what he do now?
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Exit Interviews: There is no clock
I'm not sold on jvg. He's been away so long. & i absolutely hated those knicks offenses
I like perk. i wish he was better but hey. He gives the effort he just lackin at this stage of his career... I think he played very well in the postseason
i don't see too many viable candidates.... it's a dice game
i wouldn't mind fish moving onto the okc coaching staff if nyk or lal balks at giving him the hc position
that perk comment .. wow ... didn't try to play beantown ball at any other time??
5 months, 4 weeks ago on The Thunder’s season ends in six to the Spurs, 112-107
when 1 of they key players doesn't get injured during a run thru the playoffs

situation is still the same … have to win a game in texas … no biggie
6 months ago on Thunder vs. Spurs: Game 5 Pregame Primer
@Coaeche Brooookes who did? not okc … the obvious difference in this game was pop going to a small lineup …brooks should have countered so ibaka wouldn't have to worry about defending away from the basket
@aballer1515 its mostly scheme but the effort should be better … i think you guys underestimate how difficult it is to stay with ball handlers who come off numerous screens each possession
@Coaeche Brooookes did you learn anything from games 1 & 2 ??
… the defense sucked because the lone paint presence was on the perimeter
@Lost Ones its irking watching him just stand on the wing for entire possessions
brooks man i swear
I'm always quick to his defense on dt
anyone could see that the adjustment was to play ibaka at the 5… with ibaka chasing dudes on the perimeter the defense revolts back to games 1 & 2 when he didn't even play
& how do you win twice in a row with fisher & caron buried on the bench, & they become stalwarts again?
i went to junior high with docs son .... 15 years later doc knocked off my old girl ... do the math
6 months ago on Spurs vs. Thunder: Game 4 Pregame Primer
Fury hunh. Ok royce
I've seen it plenty times
i prefer not to live in the past tho ... was trying to lead the good people of dt to the light in future press conference scenarios
math a matix
he's absolutely the worst liar
tell her again
"it's got nothing to do with adjustments, it's about playing smarter & harder, for more consistent minutes" popavich
imagine the dt vitriol if brooks says that after a loss
i don't know man. i don't think lamb will make it in the nba. maybe tulsa
my analogy is just as stupid as basing your whole evaluation on your coach on what he did 2 seasons ago. more than likely my analogy is less stupid

that's the narrative. i think an unbiased fan may say that the thunder wasn't better than the heat.
but even still. that was 2 years ago. do you evaluate a college senior based on what they did on a final they took in their sophomore year? do you evaluate a 3d grader based on what they did in 1st grade?
yet his team has advanced. each & every time they were healthy
they haven't been playing the little sisters of the poor
brooks is constantly bashed for losing in the finals. the reality is his team has continued to win at a rate equal or better than any other elite team in the league. except for when they weren't full strength.
it was 2 years ago.
To say that them going from a team who loses by an average of 26 to one who wins going away - basically overnite - is only due to dedication or inspiration is further proof of failing to see the impact serge has on the game
6 months ago on The Forecast for May 26 – May 31: King Serge
Nope ... You're failing to understand perimeter defense.
ie Tony Allen is only effective a) if refs swallow the whistle b) because he has a 7' dpoy behind him ....
CP3 & Parker run through & around a myriad of screens EVERY possession. No guard can stay with those players on their own. They have the requisite quickness, ball handling & shooting ability (& passing ability) to expose the first hole or mismatch theses screens create. & they can attack the feet of every mismatch with consistent results - except serge (who btw is a 7' dpoy type)...
so to say he just covers for laziness or his impact is not also felt on the perimeter is not only false but unfair. To say they should be able to stay in front of their man, contest shots & fight through screens for entire possessions all game (while also having the entire offense on their shoulders) is oversimplification & hypothetical. & probably physically impossible against players like Parker & Ginobili without the assistance behind you.
not to mention he is their best mid range shooter.... & the release valve / safety blanket for a defense's extra attention on durant & Westbrook (& Reggie if he decides to stop dribbling long enough to pass)
liked for Ron!... You gotta put the Westbrook shirt 1 up...
Typo --- I hope you DON'T mean serges skill set is more easily replaced.. No one in the league has serges skill set
who's skill set is easier to replace? i hope you mean serges
this is the narrative & misconception I'm talking about ... it's not holes because of defensive laziness
smh. you guys are the best. watch write & comment on basketball every day & it takes you nearly 3 years to realize how immensely more important ibaka is than harden?... how vital ibaka is to the teams design? (especially considering they've all come up together, operating basically as 1 unit throughout their entire careers)... & thus, how a players presence can be just as necessary as teammates who are quote unquote better than him?....
just because 90% of dt totally & completely undervalued the impact & importance of serge to the team does not mean they showed a lack of self respect.
you guys didn't realize how vital serge was. so you blame the team for getting blown out.
not to mention the aspect of - just like last season - going to work with someone everyday for like say 5 years, then all of a sudden that person isn't beside you
they already basura
there's nothin really to lose!
you gotta give the man more credit than that damn
Edit: did Caron start game 7 vs Memphis ?
(c) me ... like 10 hours ago
olajuwon was a far better defender than shaquille
My apologies y'all talmbout russell
wcf normally dont
i can't. Peak dirk was amazing. peak mchale was like a 3d option
Edit :: & i mean no disrespect to mchale by that statement. dirk is just that good
Manu said himself it's hard for bench guys to play 30+ minutes. Last nite. Start him at your own risk
the only other player since mike to have as epic an individual run to the chip was 06 dwade. but all those FTs sully that
6 months ago on Monday Bolts – 5.26.14
feels like Shabazz will be better than some of those point guards pegged to go in front of him
I think Shabazz will be a very solid pro
Can't teach things like feel for the game & playing big in the biggest moments
