@El Prez @Douse em WAITERADE That's some thing probably every Cavs fans said during his stint with Cleveland.
Dude's shot selection is plain atrocious. Gave up on him before he put on his Thunder uniform.
Would love to be proven wrong. Doubt it though.

@L0rv I'm still skeptic, but even I admit that I didn't envision him building up chemistry with Russ so quickly. Just some simple pick-and-roll action but it looked like they've been playing for a good while.
@L0rv @_justin @lethalizer I've never been a Kanter fan throughout his career, so I assure you that war will never happen.

@_justin @lethalizer I'd hate that, actually. I kinda like being the only Turk around here.
@L0rv @KC_Thunder @_justin I think they will rest him more than they normally would, though. This is the first time KD shouldn't worry about coming earlier than usual. This is a good team that can survive his absence for a good 2-3 weeks.
So, I don't know if I posted my *Michael Cage Drinking Game* idea here before.
Basically, drink anytime he mentions the dreaded "TWO MAN GAME".
Anyone up for it during the Pacers game? I just quit my job, so I will be able to watch some live games for a while.
@_justin HE JUST NEEDS A CHANGE OF SCENERY.
The one time where FIBA set a player back. I seem to remember every player who has attended that championship became a better player overall the next year. Certainly not the case for Faried.
@L0rv @lethalizer @Durants Shimmy He has seemed to do well whenever he started if my memory serves me correctly.
@_justin @lethalizer @lockness11 Agreed, especially with the last sentence.
He has the size, so I'd say his man to man defense will not be THAT bad, but help-wise there will be a whole lot of head scratching around here. That's why pairing him with Ibaka is a must from my point of view.
@_justin @lockness11 I watched him ever since his first-pro days here at Fenerbahce. He bullied his opposition a lot, but always lacked when it came to defense.
Anyone who saw Kanter play would probably say he'd be a HUGE upgrade over Perk on the offensive end. Defense is another story.
@Durants Shimmy Doubt he wanted to be a backup, but he SEEMS like a team-first kinda guy, so I don't know.
@ILikePancakes @lethalizer Ah, got it. Yeah, not a surprise. Probably first time since Hedo being on the 09 Magic since a Turkish guy has been playing on a contending team.
@ILikePancakes Haven't seen any yet besides me, and I've basically been here for 3+ years. Where are they?
@cybrook (formerly boli34) Definitely some #firstworldproblems right there.
I saw a double team last night. They doubled Enes Kanter in the post.
An OKC center.
Being doubled in the post.
Am I allowed to cry, or would I just remind you guys of Reggie?

