@justin_mia @OBoymuzik Ive seen Ibaka fly to the rim and do some incredible dunks. Hes already been mentioned as defensive player of the year, if only his offence was consistent
2 years ago on Thursday Bolts – 7.12.12
@OBoymuzik Hes still so young, if he can work hard and improve parts of his game like Durant then he could be a serious force. He has the potential to develop into the best big man in the league if he works really hard
Ibaka is already a good defender and one of the best shot blockers so if he can add an offensive post game he could develop into quite a special player
An Orange alternate jersey would be awesome! Orange/White combinations. Go back to Rucker park, KD looks good in Orange

@TaoMaas Exactly! How can you be sued over a nickname? A nickname is given to you by someone else, so how can KD steal it if someone else started calling him it and it stuck. This dude probably gave himself the nickname "Durantula" in which case it is not a nickname since he gave it to himself.#OldGolddigger

Man what an incredible game! As a Detroit Lions fan I can really can relate to this feeling, to see YOUR team clinch something as important as the NBA Finals in front of a diehard, maximum capacity crowd. Its a great feeling and a moment some of us will never forget, and as good of a feeling as this is just remember this is only the beginning!

Anybody else just feeling a breakout game from Durant tonight?
@Skyline It was originally the Ford center due to a naming rights deal, and they diddent have anything to do with the construction, but since it looked and seemed very similar to ford field I guess I assumed they built it. Still two of loudest venues in all of sports.
2 years, 1 month ago on Tuesday Bolts – 6.5.12
Why does it seem Ford builds the loudest buildings in sports? The Peake For NBA and Ford Field in the NFL have both been credited as being the loudest venue in their respective sports. The lions MNF game was ronkus, one of the loudest events ive ever been to. Tomorrow night in a closeout game at the Peake I expect it to be even louder. Let em know why your called LOUD CITY!
@f5alcon Yeah after two years of trashing us, giving us no respect this entire season, and saying we have no half court offense. Barkey is the first of many Thunder doubters to wake up and realize this is our time!
@f5alcon @Skyline That was awesome! one of my favorite shaq moments.....Barkley can take a long walk off a short dock.
@Dooey21 I like this
@anonymous12345 I respect the patience and still not counting out the spurs, but I would have not asked this question if I wasn't 100% confident our team will close it out tomorrow night at home. This will be the biggest game we have ever played, and when the spotlight is the brightest and is centered directly on Durant he will shine. think of it like this, they still haven't played the best complete game their capable of playing, game six seems like a good opportunity
@DustinMcWilliams @cleandoe I can agree with that! We matchup well against Boston. Ive played the celtics in 2K about a million times, and they rarely win.
@Thunderstruck_24 @MrButterNuts Prepare to get crucified Mr Westbrook, He who shall not be named has a bone to pick with you. If I were Westbrook I would go on there after the series and shut Bushy Bayless up once and for all.
Ok Thunder fans, I know were not there yet buuuut. Who would you rather face in the NBA Finals? Boston or Miami? I see great storylines for both matchups, Perk facing his old family/team, Westbrook vs Rondo, the comparisons between Pierce and Harden. Then there's Miami, our big 3 vs their big 3, The two best players on the planet going head to head for their first rings, the two most talented teams in the NBA. Who ever it is, we will have gone through the hardest road with the most adversity of any team remaining.
@Barry Amenema I agree, Parker and the spurs defiantly tried to come out aggressive and beat us at our own game in transition after Ibaka picked up 2 quick fouls two minutes into the game. They looked like they tried to take advantage of Ibaka on the bench, going into the paint which lead to very sloppy play and a ton of turnovers, which eventually got us going after we came out cold.
@Daniel Plainview Same here, Love em both so much! and both teams are soo similar, young teams on the rise, both have the loudest venues in their receptive sports, both have their superstars and are just looking to put it all together. I was at that chrismas eve game where the lions clinched the playoffs and that high five lap they took around the stadium was our moment equal to the OKC fans welcoming home the team at the airport
2 years, 1 month ago on The Thunder take Game 5, 108-103
@ThunderBelize @Skyline They were talking about this during the game last night, they still gave Miami the slight edge, but I just think that the combination of any two of our 5 best players (KD, Russ, Harden, Ibaka, Thabo) will end the fast break nicely every time.
@ThunderBelize @FF_pickups Agreed! All this flopping in the NBA nowadays is no good for the sport, there should be a foul called, or some type of fine/suspension for the floppers
@Skyline Their BOTH coach of the year material every year. I love brooks attitude too, Saying we are a defensive team first, because the turnovers our D causes fuel our fast break and when you take a look at our team there are 5 guys that can thrown down the Ally Oop when given the chance....Best transition team in the NBA??
@Daniel Plainview GO THUNDER!!!
For game six all I want is the 'best player on the planet' to go HAM. If Durant can put up big numbers in this closeout game he will go from "kid clutch" to "King Clutch" taking on "King Choke" in the Finals
@shiki Pop's got him chained to the bench, especially in Bonus situations
@DustinMcWilliams @FF_pickups @Daniel Plainview Durant is due too! Hes been great all series but has played just a little bit passive. If he comes out firing in game six he could put up 50
@tmoks Yeah Chuck has finally seen the light and admitted "its their time" He's calling it a wrap, and guess what SO AM I, THUNDER IN SIX. The Peake better be pumpin wensday for that closeout game!
@anonymous12345 That may have actually been the best thing that couldev happned, Thabo came in and played good D

