In College Park, MD. / Washington D.C. right now....we met a high school girl who found out we were from Oklahoma and wanted to talk about the thunder. She said she thought about moving to Oklahoma City someday because it just seemed like an awesome place to live from seeing it on tv. Impact of the nba...changing the way young people think about OKC.

Even though I have been a bigtime proponent of having Harden come off the bench...this series I start him. It comes down to who are you going to have Thabo guarding out of the starting group for SA. I would use Thabos minutes to check Ginobli, sometimes with Harden on the court as well. Obviously either Durant, Harden, or Westbrook would have to be on the court at any given time, but it seems like wasted minutes to have Thabo starting and then pull him out when you need to guard their best perimeter player. I also use Harden on Ginobli for part of the time...but having Thabo take some of those defensive minutes should help keep James fresh and active on offense.

@Keith00 @f5alcon @Skyline Didn't that just happen a few weeks ago? I don't know about 100 pts, but I thought all 3 scored 30+. Maybe it was just a dream. LOL

"I don't want support for what I did," World Peace said. "I still love my fans, but I don't want to be supported for (that). Even though he came and ran up behind me and he's done that before to Tyson Chandler and other players and he flopped even in the series (against Dallas) in the first round, but I don't want support for that."

This article has some of the same Artest quotes as the yahoo article...but it also as several even more inflamatory quotes. Talk about bulletin board material. OKC - no, the entire state - is going to be hyped up beyond belief.
@Crownme Just pointing out I never said I had a problem with it. You definitely don't want to go around giving out bulletin board material to all your biggest rivals. The overexposure of athletes to the media has led to robotic answers as a form of self preservation. It's just a product of the times we live in. Still, it's funny when the answer doesn't address the question in any way.

@Old Man Game @ThunderChick2010 Great point. It really doesn't matter what question is asked, the answer is always the same. Westbrook always talks about defense and rebounding and is sure to mention his big guys, Durant always talks about one game at a time and not wanting to get too high or too low about 1 game.
This is an extremely confused attempt at journalism...is he listing what the positive attributes the lakers are missing, or is he listing the negative things they are stuck with? Can't make up his mind.
"The Lakers are good but they don’t seem to have all the pieces of a contender — consistent defense, weak transition defense, good bench depth at the two and four, and they still struggle to shoot consistently from the outside."

Russ drive and shot to end the 3rd quarter MUST be top play. That one handed crossover full speed was just sick...then he stuck in the dagger. Ballgame!

On the KD commercial about Doodlejump he says that time was running out with no one to pass it to..then it shows Durant isolating while Nazr stands all alone begging for the ball. Yeah, this is pretty much an accurate portrayal of the NBA's version of crunch time offense. I know it's just a commercial but this is one of my major gripes with NBA basketball. If two guys want to guard Durant 30 ft from the basket, why can't 4 nba quality players get a good shot off against 3 defenders. Drives me nuts.
4 reasons why I like the Fisher signing:
1) Ownership is committed to winning even if it means spending extra money. The only thing this costs us, besides Ryan Reid (not a piece going forward), is cash from the owners pockets. Thank you ownership.
2) Free Agents WILL come to OKC - Fisher had his pick of destinations and chose OKC. Just goes to show you that the right atmosphere and winning will bring free agents to our humble city.
3) Leadership - Derek Fisher will have the same kind of impact that Perkins has had on the team. He is a true professional who will help this team mature.
4) On Court Play - How often have we longed for the steady hand of Eric Maynor to step while Russ is on the bench. Fisher can be that calming, change of pace kind of guy who doesn't need the ball in his hands. His game will go very well with James Harden.
This signing is a big deal for OKC. It shows that the right kind of free agent will gladly head over to our neck of the woods in hopes of winning a championship. Go Thunder!

@Old Man Game LOL...Considering it was the Oscars and not the Grammys. But I 2nd the idea that Best Male Lead went to.....KD.
persiansooner He lost me when he started going on and on about how Doc Rivers needed to be complaining about a foul that WAS called. Wait, so now you gripe at the refs for making calls for your team? He also seemed to be relying on to lazy stereotypes (Westbrook can't hit the jumper). Ticked me off.
