I don't have the answers as how to split the minutes, but Mitch has still got to get some once everyone's healthy. Dude is skilled.

Pretty clear of the no KD lineup, when Russ plays great we win, when he doesn't we don't.

Guess I didn't appreciate it prior but Morrow can jack his accurate, shovel-style, sidewinding 3-pt shot in no time at all. Hear all the Morrow over Waiters chatter but no doubt, DW's a much better defender.

KD ought to get off twitter. Reading all that incendiary nonsense from teenagers & knuckleheads wouldn't do anyone any good.

@Told you it Was Russ' Team Now *Tvaddic* Best believe that KD still thinks he's the best player on earth as he should so I'm confused as to what to take from this.

I believe we get more ink/talking-head breath than any team in the league. Half of it is devoted to driving a stake thru KD/Russ & the Thunder but just the same, the amount of national press little ole small market, middle America OKC gets is close to astonishing. Never would've envisioned it growing up in what was once a no-horse town.

The lineup the Knicks are throwing out there is absolutely ridiculous. Who the hell would pay those sky high MSG prices to go see that traveshamokery?

I'd love to get GS in the playoffs, preferably in the WCF.  Think Russ can just out-athlete both of those frickin splash bro's over the course of 7. We ought to be able to significantly out-rebound them as well, but all those long shots they take lead to long rebounds so it ain't always that easy.

As much as I route for Robes, it's hard to fathom how terrible he is on (non-offensive rebounding) O. I'm a 5-10 white guy who didn't play past 3-A high school & I'm comfortable saying I'd take & hit many/most of the shots he routinely passes up/misses.

Russ is at the absolute peak of his powers right now. He'll likely never be better - perfect confluence of athleticism of youth plus some experience-acquired wisdom.

Dallas looks frickin horrible. Hard to believe we're how ever many games behind these stiffs. Mitch ain't showing alot since those first couple of games. His D is flat awful & if he ain't doing positives on the other end, he's a liability.

A little skeptical of our ability to resign Kanter this summer considering his presumed cost & the overlap w/Adams. Still think we'd be better off long-term paying a top shelf SG the money we'll have to pay Kanter & get by w/a serviceable 5 behind Stevo.

Heild going off is the only chance OU's got. Problem is, he can't really create for himself cause he can't dribble for shit. As such, I think 1st round projections for him are bs.

I think I'm taking Wisconsin for the chip in the annual office pool. Remember the OU game earlier in the year, got the impression we couldn't have beat them if we played 10 times. Probably couldn't beat Kentucky in 10 either but they can be beaten by someone.

Don't think I comment at the time but the DT article from a day or 2 ago when all 3 of the contributors predicted 100%+ chance that we'd make the playoffs kind of annoyed me. Nothing like unhealthy overconfidence to put a supreme jinx on the team. OU is better than Texas, think that'll be evident by the end of the game.

@hamfists  Jack's about as good as it gets imo. Like the Stripes a lot more than his solo stuff though, a bit more balls to ir. I think most musicians only have so many good songs in them. Plus all the wealth & fame ain't conducive to creating angst-ridden music.

One thing I've noticed about Waiters,, Too much of that AND-1, Rucker Park influence on the jump shots. It's ok to go straight up when the shot ain't contested, you don't have to lean just to make it more impressive looking.

Hardly recognize this Serge compared to years past. Where's the follow-slamming, penetrator-stalking, rim-sweeper I grew to love. Wonder if coaches had him to totally change his game to give SteveO that role.

OU looks to have about the same team they've had since the Blake days. Pretty decent, but destined to flame out in the 1st or 2nd round. None of these Kansas guys are screaming big-time NBA po to me.

Saw some talk below about Kobe replacing Barkley on TNT. Seems ok but if there's one dude I'd like to see on a studio show it's Dirk - he's the most interesting bballer around you ask me. KD's got a nice future in it if he wants in another 12-yrs or so following a 5 in 7 type of championship run for okc.

Somehow I didn't realize this game occurred until now, 8:40 MNT. The outcome seems predictable, think we've turned the corner & are fixin to wreck the league. Incidentally, I'm 9-1 ATS in the NFL playoffs - hand to god or whoever you want me to put it to. NE over Sea at a pick in the easiest call of the playoffs.

I find Royce's disdain for Russ' media sessions amusing. Am not sure how Russ' "plan backfired". He talked cordially to the ESPN guy right after the game & must have done a sit down w/some espn person prior to the game cause they showed some footage of that during the game so Russ' issues seem to be with the local jackals only. Russ ain't the deepest thinker in the world & you know you're getting nothing but 'canned' answers from him even on his friendly days so I could give a rat's ass if he's curt w/the Tramel's of the world, in fact, I rather enjoy it.

Don't know that it'd be any better for us to get the 5-seed instead of the 8-seed, it's gonna be a road show no matter what (barring utter excellence) & the difference between 1 (GS?) & 4(SA?) is pretty much non-existent this year.

Curry is pretty damn good, no question about it. I'd still take Russ though - can't wait for Thursday. Memphis,,, don't quite know how they've got the record they do. Same slightly above average team more or less they've had for years. Can easily see them dropping to 5th or so by year end.