@Perk had a lot of value Spit out my coffee reading this, too funny :)
Novak will do wonders for team chemistry. Plus, if needed be, he can even be in the lineup when some crucial shots are needed a-la Daequan Cook back in 2011 and 2012. Just to provide some kind of spark.
@El Prez My worry with DJ is, he's never been a good backup. Always been a good starter though.
We'll see if he can adjust here.
1 week, 1 day ago on Trade Day Breakdown: Wait, what?
@d21 (That's wassup) With Westbrook playing the way he is, KD really shouldn't suit up tomorrow.
@KC_Thunder @lethalizer @El Prez Lol, don't care for the likes. Just my informed basketball opinion. Sorta followed Kanter ever since his high school days. Has a higher ceiling talent wise than Adams, but never made the effort to reach his ceiling, and I doubt he will when he is here.
@El Prez @lethalizer As a Turk, I'd rather see Adams on the floor than Kanter, for what it's worth.
Brace yourselves, bandwagon Turkish fans are on their way.
Oh and by the way, hi everyone!
@sammasaaron @lethalizer Where did all his 20k+ likes go, then? Complete new profile?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Warriors embarrass the Thunder, 117-91
Wait, so is this @_justin the same one as the old justin? who went by the name brooks' fault for a while? Or did things change a whole bunch while I was away?
@N0tres The big move: Lamb gets dealt for a future 2nd rounder.
You heard it here first, folks!
@Divine Mortal @lethalizer @Old Man Game The guy is a high-usage type of player who won't get nearly as many touches as he would like. Of course that is worrisome.
Well, with OKC's record this season, a championship is nearly impossible, so the risk may be lower than I imagined, but still.
@Divine Mortal @lethalizer @Old Man Game I'm not including Lance Thomas in this equation.
Just imagine him as a free agent, my same worries apply.
@Divine Mortal @Old Man Game I'm not sold on that low risk part. Time will tell though.
@Old Man Game Hash really turned the tables for us, so why not Dion? #whynot
@d21 (Men lie. Women lie. Buckets don't) @lethalizer "Dion Waiters is a great player, and he will continue to do great things for us."
@d21 (Men lie. Women lie. Buckets don't) What will KD' text though?
@Perk has a lot of value @Slim Reaper (#DionWaitersFaction) Well Waiters is a hilariously bad catch-and-shooter, and while I haven't looked at his numbers, Reggie can't be worse than him. So if Brooks said that, it'd make sense.
Not sure how Reggie would react to it though.
@Marko (Lacoste baby) I stand corrected, THAT'S DION WAITERS
@King of Carrot Flowers the third Is that Dion Waiters?
@Marko (Lacoste baby) @RaymondMatthewJurie @lethalizer Who, me or @RaymondMatthewJurie ?
@Marko (Lacoste baby) @lethalizer @RaymondMatthewJurie Ah yes, Goran Vlaovic. The guy who took Alpay Özalan to school back in Euro 96. Will never forget him.
@RaymondMatthewJurie @Marko (Lacoste baby) 98 World Cup flashbacks in my head.
Slaven Bilic, our current manager was in that squad IIRC.
Oh, and Suker was a f.cking beast in that torunament. Good old times
@BangBangThunder Reggie has been doing some foolish stuff this season with Perk being there, so I wouldn't bet on that line of thinking.
@Divine Mortal @lethalizer @Sustainable Parameters @King Prodigy [Thunder 2015 NBA Champs] @Hammer Down Thunder Up
Yeah as a backup C in the long run. For this season a starter as well. Won't happen anyway, but I'd like the fit.
@Sustainable Parameters @King Prodigy [Thunder 2015 NBA Champs] @Hammer Down Thunder Up I'd take his brother in a heartbeat, tho.
@CompromisedMorals @lethalizer That's the response for my reply because..?
@Slim Reaper (Aka. TheTwoHeadedMonster) It's not about Lance Thomas. It's about Dion Waiters. This team needs more low-usage guys, guys like Morrow. Not guys like Waiters.
If my team lacks a ball-dominant guard who loves to make plays and attack the rim, sure, I'd give Waiters a chance to rejuvanate himself.
On this OKC team? This trade smells disaster even from Turkey, and I think OKC and Istanbul have roughly 6000 miles between them.
@kendrick porkins That trade machine just bases wins on PER alone. So that +3 win projection should be taken with a grain of salt.
And besides, why the heck would Philly do that? Sims is a young center who would be a good back up to Embiid in the following seasons. Just doesn't make any sense.
@Slim Reaper (Aka. TheTwoHeadedMonster) @kendrick porkins Another key question: How does Dion fit OKC's style?
Oh that's right, he does. Another iso type player, but unlike the ones the Thunder have on their team, he has never been efficient throughout his career.
@kendrick porkins I doubt they would, but even if they did, who would they send back to match the salaries?
@Slim Reaper (Aka. TheTwoHeadedMonster) Key question: On how many shots?
Hey Royce, no offense but..
Did you really call Dion Waiters a "high quality scorer" in your trade article?
Oh wait a minute, you did: "They added a high quality scorer and someone that has proven he can excel in a bench role."
Still in tears, that was some good stuff
@Tronchaser @lethalizer take care tron!
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Thunder vs Wizards: Pregame Primer
YEAH BABY THIS ONE'S IN THE BOOKS!Bye from Turkey, it's 5:30 a.m here right now so I'm goin' to bed.. see you guys later
@Tronchaser @lethalizer Work has been crazy, that's why I haven't been around as much
