@DVoegeli also one of the best at creating space for his other teammates simply from the threat of his shot. he doesn't look like most other all stars (ie, shot creator) but korver's really really good at what he does...probably the best in the league. he deserves to be there imo.

prob already been posted but:
Alvin Gentry to KNBR: "I would love to coach again. Obviously that's what my goal would be, but if it didn't happen that would be OK also."
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Week in Review: It’s Russ and Kevin’s world
@00000000 i agree, but his composure related to his decision making is something that deserves to be critiqued. and that's not picking on him, the same could be said for every player, especially one with as much responsibility as russ.
it also should be said that we don't know how much of this is by design by the team/brooks. and ifso, if russ's uneven play could be balanced by possibly limiting his green light too. it should all be open for discussion imo. that's part of getting better.
3 weeks ago on Thunder vs Nuggets: Pregame Primer
@OKCDC it's the end of days. everyone call your parents and tell them you love them
@Chandler Bing. yeah, he's having a great statistical year. but i'm more interested in how those stats translate to winning games/rings.
one thing i think is frustrating about russ is his ability to regress, and regress hard. most good players improve with their decision making as they gain more experience. it's not always linear but it's generally an upward trend. and russ has gotten better, incrementally. but where other players have bad quarters or a bad game or two, he has long stretches. not sure what can be done about that, but yeah, it's annoying.

3 weeks ago on Steven Adams out three weeks: Five big questions
@00000000 russ's fierce competitiveness is what makes him great. but whenever he puts on blinders, it's hard for our team because he's the guy with the ball most of the time. i wonder what effort the team has put in place to get him to be more even keeled (or if that's impossible).
@_justin lowry/johnson is interesting though. pretty much anyone else in russ's class is either un-gettable (curry/harden) or worse, individually.
if you were to recreate the roster to maximize russ's effectiveness, how would you do it?
@_justin i mean, our roster is weak regardless. and if you're proposing a russ trade because that's the ONLY way to upgrade our roster, then i'd be more inclined to agree with you.
but there are other changes that can be made first before throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
i agree russ probably has the most variance in play of any top 10 player. and that it's something that could completely derail a playoff run. but i'd also like to see how he'd play in a more structured system before more drastic movies, because elite talent is rare.
we know what to expect when he has the green light. maybe his more destructive tendencies could be curbed if he was put in a tony parker like role.
not seeing how abrines is gonna keep up with anyone on d. he's like rudy fernandez...after he broke his back. we could use his 3 pt shooting though
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Wednesday Bolts – 2.4.15
@ODBNZ if nick is getting 4 million per, i don't want to think about how much steven is gonna get
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Thunder sign Nick Collison to a multi-year extension
@YOLOperk @yarkmu @RMark50c if it goes down. that said, im still for it. just to see something different. not expecting anything with this team as constructed anyway
@RMark50c yeah im not convinced it'll do anything huge. still an upgrade, but midseason trades hardly ever work out the way fans want/imagine
wonder if we considered gerald green at all before opting for waiters
@KingGondo @Chandler Bing. @propsizzle also, it's disingenuous to hide behind golden state turning harden down as a sign of james not being worth it. it was never a one for one deal. they were interested in trading him for klay, but they also wanted us to take on biedrins or richard jefferson on top of that trade. that would've been a horrible trade for us under those conditions given our budget constraints.
washington was set on drafting beal, and they've benefitted by having beal for more years on a cheap contract than harden would've cost them. beal's no where near to harden today (and back then as well), but at the time, you could see why washington might have preferred a low cost alternative.
@KingGondo @propsizzle @Chandler Bing. at least two other teams were prepared to offer him the max -- phoenix and houston. people might not have expected him to be a mvp candidate, but there were plenty of suitors willing to make that bet. we should have known better than any other team. it's inexcusable.
@Douse em WAITERADE feel a little bit better now, thanks. if you're a big who can tie his shoes and run without tripping too much, you're going to get overpaid.
kd dropping albums on chris palmer. needs to get in the studio and put this on wax (just kidding please don't kd, you're an amazing basketball player but awful rapper)
@OBoy (LaFamilia) BURNNNNNNN
@Lost Ones he rushed back instead of sitting out for a full year. lead to more injuries/incomplete recovery.
@Lost Ones derrick rose
what are the pacers thinking, bringing paul george back this year
can't believe im saying this but i wish we'd dealt for jr smith instead of waiters
@Divine Mortal who cares about doctors? this org's all about values
perry jones extension incoming
@Honor1God you're corny
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW yeah that was sarcastic.. im all for tanking.
i appreciate presti's signaling this season's a punt, early on. saves me the trouble of getting emotionally invested in a first round exit. it's a polite thing to do
@d21 @Perk has a lot of value trying to convince kd to tank
does that extension include mandatory regenokine treatments?
ifso, that money is totally worth it. this is what we're getting you guys
@ Luke one?
@Thunder_Blue @yarkmu shocking right? you mean to say people don't like being put under the gun?
1 month ago on Thunder keep spiraling in Memphis, 85-74
seems like in his quest to be sustainable, prest's gonei too far and forgot that players are people too. if you're constantly trying to crush dudes contract wise, they get resentful and push back.
@SeinfeldOKC (What if Brooks was Black?) it can't get any worse in this situation. low minutes. constantly getting benched. waiters gets guaranteed minutes regardless. why wouldn't he want to leave
@SeinfeldOKC (What if Brooks was Black?) i think reggie's just made up his mind to leave
@SeinfeldOKC (What if Brooks was Black?) that's fair. he's having a shitty year. but we can't ignore the impact the organizations had in contributing to that
@bmuelle23 it's like they think we don't have access to the internet or something and only consume content from their PR dept
@King of Carrot Flowers the third if someone brought in a worse player than me and gave him unlimited burn, and benched me for doing the same thing that other guy did, i'm jacking shots whenever i get a chance.
we can all criticize reggie for the selfish plays he's made this season, but really, he has no reason to trust the organization either. he's seen what they've done to harden. no reason for the org to do him any better.
@bmuelle23 like when george costanza does the opposite of everything
good pt about kd tracking stats to be more efficient and reggie doing so for a contract. but hey, guys get selfish when rotations are mismanaged
@d21 oh god like we need more reasons to not shut down kd and russ
1 month ago on Thunder vs Grizzlies: Pregame Primer
we better not pay the tax to keep this version of the team together. the irony. imma lose my shit if we pay tax this year
@Jmb4119 the org spends no money on assistant coaches. mark bryant was a shitty big when he played. not shocked that our bigs are crappy. good assistants cost $$$
i'm on board with the team finding new announcers too. we need to clean house. brian davis is the kendrick perkins of play by play
i don't understand how serge's bb instincts have remained so shitty. he plays so much basketball. at least russ kinda has an excuse because he's so volatile emotionally
@Old Man Game reggie gets on my nerves alot but brooks benches reggie for shit that russ does all the time too though. it's gotta be frustrating
