Tequila or Failure
Bio not provided
I wasn't too worried about the recent swoon until today. The D has been frickin awful. The perimeter guys are easily allowing themselves to get caught on the initial high screen which puts us in switching catch up mode for the rest of the possession. Russ, I love you man but damn, please get your shit under control. We don't get back into the game in the 4th without his frenetic play but without his careless turnovers & bricked shots/layups in the first 3, we probably ain't in that hole to start with.
6 hours, 23 minutes ago on Thunder defile themselves, falling 114-110 to the Lakers
Still am not sure about Smart's ceiling in the league. Can see a bunch of stat sheet stuffing 12-8-10-4-2 type of games in his future which I guess is worthy of a top 6 pick. His floor generalship & D are top shelf but his shot is substandard to say the least. A mix of Kidd (minus the sublime passing gene), Tony Allen & just a little bit of Russ (minus the insane athleticism) sprinkled in.

Watch silver linings playbook once & tell me you wouldn't give a left arm for a chick like that.
1 week ago on Thunder lock down the Bobcats, 116-99
I would pay an insane amount of $ for a naked night w/Jennifer Lawrence.
Wow, 4-6 for Thabo? I did not know that. I want Roberson to get some more burn. Dude is an absolute terror on D and on the boards. Granted his O sucks but w/ Thabo & Perk out, we can afford a minus offensive player considering everything else he gives us.
Man, Lebron looks frickin terrifying in that new black hanibal lecter mask. If a 6-8, 260lb dude rolled up on me in an alley wearing that headgear, am pretty sure I'd offer up my wallet & then curl up in the fetal position.

It's likely we'll have to beat 2 of SA, Lac or Houston. After 3 straight home losses, it seems that home court doesn't mean much. The D is effin horrendous of late, need to get that shit cleaned up if we're gonna make it past round 1.

Except he's been pretty much invisible when he's in.

I think crap team X would be crazy to pass on Embid @ #1. The dude is a friggin giant yet his movements are incredibly fluid. Guaranteed future all-star in my book.
Ok then, SA, Indy nor Miami will pay the tax. Are they not trying to win just cause they're not throwing 20 mil per on the likes of Amare or Gasol or 9 per on thadeous young/ Granger types?
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Heat vs. Thunder: Pregame primer
There are all of 4 teams that will pay the tax this year (the NY & LA teams). Am not sure why we always get singled out (dickhead Simmons primarily) for being cheap.
Chalmers is no scrub on D, & Russ couldn't maintain his dribble well enough to get by him rather than lost explosiveness IMO.
Russ' ballhandling & passing were sloppy as hell but he looked like his same old springy, crazy athlete self so an overall positive on the Russ front.
Blake's a bad dude. Fellow north okc, OU guy so am always slightly conflicted, not enough to route for him over the thunder obviously But pull for him against all others.

Man, I've got zero fear of the spurs this year. The clock has run out. No chance in hell they can hang w/our athleticism. The clips, mainly Blake, a little different story. The dude is a rim sweeping finisher like few others. Would still take us to win a series but LAC a much bigger threat this year IMO.
Royce if you're out there, please post the opposition webste's game summary in the bolts as you did today. My other longstanding suggestion is Thundergirl of the week. That one never got answered so I don't expect much from this plea.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Wednesday Bolts – 2.12.14
Forgetting all the on-fan aggression, Smart hasn't played worth a damn for the last month. He's the 3rd best player on a team that's 4-6 in conference. I was dead wrong on him last year. Example 1 on why you strike when the iron's hot, talking to you Embid, Jameis, etc.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Reaping greatness
8-2-1 for Kmart on a night where they needed extra from elsewhere. Anytime I hear some national media hack say we're weaker cause of the loss of him I recoil. All the same, this shouldn't have been a game going into the 4th against that cast of characters. Find myself randomly holstering double six-shooters cause I'm excited as hell for the return of Russ.

Ostate BBall in a tight battle w/UT football for the team that's done the least with the most over the last couple of years. Smart's stock dropping like a rock in my book.
1 month ago on Grizzlies vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Can't recall caring less about a loss than this one. Back to backs are gonna get you eventually, don't care how good the team is. Plus, what do you want to bet that KD was up until 9AM this morning w/some of his DC homies?
