How easy would it be to get him?
1 year, 5 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Russ vs. KD
What are your thoughts on Al-Farouq Aminu?
I agree, but I was too lazy to look for other versions
@Sigmund @SexyWatt No way is Orlando giving up DeQuan Jones!
Yes, but all the wi-fi accessible spots are not buffalo accessible.
Yeah, it's hard to find wi-fi in the rolling praries.
Warning, crazy trade that will never happen.
Here I am!!!
Milwaukee wouldn't like it, but I love that idea. Kanter is someone I like, and I love LMAM for us.
With the trade deadline nearing, what are our needs? I'm thinking an experienced defender to throw at LeBron (LMAM) or a young big man to use in the future and can contribute as a backup now (Valanciunas). I think we probably stand pat, but trade ideas are always fun.
1 year, 5 months ago on The Thunder smoke the Suns, 127-96
I really like Jonas Valancunas.
1 year, 5 months ago on Suns vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Scenario: Presti sees Lamb in practice/D-League and knows he can help us, but some changes must be made. He also realizes we need a bigger body to throw at LeBron, Carmelo, etc. He comes up with this.
We also get immediately better at backup Center and a chance at redemption for the Aldrich experiament. The question then is is Lamb, LRMAM, and Val better overall production than K-Mart? Probably not, but worth considering.
1 year, 5 months ago on TGR 90: Russell Westbrook and Royal Jelly
1 year, 5 months ago on Thunder at Cavaliers: Pregame Primer
Russell Westbrook's final college season:
12.7ppg, 46.5 FG%, 33.8 3FG%, 71.3 FT%, 4.3 APG, 3.9 RPG, 1.6 Steals, 0.2 Blocks
Marcus Smart this year:
13.6 PPG, 41.9 FG%, 30.1 3FG%, 76.2 FT%, 4.6 APG, 5.6 RPG, 2.8 Steals, 0.8 Blocks.
@ThunderChick2010 6-1. We can beat all of those teams except Phoenix, because they beat the now-back Lakers and must be awesome.
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars @OBoy Jones III I think we are thinking of the same somebody...
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars Well, I guess I'm over-exaggerating. The guy said it was off him before the ref made the call.
Does any one remember that "honesty: pass it on" commercial where the kid tells the ref that the ball went off him in a close game? I've always made fun off that commercial, but I just saw someone do it in real life.
@Old Man Game All that combined with his defense, playmaking, and character. He really seems like the perfect Presti player to me.
@Old Man Game Smart's best game yet. He willed the team to victory with those offensive put-backs.
@Old Man Game @see-mittens Forte is also stronger and faster, but I think the biggest difference is his defense. It is much better than Page's.
1 year, 5 months ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Tinman
@see-mittens @Old Man Game He MIGHT be able to dunk on an 8 ft nerf goal.
@Old Man Game @see-mittens Forte is more athletic.
@Tequila or Failure I don't think Presti likes soft posts(aka. Nenad)

@Barry Amenema But that may make Brooks a target for Termination.
Sefolosha does so much in transition.
@Dicharden I knew Russ was a robot, but a mine-dispensing robot? That takes Terminating to another level.

@ EatSleepThunder @gaZBO Does he troll on other boards?
@gaZBO nice pickup with John Leur.

@ERROR72 @jeffori Point Guard
@DSYIII I think he's always about 6'10"
If I was guarding Ibaka in the post, I would just set my feet on his side closest to the paint. That is his only, but effective, back to the basket move
Can someone enlighten me on what the question of the game was?
Did anyone else hear Brian Davis say Lavoy Allen is a rookie?
@cemitten What Atlanta fans?
1 year, 7 months ago on Thunder vs. Hawks: Pregame Primer
But seriously how do we get better on D?
1 year, 7 months ago on Pacers vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
How are we a middle of the road defensive team? We should be pretty good at D with Thabo, Serge, and Mayn.... hmmm, nevermind.
We're undefeated as a franchise when scoring over 100 and holding the opponent under 100 points
I don't think thats a real link, its not long enough.
Hasheem Thabeet with a double double against the Bobcats.
1 year, 7 months ago on Westbrook punctuates OKC’s 114-69 blowout of the Bobcats
Tough decision though. They both do things so well. Hasheem scored, rebounded, and played defense. Perk, uh, had 2 assists?
1 year, 7 months ago on Bobcats vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer

@DJ Scott Brooks aka jdstorm
More like, "That dunk was selfish, if he passes that to KD they win by 80."
I'm pretty sure Hakeem the dream never had as many people talking about his regular season game as Hasheem the Dream has today.
Luke Walton makes Perk look underpaid. Walton is being paid 6 mil> to average 0.5 ppg, 0.5 rpg, and 0.0 apg in 7.5 minutes a game.

