an look into what the Thunder need to do next season
1 week, 5 days ago on Thunder vs Pacers: Pregame Primer
@OKCDC I don't think we should. Adams is really good. Can't block shots like Jordan but can rebound, and run the floor good. he's better offensively. I don't think upgrading adams is what we need to be worried about
2 months, 3 weeks ago on The Side Part: Nike is evil
@d21 he should be
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#PissOffWaiters] @ Luke I really don't think he's terrible. I think he can drive and slash really well. Shoot from the outside, no, but even if he just stuck to what he is good at, brooks shouldn't play him that much. But that's not waiters fault. I don't think Morrow is that great either. Defensive liability, and can only shoot wide open, but we don't get people wide open because we don't move. It all falls on the coach
@[fire presti movement] he's had so many opportunities to get a good shooting guard in free agency. I remember Wesley Mathews right after Utah. aaron afflalo, monta ellis, andre iguodala, oj mayo. there were so many free agents, who wouldn't break the bank. Even if we kept Harden, still needed another wing. Not Fisher
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Thursday Bolts – 1.29.15
@Divine Mortal exactly. he is playing out of position. Another one of Brooks dumb strategy that didn't work.
@DVoegeli @[fire presti movement] I'm with you presti has missed out with free agency. but I think he did well with drafting. Even though I would have drafted curry instead of harden, he got ibaka, Jackson, adams, those well all good picks.
would anyone take perkins? the reason I say that is because if we could package him to get a competent 2 or a stretch 4, garnett might be available on waivers or released. he would be way better and a pickup. we wouldn't miss the backup center
@thelaughingwiseman I think we have already missed the ship. Sports moves so fast, you have to be proactive, and we aren't even reactive.
@Navidson @dwells is waiters better than Thomas? I think so. He's good for the 2nd unit. Problem is brooks plays him no matter what. Sometimes Jackson should be in and sometimes lamb should be, depending on who is playing well, and the matchup. but I think for what we gave up, he can be good for us. The coach is the main problem, but if waiters was to stick to driving and creating, that is what he is good at. an occasional outside shot, but he jacks it like he is durant
@L0rv @dwells lol I will look into changing that. I just think about content. This is my first blog, but many more will come
if we do this, if it's possible, the thunder would be set for years to come. considering Durant resigns.
@thelaughingwiseman trade to get a shooting guard, preferably Avery Bradley. Give up Jackson, that's not a huge loss. And get a stretch 4, best one available is Wilson chandler. After that, fire brooks. Hopefully we could keep lamb after those transactions, but I would expect him to be gone, and I can't blame lamb when he leaves. Even though he would still be the 10th man
this is the result of bad coaching. Terrible coaching. Every time we go against a team, especially in the playoffs, we are out coached.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on The Thunder bottom out in New York, 100-92
@seth_22 @dwells Weiss knows that game. I'm cool with him
@TanksThunder @dwells and half those lineups involve perkins
the reason we will never win with brooks is because against any good team we are handicapped 10 points. and it's hard to beat a good/playoff team by 10+ points four games
@sammasaaron @eallen7 we'll never win with brooks being a coach
@SeinfeldOKC Jason Kidd would have been a great coach for us.
@sammasaaron @SeinfeldOKC @dwells that's the only thing I've ever giver brooks credit for. How dumb was that to start Durant at the 2? he can't chase those guards around screens. What an idiot
@SeinfeldOKC @dwells yeah, he's 6'11''. what an idiot. He should have started him last year against the spurs when ibaka was hurt. but he starts collision and messes up the bench rotation and the starting. Only done by a reject coach
@L0rv that's our coach. and the dumbass offense we run
@SeinfeldOKC @dwells we definitely haven't used jones like that, which is his natural position anyways
@epicurean @dwells #1 he shouldn't be shooting that many 3's. #2, I'm talking about when we only have one big man in. Either Ibaka, or Adams. We need someone to play alongside Durant. Like Battier played next to Lebron
@epicurean @dwells who? Durant?
we still need to trade for Wilson chandler. stretch 4 right there. too easy
@KingGondo @dwells @epicurean 3-way deal? knicks need a pg. pistons might need a pg.
