Broken Arrow, Ok.
Medical field (NICU)
Ok I have a few questions. First is why is Perk playing 23 minutes in this game? We do have alternatives for teams like Miami. What happened to us on the boards??? Why did James have so many wide open looks with no one within 10 feet of him?
The trade deadline is coming.............What to do......What to do?

Wow. That's the first Thunder game I've been able to watch in a while. Total team effort. Good ball movement. Russ, KD, Kmart, Thabo & Serge all in double figures. Perk did a good job slowing down Cousins after his initial burst. Plays of the game? KD's and Reggie's dunks were highlight stuff. I didn't know that Reggie could fly like that! Russ is trending so well. If his shot isn't falling, he keeps shooting but he's also looking to dish and some of his passes were absolute lasers. Nice win :-)

@El Prez Hey there Andy, this is Red. :-) Can I pick your brain? What are your thoughts on a trade for JJ Barea? Could he fit in? Do they need a guy like him? The times I've seen him play against our Thunder, he's been like a fly at a picnic. Always in your business and too quick to swat.
@Todd71 Todd is that you from the DOK boards?

@El Prez Dang I wish I had been on this site a whooooole lot sooner. This board is by far and away better than the DOK ever dreamed of. I pretty much completely agree with everything you just said. They acquired him to be the 'bad boy' in the middle, not because of offensive prowess. I have to agree, he needs to step up. When he "brings it", he's a bad a$$ like no other.
Off subject, sort of. Point blank, would you rather have Russ or James Harden on the floor starting for a team you owned?
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder outlast Dallas in an overtime thriller, 111-105
@FF_pickups Ok I'm trying to learn something here. Are you speaking of team offense, team defense or both. I absolutely love Nick Collison's skills but does his presence alter the paint area with any given team's method offensively? There's no doubt he has a better offensive skill set, but what about defensively?
@FF_pickups That's really interesting but what does it really say? Lots of variables could completely skew this. It is an interesting take though. Thank you.
Wow is all I can say. This team, when playing to their potential can beat anybody, anytime, anywhere. Think about it. The Thunder have the 2nd best record in the league with Miami and have yet to play a complete game to their potential. That they can play like they did last night and still win, is amazing.
The one stat that absolutely shocked me was Serge's game. How in the world do you score 19, collect 17 boards, have 5 blocks, only 1 turnover and ONE personal foul? How does that happen spanning 41 minutes in a tight game? ONE personal? Are you kidding me? Anyone banging on Russ needs to seek professional help now. Not next week, right now. Yeah I can see bangin Perk, but he has his role and is the perfect fit against certain teams. Much of what he does never shows up in a stat column. He's not a gazelle, he's a bear and the presence of a bear will change what most people do even if said bear never touches them. Anyone disagree with that theory?
@El Prez Still workin on that boat I see :-)
6 months ago on Thunder keep streaking with 113-103 win over the Kings
@Gyella Yes indeed it is amazing. Bad decision in my mind. Exposes people's privacy to complete strangers. JMHO I won't be doing it. That much I know for sure.
@El Prez Dude! And you left us here?? What's up with that? Have fun, have one for me and Thunder Up!
@ThunderChick2010 Where do I sign up for membership? :-)
@Tronchaser So that's your story and you're stickin to it? Good stuff. :-)

@ThunderChick2010 Kinda hard on yourself? Well I'm here to learn and cheer on our OKC Thunder. Very interested in how KMart has changed this team. He's a gamer. Russ might be the best PG in the league and KD, well what do you say about KD that hasn't already been said. HOF guy in the making.
@ThunderChick2010 Lol I see that you are as well :-)
@ThunderChick2010 Well sort of. The DOK changed its commenting policy to require FB type comment posting to "validate" user comments. For God's sake, its a sports forum! Pus the fact that my FB profile would give anyone the ability to locate me who is a complete stranger! I'm not ok with that. My FB friends know me and its all good. No way I'm opening myself to some nut case to learn anything about me.
And no El Pres is not paying me. He's a class act :-)
Wow I didn't know this board existed! I'm a newfer here for the first time thanks to the DOK's change in commenting policy. This is way better anyway! I miss El Pres and Todd from the DOK boards, Smart guys to be sure.