@Lost Ones @sexywatt @justin_mia
Is Omri Cassipi any good for us?
@Lost Ones @senseandsenescence @justin_mia
Chase Budinger is extremely cheap, but i don't know how we'd get him
You're telling me you wouldn't want to pay Arron Afflalo 7.5 mil?
Of course I'm joking.
Detroit. So not really.
Mbah a moute?
Not a huge fan but I'm just throwing names out there
I'd be okay with that.
Serge is a pretty much unanimous positive also i think.
Crazy but true.
@Lost Ones @justin_mia
I'll take the guy with experience who is a good defender and has shown can consistently knock down shots over the guy who has none of the above.
CP3 disagrees with you
@Lost Ones @sexywatt @Legendary_Dork @justin_mia
True but you can stagger rotations so that there is always 1 or 2 of your best guys (top six) on the court.
It is terrible what they do to fans though! They are in the game and usually winning late in the 4th quarter until...they lose.
I know what you mean, life is so hard when your DVR is backed up.
Jones has very high potential, but he did have games like that at Baylor. He would alternate from 24 points to 5 points nightly.
Has there ever been a worse Monday Night Football game than tomarrow? The 2-8 Panthers take on the 3-7 Eagles, who are without their starting quarterback and runningback. Should be a nail-biter!
Hey, I'm a Carolina Panthers fan. Thats pretty hard to beat.
Thats it. Same thing happens to Lost Ones link. Thanks.
I wasn't paying attention and i clicked something that took me to a kind of funny page about trolling. What did I click?
@OBoy Jones III
I know this was aimed at Lin, but I always liked Livingston. Where is he now?
1 year, 8 months ago on OKC finds the range in OT against Philly, 116-109
@MisterJohnsonOKC @Lost Ones @El Prez
I agree, but who gives us anything better?
@El Prez @Lost Ones
I think we just stand pat when it comes to trades, but which contributor do we give up if we do make a trade? I don't want to trade anybody save Maynor and possibly Perk, but who else would we trade?
@MisterJohnsonOKC @Lost Ones
I wouldn't want to, but to take you gotta give. I don't know who we would trade that would get us a really useful return.
What return are we thinking about? I've heard names like Gortat, Varejeo, etc. but I don't see Collison+Pick giving us any names like that.
Who would we have to trade to get someone useful in return? I know Maynor and Perk are the most obvious, but I don't see any team trading their vending machine for those two. What do we have to include? Would Jones/Lamb and/or Toronyo Pick do it? Or would we have to include someone like Thabo, Nick, or Martin/Ibaka?
@MisterJohnsonOKC @Tronchaser @Old Man Game
My point was about defensive recruits. It is the big 12, sure a few players will come, but the big defensive playmakers will go to the SEC
Whats even funnier than that is two straight 500 yard games given up by the Big 12's "best" defense.
@Old Man Game @MisterJohnsonOKC
@Old Man Game @MisterJohnsonOKC
They wasnt succesful defense and NFL futures, things much more abundant in the SEC than in the Big 12
@Tronchaser @Old Man Game @MisterJohnsonOKC
Your right, but my point is maybe those teams as a whole weren't good enough to win it all. I understand the frustration with Jones, but I think the problem lies on the defense, like every big 12 team.
@Old Man Game @MisterJohnsonOKC @Tronchaser
I wish Icould like this 10 times.
@Old Man Game @Tronchaser
My theroy is that these past couple years OU's expectations were so high that when they weren't met, the fanbase looked for issues(much like we DTers do) Landry was the qb, which made him the biggest target, made even bigger by his tendancy to make bad decisions here and there.
No one ever has. The big 12 systems favor qbs, and if a qb is coming to OU he was a top recruit. I bet Bell will do fine, he's already better than half the qbs in the big 12 (next year). I just don't know how you can lose a big-time senior qb like that and expect an upgrade at the position.
@MisterJohnsonOKC @Old Man Game @Tronchaser
Of course, I'm just saying he hasn't proved he is better than Landry. Maybe he will be, but I never said it was better that Landry came back. He is a great qb and I've never understood the sooner fans (the minority) who already think Bell is better than Landry.
Your right, and I must say the few sooner fans who think Landry sucks and can't wait for Blake Bell full time are in for a rude awakening
It was a good game, just sad to see my cowboys lose after winning the whole game. Oh well, at least the Thunder won in OT right?
Dislike for "awesome OT win in Norman."
Its a lot cooler than riding a Camry, no?
You forgot maynor, martin, and defense.
@FF_pickups @OBoy Jones III @supreme35
Just because our stars are doing great does'nt mean our bench can't score effectivly
How many points did the bench score yesterday?
Though this is true, it doesn't solve any of our current problems. We are lacking in bench scoring. I don't see how this group with MKG in place of K-Mart scores any more.
Because MKG is a much better scorer against playoff teams than K-Mart.
Can we not just chalk some of it up to it being his first month or two ever playing on this very successfull basketball team? Give him time to gel with the players. I don't care if he plays badly in a regular season win as long as he is more involved in post-season success
lol at Lamb baaaaaaing in the background.
@Old Man Game
@TonyMitchellForPresident13 @Barry Amenema @Old Man Game
But we will win it all, so forget all of our problems.
We don't even need a good coach, we just need the second-coming of Bill Russell!
@Barry Amenema @Old Man Game
Oh and Erik Spolestra. Thats an easy one
Problem solved! Fire Brooks and hire Pop! I should be a GM.
How many coaches have won an NBA Championshiip within 3 years of being on a team? I would really like to know this, because I have no idea.
Yesterday I made a comment about Nick Collison's lack of productivity, and I am happy to say he shoved it right back in my face tonight.
The coaching staff is also responsible for drawing up plays for him. But Martin does need to be more assertive.
Or so you thought...
1 year, 8 months ago on Thunder vs. Sixers: Pregame Primer
I love Collison just as much as the next guy, but I feel like his play was heavily dependent on Harden and he was the single player hurt most by the trade. He is not performing up to his standards. Can Collison and Martin/Thabeet create similar chemistry as the year progresses? That would improve the bench significantly.
1 year, 8 months ago on OKC's bench gets worked in Boston, 108-100
Why of course he is! He just got some "bad advice."
@Skyline @Old Man Game
I don't think K-Mart will have very many outputs as poor as this one.
I think a lot of this is due to Maynor not 100%, either mentally or physically.
But that was when he was coming off injury ala Maynor. I don't think Maynor is 100% but I do think he will be a nice backup again this year. But he isn't ready now. Play Jackson untill he is, then let Maynor do his thing.
My only question is if maynor isn't 100%, why not play Jackson? Worst case scenario is Jackson plays no better than maynor, but best case is a difference-maker for the bench.
@Lost Ones @SergeIblocka @Royce Young
But isn't Paul having one of his worst games a testament to us?
Not a fan of the Clippers game?
He's better than some -ahem- one, of our starters.
1 year, 8 months ago on Thunder vs. Celtics: Pregame Primer
So he must be a baller...
If it means anything, I have his rating up to 75 on 2k12 The Association.
He was threading the needle on some passes inside the paint
"I don't always play, but when i do, i drop triple-doubles."
DeAndre Liggins with a triple double for Tulsa, didn't realize he could pass like that.
@WeTalkinBoutSacrifices? @Lost Ones Practice
1 year, 8 months ago on Practice Report: Thabeet is on
My favorite part is when Brian is about to take the half-court shot and the timeout guy proceeds to ask where he is from. Brian responds with "Oklahoma." and then the guy went on like that was normal. The thunder fan at the OKC game was from Oklahoma? who knew?

