OKC Loud Links: Thunder Firing on All Cylinders

The Thunder are on quite the run of exceptional basketball, having beaten some of the best teams in the league in the past week. Things don't let up tonight however, as the grit-grind Grizzlies are making their way to OKC. They're not afraid of anybody, and would love nothing more to make a statement game that they can hang with the best of the best. Tonight's game will be competitive, no doubt.

Coach Nick from BBall Breakdown rattled some sabers when he took on the Westbrook enigma. Props to him though for coming onto the podcast here to defend his position.

The Grizzlies have Zach Randolph back, and now they have Gilbert Arenas. Is that enough to carry them past the giants of the West?

There is a word, a very special and clever word, for someone who becomes so entrenched in their own psyche that they lose the ability to see reality for what it is. And that word is "Skip Bayless."

Rajon Rondo Shreds Miami | Hardwood Paroxysm

Rajon Rondo went all "Rondo" on Miami on Sunday. He remains one of the most bizarre cases of dominance and indifference in the league.

I really enjoy watching this young Celtic make his mark on the league.
