I don't have a favorite candidate to replace Brooks. I do think that the folks arguing for Mark Jackson and Mike D'Antoni are nuts.

@OKC035 If they're at all concerned about defense, d'antoni will get nowhere near this team.
5 days, 8 hours ago on Thunder fire Scott Brooks
@duhsweetness Neither do most of the rest of us. But we have a comment thread to fill up with freakouts and apocalyptic declarations. Ya gotta hold up your end of the bargain!
@We Lost to Dallas 3x *Tvaddic* Bayless probably thinks that the Thunder didn't make the playoffs this year because Russ _still_ took more shots than KD. ;-)
@We Lost to Dallas 3x *Tvaddic* Suddenly I like Brooks more than I did before....
@Beny95 My guess is he at least ran the idea by Durant first (if he didn't, Presti deserves all the shit he's been getting about the Harden trade and more). But I'm not convinced that KD initiated the move. Then again, that sort of thing happens. That's how Doug Collins got fired by the Bulls.
Especially since he won't be asked to win any NCAA tournament games ;-)
5 days, 11 hours ago on Wednesday Bolts – 4.22.15
So I take it that Perk will be the next head coach? ;-)
@PKThunder @PostBeardStressDisorder As long as the Rockets and the Clips don't go far, I'll be reasonably satisfied.
1 week, 4 days ago on Thunder eliminated from the 2015 playoffs
What a memorable but infuriating season. I have great hopes for next year. In the meantime, I hope that the Dubs win it this year. They deserve it.
Sometime in the middle of the first quarter last night, two things finally clicked for me:
1) This team is not making the playoffs.
2) That's probably a good thing.
Took me a long time to come around, but now I have.

@66 Players Had 32 pts This Year PJ3 Suxs *Tvaddic* The fact that Duncan is still playing at the level he's playing at is also insane. He's a little like Hank Aaron in that way (I'm actually old enough to have seen Aaron play). Aaron never hit fifty home runs in a season. He just hit between 30 and 47 home runs every single season between 1957 and 1973. To keep playing at a top level that long is really incredible.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thursday Bolts – 4.2.15
@sammasaaron @PostBeardStressDisorder Fair enough. Guess I don't really agree with Berry Tramel. Phew. Order is restored to the universe.
@sammasaaron @PostBeardStressDisorder Of course the other factor is we're not getting KD back before the end of the season, while we just might get Ibaka back for the last week (and the playoffs).
@YoniK Thanks! Chag sameach!
@okcjim @PostBeardStressDisorder There are degrees of suckitude. Remember, if we had given up 120 points last night, we would have won comfortably.
@sammasaaron @PostBeardStressDisorder That, too, of course.
Much as I hate to write these words, I agree with Berry Tramel. Ibaka is the most important missing piece at the moment. With him playing and (dare I say it) Roberson available, we would have won last night's game handily.
@KingGondo It's not a great draft afaict. That's one of the reasons why I'm not in favor of tanking. (The others being: playoff experience for Kanter and the other young players and MOAR GAMES for me to watch.)
Major sports journalists saying things like "nothing will be settled until KD signs his next contract" is a self-fulfilling prophecy. This will stay a story until a contract is signed because the media wants it to be a story. There may be other reasons for its being a story, but that's sufficient to keep it going.

At this point I'm not sure what I'm hoping for from the rest of the season....other than no more games like that. After last night, I'd even settle for being swept by the Dubs, provided none of the loses are by more than fifteen points.

Not if you think we should tank ;-)
Read Royce's post-game report ^^^^^
1 month ago on Spurs stomp the Thunder, 130-91
"'I don’t think of my [expletive deleted] level,' Brooks said. 'We were 9-3 for the month going into this game. We have been playing great basketball and have had a lot of great games, more so on the offensive end. We have to get better defensively, but I don’t think [expletive deleted] is the right word. We need improvement and we need it quickly.'"
@CjEasyMoney$(THUNDER) Also missing Nick (veteran leadership) and Roberson (D)

@ThunderFanInMD This is the kind of game where I'm also missing Nick.
We've had basically one really bad game in the last 20 or so (that blowout loss to the Clips). These games happen. SA with nobody sitting is always tough. With Serge and Roberson gone, they're a matchup nightmare for us. And, of course, no KD.
The Dubs would score 130 points against this team....in the first half.
Parker is on fire.
Gotta love Pop rippin' the Spurs after the Knicks game.
Who's that number 35 guy playing for the Thunder in that credit card ad?
I like SA's old school organ!

@Chandler Bing #TearsOfJoy @PostBeardStressDisorder Byron Mullens!
@Thunder_Blue @PostBeardStressDisorder ESPN just said he was as if it were an extraordinary thing that this is the case.
Can anyone doubt that Kanter is the best offensive big man the Thunder have had? I mean, who else is even in the conversation.
@MJOKC's alt account One of the few occasions that I'm ok with that.
@d_m_free No. Because Brooks sits Kanter and plays Perk.
@harmlesslyfatal [[#RW0 4 MVP]] @mrichards86 He noticed the Thunder logo on his uniform and determined that it was time to twist his ankle.

The waitress in this Fowler commercial looks like Oklahoma's First Daughter.
@OBoy (LaFamilia) "Masterpiece of Jackasses" is a great band name.
I liked the Kanter pick up, but he's so totally exceeded my expectations. Such a great fit on this team, too.
Perfect ending to that half. You knew that Russ was going to take that three. And it's just perfect that he missed it and Kanter got the put back.
Novak seems to be a plus version of Singler.
Have we just had terrible luck in officiating recently? Seems like we've had a number of games with just ridiculous calls. And that Dallas game, the refs just totally lost control of things.
@beelieve035 ...and nice charge drawn, too.
BS....but stfu, Dion.
Losing to the Pelis today is one of the few things that could make me hate the Clips more than I already do.
These uniforms are so ugly. Every time they've worn them, I think "they can't really have put the name on the back there!!"...but they did.
