WTLC Daily Loud Links: December 17, 2013

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your Thursday Loud Links. Enjoy!

The Thunder are looking to keep piling on the wins on Tuesday night against the Nuggets, but until then, check our these links!

Royce Young of the Daily Thunder came out with their weekly player power rankings and they have a lot of good stuff on there. But none better than this one:

Scott Brooks said this on Sunday after the game when talking about depth: "Like Hash. Hash hasn't played much. He's a very good player. He can play minutes in this league." My takeaway: Scott Brooks has a very loose definition of the word "very."

Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman talks about how the Thunder have made Chesapeake Energy Arena a really scary place to play in.

Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn was informed before Sunday night's game that the Thunder was 11-0 at home and was asked how hard that is to do in the NBA.

"Are you scaring me?" Vaughn jokingly asked in response.

Funny.

We've all seen Roy Hibbert go up vertically to contest a shot and it has produced some REALLY questionable calls and SBNation's Mike Prada takes a look to see if Hibbert has become too good at doing it that they're even letting him commit fouls now?

Have we reached the point where Hibbert's reputation for maintaining verticality when protecting the rim has exceeded reality?

Nick Young, AKA "Swaggy P" (I like that one more) had a spot interview on NBA Gametime recently and he just completed his interview like only Swaggy P can. Here are the six best moments of the interview.

On where the nickname "Swaggy P" came from: "I think if you look good, you play good. So you know, the 'Swaggy' starts with how I come in the arena - how I dress, the shoes I wear. The 'P' is a mystery. I can't tell you that right now. I might write a book someday."

And last but definitely not least: I really want to hear some captions to THIS video of Commissioner Stern because I watched it about ten times and laughed every single time.
