If this continues, by the start of the season half the fan base is going to hate Westbrook and the other half is going to hate Durant

@[weed wolf faction] Just curious, how did you determine that KD was better than Westbrook in the Clippers series? Westbrook averaged 28ppg/6rpg/9apg on 62 TS%. KD averaged 32ppg/9.5rpg/5apg on 61 TS%.(Durant played 4 more mpg). Russ had a 123 Ortg to Durant's 118. Not to mention that Westbrook had to go against/defend Chris Paul the entire series. I think if anything they were even/Russ was slightly better.
@DanielLawler This is true from non Thunder fans/media, but I think they are fairly viewed around here.
This is a stupid debate to have, no need to turn Thunder fans against one of their 2 best players. Westbrook is amazing and Thunder fans are probably too quick to come to his defense because of how often he is criticized. Durant is amazing and probably under appreciated because of how consistently good he is. Its obvious that KD is better than Westbrook but also fair that a lot of Thunder fans prefer Westbrook.
@00000000 Maybe if we were in the east. If you take Durant off this team and replace him with no one Westbrook and Ibaka are not enough to lead us to the record we would need for Westbrook to win MVP.
@OBoy (LaFamilia) I think, assuming Roberson starts, there is only really room for one of them in the rotation consistently.
I'm guessing Lamb gets the shot to start the year but I could definitely see Perry overtaking him by the end of the year.

@OBoy (LaFamilia) @OKC035 Thunder
Who plays more minutes next year, Lamb or Perry?
@Crow Probably not. And I think that falls on Presti for just not putting the supporting cast around them last year to really do anything else. We probably had the worst 5-12 in the playoffs last year while having maybe the best big 4. Serge, Reggie, Russ and KD did all they could to get us as far as we got but the bench was really glaringly awful in the Spurs series. I don't remember the stat but the differential in bench points in that series was staggering.
Hopefully with Adams improvement+ Reggie, Morrow and potentially a Roberson, Lamb or Perry can play well enough this year and Russ/KD will put the trust in other guys and some type of motion offense/ more balanced attack really does come to fruition.
@Crow I think he will definitely get a good chance at the start of the season. If he struggles then maybe he fall out of the rotation. I think the team has to recognize the KD was worn down by the end of the playoffs and along with Russ's past knee problems they will take a more Spurs like approach and not overwork them and play a lot of guys minutes+ a deep bench for a lot of the season. At least I hope.
@Crow I'm not sure how much talent Lamb has to max
@DanielLawler I doubt it. I'm assuming he gets 25+ minutes and he gets at least 7-8 shots a game
There is no real argument for Russ over KD. I'm pretty sure everyone knows that, except maybe Lawler who is the biggest Westbrook fan on earth. Russ was probably better in the playoffs, but even then one playoffs obviously doesn't mean he's all of a sudden better. If this is something that happens for the next few playoffs maybe we can talk. Westbrook is my favorite player.
Should have been the Spurs
2 weeks ago on Why it’s not now or never for KD in OKC
KD with the Russ shout out
I'm guessing Peyton wins it, lets go tho KD
@Tvaddic If Russ has no more serious injuries I'm sure several teams will make a run at him offering max money
That Drake vs Blake thing was pretty funny
Lance about to kill Drake
@D@vid @OKC035 @Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction Haha what? How am I a piece of shit? I try to stay completely neutral most of the time, rarely post strong opinions. I don't think I've ever gotten in a serious argument with anyone. but ok

@D@vid @OKC035 @Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction Do you know hypocrite means? I liked his comment because I thought it was funny. Sorry to hear this offended you.
@D@vid @Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction Thank you
Its weird that Lamb, Klay and Beal all shot under 80% from the FT line last year. Especially Klay who seems like he could be a 90% guy. Also I thought Lamb made the first like 40 FTs of his career, guess he cooled off.
@Jooseppi @[weed wolf faction] Didn't Curry attempt like 8 a game? I wonder if any starting backcourt has ever come close to attempting 14+ 3s a game like that.
@Chandler Bing. @OKC035 @Bryson This is just not true, Klay is a pretty good defender. Much better than Curry. There is a reason that GSW were a top 5 defensive team last year. Its pretty hard to do that with Curry and Lee starting if Klay was also terrible.
@Chandler Bing. @Bryson The difference in 3 point shooting is a pretty big difference though. If Lamb could shoot 40% from 3 he would be looked at in a much different light. Especially since he only shot like 30% from 3 from January on. Also Klay and Beal are both already solid defenders.
@Chandler Bing. I don't even think Lamb thinks that
@Negative Man @Thunder_Blue I like this more
@MatheusCoxa @Chandler Bing. @DanielLawler Yeah i watch a lot of Bayern and he was pretty shit last year. And obviously him and Luiz where a disaster vs Germany.
@MatheusCoxa @DanielLawler I thought both Felipe Luiz and Miranda should have made the national team for the world cup. Miranda>Dante
@DanielLawler Marcelo is amazing going forward, defensively, not so much. And I think the consensus is that Lahm is the best, but not Marcelo being 2nd best. That is definitely open for debate.
@rednuht @OKC035 @yarkmu Yeah i realized right after I posted that that he was traded.
@rednuht @TempBoy Brandon Wade apparently agreed to a 2 year deal for about 30 mil
@TempBoy Brandon Lol I'm not sure i could manage even to get a super team of Lillard, Wade, Deng, Bosh and KD if I was playing 2K.
@TempBoy Brandon @OKC035 I doubt the Heat would be one of his top choices. If he goes anywhere it will probably be Washington, maybe NY
@TempBoy Brandon Almost every fan base in the league thinks their team is going to get KD in 2016
Has there been any reports on who is interested in Tolliver?
Maybe, but I also think how much we used Kmart probably had part in keeping him healthy for one of the only seasons in his career.
Kmart averaged the 2nd most 3s per 36 of his career here. And his usage was only slightly below what it was most of his career.
Kmart was a career 37.7% 3 point shooter before he came here and shot 42.6%. Morrow is a career 43% 3 point shooter.
Dirk and Kobe together would have been fun
This is definitely true in fifa
433 or 4231
Also the fact that in the regular season he shot like 60% from 3 against sub .500 teams and 20% against over .500 teams
I felt this way about Kmart
A community this active really needs mods to enforce things like this.I mean things like profanities don't bother me but I can understand it bothering other people, but there are obvious times where people go over the line/ troll where it should really be dealt with.
I'd agree that it's worth trying. I know the team was successful with Roberson as a starter last year but I think, assuming Perk starts again, that it might not work starting someone who is even less of a threat than Thabo to score.
Did you gather all that from this 2 minute d league highlight video?
And it's terrible