@Durants Shimmy kerr is a great coach, way better than brooks. he put iguodala off the bench, Jackson started him. that's a huge move. And they move the ball better this season. we need a great coach. I would go with Karl
@lolpeenus @dwells @epicurean no he's not. #1 he is one of the best defenders in the league. Moves well without the ball, which we need. And he is a good open shooter, so I don't know what else we want or need
@KingGondo @dwells it is, that's why I say go after avery Bradley, with whatever it takes
@epicurean we have the assets to go after avery Bradley. he's the best option. anyone on our roster besides ibaka, westbrook, Durant, adams,
who is a good shooting guard who plays defense that is available?
@Perk has a lot of value anything not firing brooks is bad. He always messes up matchups, bad offense, what does he do good
@SeinfeldOKC that would be terrible if we hired d'antoni.
@KingGondo the hawks have sefalosha, even though he isn't a huge role. the point is their offense gives everyone a chance. I really still don't know who and who can't play with us because we don't give them a chance. I know perkins is trash, jones is inconsistent, but he should have been given chances the last 2 years, we would know a lot better if he can really play or not by now. I think lamb is decent, can definitely hit open shots.
with our iso offense, we don't give guys a chance to do anything but usually force jumpers
@SeinfeldOKC if we trade for chandler, he is a stretch four who can guard and shoot. Since we didn't want to bring jeff green back
@Durants Shimmy I completely agree. Our movement, setting screens, running any type of offense that gets our guys open looks, that's all the coach's fault. In transition we are fine, that doesn't take coaching
@KingGondo who's spamming? I'm attempting to shed some light. Some of yall idiots think brooks is still a good coach. I would love this to gain some traction and presti would try this, or some combo of this. If u call that spamming. . . .
we need to try, I don't think getting lopez is the answer. I really like Stephen adams. he has 20/20 talent
and it might work in a 3-way trade. Someone like the knicks could really use Jackson. group a draft pick and throw away salary for Bradley. No one is untradeable. Bradley is nice, but he isn't untradeable
They might not trade Bradley, but we need to try, and if we can't get him, next best is lance Stephenson. We have to get a better two guard. Since Presti was asleep at the wheel when we could have signed monta ellis, iguodala, oj mayo, or any other good two guard the last 2-3 years
@Slim Reaper (#ThisIsAllOnPresti) I'm saying, whatever the combination (and perkins has a little value with a team looking to dump salary) they traded prince for Green. Is that value?
@Slim Reaper (#ThisIsAllOnPresti) I don't think we gave up anything for Waiters, and we needed a scorer off the bench. Should he play as much as he is? No, that's brooks fault, but he is a slasher and creator. We need that, especially coming off the bench
to sum it up, we need Avery Bradley, and Wilson Chandler. Bradley would be the perfect compliment to Westbrook, and he could also play backup pg, assuming Jackson is dealt in the trade. Roberson could be a backup to Durant, which is his natural position
I wrote a blog citing our best trade options. Even though I fully think/know that even if these trades got made, brooks still needs to be fired. There is just no way around that, but if we make two trades, we could be right there for a championship again.
@chandler bing. You can sigh all you want, doesn't change anything. We have a terrible coach. And he keeps making excuses about people being hurt. If everyone is hurt, it's even more reason to play better offense, but we don't. Offense looks almost the same as the last 5 years. We have 3 top 20 players, that's talent, not the coach
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Bolts – 11.5.14
@okcjim. Are you saying we have a good coach? What I'm saying is, it doesn't matter if we have everyone. We still don't execute, and against a good team, they will beat us
@okcjim we hit shots against the nuggets. No good offenze should be based on whether they make shots, it should be the quality of shots. We take bad shots, some nights we make more than typical, but for the coach to consistently allow this, he needs to go
