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.

More than anything, we need KD & Russ to start playing like KD & Russ again.
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.
1 week, 4 days ago on Thunder execute the Magic, 127-99
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.

Continue to believe we've got the most talented roster in the league. Wouldn't know it from the last 4-games but we just need to put this shit together. Maybe Brooks is in fact the problem.
Mr. Steven Adams was impressive as hell today. Especially like the 3 on man (not weakside) blocks. Sky's the ceiling w/this sumbitch.

I like this Upshaw kid from U-dub. NBA draft net has got him as a 2nd rounder, seems way low.

You all noticing this yoga / hand to chest/ breathing exercise Russ is trotting out tonight on free throws? Hard to argue w/the results so far though. Dude is a weird duck.
1 month, 1 week ago on Thunder vs Lakers: Pregame Primer
Just some hideous effin bball going on here tonight.
Robes has got this little sideways hand-cock right at the end of his shot so he's got to adjust side to side as well as distance on the shot. Hand in the cookie jar homey.
1 month, 1 week ago on Thunder vs Warriors: Pregame Primer
Every time these bastards throw it up I feel it's going in. These sumbitches can shoot.
Damn this is fun.
Russ is frickin awesome, no other way to put it. We know what KD can do when 100%, no reason in the world why we shouldn't win the chip this year, don't care what our seed is.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Thunder vs Kings: Pregame Primer
@King of Carrot Flowers the third Saw a stat on this dude the other day. Kills it against creampuffs, no-shows against real teams.
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.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on KD returns but the Thunder fizzle against the Pelicans, 112-104
3-12, eff it - tank. Seems a decent chance that KD & Russ are gone in the next couple of years, might as well get a blue-chipper in this draft while the opportunity is presenting itself.
2 months ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.25.14
So some talk today about KD & Russ practicing lightly, which is good obviously, but what about PJ3? It's been what 2-3 weeks now? No question if he was in there over Lance Thomas in meaningful minutes, at least 2 of the recent close losses would be wins. Is this current knee issue related to the red flags he got prior to the draft? Do some investigative reporting Royce or Darnell.
2 months, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Soon
@UnleashMorrowFaction @Tequila or Failure Dunno about Thomas, his accuracy is piss poor going back to the tech game. Wind in that one, rain today, I guess I'll give him one more shot.
Rudolph's got a future I think. Should have thrown him in there 2 or 3 games ago. He looks better than Cody Thomas, which ain't saying much. Also, I've got something for the little AT&T commercial girl.
@Divine Mortal @The Adams Family & Mitch & cap relief.
Will KD & Russ accept being 2nd & 3rd options behind PJ?
2 months, 4 weeks ago on Thunder vs Nuggets: Pregame Primer
No chance in hell PJ3 can sustain anything close to last night's performance for the next month & 1/2. He is what he is dating all the way back to Baylor, 4-2-1 in 30 for two games then 30 in the 3rd, then back to nonexistent.
3 months ago on Westbrook likely out 4 to 6 weeks: Can the Thunder survive?
Preseason & all but Russ has been extremely underwhelming thus far. Coupled w/continued lack of development from Lamb & PJ3, early season injuries to Nick, Perk, Mitch, RJ, Serge, & KD, am starting to get a bad feeling about this year. Think we'll crawl out to about a 9-11 start, rebound some once people get healthy but will only net a 6-seed or so. Maybe we run thru the playoffs from that spot a la Houston w/Hakeem but the odds are stacked against it.

Got a bad feeling that Honeycutt has contracted a permanent case of the yips. Could see it building even in his makes in previous games. Frickin head case kickers.
3 months, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Eyebrows
Thought KD was running on fumes by the end of the playoffs last year so maybe a 2-month break will turn out to be a blessing in disguise & keep him fresh for when it matters.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Five questions on what Kevin Durant’s injury means
Speaking as someone who's broken the wrist area twice, both times playing bball incidentally, a wrist is either broke or it ain't, it's not like a foot or something with a bunch of minor bones, so probably a sprain, shouldn't be a long-term concern. Although, wish it wasn't the shooting hand.

Re Russ being the best pg in the league, he frickin torched the incumbent 'best' in CP3 in their series (outside of game 1 where cp3 couldn't miss) last post season on his way to a 27 -8-8 average or thereabouts over the course of the playoffs so yes, I've got no problem anointing Russ as the best in the league.
4 months ago on Wednesday Bolts – 10.1.14
I think we're fixin' to go on a 3-yr chip run. KD will resign, Russ will resign, Serge will resign. Dynasty in the making.
The AL is crap. Pitchers should hit. It flows much better from the pitching perspective, you plan around a gimme in the 9 hole, plus, double switches & the like are much more exciting & intellectual in the NL. Go Cards. Also, RJ needs to slow his roll, he's a solid player but know your role. If he wants to be a primary option on a 25-win bucks or magic & think that gets his 'brand' more exposure than as the 6th man on a perennial contennder so be it.
4 months ago on Reggie Jackson and the starting issue
I love Russ more than anyone, but his obsession with fashion (current DOK article as the latest example), I cannot fathom. He's one of the 10 % in that world that's straight, he's got a fiancé so presumably he's not trying to lure females,,,, what's the fascination? Levi's, monocolor walmart t-shirt, what else does one need?

Feels like this should have been a multiple post day cause I got NBA fever w/some of the camps kicking off today. I was looking forward to an hour or 2 of watching ours only to find out it's Monday. The Cavs new coach has got the charisma of a wet paper sack, I don't see this working out well for them. Surprised he's American cause he looks & acts just like a Russian.

OU is pretty frickin good this year. Given all of today's other results (Oregon pending) don't know why they shouldn't be ranked #1.
Read the piece from the Boston writer in the Bolts. I lived in and around okc from birth to 25 & no one I knew personally wore cowboy boots or hats & I saw very few people wearing them around. I've never been to the cowboy hall of fame nor ridden a mechanical bull in my life. The overt message in the article is that okc is great but beneath the surface, they're insinuating that you're all a bunch of uncouth country cowpokes that are fun to observe like fish in an aquarium. People from Boston annoy me, arrogant entitled douchebags.

Russ' dunk all over the faces of several spurs (#3 on this list) is one of the sickest bball plays I've ever seen. Come on Royce, how could that not have made your top 10?

Blake & Russ would be my choices for 90+. I hate Berman so much, don't know how long I'll be able to stick with this game. Can't even express how much I dislike everything about him, easily my least favorite espn personality ever, although steven a is getting there.

So Serge got zero minutes for Spain today. Anyone know why?
I don't give a rat's ass about NASCAR, but seems to me that Tony Stewart was coached/lawyered up to the hilt for today's press conference. The cracking voice, saying all the right things about the victim & his family,, all seemed very rehearsed. And yet, the media seems to have bought it hook line & sinker. Maybe all the contrition is legit but I'd put about a 10% chance on that.

Sleeping under the stars in the bed of the truck tonight for the hell of it. I hear some javelinas snorting around & coyotes howling in the distance. AZ is frickin crawling w/interesting wildlife. Hot as hell though, no disputing that. It's a dry heat as they say but 105 is not pleasant no matter what.
