@f5alcon Really? You been outside recently? OK is no Florida but come on now, it's not exactly a motorcycling mecca is it? I'm from NM, relatively speaking NM is no pacific northwest, california or colorado for street riding but we have almost no law enforcement in the northern part of the state. Same thing for MX tracks, kinda booty here, but we have endless amounts of open terrain to explore. Just being objective is all, if you want to make a case for OK, let's talk about the size of house you get for a certain amount of money or how well you get paid relative to cost of living. For some those two things are king, not me though.

@Landstander Sorry to hear about all the crap places you've had to live. Personally, I like mountains a lot, so none of those places are overly appealing to me. Denver gives you the illusion of mountain fun but the reality is it's always an hour or two away if you live in the city. I'm just talking trash, the people in OK are awesome but the actual place is freaking boring as hell for a guy that likes what I do. Motorcycle riding, snowboarding, mountain biking etc... I have no allegiance to OK, I'm a holdover from the Supersonic days that didn't live in the Northwest so I wasn't butt hurt when they moved. I'll root for this team if they move to Norfolk, Virginia. The league pass doesn't care.
@BallSoHard http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bz5p2ly This is almost what it would feel like to find out your job just moved to Oklahoma. Not quite OKC, I quite like OKC, more like Ponka City or Bartlesville.
@BallSoHard @wudmonster Good memory. You must eatsleepbreathThunder, Oh wait, different guy. My bad. In the grand world of worst places to live, Oklahoma ain't bad at all, in the grand world of places I really want to live, Oklahoma ain't so great. I've traveled and seen more of Oklahoma than most people from the state, people are friendly and polite, it has the cultural diversity of a bag of wonder bread though. I'll take your suggestion though since it'll be easier to comprehend.
I will trade watching Thunder games on TV and not living in Oklahoma over live games any day. Just saying!
@<--Not About Dat Lyfe Did I say defend? No. Did I say abuse anyone down low? Yes. As in, no one can stop him down low. Clear enough?

12 months ago on Hornets vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@<--Not About Dat Lyfe ????? That's exactly what he's been doing for the last two years. You watch any games of his? Range out beyond the the point line and he can finish on the block with either hand. Any one in the league that could slow him down on the block surely wouldn't like to follow him out to three point range and leave kd down low one on one. Basketball involves strategy and tactics which are dictated by the pieces involved. KD, Russ and Love on one side of the floor would be easy points if guarded straight up or wide open shots for the other two players if they doubled. Ibaka and Martin don't do that for us now.
@ZachCollums IMO it's a no brainer. OK could throw in some picks to sweeten the pot and start saving for ring display cases for the homes. If you project Miami as the team okc will have to beat the next two or three years to win, I can't dream up a better way to match up against them. It would take advantage of their weak interior d without comprising okc's ability to match up on d.
@<--Not About Dat Lyfe @Tronchaser @MisterJohnsonOKC Basketball is a game of match ups, big lineups love could stretch the floor for Westbrook and Durant because of his outside shooting, small line ups he could abuse any one in the league down low, including bosh and lebron.
@ZachCollums Martin is a stop gap and on the last year OKC can afford a fourth guy making 10+ mil, Ibaka gets a 10 mil raise next year. He just would be filler salary because of the disparity between Ibaka and Love's contracts. Same with Jj. He does bring championship experience though.
@OBoy Jones III @justin_mia http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a5ap344
Thought about it for a few more minutes. http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a5ap344 Do it, do it now!
@SolidLenin8 http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a5ap344 that's how you make it happen, some picks too.
@ZachCollums Love couldn't play center against bosh? We wouldn't have Sefalosha to match up with wade? Kd and westbrook don't drive the lane? Ibaka guards stretch fours well now? Kd and Westbrook don't dominate on the post now? I'm not sure where you're going with half your points, but I do know that no one can guard either lebron or kd, westbrook is better than wade as of this moment and love would man handle bosh on the blocks and be an even better rebounder and outside shooter than Ibaka both now and down the road. I'll give up some help d for unstoppable offense and a roster that could take advantage of any mismatch given to them from any where on the court.
@ou_sas My bad. Realistic options. I forgot that one critical word.
@ZachCollums Who does Miami have down low to defend? No one is debating whether Love could replace Ibaka on D, the answer is obvious. The question is who could stop the Thunder? Love is better than average on D and wouldn't be some monumental drop off from Ibaka. On the other end of the floor it would absolutely be a monumental shift in options though. Most of your arguments were the same ones levied towards Miami last year too. Just saying.
@ou_sas nor am I a jj fan. See if you can get other options to work.
@ZachCollums I could care less about projections. What were the projections on the Lakers roster this year ? You gotta give something up to get something. Westbrook, Durant and Love would be unstoppable and would blow Miami's big three away, who happen to be "projected" to win this years title. Martin's a rental what better way to get great value for him? Unless you believe he'll resign for 7-8 mill next year.