@dancassidy35/FreeFestusFromGSW! Love C.J Leslie.
1 year, 11 months ago on Does a James Harden trade make sense?
With all of the Harden trade talks, it seems like people think serge will be on the team for sure. I feel like he will be, but an Ibaka sign and trade is just as plausible if not more so than a Harden sign and trade.
@Jooseppi Definitely not. Im crazy, but not THAT much

Who gave Bill Simmons permission to talk about sports? It was a mistake.
2 years ago on Monday Bolts - 7.23.12
I think that the rebounding was a product of his motor. When I watched him, he was very content to sit at the high post and shoot jump-shots
2 years ago on Thunder select Perry Jones III with the 28th pick
he isnt as strong as Josh, and is much more of a finesse player.
bad idea, dont let a member of Portlands medical staff near our players
So was westbrooks foul, but the game wasnt his fault. I doubt westbrook does that again, just like I doubt Brooks makes these coaching errors again
2 years ago on Report: Thunder offer Scott Brooks four-year deal
Sure it was, and Perkins should have been locked in a closet with no basketballs or round objects of any kind, but we all proclaimed Brooks a genius after the spurs series. The series was not Brooks fault
Give Brooks another shot. our team has improved every year with him at the helm. If you think Brooks lost us the finals, than look closer and you'll see that Mario Chalmers and Shane battier outplayed James harden. were there coaching errors? Sure, but if our team is in the same position next year and we win, did Brooks win it for us?
@Grolgar I agree, and Brooks has improved every year. If we want to get rid if Brooks for his imperfect coaching, we might as well get rid of westbrook for his imperfect play
@Prye05 something had to save me from Oklahoma State basketball
2 years ago on Thursday Bolts - 6.28.12
@okcjim ibaka has already proven he can play at a high level in the NBA. he is also much more athletic than Robinson
I want to trade down to get Kyle o'quinn. He is a big with good defensive instincts. And you no what the best part is? He can catch a basketball
I don't want Royce. He was my favorite player in college, and I watched a lot of his games, but his skill set doesn't fit our team. He is best paired with spot up shooters, which we don't have. The man can't shoot.
@criznazy53 more athletic than daequan. But yes, harden is much better
2 years ago on Thunder have talked about moving up to get Bradley Beal
@Grolgar from what I've seen, beal is athletic for his position. if he has the work ethic, he can evolve into a really good player. That being said, I definitely wouldn't trade up to get him
@Grolgar with the one and dones, teams are drafting for potential, not necessarily production. Mkg didn't put up numbers.
This won't happen. If we want to take away our chances of winning a title next year, this is a good move. Otherwise, presti is devising someway to get a good deal from this false information
Has anybody talked about trading down to get a player like Kyle o'quinn or Jared Cunningham + assets?

I love Royce White, but if people think he will be that stretch 4 that can shoot, he's not. I would rather have nick collison taking jumpers than Royce, but his post moves are cat-like. However, he is not Boris Diow