@shiki I have to say, I really don't see the Lakers surviving the sweep unless Kobe drops 50 on friday, Saturday is already penciled in as a W in my book
@Brob785 Yea I was surprised too! hes been all over the thunder since last year, saying we have no 1/2 court offense, and before yesterdays game saying "you live die by the jumpers" I guess its good thing Harden kick started the 1/2 court offense last night
I think Charles Barkley explained this best last night. The Lakers have their backs against the wall, game 3 is a 'must win' for them (since nobody has ever comeback down 3-0) They are going to play the game at 110% which plays right into the thunders hands with games 3 and 4 back to back. Even if the Lakers win Friday they will be gassed on Saturday and will probably lose, heading back to OKC down 3-1. If they lose Friday, everyone will smell the sweep Saturday.
I hope Game four proved to many of you that James should be part of our long term plan. Hes our X factor now, heading into this LA series. If I were an lakers fan I would be scared because the BEARD IS BACK #FearTheBeard& alsoI pity the fool that sleeps on Harden! http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/visuals/post/_/id/1640/bouncex3-an-nba-comic-on-james-harden

@dancassidy35 Even the Laker fans think a sweep is completely ridiculous
@jallenmorris Yeah, I always like observing how other coaches use players from other teams, Like Brooks at the all star game putting Westbrook on the wing with Nash at PG. It will be interesting to see how coach K uses Westbrook, KD & Harden this summer
@shorthorns4 Totally agree! He doesnt need to start but he deserves starter minutes and HE SHOULD be more involved late in games. Brooks can run some serious offense through him to get the ball to KD when we need to play 1/2 court offense.

KD should take his love for design and design a Thunder Orange alternate jersey, I think that would look tight.
2 years, 4 months ago on Tuesday Bolts - 3.6.12
@BRY BRY I wish we could have Nash at PG! Seeing Westbrook at SG and Nash at PG in the all star game was making me realize thats where he should be playing. If we had Nash (a pass first PG) then Westbrook could slide to SG and let him attack the basket as much as he wants without the outside pressure on him for assists. KD could see more touches and better opportunities for buckets off of Nash assists. Finally Harden could fit in as a true sixth man, and come in for nash when the old man gets tired.
2 years, 4 months ago on OKC closes the door on the Mavs, 95-91
@Lost Ones @sammasaaron @Old The problem is nobody is keeping Perk in check. Back in Boston there was always Doc or KG to hold him accountable. Doc & KG were always chirping at him, keeping him in the 'mindset', They were pretty hard on him coming up and he had to do alot of growing up to get minutes from doc. Brooks needs to pull him aside, or call him out in the filmroom and let him know: that's the kind of performance we expect from him every night.
@thunderkai I kinda like this, when the organization call out the refs on a blown call that could have changed the tide of the game. As a Detroit Lions and Tigers fan I wish I would have seen our organizations call out the refs for their HORRIBLE calls IE Armando Galaraga's IMPERFECT game, and the Calvin Johnson catch.

@diddoff @gr8ball83 @SammyThundererHey hey HEY now, dont defend Lebron. He gets what he deserves! Give a teenager a body of a god and the naturally gifted skills of Kobe and you have Lebron. The whole "taking my talents to southbeach" nationally televised announcement and the 6 titles they predicted to win set himself up for all this. I still dont get how SUH is the most hated athlete, when everyone always dogs Lebron, I guess one rage moment stomp is enough to pin the dirty tag on him.KD is the premire SF in the league, his shot is butter, his work ethic is off the charts, he is classy always showing his opponents their due respect, The humble superstar is always better than the "hey look at me" superstar, I dont even have to mention his low key demeanor and love of the game. The scary part is he isn't even at his best yet. KD will make everyone forget about LeBron.

