Sigh. Welcome to life without Durant.
3 hours, 19 minutes ago on Kevin Durant says he’s not going to rush back to the court
The fact that Perkins started over Adams in the playoffs is MINDBLOWING

We only have one scorer healthy on the roster.
@harmlesslyfatal @mattchant That's the thing, sometimes we're gonna lose leads off the bench. We need Reggie to be effective, and if he's not, it'll be a problem. We're not used to a .500 type team around here, but that's what we have right now.

@harmlesslyfatal @mattchant Our bench is going to be thin. That's what happens when you lose KD. Keeping Russ as effective as possible for his minutes on the floor needs to be our priority offensively.
@harmlesslyfatal You want to watch Russ try to drive into a packed lane every possession? Or give up on the idea and jack up 3's?
@harmlesslyfatal Why not? Russ needs floor spacing to be effective, so Morrow needs to start. Overall, that's a strong defensive lineup.
@PostBeardStressDisorder We've figured that out and the answer is no. He averages 10 and 5 per 36 on bad shooting. There's nothing there.
Lowe's article nails it. If this is really a 15-20 game injury, we'll be all right. Will probably cost us HCA, which might cost us in the playoffs, but grand scheme, we're alright. If it's longer and goes into January though? Or if there's reinjury, as is pretty common with this break? That would be brutal.
@MarkBruty @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] It's decently talented, its very far from superbly talented, especially in the West.
1 week, 2 days ago on Five questions on what Kevin Durant’s injury means
@Old Man Game Maybe he meant foot injury? Even so, Lisfranc seems more common.
1 week, 2 days ago on Kevin Durant likely out 6-8 weeks with ‘Jones fracture’
@kevindurant35 Are there actually people who say that?
Maybe Clay's not sure if KD is worth a max deal anymore.
@L0rv @mattchant Iverson was very effective for a long time, that's a decent comp.
@L0rv ....in OKC
@OohWeeItsVelvetHoop He hates Clay, it's never happening.
@OohWeeItsVelvetHoop I don't want KD to have a screw in his foot.
@Julius F Wrek @OohWeeItsVelvetHoop He's weed wolfin'
@Jooseppi @mattchant I agree, but teams won't just leave Jackson, or (gulp) Lamb, wide open. They will with Robes.
@Jooseppi @mattchant We need the floor to be spaced for Russ to be most effective. This is Russ's team, and the lineup needs to be designed around what he brings to the table. He needs shooters on the wing, and an open lane to drive.
@Jooseppi @mattchant It'll take two. Let Ibaka guard the rim.
@Jooseppi Nah, its way more important to replace KD's scoring than his defense. That's the problem right now.
@ERROR72 I mean, Russ's supporting cast blows for the "this is Russ's team" scenario. He just has to keep us afloat.
@OSBC Not huge imo, he should be 100% for the playoffs. Feet are worrisome though.
@Old Man Game @Jooseppi People on here? It's going to be a dominant thread in the NBA media generally.
If Brooks insists on keeping Robes in the starting lineup, starting Morrow for KD would make sense. Keep floor spacing intact for Russ at least. If we put out a bunch of non-shooters with a clogged lane for Russ, we're gonna have a bad time with pull-up 3's.
@WestCrook Don't really care about seed at this point, we'll be on the road for the toughest series anyway now.
@Fastbreak Go away.
@El Prez @mattchant @FckLbJ http://imgur.com/Q2ejg4T
@FckLbJ I hope we definitely do not rush Durant back from a broken foot.
@MakesNoSense He hates Clay.
Need to start Jackson now imo. It'll probably take Brooks 5 games to realize it though.
@ Luke @mattchant Yes, but so is this.
@ Luke Foot injuries are very worrisome, I don't agree with that conclusion. Would've preferred a broken arm or something.
@anonymous12345 Let's not have Lamb gun on a team that has Durant and Westbrook as offensive options.
1 week, 4 days ago on Preseason Thoughts: Thunder 118, Mavericks 109
@thelaughingwiseman Broken foot
@anonymous12345 @mattchant When we win a ring. And Elsa realizes that she was completely wrong about that song, it's kinda the point of the movie.

@Turf is always Greener @Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction Deron if we're disregarding contracts. His upside is way higher if he can get healthy. Even if not, he's a much better shooter.
Why is it better to pay Reggie 9-10 million per than Harden 14 per?
For those who forgot, Westbrook averaged 27, 8, 7 and 2 in the playoffs. Freak.
1 week, 5 days ago on Thursday Bolts – 10.9.14
@Marko (Lacoste baby) @mattchant I don't really agree, I think particularly with Memphis, we should just outscore them. Perk is effective, but lends us to playing their game.
@durantulous @mattchant Russ played 39 last year, I think he can handle it.
@McLasch @mattchant I'd use Collison for Adams foul trouble.
This is what I think our playoff minute allocation should be, assuming this is the roster.
Kevin Durant- 42
Russell Westbrook- 39
Serge Ibaka- 38
Reggie Jackson- 35
Steven Adams- 30
Anthony Morrow- 20
Andre Roberson- 20
Mitch McGary- 12
Kendrick Perkins- 10
@_justin @mattchant Perkins will play less than Adams bar injury, that already happened in the playoffs last year. Fact is, we need Adams offense in the starting lineup.
@_justin @shiki Its nice to have groupies.
@_justin @mattchant Should see it every night at the start of the game. ;-)
Westbrook-Jackson-Durant-Ibaka-Adams was dominant in limited minutes last season. Just roll with it.
@_justin @mattchant @shiki @AIaska Reggie's a lot better than Robes, he doesn't need to be better than Harden.
