@Jooseppi @AIaska Advanced stats do not suggest that Lamb is a bad defender.

@[brooks' fault] @mattchant @ Luke @Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo No. Fisher is primarily a 3 point shooter in our offense. Lamb shoots more 2's than 3's, because he has a much more diverse skillset. And it's entirely unimpressive to have good shot selection when your usage is under 14%, it's unfathomable that he can be shooting under 40% when he's taking so few shots.

@[brooks' fault] @mattchant @ Luke @Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo Lamb's DWS and DRTG beat Fisher's. Lamb shot better from 2 and from the line. Fisher shot a bit better from 3, but then again, that's all he does. Fisher doesn't even average making a 2 point shot per game. How on earth is a guy who is 80% jumpshooter, getting 18 minutes, averaging 5 points per game? Lamb literally averages twice as many made shots per game.
1 hour, 38 minutes ago on Top 10 plays of 2013-14
@[brooks' fault] @mattchant @ Luke @Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo He had fewer "win shares". He has 14% usage. He damn well better be shooting decently, given that he's not exactly Gary Payton defensively. Lamb grades out as a better defender. Lamb also has 20% usage. Lamb's TOV% is also much lower. His assist % is higher, as is his reb %. He's superior in basically every way.

@[brooks' fault] @mattchant @ Luke @Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo Fisher shot 39% this year.
1 hour, 49 minutes ago on Top 10 plays of 2013-14
@ Luke @mattchant @Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo lol, because Brooks is known for his quick trigger with reassigning the roles of players after a bout of ineffectiveness? Brooks has a veteran fetish, we all get it, but this team would've been better served with Lamb getting Fisher's minutes over the last few months. He never got a chance to develop chemistry with Russ.
1 hour, 53 minutes ago on Top 10 plays of 2013-14
@Jooseppi @qrex @Theoo 5th most minutes is misleading, he's been healthy. 7th in minutes per game. He was 25 mpg in Jan, in April, he was 11 mpg. He's definitely been jerked around and had an inconsistent role.

