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.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third Saw a stat on this dude the other day. Kills it against creampuffs, no-shows against real teams.
1 day, 6 hours ago on Thunder vs Kings: Pregame Primer
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.

2 weeks, 1 day 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.

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.

@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?
1 month, 2 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.
1 month, 2 weeks 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.
2 months 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.
2 months 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.
2 months, 2 weeks 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.
2 months, 2 weeks 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?
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Rook McGary
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's got a perfect storm of 4-star type upperclassman laden O-Line & D-front 7.
2 months, 4 weeks ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: HBD, Serge
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?

This twitterverse fueled, faux outrage, conformist, mob mentality society being created is not conducive to the cultivation of original thought which up to now, has been the differentiating quality of the US. Naziism 2.0.

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.
Dont recall a weekday where ther hasn't been a daily bolts, what gives. Get the "side part" dude go fill in or something.
The Emmy's? Who gives a sh*t? Can tell you who doesn't - Tor F. But as an aside, never watched Breaking Bad while it was on but these recent AME Sunday night marathons have kind of got me hooked. Captivating TV.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third There are a million charities out there. To say one is more deserving than another just cause of some viral phenomenon is rather bogus. Better off keeping all your money & spending it on the best technology available at the time if/when you or a loved one becomes afflicted IMO.
I'm ice-bucket-challenged out. This is starting to remind me of the - damn can't even remember the name- but the thing the Heat & Kansas & many others did where they dance around in costumes.
@Tvaddic @ThunderWins Uh, Serge?
There are a million diseases & causes out there. Odd how this ALS ice bucket thing has taken off. Cancer is a much more prevalent killer if you're wanting to throw some money toward something.
4 months ago on Russ, KD and Perk take the Ice Bucket Challenge
@Sustainable Parameters @Tequila or Failure Yeah, I forgot the PC twitterverse world we live in now doesn't allow rational thought on subjects. It ain't the cop on civilian aspect I'm speaking to, more the cross racial killings. Not to get all bigoted, but can just about guarantee that there are a shitload more whites killed by blacks in a given year than vice versa. How about the dude in Detroit who was killed by an angry mob on account
of accidentally hitting a black girl with his car? Where's the national outrage on this?
4 months ago on The Baddest will be waiting
I'm no fan of cops believe me, but if there's going to be a frickin riot when a maybe innocent person of color is shot, our nation's got problems. Don't recall any riots occurring down in Duncan or Lawton, wherever it was, when that Australian dude was shot in the back while jogging. Could site another 1000 instances of it going the other way is what I'm saying.
Lakers, Jazz, & Mavs worse than projected above - OKC, G-State & Minny slightly better. Dallas @ under 50 wins is the one I'd put $ on.

4 months, 1 week ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: 2KD 15
Hidden positive from KD's withdrawal (which I'm all for), could have been some bad blood rise up in the championship game between he & Serge, considering KD would've been the starting 4 & the two of them presumably would've gone head to head quite a lot. Perhaps that would run over into the NBA season. I don't give a rat's ass about international ball, it's all about the thunder.

Kevin - Grab a nice steak dinner, play a hand or 2 of poker, head back to the hotel, pack your things, get on a plane to OKC, work on jump shots & cardio for the remainder of the offseason.

Why in the hell is Durant's 2016 free agency the biggest story in sports all the sudden. Christ, it led PTI today. I'm not reading/watching another frickin article/segment about this until about April of 2016, & that includes DT.

There've been about a dozen articles ive seen in the last couple of weeks re KD's 2016 FA decision including the one on espn now. We've got 2 frickin years of this shit to listen to/read. Hope all the constant questions & speculation doesn't distract KD from the very real possibility of winning chips in 15 & 16.

I'd love to take about a month + trek down to NZ & Australia at some point in life. The accents of the women are smoking hot. The food appears pretty weak there though, which is why I'm leaning toward Chile as my first international trip.
