OKC Loud Links: Glacial

Very little news has permeated today, as the lockout is all but at a standstill and players are still weighing their options behind the scenes.

Wins Prevented | Wages of Wins

The WoW crew created another statistical derivative of their Wins Produced metric. This time around, Galleti examines how each player's opponents did against him vs the rest of the league. I'm sure some more synthesis of this stat is in order, because the results are downright weird.

Here is another look at what some of the players are doing in their off-season, most notably some former UCLA players, including Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, and Baron Davis.

Retro Diary: Magic vs Bullets | SB Nation

Prada provides his next entry into his look back at seasons past. This time out, he watches a game from the 1995-96 season, featuring two young upstart teams at a time before Washington changed their name and logo. Even in their dysfunction, this Bullets team was kind of stacked.
