There guys like Bellineli for cheap. Ridiculous lineup w coach that trusts guys like Butler only even when shooting 20%
5 months ago on Thunder vs. Spurs: Game 2 Pregame Primer
We need some outside shooters that are 2 way players. Caron not near answer. Need some vets that can play off bench. Can't keep developing young players while Russ & KD in prime. CJ Watson type players. We got to many young developing players.
This no Ibaka really just to much to overcome. Another run in Russ & KD prime down tubes. 2 yrs in a row. No Ibaka means it's over. So depressing.

Perk has actually been very good this series. Played his defensive role real well. Problem is Brooks playing Butler and Fisher . Need play Lamb. Can't be worse than Butler unlessLamb just punts ball into stands after catches pass seriously.
5 months, 4 weeks ago on New game, same story: Grizzlies survive Thunder magic again
Green can shoot 3pters. He at least allows spread defense can't leave alone. Look at last year's finals he wasgreat from outside. Thabo disappears offensively every yr in playoffs. He looks scared to shoot even when wide open.
We really have to find some way to get a forward in offseason that can get easy inside baskets. KD could work on post game so when guys like Allen & Lee guarding he can use height to post up. It's evident teams in playoffs always muscle him and make hard to get ball anywhere near basket of entry in half court offense.
While any bashing of Brooks I am all for and agree before even know what said. King one worst GM there is. That team is going to really wish they didn't put team together way did. Luxury tax will be insane and not going to win anything. They mortgaged future for bunch of over the hill player's. Also anyone saw J. JOHNSON and that contact in ATL and trades for him and pays him all that $ is moron period.
Agreed but KD and Russ need to get some rest for late in game so can play defense. They have to create shot on offense all game so just to tired. Ball movement is awful.

I understood the idea behind signing vet like Butler for playoffs but simply put he had not worked out. That happens but come on let's realize it and bring in Lamb. At least athletic and long. He can't shoot worse than Butler had no matter what.
Only way Lamb could be worse for us than Butler is if he punted the ball into stands as soon as received pass. Come on it can't hurt our 3pt shooting.
This team is just not built w enough scoring to win title. Perkins and Thabo on floor means no scoring other than Russ and KD. But Fish and Butler can't defend. Need play a Lamb period. You going to tell me that there not going to play better than Butler? Come on its ridiculous.
Anyone says Lamb not ready or can't use him answer this? How could he be less productive than Butler? Punt ball into stands after catches pass? That's about only way we are worse off than are with Butler playing all those minutes!
Exactly! Bro probably lives w famous rich brother like any brothers would with star athlete for brother. Russ feels that way then bc that tweet is slip of what frustrating Russ by brother in moment anger. That to me is 100% a look into the confidence of Russ in the organization plan for head coach. Big deal in my opinion
IF player's talking about Brooks coaching and have to assume are at least somewhat after Russ bro comment. Then Presti has to fix or lose KD or Russ when contacts up.
Russ bro tweet is very telling. That means him and Russ have talked about Brooks being bad coach. That means player's are not confident in gameplan. Why should they be? Can't win championship with just 2 guys that score. Ibaka good but not used late in games.
So you think Lamb could give less production than Butler had? How by simply catching pass and just punting it into stands? That's only possible way to be less helpful to a team.
Can't win with no scoring besides KD & Russ. Also can't win with Brooks on bench. ..
We need scoring from other player than Durant & Westbrook
Ibaka offense is not good enough when pressure.
Russ bro saying that means Russ & him talked about before. That's telling in my opinion. Presti time pay attention or risk losing Durant or Russ after contact.
Westbrook hurt? I had leave for few.
People can give Presto love and he deserves credit but letting Brooks run a championship team is huge blemish on his resume. Brooks terrible no matter what anyone tries to defend.
6 months, 1 week ago on Thunder vs. Pacers: Pregame Primer
@ThunderBelize People need to relax and know we are fine. Heat & Clippers in first 2 games back with Russ and just played bad defense tonight. It's nothing and we will still get #1 seed in West.
