ball so well, and I think we played pretty close to that last night. Watching us make that extra pass nearly every time was a thing of beauty, especially Russ who finally on an off shooting night decided to show the league that he can pass with the best of em'. Great game all around, great effort, and great focus. If we can keep that up, no one will beat us.
2 years, 1 month ago on Thunder suffocate the Spurs in Game 3, 102-82
@anonymous12345 we continue to play defense like that, and play with effort like that we wont lose
@anonymous12345 this is awesome
@SB718 2 thoughts on that... #1 I really do believe harden and Ibaka both would be willing to take a discount. And while I truly believe that harden will become the best 2 guard in the league within the next couple of years I dont think hes earned a max contract yet.
2 years, 1 month ago on Thunder battle back but drop Game 2 to go down 0-2, 120-111
I think were all making some crazy suggestions just because were being beat by a team playing as close to perfect as possible. Like royce mentioned, parker made everything, and that dagger that manu hit was just ridiculous. Lets be honest, we are all spoiled to be fans of a team that we have watched grow up together and that has 3 bonafide all stars and possibly a 4th in ibaka all under the age of 23, plus a coach thats been here the whole time and is still learning. We often say were the best bounce back team in basketball, and we reserve the right to say that based on the evidence. IF we lose to the spurs this year, we will bounce back next year and our guys will continue to work as hard as anybody in the league. Are we really ready to give up on Ibaka because of one bad offensive game, what he does on defense is huge for this team. (Perk is a whole different story as much as i appreciate his low post 1 on 1 defense) But we have all seen the signs of what Ibaka may be able to do offensively as he continues to grow. I think its also possible brooks has continued to stick with his Iso based offense because we have 3 of the best iso players in the league. And for those who are saying that he has improved nothing as a coach, how about defensive rotations? because those look a lot better this year than they did last. I think next year the ball movement will improve dramatically, brooks knows that and i think our team knows that, this is an extremely smart and hardworking group of guys. Anyone remember the ball movement in that miami heat game a month or so ago? Shows this team is plenty capable. Lost in the potential we all see on the horizon is the time it takes to grow and gain experience. Lets continue to support our squad, while we know they will continue to work their asses off for us. In the meantime we can all dream about when our core 4 is 25 or 26. Who gon stop us heeeh?
@kec_okc Hell yeah that's dope, honestly wouldnt mind if they charged 10 bucks to get in there though... help us pay harden and ibaka

@World Peace Sucks Kobe said that hes a huge fan of james and he hopes that hes ok, harden and kobe are actually great friends, james grew up watching kobe and they get along great, all the jawing between the two is in good fun. Wouldnt be suprised to see kobe working with james later in his career
2 years, 3 months ago on OKC lets a lead slip to the Lakers losing in double-OT 114-106
@MrRaysian agreed same here i often find myself pulling for the lakers, but then i talk to a fan and start to hate them again
They have zero respect for the game... it only lakers lakers lakers, excuses excuses excuses. I grew up in LA and i cant stand the lakers, unfortunately. Mostly because of the idiot fans, completely unrespectable
lol im from LA lakers fans are literally jokes
@Old Man from Oil country If your talking about perkins i think that was a great trade personally. Also, KG has got more than just attitude left in him, hes got a knock down jumper and still plays above average defense. and i know he wont be cheap but maybe he would like the opportunity for a ring, a chance to play with perk, and a chance to mentor some of these young guys. he may take a pay cut?
2 years, 4 months ago on OKC digs deep hole and can't get out against the Spurs, 114-105
I don't know if presti would even look into it... but I think signing kevin garnett in the offseason would easily turn us into the best team in the league. Not because of his play necessarily but because of the intensity he brings to the floor every night, especially on defense. If he would be willing to come of the bench and play around 18 minutes a game. Also, i think he could turn surge into the top 5 PF he has the potential to be.
