As you may have already guessed, the Professor wasn’t pleased with the Thunder’s play in game 3 and the last time I saw him he was knocking back shots of Wild Turkey while camped at the bar at some sleazy dive on the south-side. I asked what was up with the beverage choice (the Professor is a Crown Royal man), he said, “to honor the Thunder and the way they are playing.... like a bunch of DUMB BIRDS!!!”
When I asked him if he had the player grades he glared at me through sodden, bloodshot eyes then threw a wadded napkin at me and said, “YEH!, there’s your grades....”
I asked if he would like to elaborate on the “I” (incomplete). He tossed back another shot and said, “YEH!!....”
.... but it wasn’t fit for print.
Then he started ranting, “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!!!.. PLAY LIKE YOU PRACTICE!!!....”
“82 GAMES DOING JUST ENOUGH TO GET BY AND THINK THEY CAN TURN IT ON LIKE A... like a.. LIGHT SWITCH.... a light switch...ZZZZZ-zzzz-ZZZ”
I hope the Thunder figure it out soon because I don’t know how much more the Professor or Thunder Nation can take.
