OKC Offseason Grade On a Curve | Daily Thunder

Young runs down all the moves that the Thunder have made (so far) in this offseason. When the main mission is, "don't screw anything up," even small errors in judgment are magnified.

Where Do Rebounds Go? | Court Vision Analytics

This is a very interesting analytical study, and provides a lens through which we should be watching the Thunder in the future. Specifically, how do Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka position themselves whenever Kevin Durant launches a 3-pointer from the wing?

Dumb Move, Dolan | Grantland

The silliest/most remarkable aspect of this affair is how James Dolan actually argued that he was hurt by Jeremy Lin's negotiation with the Rockets. Really.

Kwame Brown Will Start, Says Doug Collins | Ball Don't Lie

Amnesty Elton Brand, sign Kwame Brown and start him. I tend to think that a team should finish higher than an 8th seed while knocking off a team that isn't missing its best player before they go walking around having "I'm Keith Hernandez!" moments. And by the way, Collins was the guy that drafted Kwame way back when, a good omen, I'm sure.

Makes perfect sense. Just don't forget, JaVale and his mom come as a package deal.

Perkins and His Music | SLAM Online

One of the more interesting things in this interview is that Perk used to play baseball. Now there's a sight.

LeBron is Underpaid, Utah is a Great Place to Be | Wages of Wins

I've never been to Utah, but no arguments here regarding LeBron.
