I don't know which was more painful to watch - the third quarter or every second of Derek Fisher's court time.
2 years ago on Nuggets outgun the Thunder, 114-104
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Shawn Marion did say that KD would never make that shot on him again.
2 years, 2 months ago on Behind 52 from KD, OKC survives in Dallas, 117-114
KD gave the Mavs 52 reasons to hate him.
I think so far this season, this was the hardest Thunder game to watch.
The fact that I watched it via YES Network (The Nets Home Network, I'm from New Jersey) also may have made it worse.
2 years, 2 months ago on Thunder lose their cool late against the Nets, 110-93
@Sigmund It was a warning shot.
2 years, 2 months ago on Thunder smoke the Rockets a second time, 124-94
Any discernible reason why Russell Westbrook's shooting has been so bad this season?
@MisterJohnsonOKC Looks like he made a strong bid for LVP this season.
@RRRWHATEVER There would be an article on ESPN everyday talking about how KD, Westbrook, and Ibaka can't play together.

@RRRWHATEVER This comment was as un-politically correct as it was hilarious.
@Old Man Game @OBoy Jones III I guess I don't watch enough NBA TV. And that one almost had me 6 feet under in laughter
2 years, 3 months ago on OKC wakes up in time to slide past Indy, 104-93
@OBoy Jones III @Old Man Game Are there any more JaVale videos from this season? I watched all the ones from last season and before.
On Westbrooks Shot Selection -> I get the sense that Russell Westbrook thinks a lot more about the desired end result - a bucket - instead of contemplating the best possible path to reach the end result. This results in well... you all know.
2 years, 3 months ago on Westbrook and Durant help OKC overpower the Lakers, 114-108
@StretchNeuron @dream catcher I don't know. I think it'll be less consistently.
@StretchNeuron @dream catcher It's in Russell Westbrook's nature to make every few shots a heat check - even when he's lukewarm to cold.
@loplopol I understood it. Now that I think it, I know his tunnel vision has led to a turnover or two because he was trying to make the pass when the shot was right there.
@OBoy Jones III If this is true, then I have greatly overestimated Kobe's ability to play mind games.
@loplopol There's something about his body language that just makes it very clear that he's not driving to score. It's almost annoying because I have 3-4 moments running through my head when he he had a good shot but he was pressing so hard to create that he passed them up.
@dream catcher Yeah, but part of what makes his pull up so hard to make is also what makes it so hard to guard - he has a lot of speed before he decides to pull up. I don't think he'll ever clock in a spectacular % from any mid range spot on the court for this very reason.
Anybody else notice the sort of tunnel vision Kevin Durant gets whenever he's looking to get an assist?
@dream catcher While the contrast between "on" and "off" is slowly decreasing, I don't ever think it will be "automatic".
@bmuelle21 @ThunderStruck2412 I think Steve Nash was a bigger improvement over Dwight Howard, but both are good pick ups for them regardless. They'll be tougher this year, no doubt.
2 years, 7 months ago on How does Dwight Howard to the Lakers impact the Thunder?
@ThunderCityUsa ...But we have Harden...therefore our bench is better!
@EatSleepThunder @OBoymuzik Maybe if KD whips out the bookbag out of the vault and wears a Spiderman Tee, he could pass as an 8 year old.
@bmuelle21 @ThunderStruck2412 Valid point, but since Serge/Collison will be guarding Pau closer to the basket than Ryan Anderson out at the 3 point line, I think .................... that this is something we'll just have to wait and see about...hahaha.
@bmuelle21 @ThunderStruck2412 Yeah, but the way he gets those points in the paint is slightly different, because it was more reliant on putbacks and alley oops than actual back to the basket buckets.
@ThunderCityUsa Lets not forget Eric Maynor is coming back, and PJ3 probably will be a mainstay on the Bench for OKC as well. That team can run circles around Antwan Jamison and Steve Blake.
@JimboSlice I didn't say his post game was non existent, I said it was a resemblance, as in he gets it done in the post once in a while. He'll get his points on alley oops and put backs regardless, but I'm still pretty much a non believer in his post game.
@bmuelle21 True. What about spacing though? Didn't Orlando have Dwight on an island in the half court offense?
Dwight Howard makes the Lakers more athletic in the front court, but I do think people forget that he is a downgrade of sorts in a half court offense due to his bare resemblance of a post game. This whole Nash-Kobe-Pau-Dwight team will need time to gel as well, and with Mike Brown at the reigns, I'm sure it'll take longer than necessary.
That being said, I agree with the outlook that the Lakers are more of a threat, but not exactly a shoe in for the Championship. We can't overlook the Olympic experience our players are getting, and if Serge goes to train with The Dream, and Perry Jones plays like a Lotto pick in a deep draft, PLUS if Eric Maynor returns in good form, (A lot of "ifs", I know), I don't see why we wouldn't be able to handle them accordingly.
