OKC loud links: Monday roundup

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Here is today's collection of stories involving the Thunder.

Various and sundry.

Morning Tip | Sports Illustrated

Aldridge's weekly mandatory reading. He does touch a bit on the OKC situation, addressing both James Harden and Eric Maynor.

5 Things You May Have Missed | NewsOK

Mayberry touches on some of the things we've gleaned so far in this preseason. My favorite - addressing Perry Jones III for his diverse skills. I'll write this - there is no better singular way for PJIII to earn guaranteed rotation minutes than to commit himself to becoming a lockdown defender in the mold of Scottie Pippen. It worked for guys like the Celtics' Avery Bradley, and it can work for PJIII as well.

Daryl Morey: Success or Warning Sign? | the Dream Shake

Here is a pretty good fisking of a story about how the Rockets' GM, Daryl Morey (aka "Dork Elvis") is proving that 'analytic GM's don't really work out.

Michael Jordan's McD's BBQ Sauce Can Be Yours | Ball Don't Lie

A gallon of 'McJordan' can be yours for the low, low price of $10,000.

Previews of the Roundtable: Southwest | Hickory High

The Spurs still get the nod, but their legendary defense slipped notably in the playoffs last season.