8 months ago on Clippers vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
@ThunderMoneyBall RElax man we will be fine and right the ship.
@Julius F Wrek @OKC035 We will still get it bro. It's losses to Heat and Clippers in Russ first two games back. We will be fine #1 seed still ours to lose b long shot!
@[brooks' fault] @El Prez Now were screwed without Perkins? Yes better pick n roll defender but we can beat Clippers without Perkins just played bad defense today and they were on fire.
@OKC035 Agreed 100%!!!
@[brooks' fault] #1 still man. I honestly think that's definitely not an issue for us at all.
@walkerdog Thank you! Exactly we need to be patient. Heat and Clippers not great set up for overcoming rust and learning to play with Russ back.
It's 2 games and Russ is just back and whole team out of sync. We will be fine. We are a much better team with Russ it's just an adjustment. We played the Heat & Clippers both really good teams. It's annoying I agree, but we will be fine.
To me biggest worry is Brooks preventing us from winning a championship by using wrong lineups vs teams that do not matchup against correct. This team will shake rust off and get going soon and will be top seed in west.
@HookemKD It's 2 games and Russ is just back and whole team out of sync. We will be fine. We are a much better team with Russ it's just an adjustment. We played the Heat & Clippers both really good teams.
@ThunderMoneyBall Come on man stop with that.
@MJOKC @mikecal Brooks will make sure we can't win a championship!! It's maddening and honestly just plain common sense that Perkins doesn't matchup with Heat in any way/ Spotting them 15 point lead is to much against that team!!!
8 months ago on Heat vs. Thunder: Pregame primer
I had to drive home from out of town and planned on watching game on DVR. I couldn't help but look at score and have no idea how we got to this point. Going to try and watch DVR. Why did we lose so bad? Is this the playing Perkinsto long and spotting Heat a 15-20pt lead before Brooks subs him out? Where we just off and not acclimated to Russ or what was it?
@Steve_Scotland @Theoo Yet with KD and Westbrook Brooks still terrible
@Legendary_Dork @MJOKC To say we would sweep Indy I can't understand. They are only team in NBA who seem as hungry as us to win a championship. Playoff basketball is slwed down and more defensive. I am sure you know that. My point is Indy defense is legit. Hibbert guarding hoop, George can guard 1-4, and David West just plays tough. West also good offensively and Stephenson has become legit. He is one of most athletic pg out there.
I think Miami has owned us, but Wade knee is not going to just magically heal. If they make finals that's a lot of games in short time period and they can't rest him to often in playoffs. You are right though Brooks can't spot them a 16 point lead by starting Perk and playing him for over half 1st quarter. We are to athletic for them overall in my opinion now. Wade has his moments, but clear;y not same and would rather see Miami than Indiana. Maybe i will regret this statement come finals time. Either way we play our best ball and get common sense coaching from Brooks we should beat any team in NBA.
8 months, 1 week ago on Thunder somehow survive in Portland, 98-95
@CDNBallJunkie Oh he will start 2nd half and spot Miami 15pts again. that's what Brooks does!
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder vs. Heat: Pregame Primer
@lethalizer What if he starts Perkins 2nd half and plays him 10 minutes and we go down 15pts? Still feel good about Brooks?
If Brooks starts Perkins 2nd half is there seriously any chance he will ever learn after that early lead we gave up?
@Brookies4Life Brooks worst coach. Guarantee he has no clue how to make that simple adjustment.
@AIaska Get ready
@FrankFang Wait Brooks will start 2nd half with perkins and relinquish lead and any chance.
@C-Wil Just worried Brooks brings starting 5 out after half and ruins this game.
@Zach99 Exactly question I have been asking.
@OSU EE Don't worry Brooks will start the same 5 second half and let Heat get another double digit lead
@Legendary_Dork U think he will roll out Perkins and regular starting 5 begining of second half and let Miami run away with huge lead?
@MJOKC I am waiting to see if he starts the same 5 second half and lets this get bad again.
