2 years, 5 months ago on Thunder at Spurs: Game 2 Pregame Primer
@FF_pickups It's never as simple as extrapolating a few minutes of one game to apply to an entire hypothetical series.
@FF_pickups Nah, that's a pretty simplified assessment. You think Pop won't come up with an adjustment to counter our lineup tonight? This team will absolutely disintegrate the Heat.
All this talk of us not playing to our potential - all that says is that the Spurs play some pretty damn good defense.
STOP BLAMING THE REFS DANGIT
@ThunderChick2010 Yeah but "O-K-C" isn't a proper chant. There's no verb in there haha. That along with the matching shirts just makes it look like this is the first time Oklahoma has ever been in contact with the NBA. I want to go back to "Let's Go Thunder."
2 years, 5 months ago on Thunder miss a big opportunity dropping Game 1 101-98
@ThunderChick2010 I hate that we're laughed at by fans of other teams for our chant.
@Old Man Game Yes, dead on.
Does it bother anyone that our home chant is "O-K-C!"? I hate it. Has to be one of the lamest chants in pro sports.
@FF_pickups ESPN polls are hardly an accurate measure as 60% of the people who vote are fans of teams that are playing. And we're not that much smaller of a market than they are. Visually, it's pretty clear - we're far more exciting than the Spurs.

@FF_pickups I hope you realize Spurs fans could easily come up with a similar list of no-calls for the Spurs. It works both ways. And I'm sure they're asking the same question about Joey Crawford. Have you seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOygTd1NWCM. Crawford hates Duncan.
Ultimately, it's Brooks' adjustments, as others have pointed out, and not the refs that cost us the game.
@FF_pickups Keep in mind that from a TV ratings perspective, the NBA would much, much, rather have an exciting, explosive young team like us than the boring methodic, geriatric Spurs in the finals.
@FF_pickups I'm frustrated by the game too, but let's not let our emotions get in the way of level-headed, rational evaluation of where things went wrong.
@alvarex I feel somewhat the same way, but the amount of influence the refs had in this loss? At most 2%. The other 98% was us shooting ourselves in the foot. That, and Brooks.
@FF_pickups Refs tend to reward whichever team gets physical. The Spurs also hit their shots. To say the refs had a "big hand" in their comeback is overblown and shortsighted.
Blaming the refs is almost always a cop-out. You can blame the refs all you want, but you have to hand it to the Spur for going on a freakin' 30-11 run in the last 9 minutes.