@ThunderChick2010 Thanks, both of you. Still gettin used to this site but I love it! IDK how they get away posting the link to the streams, It's awesome for Thunder fans like me that dont like in Oklahoma
Newbie question: Ive only been on this site for a month or two now, So I would appreciate it if somone explained how do you get pts?
@anonymous12345 Agreed, some of those really weren't that bad.
@f5alcon They really aren't even in position to contend with the roster they have currently. If they even make the playoffs with their current roster they'll be bounced in the first round.
@f5alcon Yeah most likely, and this is all assuming Boston decides to make a title run and not trade away: the big 3. Assuming Orlando wants more, the Lakers would probably have to front the bill, Maybe Meta World Peace? I really dont see too many players Boston has that Orlando would want other than Rondo, and if you think about it Rondo would be a perfect fit for Orlando, penetrating to the paint and dishing it out for 3 pointers, pretty much what he does in Boston
@Jax Raging Bile Duct@sammasaaron When he falls and tosses the ball to the closest defender
@Jax Raging Bile Duct Yeah, do they have any set plays at all? Gonna need some come playoff time when we have to run a half court offense. As we learned last year, good teams can shut down a free wheeling Westbrook.
This isn't about the Thunder but yall should still let me know if this trade sounds realistic.
Since the Celtics are on the fence between making a playoff run or rebuilding, if they make a trade this is the one I think could happen.Boston trades Rondo to Orlando, Orlando trades Dwight to the Lakers, and the Lakers trade either Bynum or Gasol to Boston. Orlando will probably want a lil more for Dwight but they could get squeezed into doing it in fear Dwight wont be back, they should take what they can get. Either Boston or L.A (or both) could send a lil more in compensation to make it work.
So what do my fellow Thunder fans think? Realistic? or am I off on another planet.
@Keith00@f5alcon Yeah, but we already know for sure that this team CAN contend for a title. last year we lost to the eventual champions when Dirk was playing outta his mind.

@Keith00@bmuelle22 Yeah I go to MSU, she sadly goes to LCC
If we won the championship, why wouldn't they pay the tax?
@f5alcon If it was Perk or Ibaka, I think it would be Unanimous
@Keith00 What are a few glaring differences between the Thunder and Pistons? The Thunder Draft well, the Pistons do not. The thunder sign good players, the Pistons do not. The thunders front office makes good trades, the Pistons make awful trades.
@Keith00 Well if not Collison, then who? They are going to look at who to get rid of to keep the core intact. Who's next on the list then? I can see Perk because of how much he makes mixed with fans feelings about him. I would do everything possible to keep this lineup. This is a championship contending lineup, with a ton of potential to get better.
@bmuelle22 He's awesome, a very good up and coming player for us, Hes a real cool and down to earth guy, Me and my girlfriend got to hang out with him once.
@f5alcon@Keith00 Wouldn't we be able to afford him if we parted with Nick Collision? Nick is making more than Ibaka this year. Their contracts are pretty close to identical, cut collison keep Ibaka?
@Keith00 Because the pistons are garbage? Blew their one shot to draw fans by drafting Knight over Kemba
@bmuelle22 Ditto! Yeah Im a full on Detroit fan Lions, Tigers, Wings. Pistons get no love, The thunder stole my heart when they took KD
Read the article on Ibaka, It left me wondering how there are so many people on this board suggesting we trade or part ways with him, I just don't get it. Hes a defensive MONSTER moping up after Perkins, and he has the opportunity to take his time to develop an offensive game since we have Durant and Westbrook. He has HUGE potential, Id sign him long term right now so we dont have to spend more later when he is a better all around player.
@T-Fred @shiki@[censored] If they get the ball to Harden he will find the open man
2 years, 5 months ago on A whole lot happened in OKC’s 112-100 loss to the Clippers
@T-Fred @shiki Yeah, stuff happens, hes really young, these games are bound to happen from time to time with such a young group of guys.
@T-Fred @shiki IDK why we would need another good PF. I love Ibaka
@propsizzle@Fezzy YES, Harden needs time to gel with the first unit. Whos gonna play in the final 5 minutes in the playoffs, Harden not Tabo
@eallen7 He's got the Height and length that Durant has, He has his lil jumper that he can hit when left open, and he has the vertical to dunk on anybody. He just looks to tentative out there, but he defiantly has the potential to be a STAR PF.
@eallen7@deleted_1998213_Don'tStoptheSergeing@T-Fred And when Ibaka can start playing good offensively, consistently people will realize
Sooo, how long until Ibaka can develop into a solid offensive player?
@T-Fred @eallen7 Yeah but it wont stop people from talking about how' turrible' they think he is. Hes the rock, the experience, and the guy clogging the paint.
@eallen7 que the TRADE PERK guys
I think if you gave them time to gel all 3 could start. Hardens a great play-maker, he could get double digit assists every night once he got used to starting, they just cant do that until they get a legit sixth man. Or they could just leave harden as the sixth man and bring in a spot up shooter, Ray Allen anybody?
This is why I love this team! This team has outstanding depth, IF any of the 4 bigmen (Ibaka, Perk, Collison, Naz) go down they have a man waiting in the wings, just biding his time before he can show his potential. That goes for you too Reggie! time to step up