@Jooseppi @mattchant @d21 So you sign more than one guy. We could've gotten Mozgov, or Hill, or Kaman. All of those guys are significant upgrades. And that's before we even begin to consider trade scenarios.
EDIT: if we just did it a year earlier, like we should have, we would've been able to get Robin Lopez.
6 hours, 54 minutes ago on The Side Part: Week 25 – Starships vs Goblin
@Jooseppi @mattchant @d21 The full MLE is 5.3 million, plus we would've had our other exceptions.
6 hours, 58 minutes ago on The Side Part: Week 25 – Starships vs Goblin
@d21 @mattchant @Jooseppi You get someone else with the 9 million dollars under the tax line we would've been. It's apparently not realistic with this ownership. That's why they're cheep.
7 hours, 1 minute ago on The Side Part: Week 25 – Starships vs Goblin
@d21 Is this ESPN's pot shot at CBS's Gottlieb? How about some of Chad Ford's predictions.
7 hours, 3 minutes ago on The Side Part: Week 25 – Starships vs Goblin
@Jooseppi There was financial room before if we used the amnesty like any other team in our position would have.
7 hours, 4 minutes ago on The Side Part: Week 25 – Starships vs Goblin
@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @d21 @Turfright So that it's not actually an asset you're giving up, it's just something to make a trade work.
11 hours, 5 minutes ago on Thunder lock up No. 2, edging the Pistons 112-111
OKC opens as a 6.5 point favorite for game 1.
12 hours, 27 minutes ago on Thunder lock up No. 2, edging the Pistons 112-111
This is the best result that we could've reasonably hoped for. The pick is as high as possible in a loaded draft.
12 hours, 28 minutes ago on Thunder get the Mavericks’ protected first round pick
@[brooks' fault] @mattchant Bledsoe's getting damn close to the max if he doesn't get it, and that Dragic contract is going up. You want to trade an under long-term contract Westbrook for an about-to-be-max Bledsoe, and Dragic's expiring contract? LOL.
1 day, 5 hours ago on Film Study: Baseline backcut
@Reggie Jackson for MIP or 6MOY Harden and Stephenson are not similar players, so I don't know what you're asking.
@[brooks' fault] Rather have Westbrook and Harden than Dragic and Bledsoe for basically the same price, lemme tell ya.
@eyeblockyeh Durant ascending to simply being the greatest player in the game.
That was always obvious. Just didn't want to pay, guess the dynasty wasn't worth it to Clay.
1 day, 5 hours ago on Harden: Money was the deciding factor in leaving OKC
@TempBoy Brandon @okcjim 17 seems more realistic than 15.
2 days, 7 hours ago on Kevin Durant is, without question, the 2013-14 MVP
@DJ_Yardman @Di_Charden @Julius F Wrek Kawhi is getting the max if he wants it. He's 22, his upside is ridiculous, and some team with cap space will gamble that he can be a superstar. Worst case, he's an overpaid very good player, because he's already there.
5 days, 21 hours ago on Thunder destroy the Pelicans, 116-94
@35 4 MVP @[brooks' fault] Clips need to beat GSW, then road series against OKC and SAS, then probably the Heat to win the title. That's a brutal path.
5 days, 22 hours ago on Pelicans vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@35 4 MVP @harmlesslyfatal Someone is coming out the East, whoever it is will have a solid shot to win a title, and that someone is probably going to be Miami. *shrug*
@35 4 MVP Do you disagree? Spurs have the best record and home court throughout, and the easiest path of the West contenders (only need to beat one of OKC and LAC to make the finals). The Heat basically get a bye to the finals. We might be just as good, or heck even better, but we're gonna need to play on the road before the finals, and win the most games against elite teams.
@KingofGivingupMoneyBalls @ Luke Because that's a 21 year career without a significant injury that you're envisioning.
1 week ago on Thunder vs. Clippers: Pregame Primer
@KingofGivingupMoneyBalls Pop won't give away the 1.
@DanielLawler So is Skip Bayless I'm sure.
Who turned the fouls up to 10?
1 week, 1 day ago on Thunder vs. Clippers: Pregame Primer
It's all good guys, Collison's the 6th best player in the NBA.
If Griffin runs into people, it's a foul on us? Does he have Mario Star power?
Griffin grabbed his arm.
That's a bs call.
That was what Russ intended to happen.
@Spike Bonze Let's get there first, mkay?
CAN'T HANDLE PERK DOWN LOW! FEED THE BIG FELLA!
I loathe Matt Barnes.
DeAndre Jordan is a physical specimen.
Doc thinks the Clippers need a shrink.
First time we've been healthy in forever. LET'S GO!
@Julius F Wrek Soon.
@OKC_Gooner It's LA lol.
This is gonna be fun.
@Keith00 @mattchant Korver and McDermott are not comparables with Gallo. Korver has literally never averaged what Gallo has every single year after his rookie season. And Durant's better at the 4, as is the entire team.
1 week, 1 day ago on Inside KD’s 25-point streak
@Keith00 @mattchant A 15 ppg guy who shoots 37% from 3 with obvious room for growth (he was 24 last season) isn't worth 10 mil a year? And he would play the 3 here with Durant shifting to the 4 after this deal. Robinson would have value as a 6th man for us with Jackson gone.
@AIaska @mattchant Assuming he's healthy, which is obviously a condition of the deal, 2 years of Gallo for like 10m per is definitely the best asset in this deal. Nate Rob can probably replace most of Reggie's production. We clear Perkins salary (and if you think big expiring for bad players are still valuable, you haven't been paying attention to the new CBA). PJ3 is basically filler.
RW-Lamb-Gallo-Durant-Ibaka is a completely unguardable lineup. Gallo averaged 15 ppg for the past 4 years, shoots 37% from 3, and is just 25 years old. We're probably not keeping Jackson at the price he'll command, while Gallo is under contract. We would be a better team next year (probably), and the following year (definitely) after this deal. That following year happens to be the last one of KD's current contract.
@L0rv @mattchant That wouldn't bode well for a series with them.
Trade on RealGM, curious as to people's thoughts.
OKC in: Danilo Gallinari, Nate RobinsonDEN in: Reggie Jackson, Perry Jones, Hasheem Thabeet, Kendrick Perkins, 2014 OKC 1st, future 2nds
We're 3.5 point underdogs tonight. Let's go get an upset.
